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!

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

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!

    Hello,

    Can this cleanser be used for males also or just females?

    Thank you

    • A:

      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?

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser is for extremely oily skin. If you are combination, you might prefer Special Cleansing Gel.

  • 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?

  • Q:

    can I alternate between dermal clay cleanser & clearing skin wash?: I am 28 yrs old. I am coming off using a different skin care regimen & wanted to try this line out. My skins completely different after my second child. I've never had this bad forehead and chin acne before. I was told to try either dermal clay cleanser or clearing skin wash. Can I alternate between both? If yes, then can I also alternate between the products in the medi bac line and oily skin line?
    Asked on 4/21/2014 by Dannii from Canada

    • A:

      Yes, you can alternate between dermal clay cleanser and clearing skin wash. If you are experiencing breakouts we recommend to use clearing skin wash. If you have oily skin and black heads we recommend using dermal clay cleanser. All of Dermalogica's products can be used with each other. We hope this information has been helpful. Please don't hesitate to contact us again.

      Answered on 4/28/2014 by DermalogicaSkinTherapist from Los Angeles
    • A:

      yes, I believe all of Dermalogica's products are designed to be used interchangeably. The Dermal Clay Cleanser is wonderful and will not be quite as intense as the Clearing Skin Wash. If you are experiencing breakouts all over then I would go with the Medibac Clearing Skin Wash; if it's only spot breakouts then I would do the Dermal Clay Cleanser with targeted treatment items on the forehead/chin area. The Dermal Clay Cleanser doubles as a mask as well!

      Also - just a thought, be careful with cosmetics, detergents (on pillow cases), hairspray, etc that might be leading to breakouts, although its probably hormonal since you mentioned the flareups were after childbirth. I'm 31 years old with occasional breakouts and frequent redness; I am normal to oily with large pores. I rotate between the Special Cleansing Gel and the Dermal Clay Cleanser.

      Answered on 5/26/2014 by HellOnHeels from Oklahoma, USA
    • A:

      If you have active breakouts, it seems like maybe you should try the medibac cleanser first. I'd try one product at a time to narrow down which cleanser is working best for me. If the first cleanser isn't helping after a couple months, then I'd switch to the other to see if that one helps. I have oily skin that tends to breakout, so I do use some products from the oil line (cleanser) and others from the medi bac line (mask). It took a little experimenting to find what works best for me, good luck!

      Answered on 9/1/2014 by Lizzy8461 from United States
    • A:

      I would recommend only using one initially. This will allow you to determine whether the product is effective. If you do not see results after some time, switch to the other product.

      Answered on 12/27/2014 by ldubs from Minnesota, USA
    • A:

      I alternate between all three. I also work in the ultra calming cleanser from time to time when needed.

      Answered on 4/4/2015 by BonB from Salt Lake City, UT, USA
    • A:

      yes completely. If you're not as oil in the morning, use the Clearing Wash, and use the Dermal clay at night. If your acne is reacting well to those cleansers, just try a spot treatment or serum from the MediBac. If you still find yourself very oily, the go ahead and use the medi every other day. Best way to get advice is go to a dermalogica skin therapist in your area, she can zone in and check your skin out and tell you exactly what you need, and there will be no confusion. :)
