    Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Teen Acne Kit:

    I started with the whole acne line, I was recommended it by one of the technicians, and I saw that it had good reviews. Within a week of using it, not only did I see no improvement, my skin was more broken out than it had ever been, Two weeks in, I had the exact same problem spots, and they were just more aggravated, I decided to give the routine another week, because I thought maybe it was just my skin clearing up. I'm three weeks in now, and my acne and spots are at the worst they've been ever. Returning asap.

                    I bought this for my daughter who started breaking out at 11 years old. It worked great and cleared her up nicely within two days het skin looked great. She kept using it and then broke out in a rash on her neck jaw area. I think for her it's best just used when she breaks out otherwise I think it's too strong. I switched her to the ultracalm line for more every day use and I think it's clearing up.

                      Hi!
                      I bought the clear start kit for my 11 year old daughter who has breakouts along her forehead hair line and in t-zone area with oily skin.
                      Should she use the foaming wash and toner once daily?

                      Thanks for your help!

                        We recommend that she cleanse her skin morning and night everyday. Make sure that she has a moisturizer to keep her skin hydrated. Soothing Hydrating Lotion is a good choice for night time.

                        One someone that young we recommend starting with just the cleanser and moisturizer for a few days. You can add in the treatment products sparingly just on the breakouts. With a skin that fragile dryness and irritation is the main concern.

The ulta makeup worker advised I would buy clear start over the medibac kit because she believes it might be a hormonal thing? Does that sound right? Which one should I use? I want to make sure I get the right kit since I have tried about everything

                        Hello Kathy:

                        Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. We recommend that you use MediBac, it is formulated for Adult Acne which is usually related to hormonal fluctuations. Clear Start is formulated for teens where as MediBac is formulated for adults.

                        Best Regards,

                        The Dermalogica Team

                      Hi, I am a teen and i was just wondering if this would work well for me... I have tried many other products which help but only for a couple days. I have struggled with acne for almost a year now. I have dry and oily skin. Do you think this would work?

                        This line will work for your skin. We recommend only using the treatment products as spot treatments and not all over your skin to prevent over drying.

                      Hi I'm a teen 15 and I was wondering if this would work good for my skin I have some flat acne and not flat. I have a lot of acne though. If I was to start this how long does it take for people my age to start seeing results. I have tried everything but nothing seems to be helping I'm hoping this will?

                        Thank you for your inquiry. This kit should help to clear up your breakouts. You will normally see less breakouts within 2-3 weeks.

                      Hi I'm 32, female, and still breaking out. I have been using clear start for a month and have noticed a little improvement but it hasn't cleared my skin completely. Would the MediBac kit be a better idea? What would you recommend?

                        Thank you for your inquiry. We recommend that you use the MediBac line for adult acne. It is also important that you exfoliate and use the masque from this kit 2-3 times a week to address breakouts.

                      What is the difference between the clear start kit and the medibac kit? They both say they fight acne . I'm 30 years old with mild acne breakouts. What would you recommend ?

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Clear Start is for normal to moderate teen breakouts due to puberty. The MediBac line is for adult acne from chronic stress and hormonal breakouts. For your age we recommend that you use the MediBac line.
