Dermalogica Clean Start: My Thoughts.

I have never shied away from talking about my skin problems, however this time last year I would never have posted photos of myself online. After being inspired by the amazing Em from My Pale Skin Blog, I realised I shouldnt be ashamed of my spotty skin or blotchiness and just embrace it. I have reviewed lots of different skin care products in the last 8 months and my current routine of choice is the Dermalogica Clean Start range.


I actually received this from my auntie in New Zealand exactly 1 month ago now and started trying it out straight away. I arrived in New Zealand suffering a huge breakout so it was perfect timing to test this range. The products in the range are:

Clean Start Wash Off

Clean Start All Over clear

Clean Start Ready, Set, Scrub

Clean Start Welcome Matte Spf15

and Clean Start Bedtime for Breakouts

The first thing I noticed is that the range says Clean Start however all the products in the UK say Clear Start but the range is exactly the same.


You start by using the Wash off morning and night to cleanse the face with warm water and a flannel. I then used the All Over Clear morning and night as well with a cotton pad as not to get bacteria every wear. 3-5 times a week you should use the Ready, Set, Scrub to clear the face and refresh it. I will honestly say this is my favourite product in the range. Every time I used it, my face felt super clean and definitely fresher. Lastly use the Bedtime for Breakouts by applying a fine layer on an evening before bed or the Welcome Matte moisturiser on a morning before applying your makeup or just to add some moisture. I would say add moisturiser before bed as well as the kit can be quite drying and I found my skin felt a little tight. A dab of moisture fixed this quickly though.

I have seen a huge difference in my skin since starting this routine and can honestly say I’m scared to stray from it. I think when it comes to skin care going forward this will be my go to range and each product in the range is under £20 so a complete bargain. If you are looking to test it out for yourself, you can buy the starter kit with mini versions in to trial before you buy the larger versions.

I hope you’ve found this review useful and decide to buy these fab products for yourself.

Thanks for reading
