clearing skin wash

Foaming cleanser helps clear oils and bacteria on breakout-prone skin. Slough off impurities and dead skin cells with Salicylic Acid, a beta hydroxy acid that stimulates natural exfoliation to help clear clogged follicles and prevent future breakout activity. Naturally antiseptic extracts of Balm Mint, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree help eliminate breakout-causing bacteria and congestion as Menthol and Camphor help cool inflammation. Skin is left clean and prepped for optimal absorption of MediBac Clearing® treatment ingredients. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours.

benefits

  • Clears away excess oil without stripping skin.
  • Helps prevent future breakouts.
  • Soothing botanicals help calm irritation.

how to use

Perform the Dermalogica Double Cleanse that begins with PreCleanse. Work a pea-sized amount into a lather in wet hands. Apply to dampened face and throat, massaging in circular motions while concentrating on areas of congestion and oiliness. Avoid eye area. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Follow with Skin Purifying Wipes and prescribed MediBac Clearing regimen.

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.

    After trying this in the Medibac skin clearing kit I am absolutely hooked. It's such a deep cleanse without drying out your skin at all and has soothed and started to heal my persistent adult acne. Love it.

    5 out of 5
    I was so over being 26 and struggling with on going acne - when will it end? I decided to buy the medibac cleanser to try and I have not looked back since - a tiny amount goes a long way so I felt I could justify the price tag. Even in 2 weeks I can see my skin is less inflamed and less red! I love this product so much I have gone on to buy the whole medibac skin kit to see if this will be the end of my adult acne!

    I have struggled with bad acne for 10 years now and finally have found something that is helping my breakouts. Although my skin has not cleared up completely, since using this product my skin hasn't broken out as often and keeps it more under control and if I do breakout it isn't nearly as bad as it usually would be. Will be purchasing and recommending to others with acne

  • Saved Me
    5 out of 5
    Until 6 months ago I had very good, though sensitive, skin with not much in the way of acne, apart from the odd hormonal spot. THEN, I did the horror of all horrors and switched make-up products to Bare Minerals and had an allergic reaction to the bismuth oxychloride. It took months for me to realise the acne, rashes, flakiness, and overall unusually bad complexion was not due to stress or a hormonal imbalance, but was my make up. By then, a lot of damage and scarring had been done to my face. I tried numerous skincare lines, from cheap and cheerful, to completely homeopathic and organic. Though some of these products were lovely, nothing truly helped to get my skin back on track for more than a few days, or to what it was before, until I bought the Medibac kit to trial a few products.

    I have been using this cleanser for three weeks and there is such a noticeable improvement in my skin, it feels clean, and most importantly, it's preventing acne, it has helped to cleanse my pores and get rid of the nasties that have been underneath my skin for a while, and I'm finally feeling better about my skin and myself. This in combination with the clearing sebum mask, and the overnight clearing gel is incredible.

    I am so happy I took the leap, it's the best thing I could have ever done for my skin!

    Switched to this recently after using special cleansing gel for a long time ....my skin just kept on breaking out which is so frustrating in my 40s. Loving it so far, might have to look at the other products in the medibac range.

  • Breakout times
    5 out of 5
    Only use this product when I have major breakouts, mostly around the chin area.I feel like it gives me skin a deep clean that I wouldn't get with other cleansers. My skin is extremely sensitive so I keep it away from non breakout areas and use it in conjunction with my other cleansers

    I love this face wash - as someone who suffers from bad skin and breakouts in her mid/late 20's this has been a lifesaver! My skin is back to normal, and I've got a more even skin tone without the breakouts. Totally recommend this product to anyone who is suffering from adult skin troubles - effective without being harsh!

    This cleanser is absolutely amazing! I have been looking for something for my skin for a while now as I am prone to get adult acne. Since using this product my skin looks and feels so healthy. I really love it. I purchased a small trial pack to start off with but have since purchased the larger bottle as its so good. So glad I have found this product, cant recommend it enough.

  • Good product
    4 out of 5
    The cleanser I think does a good job at cleansing my skin, without drying it out. I use this probably 4 days a week at night with my clarisonic. Although my acne hasn't cleared up completely, I think this product helps a bit in reducing acne or at least it doesn't break me out.

    I bought the 50ml bottle just to try it out and in nearly 2 months I have used about 1/3 of the bottle, so this probably would last me quite a while!

    I use in conjunction with the other medibac range only when I have extreme breakouts periods. I believe it works well when it is applied to the problem area

    I have suffered with adult acne since my 30's and it had been a daily struggle to keep it under control until I tried this wash, it's fabulous, leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. Its keeps my pores clear and oil free and those embarrassing breakouts are a thing of the past.. My skin is perfectly balanced as the cleanser doesn't dry my skin out...will never use anything else again..

    Have been on some very intense medication and have had a breakout of adult acne-not great. This product is helping to keep it in control. Only thing I advise is don't over use as it may dry your skin out as I found out. Great smell and makes your skin feel fresh

    I do have adult acne (also on prescribed medication from a Doctor.) This helps me to fight the problem from the surface, definitely helps to reduce blockages and my skin tone is more even. My Doctor says the key to great skin is a great cleanser - I'll be sticking with this one!

  • Yup, I am happy with my purchase!
    5 out of 5
    As previous reviews - I don't have heavy acne. Just hormonal spots every now and then. But I like a clean feeling face (not like some cleansers which leave your skin feeling like you have just washed it with baby oil, so it still doesn't feel clean). This product really does feel like it is cleaning with the foaming action. Then the eucalyptus makes my skin feel really fresh. I am a bit naughty, as I realise I am supposed to use a precleanser. But I hate taking extra time, and seem to be rushing in the morning enough as it is - so this does a great job of make up removal and cleaning in one go. Easy to use, thorough and does what it says it will do.

    This is a great cleanser and a little goes a long way. While I do not have heavy acne, face mapping showed that my skin was heavily congested below the surface. Using this product helped my oily T-Zone become a complete matte zone. It's a God send!

hi there i was just wanting to know what products can be used during pregnancy for break outs ??

thanks

Written by amber on 27/12/13
Hi Amba,

Our MediBac range is what we suggest for breakouts. However please note, MediBac products do contain Salicylic Acid which is contraindicated in some women during pregnancy so we do suggest you check with your Doctor if it is safe for you to use. We feel the products are fine as the concentration of Salicylic Acid is not high enough to be an issue for many women however each person should get confirmation from her doctor.

We'd also recommend anyone wanting to try new products are best to visit one of their local Dermalogica Skin Centres for a Face Mapping Skin Analysis (free in most locations) with a Dermalogica qualified therapist. Your therapist will be able to take a close look at your skin and recommend the best products for you to use. You can find contact details for your closest Skin Centre here: http://www.dermalogica.co.nz/store-locator

Thanks!
