Clear Start is a system of nine serious products that utilize medicated ingredients and soothing botanicals to deliver real results.
Clear Start™ was created by the skin health experts at Dermalogica, the brand that’s been changing the face of skin care for more than 25 years. It became clear that no one was addressing the needs of teens – not only with products that get results, but also with the education they need – when Dermalogica Founder Jane Wurwand’s own daughters entered their teenage years.
how it works
Skin care product choices available to teens may be ample, but they aren’t good choices. Products for teens often contain harsh and inexpensive ingredients to strip the skin of oil, and are filled with artificial fragrances and colors – all things that can irritate and strip oil from skin, causing more problems than you started with!
This product is amazing. It is so hydrating and dries in quickly. It gives an amazing natural glow
Love the feel on my skin
I love how this product feels on my skin after cleansing, it makes my skin feels very soft.
Unfortunately this did not work for me
It's a good product but it said it hydrates the skin and my skin felt super dry and tight. I needed to add the intense moisture balance along with this product
Best moisturizer out there
I got this moisturizer because all the other ones I had used before just weren't right - either too thick or too harsh etc. this one is AMAZING. Your skin soaks it up so well and now my forehead acne is all gone!
I will buy again
This lotion is not heavy, and soaks in quickly but moisturizes effectively.
This product was suggested for me by a worker at dermalogica, my skin is dry yet I have an oily and congested T-zone. I used the product after my shower at night and the next day, all the redness/dryness had disappeared, my friends commented on my skin too! Overall amazing product!!! :)
This is amazing for dry skin. It doens't feel thick or heavy on the skin. This product moisturizes and soothes my skin.
My teenage daughter uses this and loves it. It is lightweight and feels perfect on the dryer areas of her combination skin.
I was told it is a very soothing lotion...
I cannot say how this product works but my granddaughter...I bought this product for...told me it took redness from her face just after using it for 1 week...she is very happy and was asking me to buy this for her Birthday...it makes me happy it did help her...as I was hoping...
Great for every day use.
Hi, I have very oily and acne prone skin and I was just wondering which moisturiser out of all the Dermalogica ones do you recommend to be the best in keeping oil at bay throughout the day/rehydrating my skin from inside so it doesn't overproduce oil? Thank you!
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes this is a great option because it is hydrating but light weight enough for oily skin.
What is the difference between the clear start skin soothing hydration lotion and the active moist? I am not sure which one to buy.
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Active Moist is a light weight moisturizer that is very hydrating without being greasy. It has silk amino acids, cucumber and ivy. Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion is more light weight and soothing.
Hi, I don't know how much exactly to put on my face and i think it may cause the product to be less affective... I have oily/combination skin, how much do you recommend?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please use the size of a pea all over the face.
Since the product is not labeled as oil free will it cause breakouts in acne prone skin?
I currently have no breakouts. And use regular cleanser. But this product has several oils. Have gotten a new pimple sinxe using it. Just double checking.
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Purging is normal. This product contains botanical oils to soothe inflamed skin. The oils have antimicrobial and soothing properties. They will not clog the pores.
Hello, I was wondering if this moisturizer would still be ok to use for combination skin? Such as a really oily t-zone with normal cheeks? Thank you
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion is excellent for oily, combination, dehydrated, or normal skin.

When using the Hydrating Lotion when should you use Toner and moisturizer if you are using it throughout the day and night?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please cleanse, tone, and moisturizer (in that order), every morning and night.
The Dermalogica Team
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, you can use the toner morning and night before applying moisturizer and throughout the day to refresh.
Can I Use This Following The Overnight Treatmeant?: Can This Be Used After The Overnight Treatmeant?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes. Please apply Overnight Treatment to breakouts only. Then, apply Skin Soothing Hydrating Lotion all over.
