I absolutely LOVED the dermalogica Breakout Clearing Booster!!! This stuff is fantastic. I couldn't believe how fast it would clear my breakouts with just one application overnight. I have never had such great results!! I am so very excited to have found this product and will be continuing to use it. The formula was not thick or greasy, had a light scent and was very easy to apply!

Breakout Clearing Booster

I have been using the breakout clearing booster and the fizzing blackhead mask together. I honestly love the packaging of both, it's very nice looking! As far as the actual products, I thought the breakout clearing booster was okay. I've found that using this product as a spot treatment works best for me. I put it on a troubled spot at night before bed and the next morning the spot is less red and any inflammation is reduced some.

Good product

I was selected to receive a free sample of Dermalogica's Breakout Clearing Booster. Since I have occasional acne outbreaks, I was quite thrilled to incorporate this product into my nightly facial skincare regimen. After using this product for sometime, I'm glad to say that some of my acne cleared up, however, there were also days where it seemed like my acne was getting a little worse after using this clearing booster. I haven't used an acne clearing product before, so I'm not able to compare Dermalogica's product to any others on the market. I believe I would purchase this product in the future because it seems to be somewhat effective at reducing my acne.

Just OK

Breakout Clearing Booster - I was super excited when I saw that this product contains Niacinamide, which is in a few other skin care products that I use for stubborn acne. Unfortunately, this didn't clear up the breakout that I had....it did, however, make my face feel even more clean and gave it that matte look and feel.

Potent but Gentle

I really like the Breakout Clearing Booster. You only need a very small amount and it is very effective at reducing blemishes. There is a slight odor, and the bottle isn't intuitive at first, but those are the only negative aspects. The bottle of product will last a long time, which makes it a great value as well. I recommend this in everyone's arsenal to have on hand for blemishes.

This product works alright compared to what I normally use. It would get the job done however I wouldn't change unless it was in a pinch

Adequate, Cleansing Product--Needs Time to Tell

A fizzing, light, and soothing product that didn't irritate my skin. But I didn't see much in the way of changes in my skin's health, either. I think I'd use it longer.

What is the difference between this product (Breakout Clearing Booster) and the Breakout Clearing Emergency spot fix?

Nofar

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Breakout Clearing Booster is a spot treatment that treats a breakout and prevents PIH (an acne scar). It is also very hydrating, so it won't dry your skin out. Emergency Spot Fix contains Benzoyl Peroxide to target breakouts. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Hi, I have been using the spot treatment for a few weeks, and I feel like it's not really working on my pimples or the little bumps I have. I use it throughout the day and then at night before my moisturizer, should I apply the spot treatment BEFORE or AFTER the moisturizer? I really want this to work because I put it on pimples and on little bumps on my face.

Viv

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica! It doesn't show which product you are referring to however all spot treatments should be applied after moisturizer so they are not spread off of the spot they were applied to. Thank you, The Dermalogica Team

Crystal

I have been using the breakout clearing booster under my skin smoothing moisturiser am and pm as prescribed by the Dermalogica lady. I have noticed the skin pealing around my chin and mouth. Is this normal from this product (breakout clearing booster) or should that not be happening? Advice would be appreciated.

Florence

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please apply Breakout Clearing Booster to breakouts only. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can you use the Clear Start products while also using at-home, red and blue light therapy treatment?

Annie A

Hello, Please check with the manufacturer of the light therapy machines. Thanks

Bernadette

I've been using clear start fizz mask 3 times this week and clear start breakout clearing treatment every night. I notice that my skin is starting to peel. Is this normal?

Fil

Hello, Thank you for your feedback. Please try using the mask only once a week. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

Can a 14 year old use this?

Kath

Hello, Thank you for your for interest in Dermalogica. Yes, this was made with teen skin in mind. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Bernadette

I am 40 and my current regime is .... Pre-cleanse Dermal clay cleanse Daily exfoliator Break out control (am) Oil free matte moisturiser Overnight clearing gel / oil control lotion (pm). I still have continual spots around my chin and jawline would the Clear Start clearing booster be something to try other than the Breakout Control which does not seem to be working on this area of my face?

Melanie Green
