Clearer skin starts now: bring the four contributing factors of breakouts under control.
The MediBac Clearing® system works to treat, clear and prevent adult breakouts while addressing the needs of adult skin. Most products and treatments for breakouts are designed for teenage skin, making them too harsh and irritating for adult breakout sufferers. MediBac Clearing® controls breakouts 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 breakouts. Each product, with its unique breakout 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 breakouts.
I love this product. This is great to use year round for oily skin. It's oil free with sunscreen. Perfect for daily use.
i got this for free from my cosmetology school and i thought id give it a try. I LOVE IT. i use it every morning and it goes on great. its not heavy. the only thing i dont like is that the container makes it hard to get product out.
An overpriced suncream
I didn't find that this product provided any real benefit so far as oil control or mattifying was concerned. The solution very much smells mildly of suncream and I think that is in essence what this is. It is slightly thicker than what you would expect of a mattifying product and if you aren't very careful, you'll end up with a white cast. I purchased this alongside a calming water gel for underneath and found it all to be very underwhelming. If you want SPF protection, perhaps buy a moistuirser that comes in a pot and buy SPF drops to mix in - will be more cost effective and have more desired results on the face.
Matte SPF without the dryness.
I like to use this product on it's own and on top of my moisturizer. I love that this product actually is lightweight, easy to blend, doesn't leave a white cast, and doesn't dry your skin out. The only complaint that I have about this product is the price.
The perfect everyday moisturizer with SPF
Never would I dare leave the house without final application of Oil Free Matte. I use it after toning with Multi Active Toner, followed by Biolumin-C serum.
Dermalogica Lovin' Dude
Why have I not been using this for ages! I love the Pure Light 50 SPF but at the end of the day it feels and often stays on/in my skin like sunscreen. This, however, is incredible. I love the lightweight feeling of both SPF and oily/acne prone skin moisturising. 100% would recommend.
I would buy this product again
This moisturizer is great! Non greasy, has a light sunscreen scent... Feels good on the skin...after a few hours it does leave a slight film. Love that it is spf 30... if I had anything I would want to change about it I would love if it had the same feel as the oil free clearing moisturizer. But I will be buying it again because of the spf. It's great!
Best spf I've tried
Because I have oily skin I always avoided sunscreen because they all felt too heavy on my skin. I've been trying this SPF for about two weeks and I'm very pleased. It does go on a little heavy but it quickly absorbs into my skin without leaving a sticky residue. My makeup goes on well on top of it. So far I love it. I am waiting to see how it'll hold up when it gets warmer.
Irritates my skin
Irritates my skin horribly and ends up making me extremely oily since my skin gets irritated. Very uncomfortable.
Not my favourite Dermalogica product
I use quite a few products in the medibac range and love them because they help me control my blemish-prone skin. Unfortunately I have not got on with the oil free matte sunscreen. I found the forum lovely to put on and it was perfect under makeup, however after applying it my skin began to sting a little and after removing my makeup and the spf at the end of the day my skin was inflamed and lots of small blemishes had popped up. I tried the product for a while to see whether my skin would get used to it and found it felt better when I applied it on top of the ultracalm serum but negativity I still kept getting red, blemished skin so I had to stop using it.
Can this be used with a primer? would I put this on before or after primer? Which primer do you recommend with this spf?
Looking for spf and also smooth skin complexion - I have combination oily skin. Many thanks!
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Use this as your SPF/moisturizer and follow with a primer like Hydrablur Primer.
I am using retinol on my face once a day at night. Will this product be strong enough to use while using retinol?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes SPF 30 is sufficient.
Hi.....i have been using Medibac Clearing Oil Control Lotion on my T-Zone for many years now but see that its not available. Does Oil Free Matte spf30 replace Medibac clearing oil control lotion?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes Oil Free Matte SPF 30 would be the most comparable item to Oil Control Lotion.
Is this safe to use in pregnancy?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes but always check with your doctor.
I have been using the clearing mattifier and note that it is discontinued. Is this the right product to replace the clearing mattifier? If not, what is a good replacement for my T-zone. Thank you.
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, Oil Free Matte SPF 30 would be the closest item.
According to the ingredient list, this contains grapefruit peel oil. Does this not qualify as an oil, given that it is an "oil free" sunscreen?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica! The amount and type of oil used will not affect the performance of this moisturizer an oil free product.
The Dermalogica Team
Can I use this if I have a normal / combination skin?
or can you please recommend me a day moisturiser with SPF included?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use this during the day if you are oily or combination. Solar Defense Booster SPF 50 is also an option.
Hi. I now use the oil control lotion and am concerned with harmful sun exposure during the day. Would the Oil Free Matte SPF be used in conjunction with the Oil Control Lotion or is this meant to be used on its own as a moisturizer during the day?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use Oil Free Matte SPF 30 during the day and Overnight Clearing Gel at night.
I was just wondering if this offers protection against both uvA and B? The box mentions uvA high protection but also says it's broad spectrum, so I'm hoping it does offer protection against both.
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. All of our SPF products are broad spectrum and offer protection against UVA and UVB rays.
