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.

                My skin has been consistently worse since starting the Medibac regimen. I'm breaking out like crazy! I'm disappointed that I spent money on this kit that makes my skin much too oily and results in clusters of large, painful zits.

                  Litterally have tried every product you could imagine out there for clearing my acne. I had no marks or issues in high school then college came and now into adulthood and I can't get rid of it. It typically come out hormonaly, about a week before. But just as it clears up its right back.
                  I went into ulta looking for a matte primer because I'm oily, oily, and more oily. We got talking about my skin issues and she recommended this for my acne and oil problems. I used it for about a week and a half and there have been a remarkable difference in my skin and how it looks! The clearing mattifier keeps me matte ALL day which I thought was vertually IMPOSSIBLE!
                  The wash doesn't make you feel tight and the overnight gel works wonders.
                  When I went back to the store I got big bottles of the wash, mattifier, overnight gel, and oil control lotion to try out.
                  Even though things are a bit pricey with dermalogica it's well worth it to me!
                  This is a good kit to test out if you're just trying the products.

                        While my breakouts didn't disappear over night, they were certainly smaller and less visible after each night, and cleared up far more quickly than in the past! After just a few weeks, my skin was smooth and calm. My acne is very affected by hormones, so I still break out about once a month, but this system has helped to control those hormonal break outs and clear them up considerably faster than anything else I've tried!

                            I am 34 year old and I'm mainly breaking out on my forehead, chin, and back. I'm oily in the t-zone areas. I notice I'm more oily in the summer and dry in the winter. I do have acne scars that's slowly fading.

                              Thank you for your inquiry. This kit is suitable for your skin type and will help to address breakouts and balance oil production. You may use the cleanser and Overnight Clearing Gel on the back to treat acne. Be sure to wear sunscreen during the day to prevent hyperpigmentation from past breakouts.

                              Thank you for your inquiry. The MediBac kit is best for acne. To treat hyperpigmentation caused by acne we recommend using the Power Bright kit. These products will work together to brighten and even skin tone. This system works best when used with Daily Microfoliant everyday and avoiding direct sun light.

                          • Q:

                            I am 54 years old, and still suffering from acne on my chin. I have tried Proactiv and Murad. They clear the surface, but not the deep down problems causing pimples to come back. I am oily only in the t-zone. I would guess that the acne is hormone related as well as stress other than my diet. Should I use the meds-bac system or the system for normal/oily skin?

                              Thank you for your inquiry. Since your breakouts are only on your chin we recommend using our normal/oil kit and using Charcoal Rescue Masque 2-3 times a week and Breakout Control on your chin/problem area. If you are consistent with these products you will see a reduction of breakouts in this area.

                              Thank you for your inquiry. To treat breakouts you need to be consistent with exfoliation and masquing. We recommend using Daily Microfoliant and Sebum Clearing Masque that comes in your MediBac kit. Also, make sure you are not using any products that are clogging your pores. Check your make up for mineral oil based ingredients and heavy oils.

                            I'm 32 have bad acne on the chin and jawline recently popping up on my forehead, temples, cheeks and neck. I had a baby 8 months ago and started breaking out approximately 4 months ago. I have combo skin although someone recently that it may just be dry and over producing oil. I also have some dark spots I'd like to address. Would Medibac work for the acne ?

                              Thank you for your inquiry. The MediBac line would be best to address your breakouts with the addition of Ultra Calming Mist and Oil Free Matte SPF30 for daytime use. To address hyperpigmentation we recommend using Daily Microfoliant and spot treating marks with C-12 Pure Bright Serum. Please careful with sun exposure and wear a hat when outdoors.

                              Thank you for your inquiry. Depending on the amount of oil you produce, either Oil Control Lotion or Active Moist. Oil Control Lotion is for extremely oily skin and Active Moist is for normal to oily skin.

                          • Q:

                            I'm 23 and have very, very oily skin and a recent increase in hormonal acne and blackheads. The blackheads are mostly in my more oily spots, cystic/hormonal acne on my cheeks and chin, and those dreaded milia dispersed on my chin and forehead. My skin can be a little sensitive at times.
                            I have tried most OTC treatments, home remedies, and Proactiv with little to no improvement.
                            Would the medi bac line be the optimal choice? Or should I go with the oily skin package?
                            I'm terribly worried about future scarring and I really pride myself in clear and healthy skin.
                            Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

                              Thank you for your inquiry. For your skin we recommend the following products:

                              Dermal Clay Cleanser, Daily Microfoliant, Charcoal Rescue Masque, Ultra Calming Mist, Breakout Control, Active Moist for night time moisturizer and Oil Free Matte SPF30 for daytime moisturizer. These products will help to even oil production without over drying or sensitizing your skin.

                              Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend using the Normal/Oily kit and using a spot treatment to address your breakouts, Breakout Control. You will also benefit from Charcoal Rescue masque which will address excess oil and breakouts.

                              Thank you for your inquiry. For your age you can switch to the MediBac kit. These products will be more specifically for stress related breakout rather than teen puberty related breakouts. We recommend using Oil Free Matte SPF30 for daytime to protect your skin from sun damage and sensitivity.

                            I have adult acne that's getting worse along jawline, chin, and sometimes cheeks, proactiv would clear all the small bumps and improve texture but would cause very deep and painful cystic acne mostly on chin area. Do y'all have anything you'd recommend I try because I don't want to have to take medications from a dermatologist...

                              Thank you for your inquiry. The MediBac kit is a good start for the skin concerns you are having. In addition to the kit we recommend using Ultra Calming Mist and Oil Free Matte SPF30 to keep your skin hydrated. Once you have ran out of your Sebum Clearing Masque which comes in the kit you can switch to the retail size of Charcoal Rescue Masque 2-3 times a week. It is important to be consistent with your skin care and keep skin hydrated.
