Digging Dermalogica

There are plenty of skincare brands out there that have a gimmick, manufacture hype, or rely on heavy marketing to get their products in the public eye, but Dermalogica doesn’t have to. For over 25 years, Dermalogica has been a favourite of beauty editors and experts the world over, because of it’s no-nonsense get the job done approach to skincare.


The brand was started by Jane D Wurwood, a UK trained skin therapist who came to the US and was shocked by the lack of quality training that estheticians there went through to get qualified. She set up a teaching institute to help change that, and then, seeing a gap in the market for the types of products that embraced her values and beliefs of what it took to have great skin, set about developing a product line of her own; And so, Dermalogica was born.

What made the brand different was that Wurwood ensured that all products were irritant free, and stayed away from many of the commonly used ingredients that were known to cause breakouts. When people started using her products, and getting real results, word of mouth and professional recommendations helped the brand grow and grow.

From humble beginnings, Dermalogica has become one of the world’s biggest beauty brands. They have a huge catalogue of products that help address every issue that you might have with your skin. Quite simply, Dermalogica products do what they are supposed to do, which is why celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Hilary Swank publicly profess their love for the brand.

CoverGirl Smoothers SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer Review

CoverGirl Smoothers is a tinted moisturizer that hydrates the skin while giving it a soft glow. It contains sunscreen to protect the skin from sun damage. It goes on smooth and looks great on most skin tones.

Cover Girl Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer Review

Sunscreen is important to prevent sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. CoverGirl Smoothers contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which are barrier sunscreens. Its SPF 15 formula provides enough coverage to protect your skin from sun exposure for short periods of time in the sun such as going to the store or to work.

It is lightweight, so it won’t cake or crease on the skin. It provides a sheer coverage while evening out skin tone for glowing skin. The gel formula helps it glide across the skin for a fresh look. Since it doesn’t contain oil, it is great for all skin types. It’s light enough for oily or combination skin, but sensitive enough to hydrate even dry skin. The zinc oxide helps soothe and protect sensitive skin without irritating blemishes.

The CoverGirl tinted moisturizer comes in three formulas: fair to light, light to medium and medium to dark. Select the right shade for your skin tone. The lightweight formula blends in with your skin tone without looking fake. It gives you an even tone without streaks or dark spots.

Since it is a moisturizer and bronzer in one, there is just one product to apply to your face in the morning. Even if you don’t have time to do all of your makeup, you can get a healthy looking glow with just this product. It evens out skin tone and helps conceal minor blemishes. If you have very dark spots or circles under your eyes, you may need a separate concealer, but for most minor complexion issues, this tinted moisturizer will even your skin tone and reduce the appearance of blemishes.

My skin gets very dry in the winter, so I use a separate moisturizer under this product. I continue to use Smoothers because I like the look and how it evens my skin tone. In the summer, I find that I can skip the separate moisturizer and just use this product.

It’s important that you don’t have any paracetamol or aspirin, as this can lead to complications further along the line.
