Squeaky clean - 11-04-2018 by

Love how clean my skin feels after using this but I do feel it’s a little drying on my sensitive skin. Might’ve better for oilier skin types

Love this - feels great, smells great, and works for me! - 04-10-2017 by

I'm 31, have suffered from acne and unclear skin for years now and did another round of research on cleansers that actually cleanse, without wiping my skin dead. After trying everything including oral roaccutane and benzac cream, I was looking for something less harmful to use on my face twice daily.

I love how this cleanser lathers up while still feeling light on the skin. It smells really fresh and most of all it makes my skin feel amazing, clean and soft.

After 3 to 4 months my skin's overall smoothness had significantly improved. It's not an overnight transformation, but I can clearly see and feel the change and will definitely reorder.

My 500ml bottle lasted about 5-6 months so it's definitely worth the investment for me.

Can'twait to start using this again! - 02-07-2017 by

I got this as a sample with another cleanser from Bioderma, and was blown away by how much it cleared my skin up! Once I started using the other cleanser I'd actually bought my face broke out immediately. I can't wait to get my order for this cleanser, as it's done wonders for my skin before. Skin always feels clean after using, and gets rid of all my make-up.

Great cleanser. It made my skin feel super clean after use. Perfect to use after the pre-cleanse. It cleanses oily skin well and does not provide a stinging sensation that some cleansers do for oily skin which is great and means that this will definitely continue being used in the future

I used a sample of this product. The product itself was great, it cleansed my skin of all make up and grime in one wash without leaving my skin dry or tight. However, the product does contain sodium laureth sulfate (not as bad as true SLS but some people still like to avoid it) and I think there are better, more inexpensive cleansers.

I love this cleanser. It's one of the best I've used. My skin feels instantly fresh and clean. Goes on gel, then transforms into marshmallow foam. Great value for money, as it lasts for ages as I find most supermarket brands only last for a month, whereas this took me more than 6 months to go through an entire bottle! Am sticking with this one for a long time!

This cleanser has done more for my skin than any I have ever used. It leaves my face feeling fresh and clean, without any feeling of tightness or redness (like most other cleansers seem to do). I would definately purchase this product again, it's my HG of cleansers.

This would be ok for a morning cleanse or used after a makeup remover. Didn't do anything for me and can be slightly drying. I think there are far better cleansers for less money that do a better job.

I had small trial pack.. For my skin it was too stripping to use everyday, but a good simple cleanser non the less. So did not purchase big bottle. Lasts for ages, and good value if you buy the big bottles. Did 'seem' to get most make up off. Nice thick low foaming texture.

Great value for money! An amazing product which kept my skin soft, supple and hydrated. It even removed my makeup! A+ Keep it away from a flowing tap as water can leak through the top if you're not careful.

This is a good one to start on if you've never had a regime before, but if you have concerns like excess oil and congestion, this one won't help you. It's a good 'maintenance' product-like most of Dermalogica but if you want 'results' - go elsewhere

- 27-08-2008 by

Special Cleansing Gel is beautiful. It really helped to give my skin a clean finish every time and it even assisted me in removing my makeup! It does not leave the skin feeling tight or stripped of moisture. Just be careful if keeping it in the shower as water may leak in through the lid.

This is a pretty standard cleanser. It has a thin gel consistency and a familiar Dermalogica essential oil scent. It foams gently and leaves my combo/oily skin feeling clean but slightly tight. Not great at removing makeup, so probably best to do a double-cleanse or use a cleansing oil beforehand. This cleanser irritated my eyes quite a bit (I suspect the culprit is probably the strong fragrance) and left my skin feeling slightly uncomfortable. It didn't work spectacularly well for me, and I feel that there are other, better cleansers on the market.

Not bad but unfortunately too drying for me. Would be great for those with oily skin.
