breakout clearing booster

A fast-acting acne treatment that works within 15 minutes. Formulated with Salicylic Acid to help kill breakout-causing bacteria for rapid skin clearing. Patented TT Technology and Phytoplankton Extract work with skin’s natural microbiome and help prevent over-drying. Niacinamide reinforces skin’s defensive barrier and helps to even skin tone, while seaweed-derived Chrondrus Crispus Extract soothes irritated skin.
Although there is no standard for establishing a gluten-free designation for topical skin care products, independent laboratory testing confirms that this formula surpasses the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) ingestible standards and can therefore be considered gluten-free.

Breakouts? What breakouts?

I loved this product and used it alongside my Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask. I had never used Dermalogica products before but I had heard good things from friends. I was excited to try this for myself. After using the mask, I used the breakout booster a couple times a week. After a week my breakouts had reduced drastically and my redness vanished. I only had a couple of spots but I was amazed by the outcome. I would 100% purchase this in future. I was lucky enough to receive this complimentary of Influenster, just in time for when my skin was at its worst.

Wonder product!

I have been using this product for a couple of weeks now and I am in love! I apply this product to my breakouts morning and night under my moisturiser and have seen such a reduction in the redness and size of my blemishes! The product is nice and moisturising unlike some other breakout gels I have used in the past and you get a lot of product in the bottle for the price. I recommend using this after the fizz mask as they work together perfectly! I was kindly gifted this product for testing purposes.

Must have product

I was sent this product for testing purposes and am shocked at how well it works. I typically have a lot of small breakouts on my cheeks and have very oily skin. I used this in the morning and at night and noticed a difference in only two days, my skin is completely glowing! The product has a strong scent but once it dries (not even a minute) you can't smell it). It also doesn't dry tacky which is great, other spot treatments I've tried feel sticky and gross. My ONLY complaint is the bottle it comes in. It is a hard bottle so you have to either forcefully shake it to get product out or wait for it to very slowly drip out. But I will still buy more of this because it really works!

Magic!

I love this product I've been using it all over my skin day and night under my moisturiser and it's clearerd my skin up loads and making my skin appear more even! It's great for a quick touch up before an event and to use on a daily basis just to clear up any imperfections! I would defiantly purchase this, I was sent this to review from Influenster but I honestly love it! And will be treating a few people at Christmas to this!

I received this product for complimentary testing and I am pleased with the results! I get breakouts during the summer and this has been a god send! Calmer spots down within a day and they were gone within 3-4 days!

I used the Fizz mask and later applied this products all over due to lots of breakouts. I really enjoyed this product because it doesn't feel heavy, sticky or uncomfortable. It worked really well!

I may repurchase this product

For this product your hold down from the bottom to release product, (it was confusing at first), and apply this to your skin before moisturer to help with breakouts! I will say I do feel like my breakouts have been reduced slightly and I think when used regularly it may make a difference. Combined with the fizz blackhead clearing product my skin feel soft. The scent of this product is slightly off putting but overall it works! I would recommend this to someone to try out if they are struggling with acne however I do think there is cheaper alternatives on the market to clear your breakouts! I received these products complimentary to test and review!

For the first time my skin has no spots!

5

I've used this for about a week whenever I break out, and my skin is the clearest that it's ever been! I usually have spots most of the time, but now, whenever I breakout I just apply this, and my spots are gone the next day! This is the best breakout clearer I've ever tried, and I definitely recommend this to everyone. I have really sensitive and dry skin, and with this, my skin is so hydrated, I have no irritation or redness at all! Definitely will repurchase when I run out (which will be soon, because it's so amazing!) (I've received this product for free for testing purposes)

So good!

So, firstly I must say that application form is so cool!! I've never had product with applicator like that before, but now I'm obsessed with it! This cream is totally my night cream, because for daily use I need hydration, but it's still perfect! My skin is better, more clear and soft after use!! And I love the smell of this cream, it's specifically, but, for me, it's great! I have a little pro tip, when I had a big blemish or something like that, but need to look flawless I apply additional dose of cream only for it and left for all night, next day morning it's smaller and skin looks better! I really like this product and absolutely recommend it! I got it for free to testing, but it worth every penny!!
