A skin-perfecting formula that provides deep-cleansing to oily, congested skin. Water-soluble Kaolin and Green clays combine with purifying extracts of Sambucus, Ivy and Lemon to remove excess oils and refine the skin's texture. Calming Cucumber and healing Sage soothe irritation, while refreshing Menthol revitalizes even the most tired skin. Contains no artificial fragrance or color. Professional recommendation advised.


How it works:

  • Naturally-absorbent, Bentonite and Kaolin clays absorb excess oil.
  • Astringent extracts of Sambucus, Ivy and Lemon remove excess oils and refine the skin's texture.
  • Menthol, Sage, Cucumber and Milk Proteins help calm the skin.

    Comments about Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser:

    I have extremely oily skin. I don't know if I've got an extreme bout of luck going on or if this really has cleared my skin up but I haven't had a breakout since I started using this 2 months ago. I do use a moisturizer afterwards on my non-oily areas. I use a benzoyl peroxide face wash and then this with my clairsonic and my skin looks and feels amazing. The tingly feeling makes me feel super clean. Wouldn't recommend for dry skin.

    Comments about Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser:

    This cleanser is awesome if you have oily skin. I bought the oily skin kit about a month ago and fell in love with the products. I always take off my makeup at night and then use the face cleanser. It makes our face feel cool and super clean. It does help with oily, sensitive skin. I have very sensitive skin that is adult acne prone and my face is also allergic to fragrance. I would suggest this to anyone with oily skin that wants a good clean feeling.

                Comments about Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser:

                I was recommended this cleanser by an esthetician 14 years ago. Dermalogica is still a great professional brand. I've strayed away and tried other cleansers but this really sucks out dirt and oil. It's cooling and calming. You do need a precleanse if you wear make up.

                  I absolutely LOVE this cleanser! My face is oily/combination and this cleanser does the job perfectly. It purifies and get deep down in my pores, also has a nice cooling sensation. It leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed every time. I usually buy the smaller size bottle and it lasts me at least 6 months; a little goes a long way!

                  About 12 years ago I got a facial and the Tech mixed the special cleansing gel and the dermal clay cleanser since I had combination skin but a little more oily than dry. I have used both since that day. I love the way my face feels after cleansing with it morning and night.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Dermal Clay Cleanser can be used morning and night for oily skin or once a day for normal to oily skin. You can also leave Dermal Clay Cleanser on your skin for 5-10 minutes as a masque 2-3 times a week. For maximum benefit use as a masque after exfoliating.

                    I have excessively oily, somewhat blemish-prone skin with some blackheads and a ton of congested pores. I want to try this brand, but don't know where to start.

                      Hello Ebie,

                      From what you have told us Dermal Clay Cleanser is a good choice for your skin. This cleanser will absorb excess oil and can be used as a masque. Several times a week leave Dermal Clay Cleanser on you skin for 5-10 minutes to maximize oil absorbing properties.

                    I am looking for a deep cleanser to use at night. I have dry skin in the winter months and oily in the summer. My skin is sensitive and blackheads seem to be my main issue in my t zone. I also do get some breakouts. Typically the breakouts are hormonal related. Is this appropriate for me to use? If not, can you suggest one ( dermalogica or another brand)?

                      A:

                      The best deep cleanser for your skin at the end of the day is PreCleanse. This is a water soluble oil based cleanser that is used before your normal cleanser. The lightweight oils will penetrate into your follicles and break down any surface dirt, makeup, sunscreen or sebum that can clog pores. From what you have told us, Special Cleansing Gel would be the correct cleanser for you to use morning and night as your normal cleanser. Special Cleansing Gel is a foaming gel cleanser with Balm Mint and Lavender to help hydrate and balance combination skin. To prevent blackheads, exfoliate with Daily Microfoliant 3-4 times a week and use Skin Refining Masque 2-3 times a week. Follow with MultiActive Toner and Skin Smoothing Cream. We hope this helps!
