Two Skin Care Must-Haves From Dermalogica + GIVEAWAY

Dermalogica Giveaway

I would describe my skin as combo-oily, prone to the odd breakout and on the wrong side of 30!  I never used to care much for my skin during my twenties, I would cleanse and slap on a moisturiser morning & night – that’s it.  No anti-aging serums, no cleansing oils, no eye creams, no exfoliators, no face masks and no hydrating facial mists.  When I reached the ripe age of 30 a couple of years ago, I noticed my skin was in dire need of some TLC.  Plagued by constant breakouts, a super oily T-zone and clogged pores – I decided to do something about it.  On my 30th birthday, I decided enough was enough and expanded my skin care routine.  I went for a fabulous Dermalogica facial and there was clarity (almost like having a near-death experience… *dramatic much?*).  I was in awe of all the products the Skin Care Therapist used on my skin during the facial and instantly fell in love with 2 particular Dermalogica products.

Fast forward 2 years and my skin has undergone a total 180 – breakouts are few & far between, my skin is looking a lot less congested and my T-zone is actually not that oily anymore (unless it’s a scorcher of a day).

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you will know how much I love Dermalogica – they are a cruelty-free brand that is constantly investing time & money to create the best & most innovative products for your skin.  There are 2 Dermalogica products that really stand out to me, and I’m happy to call them must-haves in any skin care routine (whether you have dry, oily, normal or even sensitive skin) because they are just THAT good.

Dermalogica PreCleanse

As mentioned above, my skin can definitely be described as ‘high maintenance’.  Enter, the mighty Dermalogica PreCleanse (I actually mentioned it in a monthly favourites blog post here).  This is a natural & lightweight cleansing oil that contains Vitamin E, Olive- and Apricot kernel oils.  It works to gently lift dirt, grime, waterproof makeup, sunscreen and other nasty impurities, making it easier for your favourite cleanser to do its job – efficiently & effectively!  Remember: Like dissolves like, so using a cleansing OIL as the first step in your skin care routine will not only remove your makeup but will also gently melt away excess sebum (perfect for oily-skinned gals).

Kukui nut-, Borage seed- and Rice bran oils (fortifying agents) are water soluble & non-comedogenic, plus they help prevent excess moisture loss.  If too much sebum is stripped (using skin care products that are too harsh), your oil glands will simply produce more than what is required to replace whatever had been lost.  And that could be a reason why you are struggling with oily skin.

Conditioning Rice bran- and Vitamin E oils make this a gentle blend that is sensitive enough to be used around the eye area.

Here’s how I use PreCleanse:

I dispense a teaspoon amount into my dry hands & massage all over the skin (don’t dampen your face beforehand) concentrating on the areas where makeup and congestion are heaviest.  I then wet my hands to create a light, milky emulsion & continue massaging it into skin.  Rinse with lukewarm water and follow with my regular cleanser.

It is SO gentle on the skin, and yet manages to banish panda eyes & all other traces of makeup.  My skin feels soft, supple, refreshed and best of all – comfortable.

The photo you see above is a travel sized bottle I received in a press pack, I’ve already been through one full size & one other travel size & will be repurchasing a full size soon.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

Hero product no. 2: Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant.  Cult favourite among many, and with good reason!  This is my ultimate holy grail skin care product  – if there’s one Dermalogica product I ALWAYS recommend to family, friends & readers it’s this bad boy.  I’ve mentioned it on the blog quite a number of times because it has truly changed the way I look at skin care.  I’ve been using the Daily Microfoliant for almost 2 years now and I get excited every single time I use it.

This unique Rice-based powder formula activates when it comes in contact with water & releases Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells, leaving skin smoother and brighter.  It is a very gentle skin polisher that rids the skin of ‘dulling debris’  and dissolves excess surface cells (and as the name suggests, it can be used on a daily basis).  Licorice- and grapefruit extracts then get to work to help the skin look brighter & more radiant, plus will also help even out skin tone and pigmentation over time.  A super-soothing blend of Green Tea, Ginkgo and Colloidal Oatmeal helps to calm the skin, leaving it feeling soft & smooth.

I wouldn’t call this a scrub, it’s more of a buffing product because it is so gentle on the skin.  Just add a small amount of water to the Daily Microfoliant to create a foamy paste, work it into the skin using circular motions, avoiding the eye area.  After about 20 seconds of massaging, rinse off & you’re done!

A full size 75g container of Daily Microfoliant will last you absolute ages – I only use about half a teaspoon of powder at a time.  I’ve had my current container for well over a year and although I don’t use it every single day (maybe 2 or 3 times a week), there is still A LOT of product left.

Both the PreCleanse and the Daily Microfoliant smell absolutely amazing – slightly herby, almost like that ‘I’m-getting-a-facial-at-the-spa’ scent.  These are also formulated without artificial fragrances and colours – this means breakouts will be kept to a minimum and sensitivity will not be aggravated.  PreCleanse retails for R 520,00 (150ml) and the Daily Microfoliant retails for R 850,00 (75g) – both are available at Dermalogica Concept Stores, Sorbet salons and selected beauty salons nationwide (take a look here to find your nearest stockist).

Now for the GREAT part – as mentioned in this blog post, we are celebrating 2 years of beauty blogging here on Pink Peonies.  I have 4 amazing giveaways lined up for this month (March 2015) and today I’ll be giving away a Dermalogica Hamper to 1 lucky reader!  The hamper includes 1 FULL SIZE PreCleanse and 1 FULL SIZE Daily Microfoliant valued at R 1370,00!

    Never ever sleep with your makeup on! 🙂 Wow, I would love to win this!

  2. 2 March 2015 / 12:50

    Once a week I leave a warm face cloth on my face for about a minute or so & then follow by applying a tea-tree anti blemish/anti spot cellulose mask. It does wonders for my skin. Plus Tea-Tree is natural, gentle & helps to cleanse, prevent & rejuvenate the skin.

  3. 2 March 2015 / 12:51

    My secret is after a hot shower i always rinse my face with cold water to reduce the size of my pores

    My skin care (not so) secret is drinking lots of water 🙂

  5. Ally Clayton
    2 March 2015 / 12:54

    My skin care secrets are drinking lots of water and never sleeping with makeup on! Having a combination to dry skin, keeping hydrated is so important. Sleeping with makeup on dries out my skin even more and also breaks eyelashes- huge no no!

  6. Jessica Brink
    2 March 2015 / 12:57

    My tips are: to always double cleanse, layer serum then face oil then night cream before bed, and always always use some form of SPF.

  7. Nirana Krishna
    2 March 2015 / 12:59

    Application of Rosehip Oil at night is my secret. 😉

  8. 2 March 2015 / 13:00

    My secret is to sleep on a satin pillow case. You spend +- 8 hours a night sleeping, so exposing your skin and hair to something softer and smoother than cotton makes sense!

  9. 2 March 2015 / 13:02

    I never sleep without makeup on, I have satin pillowcases which are very gentle on the skin, but my biggest secret is Hair, Skin and Nail vitamin supplements – I can always tell if I haven’t taken them as my skin just doesn’t glow as much!

    • 2 March 2015 / 13:02

      ***sleep with makeup on haha not without – not concentrating properly 😛

  10. Jaclyn Hill

  13. Susann McCarthy
    2 March 2015 / 13:06

    3 step before bed and before work – cleanse, tone, moisturise. Drink water. Always wear a hat in the sun.

  14. 2 March 2015 / 13:07

    Time! That’s my secret! I’ve learnt to take the time to 1.) Take my make-up off before bed 2.) Slap on some SPF when going out 3.) Do the full monty by cleansing, toning and moisturizing no matter how lazy I feel.

  15. Jyothi Laldas
    2 March 2015 / 13:07

    If you run out of make up remover, baby oil does a pretty good job as a substitute.

  16. Simone Cameron
    2 March 2015 / 13:16

    Awesome giveaway! I had the pre-cleanse….a travel sized one and I loved it, but sadly it seems to have gone missing 🙁

    Skin care secret…. I really believe in water! It really just clears up my skin and gives it a glow no product can match. I too suffer from breakouts at random times…I hate it! Am a huge fan of the Lusk Mask of Magnaminty (thanks to you) and I really feel it does my skin a world of good:)

  17. Bonita Beining

    My skin care secret is once or twice a week after I’ve washed my face I take some coconut oil and rub it in. When I wake up my face feels so hydrated and smooth! I love it and it’s so inexpensive! Available at clicks

  23. Janet
    2 March 2015 / 13:23

    Not a secret anymore but I never sleep with makeup on….ever and I don’t use a cleanser on my face everyday if I’m not wearing makeup.

  24. Lynn Botha
    2 March 2015 / 13:26

    Always wash your face properly before bedtime to remove all the make up etc. and make sure you moisurise too 🙂

  25. Carmen
    2 March 2015 / 13:30

    My super sensitive skin needs a lot of attention (including talking to it sometimes). I never sleep with make up. I use a natural mask once a week (sometimes homemade ie avo, honey, coconut oil etc) Drink loads of water (forced most times). I watch what I eat and I say nice things to it!!!!!!!

  26. Ingrid
    2 March 2015 / 13:33

    Hydration: Drink plenty of non-diuretics and a good moisturiser.
    Such a lovely giveaway, holding thumbs.

  27. 2 March 2015 / 13:41

    I’ve used the precleanse to remove my makeup and while I find it to work really great, it burns my eyes when trying to remove waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Great post though and looking forward to your other giveaways 🙂

  28. 2 March 2015 / 13:44

    Oh and my skincare secret is to always cleanse twice a day. The last week has been so hectic and I haven’t been cleansing before bed and now I’ve got breakouts everywhere. Today I made a resolution to always make time to cleanse before bed (even if it’s just with a makeup wipe)

  29. Megs Hartwig
    2 March 2015 / 13:45

    My skin care secret is Live well: exercise, sleep, don’t stress too much, don’t smoke (big one!), limit junk food and alcohol too.

  30. 2 March 2015 / 13:49

    Once or twice a week I have a routine where I exfoliate and use an intensive masque

  31. Shavna Singh
    2 March 2015 / 13:56

    Some coconut oil mixed with a tsp of brown sugar makes an amazing facial (or body!) Scrub. Scrub on your face for about a minute, then wash with your normal cleanser. Smooth supple skin guaranteed 😀

  32. HelenD
    2 March 2015 / 13:56

    I have started sleeping on satin pillowcases, it is my newest and favourite skincare secret! I have not broken out since I started and it doesn’t result in sleep lines on my face. It also doesn’t absorb my skin’s natural oils and keeps my hair soft and shiny 🙂

    Such a fan of your blog, you are officially my fave 🙂

  33. Monique Els
    2 March 2015 / 13:59

    Isabelle Bellis’s “How to clean your face” two part Youtube video totally changed my skincare routine, especially sprtizing the thermal water after washing your face.

  35. Tracy
    2 March 2015 / 14:06

    I exfoliate regularly and drink lots of water.

  36. Lize Hartley
    2 March 2015 / 14:08

    My skincare secret isn’t really a secret per se, but it’s something that’s been drummed into me since I was conceived (basically), and that is: SUNSCREEN! As a kid I got so annoyed by my mother’s constantly reapplying sunscreen to me every five minutes, but now that I’m in my mid-twenties I am so grateful to her! I wear SPF 40 every single day (even if it’s raining, or I’m in indoors all day), and I never ever tan. I drive with gloves on and keep SPF in my car, and I have my skin and moles “mapped” every year. I’m probably borderline heliophobic but my skin is healthy and happy (and not damaged!), all thanks to my mum.

    Following on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and subscribed to YouTube channel 🙂

  40. Desiree

    Light fruit chemical peels every 2 months! Also, makeup free days to let your skin breath.

  60. 2 March 2015 / 22:01

    I wear make up everyday so its very important that I remove all the make up thoroughly. Cleanse, tone and moisturize in the morning and before bed. I use a facial scrub once a week and a face mask when I don’t use the scrub. Water and exercise are vital 🙂 Nothing says healthy skin like a well balanced diet, so I make sure I have my greens, proteins and fruit. Another tip is to keep dirty hair out of your face and change your pillowcase once a week.

    My skin went totally HAYWIRE after having my baby,and being pregnant again its doing the same,I love Dermalogica and it seems to be the oly product that can tame my skin from looking like an ogre.Keep in mind that what you slather on your body has the potential to end up in your bloodstream. Therefore, it’s essential to make wise skin care choices.More than one drink a day can cause increased oil production and enlarged pores.If your favorite day cream doesn’t contain sunscreen, mix it with a lightweight SPF lotion like Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF.ALWAYS wear suncreeen!!

  65. Alexa Pohl
    3 March 2015 / 06:36

    Drink lots of water and get into a good skin care regime. It took me way too long to do this but I can see the results after a few weeks. Skin is happy and healthy 🙂

  83. 3 March 2015 / 13:34

    My beauty secret is to add tea tree oil into your routine, especially over blemish periods. I add it to my moisturiser and even sometimes, depending on severity of blemishes, to my face wash. That and increasing my water intake usually sorts my skin out.

    Did you see that “Jaclyn Hill” commented?

  84. 3 March 2015 / 14:17

    My skincare secret is benonite clay! You can get it at health food stores and mix it with any ingredients imaginable depending on what your skin needs (jojoba oil and yogurt for dry skin, tea tree oil and apple cider vinegar for acne, etc.) Most of all it’s great for congested skin because it draws all of the impurities out of your skin. It’s cheap to buy and will last a long time, and is the ultimate weekly detox.

  88. 3 March 2015 / 17:05

    Always wanted to try Dermalogica skin care products, wow!

    I use anti-aging products every day and make sure I go for a peel once a month, it does wonders for my aging skin.

    I exfoliate my skin every 3 days to get rid of the dead skin and then follow up with a rich face lotion.

    My goodness, what a rad giveaway!!

    My skin secret is to drink lots of H2O and cleanse the skin twice a day. Also a face mask once a week doesn’t hurt. 🙂

  99. 3 March 2015 / 23:37

    I absolutely always wash my make up off every night!
    But I must admit, my skin is in need of TLC. I have sensitive combination skin and it feels even more oily lately. That pre-cleanse sounds like just what I need!

  100. 4 March 2015 / 09:44

    I think my biggest discovery and skin care secret is oil. I have oily/combo skin and never thought an oil would benefit my skin. I now remove my makeup using The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil, which is magic and leaves my skin clean and soft.

    After cleansing, I also use The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum-in-Oil under my night moisturiser and oh my. The next morning my skin is amazing! I’m now really interested in trying Balm Balm’s Rosehip oil and the Frankincense Cleansing Balm.

    what great giveaway! I have never used Dermalogica and would love to give it a try. I have a few things I stick to with my skin: 1. I never sleep with makeup on. 2. I steam, mask and exfoliate my face weekly although I still struggle with t-zone issues and blackheads. And I cleanse, tone and moisturise daily, but I don’t really use serums. I am in my 30’s and not sure if it is too soon to start using it.

    Organic Coconut Oil once a week allll over: Face, Hair, Body. I leave it on for as long as possible by laying some towels on the couch and settling in for a movie or 5. Coconut oil has the most amazing properties and leaves everything soft, supple, fresh and glowing. It’s naturally antimicrobial, antifungal, an anti-oxidant, anti-aging and full of vitamin E!

    My Skin Secrets:
    Firstly good hydration is key – Yes you know it already – Drink Water
    Reduce intake of coffee and alcohol and cigarettes
    Take your vitamins and follow a healthy diet
    Adequate Sleep
    Use satin pillow cases
    Always remove make up
    Clean those make-up brushes
    Replace old make-up
    Cleanse, Tone, Serum, Eye Cream, Moisturise, Apply SPF 30 or alternatively a foundation that contains SPF already (I exfoliate every second day and apply a face mask once a week and do extractions when needed) If you can afford go to a monthly facial / microdermabrasion if needed and a peel in winter (just make sure you stay out of the sun).
    I qualified as a beautician but am a stay-at-home mommy, so unfortunately now I don’t get use Dermalogica so would love to win so I can really spoil my skin.

    My secret.. Stay hydrated! We often forget that we get out what we put in. Dehydrated skin can cause a crazy-long list of troubles, so take your water bottle with you wherever you go and keep a tall glass of H2O next to your bed. A humidifier is also fab in the drier months.

  128. Geraldine

    I use coconut oil (not a lot !) on my face after an exfoliation or a particularly harsh day spent in the sun. The coconut oil helps to keep my face moisturized for longer, and when placed underneath primer, leaves my make-up looking fresh and dewy for 8 hours !!

  131. bilqees bano
    8 March 2015 / 06:26

  132. 8 March 2015 / 09:33

    My skincare secret is to laugh more,love unconditionally and to nourish the body,mind and spirit. Ageing is optional and the best way to age is to do it gracefully! Plenty of water,religious application of sunscreen, exercise, bright coloured fruit and veg and dark chocolate will give you that glow. I truly trust Dermalogica products as the science coupled with natural goodness provides the skin with exactly what it needs! So please pretty please, wave that magical wand so that I can have some Dermalogica magic too!

  137. Roxanne Chutthergoon

  143. 9 March 2015 / 13:31

    I don’t think anyone can find a Dermalogica product that doesn’t work for them, I for one believe that the Multivitamin Power Firm works like a magic iron and it fill the cracks so perfectly that you hardly need a everything stays natural.and with my Skin Smoothing moisturizer I do the multivitamin power serum, I always thought this is the best kept secret but am willing to share that I am secretly addicted to Dermalogica, you can clearly see it in my mood change when I find that my cleansing gel has been shared while left unattended in the bathroom.
