This zapped my zit in two days but as your sin ages, mine, at least, was more sensitive to the active ingredient. My advice is start slow with application frequency.

Not for sensitive skin

Only when you read Dermologica's reply to another reviewer who experienced problems is it flagged up that this contains benzoyl peroxide (an industrial chemical). I normally only use the Ultracalm series which I love. I had a very bad reaction to this product and I think it should say clearly on the packaging that Breakout Control is a better option for the odd spot. This messed up my skin for over a week.

Made my spots worse, so red and burnt my face

OMG I had flawless skin for over 40 years and recently I have a few breakouts and bought this spot fixer. My spots turned out bigger and redder and got worse each day. It burnt me and my husband was horrified as he has never seen my face so bad in over 20 years of our marriage. I have stopped using this yesterday and applied Rosehip oil and hydrating serums to help with the burnt and dryness after using this spot treatment.

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?

whysl

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. -The Dermalogica Team
