Best cleanser ever. One prob...expensive!!
I really love using Special Cleansing Gel- it is a gentle, high quality face wash that leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. It has some beneficial botanical ingredients, and smells so soothing and comforting. Although it's pricey, a bottle should last a long time, as a little bit goes a very long way. It isn't too easy to find- some salons (designated to sell Dermalogica products) and beauty supply stores carry it. It's best to check the dermalogica website to see where you can buy it.
I used this at my cousin's place a while ago, since I forgot to pack face wash...I loved it, and bought my own bottle shortly after. It creates a nice, foamy lather that rinses clean, leaving me with soft, fresh skin- not at all tight or dry. It hasn't contributed to breakouts, actually keeping my skincare routine free of harsh, drying products has been very beneficial. I have combination skin (oily t-zone, normal cheek area), and this has been perfect for me. It is suitable for all skin types- it's very gently and effectively cleanses skin. I don't usually pay much for beauty products, but am willing to make an exception for this.
I purchased this upon recommendation from my esthetician. It didn't make me break out or dry my skin out, and I liked the product a lot, but when I ran out, I didn't like it enough to re-purchase.
It is just a basic, gentle cleanser...way, way overpriced. I like that is is mostly natural, but there are so many drugstore cleansers that will do the same job for a lot less out of your pocket.
It makes my skin feeling very fresh and clean and soft to touch.I also love the smell.My HG cleanser.
Again, another must have product.
Great for the price, you honestly need less than a pea-sized amount to wash your face with so the bottle lasts a very long time.
I love that it's super effective yet gentle, i can open my eyes while cleansing my face with this product, i value that in products because my skin is sensitive and if a product hurts your eyes, imagine what it does to your skin!!
All around, a great cleanser that anyone could use.
While this product is expensive in my opinion, it definitely works well. It is a light cleansing gel that is lightly scented. It cleans well but leaves your skin fresh and not dry and tight! So basically a good cleanser without overdrying effects!
I absolutely love this stuff. It smells amazing, and my face feels clean without feeling tight. I used to get hormonal acne but ever since I switched to Dermalogica products I haven't had any problems with acne *knock on wood*. I'm normal to dry (pretty dry in the winter) and I use this with my Clarisonic. I also use the Gentle Cream Exfoliant once a week. I'm still using up my Clinique moisturizer I bought but it's not enough for winter, so once that's gone I'm going to try to Dermalogica moisturizer as well. It IS expensive but a little goes a long way, this bottle will last months. My only complaint is that it dispenses too much gel -- it's really hard to get the perfect amount out so I feel like I waste it sometimes. But if it helps my skin look amazing that's not a big deal to me at all. Very impressed with Dermalogica and will continue to purchase!
I switched to Dermalogica about 5 months ago and my skin has completely cleared up and looks so healthy. This cleanser is a clear fragrance-free gel that removes every last trace of makeup off my face. My makeup remover has been collecting dust on the shelf since I started using the cleanser. It does slightly dry my face, but that doesn't bother me since I moisturize my skin afterwards. It is pretty expensive, but the bottle lasts for ages because it only takes a tiny amount to cover my entire face. I think I will be sticking to Dermalogica for now!
First off, let me explain my skin type because the profile may not really give the correct reflection- especially for the way my skin reacted to it. I have combination skin, it is generally 'normal' with occasional oiliness, but in addition, it is dehydrated but NOT dry, yetit tends to break out if I use heavier moisturizers.
I use a clarisonic to cleanse my skin once at night, so in the morning I use this cleanser on its own. I liked its texture and the amount it lathered- it seemed to do a good job cleaning my face at first, even though it didn't lather as much as my regular stuff does. However, in less than a week my face was dry and flaked a lot. My cheeks and chin are generally flaking while my forehead is visibly dry. My skin is never like this. I don't think I will be able to use this product on my face anymore, will probably just use it as a shower gel or something.
The good thing is that I got it in a set so its a really small size, but I haven't started using the other products in the set, and now I'm a bit wary.
I had my first facial (I'm 30) about 2 months ago and the spa used Dermalogica.
I have always wanted to try the brand, but wasn't sure due to the price tag. So I thought I'd just go for facials every few months.
The esthetician sold me on the Special Cleansing Gel and a few other products and said that I wouldn't have to come as often for a facial if I were using the right products.
I must say that after a couple months of washing my face "properly", it looks really good.
I will continue using this face wash (I just have to buy it in the US because it is far more cheaper than in Canada).
