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.

I had particularly stubborn adult acne and this product just didn't do it for me. Sorry :( Didn't irritate though, so that's a plus.

I use as a spot treatment or in trouble areas. Not daily just when the occasional breakout forms or my skins looking dull. Love this product. I can always rely on it in a skin emergency.

Works for me!

By 

from Minneapolis

Comments about overnight clearing gel:

I had my doubts. Because no clearing gel I've tried before as done anything at all. This clearing gel I dab a little before bed on a zit and witching 2 nights of doing this, it's gone or very faded. I'm really impressed at how well it works for me. I tend to get acne around my mouth and on my chin. I love this stuff.

Breakout control works better

By 

from NYC

Comments about overnight clearing gel:

I would use this product at night after cleansing and toning with the medibac range but never found it actually cleared pimples effectively. The gel would make my problem area feel tight but the next morning, I found the area would be just as red / bumpy as the night before. Sometimes a pimple would even get worse and hurt more than before using the product.

It was only recently I discovered the medibac breakout control and it definitely would say it clears much more effectively. It diminishes the appearance of the pimple and bumps are gone by the next morning. Although it isn't an 'overnight' treatment, I would recommend this over OCG.

Used every night for the past 2 years

By 

from NYC

Comments about overnight clearing gel:

I love it. It helps clear my postpartum adult acne that gets aggravated from living in a polluted city. Had a skin-mapping session in-store & this was recommended; couldn't afford to kit out my regime with everything at once but this was one of the first things I purchased that day & I've never looked back. Even when my skin is at it's worst flare ups, this doesn't make it sore, which is a god send, as anyone with acne will understand!

I really do feel that this helps to clear my spots up.

My new favorite line of products!

By 

from Cedar Rapids, IA

Comments about overnight clearing gel:

You guys! I'm in my twenties and have been fighting adult acne for years. My skin is confusing (oily on the top half, dry on the bottom and super sensitive all over) so it's near impossible to take care of it all in one quick swoop... not to mention the dry part of my skin is where I'm prone to cystic breakouts. I started using this product in a trial pack about two weeks ago and I'm telling you, I've already seen and felt the difference. I can put this product all over my face at night and it will manage the skin according to what it needs... even if that's different for different parts. After finishing out my trial size, I ordered the full sized bottle because it's really made that much of a difference for me.

Awesome-Sauce!!!

By

Comments about overnight clearing gel:

I love this acne gel! The only draw back I've found is that it doesn't work as quickly as I'd like on my spots. However, it is very effective over a three-day treatment.

  • Q:

    Why can a moisturizer not be applied over top? Should this be used as a spot treatment or can I put it on my entire face, avoiding the eye area?

      A:

      Hello,

      This is a hydrating gel. There is no need to apply moisturizer on top since it hydrates the skin on its own. It should be applied to areas with acne only. If you have a full face of acne, you can apply it to the entire face.

      Kind Regards,

    I've been using Overnight Clearing Gel for months but I just realized I may have been applying it incorrectly with my other Dermalogica products. Can you explain the order in which I should be applying these products after cleansing? I currently use MultiActive Toner, Active Moist, and Overnight Clearing Gel after using Precleanse and Special Cleansing Gel.

      Hi Sam,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Overnight Clearing Gel alone at night. Apply either toner and follow with Overnight Clearing Gel.

      During the day, you can use Breakout Control or Clearing Mattifier over toner and under SPF.

  • Q:

    I am using the special cleansing gel along with the powerbright line to treat post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I still get breakouts, can I add the overnight clearing gel to my routine? I am also experiencing some dryness and I am typically oily. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      A:

      Hi Dana,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Overnight Clearing Gel can help to reduce breakouts. Breakout Control is a spot treatment that can be used morning and night under serum and moisturizer. You can also use Daily Microfoliant (daily) and Charcoal Rescue Masque (once or twice a week) to brighten Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation and to prevent future breakouts.

  • Q:

    Firstly, I have read on some sites, which are quite famous for their knowledge about skin, that salicylic acid and niacinamide should never be combined in one product because the result maybe very terrible for human skin. Nevertheless, this product contains both of them and it concerns me greatly. Can you guarantee that this combination is safe enough?
    Secondly, I use this product as a leave-on treatment daily (because of 2%salicylic acid), is that okay?

      A:

      Dear A,

      On occasion, the press publishes an article which falsely states that ingredients used primarily in cosmetic products, are unsafe. The truth of the matter is, there is no evidence of harm.

      Based on the scientific evidence and evaluation, it is the conclusion of the International Dermal Institute that the use of these ingredients is safe to use in Dermalogica products. We would not put ingredients in products if we thought they could harm the skin.
