Clearer skin starts now: bring the four contributing factors of breakouts under control.
The MediBac Clearing® system works to treat, clear and prevent adult breakouts while addressing the needs of adult skin. Most products and treatments for breakouts are designed for teenage skin, making them too harsh and irritating for adult breakout sufferers. MediBac Clearing® controls breakouts 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 breakouts. Each product, with its unique breakout 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 breakouts.
I had ran out of my Oil Control Lotion. This is the NEW Formula. I find it is very hard to apply. Greasy and uncomfortable when applying. Dos Not go on smoothly. Feels uncomfortable. May as well be sun lotion
does exactly what it says
this product does exactly what it says, and nowhere does it claim to be a moisturizer, it's only an spf so don't expect it to replace your moisturizer. this works great on my oily acne prone skin and keeps matte throughout the day, unlike other spf's i've tried before. it also doesn't break me out which is great.

It does what it says!
This isn't my favourite product, only because it seems to be quite a thick moisturiser, that you probably don't need too much of, as it can be applied only where needed... however, I do suffer from areas of oily skin, and this mattified those areas in an instant
Sorry but no...
This product doesn't moisturise my skin at all. As well even tho I don't use it around my eyes, it makes them very sensitive I cannot stop crying and have red eyes. Sometimes I have a reaction, sometimes not. To apply enough product you have to use 2-3 drops so I used half of it very quickly! Didn't use another half cause it simply irritates. And for this price it's not worth it, sorry Dermalogica.
What We Have Been Just Asking For Not Executed
This is exactly what I was looking for moisturizer + sunscreen in one. However, the bottle hasn't evolved. As sunscreen is more thicky than an oil lotion, the process of getting this out offset the convenience of combining two kinds of products... Takes like five minutes to actually get it out. I would buy this again but the bottle needs a lot of the improvement
Makes my skin oily
I am new to Demalogica. My skin is so very oily. So I got the oily skin kit and I loved it. It has the oil free control lotion and it was great. Really cut down the oil to almost nothing but I heard that the Matte was even better so I purchased that. Now I am back to full blown oily. Quite disappointed that I have wasted my money but I will continue to purchase the other products.
Grease and oil
My skin is oily in Tzone specially, have used many sun blocks, but this one never made my skin oily. love it.
only thing dermologica products are quite expensive
Gotta have it!
I love this product. This is great to use year round for oily skin. It's oil free with sunscreen. Perfect for daily use.
i got this for free from my cosmetology school and i thought id give it a try. I LOVE IT. i use it every morning and it goes on great. its not heavy. the only thing i dont like is that the container makes it hard to get product out.
An overpriced suncream
I didn't find that this product provided any real benefit so far as oil control or mattifying was concerned. The solution very much smells mildly of suncream and I think that is in essence what this is. It is slightly thicker than what you would expect of a mattifying product and if you aren't very careful, you'll end up with a white cast. I purchased this alongside a calming water gel for underneath and found it all to be very underwhelming. If you want SPF protection, perhaps buy a moistuirser that comes in a pot and buy SPF drops to mix in - will be more cost effective and have more desired results on the face.
This product is not available on the website, what would be a good alternative?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Prisma Protect SPF 30 is another light weight option.
I read that this product can leave a white cast if you use too much. Would you recommend this product for people with darker skin?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This contains chemical SPF so it does not leave a white cast. Physical SPF is what can look chalky on the skin.
Hi can you use with skin smoothing Moisturiser? Looking for a nice Moisturiser and oil control and spf
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use the SPF in the morning and the moisturizer at night. You can also layer them if more moisture is needed during the day.
Can this be used with a primer? would I put this on before or after primer? Which primer do you recommend with this spf?
Looking for spf and also smooth skin complexion - I have combination oily skin. Many thanks!
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Use this as your SPF/moisturizer and follow with a primer like Hydrablur Primer.
I am using retinol on my face once a day at night. Will this product be strong enough to use while using retinol?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes SPF 30 is sufficient.
Hi.....i have been using Medibac Clearing Oil Control Lotion on my T-Zone for many years now but see that its not available. Does Oil Free Matte spf30 replace Medibac clearing oil control lotion?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes Oil Free Matte SPF 30 would be the most comparable item to Oil Control Lotion.
Is this safe to use in pregnancy?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes but always check with your doctor.
I have been using the clearing mattifier and note that it is discontinued. Is this the right product to replace the clearing mattifier? If not, what is a good replacement for my T-zone. Thank you.
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes, Oil Free Matte SPF 30 would be the closest item.
According to the ingredient list, this contains grapefruit peel oil. Does this not qualify as an oil, given that it is an "oil free" sunscreen?
Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica! The amount and type of oil used will not affect the performance of this moisturizer an oil free product.

Can I use this if I have a normal / combination skin?
or can you please recommend me a day moisturiser with SPF included?
