Very Good for dry skin.
I have been using this cleanser a long time. Besides clean, my face is soft and hydrated.
I don't normally write reviews but my skin used to have dry patches and I used to break out I've been using this cleanser for a year now, patches are gone and no spot since , a MUST HAVE
Used loads of cleansers. ..this is my favorite! Gentle but thorough cleansing, moisturing, doesn't strip skin. LOVE IT!
Its creamy and gentle by effective cleansing is awesome. wont use anything else
I have been using Essential Cleansing Solution for about a year now and I love it! Many other cleansers leave my face feeling tight, but this one is so gentle it feels great!

Hi Kim, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Essential Cleansing Solution is creamy and nourishes the skin. I know people who are dry and sensitive like to switch off between the two. I think you'll like it. For whatever reason if you do not, you can return it within 30 days as part of our satisfaction garauntee. Kind Regards, Bernadette
Hi Zona, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please try Special Cleansing Gel as a non drying cleanser. Essential Cleansing Solution is oil rich and not ideal for acne skin. Be sure to follow with a hydrating moisturizer like Active Moist. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Dear Shay, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It sounds like you are dehydrated. Essential Cleansing Solution is oil rich and will do nothing for dehydrated skin and might make you break out more. Instead, try Special Cleansing Gel. It will deep clean without over drying. use the size of a pea with lots of water. You can also mix Skin Hydrating Booster into Active Moist. Skin Hydrating Booster is a hydrating, oil-free serum. Kind Regards, The Dermalogica team
