FREE 4 Pc Meet Deluxe Sampler Pack w/any $50 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.

              After having 3 facials and was recommended this product, I find that I like how my skin feels and also how my skin absorbs my moisturizer or lotion (sometimes I will use drugstore body lotion if I'm running). My daughter has used it a couple of times and commented how her skin feels! This is my second purchase and it seems to last because as time goes on I find I don't have use it every morning.

                  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.

                    Is this ok for 16 year old skin? I'm looking for a cleanser to deep clean and purify pores as well as prevent clogged ones. I figured because this is branded as a resurfacing cleanser it would help clear and prevent skin texture, is that the case?

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Skin Resurfacing Cleanser can help to brighten and even out skin tone. This is a very active exfoliating cleanser. We recommend starting off by using it every other day for a week or so to allow your skin time to adjust to the lactic acid.
