Cleansers at Dermal Essence

At Dermal Essence, we have 7 key cleansers but today we would like to tell you all about the benefits of our versatile Wash Cream.

Cleansers play a crucial part in any skincare regime.  For one thing, cleansing at night removes grime, dust, bacteria, make-up, perspiration and creams.  Cleansing in the morning regenerates the skin while removing the metabolic waste that develops during the night.

In addition to all these benefits, cleansing prepares your skin to receive your chosen skin care product.

So it goes without saying that no treatment is complete without the right cleanser.  And with so many to choose from – gel, cream, foam or milk – it can be difficult to find the right one to suit your skin or lifestyle.

So Which Skin Type for Wash Cream.

Wash Cream is a versatile cleanser and make-up remover for excessively dry sensitised and barrier function impaired skins.

Wash cream effectively removes, dust and impurities and leaves the skin feeling smooth and comfortable. I find this cleanser to be cool and soothing to parched skins.


This cleanser works well when massaged in circular movements over the face and can be safely massaged around the eye contour area and splashed with warm water to remove. You may find Dr Spiller Sponges immersed in luke-warm water help to remove the cleanser from the face but do not use it around the eye area.

Did you know Dr Spiller Wash Cream emulsified with water makes an excellent shaving medium for Men’s skin?

After using the cleanser pat your skin dry and follow up with Dr Spiller Sensitive Toner and Moisturiser.

Pro Tip:

A double cleanse may be required to remove Heavy Makeup
