FREE Age Smart Moisturizer Set w/any $50 Dermalogica purchase
A topical gel treatment to combat breakouts. This 5% Benzoyl Peroxide concentrate, fortified with Alginated Zinc Triplex and soothing botanicals, helps accelerate blemish clearing. Contains no artificial fragrance or color. Professional recommendation advised.

How it works:
  • Benzoyl Peroxide eliminates bacteria in the skin follicles, helping to clear blemishes and prevent future breakouts.
  • Extracts of Calendula, Chamomile and St. Johns Wort help soothe irritation associated with acne.
  • Soothing Alginated Zinc Triplex helps control acne-causing bacteria and sebum production.

(1.0 fl. oz.)

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

Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying. Cover the affected area with a thin layer 1 to 3 times daily. Because too much drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily and then gradually increase to 2 or 3 times daily if needed or as directed by a physician. If bothersome dryness occurs , reduce application to once daily or every other day. If going outside use a sunscreen. Allow Special Clearing Booster to dry then follow directions of the sunscreen labeling.

    Comments about Dermalogica Special Clearing Booster:

    Bought this for my son who is 34 years old. I saw improvement in his skin within 24 hours. As each day has gone by, his skin continues to look better and better. He uses a small amount of moisturizer immediately after applying the Dermalogica Special Clearing Booster to protect his skin from becoming too dry.

        Comments about Dermalogica Special Clearing Booster:

        I received a FULL SIZE of this product as a SAMPLE in another order. It took one night to have me sold. I'm 29 years old and have battled acne for 17 years. This did what other benzoyl peroxide products claim to do. Redness, gone. Swelling, gone. Both overnight. Because of the extra groovy ingredients, it's a thinner consistency, so a little goes a long way. I may be able to buy 1oz of Persagel or the like for under $10 at the drugstore, but I'd rather pay $50 for this and have it last longer and work better.

                            I have tried regular benzoyl peroxide products and they have so much benzoyl peroxide in them that they cause extreme dryness for my skin. This product has just the right amount of benzoyl peroxide to fight the acne WITHOUT drying my skin. Once a day is all you need use this product to see results!

                            It's really simple, you can just put a thin layer on your skin/irritated areas just as you would like a serum. It dries fast & starts working with noticeable results within a few hours. It's really a wonderful product with nearly immediate results! I love that it is so fast acting, although I do admit it will make your skin dry, so keep that in mind. Just use only as often as you need it and remember to use a really good moisturizer! It's quite the little life saver! (:

                            This helped with bringing down inflammation on big "mountain" type problem areas. BUT you need to be sure to use with caution!!! I used this as directed and it makes the top layers of skin peel off. It ultimately reduces the size of a problem area but you are then left dealing with dry, scaly peeling skin. Also, if you over use the product it leaves skin irritated and peeling for weeks.

                                A:

                                The order in which you would use your products is as follows: Clearing Mattifier should be used first on clean skin in areas of excess oil. Next, use Oil Control Lotion all over followed by Special Clearing Booster as a spot treatment. The reason why this booster is used last is because you want it to stay on the breakout where it is applied. If you do it before moisturizer, the booster will smear and be spread to other parts of the face. We hope this helps!
