I had received this as a sample and actually enjoyed this even after the first use. I love the tingling/cooling feeling it gives your skin when applied. I haven't used it long enough to notice any long term results but I do love the way my skin feels after washed.

The Dermal Clay Cleanser and oil absorbing moisturizer are working so well for me that after using them, my face feels too good to be mine. I know what MY face feels like, and this isn't it! Mine has never been this smooth and oil free.

I had really bad acnes problems in my 20s. My aunt sent me this cleanser, together with other products in the same line, as gifts. These amazing products have changed my skin condition completely. Since then, I have never switched to another brand for cleanser.

I am using the dermal clay cleanser and have started differin. 1. I use the dermal clay cleanser morning and night and the differin at night. Is this cleanser ok to use with a retinoid? It does not dry me out.

megan

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser does not exfoliate the skin. So you can use the cleanser with your prescriptions. Check with your doctor to be sure. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I have combo oily skin with hormonal acne that tends to show up on my chin and cheeks with a little bit of redness. Would this be a good cleanser? What toner and moisturizer would it pair good with?

Madison

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser is for a an extremely oily face. Clearing Skin Wash is for a full face of acne. Special Cleansing Gel is for normal, combination, etc skin. You may like Active Moist as a moisturizer. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

How often can you use this product? Can you use it every day?

Marinela

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use this product morning and night. Please note it is only for extremely oily skin. If you are combination, you may prefer Special Cleansing Gel. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Please try this regimen: Morning Dermal Clay Cleanser Multi Active Toner C 12 Pure Bright Serum Oil Free Matte SPF 30 Evening Precleanse Dermal Clay Cleanser Multi Active Toner C 12 Pure Bright Serum Pure Night with 1-2 drops of Phyto Replenish Oil Kind Regards, Bernadette

I have been using the special cleansing gel but it does not seem to be enough for my combination skin. I saw this one and was thinking in giving it a try. I'm currently pregnant. Before I buy it, I wanted to find out if this product is safe to be used during pregnancy.

Pali

Hello Pali, Thank you for being a Dermalogica customer. Yes, Dermal Clay cleanser is safe to use while pregnant. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Does this cleanser pair with the daily microfoliant?

seabam

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser is amazing for excessively oily skin. If you are truly oily, then yes Daily Microfoliant will pair wonderfully with the product. Kind Regards, Bernadette

is this harsh on sensitized oily acne prone skin?

Chitt

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser is for excessively oily skin. It also has a cooling effect. If your skin is excessively oily, this may be the best option for you. If you are more combination, you may prefer Special Cleansing Gel. Special Cleansing Gel is a mild cleanser that will deep clean without stripping your skin. You only need the size of a pea, and its safe to use over the eyes. It is for oily, normal, or combination skin. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi there I really love the dermal day cleanser, I used it before my wedding a couple years ago and had the skin mapping and they prescribed this and were a little less adamant on which moisturiser but i got the active light moisturiser but when I ran out just used drugstore cleansers and moisturizers which made my skin worse Typically I have very oily skin, very large pores and lots of blackheads on my nose and some on cheeks, fine lines around eyes I'm 23, not too many pimples though I want to purchase this again because I remember it working But am curious as to what moisturiser I should pair with it? Is there a particular one that is best? Also do I need any other products to pair with these two?

wantsniceskin

Hello, Thank you for being a Dermalogica customer. If you are extremely oily, you may like Dermal Clay Cleanser, Multi Active Toner and Oil Free Matte SPF 30 (am) or Oil Control Lotion (pm). Kind Regards, Bernadette

I have an oily t-zone which is prone to get teen acne especially around my chin and blackheads on my nose. My skin tends to get worse if i use a product that is too harsh on my skin so do you think this product would be okay for me to use morning and night?

Mikayla

Hi Mikayla, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Dermal Clay Cleanser is for a full face of very oily skin. If you have T Zone oily skin, you might prefer Special Cleansing Gel. Special Cleansing Gel is a mild cleanser that will deep clean without stripping your skin. You only need the size of a pea, and its safe to use over the eyes. It is for oily, normal, or combination skin. Kind Regards, Bernadette
