I loved the texture of this product, very soothing and calming on my sin

Most Helpful Criticism

It’s okay


It’s an okay product, good for sensitive skin or skin with redness.
  1. Not convinced

    Sarah C

    As a long term dermalogica devotee I purchased due to extremely dry skin with rosacea and redness, I don't think it does much if I'm honest, its a bit like splashing your face with water before you add moisturiser. Using up the tube and layering it with more moisturising products. On the plus side it doesn't tingle or sting or flare anything up.
  2. Nice and calming


    Interesting texture which is cooling and melts into the skin. Very soothing. Not sure it would be enough for someone who has dry skin as it’s very lightweight, but it was enough for me.
  3. Soothing


    I loved the texture of this product, very soothing and calming on my sin
  4. Glowing skin


    I purchased this moisturizer from a recommendation. I have combo skin and adult acne and have always struggled to find a moisturizer that worked well. I have been using this for a few weeks and I love it :) It feels light, soothing, hydrating, and gives a nice glow. It does have a light lavender fragrance however it's not too overpowering.
  5. It’s okay


    It’s an okay product, good for sensitive skin or skin with redness.
  6. Does not disappoint!


    As like all of the dermalogica ultra calming products this gel is another winner. It’s hydrating and light on the skin and has done wonders for my dry and red skin.
  7. Great!


    Tried this after receiving a sample. Loved the texture and although it had a strong smell, it didn’t irritate my skin.
    This will be my go to summer moisturiser as it’s so nice and light
  8. Great for problematic skin


    I love using this around my nose & dry areas to soothe and heal them. My husband uses it all over when he has been working in a hot or dusty environmental. Good for soothing and protecting. Consistency is lovely and light
  9. Calming


    This gel has an interesting texture but is calming, lightweight and non irritating. I didn't find it all that moisturising but it goes well under my normal moisturiser and is great for red irritated skin.
  10. Soothing!


    I use this after getting a dermalogica pro power peel, it is so hydrating and calming. Absolutely love it.
  11. Amazing to use post peel


    I recently had a chemical peel and used this for the week post peel. It kept my skin hydrated without irritating it, highly recommend it post procedure.
  12. Lovely smelling and great on skin


    First of all this smells amazing and you don’t need much so don’t let the small bottle for the price fool you.
    It goes on like a gel and leaves your face feeling Very hydrated.
    The only downside for me is that it left my face feeling too sticky for a while so wouldn’t use make up afterwards. I use this once I have taken my make up off to soothe tired skin and it’s great.
  13. Hydration Boost!


    I'm been dearchung for best products and acids to layer with Salicylic Acid and bumped into some list which includes Dermalogica.

    I'm a Proactive Skin user, has been for a year. Excessive use of Salycylic can dry out and make your skin thinner. Dermalogica is perfect combo, keeping my skin ultra hydrated and calm the redness.

    I highly recommend this product!
  14. Feels a bit siliconey


    This product feels weird, like a silicone, but it’s quite hydrating and helps with my redness.
  15. Great moisturiser!

    Elle Maze

    The texture is very different to any other moisturiser I have used, and when I first used it, didn't think I was getting enough out of it, however, quickly got used to it when I noticed glowy, even toned skin. Calms redness and hydrates really well!
  16. Perfect Flight Friend


    OK so I'm devastated that this gel seems to be inflaming my Rosacea on my cheeks and around my lips (I think it's the fruit acid). I know go figure. BUT I have discovered it's an awesome under eye problem solver. I tried this instead of my heavier creme for hydrating under my eyes. Perfect. And doesn't inflame the rosacea on my cheeks. I can't wait till I can fly again and use it for the long haul...

  17. light and soothing


    Received a sample in a recent order and really like the consistency of the product. Very light and absorbs quickly. sits well under my sunscreen and make up, no piling. Very soothing on my acne prone skin and has not caused any break outs. I am definitely considering buying a full size!
  18. One of the best!


    this is one of my absolute favourite moisturisers! It is so beautiful and lightweight. Perfect for acne prone skin and oily skin.
  19. A really great hydrator for sensitive prone skin


    I've used this as my hydrator in the mornings for a while now and it is great under make up and as a last step in my morning routine. It is cooling, doesn't clog my skin up and my skinfeels like it is able to breathe. However i don't find this hydrating enough to use in the evenings.
  20. Super calming


    My skin drinks this up like a glass of water, so soothing and helps calm down redness.
  21. Love


    Cleans well and my face feels fresh and soft afterwards
  22. A staple


    I’ve received a small 10ml sample of the gel as part of an Adore Beauty Goodie Bag. I love this gel, it always helps me when the skin (especially around my eyes, I’m yet to find a good eye product) gets too dry. I always try and have a tube at hand. Unfortunately it seems like it’s got more expensive lately.
  23. Soft and Gentle


    I love the lightweight texture of this gel.
    It glides on smoothly and is absorbed rapidly into the skin.
    You immediately feel the soothing and calming effect that
    it has on the skin.
    I have used this product mainly on the cheeks and drier areas of my face.
    I apply it in the evening after cleansing and toning and use it after the
    same process in the morning and ...

  24. very gentle


    light, refreshing and gentle :)
  25. Love it for my sensitive skin


    Love using this at night - I have quite red and combination skin and this soothes and moisturises without clogging my skin. Fees really smooth and hydrated in the mornings and also allows me to incorporate retinol without the harsh side effects
  26. Soothing


    I purchased this after loving a sample I received from Adore.
    It applies as a gel and transforms into a liquid on your skin, I live the feel of this in my face.
    My go to in summer to soothe my skin after days spent in the sun and at the beach.
    I don’t find this hydrating enough to use alone so I always apply a moisturiser on top.
  27. My favourite moisturiser!


    I have a really hard time finding moisturisers I love, I'm dry but extremely reactive and breakout as a result.

    Combined with the Ultracalming cleanser this has been a game changer. Light enough not to break me out, but powerful enough to calm my redness and provide enough moisture for the Summer months.
    It will have to be combined with something thicker for the Winter flakiness...

  28. Skins best friend


    I struggle with rosacea and this helps my skin feel hydrated and velvety. It also significantly reduces redness and because its so lightweight, doesn't cause me to break out.
  29. beautiful texture


    feels very lightweight and sinks into your skin with ease
  30. Light moisturiser


    This looks like a translucent balm so I was cautious in applying this but it's actually a really light gel cream.
    It sinks in immediately and disappears into the skin.
    It's perfect to use day and night amd layers well under makeup.
    The only thing I don't like is the scent. Or the lack of. I usually like non fragranced products but this smells like sorbelene. Really strong chemica...

  31. Absolutely love it


    Amazing product, light weight in texture and a little goes a long way. I have combination skin and this moisturiser doesn't feel greasy or waxy and provides the perfect amount of hydration for my skin. Love it.
  32. Light but hydrating


    This gives extreme comfort to dehydrated skin! Soaks into the skin and leaves it super glowy.
  33. Nice and light


    I received this as part of a goodie bag and have fallen in love with it. I have oily skin and find this to feel nice and light while also being super hydrating. It also feels lovely and cool on my skin. For me, it's a perfect day cream to wear under my sunscreen. I will purchase again.
  34. Hello heavenly calmness


    This gel is everything it says it is. It moisturises very well and feels like it holds moisture in the skin for most of the day. It soaked in very fast. I really liked it and will be purchasing a full size after trying this as a sample.
  35. like a water mask


    this hydrates my skin instantly and doesn't irritate it one bit :)
  36. very lightweight


    so light and yet very hydrating
  37. Love this product


    Love this product goes on smooth and skin is soft once done and so light weight
  38. Leaves my skin quite tingly and irritated


    This product's texture feels beautiful, however every time I apply it it initially makes my skin feel very tingly and slightly irritated.. It does eventually calm down but I wouldn't purchase again as the moisture delivered just isn't enough for my type of skin.
  39. Moisture Heaven


    Adore Beauty sent me a sample of this and my love for dermalogica products continues as this one is a beauty. It is so soothing, hydrating and sinks into your sink quickly. I really like this moisturiser however it's far too expensive for a basic moisturiser
  40. Moisture plus!


    I used this as a sample after a day in the sun, I was a little sunburnt and also wind burnt, feeling rather dry and dehydrated. This was instant relief and have been using it ever since. It makes my skin bounce back and is so so soft!
    Will be stocking up on this one!
  41. Rehydrates skin


    I received a deluxe sample of this as a GWP and when my dehydrated skin is feeling extra tight I find this soothes and rehydrates my skin beautifully. Absorbs well too!
  42. calms the skin down


    i use it 2,3 times a week to calm my skin and i have noticed that my skin gets less red than before. it is great for oily skin too
  43. Really like this


    This gel is everything it says it is. It moisturises very well and feels like it holds moisture in the skin for most of the day. It soaked in very fast. I really liked it and will be purchasing a full size after trying this as a sample.
  44. Not a fan


    I didn’t like the smell of the product and the gel texture didn’t sink into my skin very well. Certainly calming however, so it lives up to its promises.
  45. awesome


    feels so hydrating and nourishing on my skin
  46. Calms the skin


    I always use the Calm water gel after having the pro power peel from Dermalogica. A non - sticky formula, this gel helps with healing sensitive skin and works well in Summer. Best part is that it doesn't make your skin oily.
  47. Love it


    My skin feels so moisturised from this- it soaks up. But it is expensive. Will be looking for more affordable alternatives.
  48. Very cool texture


    Using in conjunction with other ultra calming products, live this product line from dermalogica is great for my sensitive rosacea prone skin. The texture of this is very cool
  49. too light


    It is not hydrating enough to quench my dry sensitive skin. I found my skin still feel tight after using this water gel.
  50. Great for my sensitive skin


    I received this as a sample & I'm loving it. It feels really light,refreshing and very hydrating. Great for my sensitive skin.
  51. good product


    Got a sample of this. It is a good product to refresh sensitive skin.
  52. soothing


    i found this super soothing and calming for my skin. i have oily skin and found this didnt over congest my skin during the day
  53. good product, very gentle


    very gentle and hydrating, would repurchase this one
  54. calming


    easy to use and so gentle on the skin. Must have!
  55. Love it ! No regrets !


    This is so amazing under moisturiser.
    It’s not oily and it’s not one of those essences that builds up a creamy layer after layer and makes your skin feel thick.
    It’s so light a soft and it only enhances your moisturiser
  56. Thirst quenching


    I got 2 samples from Adore recently. I like to keep samples and then take them on holidays to try out something different. As someone with problem skin (rosacea) I was a little nervous because even the most inoffensive product can and does offend. Well I'm sold I will buy this now because it's the best thing I've used in summer ever. My skin loves it. It made it feel plump with no oily after effec...

  57. Light


    I love how light this is on my skin! It feels almost refreshing in hot weather. Doesn't do anything for mattifying though, just a light hydration layer. Received as a sample
  58. Incredibly hydrating


    Love this so much! So hydrating and plumping. Feels like your giving your skin a huge drink of water!
  59. Hydrated


    Love using this before bed, very luxurious!
  60. Lightweight and soothing


    This gel cream is nice and soothing. It is great that it absorbs straight in to your skin without leaving any residue.
  61. Cool like on a hot summers day


    The most calming and softening moisturiser I have ever used. This is a literal holy grail and hydrates my skin immensely, more than I ever thought
  62. Lightweight & Calming


    This is one of the best products from dermalogica. It’s super calming and moisturising. Great to use as a night moisturiser just before bed. Would definitely recommend to those who have sensitive skin.
  63. Great summer time moisturiser


    I really enjoyed using the gel in warmer months as it soothed my sensitive skin and felt light and cooling. However does not achieve the same feel in winter and have had to try another brand of more cream based moisturiser.
  64. must have


    i suffered from normal and acne prone skin with blackheads until i used dermalogica, this brand imparticular saved my skin, ive always like water based moisturises but found the irrtate my skin this however, was very calming, only need a small amount and cleared my skin after a few weeks, highly reccommend
  65. An item I won’t go without


    I am obsessed with this product and use it at least once a day. I’ve only recently started using the Ultra Calming range as I found the other Dermalogica products too harsh for my skin. I was recommended this by a beautician due to my sensitive skin.
    A little expensive for the size of the bottle but it’s worth it. Whilst pregnant I got eczema on my eye lids and this was the only thing that ...

  66. Feels really heavy


    I used this a few times and I did not enjoy the texture of it. It feels very heavy with silicones and honestly I felt that this took a while to sink in. For that reason I wouldn’t really recommend it. It does an okay job but it’s not great.
  67. soothing


    This soothes my redness in the morning and feels very light weight only skin as well, It has a nice soothing and cooling effect when I apply it and makes me feel awake in the morning!
  68. Great under your moisturiser


    Got recommended it by a good friend who helped get samples from dermalogica and it’s so light but makes your skin feel so feathery smooth. Especially great under a moisturiser.
  69. Fantastic


    Expensive but for very sensitive skin that can lean dry or combo or oily depending on the day it's perfect and a life-saver.
  70. very runny texture


    it is very calming and gives just the right amount of hydration to the skin. the formula is quite runny so you have to work with it pretty quickly because it drips. at first you feel like it is sitting on the skin but it is actually doing its work. and it does calms down the redness on my skin.
  71. Super calming


    Highly recommended for skin that is highly sensitive and reactive. This product will smooth the skins surface and calm redness right down whilst hydrating the skin.
  72. So Silky!


    I received a sample of this and it is absolutely amazing.
    Very moisturising, it feels like silk!
  73. Amazing, light weight and nourishing!


    I can’t say enough good things about this product. I have sensitive combination skin. Since I have been using this cream I haven’t had any dry skin flair ups, which I used to get around my chin and my skin would literally flake and fall off. It was horrible.

    This product is great to use morning and night. It’s so soothing and doesn’t make your skin feel tight or oily. It’s beautiful....

  74. Not a sound beauty investment


    Doesn’t help with dry skin, limited in hydration
  75. Great


    I use this in the morning and at night, and it just calms my skin. I have rosacea and super dry sensitive skin and this feels like I am putting water on my face. Its moisturizing and leaves my face so smooth. I have also had bad inflamations due to my rosacea and this has helped calm my face down. A little goes a looong way I love it!
  76. So lightweight and hydrating


    This moisturiser is my favourite, it feels so light and silky and really makes my skin feel quenched! Plus it absorbs into the skin really quick so is lovely under makeup and doesn't leave any kind of oily residue. Definitely recommend.
  77. Great


    I'm 33 with acne-prone dehydrated skin, and I have been using a sample of this water gel for the last 3 days. I find that it feels very light and cooling on my skin, but because it is so light, it feels insufficient for my skin and I have to apply a double layer of it on. Prefer the skin smoothing cream but I can see this should feel good in summer due to the "cooling" effect.
  78. Calming and soothing


    This product is perfect for sensitive skin when all you want is a little bit of moisture and heat/redness relief. A great everyday moisturiser as it’s not too heavy
  79. Made no difference to the redness of my skin. Also used the barrier defence booster totally no change in my skin colour.


    Totally useless product.
  80. Okay


    It feels fantastic when applied, but unfortunately after about half an hour my skin is very oily. The oil control cream is better suited for me. It has a nice lavender smell though
  81. Very refreshing!


    I received a sample of this in a recent order. When applied to my combo/oily skin, it sinks in very quickly and leaves the skin feeling silky and soft. It doesn't turn me into a grease ball by the end of the day, so would be great for a daytime moisturiser for combo or oily skinned people, but not so much if your skin is dry. I really enjoyed this product!
  82. Sensitive relief


    I have sensitive skin that reacts to any treatment cream I put on my face. I am 59 and have combination skin. My skin soaks up this gel formula like a sponge. Dryness has been a real issue and I can see the difference in my skin's appearance. Smoother, less old-looking. And no reaction. Love it.
  83. Amazing for sensitive & acne prone skin


    This product has become a lifesaver for my skin. I have been suffering from painful cystic acne, and the calm water gel is my go-to to help reduce inflammation in my skin, and keep it hydrated without being heavy and clogging. I also lent it to my sister who was suffering from dermatitis on her chin and around her nose, and she also credits this product for relieving the redness and dry patches.
  84. Great Product


    Very calming & Refreshing. A good purchase for sensitive skin
  85. Amazing


    I have only been using the Calm Water Gel for a week now and I have noticed such an incredible difference in my skin sensitivity. Not only would I get inflamed, red and hot from having even a cool shower, but I would find my skin would dry out and sting everyday. Since using this water-based moisturiser, I have found my skin is calm and hardly ever irritated. I feel confident now to wear no makeup...

  86. Great moisturiser before makeup!


    I put this on just before I apply my makeup and it soothes and hydrates my skin (I have acne and oily skin). Feels really nice on the skin and smells amazing!
  87. Not sure


    It's refreshing when you apply but not sure what else it does
  88. So good for inflamed skin


    This moisturiser is so good to create a protective barrier for sensitive and inflammed skin
  89. Dermalogica is my hero


    I love this ultracalming calm water gel! I have rosacea and was only just accepting some products as not making my skin worse, however since using Dermalogica my skin has actually improved greatly. This gel always goes on my skin so nicely and feels so cool and hydrating. I really love it and can't recommend it enough.
  90. Amazing for sensitive and stressed skin


    Highly recommended for skin that is highly sensitive and reactive. This product will smooth the skins surface and calm redness right down whilst hydrating the skin.
  91. Refreshing


    I got this as a sample and as soon as I tried it, I knew I wanted to add it to my skincare routine. It goes on light, and hydrates very well. A little goes a long way, and 1 tube usually lasts me 6 months of daily use. I have sensitive skin and this does not aggravate it at all, instead it makes me feel refreshed.
  92. Post laser greatness

    Damn Daisy

    I have horribly sensitive pale skin which dries out terribly post laser treatments.

    This is so far the most effective way to calm my skin down after YAG or IPL etc.

    Its like an oily jelly water which smells like lavender. Normally the lavender scent would aggrevate me and remind me of my Grandma (who was awful btw).. but I can handle the bad Grandma flash backs because i...

  93. Finally hydration!


    Omg I’m so stoked with this gel - it’s super hydrating and calming for my sensitized skin. A little goes a long way too as I only have to use a pea size. The smell is quite clinical but it does the job so I really don’t mind.
  94. lovely


    This product is just too lovely - soothing and comforting, and enough moisture for my skin. Since moving to the Blue Mountains, my formerly well behaved skin has become drier, with broken veins in my cheeks. Ultra Calming Calm Water Gel does what it claims.
  95. On the fence


    I so wanted to love this - the name alone is awesome, and it is chock full of aloe, which I also love - but the lavender essential oil ended up irritating my skin. I don't know why I keep persisting with trying Dermalogica products when they use so many essential oils in everything, but I keep hearing good things about the brand, so keep trying their stuff!
  96. Obssesed!


    I have always had oily/acne prone skin and find it very hard to find a good moisturizer that doesn't leave me feeling like an oily mess shortly after application. That was until I found this product! After cleansing at night I apply this straight away and the gel formula cools my red skin immediately without leaving a heavy oily feeling on my face! I will forever be restocking this once I run out!...

  97. Love it


    The gel is so cooling and refreshing on my skin. I have rosacea on one cheek and it would get very hot in that one particular area, so applying this is such a relief when my skin is raging.
    I have a 10ml bottle but as soon as I run out, I am adding the big one to my cart.
  98. Not the most hydrating


    This is a great product because it doesnt irritate the skin and helps it to cool down (especially if you keep it in the fridge) but its not the most hydrating product out there which isnt the best if you have super dry skin like I do
  99. Cool and calming


    I trialed the Dermalogica UltraCalming Calm Water Gel on recommendation from my beautician as I have very sensitive skin and struggle with rosacea. The gel was cooling on my skin and relieved redness. I had no problems with any irritation which is always something I worry about. The formulation didn't dry sticky or slow which is a problem I have encountered with gels previously.

  100. Does what it clames


    I got this in a sample and I am going to buy the full size in my next order! As soon as I applied it, it was such a nice cooling calm feeling. When I get the full size I am going to keep it in the fridge because I can just image how much nicer it will feel! I have rosacea on my cheeks and they get very warm or dry as a bone, no in between and this just calms both those issues!
