Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

I love this product because it help with older skin and they is not reason to use the Daily Microfoliant with this product because it has its own exfoliant with it. Helps keep my skin smooth.

Great Product! Actually Works!

By 

from Ventura, CA

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

This was my first product that I purchased from Dermalogica and it is amazing. I am 28 and I have been using anti-aging products since I was about 20 (you can never start too early)! I used it morning and night for about a week, not knowing how truly powerful this product was, and the areas around my chin, mouth/smiles lines, and a little bit on the tip of my nose became extremely dry and started to peel. I'm not sure if this skin needed to come off (lol) but I took a break from it and have been using the essential cleansing solution that I received as a sample, and now my face feels great! The bottle says if you feel any tightness or dehydration to cut back to about 2-3 weekly, so my suggestion is to start out sparingly depending on your skin type. My face feels tighter and firmer and less sign of fines lines already!! Being a So Cal girl, I spent a lot of time in the sun and have signs of aging already (crows feet when I smile and smile lines). I'm ecstatic that I have found a product that 1.actually works and 2. Is completely affordable! Thank you Dermalogica for your amazing products!

Really good!

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

My friend gave me this as a present and it really saved my skin! Only with this product I got rid of dryness and my skin really resurfaced, smooth, clean and bright after only few uses. I will buy again and I can't wait to try with the moisturizers and eye treatments can do!

Amazing!

By 

from Suffolk

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

My skin is oily/acne prone however I have seen an improvement in just 5 uses of this product. Due to the acid in this product, I would only use twice a day if skin is very dry/more mature. Although I am only 21, I love the AGE Smart range of Dermalogica to keep my skin looking very radiant and plump - saves using illuminaters/highlighters.

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

I have Very sensitive and reactive skin. I use this cleanser twice a week as my exfoliant or when I want my makeup application to be ultra silky smooth. Otherwise I use the ultra calming cleanser. I love how easy it is to use in the shower.

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

Though I'm in my 60's I've been troubled with tiny blackheads on my nose. This cleanser has been amazing from the first time I used it. It's costly so I use it only once a day. The results are astounding! I have the most clear skin ever without the drying side effects of harsher cleansers. I recommend it 100%!

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

I use this one in my shower so my pores are already open. It tingles and scrubs… beautiful soft smooth skin… and as a bonus it loosens blackheads! :)

  • Q:

    I had skin mapping done and I bought the Age Smart kit. The lady also suggested buying the PreCleanse and the daily microfoliant which I use the microfoliant only at night. My question is if this cleanser is an acid exfoliant, do I need to use the daily microfoliant too? Won't that be overexfoliating?

      A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. As the skin ages, cell turn over slows down. A person with advanced signs of aging can benefit from extra exfoliation to speed up cell turn over. However, if you are sensitive, please do not use Skin Resurfacing Cleanser and Daily Microfoliant one after the other.

      Kind Regards,
      The Dermalogica Team

      Answered on 9/30/2016 by Bernadette from Los Angeles
  • Q:

    Dryness due to the cleanser. Is it possible?: One of my cheek areas have developed a dry texture since I started using the Skin Resurfacing Cleanser. I use the cleanser once a day everyday.

    My question is, depending on skin type, is the cleanser know to induce dryness?

    If so, is there another cleanser I can use in conjunction to minimize the dryness, but keep reaping the benefits of chemical exfoliation that Skin Resurfacing Cleanser provides.

    Thank you!

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Resurfacing Cleanser is a treatment cleanser with 5% Lactic Acid. Lactic Acid brightens and exfoliates. If you are experiencing dryness please use Skin Resurfacing Cleanser 1-3 times per week. Try using Essential Cleansing Solution the rest of the time.

      Kind Regards,

      The Dermalogica Team

    • A:

      Thank you for your inquiry. Skin Resurfacing Cleanser should be emulsified with water while cleansing your skin. Remove this product with water until completely removed. This is a highly active exfoliating cleanser and should be removed with water. Thank you!
