    Normally, this brand is perfect. Unfortunately, this set made my skin break out into painful cystic pimples that I never get. I have oily skin with slight acne. It may just be my sensitive skin.

      Easy to use. Expensive - but after trying so many different things this is the only thing I've found that actually works, and keeps working on my adult acne.

      Comments about Dermalogica MediBac Clearing Adult Acne Kit:

      I used Proactiv for several months but started to notice it was not as effective as in the beginning. I visited Ulta and this product was suggested by an estetician there. I used it just as directed for a month and was not impressed. The lotion dried out my skin and did not clear up my acne. In fact I saw an increase in my acne and finally got so upset I used my proactiv sulfur mask one night and my face was clear the next day. This product just was not for me. But all skin types are different.

        I am a 26 year old female with adult acne. I tried this product for four weeks. I continued to break out and started developing black heads that were not there at the start. The clearing mattifier caused my face to be more oily during the day as well as the oil control lotion. I was very excited to use this product but sad to say it didn't work for me.

          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.
