Cleared my skin in a week


Adult acne, hormones went crazy when switching contraceptive pill and couldn't get my skin back to normal, this has cleared my skin within a week, amazing cleanser.





Finally after years of searching for a cleanser to help with my acne I finally found this! I've seen a huge difference in my skin. I know they say it is r for hormonal acne but it's definitely been helping mine on my jawline!

The Best I've Used


My skin was covered with cysts when I bought this skin wash. Within 5 days I was clearing well. Within 2 weeks they were gone. Today, 2 months later, the lingering deep red marks are fading. I've never been free of them.

Northampton MA


Great cleanser


I use the clearing skin wash twice a day and absolutely love it. It doesn't dry out my skin and I've noticed a significant improvement in the severity of breakouts.

Effective,but NOT drying


I started using this cleanser a week ago, and almost all my clogged pores all over my face are gone. I'm a 26 years old male with no acne history, but due to having an oily skin, I get clogged pores and pimples (which is worsened in the summer and after working out), When trying different cleansers to treat acne (or in my case clogged pores & pimples), a lot of them tend to be harsh and dry your skin. With Clearing Skin Wash, I am a step closer to having clear and clean skin. It is safe enough to use twice a day. With this cleanser, no there are no fragrances or other irritants. Every ingredient is there for a reason to give treat your skin. The fact that all their products are vegan and cruelty-free, it means you can shop with a clear (no-pun intended) conscious

New York, NY


Helps skin feel clean


I use this product in the AM and PM and have noticed a difference in my skin - less oily and breakouts aren't lasting as long.



Must have for deep acne


I have been using this product for about 2 months and it is safe to say I went from having a ton of deep cystic pimples to maybe one that is still shrinking. I could never have pictures taken of me without a huge honker. I had none over Christmas and got so many compliments on how amazing my skin looked. I can go to the store and not be embarrassed for not wearing cover up. I'm super happy

Des Moines. Iowa

Would it be good to use if I have oily skin?: I don't really know much about dermalogica, but I'm a teenager and I have slightly oily skin,and I have acne.


Hello, Clearing Skin Wash is for a face full of acne. Dermal Clay Cleanser is for oily skin. Kind Regards, Bernadette
