Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash
Foaming cleanser helps clear oils and bacteria on breakout-prone skin. Slough off impurities and dead skin cells with salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid that stimulates natural exfoliation to help clear clogged follicles and prevent future breakout activity. Naturally antiseptic extracts of balm mint, eucalyptus and tea tree help eliminate breakout-causing bacteria and congestion as menthol and camphor help cool inflammation. Skin is left clean and prepped for optimal absorption of MediBac Clearing treatment ingredients. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours.
Availability: Dermalogica skin centres and Sorbet salons.
What we say:
Although I’ve never had acne, my skin went through a phase where it was very oily and I was getting regular breakouts. After a consultation with a Dermalogica skincare consultant before my facial, I decided to invest in some of the brand’s products, this being the cleanser I chose. I was reluctant to spend so much on a face wash, but let me tell you – the 250ml bottle lasted me almost 6 months! It’s incredible how little of the liquid you actually need, as it foams so easily and you only need a drop or two to cover your skin.
I could definitely see an improvement in my skin during the time I used this, however, at the time I think I need a higher concentration of salicylic acid (this cleanser contains 0.5%), and as a result my skin didn’t clear up completely. I could see that it literally removed all my make-up and my skin felt really refreshed after cleansing. I love the product – it smells fresh and clean, the packaging is great as you can’t mess or spill and like I mentioned, it lasted for ages. If your skin needs this type of cleanser then I would definitely recommend making the investment as it did not disappoint!
