FREE 3-pc Fresh & Flawless Set w/ any $60 Dermalogica purchase

A highly active lactic acid concentrate that retexturizes skin suffering from visible signs of aging by removing dulling surface debris and accelerating cell renewal. Antioxidant vitamin E conditions and enhances softness while fortifying the skin¿s natural moisture barrier, while soothing rose flower oil calms skin sensitivity. Daily use of this silky cleanser dramatically improves skin texture and properly prepares for maximum penetration of AGE Smart¿ products. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

How it works:

  • Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates surface cells leaving a smoother, polished surface that is receptive to subsequent active ingredients. Also helps hydrate and brighten.
  • Tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E) is an antioxidant that conditions and enhances skin softness while fortifying skin's natural moisture barrier.
  • Soothing rose flower oil calms skin sensitivity.


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

Following the application of PreCleanse, lightly lather in hands and apply to damp face and throat morning and evening, massaging with light, upward strokes for at least 30 seconds, avoiding the eye area. Reduce to one use per day if any sensitivity develops. Follow with Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF30 when used in the morning.

    This is the best cleanser for combination, oily and acne prone skin. I have been using this product for 3 years, no oil during the day and no breakouts. My son uses this as well, and has not had breakouts since using this cleanser. Vegan and cruelty free!

      I have been using this product for a couple of years and really like it. I use it in the shower in the mornings twice a week. It is emollient and feels like it is doing more moisturizing and conditioning to my facial skin than just cleansing it.

          After using the pre-cleanse I follow up with the Skin Resurfacing Cleanser. Being new to the product I was a little worried that my for head, chin, nose started to flake (bad)..its what it is suppose to do to shed off the old dead skin. Your face will adjust so don't worry just moisture in those areas a little more.

                I have used a variety of resurfacing products that haven't dried me out, but using this one 3 times one week and then only 1 time the next week was enough to completely dry out my skin. Instead of making my skin better it gave me texture and patchiness.

                    This product is absolutely insane!! As someone who has suffered from acne for as long as I can remember this product is a miracle only after 2 uses I saw HUGE improvements. My skin looked brighter, moisturized, cleaner and just plain happy!! I'm on my 3rd bottle and still just as happy. I can't say enough good things.

If you are looking for an all in one cleanser please use Special Cleansing Gel or Ultra Calming Cleanser.
