Great results

I have been using daily. Skin integrity looks much improved and makeup looks so much better now. Compliments on my skin since use. Only complaint is travel size was unavailable when I ordered full size. I like to stay consistent with my skin care when traveling. That was my disappointment.

So far so good

Been only using this cleanser for a couple days but so far I like it. I need something a little more hydrating with anti aging benefits.

Great cleanser, use it sparingly

5

I've been using this cleanser for a few years now and I love it. Recently, I noticed that it was drying my face out a bit, so I switched from using it every day to using 2-3 times a week. I alternate it with the Essential Cleansing Solution.

Acne prone and oily skin-not for me

This product works well but it isn't for someone with acne-prone skin or oily skin. For this reason, I have switched to the acne face wash. I still continue to use some of the other AgeSmart products for lines, etc.

I am 32 years old. When should I begin the age line? Thanks!

Rachael

Hello Rachael, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. It is your preference. Antioxidant Hydramist and Dynamic Skin Recovery are great places to start. You may also like Daily Superfoliant. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is this product safe to use while pregnant?

Sarina

Hello Sarina, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product contains 5% Lactic Acid which will exfoliate and brighten the skin. It is safe to use during pregnancy. However, it is not ideal for sensitive or reactive skin. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I am currently using special cleansing gel and i really like It . But i do feel like i could use some extra exfoliation. Do you think this would be a good replacement? Also is this safe to use to remove my eye makeup?

Kierstie

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can Double Cleanse with Precleanse Special Cleansing Gel to remove makeup. They are both safe for the eyes. You can use Daily Microfoliant to exfoliate the skin. Please do not use exfoliants on the eye area. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Can you use this product if you're pregnant?

Jessica

Hello Jessica, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product does not contain Salicylic Acid or retinol and is therefore safe to use during pregnancy. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi. Is this cleaner gel (creates a foam) or cream based? Thanks

Laurien

Hello Laurien, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Resurfacing Cleanser is a creamy cleanser. It does not foam. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Just getting started on the age smart line and not having a lot of time to spend in the morn/night, what are the most important products to buy and to use in my daily skin care routine? I know all the products are exceptional! Thanks :)

Lisa

Hi Lisa, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can start off with Skin Resurfacing Cleanser, Antioxidant Hydramist and Skin Smoothing Cream. Come back for a masque and SPF. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I discovered this cleanser (love it!) around the same time my dermatologist gave me a prescription for Retin A. So as not to overdo it, and because I am new to using both these products, I use them on alternate nights. However, I get very dry and flaky skin on the night and next morning after using the skin resurfacing cleanser, which wasn't happening when I was testing it out before I got the Retin A. My question is whether it's bad to be using these products at the same time or if I just need an adjustment period? I'm 43 and don't have much early aging. I don't want to irritate my skin and cause any permanent damage if these two products together (but on alternate days) is too harsh. Thanks!

Laura

Hello Laura, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Resurfacing Cleanser is a treatment cleanser that contains 5% Lactic Acid. I do not recommend using this exfoliating cleanser with retinol. In fact, no exfoliants should be used with any type of retinol or retin-A, or sensitization can occur. I recommend using one or the other, but I do not recommend using both Skin Resurfacing Cleanser and Retin A together, even on alternate nights. If you really like Skin Resurfacing Cleanser, Essential Cleansing Solution is an alternative option. It is rich, creamy, nourishing and ideal for skin that wants to prevent aging. It will not sensitize your skin if you are using retin A either. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I've been using this cleanser for about a week and a half now. I use it twice a day and use it with the multi active toner and intensive moisture balance. Once or twice a week, I'll alternate using my breakout control and pure bright serum. My skin is smoother but I have noticed small breakouts on the bottom half of my face and dry peeling around my mouth and chin. Could this be my skin getting used to the cleanser, bringing the break outs to the surface and getting rid of any dead skin? Should I continue my normal regimen to see if this stops or should I use the cleanser less?

Samantha

Hello Samantha, Thank you for being a Dermalogica customer. Skin Resurfacing Cleanser contains 5% Lactic Acid. It may be causing dehydration around your mouth and chin. Regarding the breakouts, Intensive Moisture Balance is oil rich. You might prefer a lighter weight moisturizer like Skin Smoothing Cream. Rest assured, it is still very hydrating. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Can this cleanser be used with financea azealic acid foam, 15% (used for the treatment of rosacea)?

Terri

Hi Terri, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Resurfacing Cleanser is not recommended for sensitive, red skin. Instead, you may prefer Ultra Calming Cleanser. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I am age 50, with water- dry skin condition. All the while i am using Essential Cleaning Solution for day and night everyday. But now, i am planning to switch to Age Smart Resurfacing Cleanser, is there any advice for my skin condition?

Ch'ng

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If your skin is dehydrated, you would benefit most from Special Cleansing Gel, Antioxidant Hydramist, and Skin Smoothing Cream. Kind Regards, Bernadette
