Will not use anything else. Perfect for my skin. Anytime I use something else I end up regretting it. Although it is expensive it lasts for 6-8 months. Worth every cent! Been using it for years.
I used this product for years and absolutely loved it. I like that it is a gentle gel cleanser that cleans my face without stripping it and doesn't add any heavy cream or oil that would clog my pores. That being said, my spa was out of stock about six months ago so I bought a St. Ives peach gel cleanser at a drugstore for $3.99 and I found it lasts just as long and is just as effective as my $75.00 bottle of Dermalogica. I like this product but will not purchase anymore.
This cleanser is my HG! It refines my pores,cleanses without stripping essential oils and leaves your skin feeling amazing. The best cleanser I have ever had. Will repurchase forever.
NOTE: I have dry skin that is prone to eczema when I don't take care of it well. My cousin gave me this as her boyfriend works at Myer and receives items discounted and prior to this, I used Cetaphil's Oily skin cleanser. Yes I have dry skin but it worked well however made my skin a little dry. ANYWAY on to the Dermalogica cleanser. This thing is amazing! I use it every night in the shower to wash my face and I squirt half a pump into my palms and wash my face, rinse, then squirt another half a pump and rinse. This really gets rid of everything on my face - although I usually only wear sunscreen on a daily basis and when I do wear makeup I wipe it off before washing my face. This thing not only effectively cleans my face but it also doesn't leave my face super dry and "stripped". I also feel that it has reduced the number of pimples I get (however I'm not prone to pimples naturally so it may or may not be because of this). All in all, this cleanser is fabulous and people with dry skin - don't be afraid to use this! (may not be suitable for those with extremely dehydrated skin).
I have oily/acne-prone/sensitive skin but it is also dehydrated, so its always been really hard for me to find the right skincare.
After using a sample sachet of this cleanser, I was immediately impressed and I knew I had to buy it. I had been using Artistry's Balancing Cleanser for over 3 years which worked well because it was gentle but did nothing special for my skin otherwise.
Special Cleansing Gel is a clear gel that foams up with water. I wet my face and put a pea-sized amount into wet hands and turn it into a foamy lather, then I apply it to my face in circular motions for a minute to get a good clean and rinse off with water.
My skin is left feeling really clean but not tight whatsoever, my skin feels hydrated which is what I love about it compared to anything I've tried before. It really does have that 'cooling' effect, which helps the redness from my breakouts settle down.
It has a very natural scent to it, a slight bit of lavender and something else I cant put my finger on but its a very pleasant scent which doesn't really appeal to me but doesn't turn me off either. I bought it in 500ml, which comes with a pump that makes it really easy to dispense the perfect amount of product. Dermalogica is an expensive brand but for the price of their large bottles you really get a lot that will last 1 year+.
So far with continued use my skin has really turned around from what it was and is finally looking more calm and clearer! Really happy I got the chance to sample this product as I've found a great cleanser for my skin type.
Simply THE BEST CLEANSER Ever known to man!
This facial cleanser totally rocks! I love how it thoroughly cleanses my face daily and doesn't make my face swell up, break out, or tight by any means. The ingredients are great and the results are awesome. I love how great my face looks and feels after using this gel. I TOTALLY RECOMMEND!!
Definitely my HG cleanser: This, in combination with the PreCleanse and Daily Microfoliant, are my new cannot-live-without. My skin has stopped breaking up completely; this cleanser is not harsh like most, does not dry my skin like most use to, but still fells cleanse and soft. Spectacular!
I love this cleanser. It is the only wash-off cleanser that works for my sensitive combo skin. The trick is to use very little product (less than a pea-size dab), foam it up with your hands and then wash your face with the foam. Not with the gel itself! By using SCG like this, it is the best cleanser ever. Removes dirt and makeup very effectively. Sometimes I might double-cleanse with this cleanser or with Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse. When I use SCG my skin is dewy, soft and healthy. When I try other wash-off cleansers my skin tends to dry out.
I'm almost done my first bottle of this product and I have to say I'm quite satisfied. I use this cleanser on a daily basis with my clarasonic. I like how it doesn't tighten my skin (doesn't strip away moisture) and it foams up just to the right amount. I also like how the fragrance is mild and isn't overpowering.
Maybe it's the combination of removing all traces of make up and using the clarasonic together, I find that my skin is a lot cleaner afterwards.
I would recommend this product to others and would rebuy!
