    This is a gentle Product that I use to eliminate blackheads on my nose. I put a small amount on my nose every night after cleansing and before bed. It has been working slowly and gently. I see results including reduction of pore size.

    Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

    I do not typically write reviews but this was worth a review. I finally found something that does what it tells you it will do. You can count on it every time. I have problems with hormonal breakouts and blackheads. The congestion is the worst on my chin because I will get blackheads/whiteheads that will sit there forever and wont come to a surface, and the small pores there do not help. This gel gets them to the surface overnight so you can properly extract them, it is crazy! I debated on getting this because of the price but it is well worth it, and the bottle will last forever because you only need a very small amount.

          Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

          I am prone to cystic acne and will occasionally break out on my face and other areas. I love this product because it does not use peroxide which can bleach clothing or linens if it is not completely dry. This also soothes irritated skin and does not dry my skin like benezoyl peroxide can do.

            Dermalogica products are the reason why today my skin is clear and beautiful. I use this line to effectively and gently fend off my what was aweful case of adult acne two years ago. Since then I use this line to maintain a complexion so clear I do not have to wear make up most days to feel comfortable in my skin. This particular product is the strongest one in keeping my skin clear yet it does not over dry my skin. I use this at night and I use the clear mattifier during the day. Be sure to wear sunblock moisturizer during the day. They have travel sized kits that you can try the set without paying such a steep price.

                Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

                I first started using this product when a floor associate recommended it to me for my occasional breakout. However, when I brought it home and used it, applying with clean fingers, I woke up to even more breakouts.
                At first I thought my skin was "purging" but months later I realized it aggravated even more breakouts, so i threw the bottle out!

                Months later, I started seeing a skin therapist at Ulta, who does AMAZING things to my skin. She recommended I use the clearing gel, but with a q-tip/cotton swab so as not to spread bacteria around with my finger. This tiny piece of advice meant all the difference. It works wonders on sore, open zits and fading acne scars. I apply it at night, using a fresh q-tip for each bad zit or breakout and it's diminishing quite quickly!!

                I only give it 4 stars because it is expensive, messy (once the lid burst and spilled all over my car), and the instructions really should be better to avoid worsening skin conditions.

                  Im 18 and I had terrible acene I still have acene but I have noticed a huge difference since I started using this product. I found that if I feel a breakout coming I apply this at night and in the morning its pretty much gone. I do try and use it every night but I do forget on occasion but if I have something big to do the next day I make sure I dont forget this product because it just evens out my skin. Its not a light weight product you can feel it on your skin but its not drying or heavy.

Will this product decrease the amount of time a cyst is on your face? If so, by how much?

                      Hello Bernadette,

                      It is difficult to say how acne is going to act with new products. With the degree of acne that you have described it is unlikely that an over the counter brand, like Dermalogica would clear up your skin completely. Since you are under a doctor's care please make sure that the products you are using are ok to use with your medication. If you are taking any medication (oral or topical) that dry your skin and make it more sensitive, we recommend focusing on inflammation and sensitivity. Our Ultra Calming line works really well for dehydrated skin with acne. For best results it is always best to go into an Ulta and be face Mapped.

                      Hello Isis,
                      Thank you for your inquiry. Overnight Clearing Gel has a small amount of salicylic acid in it and can cause irritation if used too much. While this product can be used every night, this can be too much for some skin types. If you have experienced redness and sensitivity with this product please stop using for several days and then reintroduce using 3-4 times a week. Please contact us with any further questions.

                    Will this help with blackheads/clogged pores or should I try something else? I already use the cleanser, mattifier, matte lotions (daytime) and active moist (night time).

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, Overnight Clearing Gel will help with congestion. We also suggest exfoliating and using a clay based masque regularly. Gentle Cream Exfoliant and Sebum Clearing Masque should be used 2-3 times a week for clear skin. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Special Clearing Booster is a 5% benzoyl peroxide and is the strongest acne over the counter ingredient you can purchase without a prescription. You can use Overnight Clearing Gel and Special Clearing Booster at the same time. Apply a thin layer of Overnight Clearing Gel and the place a small amount of Special Clearing Booster on breakouts. Please contact us with any further questions.

                      Hello Jane,

                      Thank you for your inquiry. Overnight Clearing Gel is a nighttime treatment product to prevent and heal breakouts. This product contains a high amount of hyaluronic acid and can be used alone or under moisturizer if more hydration is needed. Special Clearing Booster is a spot treatment and is intended to be used only on an active breakout to kill bacteria and dry out breakouts. We hope this helps to clarify the difference between these two products. Please contact us with any further questions.

                      Overnight Clearing Gel does provide light hydration, but if your skin requires additional moisture, you can certainly apply a lightweight moisturizer such as Oil Control Lotion over it.
