Dermalogica's Calm Water Gel is a weightless water-gel moisturizer that hydrates dry, sensitive skin. Refreshing gel formula transforms into a skin-quenching fluid upon application, forming a weightless barrier against environmental assault. Dual hyaluronic acid technology works in different skin surface layers to increase and lock in moisture. Apple fruit extract and glycerin hydrate and soften while defending skin against dryness. Cactus pear extract helps soothe sensitivity and imparts water-binding properties to help support healthy moisture balance.

Comments about Dermalogica Calm Water Gel:

Another reviewer who got this product for free! I have really red skin - more splotches than anything. It has been a few days but already I can tell my skin isn't as red when I take my make-up off. Maybe this is what I need!

    Comments about Dermalogica Calm Water Gel:

    This product is a moisturizer that I did not know until I read the back of the bottle. It comes out nice and fluffy, has a very light feel and is a little off white in color. The scent is very light and clean and leaves my face feeling very soft and hydrated. My pro tip is that you can mix it with the barrier defense booster before application and the only downfall is that it does leave a little bit of a sticky residue but it's not too bothersome. This is also a free product that I received for testing.

              loved the coolness and smell of the product! I was at first skeptical how a gel would moisturize my skin.. but to my surprise it did! My skin felt instantly hydrated and fresh. It went on smoothly and seemed to absorb into my skin almost immediately. After a couple of hours my skin still felt moisturized and hydrated! I even let my mom test it out who was equally impressed! I apply this right after I cleanse my skin. I received this product free for testing.

                  I love how well this hydrates my skin, and calms it after sun exposure. I use it day and night. Love how a little between the palm and rubbing it together activates it, then pat it on. Its great to apply after taking makeup off, any hard rubbing on the skin, will immidietly heal when I apply this calm water gel. It helps sooth my skin pre/post laser hair removal treatment, 2 days after post treament then I apply it for help in helaing my skin. I recieved this product for free for my honest review.

                    • Q:

                      Hi I recently purchased calm water gel for my dry skin that is prone to acne. Whenever I put it on my face it sometimes gets tight during the day. Should I add the barrier defense booster along with it? I'm wondering if it's still too light of a moisturizer for my skin. Also do I rub it in or just pat it on my face?

                        It depends on your skin, Barrier Defense Booster is an oil based serum for normal to dry skin. You can layer these products or use one or the other. Calm Water Gel is feather light and good for normal to dry skin.

                    • Q:

                      Hi. I have recently developed sensitive/blotchy skin as a result of over exfoliation/over processed skin. Therefore my normal skin has become extremely oily due to dehydration and a compromised barrier. I'm also slightly acne prone. I've been using the special cleansing gel, multi active toner and active moist in hopes my skin can heal over time but something is still causing irritation/redness on my cheeks. Would calm water gel be a good swap out for active moist? What's the difference in hydration between the two? Or should I be using barrier repair at night as my moisturizer?
