redness relief essence

Lightweight like a toner but concentrated like a serum, the refreshing formula visibly reduces redness and helps reduce sensitivity by strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier. Redness Relief Essence is part of the UltraCalming™ line and works synergistically to relieve, restore and hydrate sensitive skin against redness, discomfort and dehydration.
Although there is no standard for establishing a gluten-free designation for topical skin care products, independent laboratory testing confirms that this formula surpasses the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) ingestible standards and can therefore be considered gluten-free.

ultracalming™

Treat the multiple triggers behind inflammation for lasting relief from sensitivity flare-ups.

Itching, burning, stinging and redness are the obvious signs of sensitive skin. The triggers behind these sensations are less clear: genetics, hormones, stress, chemical assaults, foods and even aggressive skin treatments can intensify skin’s highly reactive state. The common thread behind irritation, flushing and stinging is inflammation. When paired with the loss of skin’s protective barrier, skin health is compromised and becomes highly reactive.

how it works

UltraCalming™ contains UltraCalming™ Complex, our exclusive complex clinically proven to control neurogenic and immunogenic inflammatory pathways that lead to skin sensitivity.

Bad burning sensation

1

I was so excited to try this product. However, as soon as I used it I felt a burning sensation which persisted for almost two days. If you have truly sensitive skin use with caution.

Oily and makes all products peel off

1

Usually all the Dermalogica products I use are fantastic. But this product is just not good. It peels if used solo and makes my Dermalogica moisturizer peel if it is used underneath as directed. It has not been that calming and I have tried using it multiple times on multiple occasions. It's also sticky, so using it before bed makes my face stick to the pillow. The Ultracalming Mist was so much better and this product is not what I'm used to from Dermalogica.

I love this product. I was recommended this product by the spa that I go to and it works wonders. I did not even realize my skin was red until I used this problem and it went away. It smells and feels SO GOOD.

not impressed

i gave this a try since the ulra calming mist is being discontinued: not impressed :( it leaves a film on my skin which reduces the effects of the calm gel moisturizer that i apply afterwards not a pleasant fragrance does not reduce redness prefer spray vs serum

Made My Face Breakout

1

I tried the Redness Relief Essence as a replacement to the Ultra Calming Mist, which was a huge mistake. I have rosacea and with an hour my face was a lot redder and I had broken out on a rash. I wish The Ultra Calming Mist would cone back.

It's LOVE!

This Redness Relief Essence is AMAZING! I suffer with areas of my face that appear more pink/rosie than others. I applied this as soon as I received it an immediately noticed a difference. Having used it again and again since, I have continued to notice a more balanced and neutral colour to my skin, and my skin feels so so hydradrated! This before Prisma, and after PreCleasnce, and Special Cleansing, is the perfect combination!

Better products in the Ultra calming line than this

2

After speaking with a dermalogica sales associate at Ulta, I decided to buy this in place of the Ultra calming serum concentrate. She described it as thinner but with similar capabilities. It is also about $20 cheaper and twice the size as the serum concentrate. However, I would definitely disagree that this is an equal product. It doesn't provide much moisture and it has minimal affects on redness. Basically - it's not as potent as the serum, which makes sense. I'm not sure what purpose it really serves in a regimen. I prefer the toner mist followed up by the ultracalming serum concentrate and then the active moisturizer. I have PCOS with very oily skin but I use strong acne serums so I need good quality moisturizers as well as products that won't further irritate my skin. The above regimen is working well for me.

YIKES. big mistake.

1

I'm a long time Dermalogica user and, until now, a fan of the ultracalming line. But this product is gritty (customer service, don't reply and tell me to shake it more. it has been shaken more than James Bond's martini), and dries out my skin. Don't waste you money. The ultracalming mist, if it is ever back in stock, is a better product.

Don't buy!

2

This is when I beg you to bring back the ultra calming face mist that actually worked. Everyday it felt so good to spray that on my face and have the redness disappear and be moisturize. If you have sensitive skin do not buy this product. It drys out your already red sensitive face even if you add moisturizer. I really love Dermalogica products and I wish you would not discontinue products that actually work and make a difference to put new ones out there that don't.

Should I use the Redness Relief Essence as a toner substitute, or should I use it after I finish moisturizing? I'm still a bit confused about where to fit this into my routine.

Al

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It is a toner step. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I get dry red patches around my eyes, like on my eyelids. Can I use Redness Relief Essence on my eye area?

Natasha

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Barrier Repair on the eye area. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

If I use the new Redness Relief Essence in place of the discontinued UltraCalming Mist, do I stop using the UltraCalming Serum since you describe the Essence as being like a serum?

Judy

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Redness Relief Essence is a toner step. It is very light weight, but deeply soothes and nourishes the skin with oatmeal, aloe and sage. You can still use a serum with it. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Hi! I just purchased this and it's watery....I expected it to be more like a serum. What should the consistency be like?

Kim

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It is not a serum. It is a toner step. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Is this the direct replacement for the Ultra Calming Mist? Very disappointed it is no longer in stock

ivy

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, Redness Relief Essence is the direct replacement. Redness Relief Essence is a toner step. It is very light weight, but deeply soothes and nourishes the skin with oatmeal, aloe and sage. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Would this replace my moisturizer?

Is this product a replacement for the ultracalming mist? I no longer see the ultracalming mist on the website. Has it been discontinued?

jvt

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, Ultra Calming Mist has been discontinued. This is the replacement product. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Do I apply my moisturisers/serums after applying Redness Relief Esssence

Liz

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes. Use Redness Relief Essence as a toner step and follow with serum and moisturizer. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

After cleansing with special cleansing gel I typically use the multi active toner. I recently purchased the redness relief essence. Would I replace the multi active toner with redness relief essence or just continue to use the multi active toner and then apply the essence before moisturizing?

Kristen

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You would replace Multi Active Toner with Redness Relief Essence. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I have never heard of Redness Relief Essence. Can you tell me more? Where would it fit in my regimen? Thanks

Anne

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It is a new product. It is like your toner step, to soothe and hydrate. Kind Regards, Bernadette
