In all the time I’ve been blogging about Dermalogica products, I’ve never told you the story behind the brand. The reason for that is I’ve never questioned it. It’s always just been there as a brand I knew I could trust.
But now that I’ve found out a little about it I thought I’d share it with you. Things kicked off in 1986, when Jane Wurwand, a trained skin therapist, opened a class in Marina del Ray, USA inviting skin therapists to develop their skills and knowledge. Her work there made her realise that there wasn’t a product line on the market that promoted true skin health over beauty. She set out to develop her own vision of a line free of common irritants that would improve overall skin health available from qualified skin therapy professionals and that’s Dermalogica!
Anyway, now that’s been said I can tell you about the Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer. This is a lightweight, non-greasy primer designed to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, to mattify the skin and give a silky, luminous finish. It’s formulated with H2ORelease™ complex and abyssinian oil to provide intense, sustained-release moisturisation to maintain hydration levels.
It has a micro-encapsulated tint that releases on application to provide neutral coverage. It contains whu-zhu-yu fruit extract to enhances radiance and mushroom extract to reduce pore size and appearance. It’s formulated without artificial fragrance, colour or parabens.
In use I’ve found that it’s a really good primer that gives a great base for make-up. I’m not really sure about the micro-encapsulated tint – visually as it comes out of the tube it looks a little greige – maybe mushroom colour – but I really couldn’t see any tint on the skin. Also I’ve only just picked up on the tip to apply it with a damp sponge or foundation brush for added blur. I’m definitely going to be giving that a try because as far as I’m concerned the more blur the better!
The Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer comes in a 22ml size for £38 here.
