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!

Awful

By 

from newcastle

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

Wow so disappointed. I was desperately trying to find a moisturiser that contained SPF for my oily skin. I thought a brand like Dermalogica would be a great product. So wrong. As soon as I applied it my face had a horrible shimmer/sheen, within 30 minutes my face was shiny greasy and felt like it had a film. I never applied make up and if I did it would have slid off. I sent the product back for a full refund.

Burns

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

I bought the clear start kit after trying other Dermalogica products for oily skin. But this oil clearing matte moisturizer burns my face and leaves red dry spots especially around my eyes.

Does what it says

By 

from Edinburgh, Scotland

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

I apply this morning and night after cleaning my face and using toner. I have oily/combination skin and it has made my skin really smooth and keeps it matte for a while! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a light moisturiser.

Gave me a rash everywhere on my face

By 

from London

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

I started using this clear start kit in big sizes only a couple of weeks ago. And I love how the porescrub, nightime treatment and all over toner works. However when I started using the matt moisturiser my skin got worse. I like how matte it is, but in the afternoon I found out that my skin was red everywhere. My face was so hot. The next day it got even worse; there was a rash every on my face. I never put any products on my face when I went through this. It lasted about 1 whole week and my skin is really dry from it. I was hoping to buy the daytime treatment, but seeing as the matte moisturiser went horribly, I won't be purchasing anything.

I'll Keep Buying This!

By

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

This one feels so amazing on my skin! I have mild adult acne, and i pair this with a mix of the medibac and Clear Start line. I'm in love with how it leaves my skin!

It burns.

By 

from Chisinau

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

Because I use the foaming wash, I decided to try the matte moisturizer also, but as soon as I applied to my skin my skin start burning, also I get red spots all over my face. I had to wash it off and it still burns. Probably not a good idea to use it unless you have a really really bad acne skin and you're ready to try anything. Maybe a warning on the package would be useful, as a lot of the reviews state that it has adverse effects.

Made me break out

By

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

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

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

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

Comments about oil clearing matte moisturizer spf15:

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 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.
