Obagi Cleansers

All about Cleansers

They’re the first step in your skincare routine, day or night! But have you ever wondered if you’re using the right cleanser? Or are you struggling to find one that is best suited for your skin type? Obagi has curated a multitude of cleansers to address ALL skin types, that effectively refresh the skin without stripping away any necessary moisture (because there’s no worse feeling that a tight, dry face is there?). Let’s find your perfect match!

CLENZIderm M.D.® Daily Care Foaming Cleanser

Suitable for normal – oily skin, the CLENZIderm M.D. Daily Care Foaming Cleanser is perfect if you’re wanting to unclog pores and fight away blemishes. It includes 2% salicylic acid, so is highly effective at cleansing and gently washing away dead skin and impurities.

PLUS it’s a lightweight gel that gently foams up as you apply and rub around your skin, so it really feels like it’s doing the work. A great bonus is that is also has cooling menthol, so your skin is left feeling not only clean, but refreshed too!

Suitable for: Normal and Oily skin

Salicylic Acid Cleanser
Gentle Foaming Cleanser

Obagi Nu-Derm® Gentle Cleanser

While all skin types need thorough cleansing, delicate skin requires extra special care and gentleness! Nu-Derm Gentle Cleanser is a mild facial cleanser that gently removes impurities, oil and makeup to leave skin clean and fresh.

It has been specifically formulated to cleanse and provide a fresh, brighter complexion, so you are left with younger, healthier-looking skin.

PLUS it includes Oat Amino Acids as a main ingredient, a naturally derived water-binding agent, so your skin is kept protected, soothed and hydrated.

Suitable for: Sensitive, Dry and Normal skin

Obagi Nu-Derm® Foaming Gel

The sibling to Obagi Nu-Derm® Gentle Cleanser, the Obagi Nu-Derm® Foaming Gel does a great job of gently removing makeup and everyday impurities, and also has the same benefits of Oat Amino Acids to keep your skin protected and soothed.

So what is the difference between the two, I hear you ask? The Foaming Gel is designed to cleanse pores and excess oil, so is perfect if you have more normal – oily skin (rather than sensitive or dry!).

Your skin will be left feeling refreshed and clean, with added Aloe to keep it soothed, hydrated and soft!

Suitable for: Normal and Oily skin

Nu-Derm Foaming Gel
SUZANOBAGIMD Foaming Cleanser


SUZANOBAGIMD Foaming Cleanser is dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic, and made without synthetic fragrance or parabens. As you apply the luxurious thick microfoam, it gently but deeply cleanses, removes oil buildup, makeup and environmental impurities.

It also includes Aloe, a water-binding agent that has soothing, antioxidant, and anti-bacterial qualities. A great all-rounder for all skin types.

Suitable for: Sensitive, Dry, Normal and Oily skin

Obagi-C® C-Cleansing Gel

A firm favourite for everyone, the Obagi-C C-Cleansing Gel is infused with L-ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), so brighter and healthier-looking skin is yours for the taking! It clarifies and prepares your skin while also removing makeup, excess oil, and other everyday impurities.

PLUS it also contains Aloe as a main ingredient, which will provide soothing hydration. Result? Clear, bright and hydrated skin.
