If your anything like me and suffers from oily skin and breaks out every other day then this is the kit for you! The Dermalogica oily skin kit contains a full skincare regime to care for and treat problem skin. I’ve suffered from skin problems since my early teens and it’s always plagued me! Acne is very stubborn and it’s almost impossible to treat and reduce scarring. I’ve tried many treatments/medication in the past and these did work short-term, how long-term these methods are no longer feasible and cost a lot of money and my health if I wanted to commit to those methods for future use.

WHY Do I like IT?
As I mentioned above I’ve always had a problem with acne since my teens and after giving up medication to treat this I’ve been left with a large breakouts around my chin and neck since doing so! I’ve been looking for different products ever since to help treat and remove acne scarring and keep blemishes at bay. This set is the closest I’ve come to finding products that actually work for me and my skin! I will go through each product and it’s benefits below and how well these products worked for me…
Dermal Clay Cleanser: This was one of my absolute favourites from the kit and something I really enjoyed using! It’s my first experience trying clay cleansers out and you might have seen an old review I done on the Red Clay Mask which totally reminded me of this! It leaves my skin so soft and glowing. My skin just looks so much better after using this and looking healthy too! I’ve also noticed it dries up my spots and reduces redness. It’s a deep cleanser for contains green clays alongside purifying extracts with Ivy and Lemon to remove excess oils whilst creating an uplifting experience and smell. The product is very energising making it perfect for your morning skincare routine and does have a hint of minty freshness to it! It’s hard to describe the smell but it smells like mint and clay mixed together and it’s really nice.
Multi-Active Toner: This smells very fruity and energising! I always use this just after cleansing and find it helps restore moisture and conditions the skin ready for your make-up prep. It hydrates and smoothes the surface of the skin and calms redness with added Lavender oil, Balm Mint and Arnica. I spray this all over my face and throat before applying my BB Cream and foundation and find it leaves a nice matte finish and keeps my skin soft and protected from the elements.
Oil Control Lotion: Again I think this has to be my ultimate favourite from the kit as I notice a huge difference in my skin straight after using this lotion. It instantly reduces redness and calms my skin, whilst providing moisture and creating a matte finish on top of the Multi-Active Toner. It dries up active blemishes and I could definitely see myself buying this again and other products from the kit because this has to be one of the best lotions I’ve come across that works straight away and leaves my skin happy and almost blemish free. I use this every day and can notice my spots reducing in size more and more everyday so very happy with the results of this and can’t wait to keep using it and see how clear my skin can be again.
Skin Prep Scrub: Gorgeous scrub that’s very harsh and really get’s deep into the skin for an ultimate exfoliation experience! This is brilliant and again one of the best exfoliators I’ve used as it’s very thorough and leaves my skin positively glowing. I like using this in the evenings just before bed before applying my night oil as it creates the perfect base to let your night creams/oils sink in deeper and give outstanding results by morning. This scrub really is brilliant and again has that minty fresh smell to it that just feels really energising and increases circulation.
Total Eye Care: Really nice eye cream and I’ve been using this every morning before applying my make-up and really like how it contains SFP 15 to protect the delicate eye area which I’ve never actually come across in other eye cream/gel brands. This helps conceal dark circles and I can definitely notice a difference after using this as it brightens up my under eyes and makes them appear more awake and smooths the skin too! It also has a thick consistency which I like as you don’t need much.
I can’t even express how happy I am with this kit and can’t wait to buy into the full versions and you actually get allot for your money with this set as each sample will last at least a month if not longer! You only need the smallest amount when using these products and they really do make a difference to my skin and another great thing is the fact I got lot’s of free samples with my kit from Pure Beauty which was lovely and a nice surprise too! I really enjoyed using the samples before going onto the full kit and it just gives you a better insight into the Dermalogica brand and the different products.
WHAT I DISLIKE ABOUT IT?
