This Cult Moisturiser Has Been Redeveloped (And It’s Better Than Ever)

Joanna Fleming

Moisturiser is a hotly debated topic. Some have their holy grail formula they never stray from (guilty!), while others jump from product to product desperately trying to find one that’s right for their skin.

There’s a particular moisturiser that’s been a fan favourite since the 80’s, and has earned a cult following thanks to its ultra-hydrating formula – but Dermalogica’s Skin Smoothing Cream has just undergone a face lift, so what’s changed?

Why Has It Been Reformulated?

Significantly higher pollution levels and a change to our lifestyles called for a slight upgrade to this beloved hydrating cream – but don’t worry, the most important parts are still the same.

– The new Skin Smoothing Cream provides 48 hours of continuous hydration

– Patented technology forms an invisible barrier over the skin to prevent moisture loss

– The formula helps to shield the skin’s own protective barrier from impairment

– Boosts moisture levels to reduce visible signs of dehydration like fine lines

– The mid-weight texture & subtle scent are very similar to the original

– Leaves the skin looking & feeling more plump & smooth

The Key Ingredients:

Dermalogica’s new Skin Smoothing Cream contains a blend of Urea, Trehalose, Glycerin & Hyaluronic Acid to attract and hold moisture in the skin for long-lasting hydration and comfort.

Glycerol, a prebiotic, further supports the skin’s microbiome, while Coconut Oil, Borage Seed and Soybean help to improve barrier function.

From the original formula, Grapeseed Extract and Vitamins C and E provide antioxidant protection against damaging free radicals, plus Cucumber, Mallow and Arnica help soothe and hydrate.

Why Is Your Barrier So Important?

A lot of the changes made to the reformulated Skin Smoothing Cream focus on supporting and strengthening the skin’s own defence mechanism.

When your skin’s barrier is impaired, you’re more susceptible to damaging environmental effects, including pollution, irritants and UV damage. All of these factors can lead to accelerated ageing, sensitivities and various other skin concerns.

Skin Smoothing Cream contains several ingredients to not only boost moisture in the skin, but also restore and further protect the skin’s barrier, so your skin can be its healthiest.
