Review: Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Firm

Earlier this week, I went to Nanita Dalton for a Dermalogica facial and of course, it was nothing short of amazing. I can’t rave enough about the excellent level of service I receive at that salon. The whole process including the products that are used are completely customised to suit my skin’s needs. And the therapists are so knowledgeable which I’m sure is a testament to the top-notch training they receive. At some point I remember thinking that I wish I could plug a flash drive into my therapist’s head and transfer all of her knowledge about skincare into my brain. How cool would that be?! Anyway, besides all that, it’s the little extras like the heated bed, the eyebrow grooming and the sample pack that make the experience so enjoyable every time.

Of course, I also have to mention how awesome Dermalogica products are. This week I experienced three Dermalogica products that I have never used before:

1. Essential Cleaning Solution – a rich creamy cleanser perfect for ladies with dry skin like me.
2. Daily Resurfacer – a leave-on exfoliating treatment. I LOVE this product especially because exfoliating is so important, even in Winter.
3. Skin Perfect Primer – used to smooth away fine lines and preps the skin for make-up application. It’s nice to know Dermalogica have a primer too.

I absolutely love all of them and I wish I could add them to my collection right away but for now the samples from my sample pack will have to do. Let’s talk about a product that was recommended by my therapist and is now a favourite in my collection – Dermalogica’s Age Smart Multivitamin Power Firm.

It is said to help accelerate skin’s natural repair process with Vitamin A (Retinol), as antioxidant vitamins C and E improve elasticity. Silicones shield vulnerable skin against further assault and Seaweed Extract helps firm and minimise the appearance of fine lines.

Luckily, I have no visible lines around my eyes just yet but I’m at a critical age where prevention is key. This product is just perfect for my objective. The formula is gentle, silky and creates a protective layer around my eyes without feeling heavy or greasy.

I apply the product twice a day after my toner and concentrate on the areas just below my brow bone and on my cheekbone. The product will migrate two centimetres in all directions. Avoid applying too much eye cream or moisturiser on your eyelids as this may cause those whitish bumps called Milia to appear.

The Multivitamin Power Firm has a divine fruity smell and can even be used on lips. I rate the product quite highly but don't take my word for it. Stop by the nearest Dermalogica stockist and ask for a sample.


  1. I love the Multivitamin Power Firm. I have a travel size sample. (maybe a but smaller) and I'm going to cry when it's finished. Fab product. Great review :)

    1. It really is such a great product. Thanks for stopping by Chicara!

  2. I love Dermalogica - I've been using their Daily Microfoliant and their Special Cleansing Gel and they just work so well! This is now next on my to-buy list - it sounds amazing :) xx

    1. I have so many Dermalogica products that I want to add to my collection. Dermalogica just works for my skin. Thanks for the comment Loren!
