              Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash:

              I have always struggled with acne - some times mild and other times I want to hide in a dark room. I use this morning and night per my esthetician's recommendation and I will never use another product. A little goes a lonnng way, so $20 for the bottle is nothing. I use a makeup wipe to remove my makeup, then wash my face with this product. Now I have oily skin, and it really builds up at night so I don't use a moisturizer on top. I spot treat with tea tree oil. Wake up, wash my face again and use The Body Shop's tea tree mattifying lotion before my makeup -- absolutely in love!

                            There is always an adjustment period to new products however if a product is causing irritation and more breakouts than before we recommend switching to a different cleanser, Special Cleaning Gel is not as active as this cleanser.

                        • Q:

                          I've use Dermalogica products for years now and swear by them, at least for my skin. I am having a problem finding a problem that helps all parts of the body, not just not my face and neck stay clean. I have found a regiment through Dermalogica that helps keeps my face in check but still have problems with other parts of my body like my back and such. I was hoping Clear Start foaming was was the answer but every review I read focused on how great it was for the face and not much else of the body. I just don't want to do buying this product if it is meant more so for your face and not so much for the rest of your body. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
                          Thank you.

                            This cleanser will help however you will also need to exfoliate and use an absorbing masque to clear up skin. Clear Start Blackhead Clearing Pore Control Scrub can be used as a scrub and masque 3-5 times a week.

                          I'm 17 and have had super bad acne on my cheeks, forehead, ect. My skin is oily/combo and very sensitive. Should I use this one or would you recommend another one? I have used about every product on the market over the course of 3 years giving my acne time to get used to the product but nothing ever works! I know my sister uses this brand and her skin is flawless! Help please!:(

                            This cleanser would be great for your skin condition however, you will need to use it as part of a system and be consistent with it. We recommend also using Daily Superfoliant, Skin Refining Masque and Breakout Control to treat breakouts. Ultra Calming Mist and Active Moist will help to keep your skin from becoming dehyrated.
