  • Love this product
    I cannot empasize enough how wonderful dermalogica products are. Fantastic! Shipping quick and easy.
  • Fave cleanser
    My skin feels a lot fresher, and not so heavy after using this product - will definitely be purchasing again as I've seen promising results in only a week!
  • Great product
    I have very sensitive skin, and this product is great - I can really feel a difference in my skin when I use this product - feels much softer and also a lot more moisture in it...
  • Excellent
    So calming on my skin feels so nice and soft
  • Great cleanser
    I absolutely love this product! So gentle on my skin and doesn’t leave my face feeling dry afterwards which I love!!
  • Definitely worth trying
    Loving it so far hoping it continues to maintain my skin!
  • Great for sensitive skin
    Great gentle cleanser that doesn't leave skin irritated at all. Also great value for money as a lot goes a long way
  • Great cleanser
    This is a great cleanser for my sensitive skin and a little goes a long way
  • Calmed down
    With this weather being very interchangeable at the moment, I needed something to help with my sensitivity. This has calmed my face down a lot. Great product. It does exactly what it says it will. A great asset to my routine.
  • Ultra calming cleanser
    Great stuff! My skin loves it. I purchased the largest size and it has been used everyday for 1 year and I still have some left. Love how far a little goes and love the pump.
  • Great for sensitive skin
    As I have aged my skin has become more reactive to products and prone to areas of redness. I have been using the ultra calming cleanser for approximately 18 months. It leaves my skin soft and clean with no irritation and reduces any areas of redness making them less noticeable, I like that only a small amount of cleanser is needed to wash my face and neck, resulting in the bottle lasting several months.
  • so far so good
    Have been using this cleanser for about a week now and so far I’m really enjoying it! Takes off my makeup effectively and doesn’t leave my skin red and hot like a lot of other cleansers do, defiantly calming!
  • Perfect for sensitive skin
    Have only just discovered this cleanser. Had previously used a well known natural brand only to find that it was actually the source of my skin redness and dryness. Approached a beauty salon who recommended the Dermalogica ultra-sensitive cleanser. After one week the redness has gone and my skins back to how it was 4 months ago! Lovely product.
  • Great, gentle product
    Best cleanser I've ever used, leaves skin feeling clean and soft. Have had problems in the past with my face been irritated and red with other products yet this seems to calm it down really well. Also good for removing makeup.
  • Ultra calming cleanser
    Love how this product not only removes my makeup but like it says in its name, keeps my skin calm as it normally goes red in different climates.
    Recommend to anyone with combination, redness and other sensitive skin problems.
  • So gentle, so effective and so calming
    It's been years since I've used Dermalogica to cleanse my face, and I started using Ultracalming Cleanser again recently due to an eczema flare-up. It really does calm my skin, removes all traces of makeup - even stubborn stuff - and it hasn't irritated my sore eczema skin at all. I'm so relieved to be back using this range. Thank you!
  • I love this cleanser
    I have been using this cleanser for many years now and love how it removes all my make up, including eye make up, without irritation and it makes my skin feel clean and fresh.
  • The best cleanser for sensitive skin
    I absolutely love this product! It's so gentle on sensitive skin and makes your skin feel so fresh!
  • Fantastic product
    I love this cleanser. Its gentle and soothing and removes makeup well. My skin feels lovely and refreshed after using this product. I have used this product for a number of years and wouldn't change it.
  • Great, gentle product
    I have been using this for a couple of years now and have noticed a huge difference in my skin and how calm it leaves it feeling! Also lasts a long time as well. Would highly recommend!
  • Really good stuff
    Really gentle & very effective. Love it!
  • Dermalogica Ultra Calming Cleanser
    As ever, I cannot praise this product enough.
    My ultra-sensitive skin loves it!!! So calming and yet so thorough. It whisks all the nasties away and leaves my skin smooth and calm. I highly recommend the Ultra Calming range to any person with problem or super-sensitive skin.
  • So gentle
    I love this product so much! Six weeks ago I started on a course of Roaccutane to finally deal with my adult acne. At the time I wasn't using Dermalogica, but from past experience I knew this cleanser was what I needed. I'm back using this now and it is so nice on my irritated skin. So so calming. I absolutely recommend this product.
  • awesome product
    I have been using this cleanser for years now and wouldn't change - it is perfect for my skin = I use to get blotchy and dry skin but still the odd pimple especially once a month but this product and skin care range have changed that and my skin is fantastic
    After struggling with sensitive/acne prone skin for years I switched to this product and the results I got were amazing. Its so gentle and leaves my skin soft, calm, with no redness... A little goes a long way with this stuff JUST AMAZING
  • Amazing!
    I have struggled with acne for 10 years and my skin is so sensitive sometimes even washing my face with water irritates, stings and leaves my face red and feeling like it is burning. Since using this product my skin has felt calm and soft and I do not experience the sensitivity I was before.
  • Super
    Love this cleanser. Feels good, smells good and leaves my skin feeling good.
  • can't fault it
    best cleanser ever! - perfect for all skin types especially sensitive - been using for several years now - wouldn't even consider anything else - the travel size is perfect to take away with you, and the large pump container lasts for ever - I leave mine in the shower.
  • Gentle but really cleans!
    Hitting my 40s meant my skin went through all sorts of changes. I had quite oily face since my teens, spots, white and black heads, etc. My skincare regime had always skewed towards combating the oiliness. But suddenly that all changed in my 40s and it took me a very long time to find a balance of products that would work - that would not strip and dry my skin out, nor overload it with too rich products. While trying to find this balance, my skin became sensitive - in addition to existing lines, dehydration AND oiliness! I was initially sceptical about the cleanser when it was recommended. It felt so mild on my skin. But clean, it certainly does, and does well. It leaves my skin feeling clean, calm, freshened and has helped with de-sensitising it as well. I love it!
  • Dermalogica Ultra Calming Cleanser
    This cleanser is the best yet. I have to use the ultra calming range due to skin allergies and sensitivity. I was recently given some expensive French products including moisturizer and cleanser. I tried the and it was a grave error. Once more, my skin became red and quite angry looking. So - back to my favourite Dermalogica Ultra Calming range and my skin has settled down again. I shall not make that mistake again!!
  • Great for sensitive skin
    I've spent many years trying to resolve my sensitive skin issues. It wasn't till I tried this product that my skin cleared up. Definitely gentle and calming!
  • Love this!!
    Great product, very gentle on my skin and cleanses thoroughly without drying my skin out. Would highly recommend!
  • The only face wash I'll use
    I've been using this for five years straight now and my skin is flawless. Would never change!!
  • Best cleanser ever!!
    This product is top of the line!!...iv tried so many cleansers out there and none compare to this!!...it does what it reads on the bottle!...so soothing and gentle on my sensitive skin with no redness or irritation after...iv been using this for 5 months now and I'm hooked I will never go back!!...trust me let it work on your skin you will get hooked too!
  • Best soothing cleanser ever
    I work as a chef and kitchens can change temperature and moisture levels several times a day. I was recommend the Ultra calming cleanser to help combat the effects and it is working great so far. I am looking forward to adding the barrier repair to my routine.
  • Love this cleanser!
    I have tried many products and this is by far the best cleanser. Gentle on my sensitive skin yet removes makeup well. Highly recommend it!! :)
  • Soothing
    This is a fantastic product soothing and calming. I recommend this product if you have sensitive skin.
  • Best Cleanser Ever
    Takes off all of my makeup (eyes included) at the same time yet is very gentle on my skin. Absolutely love this product!!
  • Excellent calming cleanser
    I love this cleanser, especially good if my skin is feeling dry or irritated, leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth, highly recommended!!
  • Gentle and soothing cleanser
    I really like this cleanser and have been using this for years. It is super gentle and soothing for my sensitive skin but is also very effective at removing makeup, even eye makeup. It is fragrance free which I like and I love the pump bottle. Really recommend this for anyone who wants a gentle cleanser that does not dry out your skin.
  • Love it
    I really like this produte, easy to use and gentle on the skin.
  • 5 stars!
    Very gentle but great cleansing product! My face is sensitive, prone to breakouts and dryness and this cleanser is fantastic for it!
  • Great for sensitive skin like mine that cannot handle anything else.
    Especially good for cleaning around the sensitive eye area. I have reactions to every cleanser except this type and this range.i love it and cannot live without it on my shelf!
  • Gentle yet thorough
    I was surprised how clean my skin felt after using this clenser. Sometimes less is more, and even though i don't have sensitive skin, i love the way this product works.
  • Great product
    I love this product. Any other cleanser seems to dry out my skin, however this is gentle and doesn't irritate.
  • Skin Savour
    This is perfect for my sensitive skin, as it clears up the acne without drying it out or causing irritation.
    Highly recommend.
  • Fantastic Product
    I have only just started to use this product but I love it. I have sensitive skin and this leaves my skin with no redness and feeling very soft after I have used it.
  • really lovely cleanser
    I have easily irritated skin and mild rosacea. This is the only cleanser I use and have done so for several years. Brilliant, gentle cleanser that gets all my make up off with no dry feeling afterwards....love, love, love!!
  • Gentle and calming
    I've used a number of cleansers over the years and this is the only one I trust now to cleanse my skin and leave it feeling fresh. The cleanser is not thick, it is light and easy to apply and leaves my skin feeling great. No redness or reactions.
  • Best cleanser for a fussy, sensitive skin type
    I've used a range of cleansers ranging from high-end brands to ones found in the supermarket / organic store (paraben, SLS etc free ones) in a bid to give my skin a deep, thorough clean without provoking the usual aggravations (redness, slight itchiness, flaking). This is the only cleanser that keeps my skin happy whilst giving a good clean!

  • wow
    I have only been using this product for a few days but it's totally amazing.

  • great cleanser
    best cleaner I have tried. Makes skin feel clean but not drying and face feels smooth and not itchy afterwards.
  • Love this product
    This cleanser is so amazing. I have sensitive skin and it loves this product. Easy to use daily in the shower and it doesn't dry out your skin.
  • The Very Best Cleanser on the Market
    I have used various cleansers over the years and highly recommend the Ultra Calming Cleanser. I am in the older age bracket and my skin is highly sensitive and prone to rashes. Until I commenced using Dermalogica Ultra Calming Cleanser, my skin came out in angry red patches and was often dry and tight. Since using this cleanser and associated Ultra Calming products, my skin has improved markedly.
    I am definitely a fan!
  • Great Product
    I have been using the cleanser for 7 years now and love it. Great for getting eye makeup off as well as cleansing the face and neck. Highly recommend!
  • So soft and gentle
    An old favourite I recently started using again, the ultracalming cleanser has been wonderful for getting my skin calmed after a particularly stressful few months. No stripping, easy to apply even to areas of tenderness, and can be wiped off without discomfort too. Highly recommended :)
  • excellent for sensitive eyes and rashes
    I've been using this since my skin developed chronic sensitivities, it has soothed my skin and replaced it with some much needed moisture. Very nice on the eyes….
  • So gentle, yet effective
    This is the best cleanser I have ever used. A little bit goes a long way. It is very gentle for my sensitive ageing skin, yet also effective in removing make up, and daily build up of gunk. It even takes off my mascara!
  • perfect for sensitve skin
    To be honest I didnt like this at first as I was used to using a foaming cleanser. I have grown to love this product. Great for my super sensitive skin, does not react in any way with sensitivity and redness.
  • So calming!!
    My whole family- including the children use this everyday! Love how silky it feels. Easy to use daily- leaves the face smooth and feeling fresh!
  • great product
    am loving this product and can see the results already!
  • Gentle and effective cleansing
    This is such a lovely, gentle cleanser. My skin is dry and sensitive, yet this gives me such effective cleansing without being harsh on my skin. It's my favourite!
  • Great for sensitive skin
    I have used this product for about 13 years now. It is great for my sensitive skin. It cleans it properly and remove the make up. I like to combine this product with the Daily Microfoliant a few times a week.
    This product is highly recommended.
  • Best!
    this is a gentle and healing cleanser. it is the best one for sensitive skin ever
  • A Life-saver
    This product is an absolute lifesaver. My skin is dry, prone to break outs and extremely sensitive and this cleanser is fantastic! It lasts forever making it great value and I love how it can be used with no water, fantastic for really sensitive days and for camping!
  • Long lasting
    This product goes on for ever! Very gentle but definitely cleanses thoroughly.
  • Great for post-environmental skin attacks!
    If you've read any of my other reviews you'll know you're dealing with a serious junkie!

    As well as using my essential cleansing solution I occasionally swap to this beautiful cleanser. I love this one whenever I've been traveling, been in the sun and (eek!) gotten burnt (usually avoided) or just whenever the environment has been unkind. It's gentle on my sensitive areas but still cleanses without leaving a residue!

    I highly recommend these products to anyone especially friends and family!
