{Product Review} Emergency Spot Fix & PreCleanse Wipes

PreCleanse Wipes

Dermalogica have brought out their incredible precleanse in a biodegradable wipe. Perfect for when you are on the go, especially great to keep in your gym bag or to pack when travelling.

I have been using precleanse for years now, it is the only way my skin really feels clean. i wear a lot of product on my face everyday (sunscreen, primer, foundation, powder) and just using a face wash never makes my face feel clean, nor does it get rid of the build up of product on my skin from a long day. have I must admit, when I first tried the precleanse wipes I was very sceptical. I used them (in bed) after a night out and while the wipe was convenient enough and stopped me from falling asleep at the basin I missed the silky feeling of the actual oil and I couldn’t see how often I would really have the need for them. Fast forward a few weeks and I ended up packing them when I recently went down to visit my parents. Any mom who goes on ‘holiday’ alone with a toddler would know that you barely have time to shower let alone stick to your usual skin care routine. The precleanse wipes were my saviour. I could walk around holding Bella while cleansing my face. What a win. I ended up loving the wipes, and I found them especially great in removing my thick lashings of mascara. (Any thoughts on bringing out eye make up removal pads?!) Dermalogica claim that precleanse “melts away layers of excess sebum (oil), sunscreen, waterproof make-up, environmental pollutants and residual products that build up on skin throughout the day. Add water to transform this hydrophilic (water-loving) formula into a milky emulsion that easily rinses debris from the skin’s surface, allowing your prescribed Dermalogica Cleanser to penetrate even further for professional cleansing results.” and they honestly lived up to their claim, as I said earlier, my skin has never felt cleaner since adding precleanse to my routine.

Breakout Clearing Emergency Spot Fix

Breakout Clearing Emergency Spot Fix forms part of Dermalogica’s newly re-launched Clear Start Range. Clear Start has been created to treat younger, breakout prone skin and educate teens on the importance of looking after their skin.

I had been gifted Emergency Spot Fix from Dermalogica’s Clear Start range after attending their #teensupreme event (see event photos here: #teensupreme) and it couldn’t have been at a better time. My skin has really been acting up the last few weeks, and it completely flared up from the stress of my recent ‘holiday’. Emergency Spot Fix cleared my breakouts within 2 days and I am sure if I had applied it more frequently they would have been clear overnight. Another thing I loved about Emergency Spot Fix was that it didn’t leave a white residue on my skin after it dried like most spot treatments do and I didn’t get the tingle that comes with other spot treatments.

Emergency Spot Fix contains 5% Benzoyl Peroxide as the active ingredient. Benzoyl Peroxide works by reducing the amount of acne causing bacteria in the pores by increasing skin turnover. It is also antimicrobial. It is also formulated with 7 botanicals including Licorice Root Extract (known to fight inflammation and soothe skin irritation) ; Lavender Extract (calming & soothing) ; Tea Tree Oil (antibacterial) and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract/Green Tea Extract (antibacterial and an antioxidant)

Product Class: Treatment
Active Ingredient: Benzoyl Peroxide
