      Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

      This cleanser may not be good for people with sensitive skin. I have normal to combination skin and every time I have used it, my face has felt tight and dry. Then after about 15 minutes my face begins to sting and turns bright red. Maybe I'm allergic to one of the plant ingredients? I'm definitely returning.

      I use this product along with the multi active toner daily. Light, great for all skin types. Pricey, but I'm willing to pay for quality!

          Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

          Ever since I have been introduced to this product line, there is no looking back and I have stopped looking for anything else. I had a face full of acne and breakouts and was always on a hunt for a good cleanser and clarifier. When I tried this cleanser followed by the routine skin care suggested by Dermalogica esthetician (who did an effective face mapping too!), all my acne were gone in no time and I boast a clear and glowing skin all the time now. A little pricey but totally worth it.

            Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

            I have been using this product for the last few years and can't live without it!
            The special cleaning gel is great for people with or without acne prone skin because it gets down into the pores pulling out all the dirt without drying the skin. My face is smooth and feels terrific after using it.
            My daily showering routine consists of only using Dermalogica products because they're natural, does not dry out my skin, and my skin feels refreshed after each use.
            The only drawback with these products is the price. You do get what you pay for, but it would be nice to get coupons for the products or price breaks every once in a while.

                  Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

                  I first bought the dermalogica clearing skinwash because of break outs I was having (my skin does not normally break out the way i was this time...i have pretty "normal" skin as far as oily-dry combination goes). The clearing skinwash helped clear my skin. Because of the cold dry winter weather my skin was beginning to dry out badly so I bought the dry skin kit which included the dermalogica gel cleanser. I absolutley loved it and it has helped immenseley with my dry skin! With the wash I have also used the toner and moisturizer every day and I could not be happier with the results. Yes, this product is on the pricier side but, it is well worth it! You can't put a price on your face. You only have one! My sample sizes last for a good while. I did not want to splurge on the larger, pricier products, but it will last a long time and the results are just incredible. After purchasing this product the only disappointment you will feel is..."why didn't I try this sooner?"

                      A:

                      This product is nonabrasive and does not contain exfoliating ingredients. This product is formulated for all skin types and conditions, including aging skin. For a more targeted anti-aging cleanser, try Dermalogica AGE smart™ Skin Resurfacing Cleanser (Item #: 2152643), which contains lactic acid to gently resurface the skin and improve skin texture: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=prod2152643
