    I apply the product with the Clarisonic Mia. I really do like the way it makes my skin feels after each use. I will say that I notice a huge difference when I do not use the product.

      Comments about Dermalogica MediBac Clearing Adult Acne Kit:

      The medibac system does a fair job of preventing new acne flair ups in spots, but hasn't helped the current ones go away quickly as I had hoped. Isn't drying though, which I used ProActiv for a long time and found it to be very drying on the skin.

          Didnt do anything to my skin. Used it for a while but stop since i saw no difference. If anything i think i had smaller pimples forming. Ive had better results with pharmacy brands than this and it was expensive for such little bit of product. No good

            Comments about Dermalogica MediBac Clearing Adult Acne Kit:

            I was really excited to try this product. Almost immediately my skin seemed to purge itself. It increased the amount of acne had, especially around my chin. This lasted a couple weeks and was a bit painful. Once that finally subsided I noticed that the skin care kit along with their spot treatment was drying my face an incredible amount. It was terrible. So I called and asked what I should do. An associate suggested using the kit only every other day. On my off days I use Dermalogica sensitive skin wash and lotion. Now my skin is clearing up. Even though this it was a process to get to this point, it was definitely worth it for me. Nothing else has ever worked. I just wouldn't suggest starting this kit if you have any important or significant event coming up within the first 3-4 weeks.

            Comments about Dermalogica MediBac Clearing Adult Acne Kit:

            I have been using this kit everyday for the past week and the improvement of my skin is amazing! I noticed after the first use that my skin felt smoother and didn't feel nearly as oily. I haven't had any new breakouts since I began using and my existing ones are nearly gone. So happy to have finally found something that actually works for me.

            My only complaint would be that the concealer has a strong, not so good smeell to it.

              Comments about Dermalogica MediBac Clearing Adult Acne Kit:

              My derm noticed how great my skin looked and I do too. I was using other sal acid products but this group is great. I may not use the mattifier except in T-zone since this has silicone and can clog my pores and the oil control lotion is not really needed for myself but the rest is great. Got to try all the products and now know what I like and what works. I may get the wipes for travel for my face that are not included in the kit. May keep the remains of kit for travel too and get the large sizes soon.

              Not a good kit!

                Comments about Dermalogica MediBac Clearing Adult Acne Kit:

                This kit is bad. The skin clearing wash is like water, absolutely ineffective. The sebum clearing masque is very nice and is great for weekly use. Clearing mattifier pointless. Concealing spot treatment only irritated and worsened the spot I was trying to conceal causing an even longer than normal healing time. The over night clearing gel I used on around my chin where I break out. It caused my face to become red and inflamed were I applied it causing the worst break out I have ever had! I tried the overnight clearing gel several times and found it was best not to use it at all. I have switched to other dermalogica products and they work nicely. The only good thing in the kit was the sebum clearing masque.

                  I have struggled with acne since I was a teenager - now that I'm in my 20s it's not as severe but I was still recommended to try this product in order to keep it under control.

                  Holy breakout Batman! After using this product for a week I had acne that was just as bad as when I was 16. It completely dried out my skin and did nothing to prevent more acne from coming. I looked like one of the "before" pictures in a Proactiv commercial.

                  Absolutely not worth the money...I switched back to my $8 neutrogena product and got my skin cleared back up asap.

                    I've been using this daily for a couple weeks now and my skin is much, much less oily. I did break out worse when I first started dermalogica, but I kept with it and now my skin is truly clear for the first time since I first got acne as a teenager. I'm well into my thirties now. I love, love having clear skin again. I highly recommend this product!
