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!
