An overnight treatment designed to help clear skin congestion and help prevent future breakouts. A Vitamin B complex of Niacinamide and Biotin combined with Zinc Gluconate, Yeast Extract, Caffeine and Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid soothes irritation, inhibits overactive sebaceous gland activity and purifies. Rosemary and Spiraea extracts inhibit the growth of acnegenic bacteria while stimulating the skin's natural antimicrobial agents for clearer, healthier skin. Salicylic Acid sloughs off pore-clogging skin cells to inhibit development of further breakouts, while naturally-antiseptic Tea Tree Oil assists in skin-healing. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

How it works:

  • Salicylic Acid sloughs off pore-clogging skin cells to inhibit development of further breakouts.
  • Niacinamide and Biotin combine with Zinc Gluconate, Yeast Extract, Caffeine and Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid to inhibit overactive sebaceous gland activity, purify to promote skin clarity and help calm irritation brought on by breakouts.
  • Naturally antiseptic Tea Tree Oil and Rosemary inhibit bacteria while Spiraea Ulmaria Extract stimulates the skin's natural anti-bacterial agents.
  • Green Tea soothes while Hyaluronic Acid hydrates.

Pretty Good

By CJ

from Illinois

Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

I got some free trials of this stuff and I will say that after one use I could see a difference in the size of my pimples and reduced redness. I don't think I will be purchasing anymore however because I used the acne clearing cleanser and it did nothing for my acne. But still Great Spot Treatment!

    Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

    I use this everynight after I wash my face before moisturizer. I love it! Works great at clearing acne, and when things do "pop up" it works fast to get rid of it. Not oily, which I also love.
    I do have to put a little bit heavier moisturizer on because it makes me a little dry and my lips went through a dry phase for a couple weeks when I first started using but soon returned to normal.

    Worth the price

    By Liz

    from Louisiana

    Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

    This is expensive but totally worth it. It lasts a long time since you only use it at night. I'm 31 and sill struggle with occasional breakouts. It's very hard to find products to treat acne without over-drying the skin and this does the trick. This clearing gel isn't greasy at all but it feels very moisturizing and soothing when I put it on my face. I use with the skin clearing wash and my skin looks great and feels very balanced. It's definitely not drying and irritating like some other salicylic acid treatments that I have used in the past. I will continue to purchase...just wish it wasn't so expensive.

    Works against my adult acne

    By Hannah

    from IL

    Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

    I'm 24 but I still get acne like a 15 yr old especially around my time of the month. I bought the acne kit and this comes with it. So happy I decided to try this brand. It actually clears my skin and doesn't totally dry my skin out. I honestly love that whole kit and it doesn't cost too bad.

      Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

      I feel like if I got the complete routine the effects would be better. But I just have 2 of them. So the results are fairly slow. I don't mind it. I love that my pores are shrinking already though.

      OVERNIGHT!!

      By LC

      from TX

      Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

      My skin was breaking out. I even had one of those deep pimples that you can't really see on the surface, but it hurts like crazy! after using the cleanser, I put a layer of this on my face before bed. I woke up this morning and GONE!! All of them!! I will forever have this product on hand. The trick is to make sure you put it on in a layer and don't try and rub it in.

          Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel:

          I'm in my 40s and have never had severe issues with acne until recently, and I never had dealt with inflammatory acne. None of my go-to acne creams/cleaners were working and the problem persisted for months. After reading the reviews, I purchased the Overnight Clearing Gel and applied twice a day using a Q-Tip. My red inflamed skin had a noticeable improvement in three days. My acne was competely gone in a week. I have darker spots where the acne was, but it's easily concealed and is continuing to fade. Worth every penny. I have combination skin. It did not dry out my skin.

                    A:

                    It sounds like your are becoming sensitized from your product. Are you using a moisturizer? We recommend not using Overnight Clearing Gel if your skin feels rashy. Please visit your closest Ulta and have the Dermalogica Skin Therapist look and your skin and advise what to use on your skin. It sounds like you would benefit from Ultra Calming Cleanser and Active Moist in your current condition. It is best to have someone look at your skin.
