FREE Age Smart Moisturizer Set w/any $50 Dermalogica purchase

A milky cleanser for drier skin conditions to gently lift impurities and remove make-up. Water-soluble, this soothing emulsion rinses off easily, leaving the skin refreshingly clean, soft and supple. Contains no artificial fragrance or color. Professional recommendation advised.

How it works:

  • Natural Safflower Oil softens and conditions skin.
  • Antioxidant Vitamins E and C smooth and condition the skin.
  • Mild astringents, extracts of Rosemary and Lemon, refresh tired skin.

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

              I love this cleanser so much. I bought it first about a year ago when I finally figured out the transition from teenage years into my rwenties left my skin so dry! A after using this and other dermalogica products for a while my skin is hydrated, soft, and clear. I only ever get a small hormonal breakout or two a month and I'm good the rest of the month. If you're thinking of getting this, you should! You will not regret buying this!

              Comments about Dermalogica Essential Cleansing Solution:

              I have acne prone, so I was a little apprehensive about using a rinse containing oils. Surprisingly, I've been using this for a week and my complexion looks much better. I haven't had a break out. I did using an astringent a few days after using this and was a bit grossed out when I saw the amount of make-up on the cotton. I even use Dermalogica make-up remover before washing my face but I guess neither that nor this rinse really get it my face clean. I am coming to the conclusion that my face doesn't have to be perfectly clean every night. It's more important that it's balanced.

                This is an expensive product if you're one budget but a little goes a long way. Nothing has ever cleaned my skin so well and it doesn't overdry. My skin is flawless after one week of this skincare line. My fave cleanser ever.

                  I've always had acne prone/ oily skin. I've went through tons of face products, without good results. Finally, i came into ulta and recieve a facial consultation and they recommended me using this product along with others. Within the first week i could notice a huge differnce, and others could too. This face wash hydrating but doesn't cause oily skin and doesn't clog pores. It is truly amaizng. I use this product every morning and every night. The only down fall about any dermalogica products is the high price, but you really pay for what you get! My first bottle of face cleanser lasted me a year.

                  I have never found a product that has never effected my face until I used this. A small bottle came with my Mia that was given to me for a gift. I was cautious about using it but after a few uses my face looked great!

                    Is this the Dermalogica face cleaner that looks and feels like it has clay in it? Not a clay mask, but an actual clay cleanser.

                      A:

                      Thank you for your inquiry. This cleanser is a milky creamy consistency. The product you are referring to Dermal Clay Cleanser which is for oily skin. Essential Cleansing Solution is for dry skin, cannot be used as a masque and is removed with water.

                  • 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.
