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.

I got this for free from Influenster. I was very excited to test this out since I have quite a bit of acne but when I used it I was very disappointed. It seemed to have made my face redder and irritated it. Instead of getting rid of my blemishes it made them worse.

Love it!

I've used this product for a little bit now and I can see a difference in my skin! I absolutely love it! The only thing I don't like about it is that the bottle is awkward to hold and push the gel out. I received this product complementary for testing purposes from Influenster.

So easy to use!

As someone with breakout prone skin, I love having simple yet effective products in my routine. I've been using the Clear Start Booster mixed in with my moisturizer both AM and PM and have noticed a reduction in my breakouts. My only gripe about this product is that it does make my skin slightly red and irritated because of the essential oils. If you don't have sensitive skin, I definitely recommend this product!

This product goes hand in hand with the fizz mask. These two products work great together. Stop breakouts before they happen with this duo. Lightweight product leaves you feeling refreshed.

I received this product for free through the Influenster app. I looooove the packaging and I looooove the product 😍 the booster literally saved me so many times before school and photoshoots 🙏🏼 I'm so thankful I received but I'm not a big fan of the smell though. It doesn't smell bad but I don't like the pine scent :) either way I'm coming back for more :p

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

Annie A

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

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?

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?

Hi, I'm 34 years old and suffer from adult acne. I've suffered from this all my adult life but it is getting worse. It's affecting my cheeks, chin, jawline and neck. I've recently purchased the Medibac clearing skin kit and would like to add to it but I don't know whether to try the Medibac Breakout Control or the Clear Start Breakout Clearing Booster. I see the Clear Start range is aimed at teens and so wondered if this would be suitable given my age? Could you recommend a suitable day and night regime? Many thanks, Emma

Emma

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I personally like Breakout Clearing Booster. Breakout Clearing Booster is a spot treatment that treats a breakout and prevents Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation. It is also very hydrating, so it won't dry your skin out. Kind Regards, Bernadette
