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....My long-time gray clay facial cleanser was discontinued, so I decided to try this Dermalogica one after some research. ...It’s hard to find a good gray clay cleanser

This texture (like a lightweight whipped gel-cream)is a bit different from all my other cleansers but I like how it makes my skin feel. I thought this would be a bit drying because of the kaolin clay but it had actually been very hydrating for my oily combination skin. ...Very deep clean. It could be the clay in it. But super smooth and soft. I’ve learned my skin prefers gentle cleansers and since this provided a deep clean I would only use like once a week if anything.
