Ask a Question

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.

Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

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.

          Kind of pricey but definitely worth it! Was able to see an improvement in my acne and my skin in just a matter of days, it's very effective and works well on stubborn adult acne without being harsh, irritating, or drying on the skin. Definitely recommend this product.

            Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

            I use this nightly. I was concerned that it would be drying but it's not when I use it under my moisturizer. It has really helped control the frequency of my breakouts and it also minimizes the severity of breakouts when I do have them. When I have little bumps coming in, it clears them up overnight or within a few nights.

                I have been using the Mario bedescu drying lotion for about three years now, but now it just doesn't seem to work. So, I was wondering if this will work just as effectively it has the same qualtiy as it.

                  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 question. Overnight Clearing Gel is an anti-acne treatment product therefore it would go on before your moisturizer. I hope you find this helpful and if you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask.

                  Thank you for your inquiry. If you intend to layer this product we recommend applying Overnight Clearing Gel First and then your other products. make sure they are not too heavy which can be causing the congestion in the first place. Charcoal Rescue Masque will help to address all of your skin care concerns and should be used 1-2 times a week.

                  A:

                  Hello Bernadette,

                  It is difficult to say how acne is going to act with new products. With the degree of acne that you have described it is unlikely that an over the counter brand, like Dermalogica would clear up your skin completely. Since you are under a doctor's care please make sure that the products you are using are ok to use with your medication. If you are taking any medication (oral or topical) that dry your skin and make it more sensitive, we recommend focusing on inflammation and sensitivity. Our Ultra Calming line works really well for dehydrated skin with acne. For best results it is always best to go into an Ulta and be face Mapped.
