This kit for adult acne helps treat, clear and prevent the triggers that lead to breakouts. Use morning and night to help maintain consistently clear, healthy skin.

Medibac Kit Includes:
  • Clearing Skin Wash: Foaming, breakout-clearing cleanser (1.7 oz.)
  • Clearing Mattifier: Breakout-fighting shine control (0.5 oz.)
  • Overnight Clearing Gel: Clearing, purifying treatment (0.5 oz.)
  • Concealing Spot Treatment: Tinted topical breakout treatment (0.1 oz.)
  • Sebum Clearing Masque: Purifying, refining gel (0.75 oz.)

We recommend that first-time Dermalogica users visit an authorized skin treatment professional for a client consultation in an ULTA store.
Clearing Skin Wash: Work a pea-sized amount into a lather in wet hands. Apply to dampened face and throat, massaging in circular motions while concentrating on areas of congestion and oiliness. Avoid eye area. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Follow with Skin Purifying Wipes and prescribed Dermalogica MediBac Clearing regimen.

Clearing Mattifier: Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying. Cover entire affected area with a thin layer one or two times daily. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. Can be used under makeup, or alone in oily-prone areas, to reduce oily shine.

Overnight Clearing Gel: Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying. Cover entire affected area with a thin layer at night. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs reduce application to every other night. For external use only, not to be swallowed. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water. If irritation develops, discontinue use. Keep out of reach of children.

Concealing Spot Treatment: Dot onto finger and apply to afflicted area. Let stand for five seconds, then pat until blended in. Use until breakout has cleared.

Sebum Clearing Masque: Apply a smooth layer to cleansed face and throat (avoiding the eye area) three times per week. May also be used exclusively on the T-Zone. Leave on for 10 minutes, the rinse thoroughly with warm water. For external use only, not to be swallowed. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water.

Comments about Dermalogica Medibac Kit:

Started using this the night I purchased and fell in love. I've already noticed I haven't had as many painful breakouts occur since starting this kit. The lovely gal that rang up my purchase also gave me a sample of Philosophy's purity to try as an alternating face wash in case the kits wash became too drying. It hasn't even been a full week and the difference it's great!

        Comments about Dermalogica Medibac Kit:

        I love this kit. Works well with clearing up any spots one may have, I usually use this when my acne is acting up but then switch to the ultra calming kit when my skin isn't as bad. If I only use this kit then it actually becomes irritating. I have extremely sensitive skin and can use this for a few months before it starts affecting me. But since my acne is under control now I only need it maybe one week every month. Sometimes less

          Comments about Dermalogica Medibac Kit:

          So disappointed in this product. At my age I still suffer with acne. I have battled it all my life and was hoping this product would help. Within 3 days of using I started to get hundreds of tiny bumps on top of bumps covering my cheeks. I went back to my normal face wash and the bumps are slowly going away. The mattifier I was skeptical because it's a silicon base that fills in pores to make them appear smaller when in fact they are just putting a bandage on a pore issue vs helping keep them clean so they could get smaller. Beware!

                      • Q:

                        I'm 24 and have been fighting acne for 14 years now with and without my dermatologist. While I don't get as much cystic acne, I still get constant bumps on my face/neck/chest/back, blackheads, and I have scars/acute pitting developed over the years on my cheeks. I have oily skin. I was going to start off with this kit to see how my skin reacted to it. I don't really want to buy any large sizes because I've tried so much. I was thinking of getting this kit, the travel size daily microfoliant (for scarring/pitting), and the travel size preCleanse because I live in a hot and humid climate and that would boost the cleansing process. I would use a moisturizer that I already have during the day since this kit doesn't have a "day" moisturizer. I have fair/sensitive skin. Any tips or should I go in a different direction? Just want to go through a trial period.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. Unless you have oily skin with breakouts we recommend using the Oily skin kit. The MediBac kit is medicated to kill bacteria on the skin.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. The MediBac line is formulated to address breakout cause by chronic stress which elevates hormone levels in adult skin. Clear Start will treat and prevent normal teen breakouts and help to regulate oily skin.

                        I am 28 with sensitive skin (cannot use benzoyl peroxide, a lot of fragrance, etc) and continue to search for a product to use for adult acne on my cheeks and chin line. Dermalogica was suggested. Any further suggestions?

                          Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend using Breakout Control. This fast-absorbing gel contains natural antibacterial agents, including Lactobacillus Ferment, to help clear and prevent breakouts without over-drying the skin. An Azelaic Acid derivative helps control oil production for improved skin tone and texture. Tea Tree and antioxidant Zinc Sulfate also help soothe the skin. Contains Colloidal Silver, known to help eliminate bacteria and control acne. Formulated without artificial fragrances, colors or parabens.

                        I'm 23 years old and have struggled with acne in my teen years up till 22. I went off dairy for a year and my skin was perfect-no breakout! Now I'm getting acne all along my jawline and chin. And they're leaving scars. Will this product work for my sensitive, dry skin?

                          Thank you for your inquiry. For dry, sensitive skin we recommend using our normal/oily kit and spot treating with Breakout Control on your breakouts. The MediBac kit might be too active for your skin.

                      • Q:

                        I'm 34 and get acne on my cheeks and jaw line. I have tried the ultra calming kit and it made me break out more, but didn't irritate my skin like other products have in the past. I do have sensitive skin, so finding products that work and don't cause my skin issues can be hard.

                        Is this product recommended for sensitive skin types?

                          We recommend using some products from both lines. Ultra Calming Cleanser, Ultra Calming Mist, Daily Microfoliant, Breakout Control, Skin Refining Masque and Active Moist.

                      • Q:

                        I have always had problems with zits and pimples around my mouth and on my chin. However, I find products with benzyl peroxide to be too harsh and over drying for my skin, as my skin is not oily whatsoever. It is typically dry. What products would you recommend for somebody who struggles with zits and pimples, but has dry/sensitive skin? I have tried nearly everything, and nothing has helped to clear up my skin consistently without causing excessive drying and flaking.
