I received a free cleansing kit from Influenster and let me start off by saying this kit could not have come at a better time! My face has been breaking out like crazy (not a good time with my wedding coming up) and could not for the life of me find anything that would help. I made sure to only use the products in the kit to make sure my review is 100% about the product. I have been using this cleanser for a little over a week now and i must say my skin is looking great!! At first I was a bit skeptical because I broke out like CRAZY the first 3 days, but after about 5 my skin started to calm down and started to feel like the cleanser was ACTUALLY doing something! There is a little bit of a smell to the cleanser, but nothing you would really notice (it smells good). It does have a bit of a "slimy" texture but it really isn't bad at all considering how much it has helped my skin. Even though this was sent to me for free, I would most defiantly buy this over and over again!

Love this cleanser! It really helped my skin after having negative effects of winter weather and another brand that wreaked havoc on my skin. My skin was dehydrated and oily at the same time and I was having horrible breakouts which I couldn’t understand since the product that I was using was for oil and acne. I was in school for Esthetics at the time and we just happened to be researching products in chemistry and I learned that the product that I was using contained ingredients that were horrible and for our skin and also not PH balanced. We used dermalogica a lot at school and my instructor insisted I try it. She pretty much guaranteed it would help and IT DID!! I swear by this brand to this day! I’ve actually been having some skin care issues again due to the winter weather and I’m about to switch back to my dermalogica!

This is my go-to facial wash in the morning while I am showering, I absolutely love this product for my combination skin as it does not dry my skin out like other soaps. In fact this product does not have any soap in it, which I find amazing as it still foams up and leaves my skin feeling baby soft!!! Smells great and lasts a long time, I have been using this religiously for two months now and am not going back to regular soap again!!!

I am currently enrolled in beauty school right now going for my masters aesthetics, we use the line Murad at my school and I love that line, but I currently was introduced to the line Dermalogica and I will say that tends to my skins needs 110% in every way. I am so glad that I got sent this in my vox box, I will now and forever be a long time buyer of their products!

Review for: Special Cleansing Gel 32 fluid oz more...
Absolutely love this cleanser. I was given a sample with another Ulta purchase a while back & immediately I saw results in my skin. It lifted dirt out of my pores and it made my skin feel very clean & smooth. I use it daily in the morning and combined with the moisturizer & serums best for my skin, it is a dream. My makeup sits really well because my skin is balanced and prepped from this incredible cleanser. Its a beautiful gel texture with a light fragrance - no fussy format, just a solid cleanser for everyday use. It never irritates my sensitive skin, just leaves it feeling fresh!

Review for: Special Cleansing Gel 1.7 oz more...
I received this product as part of my PreClease VoxBox and it I actually really like it! It's is slightly thicker than water in consistency but not a gel by any means. It lathers really well and makes me feel like my face is clean without stripping away all the oils and making my skin feel uncomfortably tight. It even takes off my makeup! It doesn't irritate my skin or make my eyes burn either. The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because the full size is $37 and I don't think it works amazingly better than other, more affordable facial cleaners on the market. But if you don't mind the price tag, then it's definitely worth a try!

I have a very sensitive skin, not to mention that constant long flights test my skin. And when I get home my skin used to get into red spots after ordinary cleansing. When I tried Dermalogica - I got rid of the red spots, red circled around my eyes as well, and no feeling of dryness!
It’s a great care for the skin!
I love it and I will definitely buy it again!

I love trying out new face cleansers and lotions etc., I was kin of disappointed in this, or maybe just my skin is. The packaging is very sleek looking but the product itself did not meet my expectations. It was too harsh for skin. I found that it left my skin with really dry tight patches. I found myself having to grab extra moisturizer throughout the day.

I recieved this product along with the precleanse balm. I would use the precleasne balm at the end of the day before i shower then in the shower i would use this cleansing gel to wash my face. And it has been amazing. A little bit truly goes a long way with this stuff! it lathers beautifully and doesnt feel harsh on the skin. It truly feels like it is cleaning deep but not stripping my skin or anything. I follow it witha basic moisturizer but my skin is always feeling so clean afterwards

Omg can I love this! The cleansing gel is super light, it doesn't burn my skin, and it leaves my face feeling baby soft (clean). I have fairly sensitive skin so it can be tough finding the right solution. Thanks to dermalogica I don't have to worry about that anymore! I highly recommend for those who have dry sensitive skin like I do! I received the product for free for testing.

I received this cleanser from a monthly box subscription, and I have somewhat sensitive skin to new cleansers, but I wanted to give it a shot. Is it really harsh on skin?

I have tried this brand before and it is amazing, but its more on the pricey side. Is this product worth buying? Ulta

After stopping birth control my skin has become very problematic and the hormonal acne is killing me. Do you recommend using the special cleansing gel or a stronger cleanser like clearing face wash? I don't want to overdo it and make my skin worse by using a harsh cleanser because the glycolic acid face wash I am using now seems to be irritating my skinDermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
