Comments about dermal clay cleanser:

I don't like this product. It didn't irritate my skin but it also didn't feel like it really cleaned it. I noticed no help on the oil control front and no "cooling" sensation. All in all a bust.

Woke up my skin

By 

from Upstate NY

Comments about dermal clay cleanser:

I have been using Dermalogica for 10 years. I recently tried a sample of the Dermal Clay Cleanser and immediately wanted to add it to my routine. The cleanser leaves my skin feeling refreshed, without drying it out. It's a perfect mid-week treatment to incorporate into my routine.

Amazing morning cleanser

By 

from Boston

Comments about dermal clay cleanser:

This is my new favorite cleaner to use in the morning! It kind of gives you a minty clean feeling when you rub it in to your face and leaves your face super clean without feeling dry or tight. I would be careful with using this around your eyes, but other than that I highly recommend this if you have combination/oily skin like me!

Great Product!

By 

from Bel Air, MD

Comments about dermal clay cleanser:

This was recommended after a Dermalogica facial. My skin has improved a lot since I started using this product along with other prescribed Dermalogica products. I love the way it helps with my oiliness as well as the tingle of the menthol after washing.

Clean skin

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about dermal clay cleanser:

I hate wearing makeup because I can always feel it on my face after a few hours. I started using this cleanser and tried a BB cream that I had given up on. I forgot that I was wearing it all day long. This cleanser made me realize that it was the oiliness that was bothering me and it controlled it perfectly. I'm a life-long user of this product now!

  • Q:

    I have been using the special cleansing gel but it does not seem to be enough for my combination skin. I saw this one and was thinking in giving it a try. I'm currently pregnant. Before I buy it, I wanted to find out if this product is safe to be used during pregnancy.

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser is amazing for excessively oily skin. If you are truly oily, then yes Daily Microfoliant will pair wonderfully with the product.

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser is for excessively oily skin. It also has a cooling effect. If your skin is excessively oily, this may be the best option for you. If you are more combination, you may prefer Special Cleansing Gel. Special Cleansing Gel is a mild cleanser that will deep clean without stripping your skin. You only need the size of a pea, and its safe to use over the eyes. It is for oily, normal, or combination skin.

      Kind Regards,

  • Q:

    Hi there
    I really love the dermal day cleanser,
    I used it before my wedding a couple years ago and had the skin mapping and they prescribed this and were a little less adamant on which moisturiser but i got the active light moisturiser but
    when I ran out just used drugstore cleansers and moisturizers which made my skin worse

    Typically
    I have very oily skin, very large pores and lots of blackheads on my nose and some on cheeks, fine lines around eyes
    I'm 23, not too many pimples though

    I want to purchase this again because I remember it working
    But am curious as to what moisturiser I should pair with it?
    Is there a particular one that is best?

    Also do I need any other products to pair with these two?

  • Q:

    I have an oily t-zone which is prone to get teen acne especially around my chin and blackheads on my nose. My skin tends to get worse if i use a product that is too harsh on my skin so do you think this product would be okay for me to use morning and night?

      Dermal Clsy cleanser is an excellent cleanser for both men and women. Used after the pre cleanse , it is excellent at absorbing excess oil and purifying the skin. If left on the skin for a 2-3 minute period it is a quick clay mask that gives your skin that extra help it may need that day withought having to take the time to do a whole routine !!! It also has a somewhat menthol feel on the skin which is excellent if you are just waking up !!! Enjoy !!!!

  • Q:

    How many times should i use this for my skin type?: I have just ordered this with the multi toner and active moist moisturiser. I have combination skin, but more oily around the T zone. I used the medi bac cleanser but had to stop after two weeks as it made my skin more oily and had small lumps coming out on my forehead. Will the dermal cleanser be okay to use twice a day, or should i just use it once a day?

  • Q:

    Will my anti-aging serum be absorbed if applied after using this?: I am 56 and have large pores that fill with sebum. I read clay is a good way to eliminate this problem. I use an anti-aging serum and moisturizer at night. After using this product my skin felt great but as if it had a slight feeling of having moisturizer on it already. Will my serum penetrate this or should I use this only as a mask?
