part of clear start product system

Nine fresh products just for teens and young adults.

learn more

clear start

Clear Start is a system of nine serious products that utilize medicated ingredients and soothing botanicals to deliver real results.

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.

how it works

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!

Made me break out

By

I was struggling with acne for nearly 10 years, but over the past 6 months due to a new topical treatment it had gone away. However, my skin is still extremely oily. I mean, when I wash it, it gets shiny in oily in 20 minutes. Thus, this product seemed perfect. I tried it in the shop and, indeed, my skin was not as oily after 20 minutes and felt fresh.

However, after purchasing the moisturiser it was a letdown. Some of my acne started coming back after a week of using it (the only change in my very strict skincare routine). I just assumed that my skin is adjusting, but, unfortunately, it only got worse, so I had to stop using the product after 3 weeks.

It does minimise oil and shine, but not stop it completely. Also, I found the moisturiser more drying than hydrating altogether.

Does Everything It Promises

This product is great, and it delivers everything that it says it will. After using this product my skin glows but is not oily or greasy. Also the SPF is great, especially for me because a moisturizer without SPF is a deal breaker for me. This also works great under makeup.

Gave me red, dry, puffy eyes

By 

from London, UK

Verified Buyer

I thought I was allergic to something in this however, after reading other reviews, I am not so sure. I used this for a time a few months back, I noticed stinging when first applied and wanted to remove it but thought that was how it was meant to work, then used it yesterday and now have swollen and dry eyes. I would not recommend this product as it seems to have similar effects on other users and had a pretty painful and frustrating experience with this product. Other Dermalogica products have worked well for me but this has put me off a bit.

Brun and flakes

By 

from Oslo, Norway

Verified Buyer

I had high hopes for this product because it had everything I wanted: moisture, SPF, oil control, mattifying and help to get rid of acne. But this product falls short.

I've used it for a bit over a month now, and I don't see any help with oil control or mattefying. I have oily skin, but it's worst in the T-zone, but this product even makes the rest of my face even shinier!

When I put the product on it often flakes, so I feel like I can't message the product in properly. My acne has not been better or worse than before, so no result there. And I feel like the product in the first hour of wearing it is drying for the skin. And on top of that, my skin starts to burn the first half hour after putting it on.
So this is basically a really bad SPF cream.

Overall Burns

By 

from Omaha, NE, USA

I received a sample of the Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer from Lovely Skin while buying the Clear Start Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash and Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment. I did my normal routine of foaming wash then overnight treatment and instead of using the Intensive Moisture Balance, I used the Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer. First the smell got me, i notice it didn't soak into my skin. It kinda just laid on top and my face felt tight and dry. Then I went and laid into bed and my face was burning and my eyes were watering from the sting. I had to wash it all off, I think a product should feel good to put onto the skin and this was not.
Love Dermalogica but I think this product missed the mark!

Does not mattify

By 

from Undisclosed

Verified Buyer

I have combination skin, so I needed something that would moisturize and keep my oily skin at bay. While this does moisturize well, it does burn for a few minutes after application and I find that the product itself feels very oily. It makes my skin look oilier and does not mattify at all. I'm very disappointed since I do use the clear start cleanser and have found it works wonders.

I have only used this twice. First time was fine second time it was like it wasn't soaking into my skin so as I rubbed I was getting white build up on my face instead of it absorbing.... very strange.

      Thank you for your inquiry. Oil Free Matte Moisture is a light moisturizer that can be worn under make up for daily use. This moisturizer will help to absorb excess oil and help keep a matte finish for oily skin.

      I would not wear it under foundation because I've had problems with it flaking of/into the foundation when I put it on.

  • Q:

    Can I use this morning and night, or just the morning
    Asked on 4/12/2015 by Muffinman from Sydney NSW, Australia

    1 answer

    • A:

      Thank you for your inquiry. It is recommended that you only use this moisturizer in the daytime due to the SPF in it. Sunscreen is not needed at night. If you would like an oil controlling moisturizer for night time Oil Controlling Lotion would be the best option. It has micro sponges and light hydration to balance oily skin without sunscreen. Please contact us with any further questions.
