I get facials done at Ulta. I was told to try this product for my occasional break outs. Every thing is decent except for the smell. I would recommend this product if the person didn't mind the smell.

      Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash:

      I use my Dermalogica face wash twice a day morning and night. In the morning I take a pea size amount and apply it with my fingers, and in the evening I put a tiny bit on my soft bristle Clarisonic brush, lather it up with my finger first and then use it as makeup remover. The skin feels absolutely great! Clean, fresh and absolutely NOT dry or flaky unlike what your regular drug store acne product would do. Even in the winter months when the air is so dry from the heaters I may get away with using moisturizer once a day

        Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash:

        I really love this face soap. I do recommend if you use a lot of makeup use another soap to wash it off then use this. It saves a lot of the product and since it's expensive that's a plus. My skin looks better. I don't have a lot of break outs with this product.

          Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash:

          This has seriously done wonders for my skin. I've had the 16 Oz. bottle for over 4 months, I use it at night with my clarisonic and my skin has never looked better. Pricey, but totally worth it especially since it has lasted so long.

            Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash:

            I used this product for about a month before I decided that it was not working for me. I didn't want to dismiss it too soon before giving it a fair chance. I have very oily skin and this product was drying out my skin. I was using it in the morning and at night. So it's possible that it may have worked better if only using it once a day. Luckily, I purchased the trial size cleanser before realizing that it wasn't going to work for me. I decided to try the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel instead and I am happier with it. I am still getting some acne, but it's not as bad.

            Use every day morning and night. Gets rid of all make up and impurities, Unclogs pores. Best used continuously to prevent and treat breakouts. Can be slightly drying and it is pricey. Shouldn't use if you have sensitive or dry skin.

                    My teenage son has suffered with acne since he was 12. I was given a sample to try and it worked great! He had a facial using this product from a professional who recommended the product. Since....his face has been clearing up. This by far is cheaper and better than all the prescription medication from the dermatologist. As long as he uses it...his face stays acne free. Thankful mom.

                      I have rosacea on my nose and inner cheek area but I break out a lot on my chin/ jaw line. Will this irritate my rosacea? I dont want to make it worse. I am contemplating trying this and the Ultra Calming cleanser. Thoughts??

                        A:

                        For those with rosacea, we always suggest consulting your physician and/or conducting a patch test on a discreet area of skin prior to using as directed. The active ingredient is Salicylic Acid (0.5%); if you have any sensitivity or an allergy to this ingredient, please consult your physician prior to use.

                        Ultracalming Cleanser (Item #: 2220560) is specially formulated for those with sensitive skin, though for those with rosacea, we do still recommend consulting your physician and/or conducting a patch test. Ultracalming Cleanser helps combat skin sensitivity caused by exposure to pollution, harsh climate, stress, hormonal imbalance, irritating cosmetic products and other environmental influences, and it contains no artificial fragrance or color:

                        A:

                        If you are experiencing extremely sensitive skin, then the best product to use for cleansing would be Ultra Calming Cleanser:

                        If the skin concern is oily/combination, then Clearing Skin Wash (this product) is a better recommendation and can be used twice daily.

                        A:

                        Because this cleanser features exfoliating properties, we do not recommend using it to remove eye makeup, though it can certainly be used to remove face makeup. Dermalogica PreCleanse is ideal to use prior to cleansing to remove all traces of face and eye makeup for a deeper, more thorough cleanse:

                        This cleanser features a gel consistency that lathers to a foam. It can certainly be used with the Mia 2 and other Clarisonic facial cleansing devices.
