            I have tried everything, and if your skeptical like I always am well this product really is for you! I suffer from Adult Acne, im 31! This though after 1 use- yes 1 use drastically calmed my skin, and made my complexion look like new, without the burn. I like that this product finally put my skin in check. This is not an infomercial, this is the truth. Thank God for something that works.

              I've never had horrible acne, but I did have the occasional hormonal break out and some enlarged pores as well as scarring and this has completely changed my skin! I don't even get hormonal breakouts anymore and my skin is smooth and my pores and scarring had disappeared since using this product!

                  This is a great product for acne prone skin. I have sensitive skin, and find that with daily use it can be drying. However if I use it every 2 to 3 days it works wonders for my skin.

                  • Q:

                    Hello, I am 23 years old and I suffer from hormonal and stress-related breakouts as well as fairly oily skin with blackheads/whiteheads. My skin has cleared up a lot over the last couple of years but I am still not happy with it and haven't been able to find products that I really love. I also tend to break out in my chest and on back pretty often, which I believe is related to my birth control pill and stress. I'm hoping you can point me in the right direction for what product(s) I should try. Thank you!

                      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.

                      Foaming Wash would be a great choice for you. It works best as part of the Clear Start system. We offer these products in a kit so you can maximize your results. Daily Microfoliant can also be used to address your breakouts and pigmentation.

                  • 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.
