Nine fresh products just for teens and young adults.
Clear Start™ was created by the skin health experts at Dermalogica, the brand that’s been changing the face of skin care for more than 25 years. It became clear that no one was addressing the needs of teens – not only with products that get results, but also with the education they need – when Dermalogica Founder Jane Wurwand’s own daughters entered their teenage years.
Skin care product choices available to teens may be ample, but they aren’t good choices. Products for teens often contain harsh and inexpensive ingredients to strip the skin of oil, and are filled with artificial fragrances and colors – all things that can irritate and strip oil from skin, causing more problems than you started with!

I have been using this for years, it is such good value for money and it keeps my skin so clear! It smells great too! I love that it isn't as 'cakey' as most scrubs, plus it makes a great mask!
this product is totally worth the money. Scrubs areas for the blackheads without being too rough on the skin
I've been using this product for 3 months now with zero results. Also it smells pretty bad. I usually love Dermalogica products, but this one really missed the mark for me.
My 12 year old son really struggles with acne and large pores with stubborn blackheads. I tried my exfoliators on him as part of at-home weekend "facials." They were too harsh for him and he had little red bumps afterward. But he is able to use the Clear Start scrub with no problem, and uses it regularly because he likes the feel of it (yahoo)! It reduces oiliness, for him doesn't get rid of the blackheads completely, but does seem to shrink them and make them less noticeable.
I cant say I have used this product long enough to give a review based on its main purpose of pores and blackheads (I assume from title). However, I absolutely LOVE it as an exfoliator! I have combination skin and tend to get flaky areas in the colder months, this has helped with that from the first time of use. NO more flakes! Zero!!! I was so self conscious about it before, so i would continue to buy this product, just for that. Would highly recommend, skin feels so velvety and smooth after use.
I am 28 this year and in the last two years I have had very hormonal skin after coming off the contraceptive pill. Within days of using this product my skin had cleared. It's brilliant for marks and scars as well as breakouts and blackheads. I have been using it daily and it has not dried out my skin. I am now purchasing my second tube as well as trying the foam wash.
I started using dermatologica after I received the clear start toner spray in my ipsy bag. When I went to purchase the full size toner, there was a free sample of this acne scrub. Within 2 days of using this product, my face cleared up so much! I rushed out and bought this scrub in full size. My face is less oily and my breakouts are very much reduced. My face feels so clean after using and the product is not harsh at all for my sensitive skin. Love the smell and texture too! Highly recommend!!
I have patchy skin (in some places its oily and in others its dry) so I tried a sample of this and some of the other products but this was deffinately the best out of them all. My face feels brilliant every time I use it, the dry bits don't feel dry any more and the same with the oily parts not to mention how clear my face is I love it!!!
I am 24 with dryish skin...I have this and the daily microfoliant. I've been using this at night and have been seeing a bigger difference. I have dry skin and hasn't dried it out at all. It took a couple weeks for me to see my skin minimize in poor size across my nose/cheeks. It definitely has helped with the issue I've been having more so than the daily.
I've only been using this face scrub for 4 days now and I can see a massive difference already!! Even after the first day I saw a difference and that is no exaggeration. For years I've been trying various products to help combat my spots, blackheads and oily skin and nothing has come close to this. I'm so happy I've finally found it! :D Would recommend this scrub to anyone who wants beautiful skint.
