There’s no shortcut to beautiful and bright skin. Besides handy tips like hydrating skin by using a face mask often, and using an eye cream to prevent wrinkles, you should also include the best products for your daily skincare routine. The Dermalogica Skin Detox Set is a nifty trio that promises to revitalise tired, dry skin and rid impurities to grant you glowing skin. But how does the skincare set actually fare?
Step 1: Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque (22ml)
The grey paste has a slightly metallic sheen to it, and feels cool when applied onto the skin. There’s a mild sulphuric scent due to the charcoal and ash ingredients—but nothing unpleasant. I left it on for approximately 10 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water. My skin tends towards normal / combination with occasional acne. Since using the face mask, I have experienced fewer blackheads. I recommend alternating this with Dermalogica’s Skin Hydrating Masque for a perfect balance in hydration and deep exfoliation.
Step 2: Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner (30ml)
A few light spritzes over my face were enough to leave my initially dry skin completely refreshed, balancing out the mild tightness I felt after washing off the face mask. Unlike usual toners where you have to pour out a certain amount onto a cotton pad, this is convenient for instant hydration—an essential part of skin care. The mist sprays evenly over the skin and dries easily so I don’t have to wait long to apply my moisturiser. The Multi Active Toner not only smells great, it also contains no alcohol, so you don’t have to worry about sensitive skin after usage.
Step 3: Dermalogica HydraBlur Primer (7ml)
Unlike some primers, this doesn’t feel greasy at all when applied, and does an excellent job at smoothening out the texture of dry skin, especially if it appears flaky. This is a winner for me because the results are instantaneous: my pores, fine lines, and pigmentation were immediately concealed. I also like that it provided a luminous finish—even over slightly dry skin—thanks to H20Release Complex ingredients that provide intense hydration and skin repair throughout the day. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light coverage. My make-up stayed fresh-looking all day!
Dermalogica products have a significantly higher price point compared to brands, but the quality and results make them worth it. This set is perfect for anyone with looking to try the brand without investing on full-sized products first, and also works as the perfect travel skincare companion.
