Dermalogica Skin Care Kit/4 Week Update

I took the plunge at the beginning of November and decided to see what all the fuss was about, if you missed my post catch up by clicking here you'll have no doubt heard about Dermaologica and know that it's very pricey, so is it all it's hyped up to be?
Read on the hear my thoughts after using it for 5 weeks....

I have noticed a huge improvement in the amount of time it takes for blemishes to disappear, literally I no longer have to suffer the mountain range on my face for a whole week, it comes and goes within a few days maximum, seriously impressed.

I have to be honest and say that after 6 days of use, as this picture shows I had a breakout, after speaking to some Dermalogica specialists they advised it was just all the dirt and debris coming to the surface and to bear with the products to see the benefits...

So the shot on the left shows my skin 6 days in, I was really annoyed having this erupt on my face but I stuck with it. The picture on the right is 2 weeks in, I have to say I think my skin tone shows some improvement in this shot already, the texture appears smoother, although those pesky pores are still visible! I hate my porous skin!!

I found at around the 3-4 week point that my skin became a little dry, I was using the Skin Prep Scrub everyday and having reduced this to three times a week the dryness has gone.

The Active Moist is a beautiful moisturiser that helps keep shine at bay and is a beautiful base for make up, I love it. Active Toner is a totally genius concept too, the spray application is so refreshing and I love putting it on.I'm not a fan of lavender but the slight hint of it in these products really does give you a salon/spa facial feeling, every time.

Here we are 5 weeks later.....

My make up looks flawless, it's given me almost an airbrushed effect, weather it's simply blurring the imperfections or it's genuinely healing my skin from the inside out I'm not sure, but I like it, and it's given me skin confidence I've never had before.

I have even gone foundation free, OK well a dusting of my trusty Ben Nye Banana Powder but almost make up free, it's a big step for me!

I will now have to look at investing at the full size products, although I do love my skin kits as they are perfect for keeping one set at home and taking one set with me in my gym bag.
My wish list for full size products consists of:
Special Cleansing Gel £27.50
Multi Active Toner £27
Active Moist Moisturiser £44.10
Skin Prep Scrub £28.20

My Dermalogica Specialist also gave me a sample of the Skinperfect Primer £38.40 which is possibly one of the best primers I've ever used, damn it, that one is on the wish list too.

Are you a Dermalogica lover?
I am seriously impressed, yes these products cost a lot of money, but they actually work so I can definitely vouch for the fact that in this case you are getting what you pay for.
