  • Included Sapphire-bound Biomimetic Peptides to help with both firmness and smoothness.

  • Moroccan rockrose extract and Madagascar green coffee bean decrease the appearance of fine lines while Amazonian Camu Camu increases luminosity.

3. Dermalogica Smart Response Serum.

Fast facts:

  • Gallic acid reduces redness on the skin and soothes irritation. 

  • Hydrolized wheat flour brightens and targets dark spots.

  • Oligosaccharides support skin barrier function and optimise hydration.

  • An ingredient called mannose-6 phospate is there to firm and smooth.

  • It’s “smartness” adapts to your skin changes.

How to use the Dermalogica Smart Response Serum:

n the morning and/or evening, take 2-3 pumps onto freshly cleansed skin, smoothing over your face and neck. Allow to absorb for one minute, then follow with your regular hydration routine, including moisturisers, and SPF if using during the day.

What you need to know:

It smooths, it firms, it brightens, it hydrates  it calms — there is nothing this serum can’t do!

It “translates” what your skin needs most by reading its signals and then addressing exactly what’s needed.



4. Dermalogica Circular Hydration Serum.

Dermalogica Circular Hydration Serum

Best for: Skin that needs a long, cool drink (dry, dehydrated, moisture loss, infrared barrier, winter vibes).

Fast facts:

  • Uses a three-stage (ahem, “circular” approach) to stimulate hydration, lock it in and protect the skin barrier.

  • Naturally, there’s hyaluronic acid there, a master humectant that draws water in — and locks it in. 

  • Another master humectant, polyglutamic acid (from fermented soybeans) in two molecular weights helps to hold and replenish hydration reserves. 

  • Algae extract-infused moisturising matrix stimulates ceramide production and strengthens the skin barrier.

  • To calm and balance there’s avena extract (oat) lactobacillus ferment.

  • Isn’t tacky like other hydrating serums and has a beautiful, dewy finish.

How to use the Dermalogica Circular Hydration Serum:

Suitable for use once or twice daily.

Smooth a small amount over cleansed face and neck, after toning and before moisturising.

What you need to know: 

There are many hydrating serums, but there is only one circular hydration serum.

It considers the cycle of hydration in the skin, addresses it on every level and at every stage and leaves skin plump, smooth and dewy. It’s the winter antidote.


5. Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum.

Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum

Best for: All the things! But specifically, all the fun stuff associated with ageing: lines, dullness, wrinkles, uneven texture, loss of firmness, enlarged pores.

Fast facts:

  • Contains a high-dose 3.5% Retinoid complex: translation: three retinoids working together for a continuous, even release of actives. 

  • This is buffered by soothing and hydrating squalane that soothes and hydrates. 

  • Also representing in Beta Glucan which is a calming humectant (and again, helps the retinoid to just…chill) 

  • As with all retinol, be gentle. Start with every third day, after two weeks increase to every other day IF your skin is tolerating it. Eventually you’ll build up to nightly use, but too fast too soon can lead to flaking and dryness.

How to use the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum:

After cleansing, apply a thin layer over face. Keep out of eyes. Use nightly. If dryness or redness occurs, reduce frequency. Wear an SPF during the day.

What you need to know:

Retinol is the gold-standard ingredient for anything and everything anti-ageing.

I’ve tried a lot of retinoids —  so believe me when I say they are not created equal.

This, THIS is a very excellent retinol that does everything it promises.
