mediBac clearing®

Clearer skin starts now: bring the four contributing factors of acne under control.

The MediBac Clearing® system works to treat, clear and prevent adult acne while addressing the needs of adult skin. Most products and treatments for acne are designed for teenage skin, making them too harsh and irritating for adult acne sufferers. MediBac Clearing® controls acne without compromising skin’s integrity, which means skin is clearer and healthier.

how it works

Dermalogica’s MediBac Clearing® system is formulated specifically to treat adult acne. Each product, with its unique acne-fighting and clearing ingredients, is designed to be layered upon the skin to provide around-the-clock, maximum control of the main factors that contribute to acne.

Less Blemishes

By 

from Portland, Oregon

Comments about clearing mattifier:

This product is no cure all clear skin POOF! But, since using every day, I have noticed a drop in overall blemishes that I have from hormonal acne around my chin. It goes on smooth and creates a matte finish - it works kind of like a primer in a way.

Amazing!

Comments about clearing mattifier:

I've used other products that claim to do that same thing as this but never with results this good. I worried that it might feel heavy or not hold up to its claims, but I took a risk anyway. Glad I did! Great for my somewhat oily skin without drying it out. Works well alone or under makeup.

Disappointed

By 

from Calgary, AB

Comments about clearing mattifier:

Was really excited to try this product. Unfortunately, the product gave off a funny smell when using it which became nauseating. I had to stop using it. Really disappointed since it is quite an expensive product.

Best product of its kind!

By 

from Alexandria, VA

Comments about clearing mattifier:

I have combination skin, and have suffered from acne on my chin, nose, and forehead since my teens. I've been using this product on my t-zone every morning for about a year now, and it has truly improved my skin. It has helped reduce the blemishes I get to almost zero. It helps to control oily shine, and has improved the overall condition of my skin. It is very concentrated, so a tube lasts me for several months. I'm so glad I found this product!

Love the smooth feeling after applying

By 

from Forest lake, MN

Comments about clearing mattifier:

I applied this for the first time and felt my skin and it felt amazing! It does a pretty good job of mattifying my skin, but it's not mousterizing enough to use alone after washing. I use active moist and blot it on my skin.

Comments about clearing mattifier:

My Dermalogica technician recommended this product to me and I love it! I have super oily skin during the summer and this amazing product controls my shiny skin, reduces the size of my pores, and treats any potential acne hiding under the surface. This is definitely a must buy for anyone with oily skin!

      Dear Amy,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Breakout Control is a spot treatment. Clearing Mattifier is to control oil and pores. You can use Clearing Mattifier under SPF during the day and Breakout Control, under moisturizer, at night.

    Does this product have a tint and is it subtitle for darker complexions? Can you wear it as a primer?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Clearing Mattifier is completely clear. You can use the size of a pea for the whole face under an SPF like Oil Free Matte SPF 30. This combination works fantastically to keep the skin matte and shine free all day. It works excellently under makeup as well.

      Kind Regards,
      The Dermalogica Team

  • Q:

    is there silicone in this product? If so what type, and will the acne clearing properties help to prevent any adverse reactions caused by silicone?
    Asked on 8/1/2016 by TrishS from FL

    1 answer

    • A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The dimethicone in this product is excellent to prevent dryness that can be common with some acne products. It also mattes out the skin. The Salicylic Acid will prevent breakouts. Finally, this product will shrink the size of the pore by 30% in 6 weeks.

      Kind Regards,

      The Dermalogica Team
