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.
