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.

learn more

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!

This product burnt my skin

By 

from Australia

Comments about breakout clearing emergency spot fix:

I put r the smallest amount if this on my skin and checked in the morning only to find blistering, red patches on the applied area. They burn and sting and go away only after a few days. I am not allergic to any of the ingridients and used a tiny amount. I would not recommend this prdoucy for anyone with sensitive skin as my skin looked burnt shortly after

Magic in a bottle

By 

from New Orleans

Comments about breakout clearing emergency spot fix:

This has been a life saver for picture day during highschool, first day at a new job, first date, beach debuts, honeymoon photos, every big event that acne has no business being at. If I saw a spot coming on I used it and for years it's been clearing my face back and chest. This stuff puts you in control. I wish I would have got my hands on this for middle school , back then I was a fool using proactive and Biore and all those big names with zero results and just feeling defeated. I don't always remember to remove my make up and some days after being on the beach the sun has you drained and you don't want to shower off all that spray sun screen, gross I know but it's life. I promise if you buy this product you won't be disappointed. You'll be another story like me.

Amazing product ! It really helps!!

By 

from sydney, Australia

Comments about breakout clearing emergency spot fix:

This product is amazing and is a miracle worker! I started using this product when I was 15 and all throughout ages 11-14 I had really bad skin, I was embarrassed to go out, I constantly went to the doctors thinking he could help and give me something but he didn't, I started covering my face with so much make up (which didn't help) and after hundreds of products and after spending thousands on different products. My aunty worked at a beauty shop and recommended me to Dermalogica while providing me with lots of products to help however I have to admit some did not work but heaps really did help me clear my skin and the emergency spot fix really saved my life and truly helped me clear my skin and now I'm 17 and I have the clearest skin I ever had and It feels really good to have a clear have ! I recommend this to all teenagers going through puberty !

Made spots redder and worse

By

Comments about breakout clearing emergency spot fix:

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

Comments about breakout clearing emergency spot fix:

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.

Comments about breakout clearing emergency spot fix:

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!

      Most are made with peroxide which, is really good for the face especially for breakouts and also salicylic acid (it doesn't harm your face and it only get rids of the breakouts!!) :)

  • 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.
