Special Cleansing Gel 250 ml

Soap free, frangrance free cleanser washes away impurities without stripping or drying

Calming agents work to soothes and purify the skin

Gentle foaming lather cleanses away toxins and debris without over-drying, leaving a super-clean surface.

Please be advised that there have been minor adjustments to the Special Cleansing Gel formula. Modifications include making this best-selling formula paraben-free, as well as updating the surfactant system. Sodium Laureth Sulfate has been replaced with Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (neither to be confused with Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) which is known as a gentler surfactant due to its larger molecular size. This update will not affect the formula aesthetic in any way. There will be no detectible difference in product performance.

Perfect for summerReview by Joanne
My Rating
I find this gel gives me a better clean feel than the creamy washes. I put it down to being perfect for warmer months - living in a hot humid climate means I use it all year round. Leaves face feeling clean but not stripped. I always feel my sunscreen has been washed off properly. Definitely recommend. (Posted on 6/02/2020)
The perfect all rounderReview by Sarah
My Rating
I've used this since my mid 20s, and now almost 2 decades on I still haven't found a cleanser that is as good. So simple, effective, but never drying, it's just as good now on my starting to age skin as it was on my oily/combo/prone to breakouts skin back then. Also great as the 2nd cleanse to PreCleanse Balm, mops it up beautifully and leave skin fresh but never tight. (Posted on 23/06/2019)
Classic cleanserReview by JESSICA
My Rating
This is a classic day to day cleanser everyone should have.

It doesn't make your skin feel tight or dehydrated but it definitely feels clean afterwards.

I use this with the precleanse and daily microfoliant and it's perfect. If I'm looking for a deep clean I'll use twice before exfoliating but that's not usually required. (Posted on 12/06/2019)
Excellent for combo skinReview by Anya
My Rating
Lately Ive tried different cleansers and most of them dry my skinn too much. So far this one keeps some moisture at the same time that cleanses my skin well (Posted on 18/11/2017)
Fresh deep clean feelReview by Samantha

This is great to remove make-up. I find it a little drying when used all the time. I use in combination with essential cleanse (Posted on 16/05/2016)
My Favorite CleanserReview by Jess
My Rating
I have been using this cleanser for the past 2 months and love it. I was worried it might not be suitable being a gel foam cleanser and leave my skin feeling tight as I get breakouts and have combo skin but it doesn't at all. Couldn't recommend highly enough!! Skin feels soft and clean every time (Posted on 19/03/2016)
Gentle yet effectiveReview by EllieGlow
My Rating
I'm always wary of gel cleansers as traditionally they've dried my skin out and left it feeling tight. As an FYI, I'm normal to dry skin with hormonal breakouts.
However this cleanser is beautiful. I was surprised at how gentle it felt on my skin. It cleanses beautifully and leaves no residue or irritation. This is a great everyday cleanser. (Posted on 21/11/2015)
Best product for normal skin types Review by Paige
My Rating
I have always used professional products for my skin and hair, and I will never change. This product does wonders to my skin, it's so gentle and leaves me skin subtle and smooth, I recommend this to anyone wanting a daily cleanser, 10/10! (Posted on 3/10/2015)
Great CleanserReview by Angela
My Rating
I really like this cleanser. I have very oily skin which is prone to break outs. From once I started to use this product I had instant results. My skin feels very smooth after I use it. It doesn't dry out the skin like some other cleansers I've used in the past. My skin always feels clean and fresh. I would recommend to a friend. (Posted on 28/08/2015)
AwesomeReview by Donna
My Rating
I love this cleanser. Over the years I have never found the right one for me. I am in my early 40s and have combination skin. I don't have oily skin but always have at least one or two pimples on my face. Other facial cleaners make my skin too dry or make me break out really bad. This clears my skin up only after a week. It does not dry it out and my skin looks clear and radiant. I try other brands but always come back to this. Coupled with the daily microfoliant is a match made in heave. (Posted on 31/03/2015)

Best Cleanser ever!Review by Carolyn
My Rating
I am thrilled to recommend this cleanser. It is by far the best cleanser I have found and believe me I hve tried alot! It removes your makeup and does not leave your skin feeling all dry and tight just clean and fresh. It's one of their best products I think. (Posted on 21/03/2015)
The Bomb ! Review by Yasmine
My Rating
Best cleanser have been a daily user for over 2 years, I don't need to double cleanse with this (find it works well with 1 go & tends to dry me out too much if Ai do it twice) A little goes a long way, don't plan on changing products !! (Posted on 14/03/2015)
The cleanser I come back toReview by Natalie
My Rating
My sister introduced this cleanser to me. I fell in love instantly. I have tried other cleansers, but keep coming back to this one. I double cleanse with it of a morning, or cleanse once then exfoliate. It never leaves me with that dry/tight feeling, but always leaves me with thoroughly cleansed skin. I need to slight foaminess of this cleanser for my summertime combination/oily skin, but it's fine when I'm a bit drier through the winter too. (Posted on 9/03/2015)
Can't do without it!Review by liss
My Rating
I love this cleanser - I seriously can't do without it now. It doesn't dry out my skin but my skin still feels really clean. One bottle also lasted me a whole year. Definitely recommend it! (Posted on 23/02/2015)
My favourite cleanserReview by RN
My Rating
I've been using Special Cleansing Gel for about 12 months now and I love it. It does a really good job of removing makeup/dirt without making my skin feel over-cleansed. The texture of the gel is so smooth and feels amazing on my face. My skin is a little sensitive but this product does not irritate it at all, I use it twice a day.
I highly recommend it. (Posted on 23/02/2015)

Was given as a gift and I am hooked.... Now looking for other products in the dermalogica range that I can try! (Posted on 11/02/2015)
Great cleanser, gentle yet effective.Review by Melissa
My Rating
I don't use a lot of products or wear makeup a lot. I use the Dermalogica Microfoliant product everyday as a facewash. However I decided to give the Special Cleansing Gel a go. I LOVE IT! If I do use make up, I use this to remove it. It does a great job removing makeup and leaves your skin feeling very smooth and soft. Will buy again for sure. (Posted on 9/02/2015)
