Work pressure, stress, and pollution take a toll on the skin. The face either gets dark patches or there are rashes and eruptions. Dust and fatigue make the skin sag and fine lines develop. It is impossible to hide the exhausted skin with a makeup. Try not to go through the trouble of putting on layers and layers of foundation, but focus on conditioning your skin. Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque is easy to use. The effect is also quickly reflected on the skin. However, price is a major concern. Check out if this skin-toning solution is really your cup of tea.


Available in 2.5 oz short, opaque, and flexible tube, the hydrating solution is kept away from air contamination and direct sunrays. The user-friendly lid pops open and allows the user to squeeze out a small amount of the product. The lid is tapped and closed. It is locked and does not leak when carried in handbags. This product is handy for office-goers who want to freshen up in just few minutes before doing the next chore.

The Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque is basically a light, transparent gel. After applying, it gives you a cool and calming feeling. The idea is to slowly massage the gel into skin, avoiding eye area. When first applied, the gel looks like a watery substance that is light and cooling. Left alone for 15 minutes or so, the gel gets absorbed in the skin. The skin becomes soft and supple and tiredness and fine lines disappear as well. After 15 minutes, you need to wash it off with water. In short, your skin will glow after using this mask.

There is mild herbal sweet smell from the gel. In fact, some users feel it smells like cucumber. Nonetheless, the aroma is refreshing and mild. It does not meddle with the fragrance of the perfume. The subtle aroma gives a clean feeling.


The gel of the Hydrating Masque can be conveniently applied and easily absorbed. There is no shine or oily feel. The solution gets absorbed and goes deep into the epithelial cells of the skin. It works on the skin’s hydrating properties – such as hyaluronic acid. The skin softens and looks buoyant. The calming elements in the gel ensures that the skin does not lose its latent moisture. It helps to trap the moisture released by hyaluronic acid.

There are anti-oxidant vitamins and anti-aging constituents which help to develop skin moisture. Apart from hydrated the skin and making it soft, the elements in the gel, such as Vitamins A, C and E remove radicals that promote aging. They also repair the cells from within. The sagging effect and fine lines disappear no sooner the radicals are removed through anti-oxidants.

The gel also has a unique property, which helps to keep the skin healthy and nourished. The lycopene-savvy tomato seeds have special lipids which help to protect the skin from getting parched and under-nourished by pollutions in the air. It has B5, which helps to nourish the skin with energy so that it can promote cell regeneration and replicate cells quickly.

The hydrating gel has extracts of hops, cucumber, arnica, and bitter orange. These quell the inflammation of the cells that cause puffiness in the face. The herbal extracts also have a cooling effect on the skin.
