Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours.
How to use Following the application of PreCleanse, apply to dampened face and throat, massaging with light, upward strokes. Concentrate on any areas of excessive dryness and impurities. Rinse with warm water. Follow with Multi-Active Toner and prescribed Dermalogica Moisturiser.

Value for moneyReview by Jessica
My Rating
An excellent large bottle for the price is a plus. This cleanser would suit most skin types it doesn't leave that dried out feeling like other brands. I especially love the non fragrance it seems like it's not harsh in chemicals either. It's definitely my new fave Dermalogica product (Posted on 25/09/2015)
The gentle oneReview by Ting
My Rating
very gentle on skin, tried this product in winter month due to dryer skin. Worked fantastic, does the cleaning but feel a lot more gentle than special cleansing gel. (Posted on 9/08/2015)

My Go To ProductReview by KCherie
My Rating
This product is a large part of my daily regime in fact I look forward to putting it on at night and feeling like my face is clean and fresh.

The texture of the cleanser is a rich cream like consistency but not a lot is needed as it spreads well.

My skin in normally dry and can be sensitive and unfortunately when I have days that my skin becomes highly sensitive I do switch it out with the ultra calming cleanser as that seems to calm the redness better, but overall this is the product I always come back to. (Posted on 29/04/2015)
Excellent cleanserReview by Lane

I recently changed to the Essential Cleansing Solution as I'm getting older and my skin is becoming drier. This product is excellent, and is handy in the shower with the pump. It's gentle on my skin, though still leaves it feeling3102 clean. Will definitely repurchase. (Posted on 7/04/2015)

gentle and very effectiveReview by Danielle
My Rating
I use this cleanser twice a day and love that it removes all my makeup including eye makeup easily and leaves my skin soft and hydrated. I have sensitive skin at times and this is very gentle and a great start to my skin regime. (Posted on 6/12/2014)
Smooth & HydratedReview by Tam
My Rating
I love this cleanser, I have combination skin prone to dehydration on my cheeks. After cleansing my skin feels soft and clean but not tight. The 500ml pump pack seems to last forever! (Posted on 12/11/2014)
ExcellentReview by Fifi
My Rating
It took me ages to find a cleanser that didn't irritate my skin because my skin is sensitive. This product does exactly as it says, it cleanses without upsetting my skin. I also wear make up & after one wash my face is clean. Love this product. (Posted on 15/10/2014)
Great cleanserReview by Deni
My Rating
I've been using this cleanser now for some months, and wouldn't use anything else. Its creamy, easy to use and leaves skin smooth & not dry feeling. Love the pump pack. (Posted on 12/10/2014)
One of the very best!Review by Dannielle
My Rating
I absolutely love this cleanser. It's gentle, moisturising, and cleanses well. If you prefer the squeaky clean feel then this isn't the cleanser for you. I've tried many cleansers and have come back to this one yet again. I used it earlier today and can't stop touching my skin! (Posted on 30/08/2014)
The best cleanser out thereReview by mrswilly
My Rating
I love this cleanser - its does what it is supposed to do but doesn't strip my skin of precious oil and never leaves my skin feeling tight or dry. The pump pack is really convenient for the shower. (Posted on 8/08/2014)

This cleanser is very gentle on the skin, while still removing all makeup and dirt. It is great for people with sensitive or dry skin. One of the best cleansers I have ever used! (Posted on 2/01/2014)
