      Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment:

      I have tried a few different Dermalogica products before, and they never seem to make much of a difference to my skin. There have been a few products that I liked, but sadly, I don't feel like this overnight treatment makes much of a difference to my face. I love the smell; it smells like cucumbers. But it didn't seem to minimize my breakouts very much. I know someone who absolutely loves this product and swears by Dermalogica as a brand, but Dermalogica isn't for me. However, my skin is very resistant, especially when it comes to my acne breakouts.

        HOLY GRAIL ITEM! I have oily, acne prone skin and I have been fighting it for 23 years now. This stuff is AMAZING! I have been using this for 4 days now and my skin has cleared up so much! This product reduces redness and fights acne! After all it does have 2% salicylic acid in it plus other items to calm the skin. I would recommend to anyone who is dealing with unruly acne. I use this item in combination with Clean & Clear continous control with 10%benzoyl peroxide and Mario Badescus Vitamin C serum(really helps reduce acne scarring!). I LOVE this product and will continue to buy!

            Even though this is for night time, I use it during the day too. I have super oily skin and I think it keeps my face in check under my make up and helps me wake up with smooth skin. It can be really drying at first but I think my face is used to it now, and it doesn't necessarily prevent some occasional larger pimples from popping up. But it's a great value and I love the brand!

                I apply this at night and in the morning under my makeup. It feels soothing and non drying which is rare for acne cream. I use this with tea tree and coconut oil over the top at night and its the best anything has worked for me in a while! Definitely a staple in my routine

                  I tried the medi bac line first and it was too drying. An Ulta Aesthetician recommended I try the multi active toner followed by this teen overnight treatment when I experience breakouts. No over drying and clearer skin - overall, a gentler and less-expensive alternative to the medi bac products.

                    This product is wow. I went abroad for 3 months and came back to tons of acne on my face. I heard about this product through a blogger (essiebutton). And let me tell you this product is a gamechanger. Use it every night. If it dries out your skin, use it 2-3 times a week instead. You'll see the results. It's lightweight. Doesn't feel like you've put anything on.

                      Works great, only use every couple of days once you see results. It does dry out your skin. Best acne product I've used in a long time. I had breakouts from stress and I'm in my 30's. I can't use full lines of acne products cause they dry out my skin. This product does engough to clear the break outs, quickly.

                        I suffer from breakouts when I'm stressed, and holy hell what a bad year. I was going crazy trying to care for my skin, I ordered this as an afterthought and wow, I am so glad I did. Saw a difference after a week, using only three nights (taking breaks in between just in case of drying out, but I don't think it would if I used it every night).

                        Love the smell too, and how lightweight it feels. Great price too.

                            Breakout Clearing Treatment should be applied to clean skin every night. If dryness develops then reduce treatments to every other night. For best results, exfoliate and use Cooling Masque 3 times a week. Please contact with any further questions.

                          I have a daughter. She is 11 years old.
                          She started to have pilmples on her face. But it's not serious.
                          She needs noncomedogenic (does not clog pores) moisturiser.
                          Can she use this product?

                            Children as young as 10 years old can safely use Dermalogica Clear Start products. Because your daughter's acne is mild, instead of this product, we suggest instead for her to use Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer SPF 15, a non-pore clogging moisturizer that helps to promote clear, healthy skin:

                            This product is formulated with 2% salicylic acid, an exfoliating, acne-fighting active ingredient that clears pores of blemish-causing bacteria and pore clogging debris. At night after cleansing and toning, blend a thin layer into skin and allow to absorb.

                            Yes, you can apply moisturizer over Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment. Allow 30 seconds or so for Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment to fully absorb into your skin prior to moisturizing.

                            This product contains 2% salicylic acid, which is exfoliating. If your overnight serum is also exfoliating, we do not recommend applying it at the same time as this treatment; rather, alternate AM and PM with your treatments.

                            Yes! Salicylic Acid prevents breakouts by naturally unclogging the follicle, helping to clear and prevent blackheads. Unique botanicals including Tea Tree, Lavender and Camellia Sinensis are known to keep overactive oils in check.
