Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Emergency Spot Fix:

When you first apply this product, it smells great and very floral. But obviously the benzoyl peroxide is a very strong ingredient with an even stronger smell. Besides that, it did not dry out my skin or cause a rash. In face, I see results the next morning after applying on my acne. Maybe the botanicals have caused some people with sensative skin to have a reaction, but for me it works perfectly.

Btw I am in my late 20's with hormonal/PCOS acne.

    Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Emergency Spot Fix:

    The product really does work to reduce acne. However it causes a rash whenever I use it. It may work well for people with acne without sensitive skin.

        I put a very small amount on a zit on my chin before bed and when I woke up in the morning I had a rash all over my chin. I don't know if this is because it really dried out my skin or what, but my face was very irritated and red! I do not recommend this product.

        Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Emergency Spot Fix:

        I don't get zits often, but when I do, it's a horror show. Saturday afternoon I felt that horrible, familiar ache of an oncoming zit. The spot just at the end of my inner eyebrow throbbed as the day went on, and I knew it was going to be a monster. I was unable to treat it with anything until that night before I went to bed: I used my Clinique salicylic acid gel. The next morning, it was red and even more painful, so I knew I had to try something else. The pimple had festered and gotten so big I could see its outline when I looked out of the corner of my eye: it was like a boulder just hanging off of my forehead. I ran to Ulta and picked this product up and used it that night. Lo and behold, the next day, the redness had decreased. It took about a day for a whitehead to appear, and I know I'm not supposed to, but I squeezed that sucker. It took about another day or two to smooth out. My skin did get flaky around that area, but that was a small price to pay. For as powerful and effective as the benzoyl peroxide was, the soothing botanicals in the product made this one of the most gentle acne medications I have ever used. I am so impressed with it that I am going to get emergency tubes for my sisters, just in case they ever need them.

          Comments about Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Emergency Spot Fix:

          This product is amazing ! I suffer from extreme aches outbreaks (usually requiring a visit to the derm for injections of anti inflammatory). I got recommended this product and figured I'd try it out! My skin type is moderate oily very sensitive skin with predominately cystic acne.

          This literally works miracles in 24 hrs. I followed the regime stating application every 6-8 hours and my skin showed 85-90% improvement especially on cystic acne spots.

          Also it did not dry the spots out as most products do! So I don't have patches of peeling zits either !

              I bought this for my 13 yr. old daughter with very angry acne on her forehead. We tried everything that usually works, then tried it all again. On a trip to Ulta for makeup we got to talking with the nice lady who does facials. She suggested this product. 2 weeks later, forehead is clear. We are thrilled!

                      Hello Mk:

                      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The skin may be affected by the sun resulting in pigmentation if you do not use SPF with this product. Please make sure that you are using SPF during the day. We also recommend that you use Daily Microfoliant to aid in smoothing the skin and evening out the skin tone.

                      Best Regards,

                      The DermalogicaTeam
