Great Cleanser!!

Bought this after I got a facial and the esthetician recommended it after she used it on me. I have to say after using it 2x a day for 2 weeks I am really pleased with the results. Twice a week I use it as a mask by leaving it on 10 minutes (again the esthetician’s recommendation). I have oily skin, that is prone to break outs (although nothing major). I searched all over online to get the best price and Amazon hands down has the cheapest of this product.

GUCCI

I love this product. I have only had it for one week and already my face cleared up. It cleans my face and it feels invigorating. Its like a cream not a sudsy type and its simple. I still use the dermalogica cleaner with my clarsonic once a week and then use this everyday…Morn, Night, after workouts. Bye Bye acne!!!

Great as a mask

I have inherited large and numerous pores from my mom’s German side of the family, so I’m always looking for cleansers that help with black heads. Anything clay based is promising for that use.While this cleanser does nothing to remove dirt and makeup, that is not how I use it. I wash my face with my normal, gentle cleanser and my ProX facial brush, to remove the day’s makeup and dirt, then I apply one full pump all over my face and let that sit on my face while I finish up my shower. At the end of my shower, I gently massage the clay cleanser into my entire face, then rinse it off.Once a week, I mix a pump of this clay cleanser with a half teaspoon of Bentonite Clay and apply as a mask. I let this mask sit on my face for a half hour or so, then rinse off.Using this product as a mask has really worked to clear my pores, reducing their size and appearance, resulting in a smoother complexion and more flawless makeup application.I know that it’s expensive, but this bottle has lasted a LONG time! If you have trouble with large pores and black heads, I really recommend this product!

Second time around.

Great everyday cleanse that is not over drying and leaves face feeling fresh and clean. Safe for everyday use. I suggest using dermalogica’s moisturizer as well. I have used this before and ran out so I had to buy more.

Feel clean

This feels like it is cleaning my face, and I have experienced no irritation or over drying. Will likely continue to use daily.

broke me out

worst face wash i’ve ever used in my life. possibly the menthol irritated my face. my face never felt clean while using this. within one use i had like 15 new pimples on my face, within 2 uses i had like 30 new pimples on my face! they were itchy tiny whiteheads in clusters, and i broke out in strange places i normally never do, such as sides of face or bridge of nose, or underneath chin, or in corners of my mouth. i would NOT recommend. now looking for a way to get rid of this expensive cleanser. total crap ..

my wife must have ordered this

apparently my wife ordered this on my account so i cant give any first hand knowledge but i can say that i havent heard her complain about it so i assume she likes it… while at the same time i havent heard her praise it so i have to assume it was just okay.as far as my experience, since it was in the shower, i did use it… felt great while using it. i was pretty impressed with it, enough to try some actual real clay which was a bad choice since the actual real clay broke out my face. but this stuff seemed good… im not sure how much of it can be attributed to clay though as it just seems like a facial cream cleanser.

Favorite Dermalogica Product

This dermal clay cleanser makes your skin feel very clean. My skin looks so much better after using this product. Can’t live w/out it!

A+ from this guy with oily skin

I’m on my second bottle, and this cleanser works well for my oily complexion. I use it every day with an exfoliating glove. The only downside is the full pump gives more than you need for just your face. I have to pump it out gently to make sure it lasts long enough.

Not a miracle worker but a high quality, non-drying cleanser

I like this facial cleaner a lot, enough even to justify the relatively high price tag. This is made with green clay, and I know you are supposed to do clay masks for getting rid of blackheads if you have them like me. The problem is, I am lazy. I don’t usually feel like doing a 15 minute mask once a week. This is the perfect alternative. It seems to clean nicely whether you scrub with your fingers or a vibrating facial brush. It also has a nice tingling feeling. Has it solved all my acne problems? No, but I think it helps.

I Haven’t Seen Results

While it seems to cleanse Ok, I have not seen any reduction of oil in the t-zone, or smoothness of my skin whatsoever. That’s what I bought this product for. My skin does feel clean after use, the menthol type fresh feeling is nice after a long day. However, no change in appearance at all. In fact, used it last night before bed, also applied the dermatological over night treatment, woke up to a fresh breakout. I am only giving it two stars because I haven’t seen any of the results it promises in all the great reviews.If it had been a drugstore product I’d throw it away, but its too expensive to just throw out. I will use it but wont buy again. No results you couldn’t get with a cheap can of Noxzema.

Dermal Clay Cleanser just oK

The Dermal Clay Cleanser is just ok. Over dries my skin but I do have sensitive skin. Flakes on my skin after one week of use. Need to use every other day. Speedy shipping service from seller.

Too expensive

This didn’t help my acne any better than the cheap drugstore face washes. I don’t hate this stuff, but it isn’t effective enough for me to spend another $25 when I can get the same results for $3.

Cooling and clearing

I’m reviewing this for the product but have not purchased from Amazon. I get this at a local retailer. I’m a male, have combination, olive tone skin that isn’t sensitive or acne prone.This is not one of my main facial cleansers BUT I do like this one and would recommend it. I find that it’s very good for the summer and has a cooling effect, which does a good job of cleansing and clearing impurities.
