I like the deep cleansing feeling after use. I use this at least once a week or when needed during those oily skin days. I recommend cleaning face wth a white face cloth.
Skin feels clean and refreshed
I have oily, acne prone skin. This really deep cleanses but without drying out my skin. It feels so fresh and tingly too
Great on oily Skin
I have been using this product for almost 4 years, and it's great on oily skin, it makes your skin silky smooth and super fresh. It absorbs the extra shine, that comes with oily skin, and hydrates my skin to keep it balanced.
Thoroughly cleanses without overly drying. Refreshing.
Minty and Cool
This product left my skin feeling cool and refreshed. The minty feeling is most beneficial during the summer months. I have combination-oily skin. I found this product I noticed that when I used this product that my face was very clean with minimum residue remaining when I used my Multi-Active toner.
I Would buy this product over and over
this is the first ever product I tried from dermalogica and it is amazing. It cleansing the skin w/o overdrying and you feel refreshed after use. I combine it with the skin prep scrub and use the multiactive toner and active moist when I hop out of the shower and it has helped to make my skin smooth and soft. It doesn't really help in preventing breakouts as much but it really helps maintain the skin texture and oiliness.
An absolute essential
I've used this product for longer than I can remember and I couldn't be without it. I have congested, oily and breakout prone skin and it's the only thing keeps the breakouts at bay for me. Anytime i try something else I come back to it. Wish I knew about it in my teenage years!
Amazing quality, leaves face feeling fresh.
Fort Wayne, IN
Love this product.
Best oil control line I have ever used and I have tried a lot of different products. This controls my oil the best. I have very oily skin. I would wake up oily and in about 2 hours after applying make up my face would shine but not with this oil control line.
I love this product
I read a lot of reviews about dermalogica and most of them were positive. I went to my local ulta and bought the trial set and fell in love!!!!
Hi, can you use this product whilst pregnant? Thanks
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, but always check with your doctor.
My face is very oily but I have no spots or blackheads and my pores are not bad. Special cleanser or dermal clay cleanser?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If you skin is very oily, I suggest Dermal Clay Cleanser. If it is combination, I suggest Special Cleansing Gel.
I am using the dermal clay cleanser and have started differin. 1. I use the dermal clay cleanser morning and night and the differin at night. Is this cleanser ok to use with a retinoid? It does not dry me out.
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser does not exfoliate the skin. So you can use the cleanser with your prescriptions. Check with your doctor to be sure.
I have combo oily skin with hormonal acne that tends to show up on my chin and cheeks with a little bit of redness. Would this be a good cleanser? What toner and moisturizer would it pair good with?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser is for a an extremely oily face. Clearing Skin Wash is for a full face of acne. Special Cleansing Gel is for normal, combination, etc skin. You may like Active Moist as a moisturizer.
How often can you use this product? Can you use it every day?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use this product morning and night. Please note it is only for extremely oily skin. If you are combination, you may prefer Special Cleansing Gel.
Hi there! I was looking into buying several of your travel sized products including this one but it does not seem to be available. When will it be available online?? Thank you so much!
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser has been discontinued in travel size, but is still available in larger sizes.
This is continuation of question I asked earlier. It did not allowed me to submit this

Thermal Clay Cleaner ( I will use this in Morning and Use Special Cleaning Gel in Night )

Oil Control Lotion ( Use in day time and use after applying C-12 Serum and before Pure Light SPF 50 )
Breakout Control ( Use in Night , after C-12 serum and before Pure Night )
Can you guide me ?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please try this regimen:
Dermal Clay Cleanser
Multi Active Toner
C 12 Pure Bright Serum
Oil Free Matte SPF 30
Dermal Clay Cleanser
Multi Active Toner
C 12 Pure Bright Serum
Pure Night with 1-2 drops of Phyto Replenish Oil
I have been using the special cleansing gel but it does not seem to be enough for my combination skin. I saw this one and was thinking in giving it a try. I'm currently pregnant. Before I buy it, I wanted to find out if this product is safe to be used during pregnancy.
Thank you for being a Dermalogica customer. Yes, Dermal Clay cleanser is safe to use while pregnant.
Does this cleanser pair with the daily microfoliant?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser is amazing for excessively oily skin. If you are truly oily, then yes Daily Microfoliant will pair wonderfully with the product.
is this harsh on sensitized oily acne prone skin?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser is for excessively oily skin. It also has a cooling effect. If your skin is excessively oily, this may be the best option for you. If you are more combination, you may prefer Special Cleansing Gel. Special Cleansing Gel is a mild cleanser that will deep clean without stripping your skin. You only need the size of a pea, and its safe to use over the eyes. It is for oily, normal, or combination skin.
