Most Helpful Positive Review love it
I don't normally write reviews because I never feel the need to.. with that being said I am a 16 year old girl with moderate acne and my mom bought me the clear start sample kit and I noticed results within 3 days. It was awesome so we bought the bigger bottles and I am so happy with the way my face, chest and back have cleared up! I would recommend this to everyone!
Most Helpful Critical Review Wanted to love this!
I really wanted to love this, and it felt great on my skin! No new acne and my skin felt soft and smooth. Unfortunately, however, I believe I'm allergic to one of the main ingredients: Cocamidopropyl Betaine. I did a lot (I mean a LOT) of research on all the products I was using and what ingredients were in them, and I had suspicions it was this cleanser that was causing the dermatitis around my nose and chin. The area became very tender and stung. Apparently the Cocamidopropyl Betaine ingredient often causes cases of dermatitis on people with sensitive skin. I wanted to try the calming cleanser or the adult clearing wash but they have gluten in it and I'm celiac so I can't try those. I love all my other dermalogica products, unfortunately this one just didn't work for me. I'll keep trying! Definitely try this cleanser but be on the lookout for signs of irritation.

This face wash helps clear up acne on my face and neck. I use it in the shower. It doesn't dry me out. It doesn't smell weird or burn. It's gentle, lathers nicely. I have sensitive skin but had some break outs because of wearing a mask.
Kyra from New York
This product has no artificial coloring like the Mario badasceu face was I used to use, I use the Dermalogica microfoliant, then this face wash, then a Tula dual phase pad to get rid of dead skin and follow it up with thayers witch hazel rose water and finally mostuirizer by purity, although when I'm lazy I use only this face wash and it still does the trick.
On my second bottle

I'm sensitive/dry skin. I'm lucky I do not get much bad breakouts now (I'm 23). I love this line of Dermalogica because it is soo affordable but the magic is still there. This along with the spot treatment product keeps my skin clear ❤
Not for Sensitive Skin!!
Kerem from New Jersey
It made my skin feel super soft but it caused itchy bumps on my chin & cheeks. The bumps itch for days and leave a scar. I did see an improvement on the breakouts on my forehead but the reaction it gives me is not worth the hassle.
Alyssa from Texas
I wanted to love this product. I really did. I don't normally write reviews but I was compelled to after seeing the horrific results. I ordered this product for my 16 yr. old brother because I've used other products from dermalogica and thought this would work for his skin. He didn't have bad acne but would get a few pimples here and there. However, after about 2 weeks of using the product, I noticed his skin worsened. My brother completely broke out all over his forehead. He went from having 4 pimples to have a red forehead completely covered in acne. I was embarrassed to have recommended this product and felt so bad because I bought my brother this produce and it worsened his acne. He did not change his workout or eating habits, so there could not be any outside variables that made him breakout. I would NOT recommend this product. This product is specifically to reduce acne and it did just the opposite. I am SO disappointed.
Adri from California LA
I used this every day and it's great I feel my skin very clean and It really has helped out my acne.
Valerie from TX
I purchased this for my teenager son and this has helped maintain clear skin!
This is nice!
a24ut from Tallahassee, FL
I enjoy this product. It has really helped me in the mornings. I use the strong acne solution Dermalogica cleanser at night. That cleanser is so expensive. This seems like a nice alternative that still helps fight acne but won't break the bank! I have turned a lot of my cystic acne-proned girlfriends onto this and it is helping!
I am so glad I have found Dermalogica.
Lana from Minnesota
Nice lather, bought for summer as I tend to get more oily and breakout more frequently with the warmer temps.
Definitely buying again
Meaghan from South Dakota
I use this every morning and every night
90% sure i wouldn't buy this product again

Best stuff for Acne and Breakouts
Andrea from Chicago
I've been using these products since I was a freshman in High School, works like a charm every time I use it. I'm now a sophomore in college and recently started using them again. The only reason why I stopped buying them was because they were a little bit expensive for me but It's totally worth the money. Buy the foaming wash and Toner, you'll see results in two or three days.
FOR THOSE WITH CYSTIC ACNE
Cystic Acne Sufferer from Richland, WA
I'm leaving this review because I've seen so many people who need help finding a system that works for them and I finally found something that works for me and thought I should share it.
First and foremost, if you've never used a super high quality skin line, be prepared for your skin to purge before your skin becomes amazing. It doesn't happen over night for most people. This happens even with professional skin lotions and treatments like Acutane because it's pulling out all the gross stuff from your skin out. You'll have acne for a week or two, then you'll see results. But if your skin starts to burn and get flaky, stop using that product.
Okay, so I have tried so many things over the years for cystic acne and have not had much luck finding something that really works. I was on Acutane a few years ago and it was awful so I had to stop. After my skin stopped being so sensitive from using it, I started to just deal with the acne and try some brands to see what happens but nothing ever really helped for very long.
I use Dermalogica's sport sunscreen and it's amazing and the only sunscreen to not block my pores. My skin is combo, but gets oily quickly especially during the summer. I try and use natural products as much as possible from other brands and I've tried African black soap, but even those have clogged my pores and hurt my sensitive skin.
I finally tried this face wash and it's only been about 3 weeks and I can tell the difference already I wish I could upload a picture but it's been an incredible change. My big cystic acne spots are almost completely gone and even my dark spots seem to be going away and I'm positive it's from using this face wash.
I ordered their fizzy blackhead wash a little but afterwards and I feel like that's helped a bit too.
I no longer use moisturizers because I feel like it's just a little too much for my skin and have noticed I get more acne overall when I moisturize my skin when it's not super dry like in winter.
I do use a vitamin C serum from Cerave after I wash my face just so it's somewhat moisturized but it's super light and your face might feel slightly dry if you're not used to not using moisturizer, but it's helped me a ton to stop getting so many breakouts. I've been using this serum for a couple months and it's been helping with dark spots from acne, but now I use it after using this face wash and it's the perfect amount of moisture.
I use this morning and night, sometimes in the evening if I've been outside a lot.
So overall, if you have cystic acne, give this a try!
Use this face wash and the Cerave serum and I hope it works as well for you as it has for me. I also use a pink drying lotion from Mario B. for new or stubborn acne, but I almost don't have to use it ever because my skin has been so tame from using this face wash.
This is the absolute best

Breakout clearing foaming wash helps me with my acnes in the nose area.
I love it!
Jodi from Papillion, NE
I've had issues with break outs for a long time and they're annoying especially being over 30. But I have used this now for a week and I haven't seen my skin this clear before.
I would by this product again and again.
Samm from New Mexico
I use a spin brush to wash my face with it. It helps even better!
We are scheduled for regular shipments,.
Krista from Davis, ca
My teens use it daily and think it helps prevent acne.
Would but again
Bb from Tennessee
Apply to dry skin massage on to faces focus on the trouble areas doing small circles then use warm water on hands and apply to product on your face. It will then foam up. I use the precleanse first then this product followed by the daily micro scrub. I never had acne as a teenager I unfortunately got adult onset acne and this routine has been the only thing that has help.
My favorite face wash
Shann from Galloway, New Jersey
I have been using this for over two years now and I cannot get enough of it. I have sensitive skin and this does NOT irritate it at all. I still get common pimples most likely from wearing make up a lot, however, this product has reduced my acne BY FAR. I never have to use more than a dime size every time I wash my face.
emma from pennsylvania
love this it changed my skin completely and took away most of my breakouts
YES YES YES
