Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel 500ml by Dermalogica

Overview

Getting skin squeaky-clean has never been so gentle! Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel is a soap-free, nourishing cleansing gel that removes excess oil, dead skin cells, and pollutants without stripping the skin’s natural moisture barrier.

It’s easy to keep skin happy, healthy, and hydrated whilst cleansing. This bestselling cleanser is the top seller in Dermalogica’s line. Special Cleansing Gel works for a variety of skin types, making it the perfect choice to help keep your skin cleansed and youthful.



Key benefits

 

  • Removes makeup effortlessly
  • Soap-free formula is non-drying, protecting the skin’s natural moisture barrier and moisture reserves
  • Leave skin feeling soft and clean rather than tight and dry
  • Includes soothing ingredients to better suit sensitive skin
  • PETA-accredited, cruelty-free


Key ingredients

 

  • Melissa Extract and Lavender Oil keep skin calm and nourished during cleansing to prevent dryness.
  • Balm Mint soothes irritation and visibly reduces inflammation.


How to use

 

  • Remove makeup before use if applicable.
  • Apply a grape-sized amount to the palm of your hands.
  • Massage gently onto a damp face.
  • Rinse with lukewarm water.
  • Continue with skincare routine as usual.


Who is Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel for?



This product is suitable for all ages and genders. The gel formula benefits those with normal or combination skin the most. Those with severely dry or oily skin will want to seek out another option better suited to their skin type.



Why is it important that this cleanser is soap-free?



Soap can work well in the shower or bath. But facial skin is very different than the skin on the body. For one, body skin is much thicker than the skin on the face.


Soap-free cleansers let you bypass the harmful effects of soap on the skin of the face. The face demands a product that treats skin gently. Because soap can strip skin of its natural oils and cause imbalances in oil production and pH, you want to avoid soap in your facial cleanser.

Top of the range cleanser - 20-06-2018 by

I have tried many types of cleansers and having quite sensitive skin I am cautious of what I use. The Special Cleanser is so good I noticed my skin become clearer within days of use. I use it every day, sometimes twice a day and my skin feels fresh and clean- and no reactions! Amazing product.

Best skin care brand I have used - 19-06-2018 by

For so long I have been trying to find a skin care brand that works for me and Dermalogica is by far the best. It leaves my skin feeling amazing and refreshed, it clears blemishes and relives redness. Would 100% recommend for everyone to try out their range.

My holy grail cleanser! - 18-06-2018 by

I have tried all sorts of cleansers but this is by far the one I always come back to. This pump bottle will last you ages (I'm a double cleanser, morning and night) and you need the smallest amount. I have combo/oily skin and it helps balance out the oiliness in my T-Zone but doesn't dry out my normal areas on my face.

Great cleanser - 15-06-2018 by

I have combination oil skin and use this cleanser twice a day, and in combination with the precleanser at night. I find it very gentle and it doesn't leave my skin feeling dry or tight. I have noticed my skin has improved with regular use. It is a big bottle and you don't need to use much so it's pretty good value.

Pump is great value - 15-06-2018 by

I love this product. From time to time, I like to change to a new cleanser for something different, but always end up coming back to this cleanser.

Easy cleanser - 12-06-2018 by

This cleanser is great. It cleans the skin nicely and gets remaining make up off. I also use it in the morning and my skin always feels so nice and clean after a good nights sleep. It gets all the residue off. Would recommend!

Holy grail - 01-06-2018 by

I love this cleanser! Perfect for any skin type that wants a nice clean feel without being too drying on the skin. It foams up really nicely to get that clean feel. It’s pH balancing so it doesn’t leave your skin dehydrated.
I always double cleanse and it gets my makeup off nicely

Great product, does not dry out my skin - 28-05-2018 by

Bought this specifically to help with the acne around my chin and jawline. You only need a small amount and it foams nicely and leaves my skin feeling very clean but not dried out (I use it twice a day). Helps reduce pimples quicker and works well with the toner and overnight clearing gel.

Awesome! - 27-05-2018 by

I have dry skin, break-outs and suffer from redness. I decided to give Dermalogica a try and was pleasantly surprised.

Since using the special cleanser, my face is clearer, shinier and there is less redness. I use it daily and follow with moisturiser.

Freshly clean - 25-05-2018 by

This is my favourite dermalogica cleanser. I really only need one small pump which is sufficient for my whole face.

The gel cleanses my skin and removes all traces of make up. I generally use this when my skin needs a good thorough clean.

I find this is also gentle enough to use twice a day. My skin always feels fresh and light after using this.

Feels really refreshing - 23-05-2018 by

Loved this product, really nice on the skin except I love the other cleansers dermalogica has to offer

It's okay - 18-05-2018 by

It's okay but I find it very hard to wash it all off and I feel like I need to cleanse again. This may be a good cleanser for me to keep in the shower for a pre cleanse.

Best makeup remover - 18-05-2018 by

I use this to remove my makeup and heavy sunscreens, and it does the job perfectly. The fragrance is light, but nice, and the quality of the product is awesome! The price is high, but the bottle lasts me a very long time, so it's worth it!!

Best cleanser ever! - 12-05-2018 by

This cleaner is my holy grail. It turns into a foam and removes all makeup and pollutants for a deep clean without dehydrating the skin. As someone with combination skin, this is an amazing product! It has also lasted me more than 6 months now and is not even close to running out!

Quality product - 08-05-2018 by

Lovely cleanser; I use it twice a day and always leaves a fresh, clean feeling. No fragrance or smell, and is gentle but also helps tackle impurities and oil. Works best with a small portion of product in hand and then lather up with some water to apply to face. I wish they were a bit cheaper, however it does last ages as only a small portion is needed each use.

Great product - 18-04-2018 by

I love this product as I suffer from very sensitive dry skin but also from acne so this cleanser is great as it provides the balance I need and very gentle. The pump is also very convenient.

Helped get my dehydration under wraps - 17-04-2018 by

I’ve suffered for so long with horrible skin due to dehydration and the special cleansing gel has by far been the best cleanser I’ve tried, so worth the price. I either use it on its own or every few days mix it with my daily microfoliant and it just works wonders, my skin feels 100x better now.

Favourite cleanser - 21-02-2018 by

Absolutely love this cleanser! I always seem to go back to it. I’m on my third huge bottle. It feels like it really cleans my skin without drying it out and it helps keep my hormonal acne to a minimum.

Brilliant - 19-02-2018 by

Can't recommend this product more highly! I was previously using a another gel cleanser, and thought I would never find another that I loved as much as I did that one...well apparently, my affections have gone to another! You only need the tiniest amount and it goes so far! I have sensitive skin and need a cleanser I can use twice a day. The lavender smell is subtle and lovely and it is able to take my makeup off with out stripping my skin. Considering it's 500ml, I think it's definately worth the price tag...it will last me ages! Get it!

Great for dry and tired skin - 14-02-2018 by

I was having real trouble with my skin as I was using cheap products. At 41 I don’t want breakouts, this is a great all round cleanser that worked miracles for me. Highly recommend

10/10 - 27-09-2017 by

I have normal/combo skin and just needed a simple cleanser for the shower. I love how this cleanser foams into a really soft fluffy foam and you can feel it doing a gentle cleanse. Works perfectly with my Clarisonic as well. Great value for money, my bottle has lasted a whole year. Pleasant smell.

Great value for money - 07-09-2017 by

I have sensitive skin and I think this may be a bit drying for me. I will try the Dermalogica Ultra calm cleanser next time as I am hoping this is the perfect fit for my skin type. If sensitive skin isn't a factor, then I would recommend you give this a try. Great value for money and no panda eyes!

Best ever - 25-08-2017 by

I've been using this cleanser for years now and I wouldn't be without it! Removes makeup with no trouble (I double cleanse with it at night) and refreshes in the morning with a single cleanse. Not drying at all for my skin. Amazing value - you only need a pea sized amount and it lathers up beautifully, so the pump bottle lasts literally months! Love it.

Great product, great Value. - 14-06-2017 by

I used Dermalogica years ago & have only just started using the range again. This cleanser ticks all the boxes for me: great value - you only need one pump, it's not at all drying or irritating on my winter-dry, sensitive skin & my skin feels clean afterwards. Will keep using.

Great value - 13-10-2016 by

I liked this cleanser and the price is great for a big pump bottle which will last me for ages! It doesn't strip my face of natural oils, doesn't leave my skin dry and it cleanses well as I prefer a lathering cleanser as opposed to a cream cleanser. My young teenage daughter uses it as well and she loves it too.

Worth every penny - 15-06-2015 by

I have acne prone skin. And even in my mid-20's the spots persist. So I've tried so many cleansing products but always return to Dermalogica's Special Cleansing Gel. Although expensive, you don't require much for a good cleanse. It's non drying and leaves your skin soft and properly clean. PLUS they don't test on animals. Makes you feel clean outside and in

My go to cleanser - 25-05-2015 by

I have been using this cleanser for quite a few years now. It always leaves my skin feeling nice and clean. Never any tightness afterwards. I buy the 500ml size and it lasts for ages. I have tried other cleansers but always come back to special cleansing gel!

Always #1 - 07-09-2014 by

I love this product. From time to time, I like to change to a new cleanser for something different, but always end up coming back to this cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean, never dries it out.

Great cleanser - 06-08-2014 by

I have combination skin and find Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel perfect for me. It's light yet still leaves you with a clean feel. I am a longtime fan of Dermalogica & their Special Cleansing Gel has become another fave.

Life Saver - 03-07-2014 by

I've been using this cleanser for about 5 years now and is deff my holy grail product for my skin. At one stage I did try something else and nothing did compare to it, some may find it a bit expensive but I just buy the big pump bottle and I seem to get my monies worth. Plus my skin loves it !

Value for money - 17-12-2013 by

I've used this cleanser for about 5 years now, and I'm completely satisfied. It cleanses my skin without leaving it feeling dry and taut. I know you’re meant to double cleanse but i never need to with this cleanser. Works a dream and best of all is the price tag!

An excellent all purpose cleaner - 01-09-2013 by

I use Special Cleansing Gel every day. It's good enough to remove makeup but gentle enough on my sensitive skin. It's expensive, but finally Dermalogica have reduced prices somewhat after gouging the Australian market for years.

excellent every day product - 24-03-2013 by

I have been using this product for years. I have sensitive skin. I can use this product in the shower, and my skin feels thoroughly cleansed without any redness or irritation.
Whilst it appears expensive, you only need the tiniest amount so it lasts forever and turns out to be quite good value.

Always good - 10-01-2013 by

I bought this for my sister, who has sensitive skin that is prone to dryness. She has been using this product for years and rates it highly. I have used it on occasion and am always impressed with the way my skin feels after use.
