FREE Fall Skin Renewal 3 Pc Set w/any $65 Dermalogica purchase

A gentle, non-abrasive exfoliation treatment to thoroughly remove dulling surface debris, dramatically improving skin texture. Alpha hydroxy Lactic Acid, beta hydroxy Salicylic Acid and natural fruit enzymes detach dead skin cells, helping to stimulate skin renewal. Conditioning botanical extracts and humectants soothe the skin and combat dryness. Fragrance free. Professional recommendation advised.

How it works:

  • Lactic and Salicy lic acids slough off dead skin cells, speeding cell renewal.
  • Sulfur aids in cell renewal while Papain and Bromelain enzymes digest excess surface cells.
  • Extracts of Lavender, Aloe Vera and Coneflower help reduce sensitivity and soothe skin.


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

Great Exfoliant!

By Nikki

    Comments about Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant:

    During one of my Dermalogica skin treatments I inquired about a good exfoliant. I am having issues with the mid 30's trouble-some hormonal acne that is very stubborn and am very hesitant to use exfoliators with the fear of spreading or worsening the inflammation. She recommended the Gentle Cream Exfoliant and I love it. There is no grit to it what-so-ever, so it is not harsh or abrasive on the skin. But is does a wonderful job of removing excess dry skin and brightening the skin. I'm so happy I tried it!

        Comments about Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant:

        I'm approaching 40 and I've noticed that my skin is slow to shed the dry bits so this really helps. I follow this mask with the hydrating mask by Dermalogica which rehydrates and calms skin back down. I gave a tube of this to my mom who is 68 and she said she's in love with how soft this makes her skin.

          I use this product about every other day. it recommends a couple days a week but I have such bad combination skin that if I don't exfoliate more often my makeup gets flaky. I love this product so much, it definitely is a staple in my weekly face care routine.

            Comments about Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant:

            Lets start off by saying I don't believe in harsh exfoliators like the ones you by at the drug store with the beads in them where it feels like you are scratching your skin. This is absolutely the perfect product for me. It's not harsh, no beads, doesn't feel like I am scratching my skin off. I put the cream on, massage it into my skin and let it sit for 15-30 minutes. There is a little bit of a tingle when you are applying it, please don't let that scare you. I wash this off with luke warm water and give my face another massage while doing so. After my skin is so so so so soft, BABY SOFT. It helps make the skin smooth it's very easy to apply makeup after. I use this two sometimes three times a week to get rid of the dead skin. I really hope Dermalogica never gets rid of this product. I will use it for LIFE!

              Comments about Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant:

              I can only leave this on for 5-8 minutes and it makes my face feel "raw" and sensitive for several days afterward. I follow either the moisture mask and it does make my face feel very smooth and soft but a little irritated. I do not have sensitive skin in regards to other products. I would never use this more than twice a month because of the irritation it created. But, there was no visible irritation.

                        This product is a smooth, gel-like texture that exfoliates gently by using lactic acid. Unfortunately for me, my skin can not handle standard exfoliation and gets irritated by anything grainy. I also have translucent skin so the capillaries around my nose are very visible, so I have to be careful how I exfoliate. This is the only thing that works for me and my skin feels silky and smooth immediately! Makes for easy makeup application. Highly recommend!

                            Thank you for your inquiry. Daily Microfoliant is a gentle enzyme exfoliant that is gentle enough to be used everyday and will help to brighten your skin. Gentle Cream Exfoliant is an exfoliating masque that is used 2-3 times a week for 10 minutes and removed with water. Follow with toner and moisturizer.

                            Thank you for your inquiry. You should cleanse your skin before using this product. Cleansing your skin will remove dirt, oil and make up and will allow your exfolaint to work better. Leave Gentle Cream Exfoliant on your skin for 10 min and remove with water, follow with toner and moisturizer.

                            For those with sensitive skin, we recommend either the Gentle Cream Exfoliant or the Daily Microfoliant:
                            http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=prod2152621

                            Either will help to eliminate pore-clogging debris, which will help pores appear smaller. Both are suitable for dry skin types, and both encourage cell renewal to help minimize the signs of aging.
