Although Dermalogica was established in 1986, their story began three years earlier when the founder, Jane Wurwand, decided to put up the International Dermal Institute (IDI). Back then, it seemed like everyone just wanted pretty skin, but Jane made it her mission to teach people how to get healthy skin. The IDI was an instant hit, and following its success, Jane decided to create a line of products to complement her healthy skin philosophy. Today, Dermalogica is the No. 1 choice of skincare professionals worldwide—and with their no-frills approach to creating spectacular products, we’re sure they won’t be giving up the top spot anytime soon.

I have oily skin to begin with and sometimes putting a moisturizer makes me oil up really faster. This is a very unsightly thing for me. I like using this Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer SPF 15 from Dermatologica because it keeps my skin moisturized without making my skin grease up.

Really mattifying!

I used this Dermatologica Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer SPF 15 as a primer before I put my BB cream and I like how it instantly takes away the shine on my face. It has a non-greasy formula that applies on the skin smoothly. It dries to a matte finish right after application. I like how this product kept my oil at bay all day. A little goes a long way too.

Not for sensitive skin

I really wanted to like this product (because I love the Dermalogica Clear Start line) but it just wasn't a good match for me. My skin felt irritated by the stinging sensation whenever I applied this product. Also, I don't see a major difference between this product and other non-mattifying moisturisers I've tried. It's safe to say I won't purchase again.

When I first used this moisturizer, there was a 'hot' sensation that followed. I thought it was normal and thought it was quite calming. It did make my face matte, but it broke me out in return and just gave me rashes on different parts of my face. The 'hot' sensation I was feeling must have been my face telling me that this product wasn't good for me. But this would be probably be perfect for those with super oily skin because it really gives a matte finish and has SPF. The only thing I liked about this was how good it smelled - I couldn't stop putting sniffing it.
