Hi there, I'm 24 and have normal skin not too oily or not too dry. However, recently I have been getting pimples on my chin, around my nose and between my eye brows. I also have been getting blind pimples, overall thought I have pretty good skin. I year ago my skin got bad so I now wash my face morning and night with a cleansing gel, the tone with a sweet clensing lotion and use an oil fee mosturiser from another brand but think it's time for a change. Would this product be suitable or am I better off going for something stronger with salicylic acid?

Georgia

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Special Cleansing Gel morning and night. Use Sebum Clearing Mask 3 times a week. Use Daily Microfoliant once a day. Try Active Moist at night and Oil Free Matte SPF 30 in the morning. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I have false eyelashes. Will this harm them? Is it oil free?

Lindsey

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, this can be used on the eye area even with extensions. Use the size of a pea with lots of water and make sure it goes from a clear gel to a white foam. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Hi, I have bought this product to use as part of my cleanse, exfoliate, tone and moisturise routine. I usually only do this routine at night and was wondering are you supposed to cleanse tone and moisturise twice a day or just at night ?

Chloe

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, you should cleanse, tone and moisturize morning and night. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Hello, I have been using the Dermalogica Ultra calming cleanser since the start of the year but i have found that when I have used it AM and PM, my skin is quite dry around my blemishes/spots, would you suggest that I switch to the special cleansing gel? I just use the cleanser at night now and a cream cleanser in the AM so my skin is better but the ultra is soon to run out so hoping for another product. Thanks Melissa

Mel

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I personally like to use Ultra Calming Cleanser in the morning and Special Cleansing Gel at night. :) Kind Regards, Bernadette

You only need the size of a pea, and its safe to use over the eyes. It is for oily, normal, or combination skin. You can use this morning and night.

what is the shelf life for the special cleansing gel

ary

Hello, Products containing SPF and Acne actives will have an expiration date on the bottle. Once the product reaches the date stamped on the packaging it should no longer be used, otherwise the shelf life for unopened products is about 2-3 years. All other products have an open jar symbol, which is the diagram drawing of a jar with lid and a number in the jar. Most commonly used is 24 M. This means that once opened, the product may be used up to 24 months. This does not mean however that the product may not have changed in smell, texture or even efficacy it only means that it is SAFE to use based on stability data which differs from product to product but in the majority of cases is 24-36 months. We hope this addresses your concerns. Thanks for your inquiry and interest in Dermalogica. Sincerely, Bernadette

Bernadette

I have mildly oily skin but after a shower ect my face feels dry. I have been using special cleansing gel or dermal clay cleaner and Active moist but I suffer from breakouts that are deep under the skin spots that appear more like lumps with no head. what product would you recommend to prevent the breakouts?

Lucy

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Breakout Control is an acid-free spot treatment that is non-drying. However, it is very effective. Apply a thin, clear layer to breakouts. Use it under moisturizer, morning and night. Kind Regards, Bernadette
