I have been trying to get rid of DEEP blackheads and enlarged pires. Since 1973. Nothing has worked but this. Holy grail. Get it, use it!

The best face wash for acne

5

I'm probably on my third bottle of this stuff because it does it's job so well! I used to suffer with breakouts that kept coming back but this facial wash keeps them at bay. The salicylic acid really does go deep into the pores and cleans without drying, so worth the money compared to cheaper drug store products that dry out your skin.

Didn't work for me

I bought this product along with the usual but dermalogica decided to give me the sample when I bought it. Since first used, every time I get more breakouts. My skin was improving as I used dermalogica products but this turned my skin back to how it was in the past.

Got this for Christmas and ever since I started using it my skin has been amazing. I have barely any spots and my skin is super soft. I finally feel comfortable going out without wearing foundation for the first time in over 2 years. Recommend to anyone prone to breakouts
