      I've never, ever ever had acne issues... I'm now 26 years old and have never even had a skincare regimen, but I've been going through a lot of changes in my life lately and adult acne recently started forming. I asked the Ulta rep to make recommendations for me since I've never really used anything... She said that this was light enough for me especially since I was a newbie. I used it for three days. My skin is so dry, it's itchy and rashing... I'm sure it works, but not for me... But if this is supposedly a light formula, and it's causing more redness and bumps as opposed to clearing it, I'm not sure what else I should use :(

        I'm not one to normally break out, so when my face broke out I was concerned. I was referred to this product by an aesthetician so I thought I'd give it a try. The first day night I used it, I immediately saw an improvement in my face. After using these products for the pst couple of days, my skin is looking a lot better and my breakout is clearing up.

            This product was purchased for my son who just hit puberty and his skin started to break out. The Ulta manager recommended these products for him and we trialed it and it worked wonderfully. His skin has cleared up beautifully. We attempted to purchase the full size of the Daily Treatment; however, it is no longer available in the local Ulta store. It appears to have been replaced with a Pore product. I will be checking online for the daily treatment as it does work great for my son and I prefer to stick with it but we will try the pore pruduct to see if that helps to clear his blackheads.

              Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Kit:

              My 12 year old son started breaking out on his forehead. Within a couple of weeks his breakouts started calming down and now he is breakout free for months. In the beginning, he used the face wash, toner, overnight treatment, and moisturizer every night. In the morning, I just put on the day time treatment and the moisturizer. Now that he is breakout free, sometimes he gets lazy and skip the wash but use the toner (or vice versa) with the day time treatment every night. He still uses the moisturizer in the morning. In addition, the scars where his pimples used to be are almost all gone.

              I highly recommend for preteens who just started breaking out to try this product. I find that this product is effective without over drying and sensitive to young skin. The price is a bit high for travel size, but it will last a long time. A little goes a long way. Moreover, the peace of mind that your preteen has one less stress to deal with is priceless.

                  I'm 24 years old and have a very oily T-zone. I have a lot of blackheads on my forehead, nose and chin. I'm also red in these areas (have been for a long time, even when I was only washing my face with water). I break out fairly often, and I wonder if this is a good kit for me? Combining it with "Clear Start Blackhead Clearing Pore Control Scrub" and maybe a charcoal mask? Thanks!

                    A:

                    Thank you for your inquiry. If you are prone to redness we recommend only apply the treatment products as spot treatment. Use pore control scrub as a masque by leaving it on the skin for 10 minutes and them massaging it off with wet hands. Charcoal Rescue Masque may be too stimulating for your skin.

                    Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend adding Charcoal Rescue Masque to your regimen twice a week. Do not layer active Moist over Overnight Clearing Gel unless you need to add hydration in areas.

                    Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend using Daily Microfoliant and C-12 Pure Bright Serum to help even your skin tone. You will also need to wear sunscreen daily and avoid direct sunlight.

                  I've used Neutrogena for years and I feel like it's worked for the most part but my skin has been acting up and I've been getting these huge under the skin acne on my cheeks and chin I'll get some on my forehead and I've always been scared on trying new things on my face cause my face is so sensitive... I'm only 19 would you recommend this kit or the medibac kit or any other product for my skin?

                    Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend that you try our Clear Start kit. Please only use the treatment product on your active breakouts. We also recommend using skin soothing hydrating lotion to prevent dehydration.
