Shake up your routine with Pure-Beauty


Just as we have that favourite dress, go to boots and fail safe jeans, when it comes to beauty, we often tend to stick with what we know.

This October why not step out of your comfort zone and try something new?

At Pure-Beauty we stock an impressive range of products from Dermalogica that work wonders on your skin but don’t break the bank.

With free delivery, discounts, sample sizes and experts on hand to answer any questions, what better time to try something new?

First on the list is the super-exciting, next-generation Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil. This easy to use daily-use treatment oil has been created to help deal with common complaints whilst reinforcing the skins natural protective function. It works on three levels:

  • Phase one strengthens and helps restore the skin’s natural barrier thanks to phytoactives in Camellia and Tamanu oils.
  • Phase two hydrates with the powers of Orchid Flower and Chia Seed Oil both of which smooth dehydration lines and lock in moisture.
  • Phase three shields the skin using Sunflower, Rice Bran and Rosemary extracts to create a natural shield that protects again ageing free radical damage.

We suggest you press six drops of oil into you skin and follow this with your usual Dermalogica moisturiser. Used daily you should start to see a decrease in line visibility and enjoy a more radiant, glowing complexion.

Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque is a unique all-in-one treatment that detoxifies, brightens and invigorates the skin. It is the perfect antidote to dull, sallow, tired complexions and the very first application leads to visible results.

We all tend to remember to cleaner, tone and moisuturire, but how often do we attention to our lips? Not often enough quite possibly. The Dermalogica Renewal Lip Complex is a daily treatment that restores the delicate tissue around the mouth. Suitable for drier and prematurely-ageing skin this rich, easy to use cream minimises contour lines and helps prevent signs of ageing. The product can be applied twice a day and whether it is worn alone or under lipstick, the conditioning powers last for hours.

If you have sensitive skin that is prone to redness, why not give the Dermalogica Gentle Soothing Booster a try? This oil-free product has been created to rescue sensitive skin from redness and help it recover from stress. Every drop is packed with soothing, natural botanicals including Red Raspberry Extract, honey, Calendula, Chamomile and Cornflower which together reduce irritation while restoring natural moisture levels. Win, win.

Whilst the summer sun might have gone, the effects of long days on the beach could be hanging around. Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant has been crated to clear away dead skin and promote cell renewal for a smoother, healthier complexion. All skin types, except sensitive, can benefit from this product, which combines Lactic and Salicylic Acid with Extracts of Lavender, Aloe Vera and Coneflower. Used twice a week on cleansed skin, with car taken around the eyes, you will wonder how you ever survived without this wonder product before.

If your eyes are getting you down, we have just the thing for you. Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex is a little tube of goodness that produces big results. Used morning and night (as advised on the packaging) it can help with wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffiness, dark circles, hyperpigmentation and skin sensitivity. It is suitable for drier and prematurely-ageing skin and we think the results will please you.

Smell Great with Dermalogica and Decleor

smell-greatHave you ever noticed that some people just smell amazing, even without strong perfumes or body sprays? For some of us, perfume isn’t an option because of allergies, migraines or some other reason, but it is possible to smell great, simply by choosing beauty products which contain fragrant essential oils. Dermalogica and Decleor offer many delightfully-scented products which offer great results as well as a subtly sumptuous scent – here’s just a few of our favourites:

Decleor Mandarine Smoothing Night Balm


This night balm is suitable for skin which is showing the first signs of age and comes from Decleor’s Aromessence range. It contains a blend of totally natural ingredients, including mandarine oil, shea butter, evening primrose oil and capuacu butter, all of which combine to hydrate and protect your skin whilst cocooning your face in a beautiful delicate scent.

Dermalogica Stress Relief Treatment Oil


Using oils is a great way to add scent to your skin without using perfumes and this oil from Dermalogica has the added benefit of being able to help you de-stress. It contains a heady blend of sandalwood, lavender, orange and clary sage, as well as tea tree, lemon and ylang-ylang which use their smells to soothe the mind and relax the body.

Decleor Neroli Hydrating Oil Serum


Unusually for an oil-based product this serum is actually suitable for all skin types and contains a blend of 100% natural oils which deeply moisturise, smooth and soften the skin. It’s a potent product (you only need to use two drops, morning and night to benefit from its effects) which will not only hydrate but also protect the skin from things which might dry it out through the course of the day, and it will smell great whilst doing so!

Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner


This toner from Dermalogica uses a combination of ingredients to create a fresh, invigorating spritz for the skin which has a wonderful fragrance and a truly multi-functional mandate. Balm mint and aloe vera cool the skin, lavender extract acts as a natural antiseptic to kill any nasty bacteria, whilst cucumber and arnica freshen and condition the skin. Perfect for use after shaving or sun exposure to cool the skin.

Decleor 24 Hour Hydrating Cream Light


Many ngiht creams are very heavy and rich to offer maximum hydration, but this one is much lighter and suitable for all skin types while still offering high levels of hydration, as well as a fragrance which is verging on heavenly! In fact, 85%of women noticed their skin was revitalised and softer after the first application, which is a result you just can’t ignore.

Show your skin a little love with Pure-Beauty


It is no secret that when we are stressed, one of the very first things to suffer is our skin. Just as we blush when we are embarrassed or excited, our skin also reacts to other emotional factors including anxiety, stress and tiredness.

At Pure-Beauty we stock an impressive range of world-class products from Dermalogica and Decleor which can help keep your skin feel healthy and loved all year round, whatever you throw at it.

A good beauty routine is essential for happy skin and the perfect starting point is the Dermalogica Skin Resurfacing Cleanser. Even after the first application, dry, prematurely ageing skin will feel smoother and ultra-clean. This dual-action exfoliating cleanser is high is active Lactic Acid which removes dead skin and accelerates cell renewal. Powerful, natural Vitamin E conditions the skin and thus enhances softness whilst strengthening the natural moisture barrier. Sweet smelling Rose Flower Oil calms sensitive skin and used morning and evening you will soon start to see a difference.

If it’s dehydration you want to combat, you really need to try Active Moist from Dermalogica. This lightweight, oil-free lotion is perfect for daily moisture protection for normal to oily skin. The sheer, easy-to-apply formula is jam packed with Silk Amino Acids and plant extracts which together smooth and improve the skin’s texture. Lemon, Watercress, Burdock and Ivy refine the skin whilst soothing extracts of Lavender, Mallow and Cucumber provide deep hydration all day long.

The delicate area around the eyes tends to be the first place to show signs of stress and dehydration. Vitamin C and Wild Yam have been used to develop Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair, which deals with prematurely aging skin and fine lines. The super-comforting cream also contains Cucumber, Butcherbroom and Arnica, which are excellent for maintaining optimum skin health and restoring suppleness. Antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E plus Grape Seed Extract come into play to protect the skin from the increasing harmful free radicals we come into contact with every day. Morning and evening, gently pat the product around the eye area, from the outer corner, and see the signs of stress melt away.

For a pick me up midweek, consider trying the Decleor Flash Radiance Mask. This ‘at home’ express treatment has been designed to not only revive your complexion but also hide minor skin imperfections. Elemi and Saro Essential Oils help promote circulation and also purify and cleanse the skin. Twice a week apply an even layer of the product to cleansed skin, leave on for three minutes, then rinse and reveal a smooth, even, radiant complexion.

Loading our skin with heavy cosmetics might be fine now and again but it can clog pores and dry out your complexion. Why not take a break from the norm and try the Dermalogica Sheer Tint SPF20? This lightly-tinted, hydrating treatment provides all-day colour as well as shielding your skin against damaging UV rays. Hydrolyzed Pearl amino acids, Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidant Walnut Seed extracts help improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine dehydration lines. Formulated without artificial fragrances or colours, this could be the addition your beauty bag has been waiting for.

It isn’t just the skin on our face that can take a battering; our bodies are pretty sensitive too and need a little TLC. Decleor Circularome Stimulating Body Serum is 100% pure and helps stimulate sluggish skin and boosts circulation. Apply in the morning after showering and before moisturising and work upwards over the entire body, paying particular attention to the legs. In time your skin will be softer than ever.

Product Focus: Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil

dermalogica-phyto-replenish-oilThis week, we’re excited to add a new product to our shelves; Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil. It’s a truly remarkable product which can be used on its own or added to your Dermalogica moisturiser and we thought we give you an overview of what’s in it and what it can do for your complexion.

So, What’s it For?

Phyto oil might sound a little weird and wonderful, but it has three simple functions: firstly, it strengthens the skin, making it more resilient and less susceptible to free-radicals which can do damage. Secondly, it deeply moisturises the skin, adding hydration but also locking it in to ensure that it stays moisturised. Lastly, it creates a shield for your skin to keep it protected from environmental damage.

What’s in It?

The ingredients of the Phyto Replenish Oil are the truly remarkable thing, not least of all because of the sheer variety of things that Dermalogica has packed into it! The strengthening element comes from phytoactives derived from camellia and tamanu oils, which help restore the skin’s natural barrier. The moisturising power comes from orchid flower and chia seed oils, which smooth visible dehydration lines and locks in vital moisture. Finally, sunflower, rice bran and rosemary extracts form a radiant antioxidant shield against free radical damage.

How Do I Use It?

As we mentioned above, this oil can either be used by itself or added to a base moisturiser to increase the hydrating power and help the skin to absorb it. The bottle needs to be held upside down for a couple of seconds to get the oil flowing and then, if you’re using it by itself, dispense 4-6 drops for smoothing over the face. If you’re adding it to your regular Dermalogica moisturiser, just 2-3 drops are needed, meaning even a small bottle of this can go a long way!

Who is it For?

This oil is best used on normal or dry skin types, especially those with areas of dryness or premature signs of ageing. It’s not recommended for oily skin as it can add to the overall production of sebum, effectively exacerbating the problem.

Clear acne with Dermalogica MediBac


Many of us think of acne as a teenage skin issue, but a surprising number of adults suffer too. As well as being painful, acne can also cause anxiety and embarrassment, something none of us want at any age.

At Pure-Beauty we recommend trying the Dermalogica MediBac Clearing System because the products really can help get things under control.

It you are looking for a medicated topical treatment to control breakouts, reduce congestion and control shine, give Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier a go. Niacinamide, Zinc Gluconate, Yeast Extract, Caffeine and Biotin reduce sebaceous activity whilst Salicylic Acid clears congested follicles to minimise future breakouts. Cinnamon Bark Extract reduces comedones (bumps associated with acne) and calming Green Tea and Chamomile soothes redness and inflammation. As well as all of this, organic silicones melt into skin to erase fine lines and the skin is left with a smoother, perfect matte finish. After cleansing apply the cream to problem areas and reapply during the day as required.

For extra protection why not follow the mattifier with the Dermalogica Oil Control LotionThis feather-light lotion contains micro-sponges that absorb the excess oil sitting on the skin’s surface. Salicylic Acid clears the congested follicles that can cause future breakouts, and Enantia Chlorantha Bark Extract controls over-active oil glands. Naturally-antiseptic Camphor, Balm Mint and Cornflower cool and calm inflammation and irritation. The overall effect is happier skin you can smile about once again.

Dermalogica Breakout Control helps clear, control and prevent breakouts but doesn’t dry the skin because it is free from Benzoyl Peroxide. This product uses gentle, yet effective ingredients and the invisible, fast-absorbing formula starts to work on acne-causing bacteria the moment it touches the skin. It is packed with clever oil-absorbing sponges that help control excess sebum and natural botanical ingredients, like tea tree oil and zinc sulfate, calm and soothe irritated skin.

Whilst your skin will be so much healthier when using these products, we know you don’t want spots on show. This is where the Dermalogica Concealing Spot Treatment comes into play. This natural-looking tint not only offers coverage, but also helps clear breakouts. Shake well before use and reapply to the affected area throughout the day as needed.

If you are looking for little more support for problem skin, why not try the Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel? After cleansing at night you simply apply a thin layer of the gel to your face and let the ingredients do their magic. Rosemary and Spiraea extracts prevent the growth of bacteria whilst stimulating the skin’s natural antimicrobial agents. Salicylic Acid treats pore-clogging skin cells and naturally antiseptic Tea Tree Oil assists in skin healing. When you wake in the morning cleanse and apply Dermalgica Clearing Mattifier to breakout prone areas.

The result of all these products is clearer, healthier skin but if you have any questions, or would like to try before you buy, get in touch and we will be delighted to help.
