        Comments about Dermalogica MediBac Clearing Adult Acne Kit:

        I am a long time acne sufferer who, like many, has tried it all. I never had any luck with OTC products, so I did the Rx thing for a while with moderate success. The dryness and sensitivity however really put me off from prescription products. Then this little beauty caught my eye. It took a few days to start seeing results, but once it started to work I was blown away. I have next to no blemishes, the breakouts I do have are negligible. My skin's texture is brigher, smoother, and more even. I wasn't impressed with the concealing treatment, but the rest of the products in this kit work incredibly well! I do have to supplement with a moisturizer to prevent dryness and flaking, but that's not surprising or bothersome at all.

              Comments about Dermalogica MediBac Clearing Adult Acne Kit:

              Ok, so I am one of those people who hate skin routines. I did however try to use the kit as intended...I found that when I stopped using the products all together my skin seemed to clear up as I was only using the cleanser. Funny thing is, I knew the first time I used the cleanser that I liked it. I have sensitive skin and this cleanser didn't make it feel too dry or itchy but still was helping with my acne. When I was using the whole system, my face didn't feel that way. From now on, I am going to be repurchasing the cleanser but leaving the rest of the line alone.

                            Thank you for your inquiry. Your primer should be applied over your moisturizer and treatment products followed by your foundation. Use primer and foundation sparingly on acne prone skin. Pre Cleanse should be used at night to ensure that all makeup is removed.

                            Hello Ayse,

                            Thank you for your inquiry. MediBac Clearing is for hormonal and stress induced breakouts. If your skin was clear this wasn't the best kit for your skin. It sounds like you have experienced a sensitized reaction from over exfoliating. When the skin becomes dehydrated it will be more sensitive which leads to breakouts. We suggest using only a few MediBac products to prevent breakouts. Sebum Clearing Masque and Concealing Spot Treatment can be used as needed to address breakouts. For daily use try using Special Cleansing Gel, MultiActive Toner and Active Moist.

                            Hello Shilo, No, the products in this kit do not contain benzoyl peroxide. The active ingredients used in this kit are salicylic acid and sulfur. We do have a product that has BPO in it called Special Clearing Booster if you are looking for one. This is used as a spot treatment to be used directly on your breakouts. Please contact us with any further questions.

                            We suggest using our teen like, Clear Start for your skin. The rash like description suggested that you skin is dehydrated. Our teen line is formulated to be more hydrating and better suited for a teen skin. With aggressive acne we cannot be certain that the breakout will go away however, being consistent with exfoliation and your masque will help to improve your condition. We suggest having the skin therapist at Ulta Face Map you to be sure this is the correct recommendation. It is always best to have someone see and feel your skin when recommending products.

                          I am a 19 year old girl with combination skin. It can be flaky and oily at the same time. I have had acne since I was 12 years old. It is moderate and sometimes severe, with only cystic pimples once every few months. I have never not had visible blackheads on my nose and chin. Recently I have been struggling with acne scarring. I can get a pimple to flatten, but the scar remains for weeks.

                          Will this product work for me? or should I try something for teenage skin?

                            Thank you for your inquiry. To prevent over drying sensitized skin we recommend introducing a few products at a time to give your skin time to adjust to the active ingredients. Also, you may alternate using Overnight Clearing Gel every other night instead of every night to prevent over drying the skin. Please contact us with any other questions.

                        • Q:

                          I just started using this product to clear up cystic acne. Due to the severity of my acne I never leave the house without at least foundation, and sometimes a primer. My skin is combination, it is dry here in the winter, and I was told to use a moisturizer on my face every day to get my skin to even out its oil production and to control the dryness without making it look too oily. (Such a fine balance to maintain!)

                          At what step should I be using my non-Dermalogica brand moisturizer? (I have a choice of Cetaphil, Lubriderm, or Simple.) Should it be morning and/or night? There are so many products that I don't want to make my acne worse or decrease the effectiveness of the treatment.

                            Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend using Oil Control Lotion as your moisturizer however, if you would like to use one of your moisturizers you would use it in place of Oil Control Lotion morning and night over Clearing Mattifier.
