      Comments about Dermalogica Travel Size Esssential Cleansing Solution:

      I am wondering if this works for super dry skin types because this did not work for me. I have dry skin and was thinking this would be great, but it just didn't seem to cleanse. After I rinsed I felt a heavy residue on my face and my very light makeup was still there. It was also very hard to spread and as I tried to cleanse my face my skin became more irritated.That combined with the lasting residue and not feeling clean just didn't do it for me.

        It gets my skin very clean without drying it.

                I have used this product for years and I love it! I have combination skin with a moderately oily t-zone and dry cheeks. I only use this product on my cheeks since it's designed to address dryness.

                Only a small pea amount is necessary to clean both of my cheeks. I use it in the morning to gently wash away my moisturizer from overnight. And once again at night as a gentle second cleanse after I use an oil-based make-up remover. Great product!

                          Which Dermalogica cleansers are safe to use for daily cleansing all over the face, including the eye area (not necessarily to remove makeup)? I am looking for something that would be used after the PreCleanse but before the Resurfacing cleanser.
