Dermalogica Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer SPF15 by Dermalogica


Beat the midday oil slick with Dermalogica Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer. This lightweight formula helps balance and control oil production throughout the day on seriously oily skin.


The powder-fresh matte finish stays locked in all day long, whilst SPF 15 keeps skin from becoming damaged by the sun.


So say goodbye to blotting papers, constant powdering, and makeup sliding off by noon. Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer is your one-step secret to sleek, smooth, shine-free skin. 


Key benefits

  • Broad-spectrum SPF 15 prevents sun damage
  • Controls oil production throughout the day
  • Extends the life of your makeup
  • Stays matte but not flat; won’t dry out skin or unbalance skin’s pH
  • PETA-accredited, cruelty-free


Key ingredients

Broad-spectrum SPF 15 protects skin from sun damage.
Liquorice, Clary Oil, and Eucalyptus calm and soothe irritated skin.
Willow Bark Extract, one of the best natural oil-clearing and acne-fighting ingredients, minimises irritation and inflammation whilst fighting breakouts.


How to use 

  • Cleanse skin and pat dry.
  • Apply any toners, treatments, or serums.
  • Apply the product in a thin layer over the face and neck area.


Who is Dermalogica Clear Start Oil Clearing Matte Moisturizer for?

This product is best suited to those with incredibly oily skin. This generally means it will be best suited to younger skins, as oil production starts to slow down with age. This product is a great choice for those with truly all-over oily skin.


Is this product for me if I have normal skin but an excessively oily T-zone?

No. This product is intended for those who have true all-over oil production. If you’re experiencing excess oil in the T-zone area but find the rest of the face feels normal or even dry, your skin is likely unbalanced or dehydrated. A matte moisturiser will only worsen the imbalance, so go for a lightweight option designed for normal/combo skin types instead.

Perfect as per title - 10-01-2019 by

Works well under makeup or on its own!

Good - 11-12-2018 by

Skin type: Dry/combination

Its a good lightweight everyday moisturiser, hasn't caused any breakouts. and affordable!

Good but not great - 06-12-2018 by

I've used Dermalogica's Clear Start range for years (started when it was called Clean Start) and have found the products to be okay but never outstanding. They're not bad, I have definitely repurchased a lot of them time and time again, and bought them for my sister, but they don't live up to what I believe Dermalogica is capable of.
I bought this hoping my skin would be matte all day, which I found was the case a couple of times, but other times it remained as it were prior to using this product.
It's moisturising, and doesn't give you that sunscreen-glow, however I'd like to see a higher SPF in the future.

Great - 29-11-2018 by

Was looking for a new, high-quality moisturizer. Usually do NOT spend money on skincare, but I like this moisturizer! My skin is looking smoother and clearer after less than a week of use. I'm sure I'll be back for more when it's out!

Wonderful, Cleared up my skin - 26-11-2018 by

Cleared Up my skin within a week of using it daily, makes skin soft and oil free!

Good day moisturiser, doesn't cause breakouts - 16-11-2018 by

I have mild acne and combination skin. I've been searching for a day moisturiser that has sunscreen but wouldn't make my skin look even more oily. I love using this moisturiser layered on top of another gel moisturiser because of its matte finish, contains sunscreen and how it hasn't caused my skin to break out. However, i wouldn't say that it has helped clear my breakouts.

my 13 year old loves this - 12-10-2018 by

Great on my daughter's skin.
She loves the matte finish as shiny is apparently out of style.

A great introduction to skincare and I am pleased it has sun protection included

Perfect for oily skin - 29-08-2018 by

Super hydrating formula that does cause excess oil production and keeps my face looking health and oil free all day long. One of my favourite products and something I will definitely recommend and repurchase.

Love the matte finish - 17-07-2018 by

This is a great product for my daughter, doesn't cause any breakouts (she has sensitive skin) and you don't end up with an oily looking face.

Unpleasant - 10-07-2018 by

I received a sample of this and applied it to my chin and cheeks. Immediately it started to burn very badly, so I removed it! I do have sensitive skin but I wouldn't expect such a reaction from something that claims to be a moisturiser. Also, the consistency is extremely runny, and it smells and looks like sunscreen.

Great for reducing blemishes - 09-07-2018 by

I used this Dermalogica Clear Start Matte Moisturiser, when the condition of my skin deteriorated, while I was pregnant and it was amazing. I saw results within a week of use. I would recommend this product for anyone suffering form breakouts as it is a miracle worker. The product has a slight cooling feel to it when applied to the face. I used this moisturiser daily and was incredibly happy with the results.

favourite moisituriser - 05-06-2018 by

i absolutely love this moisturiser, i received it in the clear start trial pack and this is the only product that ive since then repurchased. this is the best ever matte moisturiser, it minimizes my pores until theyre basically nonexistent! i love using this as my pre makeup moisturiser or just as my primer!

Pale white cast but definitely matte - 08-05-2018 by

I appreciate how the product is definitely matte but it doesn't feel that moisturising. Also, I had to be very careful when using this, as it does produce a white cast (the SPF15 in the product) which I really did not like.

Great product - 20-08-2017 by

I found this product greatly improved the oiliness of my skin, particularly the t-zone. It feels very light and does not have any strong smells. The whole bottle although small lasts for quite a while. Only downside is the SPF is quite low.

Love it - 25-07-2017 by

I received a sample of Matte Moisturizer oil clearing after ordering hair products. As you do, i gave it a try and loved it!! i have so much trouble finding the right products for my sensitive skin and this was amazing, i am buying some now. It has been a couple of days and my face still feels great even though i have washed it since then. Great stuff! Only problem is i wish they had a bigger bottle i could buy!

decent SPF moisturiser - 30-08-2014 by

I'm in love with the other products I've tried from the Clear Start range, and had high hopes for this moisturiser. Unfortunately a few personal preferences mean it's not the ideal daily moisturiser for me.

The product does help to mattify after application, however I can still benefit from blotting papers by late afternoon.

The product itself is a thin consistency lotion with SPF, meaning a little goes a long way. The product does smell strongly of sunscreen, which does bother me, and I much prefer gel moisturisers for every day use.

Whilst it is a good moisturiser, due to my own product preferences I won't repurchase this myself, but will try the Clear Start daytime treatment instead.

Clear Start is a great range - 30-06-2014 by

My teenage daughter has had a vast improvement in skin condition thus confidence as a result of the Clear Start product range.

Amazing Stuff - 16-06-2014 by

This product is the best face moisturiser I've ever used, and trust me I've tried the works from cheapies to high end. There are so many reasons why this product is a must have for me.

I'm 17 and I have combination skin which tends to get a little clogged and blemished. This really keeps my t-zone matte all day and makes my skin look beautiful and fresh.

Great value for money. I use a drop about half the size of my pinky nail and it goes such a long way. It's such a great product because it isn't a thick consistency, it is thin and spreads beautifully across the face and feels so refreshing. Also, given that it is so lightweight and has SPF it makes a great base for daytime makeup. It smells like sunscreen but this doesn't bother me personally. It's not noticeable one applied.

I seriously will never purchase another moisturiser as long as this god-send exists.
