Great cleanser, use it sparingly

By 

from California

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

I've been using this cleanser for a few years now and I love it. Recently, I noticed that it was drying my face out a bit, so I switched from using it every day to using 2-3 times a week. I alternate it with the Essential Cleansing Solution.

Acne prone and oily skin-not for me

By 

from Memphis, TN

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

This product works well but it isn't for someone with acne-prone skin or oily skin. For this reason, I have switched to the acne face wash. I still continue to use some of the other AgeSmart products for lines, etc.

Better for older skin

By 

from San Diego

Verified Buyer

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

I'm 27 and have oily skin and some fine lines. I thought this cleanser might help me after reading the reviews but it dried my skin out so bad even my lips and nose were chapped! I'm disappointed because I was really excited about it but when I saw my friend she said my skin looked super dull when it normally looks much shinier (which I used to think was a bad thing but not anymore after having my skin completely dry out). I still have high hopes for this cleanser so I gave it to my mom!

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

I am usually not a fan of cleansers, and prefer to use exfoliating products in addition to the precleanse. I got a sample of this product and now I'm hooked. It makes my skin feel so soft and smooth! After using this for the last few weeks I'm noticing old acne scars are starting to fade and I'm pretty sure it's all due to this cleanser!

Great over all facial cleanser

By 

from Houston, Tx

Verified Buyer

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

I have been using the special cleaning gel but I never felt like it washed my face enough even with pre-cleanse prior. I bought this in a sample package but I really enjoy it. I'm 28 and trying to take care of my skin. I have a lot of skin damage from never protecting my face enough. I bought the large bottle and enjoy how it feels. It is thin and makes my face feel refreshed after!

Not so great with my sensitive skin

By 

from Nashville, TN

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

I knew I had sensitive skin but I wasn't prepared for it to break out so much and dry to extreme degrees while using this product. It's a great cleanser with a nice creamy base, it's just not meant for me.

Comments about skin resurfacing cleanser:

I was expecting something a little more exfoliating. It doesn't have an exfoliant that you can feel in it, but it does feel good on your skin. It smells nice, and it washes off very well. All around good product.

The resurfacing cleanser is gentle and still effective at clearing skin but not leaving you feeling like your skin has been dried out.

      Hello Nikki,

      Thank you for your feedback. We do not use artificial colors in our products. However, this should be white.

      Thanks

  • 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?

      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

  • 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,

    • 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!
