              I used Dermologica's facewash before and was apprehensive about trying something geared toward teens since I'm in my late 20's, but this facewash works and it wasn't harsh on my skin! It has cleared up my skin and doesn't leave me feeling dried out!

                  I recently decided to give this brand a try after using a similar product from another brand for several years. I wasn't sure what to expect since I'm in my mid 30s and this product is somewhat targeted to a younger crowd. I was pleasently surprised by how much I love this cleanser. My skin was so much smoother after just a few days. I plan to continue using this product and will explore other items in the line.

                          This cleanser will help however you will also need to exfoliate and use an absorbing masque to clear up skin. Clear Start Blackhead Clearing Pore Control Scrub can be used as a scrub and masque 3-5 times a week.

                          This cleanser would be great for your skin condition however, you will need to use it as part of a system and be consistent with it. We recommend also using Daily Superfoliant, Skin Refining Masque and Breakout Control to treat breakouts. Ultra Calming Mist and Active Moist will help to keep your skin from becoming dehyrated.

                          Thank you for your question. Anyone can use it as long as their skin is oily and acneic. If you're not oily and only have a few breakouts I would recommend using Special Cleansing Gel along with a spot treatment to treat your breakouts, such as the Breakout Control which won't dry your skin out. I hope you find this helpful and if you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask.
