For over 3 decades now, Dermalogica has been a preferred skincare brand for all beauty enthusiasts across the world with major skin concerns.

Addressing almost all skin issues from getting rid of oiliness to slowing down signs of aging, Dermalogica aims to better your skin’s health rather than provide you with luxurious scents and beautiful packaging. The products are extremely to the point and importantly enough, they work. They are formulated with artificial fragrances and colors and focus only on ingredients that are going to help the skin rather than look and smell beautiful on your vanity.

Here are the top 5 Dermalogica products that almost everyone in the beauty world tout as their cult favorites:
