My Favorite Cleanser

5

I got this cleanser from the place I go to for haircuts. I used to get the Ultracalming Cleanser, but they didn't have it that day, so they gave me this instead. I think the two cleansers are pretty much the same in terms of what they do for your skin. They both keep my skin clear (though not from blackheads), and cleared up my skin from all the whiteheads and little pimples I had. The only difference is that the ultracalming one has more of a gel consistency, while this one has a watery one. Both last around six months. This is probably the cleanser I will use for a long time to come, unless I find something better, which is doubtful. Definitely recommend!

This is the best face wash in the world!

I can not live without this face wash. It does everything! Takes make up off, clears acne, smooths my skin, and prevents dryness and oily ness all at the same time. My skin always looks brighter and glowing after I use this. Look no further this is dermalogica's best product.

This is the only face wash I've used for 14 years. It's refreshing and light weight. It leaves your skin feeling clean and very soft even without moisturizer. Special Cleansing Gel is my favorite!

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

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.

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

Is the special cleansing gel a clear green color? I previously bought a bottle and was filling my small travel size container. Threw away the original bottle. I am pretty sure it is the special cleansing gel, but want to make sure before I repurchase again.

Can I use this to remove my make up? I went for a facial and she sold me the special cleansing gel and active moist. I wear foundation to work and am wondering if this is a good product to remove my make up or not. Thanks!

Patrice

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. For best results, double cleanse at night to thoroughly remove makeup and debris from the day. You can use Precleanse first and follow with Special Cleansing Gel. Kind Regards, Bernadette
