    Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment:

    I have been struggling with acne for quite a while now. One day my skin will be completely clear in the morning and by the end of the day I can see pimples starting to form, mostly smaller cystic acne. Once I break out it takes weeks or months to have just one day of almost perfectly clear skin. This stuff makes me wake up with clearer skin!

      I know this is for teens but I'm in my 30s and still struggle with acne from time to time. I've been using this for about 2 weeks and have already noticed a big difference! I had several consistent pimples on my chin and cheeks and now they're almost gone. My skin is smoother and seems less oily. With the price of this product, it can't hurt to try and see if it will work for you!

      Not bad for teen acne product for adult use. It's a little slimy clear gel, but doesn't not dry sticky or tacky. It dries fast on the skin and leave a silky feel of clean soft skin. I love the way this treatment makes my skin feels. It has helped to clear up my large pores. Yet to be seen how well this will work in the hot humid summers in Georgia.

        Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment:

        I have been using this product for several (3-4) years now and absolutely love it. Every now and again, I try to venture out and try a new product to help with my acne, but I always come back to the Dermalogica Clear Start products. They keep my skin feeling feeling fresh and moisturized. This overnight cream feels very light and refreshing on my skin, and does not cause any stinging, which can so often be the case with acne products. To sum it up: if you haven't tried the Dermalogica clear start line, I would highly recommend that you do so.
        (I use their face wash, toner, overnight treatment and pore scrub. I do not use their daytime moisturizer as that did cause stinging for my skin.)

          Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment:

          It makes me so sad to spend so much money on a skin care product, however there's really just no comparison. I'm an adult using the teen serum because it has the salycilic acid I need without crazy drying my skin. Dermalogica is the best brand I've found after 15 years of searching.

            After having my 12 year old son on two different prescription acne meds that burnt and dried out his skin and trying just about every OTC product on the market this product along with the foaming wash is amazing. It soothes the skin minimizing the inflammation. He's only been using it for about 6 days and his forehead looks so much better. I've recommended this to all my friends with teens.

                Feels great after cleansing, before bedtime. Works best for larger areas and large pores where you're prone to getting blackheads & whiteheads. More as preventative or when you first detect a pimple. I would still use salicylic acid 2% gel for spot treating pimples.

                  I was pleasantly surprised with how good this stuff is. I bought this in store after running out of my DDF treatment (which is now online only). I have combo, sensitive, acne prone skin. I use this at night after cleansing and using the Peter Thomas Roth Max Correction pads. When used regularly, this definitely helps to keep my skin clear, but this product is unique because it does not dry my skin out at all. In addition to the salicylic acid, it has cucumber extract, which soothes and hydrates. finally, it doesn't have an offensive smell like some of the other acne treatment products. I love this stuff and will continue to buy!

                      It depend on your breakouts. You can use it all over to prevent new breakouts if you are prone to all over breakouts or you can spot treat if you only breakout in small areas.

                      Hello KC:

                      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. While using the Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment you do not need to use a moisturizer because it contains Cross-Linked Hyaluronic Acid which delivers moisture to the skin. Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment is meant to be used alone however, if you need more hydration you may use a moisturizer on top of it such as Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. The Clear Start products are for normal teen breakouts due to puberty. If you are an adult we recommend using the MediBac line, Overnight Clearing Gel to treat breakouts due to chronic stress and hormonal imbalances.

If you are very sensitive we do recommend using Breakout Control instead as it is better suited for very sensitive skin. Only apply to areas of breakouts to avoid over use.
