Lazy/Beautiful: Dermalogica Emergency Spot Fix

Over the years I've honed a decent skin care regime: Sweating lots, sticking to a couple key potions and serums, eating my vegetables and, on occasion, going without makeup.

And – for the times when I toss those things out the window, veer slightly off track or follow every step perfectly and still see red spots – I've got this:

Dermalogica Clear Start Emergency Spot Fix: the perfect zit cream. Liquid gold, I tell you! I've never seen a pimple shrink as quickly as when I dab a little of this on it. Only a tiny smear and poof – it disappears. Or it pulls everything up to the surface all at once. Gruesome for a day, gone for tomorrow? I'll take it.

Morning or night, I put it on after washing my face and before putting on moisturizer. (This one, to be exact.) It doesn't dry out my skin and leave a crusty, flaky halo around the pimple. You know what I'm talking about? Apparently you're supposed to reapply it every six to eight hours. I've never tried that because, you know, life. There are more pressing things than crushing a zit into oblivion. I can only imagine how pimple-less my skin would be.

While it's a bit more expensive than drugstore potions, it's worth the extra couple bucks because it's fast and effective. It doesn't take much to make a big difference, which is why it'll have a special spot in my skin care arsenal as long as it continues to exist.


  1. and where do I buy this miracle cream? I NEED IT!

  2. I bought mine from Amazon. You could also try a local Dermalogica spa!


Would love to hear what you think!

(Remember, keep it kind and constructive.)
