FREE Age Smart Moisturizer Set with any $50 Dermalogica purchase (offer valid 1/30/16-2/13/16 or while supplies last)

FREE Age Smart Moisturizer Set w/any $50 Dermalogica purchase
A medicated topical treatment that clears breakouts, reduces congestion and controls shine. Organic Silicones melt gently into skin to help diminish fine lines and smooth skin texture while providing an all-day matte finish. Niacinamide, Zinc Gluconate, Yeast Extract, Caffeine and Biotin purify and inhibit overactive sebaceous activity while Salicylic Acid clears congested follicles to minimize future breakout activity. Cinnamon Bark Extract helps reduce comedones and calming Green Tea and Chamomile soothe inflammation associated with breakouts. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

How it works:
  • Organic Silicones smooth skin texture and diminish fine lines while providing superior shine control.
  • Salicylic Acid aids in clearing congested follicles and soothing skin irritation.
  • Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A) acts as a natural exfoliant.
  • Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea), Licorice and Chamomile soothe and calm inflammation.
  • Niacinamide, Yeast Extract, Horse Chestnut, Licorice, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5) and Caffeine act as bioregulators of sebaceous secretions in skin, reducing oil and shine.
  • A patent-pending Cinnamon Bark blend inhibits bacterial lipid metabolism and degradation of enzymes while eliminating bacteria, providing astringent properties and helping to reduce comedones for clearer skin.
  • Grape Seed Extract, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5) and Vitamin E condition and provide critical defense against free radical damage.

Leaves your skin so Matt while preventing breakouts only down fall is that it doesn't last as long as is expect it but I used it as a primer worked for a few hours but would be perfect to control oil and leave you with a Matt look

    Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier:

    I completely agree with the comment about how it melts off into flakes and balls after application. Especially if you try to put make up or a moisturizer on, but even on it's own it would rub off the blemish very easily due to its texture. Didn't help with pimples, either. Threw it away after trying to use it for a few months.

      Comments about Dermalogica Clearing Mattifier:

      I've been using this product every day for the past year or so; I wash my face in the morning, then apply the Clearing Mattifier before putting on my makeup. I have oily/acne-prone skin that breaks out very easily with most facial products, and I've finally found a solution to curbing acne caused by makeup. I use it as a primer before putting on foundation so that there's a barrier between my skin and the foundation and I don't get breakouts. It also creates a "matte-like" finish, so your skin doesn't look oily, but if you use it as a base for the foundation, your makeup doesn't get that shiny appearance. The only thing that I'm not so fond of about this product is that you must be careful to distribute a thin layer very evenly on your skin if you do intend to use it as a primer. Otherwise, with certain foundations, when you begin applying them, the Mattifier will begin to "flake", and you'll get little flakes of the gel-like substance of the Mattifier mixed with foundation, then you'll have to wipe that area and start all over again.

        I bought a sample kit after having my 1st ever Dermalogica facial...after that I was SOLD. I tend to buy the sample kit probably once a month maybe every two. I finally decided to buy one product at a time after each facial appointment and now own the entire acne line. I love...love...LOVE Dermalogica and my newly discovered clear skin.

            It made my skin feel greasy, it did NOT improve breakouts, and if not applied JUST right, it will pill, and you'll end up with little balls of product on your skin, which will in turn make it impossible to apply any other skin care product or make up. Thumbs down. The price range is just ridiculous, too. I spent a LOT of money on several Dermalogica products and I'm furious I wasted so much for such ineffective products.

                WOW this stuff really works! BUT you have to use it along with the oil control lotion. Yes it is expensive, but you only need to use it in the morning and you only need to apply a small amount.

                I have tried a million products for oily skin and none were effective at all. I used to have to use facial wipes to wash my face and re-apply makeup mid day because my skin was extremely oily. But with this cream I just use it once in the morning and my face is not oily at all!

                Give it a try! If it doesn't work for you all you need to do is return it for a full refund. You have nothing to lose!

                    Hello Sandy,

                    Clearing Mattifier is perfect for absorbing excess oil and regulating oil production. Apply a thin layer the clean skin in oily areas. The size of a grain of rice is enough for the T Zone. For very oily skin follow with Oil Control Lotion or Oil Free Matte SPF30. You may reapply Clearing Mattifier by dabbing a small amount over moisturizer and make up.

                    Hello Ebie,

                    Thank you for your inquiry. Clearing Mattifier can be used with Oil Control Lotion to help reduce oil production and keep skin shine free. Apply a very thin layer to skin in oily areas under Oil Control Lotion. You may also touch up with a small amout to reduce shin during the day.

                    Hello Cecilia,

                    Clearing Mattifier does not have sunscreen in it. We recommend using Oil Free Matte SPF 30 as daily moisturizer with sunscreen for oily skin. You can lay these two products for very oily skin. Clearing Mattifier would be applied in a very thin layer under Oil Free Matte SPF30 and can be used for touch ups during the day.

                  I have combination skin and am primarily interested in controlling the oil in my t-zone, specifically my nose. My question is if this product could be concentrated on my nose or t-zone only, underneath my primer and above my moisturizer. Or is there a better product I can use because my nose is the worst.

                    Hello Michelle,
                    Clearing Mattifier is the best product for this purpose. For best results apply Clearing Mattifier after toner to clean skin under moisturizer. It can be applied through out the day as well to spot treat shine. Clearing Mattifier will not only help to minimize shine, but reduce pore size as well. Use daily for best results.

                    A:

                    These products should be layered. Clearing Mattifier is a targeted treatment that absorbs and slows down oil production. It is applied in the morning in a thin layer directly on to clean skin and then layered with Oil Control Lotion. Oil Control Lotion is a moisturizer that has microsponges in it to absorb oil while hydrating an oily skin and can be used morning and night. For excess oil it is important to use a clay based masque like Sebum Clearing Masque 2-3 times a week. We hope this helps!
