Dermalogica breakout clearing booster review

Hey lovelies. Most of you probably know by now that I’ve battled with acne most of my life. I’m always finding ways to improve my skin, and then one day Dermalogica decided to let me be a part of their skinfluencer program! You can read more about that and how they changed my skin here.

One of the products they have sent me is their Clear start Breakout clearing booster. After using it for many months now it’s been a staple part of my routine and key in clearing horrible spots! I wanted to dedicate a post to it because I honestly know it works.

The Packaging – Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout clearing booster

So with this product the packaging is SO important!!! Now, when I first got this I was so dumb and didn’t realise how you got the product out. The tube is solid plastic so you cant squeeze it out, so I kept shaking it and barely getting any out I was honestly so confused… Then finally after a few weeks realised that the bottom of the tube is squishy and you simply push against that to get it out! So if you were having trouble with it.. you weren’t the only one.

The Verdict – Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Booster

I want to get straight to the point here – this product WORKS. One of the main ingredients is Salicylic acid which is known for its benefits at fighting spots which I believe is the main reason it works. I also found out from a Dermalogica expert that this targets only the bad bacteria in your skin whereas most other spot treatments target both bad and good bacteria so do not work as well.

With the Breakout clearing booster, you can either put a little directly onto spots or a thin layer all over your skin. For me, this works really well on those painful under the skin spots that haven’t come out yet, 2 nights of putting this on and it’s 80% gone – Amazing! It also doesn’t dry out my skin which is another bonus for me as I tend to have dry skin. I’m not sure how different this would be on those with oily skin but I imagine it would still work as well directly on spots.

This stuff is fab and although it was gifted to me, I would definitely purchase it again.

What hero products do you use for breakouts?
