Gentle yet powerful

By 

from Portland

Comments about gentle cream exfoliant:

This is a gamechanger for me. I've always exfoliated with harsh products thinking I had to really scrub to get my acne prone skin really clean. Now I know that you can use enzymes to exfoliate that are not abrasive, hence the gentle part of the label. But you really should be sure to use a sample before buying this because it is really potent stuff. When I put the product on, it feels tingly at first, which are the enzymes doing their work. It's powerful and I can see why others who have more sensitive skin might find this product aggravating their skin. Test it out first, and hopefully you'll have the same experience as me, which was fabulously exfoliated skin! I also like mixing it with sebum clearing mask or the clay cleanser for a multitasking mask effect.

I have sensitive, oily skin. This product does wonders for controlling oil and reducing my pore size. I use as instructed on the bottle. Worth every penny.

Help!

By 

from sydney nsw

Comments about gentle cream exfoliant:

Hi, I got my face mapped the other week and got recommended the gentle cream exfoliant and I have oily/normal skin...... I used this product once and the next morning my cheeks felt really tight, dry and sore so I went and looked in the mirror and my cheeks were very red...... I normally would wake up and have to wash all the oil off my face but that morning all I wanted to do was layer moisturiser on my face... the next day my face was even more sore and I started to peel and I really don't know what to do.

Best exfoliant

By 

from Bedfordshire

Comments about gentle cream exfoliant:

Mild stinging occurs but afterwards my face is so even and smooth. I used to have acne and so my skin tone is uneven, I've been using this for over 2 months and my skin has evened out, feels smoother and brighter.

I never write reviews! But I've been using dermalogical

By 

from Harare Zimbabwe

Comments about gentle cream exfoliant:

I never write reviews. But I've been using dermalogical for almost 10 years now and thought I should probably share what an amazing range of products these are! The cleverest thing they could do was have those little sample sachets coz not everything works for everyone. Its also pricey so its hard to just experiement not knowing how you are going respond to something. I was taken aback to see that this gentle exfoliant doesnt agree with some people. it has an amazing, instant brightening effect on my skin. I use it if I need to look fresh in a hurry! I used to have incredibly sensitive skin and I've got a routine now with various dermalogica products and I haven't broken out once since!

Exfoliating without spreading sebum causing spots

By 

from NYC

Comments about gentle cream exfoliant:

Used this for 3 years now, 2 times per week.

Used to use a cheap apricot kernel scrub & haven't looked back.

Was educated by Dermalogica that I could be spreading sebum from spots to other areas of face & genuinely feel that this is helping to control my postpartum adult acne.

I wouldn't buy this again

By 

from Glasgow, Scotland

Comments about gentle cream exfoliant:

I have always had clear skin and bought this product to make my skin feel clean and fresh. After three uses over the course of two weeks my skin has broken out in spots. The word 'gentle' in the name is very misleading as the product is not gentle on skin at all. I'm so disappointed by this this was first time trying out a dermalogica product. I won't be using it again.

Gentle and fabulous

Comments about gentle cream exfoliant:

Exfoliant without scrubbing - dream come true! Using it once a week, leaving it on for 15 mins. Leaves the skin smooth and soft without irritating it.

Amazing results even after the first time!

By 

from Manchester

Comments about gentle cream exfoliant:

This is honestly one of the best products I've used. I already use the pre cleanse, cleanser and moisturiser by Dermalogica, and on recommendation tried this too. It made my skin sooo smooth and some dry patches I had on my forehead were noticeably smoothed out even after the first use. I had comments the day after saying that my skin was glowing!

  • Q:

    How should I balance the use of this product along with skin prep scrub, charcoal rescue masque, and daily micro exfoliant?
    Asked on 12/20/2016 by AJ

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hi AJ,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Using all of these items together can over exfoliate your skin.

      Gentle Cream Exfoliant is for acne skin and can be used 1-3 times per week for 7-10 minutes.

      Skin Prep Scrub is for oily skin and should be used 1-3 times per week.

      Charcoal Rescue Masque is for most skin types (not sensitive) and can be used 1-3 times per week for 7 minutes.

      Daily Microfoliant should be used once a day, but not on the same day as any of the exfoliants listed above. It is for all skin types.

      Kind Regards,
      The Dermalogica Team
