    Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Kit:

    I bought this kit for my 16 year old daughter, it is working well. I wouldn't say her skin is cleared up 100% but it looks a lot better. I think with continued use it will only get better and better. Love that the toner is a spray, it makes it super fast and easy to apply that way.

              I have combination skin and was referred to the Dermalogica line. The breakout kit worked great. I love the toner spray and the way my skin feels after using this product.

              Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Kit:

              I've struggled with acne on my forehead and chin for a while now and have this a shot. I felt like I saw improvements in one day and I was so excited. But after two days my face got really itchy and swollen. I must have been allergic to one or possibly all of the products. I was kind of upset because my skin really seemed to improve fast with this.

                I use this product morning and night; results started showing about a week after use. My skin felt so much clearer. I really like that the toner comes in a spray bottle. Makes application easier. The day and night applications are very light weight which makes it nice to wear make up over. I also like the matte moisturizer but I bought another dermalogica moisturizer that is also light weight. One con to that is the moisturizer is about 40$. Overall the product is great and I would recommend it to anyone with blemish problems.

                    Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Kit:

                    I was recommended to try this product after I received a gifted ultra facial. I was desperate to try anything and I have tried just about everything and have been to SEVERAL estheticians and dermatologists trying to clear up my acne but they have all failed. I started out with this kit and used it until the kit was pretty much gone. I liked all of the products and i knew this would be my new go to product until i found something better. At first I only saw minor improvements in my skin and was on the search of something new. I went to a different esthetician who told my my skin was looking amazing and she had to do very minimal extractions and told me i was her easiest client all day. She convinced me to keep using the product because it was really working for my skin whether i had noticed right away or not. She didn't try to sell me on any of her products that she endorsed because she felt confidently that the products i was using would clear up my skin. So i bought the bigger versions of everything in this kit and fast forward four months...which i still have not fully used up those first bottles that i have bought and i use it twice a day if not more...my skin is CLEAR! I mean i have no zits AT ALL. I used to have new acne daily and now I get one or two every other week or so but that is TOTALLY manageable for me. Honestly i don't even remember what it was like to have so much acne anymore and I do not take it for granted at all. I never thought it was possible for my skin to look and feel this amazing without acne. I will not be switching products for a long time. I SWEAR by this product especially if you are one to try everything...it is DEFINITELY worth a shot.

                    - I was told to use these products after my $65 facial at The Salon.
                    I do think it is clearing up the current acne, but i'm paying the price with super dry, flakey skin after 1 week of use.
                    This stuff is expensive, so I most likely won't buy it again.
                    I am going to continue to try it, but it might go back...not all products are for everyone.

                          Hello Stephany,

                          Thank you for your inquiry. The best option for marks left from acne would be our Power Bright products. The Power Bright kit will last you 3-4 weeks. To enhance the brightening benefits you can use Skin Resurfacing Cleanser everyday. Please contact us with any further questions.

                          Since your acne is an ongoing issue and you are now in college, we recommend using the MediBac segment. As you enter adulthood, chronic stress is a major contributing factor of adult acne. We recommend getting Face Mapped at ULTA to ensure that these are the best products for your skin. Acne is a challenging condition, and it is important to be consistent with your regimen, specifically exfoliating and using the Sebum Clearing Masque 2-3 times a week. Also, always be careful with sun exposure. Breakouts can easily result in hyperpigmentation that lasts for months. Use Oil Free Matte SPF30 everyday as moisturizer to absorb oil, protect and hydrate. We hope this info helps!

                          Dermalogica's Clear Start line is formulated to be tough on breakouts without over drying or sensitizing teen skin. The same qualities of ingredients are used in the teen line as the trusted Dermalogica line. The Clear Start segment works best when used consistently as a system. Breakout Clearing Foam Wash should be used twice a day, followed by All Over Toner. Depending on your daughter's skin's needs, she will use the appropriate treatment products followed by Matte Moisture SPF15 or Overnight Treatment. This system also has an exfoliant and a masque that is hydrating and antibacterial. All of the Clear Start products have soothing botanicals and calming ingredients to ensure that the skin does not become dehydrated. We hope this info helps!

                          You are correct that the Clear Start line has more scent than our regular products. These scents come from botanicals for beneficial purposes and smell very clean and natural. In no way do products smell feminine. We are confident that your son will get results from the Clear Start line and enjoy the fresh scent of the products.

                          Yes, the products in this kit effectively treat all forms of acne including hormonal acne. However, if your acne is hormonal, you may need to see your doctor to completely stop the breakouts. The products help treat the acne, but not the underlying cause.

                          The products within this kit are formulated with active acne-fighting ingredients salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. If you have sensitivity to either of these ingredients, we recommend consulting your physician prior to use or conducting a patch test to ensure that you experience no irritation before applying as directed.
