Sudden spot? Now we’ve got skin emergencies covered! Introducing the Curology spot patch, our new fast-acting hydrocolloid bandage. It’s low-profile and extra thin so you can wear it out and about during the day, or layer it under makeup so you can really go incognito. The best part? The spot patch is designed by dermatologists to be gentle, yet effective. It’s the perfect backup to your Curology custom formula.

We’ve got you covered

We all have good skin days and not-so-good skin days. Maybe you’re stressed out or going through a hormonal surge. Maybe you ate too much dairy and your skin isn’t happy. Maybe you have a big date soon. For all these emergencies, our spot patch is here to support you — without stealing the spotlight.

Specially made without using active ingredients that might irritate your skin, our emergency spot patch is a hydrocolloid bandage that absorbs pus and oil. It acts fast to help minimize and cover spots, and it’s thin enough to layer under makeup. You may forget you’re wearing it!

Skin emergency? Put a patch on it

The emergency spot patch is easy to use:

  • Clean your skin with the Curology cleanser

  • Let skin dry

  • Cover problem area with the emergency spot patch

For best results, make sure your spot has come to a head first. Wait 6–24 hours, then peel off. Repeat as needed.

The spot patch can be a part of your AM or PM skincare routines — whatever works best for you! Just be sure to always apply your spot patch first, custom cream second. Pro Tip: Here are 10 things you can do while wearing the emergency spot patch.

Note that our spot patch is great for emergencies, but for long-term treatment, rely on your custom Curology formula to meet your skin goals.
