This has been my go to cleanser for years. I've tried others but always come back to this one. It cleanses really well but gently and does not dry out my skin. I have sensitive, combination skin that is easily irritated and dries out often. I highly recommend.

I absolutely love this cleanser. Gentle on my breakout prone and sensitive skin, yet effective. Bottle will last you a long time.

I have been using this face cleanser for years and still love it. It gently takes off all my eye makeup without having to rub too much. I use it every night with my Clarisonic facial brush and it leaves my skin squeaky clean without drying it out.

I love this cleanser. It's gentle, removes my makeup and cleans without over drying. And the bottle lasts forever.

I can't think of a reason for not choosing this product for its large size. No unpleasant scent. No irritation after rinse. It is satisfying.

Love this cleanser; takes off makeup also and takes on a small amount so bottle lasts a long time.

It is gentle but cleans well and does a great job removing makeup. I bought another cleaner to try and it doesn't come close!

This is a gentle facial cleansing gel that leaves my face feeling clean and free of residue. I've used this brand for the past 10+ years and never had a problem.

I love this gel. It really cleans my skin and it never makes dry. It'a a magic. Because most of the products make my skin dry if they are washable. I love washable ones and this is my favorites.

This is and will continue to be a repeat purchase for me - in the large bottle no less. I tried the Gentle Cleanser and wasn't excited about it. An esthetician recommended the gel cleanser as one of the most popular Dermalogica products, and I was curious enough to try it. I generally find foaming cleansers too drying for my combo face but I figured it would still be good for my husband's oily skin. The price per ounce of the large bottle isn't much more expensive than good drugstore brands, so I took a chance. The pump bottle packaging is easy to use, and is mainly why I chose the large bottle vs. the small for my first purchase. The product is a clear gel that has a light soapy scent. I use a dab the size of a pea for my face and neck. I get a mild tightness if I don't put toner on afterwards, but nothing like I usually experience with foaming cleansers. My husband also likes it and he doesn't get any tightness after cleansing with this with nothing following.
I have had some adverse reactions to skincare products, but haven't had any reactions to the 10 Dermalogica products I've tried so far.

I love the product! I have used it for 10-15 years and haven't found another cleanser that works as well! My skin feels clean but it doesn't dry it out.

I'm very pleased with this cleanser. This product removes all traces of makeup and at the same time truly cleans my skin. I rarely use a toner now since there is no makeup residue to remove after washing. I have combination skin and have not found this cleanser to be harsh or to leave my skin more oily. I'm sure this will be my every day facial cleanser for the rest of my life.

I have tried more Dermalogica products that I can list, and I have tried all of their facial cleansers except the more astringent ones for oily skin. Special Cleansing Gel is my standby product: like all of the Dermalogica products I've used, it is 'pure' in the sense that it contains no fragrances or dyes (the gel is actually clear), and it has always been kind to my sensitive skin. I use it twice a day, unless I've had a microderm or peel. Keep in mind if your complexion tends to be dry, you might need a light moisturizer at times. However, your skin will feel so clean after using this cleansing gel, you'll not want to slather on a lot of goo afterward! I hope to get a Mia 2 very soon, and I'm thinking the S.C. G. will be a good option to use with it.
