Absolute favorite cleanser!

I am so happy to have been introduced to this cleanser. I have sensitive and acne prone skin so i am always skeptical on trying new products. However, I think I have found my line! This cleanser saved my skins life along with the combination of other products I am also hooked to!

My go to facial cleanser

5

This is my daily facial cleanser and I love it. Never ever leaves my skin feeling dry or too oily. Removes all my makeup in the evenings as well. I have started having my young daughter use it as well to prevent any breakouts on her skin. Never irritates my skin and is great for using multiple times per day.

Gentle and Effective

I love this cleanser! It leaves my face feeling so clean without ever stripping it of moisture. I massage it into my skin but do not have to scrub to get it to remove makeup. A small amount goes a long way with this cleanser so one bottle can last a long time, even with double cleansing each night.

Great cleaner

This was recommended to me by a specialist because I tend to have reddish skin on my face. This has been a great cleanser for my face and make up remover. Its no abrasive, no stinging and smells good too.

Hello, I have been using the Dermalogica Ultra calming cleanser since the start of the year but i have found that when I have used it AM and PM, my skin is quite dry around my blemishes/spots, would you suggest that I switch to the special cleansing gel? I just use the cleanser at night now and a cream cleanser in the AM so my skin is better but the ultra is soon to run out so hoping for another product. Thanks Melissa

Mel

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I personally like to use Ultra Calming Cleanser in the morning and Special Cleansing Gel at night. :) Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Hello, My daughter is turning 12, her skin looks normal, but I was wondering if she needs to use any product for a daily maintenance at this age? Thank you!

Marina

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. She can use Special Cleansing Gel and Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion to maintain her skin and keep it clean and moisturized. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I am a teen, and I have really oily skin. I want to get rid of my shine and my oily skin, it gets extremely oily after a few hours. I also often get spots on my face and a lot of blackheads. Would you recommend this or a different routine?

Joe

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Dermal Clay Cleanser, Breakout Clearing All Over Toner and Oil Free Matte SPF 30 during the day. At night, try Precleanse, Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash, Breakout Clearing All Over Toner and Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I am wanting to switch to Dermalogica products. I am trying to find the best face wash for me.i am mid 30's i have open pores on my checks from when i was a teen and get black/whiteheads still.any advise would br appreaciated!

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Special Cleansing Gel is a mild cleanser that will deep clean without stripping your skin. You only need the size of a pea, and its safe to use over the eyes. It is for oily, normal, or combination skin. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I have dry skin and I get random breakouts on my forehead and around my chin. Is this the product I should use?

Ruby

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Special Cleansing Gel is a mild cleanser that will deep clean without stripping your skin. You only need the size of a pea, and its safe to use over the eyes. It is for oily, normal, or combination skin. You can use this morning and night. Then use a spot treatment like Breakout Clearing Booster on the individual breakouts. Follow with a light weight moisturizer like Active Moist. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

what is the shelf life for the special cleansing gel

ary

Hello, Products containing SPF and Acne actives will have an expiration date on the bottle. Once the product reaches the date stamped on the packaging it should no longer be used, otherwise the shelf life for unopened products is about 2-3 years. All other products have an open jar symbol, which is the diagram drawing of a jar with lid and a number in the jar. Most commonly used is 24 M. This means that once opened, the product may be used up to 24 months. This does not mean however that the product may not have changed in smell, texture or even efficacy it only means that it is SAFE to use based on stability data which differs from product to product but in the majority of cases is 24-36 months. We hope this addresses your concerns. Thanks for your inquiry and interest in Dermalogica. Sincerely, Bernadette

Bernadette

I have mildly oily skin but after a shower ect my face feels dry. I have been using special cleansing gel or dermal clay cleaner and Active moist but I suffer from breakouts that are deep under the skin spots that appear more like lumps with no head. what product would you recommend to prevent the breakouts?

Lucy

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Breakout Control is an acid-free spot treatment that is non-drying. However, it is very effective. Apply a thin, clear layer to breakouts. Use it under moisturizer, morning and night. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Does this have salicylic acid?

Hannah

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This does not contain Salicylic Acid. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi My daughter is 11 she is just beginning to get the odd spot and i am looking to find a very gentle skin care routine for her. She is allergic to tea-tree and as I say her skin is very reactionary. I am thinking she needs a gentle cleansing wash and a light moisturiser but am open to advice. Any product suggestions will be appreciated. Regards Nina Hodgson

Mrs M

At eleven her skin I think would be too sensitive for cleansers, I agree with the other person that it would be wise to speak to her pediatrician.

Mid-west girl

Hello, Please check with her pediatrician. Thank you.

Can Special Cleansing Gel be used to remove eye makeup?

Linda

Hello Linda, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, it can. However, I personally prefer to remove with Soothing Eye Makeup or Precleanse and then I follow with Special Cleansing Gel. Kind Regards, Bernadette
