Dermalogica - Special Cleansing Gel


There’s a reason Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel has earned a reputation as a cult product: the gentle soap-free cleanser effectively clears away makeup, oil, grime and product build-up from skin, leaving it refreshed and glowing.

While other cleansers can leave your face feeling tight or stripped of its natural moisture, Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel features a unique blend of ingredients that nourish your complexion while removing excess oil, sloughing away dead skin cells and protecting against environmental pollutants.

This best-selling cleanser is mild enough to use every day. Better yet, it’s suitable for almost all skin types (very dry or very oily skin types may want to try something targeted to these skin conditions).

Key benefits

Soap can be harsh on delicate facial skin, which is why Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel was developed to be completely soap free. However, it does still work up to a light, creamy lather when gently massaged into skin with water, thanks to naturally foaming quillaja saponaria (soapbark tree), which also has cleansing and water-binding properties. Its soothing ingredients make Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel ideal for the sensitive skin on the face. Balm mint offers antibacterial properties as well as reducing inflammation, while anti-inflammatory lavender oil detoxifies skin – and both plant ingredients offer calming benefits, leaving your complexion feeling soft, supple, nourished and fresh while protecting the skin’s natural barrier and moisture. Use in the morning as the first step of your skincare routine to wake up skin and again at night to dissolve the day’s debris and melt away makeup with ease.
