The Dermalogica AGE Bright Clearing Serum and Spot Fader Are Adult Acne-Fighting Heroes

Dermalogica AGE Bright Clearing Serum and Spot Fader

2 of the best skincare products for adult acne are from Dermalogica’s Active Clearing range: The AGE Bright Clearing Serum, the AGE Bright Spot Fader.


After the age of 25, our hormones change (especially in women), so may start to develop adult acne.  Chronic stress (also more common in women) can also be a trigger for adult acne. 


When we’re older, post-acne pigmentation can be worse than it was in our teenage years as adult skin heals slower, so we’re more prone to the pigmentation marks left behind from a breakout.

My Skin Type: I have oily, acne-prone skin.  My skin is also dehydrated, but I don’t have any dry patches.

AGE Bright Clearing Serum

Tilbury Spotlight

This active two-in-one serum clears and helps prevent breakouts while reducing visible skin aging. Salicylic Acid reduces breakouts to clear skin. This highly-concentrated serum exfoliates to help prevent breakouts and accelerates cell turnover to reduce signs of skin aging. AGE Bright™ Complex works with the skin’s natural microbiome for clearer, brighter skin. Phytoactives from Resurrection Plant, known for its ability to survive extreme dehydration, hydrate and smooth skin. Niacinamide works together with White Shiitake Mushroom to promote brighter, more even skin tone.

The AGE Bright Clearing Serum* has worked wonders for my skin, it’s brighter, clearer and less textured than ever before.  I definitely have less breakouts and my post-acne marks are fading.  I use half a dropper of this twice daily after double cleansing (also Dermalogica) and before moisturising.  I love that it is light enough for me to use in my morning routine and makeup layers perfectly on top.

AGE Bright Spot Fader

This two-in-one spot treatment reduces the appearance of active breakouts and post-breakout marks. Salicylic Acid works to clear breakouts, while Niacinamide and Hexylresorcinol work synergistically to fade post-breakout marks, improving uneven skin tone. AGE Bright™ Complex reduces visible skin aging and helps prevent over-drying.

The AGE Bright Spot Fader* stops breakouts in their tracks before they have the chance to fully develop.  I’m prone to really deep under-the-skin monsters that appear like clockwork every month, but this super effective cream has been amazing for reducing the inflammation without drying out my skin.


The formula is creamy but not heavy, sinking into the skin really quickly leaving no residue behind.  I apply a small amount of the cream (right after the serum) on to my finger and press lightly on top of the unwanted friend.  Within 2-3 days, it’s as if it was never there!

    The spot fader sounds amazing! I usually just use witch hazel gel but I’m yet to find my “miracle” product

      It’s so good, it really does speed up the healing process! Skincare is such a tricky thing isn’t it? I’m always keen to try new things to see what works best for me! x
