I bought this in place of the Alba Botanica clearing gel I usually use. I have small, superficial whiteheads under my jaw from and use SA to clear them up. Within a few days of switching to the Dermalogica clearing gel, I had significantly more whiteheads, and they were slightly unflamed, which is uncommon for me. When I went back to the Alba clearing gel, everything calmed down to normal. I can't recommend this product.

This was not effective at all. Definitely skip this product if you had moderate to severe acne. This also did nothing to help get rid of clogged pores.

I use the overnight clearing gel instead of the Medibac oil free moisturiser when my skin needs a bit of extra time of month help. Its not a miracle cure, but my skin is better than its ever been since I switched to the Medibac range so I keep repurchasing it. I don't get any sort of irritation or sensitivity from this. Sometimes I take it for granted as I've been using the Medibac range for so long now I forget what my skin used to be like, but when I think about it, using this product means I have a couple of spots for maybe a quarter of the month, whereas before I found it, I was never spot free and they used to be a lot bigger and more painful.

More of what everyone is saying- I had been using the clear products that are less expensive and doing a good job. But this has a lighter scent (my hubby thought I was putting perfume on with the other one-HA!!!). And it does a better job- by a ton! I am using it with the other Medibac products so it is compounding the effect. I am a bit older than most on the list and was scared that this would be too strong or too weak. No just right. Bit more expensive than other product but what price is a great face in the morning-*Priceless* and a little goes a long way- still on my sample. I suggest getting the sample kit and see how it goes.

I rediscovered this in my vanity stash, at a time my skin had escalated to both pustular and cystic acne everywhere on my face. I began applying the gel to the spot heads only, spot-treating all the affected areas as needed. Inflammation reduced the next day, and gone by day 3/4. It works, worth the price.

Background information: I have a combination skin with oily t-zone. I do not have an acne problem, but do get the occasional pimple now and then. When I do get pimples, it is the big inflamed ones that seems to be under the skin. I try as long as I can to leave it alone and let it dry out. These are difficult to handle because you cannot really squeeze them and it takes a long time for it to dry out. If I try to squeeze the pimple, nothing comes out and it only makes the problem worse. Worst case scenarios I have to use a needle to pop a hole in the pimple, so that the pimple goo can come out and does not inflame the area further (this is the most gentle way of popping a pimple, do not use your fingers). I use cotton swabs to squeeze the goo out.

I use this product during the night, which is excellent before and after the pimple has been popped. When I feel that a pimple might be coming, I apply it on that area. I keep applying until the pimple is not too tender, and if the pimple does not seem to disappear I will try and pop it. After popping there will always be some residue left. So I apply this product in order to prevent a new breakout on the same area. With this routine, I usually get rid off the pimple quite fast without scarring. I do get some discolouration for a while, but that might be due to my skin type. I have Asian skin, where discolouration and melanin production sit deeper in the skin, and therefore takes longer time to fade.

I find this product to be soothing, disinfecting and drying out the pimple. I am quite satisfied and will most likely repurchase.

I have been using this for the past 2 months and my skin looks better. My pores are far less congested, my skin is calmer clearer and my acne scars are fading. I use this every night, with one night break. You need to be generous with this, about a large quarter size for my whole face. I have sensitive skin and this does not cause any irritations. It does not clear or help cystic blemishes thou , but for regular blemishes and congested skin this is great!

First off Iíd like to share a bit of background on my skin-
Iíve got oily t-zone and Iím EXTREMELY acne prone. Iíve been suffering from acne for years. Iíve tried just about every product (low to high end brands) Iíve found decent results with proactiv, clarisonic, and philosophy. BUT nothing that changed my skin drastically. Iíve been dealing with acne since puberty but it got increasingly so much worse about the last two years. My skin was covered in cyst acne (hurt so badly) I couldnít go a day without breaking out. It was so weird. I did everything that was recommended but my skin just wasnít doing what I wished for. When the acne scaring got really bad, to the point my whole forehead was utterly covered in scaring I really felt it was time to move on and try new products and see what other brands can do for not only fixing the acne scaring but to stop me from breaking out as much as possible. I was researching and came across this and Neutrogenaís Acne Control 3-in-1 Treatment. I was leaning towards the cheap Neutrogena since this was 40 bucks more. The reason I ended up choosing this was because I tried Neutrogenaís acne cleanser and toner in the past and let me just say not a good idea. I have Dermalogicaís clearing mattifier which Ive been using for 3 years and I love it. So I figured take the splurge and keep my fingers crossed. I've tried many overnight treatments in my past and most were severely drying, so I really had no clue as to what this would do to my skin. Down below is the day to day update that ive had saved on my computer for weeks. Figured since it has been around 2 wks since Iíve starting using itís a good time to upload my results so far.
FIRST DAY: woke up with improvements, Iíd like to use the word drastic but hey it wasnít completely gone (but I didnít expect that since my skin was doing so bad). I could definitely see scaring fading and acne healing. Plus it was the cleanest my skin has felt in years. Even being a user of the clarisonic.
SECOND DAY: I was in awe!!!! Now I must use the word DRASTIC! My skin did a complete 360 and its amazing. Iím so happy I purchased and went with this expensive product. My acne scars are way down and the actually acne itself is down tremendously. Also I have not got a pimple sinceÖvery unlikely for my skin!!! Iím use to breaking out every day
THIRD DAY: Iím lost with wordsÖ.is this really me im looking at?? WOW! Scars are basically all gone now. Acnes basically all gone. Face feels cleaner than ever!
ÖSame improvements continued each day. :) At the end of wk 1 I actually got my monthly breakout. This time however it was less and it took about 2-3 nights to clear up and get back on my track to clear skin. Once I did get those under control my skin continued to improve and progressed really fast. Iím just so happy about my skin and this fab product. I must recommend this to everybody. I canít imagine my life without this. Clear skin is truly sexy skin and I canít believe I finally have found this little miracle. It does more than it says! I best stop rambling sorry guys Iím just so in love! HG! 4ever&always.
