Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel: Product Review – Blogmas Day 20

I have been using the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel for over a year now and it has become a staple in my skincare routine. Dermalogica is an Australian cruelty free skincare brand that has a great range of simple, effective products. This cleanser is my go to cleanser.

I use this cleanser every morning. It is soap free which means it doesn’t strip my skin of its moisture. It has a light lavender fragrance that I find calming in the morning. But it doesn’t contain any artificial fragrance so it is not too strong.


The texture of the cleanser is gel like. It does foam a little once massaged into the face. I find it very gentle but effective at removing dirt and oils, and even makeup. It has never made me break out. In fact, I think it has helped with any spots by being so effective at cleansing my face while not aggravating my skin at all.


I bought the 500ml bottle around a year ago and it is still going strong. You don’t need a lot of product to get a good cleanse. The 500ml bottle cost $77AUD, which has turned out to be good value for money. It can be bought online at a few sites or from the Dermalogica website.


I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a simple, gentle, effective, cruelty free cleanser good for sensitive skin. Have you used this product before? What did you think?

Thanks for reading, Christina xo
