Will It Work?
Dermalogica has a good reputation in the skin care world and has been making great products to help improve the skin for years. This is a great daily cleanser because the ingredients aren’t super strong, but still effectively deep clean the skin. We all want exfoliating results daily, but know that we shouldn’t be using an exfoliator regularly. This is a good in between, the clay is gritty without scratching the skin. It works to really cut the grease and oil from skin for users. That is proven. It cleans completely effectively. It is the aftermath for some users where things tend to go “wrong”. Some users complained that the formula was just too drying at the end of the day for their skin type. Those users with really greasy skin thought the product not only cleaned effectively, but also treated break outs and improved complexion on a long-term basis.
If you don’t have really oily skin I just don’t think this is a great investment for you to make into your skin care routine. If you have money to blow and want to use it occasionally for a deep clean, I think that is fien to keep it in your skin care arsenal. If you do have oil slicked skin, this could be your holy grail daily cleanser. It really does absorb the grease and deep clean pores. The ingredients are non-toxic and safe so it is an A+ product as far as it’s make up.
