Essential Cleansing Solution

derma-essential-cleansing-84oz

 

WHAT IS IT

A creamy cleanser that is great for nourishing and conditioning dry skin. It gently lifts impurities from the skin with vitamins and plant extracts which maintain the skin’s moisture balance.

WHO SHOULD USE IT

This is geared towards dry and prematurely aging skin. Essential Cleansing Solution is packed with rosemary and lemon extracts to refresh tired skin, safflower to soften and condition your skin’s texture, and vitamins C and E to fight free radicals.
With its creamy texture, using a non-foaming cleanser can take a bit to get used to but if it is right for your skin type I guarantee you’ll never miss the foam after your first week!
If you live in an area with cold, dry winters this will be Jesus in a bottle! Even with my oily skin type my skin became extremely dry in the New England winters I’ve endured. I compensated with a heavier moisturizer instead but using a moisturizing cleanser like this could have eliminated my dryness just as easily!

HOW TO USE IT

After Precleanse removal, with wet hands and a damp face, take an almond-sized amount and massage into the skin with upward strokes. Make sure to concentrate on areas of excess dryness. Remove with warm water and the Sponge Cloth, sponges, or a facial towel.

Sponge Cloth

18686020

WHAT IS IT

The Sponge Cloth is an amazing tool- its much more than a face towel! Made from alcohol molecules (yes, alcohol fabric!) this tool will aid your removal of any dermalogica product without giving bacteria a place to grow. Because it is not made from any natural fibers, bacteria can not find a place to hide or grow- keeping your skin care routine free from contamination by bacteria riddled face towels.

WHO SHOULD USE IT

The Sponge Cloth is for all skin types! Its gentle enough to use on acne and sensitive skin and strong enough to grab onto any product for a thorough removal!

HOW TO USE IT

Fresh out of the packaging this hot little number will need to be rinsed thoroughly. You’ll notice its amazingly soft texture right away! Once you’re done using it for the day I suggest to rinse it with some anti-bacterial soap or one of the foaming cleansers if you use one- skin clearing wash works best.
Make sure to designate a special place to hang this where it won’t be disturbed until you need it again. When the Sponge Cloth dries it also hardens (which also helps fight off bacteria). This great tool can also go through your washing machine! Just be sure not to add it to a load with fabric softener or bleach!
This cloth is also biodegradable, so it will need to be replaced from time to time. Dermalogica is all about making things earth friendly so this will begin to tear and degrade after prolonged use. Its suggested to get a new one every 6 months but I’ve had mine for 5 months now and its showing no signs of wear!

Dermal Clay Cleanser

dermal-clay-cleanser-161-9

 

WHAT IS IT

Made to fight excess oil production, this cleanser is great for anyone with mild acne! Clay and calming botanicals clear out oil and calm breakouts all while getting your skin as clean as can be!

WHO SHOULD USE IT

This is defiantly only for oily skin types. The clay and other active ingredients all battle over oil production and refine pores.

Bentonite and Kaolin clay absorb oil from the skin while physically clearing congestion. Sage and cucumber calm the skin and are backed up by menthol that gives your skin a cool feeling- all of which are key to not irritating acne breakouts, decreasing inflammation, and ultimately clearing acne away sooner. Sambucus, ivy, and lemon also work as natural astringents that also help gently refine your skin’s texture. This is a great cleanser that will remove excess oil and help lock in water based moisture into your skin when using a good regimen!

I recommend this for someone who suffers from grade 1-2 acne. If you’re unfamiliar with the 4 grades of acne you can find more information here:

HOW TO USE IT

After Precleanse removal, with wet hands and a damp face, take a large almond-sized amount and massage into the skin with upward strokes. This can also be left on for 5 minutes before rinsing as a ‘mini masque’. Remove with warm water and the Sponge Cloth, sponges, or a facial towel. If you are an acne sufferer I highly recommend investing in a Sponge Cloth or professional grade facial towels, the softness of these fabrics will not aggravate breakouts like a rough hand towel will and keep inflammation down, allowing it to heal (and disappear!) sooner.
