This cleanser works wonderfully, one little hitch...it smells so bad it is hard to want to use. For real, maybe something is wrong with my bottle, and I got a 16ouncer (!) but the smell is similar to mildewing wet dirty clothes. Other than that it leaves skin very clean and very clean after just a few uses!

Q:I have break out prone skin, a bit oily but also flakey and dry so I'm not sure what product to use. I'm using the clearing skin wash, daily microfoliant, mult active toner and active moist. I'm considering using the essential cleansing lotion to help balance my combination skin.
Q:Essential cleansing cream to use first or cleansing gel for dry skin?
Q:Is this product gluten free?: I have a gluten allergy and was wondering if the essential cleansing solution is gluten free? Also, I would like to know what other products of yours are gluten free. I love your products but I have a severe reaction to wheat and gluten.
Q:Advice please :): After face mapping I was advised to use:-
Q:Would you recommend this cleanser to a teenager with a bit of dry skin?: If not, which product is best for her?
A:I am an adult with oily skin and love the Essential Cleansing Solution! I would get a skin analysis and see WHY her skin is dry. Does it need a moisturizer? Is she over-cleansing? Is the product she is using now too harsh? Dermalogica also makes a line of products that are designed for teens! I would check those out, as well as look into a moisturizer to address her specific needs!
