    I purchased this for my teen sons to use a week prior to school pics. Their skin was flawless for pics!! Didn't have to spend $$ on touching up photo to get rid of break outs.

        I purchased this set for my daughter who is a teen and having acne problems. She has been using it for a couple weeks and I have seen her acne slowly clearing up. Nothing we've tried before worked this quickly for her. I plan to buy the full size products going forward. I recommend this product for teens.

              Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Kit:

              I started using the Clear Start Kit when I was 13 or 14 and continue to do so at age 15. The product actually works and after using the cleanser, toner, moisturizer and occasionally daytime/nighttime treatment for 2 days my skin begins to clear up. It's been extremely helpful and is the only skincare product I (need to) use.

              I can't say it will work for everyone, though here's some info on me: I have normal skin, oily on my nose. Don't have acne, I usually get a few non-poppable, but still noticeable pimples on my forehead and have lots of unnoticeable bumps on my forehead as well. I also have very sensitive skin (when it comes to the sun).

              I bought the first kit, used it for a couple of months but then lost it, so I went back and bought another. Eventually I found the original one and started to use both. To this day, both of them have yet to run out and it's been about one and a half year (though I didn't/don't use them everyday).

              Depending on your views it may seem a little expensive, but in my opinion I find it to be worth the money–quality and quantity-wise.

                I bought this kit for my 16 year old daughter, it is working well. I wouldn't say her skin is cleared up 100% but it looks a lot better. I think with continued use it will only get better and better. Love that the toner is a spray, it makes it super fast and easy to apply that way.

                              Hello Tyler,
                              Acne can be frustrating to deal with. Our Clear Start line will help to treat and prevent breakouts without over drying your skin. While it is impossible to promise that you breakouts will completely go away, you should see improvement within a few weeks. Remember to exfoliate regularly and use your masque to prevent over drying of the skin.

                            Hi I'm 18 years old and when I was younger I used to have really nice skin. However, when I used a certain product before realizing I was allergic to it, it caused me really bad breakouts and left me with some scarring. I still breakout here and there but was wondering if this would help. I have normal/dry skin and very sensitive as well. I really wanna try dermalogica since I've heard such great things but not sure which starter kit to try out. Thank you!

                              Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The best kit for your to try is Ultra Calming. In addition to these products we recommend using Daily Microfoliant 3-4 times a week to exfoliate and Skin Refining Masque to help prevent clogged pores. If breakouts become and issue again you can add Breakout Control 1-2 times a day in effected area.

                            I have combination skin, but in the winter it becomes more combination-dry.
                            I noticed from reviews it flakes some peoples skin and so the salicylic acid and the moisturizer being oil clearing does concern me a little bit. would you recommend all of the products in the kit for my skin type? is there another product to go along with these to help prevent the flakiness or over-drying of my face?

                              In addition to this kit we would recommend using Active Moist over your treatment products for added hydration. You may also add Skin Hydrating Masque 2-3 times a week to prevent and address dehydration to prevent dryness and sensitivity.

                              Hello Creole,

                              We recommend using our MediBac line which is for adult acne. The main cause of acne in adult skin is chronic stress. Our MediBac line has ingredients in it to better treat stress induced breakouts without over drying the skin. It is always best to be Face Mapped and have products recommended for your skin. You may need a few key MediBac products or the whole segment to treat you breakouts. You can be Face Mapped at any Ulta location. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

                              Kindest Regards,

                              Thank you for your inquiry. The best option for marks left from acne would be our Power Bright products. The Power Bright kit will last you 3-4 weeks. To enhance the brightening benefits you can use Skin Resurfacing Cleanser everyday. Please contact us with any further questions.

                              Since your acne is an ongoing issue and you are now in college, we recommend using the MediBac segment. As you enter adulthood, chronic stress is a major contributing factor of adult acne. We recommend getting Face Mapped at ULTA to ensure that these are the best products for your skin. Acne is a challenging condition, and it is important to be consistent with your regimen, specifically exfoliating and using the Sebum Clearing Masque 2-3 times a week. Also, always be careful with sun exposure. Breakouts can easily result in hyperpigmentation that lasts for months. Use Oil Free Matte SPF30 everyday as moisturizer to absorb oil, protect and hydrate. We hope this info helps!

                            I have a 10 year old daughter, she is starting to get acne on her forehead.
                            I struggled with acne in my teen years, I remember that I was very uncomfortable. I want to make sure that my daughter doesn't have to go through this. I understand it's a natural process but I want to help her as much as I can. I want to know if dermalogica products can help her.

                              Dermalogica's Clear Start line is formulated to be tough on breakouts without over drying or sensitizing teen skin. The same qualities of ingredients are used in the teen line as the trusted Dermalogica line. The Clear Start segment works best when used consistently as a system. Breakout Clearing Foam Wash should be used twice a day, followed by All Over Toner. Depending on your daughter's skin's needs, she will use the appropriate treatment products followed by Matte Moisture SPF15 or Overnight Treatment. This system also has an exfoliant and a masque that is hydrating and antibacterial. All of the Clear Start products have soothing botanicals and calming ingredients to ensure that the skin does not become dehydrated. We hope this info helps!

                            I am considering buying this product for my teenage son. I've noticed that in quite a lot of the reviews, it is mentioned that it "smells great". Is the scent going to be too feminine for a male?

                              You are correct that the Clear Start line has more scent than our regular products. These scents come from botanicals for beneficial purposes and smell very clean and natural. In no way do products smell feminine. We are confident that your son will get results from the Clear Start line and enjoy the fresh scent of the products.
