When I found out that the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel would be joining the list of Beautyfix products this season, I experienced what can only be described as an emotion beyond excitement. I’m a pretty basic product user, my beauty routine is bare bones, and unlike some of my peers, eye creams, serums and masks just don’t do it for me. Give me a great face wash, moisturizer and some makeup remover and I am a happy girl. Which is why I was so ecstatic over the addition of the Special Cleansing Gel- it’s rumored to be one of the best non-fuss and all around amazing products out there.
Dermalogica receives tons of love and rave reviews from the press, celebrities, blogs and my coworkers. I’ve tried a few of the Dermalogica products before and really enjoyed them (the makeup remover is the best!) but hadn’t had the pleasure of trying the Special Cleansing Gel until a few weeks ago. And an obsession is born.
The Special Cleansing Gel is so mild and effective at the same time, removing impurities without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance. It lathers quickly, removes the majority of my makeup and doesn’t irritate my skin at all- on the contrary, my skin actually seems refreshed after I use it due to the anti-inflammatory balm mint. It’s a face wash that can be used twice a day with no problem or fear of drying out and it is light enough that there is no residue or greasy feeling. Plus, I haven’t had one zit!
The only downside? My boyfriend has also decided he is obsessed with it. My supply is quickly diminishing.
