This is a gentle cleansing gel that I use on a daily basis. A little goes a long way so it is actually less expensive in the long run than buying any old cleanser from the drug store. It is soap-free and perfect for those who tend to break out after washing their face. It is not a deep cleanser but it works well with an exfoliant such as the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. The Special Cleansing Gel contains soothing lavender and mint without artificial colors or fragrances. It does leaves the skin a little dry so follow with a good moisturizer.
