Years ago, one of my good friends turned me on to Dermalogica and their brilliant range of products. At first, I hesitated at their prices (you are looking to spend, on average, about NZD$80.00 per product), but after giving in one day and buying a skin regime I was instantly hooked.

Now, Dermalogica is an American brand that is sold around the world including in some of the best beauty salons and skin clinics. The main focus of all of their lines is getting your skin to be at it’s healthiest, whether that means clearing up adult acne or reducing dry skin. After 25 years of success, and with a lot of scientific proof to back their claims, it stands to reason why they are so popular.

There is one particular product that I fell hard for – the Dermal Clay Cleanser (NZD: $74.00 for a 250ml bottle). Made from water soluble kaolin and green clays, this cooling product feels amazing on and leaves your skin fresh, refined and supple. I use it a couple of times a week when I’m in the shower, and find that if I forget to use it my skin actually looks dull. Using it is luxurious, as the cool menthol feels glorious when you have had a long day/hard night. Leaving it on for five minutes gives you the added benefit of a masque, for those days when your skin has just packed it in.

I would recommend this for anyone with oily or combination skin, and though it isn’t cheap, it lasts for months on end. You only need a small dollop per application, and I find it works well with other brands of skin-care.
