The overnight treatment not only gets rid of acne but it also soothes the skin. It is a thick substance but still feels airy on the skin. It's wonderful!

I purchased this product for my 12 year old son for mild acne. It worked very well. we saw results within one week. He had no skin irritation or excessive dryness while using this product. We stopped using the product once his skin cleared. We will continue to use this as needed when he has acne breakouts.

I love this product

5

I use this product religiously every night! it helps keep my oily skin in check without being drying. My breakouts used to produce large pimples that would stay for a few weeks. Clear start keeps them from getting bigger in size and clears them up a lot faster than other spot treatments I have used in the past. I love my skin and I love this product

Feels light and fresh

I have been using this lotion for over two years now and love it. It seems to help keep breakouts under control and never feels too heavy on my skin. I use this lotion both day and night as the daytime lotion was too strong for my skin. The nighttime one is is light and refreshing though!

do I use it every night or only when I see myself break out ?

alematz28

Hello, Please use this at night as indicated from the product name. Thanks

Bernadette

Hi, I have had this product a while now but have never properly used it. Am I meant to use it after toner and moisturiser and do I still apply spot cream on after?

India

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use this at night after cleanser and toner. You can use it on breakouts only and follow with Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Would this help my body acne too such as back?

Kasper

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. For the body, try Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hello, could someone please tell me what the difference is between this product and the overnight clearing gel please? After reading the descriptions and looking at the ingredient list they seem to extremely similar. Thank you.

L124

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Breakout Control is an acid-free spot treatment that is non-drying. However, it is very effective. Apply a thin, clear layer to breakouts. Use it under moisturizer, morning and night. Overnight Clearing Gel is a hydrating gel with Salicylic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Will this product cause breakouts to become worse before they get better?

Sophia

Hello Sophia, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, it is normal to purge in the beginning. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I normally use medibac overnight clearing gel, what is the difference between this and that?

Lena

Hello Lena, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Breakout Control is an acid-free spot treatment that is non-drying. However, it is very effective. Apply a thin, clear layer to breakouts. Use it under moisturizer, morning and night. Overnight Clearing Gel is a hydrating gel and acne treatment. It contains Salicylic Acid and is your night time step. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I have relatively clear skin. Like everyone, I get the occasional pimple. Is this product gentle enough to be used on small pimples or what looks like a small bump (oil buildup/pimple before it is ready to be popped-which I will not do)? If there is a general area where it looks like a small pimple may develop, can I use this product, or would the toner treatment be better? Thank you so much for the help!!

Alex

Hello Alex, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Breakout Control is an acid-free spot treatment that is non-drying. However, it is very effective. Apply a thin, clear layer to breakouts, blackheads, clogs, etc. Use it under moisturizer, morning and night. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is this product gluten free?

Jpetk

Hello, Thank you for your question and interest in Dermalogica. After completing Gluten Analysis testing on all of our wheat containing products the conclusion is that only one is suggested to be avoided by a gluten intolerant or Celiac. This is Extra Firming Booster.

Should this be used every night; even when the skin appears to be clear?

LittlestMegan

Hello, Thank you for your question. Please use this on active breakouts only. Follow with Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion all over, every night. Kind Regards, The Dermalogica Team

Can I use this with a moisturizer? And if, before or after applying this?

Cilladilladuu

i would say yes, and before the moisturizer. i have naturally oily skin so i dont need to.

shandana

Always use a moisturizer! Even if your skin is oily, you need to be hydrating it, especially if you're using an acne clearing product like this one. The active ingredients can irritate and dry out your skin if you're not giving it some love too! If you're not prone to dry skin, the clearstart hydrating lotion would be great after this, or opt for a thicker cream, like the ones I've recommended.

Cydney

I use mine with my moisturiser and find it works even better!

Alexandraayesha

The Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment helps hydrate the skin while treating the breakouts. If you feel you need more hydration you may apply Active Moist moisturizer over the top of this product.
