FREE Age Smart Moisturizer Set w/any $50 Dermalogica purchase
This non-irritating, naturally-foaming cleanser is the perfect start to around-the-clock control of breakouts, comedones and excess surface oils. Salicylic Acid sloughs off dead skin cells to clear clogged follicles, helping to prevent future breakout activity. Soothing, naturally-antiseptic extracts of Balm Mint, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Burdock and Camphor calm congested, aggravated skin. Skin is left clean and prepped for optimal absorption of acne control treatment ingredients. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

How it works:
  • Naturally-foaming cleanser clears away excess oil without stripping skin.
  • Salicylic Acid aids in clearing congested follicles and soothing irritation.
  • An anti-acne blend of botanical extracts including Licorice, Calendula, Milk Thistle, Lemon Peel, Arnica and Bergamot works with Salicylic Acid to help prevent future breakouts.
  • Tea Tree, Burdock, Eucalyptus, Golden Seal and Chamomile help eliminate bacteria.
  • Camphor and Menthol cool inflammation.

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

          Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash:

          For years on the same birth control, I switched and my skin was very upset! After a year of horrible breakouts along both sides of my chin I finally tried this wash. Unlike the dozens of drugstore brand washes, I saw results in hours, and in 24 hours I saw a 50% reduction in size, redness, and swelling of existing blemishes. Small, forming blemishes were gone from one use. I am so glad I finally tried this! It does try out skin, so I suggest using a hydrating, oil-free moisturizer after washing with this.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, it will help however you need to start by having your blackheads removed and maintain those results by exfoliating and using a masque such as Charcoal Rescue Masque 2-3 times a week.

                      Hello Brandon,
                      Clear Start is Dermalogica's teen line. These products are intended for teens that are experiencing breakouts. Our MediBac line is for adult acne that is cause by chronic stress and hormone imbalances. Both lines target breakouts however, our teen line is formulated with a delicate teen skin in mind. If you are unsure which line is best for you we recommend being Face Mapped at your Ulta store.

                      Clearing Skin Wash should be used twice a day in the morning and before bed. You may cleanse your skin at the sink or in the shower. Use a pea size amount of cleanser with plenty of water, work on the skin for about a minute and rinse with water. Follow with toner and moisturizer.
