          Comments about Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution:

          I love this whole line! My mom has been telling me about Dermalogica for a long time and I've heard rave reviews about it. I finally decided to invest in just the travel sizes of the pre cleanse, essential cleanse and the toner (which was recommended to me by an esthetician). I have dry skin on my cheeks but get oily throughout the day (with or without makeup) on my forehead, nose and chin. Which puts me in the combo skin category. I am prone to breakouts but not acne prone (there IS a difference). I noticed a difference after 1 use. My skin feels clean and looks clean. My job is makeup, that's what I do. So I wear ALOT of makeup 24/7 and this product actually seems to make my skin feel clean yet hydrated! This cleanser however isn't meant for anything beyond cleaning and hydrating. Dermalogica has specific products for acne, aging skin, dry skin, oily skin etc. I would recommend speaking with a trained professional before purchasing as they will advise you of the best skin care routine for YOU, in order to see the results you're after. As a simple cleanser though this does a phenomenal job! Love love love!

            I've been using this diligently for the past two weeks, and I have noticed an improvement in my skin tone and texture, and it has cleared up somewhat as well. This is a great morning and night cleanser. This is my first introduction to Dermalogica, and I'm really liking it so far!

                I use this product twice a day and it leaves my skin feeling clean and amazing! To remove my makeup i first use the Dermologica pre cleanse which makes it so much easier for this product to do its job. Once I'm done washing my face there is no trace of makeup left. LOVE THIS CLEANSER!!

                  Comments about Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution:

                  I use the Age Smart line. However, you can not use the cleanse/polisher on your eyes. So this is where I love this product. Gentle and hydrating for the delicate eye area.

                    • Q:

                      How does this product cleanse your skin? It's a lotion to me and I don't understand how it cleanses. Feels like I'm just rubbing lotion on my face and I don't feel like it's doing anything. Does it kill bacteria as well?

                        Hello Bre,

                        Essential Cleansing Solution is a milky creamy cleanser. This water-soluble, non-foaming formula gently lifts impurities while replenishing dry skin. This product is meant for someone with chronically dry skin. If your skin is not excessively dry it will not be a good choice for your skin and you should use Special Cleansing Gel.
