Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best facial cleanser This is by far the best facial cleanser I have ever used before. I’ve been using Dermalogica for over a year now and I swear by this product. It helps balance the oil production in your skin, gentle enough to use on sensitive skin. Your skin will not feel stripped or dry after washing. Fragrance free. I’m currently on prescription Retina A and it’s gentle enough for my sensitive skin. It’s a light weight gel cleanser so a-little bit goes a long way. I bought the 8.oz bottle and it lasted me almost a year. I like to double cleanse, so I use the precleanse balm(oil) first and then use a small amount of the special mixed with warm water and a wash cloth and it works wonders it. Purchase the travel size and try it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cleanser! I LOVE this cleanser. I was using the ultra calming (still use that sometimes in the morning) but this one is one step up from that because it also removes makeup! And I also love how it foams up it makes you feel like you’re getting a deeper cleanse.
