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.

So disappointed..

I use a lot of Dermalogica skin products. So when I read great reviews about this product, I also wanted to try it. I've used it three times and the spots I applied this product are left with red patches.. My face looks worse than before. I'm so disappointed and I really don't know what to do to get rid of these red patches from my face.

Irritation free

Most spot treatments irritate my skin and make it itch, but I do not have that problem with this one and it makes the zit disappear within a few days 90 percent of the time. I always make sure to moisturize too when I use this, so my skin does not dry up, but the zit still goes away.

Love this product!

I'm 21 and I have been struggling with Type 1 acne for the past year. I tried other products targeted towards acne but never noticed any improvements in the amount of breakouts I was getting. I am SO glad I bought this product! I use it as a spot treatment twice per day when I wash my face and sometimes I will add a small amount to my moisturizer to cover more areas. When I use it as a spot treatment, 80% of the time the pimple has dramatically reduced in size and will eventually disappear after several days. I will continue to buy this product. If only it came in a larger bottle!

Best Daily Acne Product On The Market!

I use this product once a day after removing my makeup and it's done wonders for my skin! It's not too drying, but it doesn't make my skin oily either. It's great for those who need a consistent acne treatment that won't damage and dry out your skin. If I skip a few days of using it, I notice a huge difference! I'll never run out of it again, it's the holy grail of acne boosters!

It does what it says!

It works! sometimes, it takes a day for blemishes to go away. sometimes, 2 days. Sometimes, 4 days. I guess it depends on how horrible the acne is.

I would recommend this product. It will leave a dry patch in the morning, so be prepared to moisturize!

      I alternate them

      Answered on 8/1/2016 by Jopet from Houston, TX, USA
    • A:

      Yes, this can be used with other products such as the overnight clearing gel. Use the booster for spot treatment during the day or right before bed, then follow up with the clearing gel before bed.

      me personally, i would replace the OCG with the Special Clearing Booster.

      Answered on 6/10/2014 by MissyTalksAlot from Houston, TX
    • A:

      When needed I use a thin layer of overnight clearing gel on my entire face and then a small amount of special clearing booster on the actual blemish. It works great for me every time :)

      Answered on 3/24/2014 by Jenm from Philadelphia, PA, USA
    • A:

      Yes, you may use both of these products together. Overnight Clearing Gel is applied all over clean skin at night and Special Clearing Booster is a spot treatment only to be used on breakout as needed for day and night.
