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 am a 28 year old female, and up until last year I had pretty normal skin. Never too dry and never oily.Well, last year my skin all of a sudden became VERY oily. So oily if I came down with a fever you could probably fry an egg on my forehead. Disgusting. I've never had this problem before so I ignored it and went about with my shiny, slick skin. Well, last week I decided to look into doing something about this so I went to Ulta and spoke to someone. She recommended this product and I wasn't too happy about the price but she recommended using the trial size version to see if I liked it. Today is my 4th day using it and I would say my skin has been 75% less oily than it normally is. I am so happy. While you are rubbing it on your face there is a cooling feeling that is very nice. It's like someone is rubbing menthol on your face. Once I run out of this trial size version I will definitely be going back to buy the big bottle of it. I will be buying this product from now on! So appreciative for the girl that recommended this to me!

            I work at a spa and one of the lines we carry is the Dermalogica line. I absolutely love their skin care line! I always wear makeup (especially foundation) and this cleanser unclogs my pores from the foundation. I also have oily skin and it helps with reduce the oil on my face. I would definitely recommend this!!

              I actually only tried this because I got a free sample. Much to my surprise I liked the way it made my skin feel. Several years later, I am a devoted fan. While I have tried many, many brands, this is really the only one that works for me long term and I keep coming back. It definitely refines the skin and leaves it feeling soft, it does not dry out my skin. I have far less breakout with this. Love this product.

                  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!

                  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.

                  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.

                      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!
