Part 1: Cleanse. An alternative to Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel?

Hello there. You may have missed our introduction to the “An alternative to...” series but don’t worry,  if you did, you can catch it here. Otherwise, stick with us and read on to see what Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel has in common with Oqibo Purifying Cleanser and Toner. We’ll take you through a whistle stop tour of those similar, and not so similar, effects and show you why Oqibo could be a really great alternative if your Dermalogica days are in decline (or on the horizon!).

So, say hello to Oqibo Purifying Cleanser and Toner. It is an ultra gentle, dual use daily cleanser that delivers super effective cleaning without disturbing the delicate balance of the skin. The special blend of ingredients helps remineralise the skin for a healthy, radiant and morning fresh complexion all day. 

Much like Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel, Oqibo, Purifying Cleanser and Toner offers super effective yet gentle cleansing effects, here’s what else they have in common:

  • Gentle cleansing agents thoroughly clean without stripping or drying the skin
  • Ultra gentle, super mild fragrance
  • Dirt, debris and impurities are lifted with ease
  • Skin is purified, refreshed and comfortable
  • A Concentrated formula meaning a little goes a long way

How do they differ? Oqibo Purifying Cleanser and Toner offers a little extra, delivering these fabulous long-lasting effects through your daily cleansing routine.

  • Cleanses and tones in one dual-action formulation. One product, two actions.
  • Skin is conditioned, smoothed, balanced and refreshed.
  • Marine extracts restore, repair and remineralise the skins structure as you clean.
  • Algae extracts regulate sebum and protect the lipid barrier, reducing moisture loss and dehydration
  • The gentle formula can be used as a regular treatment to help boost the remineralising effects.
  • Puts back skin essentials lost during the cleansing process leaving skin radiantly soft, happy and healthy
  • Super value at just £23.65 250ml (as at January 2014)

If Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel is your daily saviour try Oqibo Purifying Cleanser and Toner for a wholly new cleansing experience (and if you’re not praying to the gods of great skincare, there’s always the 90 day no quibble money back guarantee to save the day).

Don’t forget to pop back shortly to catch up on Part 2: Exfoliate.

An alternative approach to your Dermalogica favourites

This time last year the team at Jersey Beauty Company found themselves amidst a flurry of confused questioning, a sea of worried faces and one too many crinkled brows for JBC’s liking. Delivering wow and happy began to turn tail and run off at speed into some strange and distant land. 

Why? Because sometimes things happen that are so unpredictable, they sneak up and grab you quietly from behind without so much as a whisper. In this case, for team JBC it meant a drastic change in prices for the much loved, coveted and oh so in demand Dermalogica. We won’t bore you with the details (If you missed the whole story, you can read it here ) but delivering wow and happy is what JBC do, so when phrases like “I can’t afford Dermalogica anymore, is there an alternative?” began to become a regular part of the day, JBC decided that the time was right to bring Professional Skincare range Oqibo fully into the fold. 

JBC are committed to delivering professional skincare products peppered liberally with expert advice to help skin feel fabulous every day - which is why Dermalogica is going nowhere any time soon. In fact, the JBC gang became ever more enthusiastic champions of the super lovely stuff contained in those bottles but, being such dedicated deliverers of wow and happy meant that when customers asked for an alternative, inaction was not an option. 

Oqibo is a small and perfectly formed range of professional skincare products that have super skin-loving effects and, whilst the range is no match in size to the vast array of Dermalogica products available, they make up for it in quality, offering great value alternatives to some of those Dermalogica favourites.

So, if you are a Dermalogica “couldn't shift me in a million years” kind of devotee, look away now. If however, you’re more of the “yes please! show me what you got” kind, you can get the low down on the Oqibo "An alternative to" series here  Part 1: Cleanse, with Part 2: Exfoliate, Part 3: Hydrating Moisture and Part 4: Nourishing Moisture to follow in the coming days.

Happy reading!
