    Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

    This is my go-to face wash. I try other brands here and there but always come back to Dermalogica. I feel like my money goes further with this product compared to others and I love a sudsy face wash that makes me feel like it's really cleansing my skin.

    amazing cleanser!!!

    Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

    I have been struggling with acne since I turned 19, I will be turning 21 next month! And let me tell you, I have tried everything from the new proactive system to generic store brands to expensive ace washes!! I've tried toners, astringents and nothing seemed to work! One day I went to Ulta for the heck of it to buy some foundation to cover up my pigmentation and awfully dehydrated skin, when a employee asked me if I needed assistance. I happened to walk by the face washes and I asked what product is best for dry skin yet oily, she replied she can give me a free face map to tell me what products would be best for my skin. I ended up with combination skin and she recommended this face wash, I got the smaller Bottle. After 3 days my skin is glowing!!! I went to work and my co worker said my skin looked flawless and amazing! I was in utter shock, I'm so thankful I found this! Sorry for all the exclamation points but having great skin again is making me happy.

          Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

          First of all, by "messy", I mean that it's kind of runny and you need to be attentive about keeping it in your hands before you get it to your face! But once you get it there, it's excellent. I'm a "foaming facial cleanser" kind of gal and was surprised how much I like the product, as it has very little foaming power. I use this AFTER removing my makeup with the Pre-Cleanse liquid. My skin feels soft and smooth and there is never makeup residue on my towel! There is relatively no fragrance, which works for me because I am allergic to everything! There is a slight odor, but it dissipates quickly and doesn't linger on the face.

              Just it daily. It's a bit more than what I use to spend on product, BUT. I spent way more trying other less expensive items and they were NOT guaranteed.

                        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
