FREE Summer Refresh Set w/any $60 Dermalogica purchase
This non-irritating, naturally-foaming cleanser is the perfect start to around-the-clock control of breakouts, comedones and excess surface oils. Salicylic Acid sloughs off dead skin cells to clear clogged follicles, helping to prevent future breakout activity. Soothing, naturally-antiseptic extracts of Balm Mint, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Burdock and Camphor calm congested, aggravated skin. Skin is left clean and prepped for optimal absorption of acne control treatment ingredients. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

How it works:
  • Naturally-foaming cleanser clears away excess oil without stripping skin.
  • Salicylic Acid aids in clearing congested follicles and soothing irritation.
  • An anti-acne blend of botanical extracts including Licorice, Calendula, Milk Thistle, Lemon Peel, Arnica and Bergamot works with Salicylic Acid to help prevent future breakouts.
  • Tea Tree, Burdock, Eucalyptus, Golden Seal and Chamomile help eliminate bacteria.
  • Camphor and Menthol cool inflammation.

We recommend that first-time Dermalogica users visit an authorized skin treatment professional for a client consultation in an ULTA store.

    Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash:

    Not sure why there is so many "GREAT" reviews. This is horrible! I woke up everytime with new acne and I DON'T EVEN GET ACNE THAT BAD! I used this product for a month as I should and everything just got worse. I'm returning this horrible product and can't figure out why the reviews are so great! Anyways if you want to break out bad then this is the product for you.

                  I went for my first facial and the esthetician used the DERMALOGICA products on my face. She recommended this as my daily wash and I've been using it since. It doen't dry my face out and it helps control my acne. I haven't been on birth control in years and this products WORKS great and keeping my skin smooth and blemish/pimple free!

                        Hello Marvis:

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If your skin is very sensitive, you should use the Ultracalming Cleanser. It is a gentle cleansing gel/cream for reactive skin. Helps calm and cool the redness and heat associated with reactive, sensitized or overprocessed skin, and easily rinses away or wipes off, making it ideal for sensitized skin.

                        Hello Pat:

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The Clearing Skin Wash is recommended for Breakout- Prone Skin. For Rosacea and dryness we recommend using the Ultracalming Cleanser along with Ultra Calming Mist, and Barrier Repair. The Ultracalming products come in a starter kit too. Redness Relief Primer spf20, and Ultra Sensitive Tint spf30 are other products to consider for concealing and treating redness.

                        Hello There: Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Clearing Skin Wash can cause skin to break out a little, before it gets better when you first start to use it. We advise you to use the Overnight Clearing Gel at night to treat break outs and receive professional treatments from your skin therapist at Ulta.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. You may use both of these cleansers as long as your skin is not becoming dehydrated. if your skin starts to show signs of dryness we recommend alternating between these two cleansers.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend using Dermal Clay Cleanser. You may also leave this cleanser on your skin for 5-10 minutes as a mini masque to absorb even more oil. We also recommend applying a layer of Breakout Control under Active Moist in problem areas to address breakouts.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. We do not use comedogenic ingredients in any of our formulations. Clearing Skin wash will not cause congestion or breakouts.
