    Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

    This is the best cleanser on the market. I am a licensed skin therapist with Ulta and I can tell you firsthand there's a reason we strictly use Dermalogica in the salon! This cleanser will last you forever. I use mine once a day (I don't 'cleanse' in the mornings, just a rinse) and my bottle has lasted me about four months and I'm still using it. A little bit goes a loooong way and if you feel like you may need more just add a little bit of water. Great product for an even better value!

    Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

    I have tried every face wash there is. I have oily combo skin. I wear makeup 5 days a week for work. 5 months ago my face broke out like crazy and I finally decided to give this stuff a try. I got the starter pack at first to see if I'd like it. my skin is sensitive. after a month of using it my face was completely clear and has stayed that way since using it. in the AM I use the special cleansing face wash. at night I use the precleanse (if I used makeup during the day) then follow up using my clarisonic with the special cleansing face wash. I use the active lotion AM and PM. seriously guys this is worth it!! holy grail product.

        Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

        I use this product daily as a cleanser to wash my face in the morning and in the evening when I am removing my make-up. It is light weight and has a soft mild scent. Skin feels clean after use and does not feel oily. For years I had been struggling with hormonal acne in the t-zone and once I started using this line of product I cleared up. I'm 44 and often mistaken as being in my early 20's. Always being complimented on my skin. Can't get better than this.

          Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

          I'm a no daily make-up wearing gal. I use Dermalogica everytime I wash my face, with or without make-up. I can wash anytime as often I like. No repeat steps or follow up needed. But they have several types of skin scare products you can use. It has always left my face feeling soft with no residue. You don't need much and it feels thin and light. It lasts for months and they don't test on animals

                  Comments about Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel:

                  Since I started using Dermalogica two years ago, I've had many compliments on my skin. I love that with the Special Cleanser, a little goes a long way. I've tried other skin care cleansers and my skin cannot adjust. Now that I'm older, I've learned that paying a little extra for skin care is worth it. I'm allergic to strong scents and Dermalogica products have little to none. You will love how clean your face feels with this cleanser, it's worth every penny you spend. If I had to guess, I'd say the bottle lasts approx 3 months. I love the lightweight feel of these products too!

                        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
