Review: Dermalogica V&A Concept Store

Dermalogica V&A Concept Store | All Dolled Up

I don’t think anyone would argue with the fact that Dermalogica make some of the best quality skincare around. Daily Microfoliant and PreCleanse have long been part of Camilla and my beauty routines, and we’ve never tried a product that we didn’t adore. Everything in the professional-grade line is targeted, highly effective, and free of common irritants – you quite simply can’t go wrong. As part of the brand’s 20th anniversary in South Africa, they opened a new concept store at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, offering the full retail experience as well as a range of skin health treatments. These include…

Skin Solutions: Dry vs. Dehydrated

Dry vs. Dehydrated Skin

Until very recently, I had no idea that there was a difference between dry and dehydrated skin, and it occurred to me that many of you may not have known either. It is especially relevant going into winter, so here is my guide to telling the difference and how to address each particular concern.

The finish is satiny and far less greasy than the Garnier equivalent. 2. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant I received a sample of this from a friend in the industry…

Travel Beauty: Skincare For Long Haul Flights

Long Haul Flight Skincare Essentials

I was inspired to do this post after watching this fantastic video by Lisa Eldridge on her in-flight beauty routine for long journeys. I’ve adapted this to include products that I own and that are available in South Africa (everything except the Hydraluron). Here’s what I’ll be doing when we get on the plane tomorrow evening while my other half looks on in amusement: 1. Run a blob of Phyto 9 Daily Ultra Nourishing Botanical Cream through the mid-section of my hair down to the ends to help lock in moisture and nourish my strands while in the air. 2. Give…

My Skincare Routine: Tamsin

Tamsin, Jules & Camilla

This week we’ll be introducing a new series about other people’s skincare routines. The idea is to share different products, cleansing methods, skin types and concerns with you beyond our own experience. First up is Tamsin, our bestie, who has beautiful, pale skin that is normal to dry. She worries about fine lines and congestion on her nose and chin. “I use Dermalogica’s range, which is all plant-based, and my skin loves it. It’s expensive but each product lasts 3-6 months so I save up and ask friends to bring it over from the UK, where it is cheaper. Your…
