    Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash:

    I had the worst breakout in my chin for over 2 months. I try Kate Somerville, Murad, and even a cheap brand Neutrogena. Nothing work for me. Until i try a small kit and my skin fell in love with DErmalogica. I have only a oily T-zone and the rest of my skin is normal

        Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash:

        I normally try to stay on the cheaper end of the product scale, but when my acne started going crazy I figured it was time to do something about it. I did some research and this one seemed to have good Results, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I'd say within three days my acne had cleared up. It smells kind of like vicks,so not an unpleasant smell in my book. I've already been recommending this to everyone I know! 10/10 would buy again.

          Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash:

          I use this product in the morning and at night. I solely use this cleanser and exfoliate once a week. This has cleared up my hormonal acne significantly. It has slightly dried up my skin but nothing a good moisturizer can't fix. My skin type is sensitive oily skin. I also get dermalogica facials every month. I love this brand and product... you definitely have to try it!

            Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash:

            I purchased this product after receiving a skin care consultation and facial by the Dermalogica representative at my Ulta store. My skin reacted well to the facial, but a couple weeks out after using this and a few other products, my couple problem zits turned into lots of huge, painful, cystic acne bumps.

            I will say that I thought the formula was nice. It didn't smell too bad like most acne washes do, didn't dry my skin out, and my skin felt nice and smooth after using it.

            I gave this product 3 stars because I think this product was maybe just too harsh for my skin. It might work for someone else, and like I said, the formula was good. I ended up going to a dermatologist (this was all for my wedding) and he claimed it was stress-related and had me switch to much milder skin care as well as an antibiotic and a prescription lotion. My acne has since cleared up.

                I use my Dermalogica face wash twice a day morning and night. In the morning I take a pea size amount and apply it with my fingers, and in the evening I put a tiny bit on my soft bristle Clarisonic brush, lather it up with my finger first and then use it as makeup remover. The skin feels absolutely great! Clean, fresh and absolutely NOT dry or flaky unlike what your regular drug store acne product would do. Even in the winter months when the air is so dry from the heaters I may get away with using moisturizer once a day

                  I really love this face soap. I do recommend if you use a lot of makeup use another soap to wash it off then use this. It saves a lot of the product and since it's expensive that's a plus. My skin looks better. I don't have a lot of break outs with this product.

                      Hello Brandon,
                      Clear Start is Dermalogica's teen line. These products are intended for teens that are experiencing breakouts. Our MediBac line is for adult acne that is cause by chronic stress and hormone imbalances. Both lines target breakouts however, our teen line is formulated with a delicate teen skin in mind. If you are unsure which line is best for you we recommend being Face Mapped at your Ulta store.

                      Hello Lexi,
                      Clearing Skin Wash should be used twice a day in the morning and before bed. You may cleanse your skin at the sink or in the shower. Use a pea size amount of cleanser with plenty of water, work on the skin for about a minute and rinse with water. Follow with toner and moisturizer.

                      A:

                      For those with rosacea, we always suggest consulting your physician and/or conducting a patch test on a discreet area of skin prior to using as directed. The active ingredient is Salicylic Acid (0.5%); if you have any sensitivity or an allergy to this ingredient, please consult your physician prior to use.

                      Ultracalming Cleanser (Item #: 2220560) is specially formulated for those with sensitive skin, though for those with rosacea, we do still recommend consulting your physician and/or conducting a patch test. Ultracalming Cleanser helps combat skin sensitivity caused by exposure to pollution, harsh climate, stress, hormonal imbalance, irritating cosmetic products and other environmental influences, and it contains no artificial fragrance or color:

                      A:

                      If you are experiencing extremely sensitive skin, then the best product to use for cleansing would be Ultra Calming Cleanser:

                      If the skin concern is oily/combination, then Clearing Skin Wash (this product) is a better recommendation and can be used twice daily.

                      Because this cleanser features exfoliating properties, we do not recommend using it to remove eye makeup, though it can certainly be used to remove face makeup. Dermalogica PreCleanse is ideal to use prior to cleansing to remove all traces of face and eye makeup for a deeper, more thorough cleanse:
