I was invited to the launch event for these products held at the Dermalogica à Montreal skin center and was treatment to a great evening of learning and meeting other lovely ladies - and it is where I finally got to meet local beauty bloggers Alexandra and Chelsea (p.s. make sure to check out their lovely blogs here and here!). We were treated to a personal tour of the location where they offer a free service called Face Mapping at the 'Skin Bar', during which a specialist analyses your skin and will recommend you the best Dermalogica products for your skin type, which are also available for purchase on location. This concept space also offers MicroZone, a 20 minutes treatment that can whip your skin back into shape and something called Active Resurface, a 45 minute treatment which, as the name implies, is a method used for smoothing out the skin to look and feel rejuvenated.

Pure Light is a very nice daily moisturizer that has SPF 50 to prevent sun damage and contains ingredients such as red algae and hyaluronic acid to provide intense hydration and also battle dark spots and scarring. It has a very clean scent that I would compare to ginger, definitely very natural-scented.
Last in the kit is Pure Night, a heavy duty yet lightweight cream formula filled with vitamin C, cranberry and raspberry seed oils. It also has a pleasant light smell and sinks within seconds which is really refreshing in a night treatment.
These products can be bought in deluxe sizes in the Brightening Treatment Kit as shown above ($50 CDN for 3x10 ml) or individually as full-size products (retail prices are $120 for C-12 Pure Bright Serum, $106 for Pure Light, and $100 CDN for Pure Night).
Last but not least, I've been testing out the Dermalogica Redness Relief Primer SPF 20 ($62 CDN, 22 ml). This is my second time trying a green-tinted primer (see my review of the Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting Primer in Green here), and between the two, I much prefer the consistency of this one and also that it doesn't have a strong scent since it is free of artificial fragrances, colors or parabens. Some key ingredients include oat kernel oil, ginger root extract, eggplant fruit extract, basil flower and tumeric leaf extract - it is truly packed with the good stuff. I immediately noticed that it blurs a lot of my redness when used on its own and it literally feels like a moisturizer, perfect for use pre-makeup application.
Overall, I am super impressed with how these products have been performing. They are not harsh and I am progressively seeing less redness and scarring from use.
