The Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon is a gel-cream texture that is to be applied over the entire face right before going to sleep at night. I really enjoy the texture and how is absorbs quickly, but that is all I like about this gel-cream. In the morning after I rinse my face off for the day my skin feels and looks dry, flaky, and dehydrated. I used this for about three weeks and I think my face is missing it's normal mask that I normally use. The Sound Sleep Cocoon contains several fragrance components. This also contains the slightly fragrant Albizia Julibrissin Bark Extract, AKA Persian Silk Tree, which is sixth on the ingredient list. I wish they focused on antioxidants and moisturizers instead of fragrance. This could have been great but instead it is a definite pass. My more detailed review can be seen here:

I like the results from this, but the "rice smell" turns my stomach. I much prefer very botanical skin products. The very best exfoliant I have ever used is 001 Precious Finds Peel. This stuff is amazing to use, and the results are perfect. Pity it's so hard to find.

In a time when most shampoo and shower cream manufacturers move away from Sulphates, SLS (Sodium laurel Sulphate) and SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulphate) and it’s likes and make their cleansing products Sulphate free due to sulphates these days documented destructive ability to create long term (sometimes chronic) dryness of skin, dried out hair, causing skin irritation and itchiness just to name a few of the problems with sulphates - It feels a bit strange when you see a well merited skincare brand like dermalogica base one of their best selling face cleansers on said Sulphates... (see ingredient list above for details). Sodium laureth Sulphates is actually the main ingredient besides water in Special cleansing gel... To really excel in Sulphates dermalogica also added another Sulphate, Sodium trideceth Sulphate to its cleanser... Now the market USP of this cleanser is that it is a “lathering cleansing gel” that is “soap free”, indicating that soap supposedly is something bad for you... ?! This means the special cleansing gel does not contain the in comparison with Sulphates completely harmless ingredients of soap, like oils and lye and in worst case the horribly dangerous (not) ingredient glycerine for instance. ;) Because we would not want to put any of that onto our skins now, would we...???! Now the weird thing is that the only thing you can add to a soap compound that will be bad for skin, but that can help a soapy formula to lather up real good is, you guessed it; Sulphates!!! But now if you don’t want to use oil and lye to make the soap saponify you will have to use Even more of the chemical that brings the bubbles, but also the harm to skin... Enter extra many Sulphates... In my humble opinion, there are so many really good cleansers of all kinds gels, creams, milks, and even lathering ones without Sulphates on the market today so I really don’t see any reason what so ever to use a facial cleanser that pretty much is made solely of sulphates... Also if you are the least environmentally interested it might also be good to know that Mother Nature cannot break down sulphates which means that when we use it on our faces or in our hair it then washes out into our waters and affects the sea life and the eco system there for eternity, making it harder for our eco systems and fish to survive... If you want a similar in texture but truly mild cleanser that completely washes off with no residue but that doesn’t wreak havoc on our skins long term or our oceans but doesn’t lather a favourite of mine is the triple cleanser from Alpha-H. It does not remove make up as efficiently, but works great in the morning or as a second cleanse at night if you really want to be able to remove excess cleanser after make up removal!

This did not clean my skin. If you need something that removes dirt and oil, don't use this. On the plus side, this is a gentle cleanser and probably great for people who are fine with just rinsing their face with water or micellar water. I do use an oil cleanser to remove my makeup first but then this cleanser doesn't remove the oil so... Basically useless for me. In the mornings, I can't use this either since I need to remove my heavy night moisturizer and face oils. So I've just been using philosophy micro delivery wash and shiseido ibuki purifying cleanser with my kose oil makeup remover.
