Face Reality Acne Med 5% is a benzoyl peroxide gel for unclogging pores and killing acne-causing bacteria.

Why We Love It

Achieving clear skin can feel impossible some days for people with acne-prone skin. Benzoyl Peroxide fights acne-causing bacteria, helps unclog pores, and keeps them from clogging. Appropriate for normal and oily skin types.

  • Benzoyl Peroxide helps reduce the bacteria that causes acne and aids in peeling the inside of the pore.
  • Recommended for skin prone to inflamed acne, noninflamed acne, and combination acne.
  • Works as an effective spot treatment for problem areas.


1.5 oz. tube.

Who Will Love It

Normal, combination, and oily skin types with acne. Sensitive skin types will likely want to look into gentle skincare alternatives.

Recommended Use

After using cleanser and toner, apply a thin layer to the entire blemish-prone area. Leave on for 15 to 30 minutes a day at first and increase wearing time gradually until medication can be tolerated all night. Slight irritation and dryness are normal and temporary. Unfortunately, moisturizers, lotions, and creams usually interfere with benzoyl peroxide. Hydrabalance Hydrating Gel is a great way to soothe dry skin without sabotaging your Acne Med. If going outside, use a sunscreen. Allow the Acne Med to dry, then follow the direction in the sunscreen labeling.

If irritation or sensitivity develops, discontinue use of the product and contact your Face Reality Acne Specialist immediately.

Studio Tip

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.

What People Are Saying

"I started with the 2.5% Acne Med as part of my routine and I have recently been upgraded to this 5% Acne Med. I would absolutely recommend that you start low and work your way up. Results are not overnight, but you can feel it working, and, now with the 5% in my routine, I’m seeing how the time spent is so worth it. I struggled for years trying so many different products but the Face Reality line is the only thing that actually works. This stuff is magical. Absolutely recommend." ~ Lindsay K.
