Face Reality Acne Med 5%
Face Reality Acne Med 5% is a water-based benzoyl peroxide gel that works to unclog pores and fight acne-causing bacteria.
Why We Love It
Benzoyl peroxide (BPO) is a highly effective acne-clearing treatment. It penetrates pores to fight acne-causing bacteria, helps unclog pores, and keeps pores clear. BPO has been used in acne treatment formulas for more than 80 years. It works as a bleaching and peeling agent, is antimicrobial, increases cell turnover, reduces bacterial count, clears up existing acne, and prevents future breakouts. Appropriate for normal and oily skin types.
- Clears acne-causing bacteria
- Unclogs pores and keeps them clear
- Increases cell turnover
- Antimicrobial properties

Who Will Love It
Normal, combination, and oily skin types prone to inflamed, noninflamed, and combination acne.
Not recommended for sensitive skin types.
After cleansing and toning, apply a thin layer to the entire blemish-prone area. We recommend using Acne Med in the evening. Leave on for 15 to 30 minutes a day initially, and increase wearing time gradually until medication can be tolerated all night. Slight irritation and dryness are normal and temporary.
Traditional moisturizers cannot be used under or over benzoyl peroxide. They interfere with efficacy and cause the Acne Med to travel into the eye area. Those that need extra hydration in the PM should use a water-based hydrating gel or serum under your Acne Med. Do not apply products on top of your Acne Med.
If irritation or sensitivity develops, discontinue use of the product and contact your Face Reality Acne Specialist immediately.
Apply a layer of Face Reality Hydrabalance Hydrating Gel under your Acne Med to prevent excess dryness. For best results, pair this Acne Med with other Face Reality products like Ultra Gentle Cleanser and Moisture Balance Facial Toner.
Face Reality Acne Med is stronger than over-the-counter products. Start with a lower percentage and work up.
