CLEAN START KIT by Dermalogica
“The Clean Start Start Kit contains:
WASH OFF “A foaming wash for face, back and chest”, this product is one of my favourites. It has a fresh zingy smell, and once you’ve washed it off, you feel refreshed and clean as opposed to sticky greasy or irritated which can happen with some other acne fighting washes.
ALL OVER CLEAR “Spritz on to stamp out breakouts.” This spray also helps tone and fight oily skin and, like the Wash Off, can be used anywhere on the body. It contains oil controlling sesame seed extract, licorice, burdock and argan extracts that help hydrate, calm and clear skin. Lemongrass revives and tones skin as well giving it a lovely citrus smell.
READY, SET, SCRUB Another favourite, this is a 2-in-1 “breakout-fighting, pore-refining duo” and I loved it as it’s a mask and a scrub combined. After 5-7 minutes on your face the clay mask soaks up any excess oil. Then, just before rinsing, rub the mask with your fingers to exfoliate your face and scrub away any dead cells with the little silica grains.
WELCOME MATTE SPF 15 is a “moisturizer with oil controllers to minimize shine” which you apply in the morning. To be honest, I’m not really a fan of moisturizers because they tend to make me break out, but this one doesn’t because it is an oil-free formula that doesn’t clog pores.
BEDTIME FOR BREAKOUTS It’s gel-like and claims to “clear skin while you sleep”. Lightweight and non-greasy, it has a non-chemical, refreshing scent. There’s cooling cucumber and soothing licorice and you only have to blend a little bit on your breakout to help minimise it by the next morning.
Finally, the “BRIGHTEN UP SPF 15”. Unfortunately, if you buy the start kit, you only get a little sachet of this, so there isn’t really enough to tell how good it is or not. It allows you to “moisturize and shimmer without shine”. It feels really light and would be good if you wanted a very subtle tinted moisturiser.
I think these Clean Start Kit mini sizes are a great way to test-drive the range. Best thing of all is that it made me notice a difference in my skin, and reduced my breakouts.”
