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.

I used this product with the other products in this line. It has worked so well for me. It's hydrated my skin, while keeping it oil free.. I've been looking for a very long time for a product like this and I'm so glad I found this one.

So far really good

I've only used this once, i washed my face with the clearing wash from the same product line then used this, aftrr i put my makeup on top with no primer. I normally Get shiney on my chin and T-Zone... the whole day i looked so matt! I had hardly any oil come through and my makeup looked so matt throughout the whole day didnt even need any touch ups. Only downside is it does dry very quickly and also very runny. I actually dropped alot on the floor, so be careful when taking out the bottle its very runny.

I have been using this product for the last 2 years. Prior to this my forehead was constantly oily and prone to spots. Now after using this alongside the special cleansing gel, I am very happy with my skin.

Great for oily skin

Helps keep my oily forehead skin at bay even in the summer!

OMG so effective

This is the best product for oil control. The mattifier is nice but it has acid in it. This does the same thing but without that burn from the acid after using it a couple of times. Wonderful under makeup- the best product.

Oil Control without the Burn

5

I like this oil control lotion because it's gentle but still does the job. Some oil control lotions strip my skin and leave it red and sensitive. I use this every morning after washing with the clay cleanser, and it really works well to decrease the oiliness of my skin.

The Best Moisturiser I've Ever Used/Holy Grail Product

5

I've got combination skin so oily t-zone normal sometimes dehydrated cheeks. I find it extremely difficult to fine a moisturiser that works, either there too rich and they make me break out or too matte and they dry my skin out however with this moisturiser it works amazingly, I taught it might be too drying because it's meant for oily skins but I'm so happy it works for me, it just balances out my skin, before using this moisturiser my skin would be oily straight away after cleansing in the morning now it's just balance throughtout the day and I don't wake up with oily horrible skin in the morning, this is my favourite Dermalogica product.

Hi, I have combination skin that can get oily during summer and dry in winter. What would be the best moisturisers/products for me to use? Thanks!

Ash

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Try Oil Free Matte SPF 30 during the day and Active Moist at night. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi Is the clearing mattifier no longer available? I was after an oil control product to use under make up. I have the oil free matt spf which i use when not wearing makeup, but the combination of makeup and spf makes me get pimples Hence looking for a non-spf oil control product. Thanks

alie

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may like Active Moist. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I have whiteheads on my cheeks , Can i use this product for white head .??? as i use Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant once in a week , and Dermalogica Ultracalming Cleanser , Ultracalming Mist-toner for morning and night.

shikha gupta

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may prefer Active Moist or Calm Water Gel. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I had a few questions & concerns about the products results ( oil control lotion ) . This has been my regimen prior to sleep considering I have really oily / acne prone skin : - clearing skin wash - multi active toner - clearing mattifier - oil control lotion Although every time I apply the oil control lotion, it tends to leave behind a white / chalky looking residue behind . I feel like it just doesn't fully absorb . I'm an 18 year old male which I assume has nothing to do with it . Thanks I appreciate it .

Adrain

Hello Adrian, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Oil Free Matte SPF 30 during the day and Overnight Clearing Gel or Active Moist at night. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Can teens with acne use this?

Ben

Hello Ben, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. For best results, teens should use Clear Start. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I've only used this product once (included in the oil control kit purchased from ULTA). Is the consistency of the lotion supposed to be this liquidy and thin?

Keeta

Hello Keeta, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, this product is very light weight for extremely oily skin. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I suffer from moderate adult acne (some cystic), but my skin is consistently pretty dehydrated as well. My t-zone does get oily towards the end of the day. I need a moisturizer that sufficiently hydrates my dry skin without being too heavy/rich for my acne-prone skin. I am not sure if I should try a moisturizer from the Medibac line (oil control lotion/oil-free matte), as I would like the added acne-focused treatment; but am worried that they won't be hydrating enough. On the other hand, I am not sure if another moisturizer (active moist/skin smoothing cream/intensive moisture balance/etc.) would be light enough for daytime use under makeup, or could increase the likelihood of breakouts. Can you help me pick a moisturizer? I currently use Medibac Overnight Clearing Gel at night and previously used AGE Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery as my moisturizer. Thank you so very much!!

Gracie

Hi Gracie, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Calm Water Gel may be a great option for you. It is light weight, calming and hydrating. It won't clog pores. If you like Overnight Clearing Gel for the evening, you may like Calm Water Gel for the day time. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Does this specific mouisterizer have spf or salicylic acid in it? Either one would be great and I heard about a mouisterizer on here from Nikki's Joy on YouTube that has sacilyic acid so I'm wondering if this is the right one, thanks!

Annie

Hi Annie, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, Oil Control Lotion has Salicylic Acid. It's amazing for oily skin, blackheads or acne. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is there a real difference between this and the Oil Free Matte SPF 30 lotion? They both seem to do the same thing, but one has SPF.

ashley485

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Oil Free Matte SPF 30 will matte out the skin all day. Oil Control Lotion is for night time use. It contains Salicylic Acid, so it actually exfoliates the skin while it is on. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I just wanted to double check that this product is non-acnegenic and oil free. Sounds silly, but I have been using a sample and noticed some skin congestion. However, it's not uncommon to go through a transition period. Currently using special cleansing gel and a gentle toner by Mario Badescu. Hoping to add this to my skin regimen to decrease likelihood of breakouts/congestion. Thank you!

Amber

Hi Amber, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product is ideal for oily or acne skin. However, it is normal to have a purging period. You can use this moisturizer and night and use Oil Free Matte SPF 30 during the day. A spot treatment or masque can help too. Kind Regards, Bernadette
