Online Only Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% Acne Treatment

Item #: 2157426 Size: 2.0 oz

Ask a Question

Treat breakouts seriously. Blemishes from adult acne, hormonal acne and even stress develop when dead skin cells trap the P. ACNES bacteria in the pore. Oil then builds up and inflames the pore. Primary considerations to treat and prevent blemishes include exfoliating dead skin cells and minimizing oil. Acne can be treated with a cleanse, treat, moisturize and protect skin care regimen that effectively restores harmony to the skin to achieve a radiant clear complexion. This powerful acne treatment gel decongests pores, controls and treats blemishes and helps prevent future breakouts from occurring.

Key Benefits:

  • Fights & controls acne
  • Helps prevent blemishes from occurring
  • Helps keep pores clean & clear

Dr. Sobel's powerful Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment gel contains 5% benzoyl peroxide, a tried and true tested organic compound that oxygenates clogged pores and frees them of sebum and debris. This bacteria eradicating ingredient is combined with tea tree oil, a natural antioxidant, to protect the skin from harmful bacteria and help prevent future breakouts. Glycerin helps to keep skin moisturized and not dry, a key essential to healthy skin, especially skin prone to breakouts. Experience the doctor's dermatologic blemish fighting acne control treatment for clean and clear skin with fewer breakouts. Ideal for use as a spot treatment for on-the-go breakouts.

Dr. Sobel recommends: Cleansing skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because too much drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two to three times daily if needed, or as directed by a physician. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce frequency of application to once a day or every other day. If going outside, use a sunscreen. Allow benzoyl peroxide product to dry, then follow the directions in the sunscreen labeling. If irritation or sensitivity develops, discontinue use of both products and consult a physician.

Sensitivity Test for a New User: Apply product sparingly to one or two small areas during the first 3 days. If no discomfort occurs, follow the directions stated above.

Precautions: Using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin. If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a physician. Do not use on irritated or broken skin. Do not use on large areas of the body. Stop use and ask a physician if rash, irritation or sensitivity develops and lasts. When using this product, do not use in or near the eyes. If eye contact accidentally occurs, rinse eyes thoroughly with water. If pregnant or breast-feeding, ask a physician before use. Keep out of reach of children. In case of accidental ingestion, get medical help or contact a poison control center right away.

    Comments about Ddf Online Only Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% Acne Treatment:

    I'm on my third tube so I decided I should give it a great review. Im in my mid thirties but still get blackheads and mild acne and have a very shiny t zone. I can put just a little bit of this on my nose chin and any blemishes and it clears them up within a day and leaves my skin looking clean but not red like other benzoyl peroxide spot treatments. Only product I've found that clears my nose of blackheads. I don't put make up over it until it's fully absorbed and use an oil free moisturizer or primer first. Need it forever!

      Comments about Ddf Online Only Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% Acne Treatment:

      DDF has created the Holy Grail of acne fighting medications. This product is amazing. Not only does it work fast, it also helps your skin rejuvenate and reclaim its healthy glow. As an adult I began suffering from breakouts after my daughter was born...cystic acne, clogged pores with blackheads. It was a constant battle and nothing but expensive prescription drugs from a dermatologist would keep it at bay.

      At one particular point in my life I was no longer able to afford seeing a dermatologist and my face went out of control with breakouts. I walked into a store one day that sold this product and the woman working there recommended I try it... she even went so far as to guarantee I would love it and it would work. I was skeptical, as nothing else over the counter has ever worked, but I decided I'd try it. What did I have to lose? Mind you, this was at a time when I had cystic acne from the bottom of my nose down to my jawline on both sides of my face. I began using it twice a day.. morning and evening... and I swear on everything Holy that within three days half of my breakout was gone. Within two weeks of use my face was 100% clear. I have been using this product for about 14 years now and it still continues to work. I will go without food before I go without this product.

      Just a note... you may experience some redness or mild irritation when you first begin using it. This is normal and will go away once your skin adjusts. However, if it's bothersome you can cut it down to using it just evenings, or even every other day if that's still too irritating for you. I however just pushed through the slight redness because I was ready to be done with the breakouts.

      I have recommended this product to many of my friends and even my students over the years and they have all seen amazing results!

        Comments about Ddf Online Only Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% Acne Treatment:

        I bought this because I have extremely oily skin. Basically I get this crazy sheen all the time, even when moisturizing evening and morning. This gel drys up my face, and then I put moisturizer over it. It works so well! My sheen greatly reduces when I wear it and it helps my acne clear up. I think this best used for oily skin If you have dry skin... beware!

          Comments about Ddf Online Only Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% Acne Treatment:

          I use this product at night before bed. I apply a thin layer all over instead of just spot treating because my acne is reoccurring without overall treatment on a daily basis. I have been using this gel for 3 months and I still have some left. A little goes a long way so it should last 3-4 months with daily use. I wasn't a fan of the price at first but once I started using it and realized how long it last I now feel like the price isn't bad for the amount that you get. I also like how there is minimal ingredients and no added fragrance. It is one of the few products for acne that actually works for me. I can tell a huge difference in my breakouts. I will definitely continue to use this product.

          This product has been great on my skin. I've only used it for three weeks but it's been helping my skin not breakout! Mind you, I was waking up with a new cystic pimple everyday.
          The first week it did dry out my skin to the point where it got flaky around the chin and mouth area, but my skin got used to it the more I applied it. I make sure to always apply a hydrating moisturizer after I use the benzoyl peroxide.

          Comments about Ddf Online Only Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% Acne Treatment:

          I've found that benzoyl peroxide is the only ingredient that really keeps my skin clear, especially in the tough spots around my chin. It's hard to find an all-over lotion or gel (i.e. not just a spot-treatment) with benzoyl, but this one has been great for me. I use a dime-sized dab twice a day after washing. This is the best my skin has looked in a long time - it even helped get rid of blackheads and fade dark spots from past breakouts! The only downside is that benzoyl peroxide bleaches some cotton fabrics - but I've learned to deal with it, and it's worth the clear skin!
