Gentle Soothing Booster contains some good anti-irritants and soothing plant extracts but to really be an effective booster for sensitive skin, it should also contain skin-repairing ingredients such as fatty acids, cholesterol, ceramides, and glycerin to help repair and replenish skin’s surface. The raspberry, matricaria, and honey extracts are soothing, but this specialty product isn’t as gentle nor as soothing as it seems.

Brand Overview

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.
