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.

  • Gentle yet effective
    5 out of 5
    I have had skin issues from my early teens to my mid 30’s, and most products aimed at clearing up breakouts are cakey and/or drying. This product is awesome, however, and doesn’t over-dry my skin so it ends up overcompensating by producing more oil! Just pop it on the problem areas overnight for a few days, and use breakout control during the day, and all sorted.
  • 5*
    5 out of 5
    This powerful little potion is a dream at maintaining a clear complexion and when the inevitable happens, reducing, calming and speeding up the process of clearing the spots! Pricey but goes far and I now couldn't live without
  • Fantastic treatment
    5 out of 5
    I use this most nights after cleansing. I put it underneath a moisturiser. I find it fantastic on my sensitive skin and have seen great results when I use it regularly!
  • Helped me out!
    5 out of 5
    This really helped me out recently. Cleared up a really bad breakout. Wish I could figure out how to stop the breakouts coming in the first place!
  • Perfect night time friend
    5 out of 5
    I was blessed with easy carefree skin as a teen but my adult years have not been as kind. The medibac range has been a life saver. With this gel I always go to bed (and wake up) feeling refreshed and knowing my skin is getting a treatment whilst I sleep. Definitely your perfect night time friend
  • A miracle worker
    5 out of 5
    Perfect to treat the odd pimple - works quickly to clear the blemish - without drying or irritating even sensitive skin. Ah-may-zing. Thanks again, Dermalogica!
  • Must Have
    5 out of 5
    This works so well to clear up spots fast, and prevent the ones forming under the skin from ever breaking out. You only need a small amount of product so the bottle lasts ages.
  • Helps with redness
    5 out of 5
    Only been using this product for a week but already seems to be helping with redness and reduction in spots!
  • Great Product!
    5 out of 5
    I have just started using this product, it works!! I use it on my breakouts and in the morning they look alot better.
  • It works!
    5 out of 5
    I struggled with adult acne and decided to give this a go. It truely works. Ive had next to no breakout since starting this. I love this medibac product range
  • Refreshing change from usual 'spot treatments'
    4 out of 5
    I'm so used to using gels that sting when I apply them, and dry my skin out far too much leaving me with flaky dry sensitive skin. This product is not like that! It's gentle enough to use every night but active enough to really help clear your skin. Obviously it's not a miracle worker, acne isn't going to disappear in just a day or two, but mine is definitely clearing faster than it would usually.
  • Only thing that's worked
    5 out of 5
    The only product that's worked against clearing my big under the skin pimples that take weeks to go away!
  • Awesome
    5 out of 5
    I too was lucky as a youth to not have many skin issues but after having my children I now regularly battle with adult acne. I've only just started using this product but the results are immediately noticeable. In conjunction with daily use of the oil lotion my skin feels soft again and best of all is blemish free! It's always hard to try new lotions but this range is amazing and only wish I'd found it sooner. A must have in my bathroom and daily routine!
  • Highly effective for adult acne
    5 out of 5
    I was lucky in my youth, that I never had to manage teenage acne; however it has hit me now - after having children, and as I age. Every month, I have to deal with at least one large annoying, and highly visible spot. However, since finding Dermalogica's medibac range, I can start to use this as soon as I notice the first signs of acne, and it knocks it off right away.
    This product is light, and refreshing to apply. And it really does the trick!
  • Love it
    5 out of 5
    Used this years ago and liked it. Thought I'd give it another go as I get those nasty under the skin and hurt like hell spots on my chin!!! All you need is a tiny amount directly onto the spot. Spot disappeared in a few days. It is pricey but is worth it and it will honestly last me months.
  • Wonderful solution to my aging acne problem
    5 out of 5
    This is such a light product, and works wonders to prevent or at least minimise, the acne that appears cyclically. I never had to deal with acne in my youth, so when this hit me in my forties I struggled to manage it, especially as most products don't work well for aging skin. This stuff is magic!
  • YAY it works
    4 out of 5
    This works wonders with my skin. I am so amazed that my skin is looking better every morning after putting this on over night.. yay!!
  • A must-have
    5 out of 5
    This WORKS. Doesn't irritate my skin, just works overnight. If you think you're getting a pimple, pop some of this on and it's almost gone entirely in the morning. I've tried a LOT of products, but this is the real deal. Don't hesitate to get some!
  • Can't believe how amazing this is
    5 out of 5
    I was skeptical at first to try anything from the MediBac range in case my skin dried out BUT this gel changed my life. I use it before special occasions to clear up any spots around my chin and forehead. It literally works overnight ford me. So worth it. Amazing!
  • Perfect!!!!
    5 out of 5
    I love this! I found though that it didn't clear my breakouts immediately overnight but over 2-3 nights continuous use I found a dramatic improvement in my breakouts and in the healing of them. Only thing I find hard is that I can't put my night moisturiser on...other than that it is DEFINITELY a must have!!!
  • Love it!
    5 out of 5
    I am a huge fan of the Overnight Clearning Gel. You only need to use the smallest amount, so a bottle lasts ages. Really helps to reduce any breakouts, clearing skin quickly. Gentle for everyday use, I highly recommend this product if you have regular (or even the odd) breakout.
  • Can't live without it!
    5 out of 5
    This is my must-have product. It breaks down the lumps and bumps I can feel forming under the skin around my chin area, preventing their enevitable transformation into the dreaded breakout. I really notice the days I don't use it. Best of all it works while I sleep!
  • Super Fast
    4 out of 5
    I had a horrible large, sore, red pimple on my face, i used this once before I went to sleep and in the morning it had been reduced dramatically!!! Would recommend if you have that special occasion coming up and a pimple that strikes at the worst time!!

Can I apply Overnight Clearing Gel all over my face or just to affected areas?

Written by vbx on 7/02/14
The Overnight Clearing gel is fantastic for killing bacteria, unplugging breakouts and blackheads. Because it is designed for breakouts and congestion we recommend you use this product only on the affected areas.

We hope this helps but let us know if you have any other questions.

I have very sensitive skin so I'm hesitant to try new products because I've experience harsh reactions in the past - but I'd really like to combat the adult acne/clogged pores that I seem to be living with these days! Is Dermalogica's Overnight Clearing Gel safe for sensitive skin?

Written by Olive on 24/02/15
Hi Olive,

Overnight Clearing Gel is a topical treatment for acne that contains Salicylic Acid which does have an antibacterial, exfoliating effect on the skin. If you are sensitive we recommend you visit one of our skin therapists and have a face map consultation done before using the product. That way she can take a close look at your skin and advise if the product will be right for you. This will prevent any confusion which could potentially lead to a skin reaction. The face map skin consultation is free of charge and usually takes around 15 minutes.
Please refer to our store locator page on our website for a skin centre near you.

Do I still apply moisturizer when using this product overnight?

Written by Lyn on 19/03/15
Hi Lyn,

Thank you for your enquiry.
Overnight Clearing Gel is a hydrating night time treatment. It contains Hyaluronic Acid which provides increased hydration and improved elasticity without applying a moisturiser after the product.

Hope that helps
