Dermalogica's Best Selling Cleanser

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.

A little goes a long way! ; )Review by Carys
My Rating
I love how convenient and practical the pump is on this size bottle. One pump is more than enough so I can tell this product is going to last a long time.. ; ) Love how clean and soft my skin feels afterwards. (Posted on 11/01/2019)
Will always repurchase.Review by Eve
My Rating
My holy grail cleanser. I feel like it's cleansing my skin thoroughly but not stripping it. I use it nightly with either my Clarisonic or musli cloth after using an oil based make up remover, and then a toner, serum and moisturiser. Bought this in a small size and it lasted ages. Onto my 2nd bottle now. (Posted on 28/03/2018)

Works Well but SLS ??? Review by Charlene
My Rating
I think this cleanser works well and you don't need a lot but I also question the use of SES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate) . Is there anything else that could be used instead? I have a travel size, but I wont be buying this product again. (Posted on 27/04/2017)

Great Everyday ValueReview by MrTez

I used to use biotherm cleanser until they exited Aus. I tried this product and i havent looked back. For a male I find it does the job well; skin feels clean and fresh. I have found the 500ml size best value for the 12 months. (Posted on 12/12/2016)
An effective cleanser with some questionable ingredients. Review by CJ
My Rating
Overall I liked this cleanser, it leaves your face feeling clean and not dried out. However the inclusion on SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate) and parabens in such a high-end product is a big downfall for me. (Posted on 3/11/2016)
Lifesaver!Review by Tahlee
My Rating
This is the best cleansing product. I've struggled for years with acne and drugstore products never cleared my skin, this has. If I get a breakout and cleanse my face with this gel I wake up and the pimples vanish, I can't live without it. It last a very long time too. (Posted on 27/10/2016)

Cant beat this CleanserReview by Tamra
My Rating
Been using this for 10 years (am now 43) and am an avid fan. Have tried other brands and other products in the Dermalogica range, and always come back to this one for the perfect blend of cleanse without being drying. Skin feels clean but not "stripped". Even through six months of Chemotherapy, this product has worked a treat. (Posted on 1/10/2016)

This foaming cleanser leaves my skin soft and feeling super clean. Unlike other I have tried it doesn't leave my skin feeling super tight and day like some foaming cleaners do. Would highly recommend for oily and acne prone skin (Posted on 9/09/2016)

Very gentle productReview by Lien
My Rating
I received some samples before deciding to make a purchase. After the night using the sample, my skin is very smooth and soft. I usually have oily shine in the morning, but using this cleanser reduces my oil a lot! Very satisfied with the product. will purchase the 500ml straight away. Plus, very good customer service. Will definitely introduce to friends. (Posted on 29/04/2016)

I tried another cleanser in the dermalogica range and went straight back to this one. Nothing has ever made my face feel so clean and refreshed with using such a tiny amount of product that foams up so much! Loveeeeee this product. (Posted on 22/04/2016)

Excellent cleanserReview by Rebecca

I have been using this cleanser for a long time now. I really love that it is a gel and foams up when you mix with water in the shower. It is one of the only cleaners I have used that gets my make up off. (Posted on 20/12/2015)

A little truly goes a long way whilst it does its job.

A really light feeling gel which foams lightly, skin feels clean but not tight afterwards. I prefer using this in warmer months compared to the milk. (Posted on 8/12/2015)
