I got this product after realizing, my skin wasn't as smooth as I wanted it to be. I tried a few samples and loved it. I apply it in the shower and leave it on for ten minutes till I'm done washing or as I'm doing work. It stays put and doesn't drip. My skin is fairly sensitive but this doesn't break me out. I use it about 2x a week. I noticed that if I skip, I have clogs showing up randomly. The only con would be the strange smell. Other than that, I love it!

After Lisa Eldridge recommended this in one of her videos, I had to get it. But Iīm a little disappointed. It doesnīt have much of an effect on my skin, except making it a bit softer right after using it. Itīs gentle and doesnīt upset it, and it isnīt perfumed. I appreciate that. But I donīt see a difference in my skin. Wonīt buy again.

I received a decent sized sample of the Gentle Cleansing Cream in a Dermalogica skin care kit. I am a bit on the combo - oily side, but needed some TLC for dry and irritated skin. I chose Dermalogica because there is a spa that carries the line on the main floor of the building I work in. I guess you can say I tried out the brand due to laziness : )

The Gentle Cleansing Cream has a strange, chemical like smell (not at all like the herbaceous freshness of other Dermalogica products). It went on like a thicker lotion and I was happy that it did not take much out of the sample tube to coat my face evenly. I did not feel a sting as I applied and allowed the product to sit, but later that evening some areas of my face felt a wee bit tender. After application, I mix a bit of an alcohol free toner with moisturizer and pat the finishing touches of my skincare ritual into my face. My face is brighter after using the Gentle Exfoliating Cream and it has helped a bit with clogged pores and spots. I am happy that I can use this a few times a week. It is quite gentle and effective. Not at all harsh like other AHA or BHA products. *glares at PC and Neostrata*

I have gotten 4 applications of of the sample sized tube and will get one more use before I am out. The product price is $50 Canadian. Will I purchase? YES! Is the price terrible? Not too bad when compared to Neostrata 10-2 AHA/BHA toner (level...whatever the strongest one is) at $30 per (very small) bottle.

Okay, this stuff is great. I'm a big fan of exfoliation, but I'd always used a scrubby method -- usually a cream cleanser and a nice hot washcloth. This enzyme-based product does a better job than my usual method, is as gentle as advertised and is simple and easy to use. I've been using it twice a week for about a month, and I've noticed a huge improvement in the texture and clarity of my skin. I have very sensitive skin, and I haven't had any kind of redness, stinging or lingering reaction to this product. Just great-feeling, clean, soft skin. I'm a total convert. It's certainly not cheap, but the price on Amazon isn't bad -- I think I paid $27 -- and even using it twice a week I'm estimating that the tube I've got should last the better part of a year, so it's not so bad.

My routine in case anyone is interested: wash with Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser and hot washcloth morning and night, a tiny bit of Cetaphil cream (in the big tub) as daily moisturizer, Dermalogica exfoliating mask twice a week.

I really enjoyed using this product. It's unlike any other exfoliant I've tried - it's gentle and not abrasive like so many other facial scrubs out there. It takes a total of about ten minutes to apply, wait, and rinse the product off. Once you're done, you'll feel a nice, noticeable difference. My face usually comes out feeling clean, but not stripped of essential oils. The Gentle Cream Exfoliant is on the pricey side, but a little goes a long way - so it should last anywhere from a few months to a year. I use it about once or twice a week.

The first 2 times I used this it seriously dried my skin out, but subsequent applications left my skin so much smoother and clearer. I've tried glycolic acid products and I have to say this product which has lactic acid is much gentler on the skin. New favourite.

Can't live without it! It's the only exfoliant product that doesn't irritate my skin and actually got rid my blackheads in no time! I use it once a week, or if any special occasion occurs twice the week before! But my boyfriend who has really oily skin should use it twice a week (but he does it when he has day off, almost never)

Great product! I use this when my pores are clogged and when i have breakouts. My skin looks better immediately - clearer and softer from the exfoliation. It's a bit pricey, but I've had mine for over a year, so it's money well spend imo.

Highly recommended!
