I would buy it again


I use it morning and night. I always do the double cleanse to get extra smooth skin. Slowly clearing all the pimples i have on my face



Really Disappointed


Honestly since purchasing, my skin has been breaking out everyday. At first I thought it was just a purge but after almost 2 months of using this product, my skin is even worse than before I started using this cleanser. The pimples I am getting are also causing scaring which is really upsetting. Will not be using this any longer



great for clearing acne and great scent!


this product works like magic! it cleared my skin up and i have combination oily skin and prone to acne. this product is super great i would highly recommend to any age group!

Love but want to change bottle design


I love this product and use it everyday. It doesn't irritate my skin and leaves it feeling very refreshed. However, I am extremely disappointed with the design of the bottle. The cap manages to constantly leak and lots of product is often lost. This is expensive!!! I want to utilize all of it. It is basically impossible to travel with, and I'm constantly loosing product in the cap. Please change this design. I think all of the bottles should be more functional.

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.

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.

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
