Everything You Need To Know About Dermalogica’s Latest Clear Start Range

KISS Promotion: Let us introduce you to your new skincare faves.

I’m gonna just get it out there, skincare can be one difficult thing to wrap your head around. Our own skin is constantly changing, and so are all the available products on the market. But what makes things easier, especially with all the changes your skin goes through as a teen, is having one go-to brand that really looks after your skin.

Cue, Dermalogica Clear Start. Specialising in teen and young adult breakouts, blackheads and shine to help you achieve your healthiest skin, they really know their stuff.

And the most exciting part? They’ve just added two brand new products to their Clear Start range! Here’s everything you need to know about the latest products, from their hard-working ingredients to exactly how to use them.

Clear Start© Micro-Pore Mist

If you haven’t tried a facial mist yet, you’re pretty much missing out… Clear Start© Micro-Pore Mist not only feels amazing on the skin, but it tackles a popular skincare concern too: shrinking large pores.

In a world where skin can be as unpredictable as schedules, Clear Start want to offer their customers a skincare product that they can rely on, which is exactly where the Micro-Pore Mist comes in. It minimises pores, brightens the skin and controls oil.

Something else that’s pretty great? The tube is encased in 50% clean recycled plastic, yay!

What’s in it? 

As a toner that visibly shrinks pore size, it contains a mix of skin-brightening Niacinamide (which works to support your skin barrier, making it much more healthy overall) and oil-reducing ingredients to visibly minimise your pores, no matter if the skin is clear, breaking out or bordering on the shiny side.

How do I use it? 

It couldn’t be more simple, literally spritz on after cleansing morning and night or throughout the day as needed.

Where can I buy it? 

You can pick up yours online at dermalogica.ie and authorised stockists for €25.

Clear Start© Cooling Aqua Jelly

Something that can be hard to wrap your head around is that even oily skin needs hydration, and this is exactly where Clear Start Cooling Aqua Jelly comes in. The brand new oil-controlling and skin-refining jelly moisturiser is specifically made for breakout-prone skin, and it ticks every box.

What’s important to remember is that oily skin still needs hydration especially when using breakout-fighting ingredients that can sometimes be over-drying. Enter Cooling Aqua Jelly, a refreshing, lightweight jelly moisturiser for oily skin that provides shine-free hydration. Music to our ears!

And as an added benefit, the tube is made up of 38% recycled plastic in an effort to reduce packaging footprint. Love this.

What’s in it? 

You’ve probably heard all about retinol before, and while you really don’t need to start using retinol until your mid-20s, this ultra-light formula contains Bioflavonoid Complex which is basically a retinol’s little sister. It helps to reduce the amount of oil your skin produces while working to refine the skin’s texture.

It also contains hyaluronic acid (any skincare lover’s best friend) to lock moisture into the skin and provide a natural-looking glow, without the shine.

Ready for more? Clear Start Cooling Aqua Jelly is packed with Blue Tansy Flower Oil and Blueberry Extract to help calm and soothe skin while providing antioxidant benefits, and Blue Algae Extract to hydrate and nourish your skin.

How do I use it? 

As the last step in your skincare routine, apply a pea-sized amount over the entire face and neck. You can use it both day and night, just make sure to follow up with an SPF each and every morning too.

Where can I buy it?

You can pick up yours online at dermalogica.ie and authorised stockists for €26.
