Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash Review

Dermalogica have a good reputation with both men and women for producing high-end quality products, many aimed at anti-aging. They attract consistently positive reviews and are a favoured brand amongst skin professionals. For these reasons, we had high expectations for clearer skin after a single use of their clearing foaming wash. 

We reviewed this Dermalogica face wash as we do all our products; on quality, performance and price.   


This Clear Breakout Face by Dermalogica is what you’d expect, quality-wise. It has a gel consistency which lathers up into a rich foam. It has a clean and refreshing aroma with a hint of tea tree oil. 


This face wash was tested on a single subject with areas of breakouts and acne on their skin. Our tester wasn’t expecting a miracle after only a single use of face wash on their skin. However, he was pleasantly surprised as to how cleansed the skin felt after one use. 

You’ll notice how the gel turns into a rich foam, even with a small amount, meaning this has the potential to last before having to replenish your supply. 

By day 2, inflammation had reduced and skin was starting to appear clearer. 

Towards the end of the week, redness and inflammation had dramatically reduced and only a few pimples remained on the breakout area. Pores were less visible, particularly around the nose and other areas of skin looked flawless. Some users may find they experience dryness with this product but a good oil free moisturiser will address this without issue. 


Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash for acne and breakouts retails for around $19.00 to $22.00, which some may consider slightly higher in price for a facial wash. Saying that, you really do get what you pay and, if you’re serious about shifting acne and breakouts, it’ll be worth every cent. 

Overall experience:

The Dermalogica Clear Breakout Foaming Wash is a powerful product, ideal for those who experience acne or are looking for a quick fix for breakouts. 

This product gets to work after just one wash, resulting in a noticeable improvement in days. 

This product wouldn’t be suitable for those who suffer dry or sensitive skin as the ingredients may be harsh and can cause irritation. 

If you are someone who suffers with breakouts but who also has sensitive or dry skin, or if you’re looking for something easier on the wallet, see our list of Best Acne Face Washes or our list of Best Face Washes for Men.
