Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing cleanser.
I love this cleanser. I've tried a few of the other Dermalogica ones and they leave my skin feeling tight, this is the only one that leaves my skin feeling hydrated yet clean.
Most Helpful Critical Review I would be wary of this if you get congested acne/spots
I was recommended to use Dermalogica products by my beauty therapist. I have had issues with my skin for 10+ years - not only do I have very sensitive skin that can dry out, but I also have oily, acne prone skin (particularly around the chin which is also due to hormonal acne). My therapist advised me to work on my sensitive skin issues first and recommended the PreCleanse Oil, Ultra Calming Cleaner, Ultra Calming Mist, and Calm Water Gel to use. I used them for 2 months with no other products. This is where I feel I went wrong, as incorporating an exfoliant or spot treatment may have avoided what happened. After 6-8 weeks, the areas that usually get congested got so so much more congested, I had never seen my skin like it. Red, inflamed, whiteheads everywhere, spots forming right next to and practically on top of eachother, hyperpigmentation, and many little clogged pores that I could see. I waited to see was this just skin purging but nothing changed. After I noticed this, I spoke to my therapist again and we added in Daily Microfoliant and Spot Treatment cream but unfortunately for me it was too little too late.
2 weeks ago, I tested removing both the PreCleanse Oil and the Ultra Calming Cleanser from my routine (as I did not know which may be causing congestion) and have already seen a difference. My skin is slowly but surely improving from the fallout of the products I used. I definitely think these 2 products added to my acne issues but I also think I could have avoided it if I had incorporated acne targeting products at the beginning too.
I am still using a number of the Dermalogica products which I love, but not the cleansers any more until my skin heals (it is going to take some time I imagine). I would still recommend Dermalogica but please please be wary of this if you get congested skin easily, as I used too much product, clogged my skin and suffered the consequences of it

The toad from Walnut,Ca
Started using this in highschool since my skin can get very irritated easily from face washes. First time I used it my face immediately felt cold and less red. Works like a charm!
I would buy this product again and again.
Jann from California
This entire line of calming skin care products is amazing and it truly works and does what it says. I noticed a big difference from the first use. The redness is greatly reduced and the bumps caused by my rosacea, which I have been battling for many years, are gone. I highly recommend this line of skin care products. It's a bit pricey for me on a low-income budget but so worth it and you only need a small amount of the serum and barrier repair so it is well worth the extra expense.
I will always use this!
LT from Denver, CO
I have very sensitive skin, but I use this twice a day with zero issues. If I am wearing makeup, I use the pre-cleanse first. The two of these products combined work wonderfully!
I would buy this product again
Michele from Milwaukee
This really makes my skin feel clean and refreshed. I still have some redness on my cheeks and get a couple pimples here and there but I've see. Improvement in just the few weeks I've been using it.
Jaxberry from Jacksonville, Fl
Comes out of the pump easily, goes on smotth and easy to wipe off. Leaves me with an immediate smooth feel.
You will NOT regret investing
Chels from Greenville Michigan
I started getting facials in multiple salons in my area to find the best products for my acne prone skin without fully investing in every product line. I finally found the best! One of the issues I have with skincare for my skin is how dry it gets using all the acid but this helps so much to combat that
vanessa from Chicago
Love using this product for my day and night routine! I have super sensitive skin. Started getting dermalogica facials and this product was recommended among other products and it's amazing! Not drying or stripping. My face feels clean, soft and radiant after using it. It also has no scent which I appreciate
for sensitive skin - this is the BEST !
danizone from Murrells Inlet , SC
I have been using this cleanser am and pm for YEARS. It has NO perfumes or fragrance - other than natural. It is smooth and not too sudsy. This will leave your skin clean and NOT irritated in any way.
Nessa from California
About a year ago I had a lot of acne on my forehead, and very oily/ dry skin. I got recommended this product, and I fell in love with it! I really saw a difference in my skin:)
My eyelids are destroyed
Jennifer from Orlando
I was a dedicated dermalogica user for years And then I went from looking ten years younger than my age to aging around my eyes about 15+ years within two years. Huge pockets under my eyes, awful wrinkles, you name it. I didn't realize how volatile the ingredients in this cleanser are until I stopped using it for a few days. My face stopped stinging and the large pockets beneath my eyes started shrinking. Come to find out, lavender is a very big irritant for most people. this ENTIRE time, it was dermalogica that was aging my face significantly. Well, this is disappointing. I didn't research the other ingredients yet, but based on the lavender alone, it's clear this is not a soothing line of skincare. I have started researching other brands for products that have zero fragrance or essential oils. "Natural" does not always mean healthy.
Love this for sensitive skin!
Mae from VA
The salon I worked at used dermalogica, and I love this face wash! If you have any kind of redness, you'll notice a difference immediately after washing, and it seemed to helped my skin improve altogether over time! It is pricey, but if you can splurge, it's so worth it! The big bottle easily lasts me 6 months.
Zahíra from Puerto Rico
I found this product in my eternal search of a cleanser that could be gentle enough to treat my rosacea (type 2) and sensitive skin but at the same time clean my skin without feeling it oily. It has been really difficult to find this combination since the majority of rosacea/sensitive products are made for dry skin and leave my skin somewhat oily. I have tried a lot of products looking for this combination and after a lot research I am so glad I found this during my quarantine time. I have been using it for almost two months and I really like it!
Feels Like Silk
Steph from Orange County, CA
I really enjoy the feel of this cleanser; it reminds me of hair conditioner in its texture and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean.
I would buy this product again...
annajuliet from Ga
I would buy this product again. It cleans my skin well and it does not irritate skin around my eyes.
Brittany from Gettysburg
This product literally calms my skin down. No breakouts with it on accutaine!!!! Definitely WORTH THE INVESTMENT!
Amy Rose from Washington
This is such a gentle cleanser. I have started using this instead of getting Special Cleansing Gel again since I have a bad break out right now due to not being able to go to my esthetician because of shut downs. But I almost think I like the Special Cleansing Gel more; it gets a better lather. But as far as helping with redness and such, I do think this cleanser has been helpful.
I would buy this product again if packaged differently
Nina from New Jersey
this is wonderful cleanser HOWEVER it should be presented in a different packaging, perhaps a tube. It's very thick and difficult to get out and when near the end will not
come out at all. Too expensive to waste.
This is the second review I have left and do hope the people in the company pay attention
to these reviews.
Kpup from Texas
This is my second purchase of this cleanser. My skin has finally calmed down and most of the redness has gone away. It is a bit on the expensive side, but very little is needed so a little goes a long way. For me, it is well worth the money spent. I've tried so many cleansers that just irritated my skin.
Great for sensitive skin
seattledogmom from Seattle, WA
I use it daily for facial cleansing.
I would definitely buy this product again
