Dermalogica is a brand I've used in the past but kind of forgot about while I was trying new things - I've recently started using some Dermalogica products (more about that later) and I'm finding it difficult to remember why I stopped using them.
When I was recently sent Dermalogica's new HydraBlur primer I was really excited, I reviewed their skinperfect primer a couple of years ago and absolutely loved it. I've since repurchased and still use it today. Anyway, back to HydraBlur.
The first thing that surprises me is that it's clear - it comes out of the tube white like moisturiser and is totally clear on your skin, no pigment, no light reflecting particles or anything like that which really surprised me. In all honesty I didn't think my skin looked any different after this primer bit I carried on putting my make up on and didn't think much more about it.
However, whenever I wear this on my skin I get people commenting on how good my skin is and asking what products I use so...there's definitely something in it!
It's really lightweight and moisturising and doesn't feel caked on or anything which sometimes layers of primer, concealer, foundation and powder can. I think it's really good for someone that has dry/combination skin like I do.
Overall I liked this primer but to be honest I think I prefer their skinperfect primer as it gives a bit more coverage/pigment which is what I like better.
Here's a little more about the other Dermalogica products I've been using:
- Daily Microfiliant - one of my favourite products ever, it's a really fine exfoliator you mix yourself and it's gentle enough to use every day. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and calm rather than like it's been scrubbed really severely.
- MultiActive Toner - a nice, gentle toner, nothing harsh.
- Skin Hydrating Masque - one of the best moisturising masks I've ever used, it's really hydrating but light so I think it would be ideal if you struggle with heavier products clogging your pores.
- MultiVitamin Power Firm - really good under eye gel.
I'll definitely be repurchasing the Daily Microfiliant and the hydrating masque - plus I've got my eye on their pre-cleanse which I haven't used for ages and their blackhead clearing pore control scrub.
