Comments about dermal clay cleanser:

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.

Finally!!!

By 

from Pittsburgh, Pa

Comments about dermal clay cleanser:

I have finally found the perfect cleanser for me!! I have very oily, break-out prone skin. This cleanser does exactly what it says it does! It has definitely improved my breakouts within the first couple days of using it! I love how the menthol in the cleanser makes my skin feel. It feels so clean, but not stripped of moisture. I also love how it doubles as a mask! This is my new holy grail!!! I will be repurchasing!

Best cleanser money can buy

By 

from Phoenix

Comments about dermal clay cleanser:

I have been using this cleaner for almost a year and it is the best cleanser I have ever tried. I went through a fade of really bad acne and everything I was trying was not working or irritating my face even more. This cleanser is magic in a bottle. I do feel it works better when paired with other Dermalogica products but it is still a great stand alone product to add to your daily routine.

Hard to tell ...

By 

from Astoria New York

Comments about dermal clay cleanser:

I've been using this along with the with the oil control lotion as my aesthetician reccommended it to me because my oil skin causes lot of blackheads and clogged pores. After about 2 days my skin was very dry around my nose and chin but the flaking eventually went away. Now my skin has a minor breakout on my left side of my forehand and cheek/jawline area. It could just be a hormonal breakout but hard to tell. Will write a more updated review once I've used it for atleast a month. I do like the smell of the mask and the tingling sensation when washing but I do feel like I have to use a lot more product to get a cleaner face.

    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.

      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.

  • Q:

    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?

      Dermal Clsy cleanser is an excellent cleanser for both men and women. Used after the pre cleanse , it is excellent at absorbing excess oil and purifying the skin. If left on the skin for a 2-3 minute period it is a quick clay mask that gives your skin that extra help it may need that day withought having to take the time to do a whole routine !!! It also has a somewhat menthol feel on the skin which is excellent if you are just waking up !!! Enjoy !!!!

  • Q:

    How many times should i use this for my skin type?: I have just ordered this with the multi toner and active moist moisturiser. I have combination skin, but more oily around the T zone. I used the medi bac cleanser but had to stop after two weeks as it made my skin more oily and had small lumps coming out on my forehead. Will the dermal cleanser be okay to use twice a day, or should i just use it once a day?
