FREE Flawlessly Smooth Skin Set w/any $60 Dermalogica purchase

A skin-perfecting formula that provides deep-cleansing to oily, congested skin. Water-soluble Kaolin and Green clays combine with purifying extracts of Sambucus, Ivy and Lemon to remove excess oils and refine the skin's texture. Calming Cucumber and healing Sage soothe irritation, while refreshing Menthol revitalizes even the most tired skin. Contains no artificial fragrance or color. Professional recommendation advised.


How it works:

  • Naturally-absorbent, Bentonite and Kaolin clays absorb excess oil.
  • Astringent extracts of Sambucus, Ivy and Lemon remove excess oils and refine the skin's texture.
  • Menthol, Sage, Cucumber and Milk Proteins help calm the skin.

    Comments about Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser:

    I love this cleanser because it has a tingling feeling and feels so fresh. I also love that you only need a small amount so it lasts a long time because it is pricey. I use this in the morning because my nose gets oily by lunch time. It has really helped. At night I use their gentle cleanser. Love their products!

    Comments about Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser:

    It gives a nice tingly feeling and I love it! I've tried the special cleansing gel and the essential cleansing gel, but I think this one is the best. I have combination skin but also oily so this helps with that a lot. Make sure to put moisturizer on afterwords because I feel after I wash my face it can get a tight.

    Comments about Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser:

    I definitely always try to shop on a budget but I will splurge on this every time I run out. But it lasts forever. I got this for the first time in April, and I just ran out in December and had to get more. It's a great product that doesn't strip your skin of the good oils, but cleans well to where you don't get acne.

          Comments about Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser:

          I only leave reviews for products I am fully committed to and have used for quite some time. I have had this cleanser for over two years and it is the best cleanser I have ever used. I have found that clay-based products are the best for balancing oily skin, and this is by far the best. I use it in conjunction with Dermalogica's Pre-Cleanse, which removes my makeup, and my Clarisonic. The smell is uplifting, it tightens pores, and manages oil production without over-drying. A friend once mocked me for spending so much on a facewash, then she tried it. She immediately took back what she said and described the experience of using this product as "like washing your face with unicorn tears."

                    A:

                    These are both clay based products which are good for absorbing excess oil from the skin. You can use Dermal Clay Cleanser as a masque and leave it on your skin for 5-10 minutes as a masque.

                    Thank you for your inquiry. For your skin our oily kit would be best for your skin. We also recommend using Clearing Mattifier as a treatment to reduce pore size. It is important to use Skin Refining Masque 2-3 times a week, exfoliate regularly and use Clearing Mattifier daily.

                    Thank you for your inquiry. Dermal Clay Cleanser can be used twice a day to help balance oily skin. If you are looking for a cleanser to remove eye make up and cleanse skin daily, Special Cleansing Gel may be a better choice. Special Cleansing Gel is a foaming gel cleanser that can be used on the eye area to remove make up.

                    A:

                    The best deep cleanser for your skin at the end of the day is PreCleanse. This is a water soluble oil based cleanser that is used before your normal cleanser. The lightweight oils will penetrate into your follicles and break down any surface dirt, makeup, sunscreen or sebum that can clog pores. From what you have told us, Special Cleansing Gel would be the correct cleanser for you to use morning and night as your normal cleanser. Special Cleansing Gel is a foaming gel cleanser with Balm Mint and Lavender to help hydrate and balance combination skin. To prevent blackheads, exfoliate with Daily Microfoliant 3-4 times a week and use Skin Refining Masque 2-3 times a week. Follow with MultiActive Toner and Skin Smoothing Cream. We hope this helps!
