DERMA E Hydrating Gentle Cleanser

It’s tough to find a good cleanser when you have dry skin: deep cleaners can be too drying, while gentle formulas don’t always remove every trace of makeup and dirt. Well, you might want to call us Goldilocks...because we’ve finally found a cleanser that’s just right. After just one use, our skin was left squeaky clean and hydrated.

Sqeaky clean!

I love everything about this cleanser, from the size of the sample, to the sqeaky clean feel it gives my skin.
Is not drying. Leaves skin clean and refreshed.
Definite must have.

I wasn't big on the scent, but I saw a difference with the first wash. Great! I've been breaking out and haven't figured what's triggering it. This product didn't agrivate my skin just did it's thing.

Great for every day

This product was gentle on my face and still left me super clean. Of course I still had to moisturize but I didn't have to go running for it. Some cleansers leave you feel in clean but bone dry. This one had just enough moisturizing properties for me. I like it and would buy it again.

The smell!

I greatly dislike it. My boyfriend loves it. Plus it's a great cleanser, so it stays. Strongly scented with what, to me, smells like blueberries, it lets you know it's there and doing it's thing. I used this all winter, and continue to in the summer. I really do recommend this cleanser and the lotion of the same type, plus most Derma e products because they really do work and they are friendly to your skin and the environment. However, just expect a strong scent. This worked great to remove my makeup, but left behind enough moisture that my hands and face didn't feel violated and desert-dry afterward.

Everything the product summary says and everything that is written on the bottle is absolutely true. I wear A LOT of makeup - to give you an idea: a full face of foundation, powder, concealer, highlighter, blush, eye shadow, colored brow gel, winged gel eyeliner, mascara, lipstick and lip pencil (don't worry - I use natural colors and am an expert blender so that people can never tell how many face products I use). My nighttime routine is usually to dissolve all of it by massaging either extra virgin olive oil or cold cream all over my face, wiping that off, then washing with a cleanser or moisturizing bar. I'm usually left with raccoon eyes and depending on the cleanser I use, my face might be squeaky clean but tight and dry.

With ONE pump and no pre-dissolving, this DERMA-E cleanser removed ALL of it, no raccoon eyes and my face felt supple afterwards. Not super moisturized like I just put on cream or anything, but soft and supple and not dry at all. One pump. And usually face washes that are those sort of clear gel formulas work well for washing away all of the face product but leave me feeling as though I've cleansed with an anti-bacterial handsoap. This didn't.

I almost didn't buy this product due to the lack of reviews, but I'm glad that I took a chance and super glad to leave this raving review! I've only used the product 3 times and I think I have found my new cleanser. It's a love story!
