Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE IT!
I use this product every morning and night with my Clarisonic Mia. A little goes a long way and the results are amazing. It is great for removing dirt, sebum, makeup, and anything else that may be clogged in your pores. It leaves my skin feeling super clean, smooth, and refreshed! Try it with the Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream and you have a duo that is unstoppable in its fight for your skin's health. Buy it, you won't regret it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Sneaky Formula Change!
I have been a loyal fan on the Special Cleansing Gel for 2 years. I could not find any other in comparison.It cleansed,was non drying, and left no residue. I purchased my usual 8.4oz bottle and when I got home and used it the first thing I noticed was the strong lemony smell. One of the reason I was such a fan is because it was fragrance free! I have very sensitive skin and I have to be very careful what I use. After two days of using it my skin looked like a wreck. It burned and seemed even more sensitive. I had a travel size of the original formula (the ingredients listed on this website) and was able to compare the ingredients to the bottle I just bought(not the ingredients listed on this website). Seven ingredients were added and many of them I could not even pronounce! One was linalool which is a skin allergen for some people. I returned the new bottle and a very nice Ulta salesperson helped me search for the last old formula in their stock. It won't last long so I am on the search for a new cleanser! Very dissapointing that Dermalogica changed it. As a consumer, I can only come to the conclusion that it was to cut cost. If you do buy a bottle check and make sure the ingredients are the ones listed on this website.

Turned around adult acne
Laura C from Houston, TX
In my early 40's, I was struggling with adult acne and also had sensitive skin. My aesthetician recommended this, and it turned my world around. It helped the acne go away, and it helped my skin look better overall.
SO Bummed - broke me out!
Lauren the Beauty Researcher from Beverly Hills, CA
I research all of my products before I buy them. I'm talking watching multiple reviews, looking at the ingredients list, comparing it with products that have worked for me before.
This products expensive and totally broke me out. I'm so disappointed, one, for how much money I spent but also for the wake of destruction it left my skin in. I'm talking little bumps under the surface all over my face. So disappointed.
Grandma7 from Bolingbrook, IL
I love Dermalogica products. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed. And love their face cream. Healthy line with no over powering scent.
Perfect face wash for all skin types
Lyn from MA
Best face wash I've used! Goes on and rinses off very nicely. Doesn't over dry my skin. Very general and powerful
This is my go to face wash!
Erika from Lake forest CA
This product is great to use after the pre-cleanse as it is sensitive enough for my skin, but washes away excess makeup or buildup from the day. This product doesn't strip your skin so it's nice to use daily.
Is this dish soap?
Ashley G. from Fresno CA
I am disappointed beyond belief about this face wash. I bought this on their official website a while ago and I got to using it the last three days and all I can say is wow. I feel like I am washing my face with dish soap. It does a terrible job washing off makeup. It took three tries to take off my mascara. Don't waste your money. Just get yourself Dawn if you decide to use this.
FairBear from Long Beach
Based on my skincare needs I was recommended this product by a well known Beverly Hills Dermatologist basic cleanser but soap free so no dryness use a drop and some water and work into a lather with fingertips. At first I was using to much and noticed I had some residue.
The Best Cleanser E V E R!
Samara from Massachusetts
I'm a makeup artist and to me having clear skin is super important when doing other peoples makeup. I have been using this stuff for years and it works amazing. Takes all my makeup off and leaves my skin refreshed. I have nothing bad to say about this. I don't think I'll ever stop buying this.
Cute Carol from Davis
I have been using this product for many years. It makes my skin feel clean without drying it out. It seems expensive, however a little goes a long way. The largest bottle will last me about a year.
My usual using it since years it's perfect for combination s
Saher from Tx
Use it twice a day and follow with ur moisturizer or night care treatment
Best face wash for my sensitive acne prone skin
Sensitive skin chick 101 from Oklahoma City, OK
The only consistent thing now about my skin care has been this face wash. I have used so many in the last few years but I keep coming back to this one. For my sensitive acne prone skin, this is the best face wash I have found to keep my acne at bay. Only downside is how expensive it is but you can use samples from the Dermalogica skin bar or they give it out in sample sizes as free gifts a lot. 10/10 would recommend
My go to facial cleanser
Andi from North Carolina
This has been my go to facial cleanser for years. I can use it year round with no issues and few breakouts.
Still trying to decide...
WestSideMama from Grand Rapids, MI
Have only used this for 2 weeks so far... I love how clean my face feels after washing with it, but my face went from dry (before using this) to a little bit oily/greasy instantly. I'm not sure if it's the cleanser or the cleanser mixed with the Dermologica Smoothing Cream I'm using for a moisturizer at night. I'll take it over being super dry though...
Idontknow from West Virginia
I bought this cleanser hoping to use something that was supposed to be good for my skin. I usually don't spend this much on face washes but decided to splurge. I kept breaking out at first but kept using because I thought my skin was purging. This has made my skin so sensitive. I can't use anything without my face turning red and irritated now. I had fairly sensitive skin before but this has made it so much worse. It smells like laundry detergent. It might be good for some people's skin but for mine it was awful!
reagan from north carolina, usa
DO NOT BUY I REPEAT. This product has essential oils, and perfume which is very harsh to the skin and could cause breakouts!
I have used this face wash for years!
Noni from Laguna Woods, California
Wash my face.
love this clenser
huntie23 from michigan
i have been using this product for over a month on my combo skin. it leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated while helping with my problem areas.
Jennifer from California
This cleanser is hit or miss for me. Some days it leaves my skin feeling very stripped of its natural oils and some days it just feels okay.
But the writing on the bottle is so cheap that it started rubbing off on my hands when I picked it up. I ended up having to purposely scrub the lettering off the bottle in order to prevent accidentally getting it all over my face
Broke Me Out
Angel from Mcallen, Tx.
Was super excited to use this cleanser but it broke me out everywhere on my forehead & cheeks where my pores are at literally covered in little red dots. Only used it for 3 days. It helped control my oil along with my other products, but did cause a break out unfortunately. It was the only thing in my routine that I had changed. I know some people purge when using new items but this is too much. sorta sad about it ):
Nice but doesn't do the job
Alyse from Bristow, Virginia
This is a very clean feeling wash but it did not help me with my acne at all. For the price of this product, I personally don't think it's worth it. I don't even have that bad of acne but it definitely did not approve anything.
Best facial cleanser
Tanya from Carson, California
I've been using Dermalogica for about 10 years. It's been the best cleanser I've ever used.
The only one I use!
Yessica from Bellflower
I've been using this cleanser for the past 4 years now and I love it. It removes any build it and make up. It doesn't leave your skin feeling tight. I love the ingredients and it just works for my skin! I pair it up with the pre cleanse & it works wonders.
Miah from San Antonio
I loveeee this face wash! It keeps my face perfectly balanced without over drying it! I use it morning and night on some days and my face feels refreshed and clean
