Why We Love It

This new, advanced micronized formula of benzoyl peroxide (BPO) contains a smaller particle size to penetrate pores more efficiently with a smooth and consistent application. BPO works as a bleaching and peeling agent, is antimicrobial, increases cell turnover, reduces bacterial count, clears up existing acne, and prevents future breakouts. Added bisabolol and sodium hyaluronate soothe and hydrate the skin to minimize irritation and dryness.

  • Micronized formula for smooth application
  • Clears acne-causing bacteria
  • Unclogs pores and keeps them clear
  • Increases cell turnover
  • Antimicrobial properties
  • Soothing and hydrating ingredients minimize side effects

1.5 oz | Tube

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.

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.

  • Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide (5%): Micronized for a smaller and more consistent benzoyl peroxide particle size that penetrates the pore more efficiently, while also preventing potential irritation. Kills C. acnes bacteria, antimicrobial, and aids in peeling the inside of the pore.
  • Bisabolol: Skin-soothing agent with anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate: The purest, salt form of hyaluronic acid; principal water-regulating molecule that attracts and binds moisture to the skin.
