Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing for oily skin
I have been looking for a new facewash that helps with oily skin since Tula changed their formula. I decided to try this cleanser because of the charcoal and I could not be happier! This has been a game-changer for me. I have extremely oily skin - if I do my makeup in the morning before work, I usually need to dab my face by 11AM to remove excess oil. I also have uneven skin with random blotches of breakouts. Once I started using this facewash (at the same time I started using this, I switched to Mamonde Rose Water Gel Cream for a moisturizer so I credit them both) there was an immediate difference in oil production. By the end of a normal day, my skin is only kind of oily now. I was really surprised and pleased with the difference. The first time I used it, I was skeptical because my after the shower, my skin didn't feel "squeaky" clean. But I used toner to wipe over my face and there was no makeup left over. It just wasn't squeaky because it didn't strip my skin and dry it out. I will be using this facewash from now on!
Most Helpful Critical Review BRING BACK DERMAL CLAY CLEANSER, HATE THIS NEW ACTIVE CLAY!!
I've used the Dermalogica Dermal Clay cleanser for years and years now, my absolute favorite cleanser. I went into Ulta not too long ago and they were out of stock of my cleanser, but come to find out, they were permanently out of stock of my favorite cleanser, as it had been replaced with the Active Clay cleanser. I was willing to give it a try, thinking it would have to be better, like an upgrade from the previous, but I was WRONG!! I absolutely hate this Active Clay Cleanser. I'm very disappointed and Dermalogica has just lost a customer. I went on to try cleanser after cleanser, different ones by Dermalogica and also by other brands and settled on a cleanser made by Clinique that gives me the results I want. I still do not like the cleanser I'm currently using as well as the Dermal Clay, but since they discontinued this product, they lost me as a customer.

I bought this hoping it was like the old version of their clay cleanser. It's not the same. It's just OK. I think their original version cleaned better and left my skin feeling great. Like I said, this stuff is just OK.
Bring back dermal clay cleanser
Nana from West Coast
Please bring back the dermal clay cleanser! It was so good! This one doesn't compare at all!
I miss the old formula
Alexb from Atlanta Ga
This replaced the dermal clay cleanser which was the best cleanser for oily skin I have ever used.. this one does nothing for me.. please bring back the dermal clay cleanser
Please bring back the Dermal Clay Cleanser
Cory from Undisclosed
Hey, executives at Dermalogica!! This new Active Clay cleanser is AWFUL when compared to the Dermal Clay which was the most incredible face wash in history. If you all do not plan on bringing back the Dermal Clay, please give me a recommendation on a different brand that equals in comparison. I only have about 15 washes left and it makes me extremely sad to know I'll never get another bottle. Please don't ruin my life and bring it back. Send this comment to your CEO, please. Thank you.

I would have never purchased this product BUT I attended a FB LiVe Q&A and was given advice to try this product… And I absolutely love it!

My skin is looking better and better every day!
Clay cleanser smells DELICIOUS :drooling_face:
Kelly from Undisclosed
Love the smell of this cleanser! I love to mix this with the exfoliate!
Jim from Undisclosed
Having been a Dermalogica fan for nearly a decade, I was dismayed when they discontinued the Dermal Clay Cleanser. I was pointed towards the Clearing Skin Wash by a customer service representative and that caused me to have tiny breakouts all across my forehead, but I gave my skin time to adjust and nothing changed. Keep in mind, I haven't had significant acne for 7-8 years and I'm in my mid 30s. I then switched to the Active Clay Cleanser and now have large painful acne on my temples and forehead. To say that I'm extremely disappointed is a gross understatement.
Great for oily skin

Age Smart Dermal Cleanser - Feels Wonderful
Sarah from Undisclosed
I've always loved the Dermal Clay Cleanser and kind of forgot about it. I recently started seeing changes in my skin as I'm nearing 40. I tried the Dermalogica face mapping online, and it suggested I add the Age Smart Dermal Cleanser to my routine. Such a difference in just a few days. I'm so glad I incorporated this back into my skin care routine.
I took the face mapping
Sommer from Undisclosed
I took the face mapping analysis on the website and this was recommended for me. Unfortunately it made my skin superrrr oily within an hour of washing my face. I bought a second product that was recommended as well and that also is super oily. I'm definitely not using the clay cleanser again.
Highly recommend for oily skin
Emily from Michigan
This cleanser makes my skin SO soft. I have found that most cleansers that are formulated for oily skin tend to leave my skin feeling parched and tight after washing it, but not this one. I have finally found the one that works with my skin. This cleanser helps control oil without completely drying it out. I can definitely see a difference in oil production after using this cleanser for a few days. I noticed when I wake up in the morning my skin isn't covered in a sheet of oil like it normally is, because I sweat a lot when I sleep. I am so happy I decided to splurge on this! If you have oily skin, you won't regret buying this. I use this cleanser with the "Clear Start" line gel moisturizer.
It's helped my acne so
Kat from Undisclosed
It's helped my acne so much!
Beckah from Undisclosed
I have sensitive, oily skin and this cleanser calmly and effectively cleanses it LIKE NO OTHER. I cannot recommend this enough for those with similar skin types and hormonal breakout prone skin.
Wow! This is an excellent
Francisco from Undisclosed
Wow! This is an excellent daily product that I use to clean my face. Actually, use it once in the morning and then before bedtime followed with the moisturizer.
Michelle from Undisclosed
I recently purchased this product. I absolutely love it. It helped to clear up some blemishes. My husband tried it and now it's his go to cleanser. There needs to be a larger size container. Lol.
I Really Miss The Old Tingle Of The Prior Dermal Clay Cleans
Michele from Florida
I am so disappointed that Dermalogica has discontinued my favorite cleanser of all time, their Dermal Clay Cleanser. Although this new cleanser gives me similar results, I really miss the cooling, menthol refreshing effect of the old version. I will be returning the Active Clay Cleanser-- it's just simply not the same for me.
I love this product.
Britt from Chicago IL
I love this product. It has helped me so much with my skin, I have oily combination with at the time cystic acne. It has helped clear that up and I will never stop buying this product!
Excellent product. Solved my mask acne!
Ann from Chicago
Since I've been wearing a mask everyday I have been developing terrible acne-like breakouts. Nothing was working until I found this product. Within 2 days my skin significantly cleared. After a week I'm basically back to normal. I use it in the morning and night along with a little of the Age Bright Clearing Serum and the Skin Smoothing Moisturizer. I'm so happy my skin is finally fixed!
Love everything but the price 😬
Babydoll from East la
I have combination skin and I've been working on treating my large pores and texture...i was hesitant because i do get some really dry patches but the dermalogica aesthetician reassured me that it wouldn't be an issue and I'm so glad i took her advice because it's helped balance out my skin overall no more super dry or oily patches...also noticed a change in my pores and texture. Although the price point is a little high it's honestly worth it because it works
Not worth your money
Kcoke from Arizona
Did not work on my super oily skin. Not worth your money
Love this product!

It does what it's meant to do!
Alaina from Louisiana
This is hands-down the best cleanser I've ever used. My skin has never looked better. Amazing at clearing excess oil, though it doesn't dry out. I'm a Dermalogica customer for life!
