Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel Review

Hello beauties,

A regular CTM regime is compulsory for healthy skin; and selecting a perfect cleanser for a specific skin type can be a tedious job especially with so many brands popping up with irrational varieties every other day. After my horrible experience with Clinique products, I was really scared to try out anything new; but things changed drastically in the near past. I had already mentioned about my mini Dermologica haul in my last article and today I am back with a review on Dermologica special cleansing gel. Scroll down to check out more.

My experience with Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel :

Packaging: The cleansing gel comes in a classic white bottle with grey top that bears a press open white dispensing opening. This type of opening is ideal in controlling the amount of product; it dispenses the exact amount of the gel required for one wash without causing any additional wastage. The packaging is simple yet elegant but I feel this bigger bottle is quite bulky for travel; well one can any day pick up it’s travel pack.

Consistency and smell:As you can make out that this is a “cleansing gel”. The cleanser is a thick transparent clear gel that foams beautifully even in a pea size quantity enough to cover the entire face and neck area. Though the product claims to be fragrance free it mildly smells of refreshing mint.

Results: I use this cleanser twice a day. A pea-size amount is enough to cover my face and neck. The product produces rich and smooth foam that cleanses my face beautifully and successfully removes out dirt and impurities effectively. Post wash my face looks brighter and cleaner and I surely feel refreshed thanks to the Mint, Lavender and Quillaja extracts . When used in proper quantity, my face never feels tight or dry but if a tad bit extra amount is used – it might feel a bit tight and stretchy!

Now coming to its main action; Clinique product trials had left my skin in a bad condition, I had this rigid reoccurring pimples at different places on my face. But thankfully, Drmologica’s special cleansing gel took care of it beautifully after a month’s usage I have finally bid a bye to those pimples! Sigh! My skin finally found relief and is stable these days. The cleansing gel does act on blackheads, pimples and impure pores and helps in controlling as well as eradicating these skin conditions on regular usage.I have seen my blackheads vanishing recently so I am really happy with these observations.The cleansing gel is suitable to all skin types.It never caused me any breakout nor disturbed my skin in any way.

I know the price is very steep for this particular product, but trust me, you require very little amount of it for one use; I have already used it for one month yet I am left with more than half the bottle and I believe this will last me for roughly 4 months with regular usage. Overall, I am really happy with this product.
