    Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment:

    After having my 12 year old son on two different prescription acne meds that burnt and dried out his skin and trying just about every OTC product on the market this product along with the foaming wash is amazing. It soothes the skin minimizing the inflammation. He's only been using it for about 6 days and his forehead looks so much better. I've recommended this to all my friends with teens.

        Feels great after cleansing, before bedtime. Works best for larger areas and large pores where you're prone to getting blackheads & whiteheads. More as preventative or when you first detect a pimple. I would still use salicylic acid 2% gel for spot treating pimples.

          Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment:

          I was pleasantly surprised with how good this stuff is. I bought this in store after running out of my DDF treatment (which is now online only). I have combo, sensitive, acne prone skin. I use this at night after cleansing and using the Peter Thomas Roth Max Correction pads. When used regularly, this definitely helps to keep my skin clear, but this product is unique because it does not dry my skin out at all. In addition to the salicylic acid, it has cucumber extract, which soothes and hydrates. finally, it doesn't have an offensive smell like some of the other acne treatment products. I love this stuff and will continue to buy!

            I have very sensitive skin, but I only started to breakout after turning 30. After trying many products at great expense I found this. This treatment at night and a gel moisturizer in the morning was a life saver. Anything else and my face becomes irritated and breaks out.

                The first time I bought this I didn't realize it was for teens until I went back and looked at the reviews. I'm not sure how this would work on regular day-to-day acne or Cystic acne but it works great on pustule acne (small cluster of bumps). I use this product at night on the upper part of my cheekbone after I wash my face. By the morning the bumps are gone.

                  My tween son started getting acne on forehead and nothing otc seemed to work. I considered just a toner from proactiv then saw the ingredients list for this product and made my decision based on how many actual good ingredients were in it. So much less harsh than others and they are not kidding when they say notice a difference overnight. 3 nights and already 75% improvement!!!!!

                  If you say it clears overnight, I expect the pimple to be gone in the morning and this product did not do that. I would say it helps but doesn't clear in one use.

                      Hello KC:

                      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. While using the Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment you do not need to use a moisturizer because it contains Cross-Linked Hyaluronic Acid which delivers moisture to the skin. Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment is meant to be used alone however, if you need more hydration you may use a moisturizer on top of it such as Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion.

                      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The Overnight Clearing Gel is formulated for Adults. The Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment is formulated for Teens. Both of these products contain Salicylic Acid. If you only have occasional breakouts we recommend using the Special Clearing Booster. This is for spot treatments.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. The Clear Start products are for normal teen breakouts due to puberty. If you are an adult we recommend using the MediBac line, Overnight Clearing Gel to treat breakouts due to chronic stress and hormonal imbalances.

If you are very sensitive we do recommend using Breakout Control instead as it is better suited for very sensitive skin. Only apply to areas of breakouts to avoid over use.
