Disappointed

I have been dealing with acne since I was a young teenager. I have gone through the phases of it being really terrible, and then clearing up. I have very oily, acne prone skin. I used the clear start kit for several years as a teen and into my early twenties and had amazing results from it. However, I grew out of that as my skin became too used to it. I have tried all kinds of products and I heard of the medibac kit. Since I had such good luck with dermalogica before, I thought this adult acne kit would be just as amazing. That is absolutely not the case. I used this face wash, the oil control lotion and the over night clearing gel for 5-6 weeks. Within the first couple of days my face broke out worse than I have ever experienced. I was using the kit every morning and every night, religiously. And every day when I woke up, I had more acne. And not just small pimples, but huge cystic acne that would not go away, all over my chin and cheeks. I stopped the kit for about a week because it was drying out my skin too much and I just used a basic cleanser and kit. My face really started clearing up. So I thought I would slowly add the medibac kit back into my routine. After the FIRST time of using this wash again, just this face wash, my face broke out in brand new cystic acne. I used it one time daily for a couple more days, and every day had more acne. So this face wash was obviously the cause of my break outs. I would definitely never suggest this wash to anyone. I really wanted to love this wash and was so excited to try it. Now I'm just patiently waiting for the damage it has done to be repaired.

I recently switched to Dermalogica products to help combat my adult acne and scaring...in just a week of using this cleanser I can already see a difference! I can't wait to see what changes it makes with long term use!

I have always struggled with acne. Now I'm 31 and I'm still having issues. I have tried every topical treatment and the only thing that has helped completely is acutate. Skip ahead a few years and my cystic acne has returned. While the medibac line doesn't completely get rid of my acne, it is the most helpful product I have used. I feel like it is helping my skin become more healthy and I'm hoping that with continued use, I will continue to see great results.

Fantastic product

It's great I have combination skin and it does not dry out my face but manages my acne prone skin so well. I have never had better results with any other face wash.

Not that great

I bought this product thinking it would help with my time of the month breakouts. It really didn't do anything for me. Now the special cleansing gel did wonders for those breakouts clearing my skin within a day and a half every time.

Love this face wash

I have been using this product in the mornings on my face and back for over 3 years now. I will suds it up all over, leave it on for a few minutes, and then use a wet washcloth with a tiny dab more to help exfoliate my skin. It is definitely a staple to my routine- I don't feel totally clean for the day without it!

Terrible product

After spending a lot of money on this product my spots appeared to be getting worse. I was however told that this was a "purging" period so I stuck it out. 3 months later and my acne is worse than ever.

My new go to face wash!

I love this face wash! It's light enough but makes my face feel super clean. I like there isn't a strong smell as well. I don't feel like it's harsh on my face like some acne face washes have been in the past!

Aggressive breakouts after a while of using

I have suffered with acne for a while and was hoping this wash along with a few other products in this line would help. I love Dermalogica products however i would be careful with this wash. Its very harsh and immediately my skin flared up with very nasty breakouts - after a few months of using i had hoped it may calm down but it seems this wash irritates more than anything. Im sure it works on some people but if you have sensitive acne skin- i would be careful using this product.

Would it be good to use if I have oily skin?: I don't really know much about dermalogica, but I'm a teenager and I have slightly oily skin,and I have acne.

Hello, Clearing Skin Wash is for a face full of acne. Dermal Clay Cleanser is for oily skin. Kind Regards, Bernadette
