      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.

            I have been struggling with acne for most of my life and recently it's been getting out of control. I heard great things about the Dermatological brand and was very excited for this purchase. Unfortunately, it has been very ineffective. It really hasn't done anything; it's just a cream I out on my face. I was looking forward to this making some sort of impact, and sadly it didn't live up to its hype.

              Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment:

              My skin was noticeably clearer overnight! If you're looking for something quick, this is it! The only downside of this product is that it significantly dries out your skin. I ended up having to limit my use to every other day because of how badly my skin was drying out.

                      Hello Emily:

                      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.

                      Let us know if you have any further questions

                    What is the difference between this product and the Overnight Clearing Gel? Are there differences in the problems they are designed to treat or are the products designed with different skin types in mind? I am trying to pick between the two and am not sure which would be a better option.

                      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.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. This treatment product is tolerated by most skin types including sensitive skin. 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.

                    Is this a moisturizer? I use it after I put on toner but it is extremely dry. Feels like it is pulling my skin. I am extremely oily and suffering from a very painful breakout. Am I supposed to use a moisturizer and then put this treatment on? I used to use the Cetaphil moisturizer but it is too oily so I wanted to use someting new.
