This ranks as a good way to prepare facial skin for shaving, provided you use it gently. This cleansing scrub contains rounded silica beads which are strongly preferred to walnut shells or other rough abrasives (though it would be better if the cleansing agent was sodium LAURETH rather than LAURYL sulfate). It rinses clean and removes surface oils that can impede a close shave. This is recommended for normal to oily skin. The tiny amount of grapefruit oil is not cause for concern, but would be if this were a cleanser, only because the user would apply it around the eye area, too.

Brand Overview

Dermalogica At-A-Glance

According to company history, Dermalogica products came into being because founder Jane Wurwand could not find a spa-oriented skin-care line that met her criteria. She was dismayed that so many skincare lines aimed at the aesthetics market had products that contained alcohol, artificial colors, fragrance, mineral oil, and lanolin, ingredients he believed had a well-documented history of problems. That's true for fragrance and alcohol (and artificial colors to a lesser extent), but mineral oil and lanolin have no documented history of causing skin problems.

The line is positioned as a no-nonsense, no frills take on skincare, with clinically-inspired packaging that does protect its beneficial ingredients from light and air. Speaking of ingredients, Dermalogica does include a lot of beneficial ones in its skincare, though there are a number of formulas in the line that also make the misstep of including potentially-irritating fragrance ingredients.
