Brand Overview

This after shave contains several intriguing ingredients and could have been a brilliant post-shave option for men, but Dermalogica couldn’t seem to resist including irritants, such as two menthol derivatives along with clover oil and other troublemakers for skin. Any shaving product that is described as “super cooling” is a must to avoid. When skin is shaved and treated with gentle products, it shouldn’t need any cooling.

Jar Packaging: No
Tested on animals: No

Super-cooling treatment balm helps shorten post-shave recovery time. So much more than an after-shave, this multi-functional balm intensely moisturizes while preventing ingrown hairs and bumps. Calming extracts help reduce post-shave discomfort, as a unique ingredient complex controls oily shine. Won't leave skin feeling heavy or shiny.

Dermalogica At-A-Glance

According to company history, Dermalogica products came into being because founder Jane Wurwand could not find a spa-oriented skin-care line that met her criteria. She was dismayed that so many skincare lines aimed at the aesthetics market had products that contained alcohol, artificial colors, fragrance, mineral oil, and lanolin, ingredients he believed had a well-documented history of problems. That's true for fragrance and alcohol (and artificial colors to a lesser extent), but mineral oil and lanolin have no documented history of causing skin problems.

The line is positioned as a no-nonsense, no frills take on skincare, with clinically-inspired packaging that does protect its beneficial ingredients from light and air. Speaking of ingredients, Dermalogica does include a lot of beneficial ones in its skincare, though there are a number of formulas in the line that also make the misstep of including potentially-irritating fragrance ingredients.
