DR SPOT™

DR SPOT™

£8.00 / €9.36

Super Strength Breakout Clearing Gel

Dr Spot™ has pore-refining salicylic and lactic acids (a complex that Soap & Glory like to call PORESHRINK™-R, but you might call a MIRACLE), plus a highly efficacious blend of irritation soothers, redness reducers, and oil-secretion slowers. It’s powerful stuff – and it’s invisible, so you can reapply discreetly as often as you need.

• PORESHRINK™-R complex - an amazing, double-action, beta-hydroxy acid (a blend of encapsulated salicylic and lactic acids) which fights spots by gently peeling away pore-clogging dead skin cells and reducing intra-follicular inflammation, plus extracts of Fomes Officinalis mushroom to tighten pores, and kaolin microclay to soak up excess sebum secretion and smooth the skin’s surface
• WITCH HAZEL - for optimal pH balance on the skin’s surface
• VITAMINS A, C, E & B3 - to stimulate circulation, brighten dark spots, smooth and exfoliate the skin

Emily from London said on 11/05/2016

This is my holy grail of spot products. Honestly, I can't rave about this enough. I was bought this by my mum for when I started breaking out and it clears my spots so well and so quickly. I apply it once or twice a day and my spots go within a day or so! It's crazy good!

Fran_KW from Brighton said on 29/02/2016

I was SO sad this product didn't work for me. I get quite bad hormonal acne and so I was really pleased when I found this product- it was one of the few spot creams (that I could see) with salicylic acid and so I was excited. Unfortunately, I used practically the whole tube, but to no avail. It does sting a bit when you put it on, but I'm guessing that that's dues to the acid content, apart from that I didn't notice any change in my skin.

BreakoutCrisis from UK said on 12/01/2016

So I had a break out on my forehead, the spots was quite red. I used the product and it made the spots and where I applied the gel very red, I don't know if it was a allergy thing but it made the spots very hard to conceal. Don't know if it's due to my sensitive skin but I don't recommend this

Vik from Angus said on 04/04/2015

This didn't do anything for me tbh. I used it for ages but I didn't see any difference. It stings when I put it on my face. I have really sensitive skin so maybe that is why. It was dear for the little tube but it was bigger than I thought and what people were saying in the reviews so I was glad about that. If it works for you then great but it never worked for me. The other thing is that it's like a gel instead of a cream which i think is better than a cream.

shelovestosing from Edinburgh said on 07/02/2015

I love this stuff. I used to have pretty bad acne and still get a breakout every week or so and this is one of the only products I've found that helps. I apply dr spot after cleansing my face at night and when I get up in the morning before I do my makeup. Just had to pop into town today because I finished my first tube and I don't know how I would cope without it.

SpottyStudent from Aberdeen said on 11/10/2014

I have been using this product for years! I've had really bad problems with spots for many years and have visited my GP many times about acne, nothing has ever worked, then one day someone told me to try this stuff and it is a god send!!! all i can say is use it more than once or twice a day, i tend to use it 10-12 times and it clears the spots up in 1-2 days. Perfect. Its the only stuff i religiously use for my skin and even when my local boots stopped selling it i began ordering it online. i must've bought 20+ of these over the year. i keep one in the bathroom, one in the car and one in my bag so that whenever i feel a spot starting it gets to work straight away. Honestly my favourite thing i own.

Kez from Birmingham said on 22/06/2014

This is brilliant for acne! This gel breaks down acne spots well in a couple of days. This is by far the best spot treatment gel I have came across so far and will continue to use as it is a fast break downer, highly recommend this!!

MissJackson from UNITED KINGDOM said on 28/04/2014

This product is a godsend! I am a teen with sensitive skin, I have many skin problems and a lot of products tend to do nothing at all - just irritate my skin. I saw this in boots and it claimed some pretty impressive stuff, so thought id try it. You only need the smallest amount to cover a large area. (my problem zones being my forehead, nose and chin) I applied it to my breakout areas and - wow - half of them gone by the next morning! I used it again the next day, and nearly all of my spots are gone. (I use the product with a good cleansing routine as this is key to helping clear up skin) My sister, who is an adult, has suffered from severe acne from a young age. I showed her this product and it has worked miracles since she has started using it not so long ago. Her acne is almost cleared up!
I still use the product when I get an occasional breakout, it is fab fab fab. Don't know what I would do without it - cant recommend it enough x

Ellexoxo from England said on 21/04/2014

I first saw the product in boots, I immediately thought, "what the heck, let's see if it works"! So I bought it! That night after I had cleansed and moisturised, I put the treatment on my spots, within 10 seconds I could feel my face starting to slightly burn. I know most people think that products that make your skin burn are bad, but with my skin when a spot gel burns my skin, it means it's working, if any spot treatment burns painfully I immediately take it off! So the next day I didn't really notice anything nothing had gone, no redness reduced! But I did the same the next night, the next morning some spots had minimised and there was less redness! I was thrilled! I did the same the next night, and again some spots died down and others completely vanished! I can honestly say that this product has helped clear up skin, my skins isn't completely clear, but it's on the way, I am a teenager so my skin is prone to spots but it really has helped! I defiantly recommend this product, but not to people who have sensitive skin, because as I said before it can make your skin slightly burn! It is a really good product, but the only things I would make negative comments on is that the tube is fairly small, but I think it's small because it's trying to make it last and not make you put a lot of treatment on your skin, because putting to much treatment on your skin can make you get dry sensitive skin! The only other negative thing is the price, but to be fair it is a soap and glory product, their products aren't cheap to make and have very rich, expensive, rare ingredients! I must be honest after buying this product I read through these reviews and slightly regretted buying the product, seeing some negative reviews, but seriously this product works, don't just think it won't work on my skin, my spots are to bad, it may not clear your skin up completely but I swear, you will defiantly notice a difference and so will other people! So just buy it the next time you get a chance, it's your choice it you want to change your life, become more confident, get clear skin, get closer to the perfect life you have always wanted! Take a chance, it will work! What have you got to lose?

Rachel28 from Camberley said on 03/04/2014

I just wanted to add to all of you who have had issues with this cream, I have sensitive skin and have a great tip, your spots get big and red because of your blood cells racing to the place to fight the bacteria, hold an ice-cube over the spot until it is pretty numb, then apply the spot the treatment. the ice slows down the cells & takes away some redness and gives the product more chance to fight the infection form the outside, when your skin re-heats naturally the cells come back slower and have to do less work as the treatment has done its magic, also always moisturize, even if you have oily skin this should help your dry patches.

Sarah from Scotland said on 01/04/2014

I recently bought this product and have used it several times, all without luck. It has not made any difference to my spots and I find the basic sudocrem more effective. It is also quite a small product. However, it is transparent which is always a plus point.

Tia from Derby,UK said on 22/02/2014

I have had a massive spot on my face for a week now and it wasn't going in fact it was getting redder so I popped into boots today and picked up DR SPOT and it is a miracle it is giving me results within 2 hours my spot has gone down so much! AMAZING MUST HAVE

Rhiannon from Cheshire said on 29/01/2014

I have tried countless spot creams, scrubs, everything and nothing really seems to make a great difference. so since this had 1/3 off in boots I thought I would give it a try. at first I wasn't convinced it seemed to bring up the spots that I had but then after a day or two I really started to notice that the spot were going down and that the redness was gone. then after about three days of using it, it has reduced a lot of my spots to almost nothing! really really would suggest this product.

Lauren from London said on 29/01/2014

Used it once, and the difference was dramatic. The redness had decreased and the swelling had stopped! Dr Spot is perfect, and has saved me from feeling self conscious for my weekend with the girls! Job well done!

Ebz from Nottingham said on 21/01/2014

Been using this for what.. 3 days, can already see a dramatic difference!

Claire from Manchester said on 03/01/2014

Gave this a go after reading reviews. Two words - MIRACLE WORKER!!! I've had acne for years and so e of the creams for the GP didn't work as well as this... I adore it! My new "cant-live-without" product!!!

Mel from Liverpool said on 21/11/2013

Wow! I'm amazed at this product. It is my skin saviour. I've tried so many things with little or no effect, after applying this My spots were nearly gone the next day. It works better than the more expensive creams, I also bought this for my sister for her birthday and can't wait for her to try it and be as impressed as me. Will definately be purchasing this again and be recommending it to everybody!

tiff from liverpool said on 20/05/2013

I suffer from acne and blemishes and i gave this gel a go and it is brilliant. i wash my face before i go to sleep and then apply the gel to any spots and by morning they have minimized in redness and size, by day 2-3 it is barely noticeable. I would recommend this to anyone with oily, acne, breakout prone skin. Well worth the money.

Jasmine from Hampshire said on 04/04/2013

I love soap and glory products and am normally very happy with the result but this product didnt work at all for me if not it made my spots worse. Also it burns when you first put it on. I think maybe this product isnt suitable for sensitive skin due to the chemicals in it.

Clare from Coventry said on 19/02/2013

The affect that this product has had on my skin is a miracle. I have used this combined with Face Soap And Clarity & Hocus Focus to try & beat a rash that I have had on my face for two years. I have tried every other product under the sun & none have ever helped - most of them have just made it worse, but this along with the other two mentioned have been a miracle.

As I say on most of my reviews, it's a little pricey but it is worth every penny! It takes one tiny dot of Dr Spot (smaller than a pea) applied directly to your spot & they're completely gone within an hour. You can even feel it working. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a spot free face as quickly as possible! I couldn't live without it!

Amy from Manchester said on 08/02/2013

I bought this about three weeks ago on a boots three for two offer. I was a bit worried that it would not work as i've always had problem spotty skin, now 21 I still get spots around my chin area.... not since using this! I love it! I use it every night and morning and for three weeks now not one spot has appeared and my skin is healing up a treat. Would certainly recommend!!

Sophie RaRa from London said on 31/01/2013

Like all S&G products I love this! I started using Dermalogica in the summer and my skin erupted in spots (at the age of 27!), It was worse than anything I had ever experienced with my skin, after 6 months of battling with different creams to try and sort out the mess that my face had become I bought Dr Spot and 4 days later my skin is finally returning to the way it was, Thanks S&G :-)

Gal12 from UK said on 21/12/2012

This is the best spot cream i have ever used! I have had spots for the last 2 years and i used everything under the sun! I bought this 2 weeks ago and it has been an absolute saviour. It has reduced the colour of the scars and i only have one or two spots compared to 20+. Highly recommended for anyone at their wits end, no need to go to the doctors! I applied it every morning and night and its worth every penny!

emma22 from stevenage said on 16/11/2012

this is the worse spot cream i have ever used. mega annoyed that i wasted my money on this. yes it probably does work if you have barely anything there. its not a spot cream what so ever. i agree with other people that it does absolutly nothing and am disgusted that this product just lies. if you have an actual spot, something noticable it doesnte ven reduce redness. overall.. dont ever buy this EVERRRRRRRR

VelvetBows Blog from London said on 14/10/2012

If I'm completely honest, I wouldn't even be able to give this a 1 star. Has done nothing for my spots, and since I introduced this into my skincare routine, my face has become even more prone to breakouts! Not at all happy with this!

Rexy from London said on 25/09/2012

The best spot treatment around. Works overnight! Never ever going to give this up now!

izzy long fan of s&g from gloucestershire said on 02/09/2012

OMG this is a saviour im going for a family gathering in a week and they wouldn't of recognised me for the spots, but ive been using it for 2 days and my skin is visibly less red and spotty, thank you i love you soap and glory

Vicky from London said on 11/07/2012

One word - Amazing! Have not had any issues since using it (Except that it works wonders!) & will continue to use it until the day comes when I do not have another spot again!...

Joseph from Newcastle said on 23/06/2012

Got this at Manchester Airport and it worked really really well on a big spot I had coming through, I applied DR SPOT in April and I now have a dry patch of skin on my face where the spot was, it's now June nearly April and I've applied moisturiser regularly for the past 2 months and basically the moisturiser isn't working. DR SPOT has made my face a mess.

Lorrie from Guernsey said on 19/06/2012

This works, got it recently 3 for 2 as my 14 yr old son asked for it by name after trying some as a last resort in hope it would help his spots. For him to take note of the actual product is some recommendation, seriously ! It is a fantastic product and a little goes a long way. Tks S & G

LaurenC from Surrey said on 16/05/2012

Ever had one of those painful bright red spots?! USE THIS!! Never realised S&G did a skincare range even though i use their moisterisers! 2 DAYS and my spot has gone down completely! I am amazed how well this works, i have used all sorts of spot creams, prescribed and well known brands that supposedly specialise in spots! Nothing has ever worked as well as Dr.Spot, loved it so much i stocked up whilst it was on 3 for 2 in boots!

This product is a SAVIOUR!!!

Rebecca from Manchester said on 01/02/2012

This really is a fantastic spot fighting gel, its a bit pricey compared to others on the market but this is the only one that has consistently worked for me. Others I have bought before from different brands worked the same but they only seemed to work the first few times I used it, then it was as if they got used to my skin. I've had this for months now and it always helps my spots whenever I apply it, I use it every night before bed. Only need the tiniest amount as well, the small tube will last forever!

Mrs A from Limekilns, Fife said on 25/01/2012

Ok, I've tried and/or owned every single product you've made. I'm quite obsessed clearly but don't worry, I won't stalk you!! Unless of course you stop making Dr Spot! You have NO IDEA what this has done for me!! I'm 41 and having an early menopause (joy) and my skin has decided to be a total swine and break out in so many spots it's unbelievable! Having had awful teenage acne, then years of perfect skin I was devastated. Pure vanity but it's so upsetting! Tried a few products but they were rubbish. I LITERALLY found and bought Dr Spot yesterday. I put it on before bed. This morning, EVERY SINGLE SPOT is healing, some have disappeared completely, and no more have appeared. I officially love you, want to marry you and have your babies, Soap & Glory. I realise of course that is quite impossible but I just wanted to thank you SO SO MUCH for his amazing product which has instantly helped and also helped hugely with my self esteem, which is pretty low at the moment!! Thank you thank you thank you!! xx

Bells from London said on 18/01/2012

I rarely get spots but when I do they're so noticeable so thought I'd try this. The spot(s) have definitely gone down, not disappeared but smaller. So hopefully will be good when some more appear.

not happy from england said on 21/12/2011

this product has burnt my skin making me look even worse like ive got something gorged into my head. it's quite painful and ugly, has also slowed healing process and im really annoyed that there is no warning or instructions on what to do in this situation....

Avalon fulthorpe from Brighton said on 06/12/2011

Dr spot is definitely spot on!!!!! I have always suffered from acne and had to take tablets to stop them coming through, I recently got told I had to stop taking these tablets so of course I started to panic!!!! But not anymore as what worked with the tablets seems to be the same with this product!!! I apply this as I start feeling a spot coming through and it just banishes it from even appearing! This product is so great that I am going to speak to my doctor to ask if he will recommend this to people in the same situation as me, thank you sooo much s&g another genius product xxx

Lexi from Scotland, Aberdeen said on 19/10/2011

Wow! I have only been using this product for 3 days and have seen results. I am a teenager which means spots were my enemy, but I found Dr Spot! I am deffently going to tell my friends about it! Thank you Soap & Glory you have saved me!

Annu Peters from Brighton said on 27/09/2011

This stuff really does work, and pretty fast! It clears my spots without drying my skin out. Whenever I feel a spot starting I dab some of this on and BAM! It disappears :)

Grace from Jacksonville said on 27/09/2011

I tried some of this on a pimple starting to come up at the store and by the time I got home later that night it was already almost totally gone. I was amazed. I usually use the expensive stuff from Sephora but this works so much better than anything I've ever used. Going back to buy it for sure.

Emily-May from Derbyshire said on 27/09/2011

Seriously this product is amazing I bought this just to see if it actually got rid of any spots that came up. But amazingly this product isn't just a cheat it works!!! It is truly incredible. my spot was gone, just like that overnight! xoxoxoxox

Zoe from Portsmouth said on 27/09/2011

AMAZING! I am 35 and have had spots since I was 12 :( I have tried literally everything. Most potions work, to a very limited extent, for a very limited time. I have been using Dr Spot for 4 months and it works! I still get spots, but Dr Spot certainly shortens their life and reduces their size and redness within hours of application. Thank you Soap and Glory :)

Laura from Birmingham said on 27/09/2011

WOW! this has been my lifesaver for the past few months, as a teenager my skin is very prone to breakouts, out of all the various products that I have tried, Soap & Glory have come out top - again! This dramatically reduces redness and size within hours and I can simply dab it on whenever I feel a spot on the go, because it fits in my handbag just fine - and it doesn't dry out my skin :)
