breakout clearing emergency spot fix

Dab this powerful concentrated gel directly onto individual breakouts: formula wipes out pimple-causing bacteria deep within the pore to clear your breakout fast.

benefits

  • Benzoyl Peroxide kills breakout-causing bacteria deep within pores.
  • Formulated with 7 gentle botanicals including Camellia Sinensis, Lavender and Tea Tree, known to calm skin irritation and redness.

how to use

Before moisturizing, apply as a spot treatment directly to the breakout, and allow to dry. Apply every 6-8 hours as needed until breakout clears.

part of clear start product system

Nine fresh products just for teens and young adults.

clear start

Clear Start is a system of nine serious products that utilize medicated ingredients and soothing botanicals to deliver real results.

Clear Start™ was created by the skin health experts at Dermalogica, the brand that’s been changing the face of skin care for more than 25 years. It became clear that no one was addressing the needs of teens – not only with products that get results, but also with the education they need – when Dermalogica Founder Jane Wurwand’s own daughters entered their teenage years.

how it works

Skin care product choices available to teens may be ample, but they aren’t good choices. Products for teens often contain harsh and inexpensive ingredients to strip the skin of oil, and are filled with artificial fragrances and colors – all things that can irritate and strip oil from skin, causing more problems than you started with!

Made spots redder and worse

By 

from U.K.

I had the clear start kit for two months, I still had regular breakouts but it definitely helped clear away most of the excess oil on my forehead. I then was presented with this I used it before moisturising in the morning, after toning at night, and other random times in the day. After I started using it I got the biggest, nastiest spot ever, it was right above my left eyebrow, it was so full of puss that it was as hard as a rock, also the pain that spot put me through, dear god it was like having a massive red bruise on your forehead! I put more of the emergency spot fix on it and it just made it worse. I would defiantly recommend the other clear start products, as I do feel they have helped; but I do still have regular breakouts...
I wouldn't recommend this product.

Exceeds Expectations

By

This product is amazing. If I use it right when I notice a breakout forming, it clears by the next day. On larger blemishes, it dulls the inflammation and redness. I am astonished with the results and have repurchased twice.

Works most of the time.

By

I use this product as soon as I see or feel a pimple form and usually within 3 days it is gone. Sometimes it doesn't work though, but it does help minimize it when it doesn't completely make it go away. I definitely will always have this in my arsenal of acne products though because it does help, one way or another!

My fav!

this is my go to product when i start to get a new blemish. the day time and night time treatment creams do the bulk of the work to keep my skin clear but a few pimples will slip in here and there. i think of this product as the pimple police! i keep it with me at all times and dab this on as soon as i feel a pimple coming on. the earlier you catch the new nuisance the better this stuff works! i have prevented many a zit with this little tube of wonders.

Works great

By

This works great, but it does stain things pretty easily. It helps reduce deep acne pretty quickly but can cause some redness or excessive drying of the skin. I also sometimes get red rashes (probably because I go in the sun with it on).

My go-to

By

Verified Buyer

I recently started using this blemish spot treatment. I use it when needed, whether its on new small pimples that are forming or existing ones. I use it multiple times a day in order to clear the breakout fast. This product is not irritating to my skin, and does not cause any dryness. I would definitely recommend!

  • Q:

    Does this product contain Benzoyl Peroxide 5%?: I bought it and checked the ingredients but there's no mention of this particular ingredient even though it shows up in some searches of the ingredients. Was the formulation with Benzoyl Peroxide discontinued?

    • A:

      Emergency Spot Fix has 5% Benzoyl Peroxide in it. It will be listed on the packaging of the actual product. This product should be applied directly to your breakout. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
