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!

There are other products that work better, very disappointed with this one.
I use this product often but unlike most dermalogica products I haven't noticed much of a difference
I've been using this religiously for a good 4 years now. I started using it as I had a lot of acne on my forehead area, and now I can genuinely say I am spotless. I find it also reduced my acne scars and when it gets rid of a spot, i am not left with scaring. Very rare times it doesn't work for those REALLY persistent and stubborn spots in which I have to use a violent tactic which causes scarring but otherwise its perfect. Never looking back. You only need a small amount, for me one bottle lasts over a year.
I purchased this product 5 months ago in hopes of treating my breakouts, BUT after the first use, I had pimples on my temple areas, on both sides!
With my routine constant, it was obviously this new product, but I continued using it for 2 weeks just to see if it would improve.
To this very day, I am left with post-acne scars and dark spots that won't go away! To make matters worse, I have fair skin so these spots are visible from a mile away!
Not worth the money and the try!
I am a loyal Dermalogica customer, but this product was a disappointment. It dried out my skin and made my acne worse. The MediBac system works better with my skin.
The combination of these products have decreased my daughters acne with the exception of hormonal changes she has no active bumps. It also helped her get rid of 98% of her blackheads. She suffer terribly we tried MIcroderm, everything, this line finally took them away!!
This product is the best thing I've found so far, and I've had bad acne for about 8 years. It clears breakouts and prevents more. I only gave 3 stars because it is a little expensive which is hard to buy every other month with the soap while being a college student.
I love this product!!! I have never loved a product this much. If I have a blemish appearing on my skin, I wash and tone my face, then apply this product at night. The next morning the blemish is gone!! LOVE IT!!
-no sticky residue!
-doesn't dry out skin but also reduces oil!
-I wake up in the morning and my skin looks so much better!! my acne is reduced and my skin is soft and not oily!!!
-calms my skin! I have sensitive skin and this product has not bothered it at all!
-ONLY bad thing...the tube is small and won't last more than 2 months if you use it every night
Highly recommend this product!!!
I really like this product, it doesn't leave a sticky residue when you put the gel on at night. It is working so far and I will be trying other products in clear start line

Q:Should this be used every night; even when the skin appears to be clear?
Q:Can I use this with a moisturizer? And if, before or after applying this?
A:Always use a moisturizer! Even if your skin is oily, you need to be hydrating it, especially if you're using an acne clearing product like this one. The active ingredients can irritate and dry out your skin if you're not giving it some love too! If you're not prone to dry skin, the clearstart hydrating lotion would be great after this, or opt for a thicker cream, like the ones I've recommended.
