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 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.
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.
This is a great primer to wear under make up! Not oily
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.
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.
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!
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.
This was great at keeping oil at bay but the moisturiser stung the area around my eyes and after about 2 days I developed a red, painful rash and dry skin on the area around my eyes so i was a little disappointed...
this product is awesome for people who have skin like mine that is young and just out of their teens but can have that occasional breakout from acne in there forehead!
