Most Helpful Positive Review love it
I don't normally write reviews because I never feel the need to.. with that being said I am a 16 year old girl with moderate acne and my mom bought me the clear start sample kit and I noticed results within 3 days. It was awesome so we bought the bigger bottles and I am so happy with the way my face, chest and back have cleared up! I would recommend this to everyone!
Most Helpful Critical Review Wanted to love this!
I really wanted to love this, and it felt great on my skin! No new acne and my skin felt soft and smooth. Unfortunately, however, I believe I'm allergic to one of the main ingredients: Cocamidopropyl Betaine. I did a lot (I mean a LOT) of research on all the products I was using and what ingredients were in them, and I had suspicions it was this cleanser that was causing the dermatitis around my nose and chin. The area became very tender and stung. Apparently the Cocamidopropyl Betaine ingredient often causes cases of dermatitis on people with sensitive skin. I wanted to try the calming cleanser or the adult clearing wash but they have gluten in it and I'm celiac so I can't try those. I love all my other dermalogica products, unfortunately this one just didn't work for me. I'll keep trying! Definitely try this cleanser but be on the lookout for signs of irritation.

I have the absolute worst luck with acne-care products I'm general. I have tried EVERYTHING! But then I discovered this and was like, "what's the absolute worst that can happen?" I went through a whole bottle of this and it worked absolute wonders for me and my skin. For the first time in YEARS my skin felt legitimately clear. But here's the thing, when I bought a new bottle, it looked different and I didn't think much of it, but cut to me like 4-5 days late and I have a quarter of my face breaking out like crazy!
Not a fan
Steph813 from Florida
Bought this during the love your skin event, and was excited to try this brand. My skin is a little sensitive. I didn't like this face wash at all. I've used it a few times, and I'm probably just going to throw it away. I have combo skin, with light acne. This didn't do anything for my skin, and I didn't care for the smell. Honestly the foaming Aveeno with salicylic acid worked better for me
Stephanie from Colorado
I've tried a lot of products for my oily acne prone skin and this is the best one yet. Starts clearing up after just a few uses when I stopped using it while out of state acne started forming back but went away when I started using it again. Leaves my skins feeling clean but not dry or stripped. No bad odor from it. It does not remove makeup well so when I have makeup I use a very basic and more sticky face wash before to remove it all. This is my new and permanent face cleanser
I will buy again
Julissa from Highland, CA
This is my first time buying this product and I like it a lot. It helps control my breakout's and it also helps reduce my acne.
skin is still adjusting
Han from Texas
I have used this product over the past week and it's not terrible, my skin does get a little dry from it (but the weather could be affecting my skin too). This was gifted by Dermalogica and I'm grateful to be able to use it, I really do hope my skin turns around. But as of now, my skin is still adjusting.
super gentle! Doesn't strip the skin
KaylaJade from San Francisco
This is a great cleanser for oily and acne prone skin. It has a very light citrus smell which is really nice. It foams up but doesn't leave the skin dry or stripped. My skin felt super smooth and soft after using this. It keeps my acne at bay and doesn't helps to prevent from any new ones! This was gifted by Dermalogica.
Game changing acne wash
i spend too much at ulta from Nashville, Tennessee
I've used a lot of acne washes in my life but this one is the best I've tried. I had to stop using it for about a week when I left it with family by accident, broke out a few days later, then as soon as I got it back my breakout started clearing up. I have combo skin and use this in the morning in the shower then use a more gentle cleanser at night because this can be a bit drying.
Looking to combat acne? Give this a shot!
AB from Strongsville, Ohio
I have been struggling to find something to combat my acne! Gifted by Dermatologica.
My face has been oily lately causing several outbreaks on my skin. This product has made my skin feel smooth. I apply to my face, neck and chest. It has helped to reduce the breakouts I have seen and it has become an addition to my skin care routine.
I recommend this product if you are trying options to combat acne. I personally have my hormones in overdrive and it is causing the outbreaks, this product for me, hasn't dried my skin out and leaves my face feeling smooth!
Very good treatment
Steph from LA
I was so excited that Dermalogica let me try this out early! This was complimentary from Dermalogica. I love a foaming wash because I have sensitive areas on my face & don't really like that residue left behind like some treatment type soaps!
Would buy this again!
Nattie from California
This has been a miracle cleanser for me! I don't typically breakout, but when I do I try to treat it ASAP. I was shocked to see how well this worked because I could noticeably see the breakouts clear up by the day after using this cleaner. A little goes a long way with this product, and it has a nice refreshing citrus scent. I will definitely continue using this! *Gifted by Dermalogica for my honest review P
I would buy this again!
Tina from Florida
I received this complimentary from Dermalogica and love it! I've been getting breakouts on my back which has been out of the ordinary. I started using this two weeks ago and I think it is really helping with the breakouts. I like how the packaging is, and I have always trusted this brand.
Best foam ever I used
Khosh from Concord, CA
I have oily skin and most of the time acne occurs all over my face, neck and shoulders. Oils clogging my pores and acne and pimples make my skin looks too bad. After washing with this foaming wash I feel day to day my skin clears. Honestly this foam wash cleans pores and gives moisture to skin. I would continue this as this worked on my skin. Highly recommend this
Cindy from Florida
Great cleanser for those with oily and acne prone skin. It's not too harsh or super drying. Skin never feels tight after using this.
It's very affordable and I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is not super familiar with Dermalogica products but be warned it will make you want to use Dermalogica forever. I have combination skin that is probe to acne and I also have a few acne scars. I have been trying for the past year to improve my skin by using multiple products from different brands and Dermalogica is definitely worth it. It definitely helped to smooth out my skin texture and keep my skin looking healthy and young.
marxrawr from north Hollywood ca
the product made my skin a bit dry after but I would suggest adding a moisturizer after using this cleanser that will hydrate your skin , it took about 3-4 days till I noticed a sudden change to my acne . I tried this product on my back because I suffer from back acne and in two days I noticed a huge difference.this helped control my breakouts specially my hormonal acne.i like how this cleanser worked but didn't like how it was sticky

Navia from Austin texas
I get breakouts around my menstrual cycle time. I've been using this for a few weeks, that time of the month came around. I use this one a day in the morning, had a few pimples come up... washed at night time to help get rid of them. For the most part, it got rid of all but one. One made it to the surface, but washing twice a day got rid of it in 2 days. My skin is clearer, pimples gone but beware of dry out. I was gifted by Dermalogica (ulta Team)
I love this product
Andreiameg from Delray Beach, FL
My skin gets very oily around my period every month and after using this product that was gifted by Dermalogica (Ulta Team) my skin feels great. My skin doesn't feel tight after using this. The price is affordable and I like it doesn't have a strong smell. My skin feels clean and clear
Helped my acne clear up
julia from san bernardino
I started seeing results two weeks after using. My acne is finally clearing up and i cant thank
this product enough.
Michelle from El Paso Tx
Love the feeling of this after washing my face. This was gifted by dermalogica (ULTA team). Leaves it clean without having an oily feeling afterwards or to dry which is perfect! Leaves my skin pretty clean!
Deedee from Washington DC
I buy dermatologica products for my daughter and so
They both love all their products
love this one
skinchic from san diego
This is such a perfect foaming wash for what my skin needs right now! It has the best amount of lather and gets easily all over my trouble spots. I love to concentrate it on my tzone and temples to help make the active ingredients work better. I love that it does not feel stripped or dry after!

Salicylic Acid: this ingredient is helpful in controlling breakouts. It clears pores and removes trapped oils.
Tee tree oil- calms irritated skin
This product reminds me of another dermalogica cleanser- the Daily Glycolic Cleanser, which I love! They both have similar textures but the ingredients list is different.
The texture of this cleanser is soft and gel-like, almost like a syrupy texture. Unlike gel cleansers, this product foams up after massaging onto the face. After rinsing off with warm water, my face feels clean and soft without being "stripped". The cleanser feels gentle enough to use daily.
There is a very strong tea tree scent which I didn't like but once I rinse off, the scent is gone. This product contains tea tree oil so if you are sensitive to tea tree, this may not work for you.
This product comes with an interesting flip cover where you press a "bar" and the cover opens. This makes it easier for travel so that nothing leaks out.
Sara from Philadelphia, PA
this product which was gifted by Dermalogica (Ulta Team) is amazing. It has really changed my skin since I started using it by helping with my hormonal acne and making my skin way softer. I would definitely recommend it for people who are struggling with acne or just want a softer skin overall. The only thing you should be aware of is that it does have a scent like a cucumber soap smell.
This cleanser is the truth
CH from Union, NJ
I've been using this to help tackle hormonal acne that I get around my cycle and it has helped me out tremendously. I've also used it to tackle back acne and I've seen some progress there as well. It was gifted by Dermalogica (ULTA team) but I will be reordering this once it's done.
Nice and light
Irene from New York, NY
I received Clear Start Breakout Foaming Wash complimentary from Dermalogica (ULTA Team) in exchange for my unbiased review. I like how light and gentle it feels and I appreciate that it isn't strongly scented. It actually barely has a scent. I have sensitive skin and haven't noticed much redness since using this face wash.
I love this face wash
Jasa from Pittsburgh
I received this face wash complimentary from Dermalogica (ULTA TEAM). I have been using this for almost 2 weeks now and it has really helped w my hormonal acne not just on my face but back and chest. My skin is very sensitive so Im always afraid to try new products due to more breakouts. But that did not happen nor did it dry my face out like most acne products do. It legit my skin feeling fresh and smooth. I can tell the difference between my old face wash and this. Definitely gets all my bad oils off gently. Hoping that it continues to work because i love this and the brand!!
