I use this product several times a day and love it.
Very light cleanser that leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. Make sure to wipe face down and take off all makeup before using or you won't get the full effect!!!
I've been a faithful user of another well-known brand for years. I felt that my 46-year old, dry, sensitive skin wasn't looking its best and I had heard a lot of great things about Dermalogica products. I ordered this cleanser and am now so pleased with the results! This clear cleanser foams up even with just the little that you need. My skin feels so clean and not in the tight, dry way that my old cleanser left my skin feeling. I am thrilled with this product!
This product is fantastic! It leaves your skin feeling beautiful and deep cleansed - an easy and quick spa-like cleanse, that your face really deserves. I use this as part of my twice a week (sometimes three times) 'at home spa facial treat!' - alongside the PreCleanse! (My other favourite! ) One measure of the Special Cleansing Gel, applied to your face, add a little water to foam and your skin will feel amazing! Then simply rinse away! Highly recommended and Dermalogica's customer service is amazing too!
This is one of the best facial cleaners I have ever tried. It cleans my face, and it lathers well making my face feel clean and refreshed. It does not irritate my sensitive skin or dehydrate it. I will continue to use this product, I enjoy it very much!
I have been using this for about 15 years and they changed the formula just recently it seems. It smells horrid and feels greasy in a way it didn't use to.
Relaxing face cleanser that bubbles. Love the texture. I use it after precleanse. Double relaxation.

It does not clean your face like it used too. It also smells different 😝
I have extremely sensitive, combination skin. I used literally EVERY product on the market and spent a lot of money. The products I used for sensitive skin didn't clean properly, the products I used to clean dirt and grease irritated my skin. This cleanser is very effective, it transformed my skin from DAY 1. It is fragrance free, cleaned my skin and minimized the pores. However, because it contains SLS and parabens and is daily use product, everytime I applied it on my skin I was thinking about the parabens my skin was absorbing in and felt anxious. Plus, SLS in it gave me a slight irritation on nose and cheeks. If Dermalogica replaces SLS and parabens with less harmful alternatives then this cleanser will be my holy grail! I will use it forever and recommend it to everyone.

Hello, Products containing SPF and Acne actives will have an expiration date on the bottle. Once the product reaches the date stamped on the packaging it should no longer be used, otherwise the shelf life for unopened products is about 2-3 years. All other products have an open jar symbol, which is the diagram drawing of a jar with lid and a number in the jar. Most commonly used is 24 M. This means that once opened, the product may be used up to 24 months. This does not mean however that the product may not have changed in smell, texture or even efficacy it only means that it is SAFE to use based on stability data which differs from product to product but in the majority of cases is 24-36 months. We hope this addresses your concerns. Thanks for your inquiry and interest in Dermalogica. Sincerely, Bernadette
Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Breakout Control is an acid-free spot treatment that is non-drying. However, it is very effective. Apply a thin, clear layer to breakouts. Use it under moisturizer, morning and night. Kind Regards, Bernadette
