As someone who is now in esthetician school, as you can imagine I have tried a lot of products. This one however did an awesome job on my skin. Usually it takes longer to see results but I definitely see improvement just since the month I have been using it.
I absolutely love this product! I purchased it after trying it out as part of a kit I bought. From the first time I used it, I knew it was like nothing else I've ever used. My skin look glowing, clear and soft. I looked like I just had a professional facial. What I didn't expect, was that it would completely clear up my perioral dermatitis! I've had it literally for a year and a half from stress. My dermatologist had me on antibiotics and creams and nothing worked. It's been terribly frustrating. This cream exfoliant began to clear up my stubborn dermatitis after the first use. I use it three times a week now and it's 99.9% gone. I hope this helps anyone else with perioral dermatitis.
I used it in a wet face after cleansing twice a week and left for 10 minutes after that my skin feel good soft and clean.It really works clearing the dead skin and dirt.Its on of the most have item in my skin care routine.
I like how this helps smooth my skin and helps control my oily skin without over drying my skin like most drugstore products do. I'm kind of weird, I don't experience the tingly feeling it says I wish I did lol makes me feel like it's working more but I know it's working despite not having the tingly feeling.
This is a gamechanger for me. I've always exfoliated with harsh products thinking I had to really scrub to get my acne prone skin really clean. Now I know that you can use enzymes to exfoliate that are not abrasive, hence the gentle part of the label. But you really should be sure to use a sample before buying this because it is really potent stuff. When I put the product on, it feels tingly at first, which are the enzymes doing their work. It's powerful and I can see why others who have more sensitive skin might find this product aggravating their skin. Test it out first, and hopefully you'll have the same experience as me, which was fabulously exfoliated skin! I also like mixing it with sebum clearing mask or the clay cleanser for a multitasking mask effect.
Comments about gentle cream exfoliant:
I have sensitive, oily skin. This product does wonders for controlling oil and reducing my pore size. I use as instructed on the bottle. Worth every penny.
I can't stop raving about this exfoliant! I had a ton of acne, but now by using this twice a week, my acne and breaking out has now been controlled and is diminishing!
This product has dual action: exfoliant and masque. And best part is contains the most active yet gentle exfoliant to refined and retexturized skin in max 15 minutes! So practical and time saver, perfect for "mini-facial" or when your skin need "instant" TLC.
Thank you Dermalogica
Easy to use. Immediate result. Tingle is not uncomfortable. Very pleased with my smooth and glowing skin.
Hi, I got my face mapped the other week and got recommended the gentle cream exfoliant and I have oily/normal skin...... I used this product once and the next morning my cheeks felt really tight, dry and sore so I went and looked in the mirror and my cheeks were very red...... I normally would wake up and have to wash all the oil off my face but that morning all I wanted to do was layer moisturiser on my face... the next day my face was even more sore and I started to peel and I really don't know what to do.

Q:Hi, I'm 37 with combination skin and concerned about dullness and fine lines. I used this with the normal/dry kit and loved it. I want to buy full sized products next, but I don't know if I should get this or the Daily Superfoliant or the Daily Microfoliant. I know they could be used together, but I can only afford to buy one exfoliating product. Which one would you suggest if I had to pick just one and why? Thank you!
Q:Should I apply this to my face after I clean and dry my skin as a mask or wet my face and rub it in?
Q:I have freckles which I really love, is it possible that this product will remove them?
Q:Can I use this daily? I have been for a few weeks and want to make sure long term it wont make matters or my acne worse, so far it hasn't been!
