Overnight Clearing Gel

1.7 oz Item 2152603

Find in Store-

An overnight treatment designed to help clear skin congestion and help prevent future breakouts. A Vitamin B complex of Niacinamide and Biotin combined with Zinc Gluconate, Yeast Extract, Caffeine and Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid soothes irritation, inhibits overactive sebaceous gland activity and purifies. Rosemary and Spiraea extracts inhibit the growth of acnegenic bacteria while stimulating the skin's natural antimicrobial agents for clearer, healthier skin. Salicylic Acid sloughs off pore-clogging skin cells to inhibit development of further breakouts, while naturally-antiseptic Tea Tree Oil assists in skin-healing. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

How it works:

  • Salicylic Acid sloughs off pore-clogging skin cells to inhibit development of further breakouts.
  • Niacinamide and Biotin combine with Zinc Gluconate, Yeast Extract, Caffeine and Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid to inhibit overactive sebaceous gland activity, purify to promote skin clarity and help calm irritation brought on by breakouts.
  • Naturally antiseptic Tea Tree Oil and Rosemary inhibit bacteria while Spiraea Ulmaria Extract stimulates the skin's natural anti-bacterial agents.
  • Green Tea soothes while Hyaluronic Acid hydrates.


We recommend that first-time Dermalogica users visit an authorized skin treatment professional for a client consultation in an ULTA store.

    Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

    I have normal/oily skin and I use most of the dermalogica products in my daily facial routine. I have random breakouts and I was hoping this would help out with that & with acne scars. It did the opposite and unfortunately dried my skin out and made me break out. Therefore, I personally do not recommend this product.

      So I read all the reviews on this product and was convinced....bought it and started it 5 days ago and its working! A bit of background, I'm female, 23, fair skin, mild acne, and I broke out like crazy after switching birth control so I no it was a hormonal breakout. These pimples were not going away for weeks but sense o started this stuff, the redness/pimples have decreased and are almost gone and I can say that some of the red post acne marks are lightening as well!!! I cake this stuff on and then do a gentle scrub every night and my skin is finally heeling up after months!! So happy!

            Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

            I used the Dermalogica Clearing Gel for the first time last night. When I woke up this morning, 60% of my Pimples and Milia are gone completely. The Pimples and Milia that I still have left (which isn't many) minimized significantly and reduced down 2x it's original size. What an amazing product!

            I have been using the Dermologica Pre Cleanse, Special Cleansing Gel and The Moisturizer for 2 weeks, so adding The Overnight Clearing Gel significantly enhanced my results. My family even complimented my face when I woke up this morning.

            I would highly recommend this product to ANYBODY struggling with whiteheads, blackheads, pimples or milia.

            Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

            I've been having some issues with adult acne lately, so I decided to give this a try before going to see my doctor and doing something 'drastic'... After reading all the great reviews and since the 'Intensive moisture balance' worked so well when my skin was parched, I thought this was going to be as good, well... Boy was I wrong! The tiny pimples around my jawline and under my ears, inflated like balloons overnight; not to mention the huge blemishes I got on my forehead (never in my life had one there that was worth mentioning) ... Is as if there was some clogging ingredient or something, 'cause my skin was very clean (used a Clarisonic prior to to this) So yeah, even then I gave it another chance and again: More pimples, it took me over a week and a half on AcZone to diminish the monstrosity done by this product! :-/

            The gel is really easy to use exactly how much you need. While it didn't clear "overnight" it did have an effect of the size of my breakouts. The excessive drying might cause other breakouts so use an exfoliating scrub or every other night.

                A:

                It sounds like your are becoming sensitized from your product. Are you using a moisturizer? We recommend not using Overnight Clearing Gel if your skin feels rashy. Please visit your closest Ulta and have the Dermalogica Skin Therapist look and your skin and advise what to use on your skin. It sounds like you would benefit from Ultra Calming Cleanser and Active Moist in your current condition. It is best to have someone look at your skin.

                A:

                Hi Audrey,

                Since you are already treating your acne and exfoliating with the Retin-A Micro you do not need to use Overnight Clearing Gel as well. You will want to use one or the other. Since Retin-A can be somewhat irritating you can switch off nights of using both of these products.
                We hope this answers your question. Thank You.

                Thank you for your inquiry. This product will help to treat breakouts and prevent new ones. It will usually show improvements in about a week. For scaring we recommend Daily Microfoliant, and Oil Free Matte SPF30.
