Ask a Question

A gentle, non-abrasive exfoliation treatment to thoroughly remove dulling surface debris, dramatically improving skin texture. Alpha hydroxy Lactic Acid, beta hydroxy Salicylic Acid and natural fruit enzymes detach dead skin cells, helping to stimulate skin renewal. Conditioning botanical extracts and humectants soothe the skin and combat dryness. Fragrance free. Professional recommendation advised.

How it works:

  • Lactic and Salicy lic acids slough off dead skin cells, speeding cell renewal.
  • Sulfur aids in cell renewal while Papain and Bromelain enzymes digest excess surface cells.
  • Extracts of Lavender, Aloe Vera and Coneflower help reduce sensitivity and soothe skin.


We recommend that first-time Dermalogica users visit an authorized skin treatment professional for a client consultation in an ULTA store.

        Comments about Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant:

        During one of my Dermalogica skin treatments I inquired about a good exfoliant. I am having issues with the mid 30's trouble-some hormonal acne that is very stubborn and am very hesitant to use exfoliators with the fear of spreading or worsening the inflammation. She recommended the Gentle Cream Exfoliant and I love it. There is no grit to it what-so-ever, so it is not harsh or abrasive on the skin. But is does a wonderful job of removing excess dry skin and brightening the skin. I'm so happy I tried it!

        Comments about Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant:

        This is the very first Dremalogica product I tried. I saw a review on UTube and decided to try it. It has been fantastic and I didn't even know how badly I needed exfoliation until I used it. All the rough skin around my chin and mouth just went away. I use it several times a week with no irritation and I continue to see improvement and really glowing skin. I have sensitive skin but have no problem at all with this mask. I use after cleansing and leave on 15 minutes. I will always use this great product! Please don't ever discontinue or change it...it's that good!

          What is the difference between this product and your Daily Microfoliant?

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            Thank you for your inquiry. Daily Microfoliant is a gentle enzyme exfoliant that is gentle enough to be used everyday and will help to brighten your skin. Gentle Cream Exfoliant is an exfoliating masque that is used 2-3 times a week for 10 minutes and removed with water. Follow with toner and moisturizer.

            A:

            Thank you for your inquiry. The exact percentages are proprietary information, however they are safe to use 2-3 times a week. This masque is not hydrating, it is exfoliating and brightening.

            A:

            For those with sensitive skin, we recommend either the Gentle Cream Exfoliant or the Daily Microfoliant:
            http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=prod2152621

            Either will help to eliminate pore-clogging debris, which will help pores appear smaller. Both are suitable for dry skin types, and both encourage cell renewal to help minimize the signs of aging.
