Face Wash & Facial Cleansers

Melt away makeup, lift stubborn impurities and remove dirt and excess sebum from the skin with our range of soap-free facial cleansers. Formulated with targeted ingredients and botanical extracts that gently nourish and hydrate your external barrier without stripping your skin of its natural oils, our cleansers and face washes  are all PH balanced to the skin and make for an essential step in your daily skincare routine. 

Cleansing the skin both morning and night will leave you with a smooth, clean, and healthy skin, allowing your toners, moisturisers, masques and serums to absorb better. Our skin is an organ of elimination, so it excretes toxins onto the surface of the skin which need to be cleansed away before they can contribute to skin issues such as blackheads, breakouts and sensitivity. We also apply makeup and sunscreens daily, which should be removed to prevent skin congestion. In addition, we produce natural oils which can cause dirt and pollution to stick to the surface. Our skin is far dirtier than we realise, which is why cleansing your skin is a fundamental step in your daily routine. 

Double cleansing is the secret to healthy, truly clean skin. The Dermalogica Double Cleanse easily removes layers of built-up make-up, products and oily debris, allowing your second cleanse to penetrate even further, for a professional level of clean. Use either PreCleanse or PreCleanse Balm for your first cleanse to melt away oily build-up, then follow with a skin specific cleanser for your second cleanse, to deep clean and create a healthy foundation for the rest of your skin care products.

Along with promoting a healthy, clear skin, cleansing helps address specific skin needs. If you experience dry patches or flakiness, you’ll find cleansing the skin locks in moisture, keeping your skin supple and hydrated for a healthy, youthful glow.

FAQs

are facial cleansers good for the skin?

Yes, as long as you use a face wash that’s designed to respect the skin’s acidic PH. Clean skin functions more efficiently, experiences fewer skin concerns and can also absorb treatment products better. Not cleaning the skin with a face wash, leaves the skin vulnerable to conditions such as breakouts, congestion, inflammation and premature skin ageing. Regardless of your skin type or main concerns, a facial cleanser is an essential part of every skincare routine. Removing all traces of makeup, pollutants, dirt, grime, and excess oil, our soap-free, PH balanced face washes gently and thoroughly cleanse the skin while preventing skin conditions.

do I need a cleanser?

Absolutely! A facial cleanser is a non-negotiable in every skincare regimen. Unlike makeup wipes that contain alcohol and drying ingredients, or soap that is alkaline and disrupts the skin’s natural acidic barrier, Dermalogica’s PH balanced, soap-free range of face washes effectively remove dirt, makeup and impurities, while respecting the skin’s barrier and prepping the skin for deeper penetration of subsequent products in your routine. 

what is the #1 facial cleanser at Dermalogica?

While we offer a broad selection of cleansers for all skin types, our soap-free Special Cleansing Gel is one of the most popular face washes . Removing impurities without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance, our best-selling foaming gel cleanses all skin conditions while rinsing away toxins and debris for a smooth and clean skin. It’s also enriched with botanicals that contain calming agents that help to balance and purify the skin. Be sure to use a small amount, gently mixed with plenty of water to create a light, bubbly foam!
