Clear Start is a system of eight 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!
13 year old DaughterMy daughter has had troublesome skin from an earlier age (12). As she was young I was apprehensive about using such a 'high end' product. However this stuff is incredibly reasonable in price and has literally made a world of improvement in her skin. Her skin looks MUCH BETTER, she loves the stuff and therefore so do I. Very happy!10/09/16

Pre teen boyAbsolutely brilliant for my almost 12 yr old who has started getting spots around his nose. Only need to use a tiny bit of this cleanser and it clears the spots. Very economical and effective, love the bottle as it doesn't pour out and cause wastage. Thank you!29/05/16
Teenage GirlsAfter trying several other products my daughter used a friends Clear Start for a few days while away. When she came home I instantly noticed the improvement with her skin. I immediately purchased this product for my 2 daughters 15 & 13 who have been loving it!!25/04/16
Superstar cleanserI've been using this product for about two years now. I have oily, breakout prone (with lots of blackheads) skin and find that this product suits me well. Along side acne medication, this product has definitely kept my skin under control. Would highly recommend!19/03/16
Love It!Absolutely love this cleanser! it foams up into the softest lather and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. I have definitely noticed a dramatic improvement of my skin through using this product, it has cleared up my skin and my pores are looking noticeably smaller. Would definitely recommend this product at such a great price!22/02/16

So goodGreat product! Cleans skin and keeps break outs at bay without over drying28/09/15
I keep coming back for more!My 14 year old daughter has been using the breakout clearing foaming wash for a few months now (along with some other breakout products). She loves it - every time it runs out she comes to me "Mum you have to get me some more dermalogica". I love the fact that it is so easy to order online, with free shipping and turns up on your doorstep a few days later.16/09/15
Does what it says it doesBought a travel size of this as I was having some break outs around my chin...at 40 this is really annoying. Loved the foaming wash, the smell is great and it helped clear my skin up without drying it out. Great to have on hand for difficult skin times.6/09/15
Highly recommendThis is a great product to have in the shower when there are teenagers in the house. I have two boys & they were both told to 'use that clean start stuff in the shower every night on your face', which they do. I think the packaging is appealing to them too as it doesn't look clinical.13/08/15
Love DermalogicaI bought the breakout starter kit for my daughter to try because she was having endless trouble with acne. She found it really good so I bought the full size foaming face wash and the overnight clearing treatment (she still has the moisturizer and toner) and continues to use this system with good results so far. It is a gradual process but things are improving - thanks dermalogica. we love you!27/06/15
Great for teenagersBought this for my16 year old teenage son who was having problems with angry looking pimples. After only a couple of days I noticed quite a difference in his skin & the pimples drying up. I sent some to my 18 year old son living in a University Hostel, as he too has issues with pimples & after a week said his skin looked a lot clearer, plus a lot of his fellow hostel students also use the product and were telling him how good it was!3/06/15
Clear start rangeThis skin care range has been wonderful for my 14 year old daughter's skin. Like most teenagers she does have the occasional break out and the Clear Start range of products has been fantastic for helping to keep her skin looking healthy and blemish free.18/10/14
I am concerned about putting chemicals on my skin as I do not want these toxins to enter my blood stream, I am also cautious about using products that strip the skin of its natural oils and in doing so speed up the ageing process. What type of ingredients are in your products? I am looking for a long-term solution that won't damage my skin.
Thank you very much!
