This non-irritating, naturally-foaming cleanser is the perfect start to around-the-clock control of breakouts, comedones and excess surface oils. Salicylic Acid sloughs off dead skin cells to clear clogged follicles, helping to prevent future breakout activity. Soothing, naturally-antiseptic extracts of Balm Mint, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Burdock and Camphor calm congested, aggravated skin. Skin is left clean and prepped for optimal absorption of acne control treatment ingredients. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

How it works:
  • Naturally-foaming cleanser clears away excess oil without stripping skin.
  • Salicylic Acid aids in clearing congested follicles and soothing irritation.
  • An anti-acne blend of botanical extracts including Licorice, Calendula, Milk Thistle, Lemon Peel, Arnica and Bergamot works with Salicylic Acid to help prevent future breakouts.
  • Tea Tree, Burdock, Eucalyptus, Golden Seal and Chamomile help eliminate bacteria.
  • Camphor and Menthol cool inflammation.

We recommend that first-time Dermalogica users visit an authorized skin treatment professional for a client consultation in an ULTA store.

        Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash:

        I have recently gotten off of a prescription birth control for personal reasons and my skin went crazy!! I had bumps everywhere and texture and gross pimples. I bought this after it being recommended by an esthetician and OMG!!! after the first use my pimple were LESS irritated. After three days of morning and night my pores are smaller, skin smoother, and those pimples that I had for a week are almost unnoticeable. I also used the daily microfiliant which I think helped with smoothing out texture. Buy this buy this buy this!! Can't wait to try more from dermalogica!! (Combination & sensitive skin with no irritation) but I do use Renewed hope in a jar for moisturizer immediately after)

                    I have had worsening adult cystic acne lately. Nothing the dermatologist has given me has helped. No read a ton of reviews and this seemed to work for a lot of people so decided to try. It's only been a week but so far so good. My skin feels smoother, my acne has started to clear up finally and I feel less oily and with cleaner feeling skin. It has dried me out some but I will be looking into some new moisturizer. I would really recommend this to anyone who has adult acne. I know it's not one size fits all for those who have it, but I think this is worth a try and you won't be disappointed.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, it will help however you need to start by having your blackheads removed and maintain those results by exfoliating and using a masque such as Charcoal Rescue Masque 2-3 times a week.

                        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.

                        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.
