REVIEW: Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel

Finding the perfect cleanser for your face can often be one of the hardest things to do beauty-wise. Some are too greasy, too soapy, too oily and then finally (hopefully), after feeling a little like Goldilocks, you find the cleanser that is just right.

When I visited the Dermalogica Head Office, I sat down with beauty therapist Amy to have my face mapped, with some surprising results. It turns out that while I am prone to hormonal breakouts and a bit of congestion in my t-zone, my skin is otherwise quite dry. That makes my skin 'combination' - that tricky region between normal, oily and dry. It makes skincare a bother because the product to fix your oily forehead, wont work on your dry cheeks, and vice versa.

Dermalogica comes to my facial cleansing rescue with their Special Cleansing Gel. A gentle product that cleans the grime, all while maintaining the delicate natural balance of my skin.

Yes, it is a foaming cleanser, but don't be put off. This is one of the first foaming cleansers I have used that doesn't make my face feel tight and uncomfortable. The other great advantage is you only need the tiniest amount because it foams up like crazy. I've been using it for more than a month now, and I have barely made a dent in my 500ml bottle.

A 5 cent piece dot of product makes all this!
My skin is much more balanced since using this every day, no massive swings from breakouts to flaky skin. My pores are clearer and I can see the difference!
BEST NEWS: If you purchase the 500ml pump at the moment, you will get a small bottle of PreCleanse and a Gentle Cleansing Cloth free. Who doesn't love a freebie?
