facial scrub cleansers
“I'm very particular about facial cleansers, and have had a really hard time finding an exfoliating cleanser my skin would agree with”
natural cleansers
“i love this cleanser so so much! it’s so perfect for my oily skin”
clay cleanser
“It doesn't strip your skin or dry you out or anything you'd assume a "clay" would do. I love it. And when I want to exfoliate I mix in a little of the dermalogica microfoliant in with the cleanser with my hands, because the microfoliant alone is too much for me now too. 10 out of 10”
nose cleansers
“Around my forehead and nose is oily and rest of my face is always dry. The texture is very light and a little bit goes a long way”
safe cleansers
“If you follow the recommendations for cleansers (works best with more fluid cleansers, avoid anything with abrasives or gritty pastes) it gets your skin super clean”
hydrating cleansers
“Skin feels good after using the Dermatologica cleanser. I have really sensitive and dry skin so I have to be careful with which cleansers I use”
fresh cleaners
“A bit on the dey side for me so will need to switch up less humid weather. Very clean, fresh smelling and feeling. Live the lack of perfumes”
pimple cleansers
“I see somewhat of an improvement in my skin but this definitely doesn’t solve all my problems. If I do break out from hormonal acne, it does dry up the spots well enough”
