Review: Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel ★★★★
Price: $49.00+
Size: 250ml / 500ml
About: soap-free and fragrance-free foaming gel cleanser suitable for all skin types (especially for normal to oily skin). Packaged in a plastic bottle with flip lid (smaller size) and pump (larger size).
Review: Special Cleansing Gel is beautiful. Add water to the formulation and active ingredients Quillaja Saponaria and Lavender work together to gently foam the product to assist with a squeaky clean finish that removes impurities such as makeup, dirt and black heads. While Dermalogica recommends a makeup remover is used beforehand, I have used Special Cleansing Gel without a makeup remover on many occasion and the results are very impressive. It does not leave skin feeling tight or stripped of moisture BUT if not foamed up enough with water, the product can leave skin feeling tight and dry so be sure to add water because the formula loves water. Oh and one other thing: be careful if keeping the bottle in the shower as water may leak in through the lid like it did to mine which left the product watery and a little less effective (which was disappointing for an excellent product and brand).
