The 3-step regimen delivers the closest shave possible and your healthiest skin ever.

No one knows healthy skin better than Dermalogica – and we’re about to make your shaving problems history! Customised to meet both skin care and beard growth needs, experience your healthiest skin ever with the simple, 3-step regimen from Dermalogica Shave. As skin care professionals, we know shaving impacts skin health: ingrown hairs, irritation and redness are just some of the visible signs of trauma your skin undergoes when you take a razor to it. Simply put, shaving is a form of mechanical exfoliation. Shaving triggers a high level of visible irritation and can serve as a form of over-exfoliation, as well as lead to a compromised lipid barrier. When the skin’s lipid barrier is compromised, there is an increase in moisture loss, which leads to dry, scaly, cracked skin and a sensitised skin condition.

how it works

The Dermalogica Shave system offers a complete regimen to guarantee not only the closest shave possible, but also your healthiest skin ever.

    I buy this for my partner about once a year, he works outside in all weather conditions and this moisturiser with the added sunscreen is perfect for him.

    Best moisturiser I have used. Goes on easily, and dries quickly as not to leave a greasy feeling, effective as light sunblock, and helped soothe my skin after shaving. Nice smell too!

Hi, I have been prescribed Skin Smoothing Cream and was interested in using this due to the SPF and ingredients that prevent blemishes. I was just curious to as to what ingredients in this formula keep acne away? I have sensitive skin.. would you recommend this?

Written by Alex on 14/07/2015
Hi Alex, thanks for getting in touch.
The Daily Defense Block SPF15 is very lightweight and absorbs into the skin really quickly. It has a mattifying effect on the skin. The Daily Defense Block SPF15 contains a Prickly Pear (cactus extract) which stimulates our own skin exfoliation process – this will help prevent skin congestion. It is a non-acid skin smoothing ingredient. By reducing congestion you also reduce breakouts.
This product should be fine for sensitive skin – it also contains wheat germ extract and vitamin and B5 so is very soothing. I’m just not sure that the weight of it is going to be quite right as you have been prescribed Skin Smoothing Cream. Daily Defense Block SPF15 is a lighter weight cream than Skin Smoothing Cream. You could look at using the Solar Defence Booster SPF50 mixed in with your Skin Smoothing Cream each day for an SPF 30 as an alternative .Most Dermalogica skin centres should be able to provide you with a sample of products so this could be a good starting point.
