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

A soap-free, foaming gel designed to thoroughly remove impurities without disturbing the skin's natural moisture balance. Calming Balm Mint and Lavender extracts soothe the skin, while natural Quillaja Saponaria gently foams away toxins and deep-cleanses debris. Contains no artificial fragrance or color. Professional recommendation advised.

How it works:

  • Naturally-foaming Quillaja Saponaria removes impurities and excess oils.
  • Skin-smoothing Balm Mint cools and calms the skin.
  • Purifying Lavander Extract assists in cleansing.


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

                  This is the best cleanser I've ever used. Hands down. I tried this as a free sample and fell in love. I have sensitive, dry skin, so finding a makeup remover/cleanser perfect for me is hard to do. This leaves my skin so soft and clean feeling and removes my makeup so effortlessly.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. Special Cleansing Gel will help to balance combination skin and address dehydration. Follow with MultiActive Toner and Skin Smoothing Cream for best results. Exfoliating regularly with Daily Microfoliant will allow your products to work better and will help to balance oil production.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, Special Cleansing Gel can be used on the eye area to remove eye make up. When cleansing skin you can lather Special Cleansing Gel and bring it right over the ye area for one easy make up removing cleanse.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. We do recommend that you do a double cleanse morning and night. Special Cleansing Gel can be used for all four cleanses or you can use Per Cleanse as your first cleanse to help remove stubborn dirt and make up.

                          Special Cleansing Gel is a foaming gel cleanser for all skin types. It will not help with hyper pigmentation. We do however, have a brightening system called Power Bright that will target uneven skin tone. This is a 3 product system that is used twice a day for 8 weeks for full results. You can enhance your results by using these other brightening products;
                          Daily Microfolaint
                          Skin Resurfacing Cleanser
                          MultiVitamin Power Recovery Masque.
