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.
Active: Benzoyl Peroxide.
Other: Water, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben.

Comments about Ddf Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% Acne Treatment:

This is the only stuff that cleared my skin up and KEEPS it clear. I am in my early 30's and still use this every night! I don't use it during the day, and if you do - make sure you have sunscreen on (then again, you should always have sunscreen on!!!).
I literally don't know what I would do if this product didn't exist!

Comments about Ddf 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!

    Comments about Ddf Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% Acne Treatment:

    This is the best product I've found over the counter that is most comparable to a prescription acne treatment. It started working right away and it doesn't irritate my skin or cause it to peel like a lot of benzoyl peroxide or acne products have in the past. I gave this four stars because I still have some minor blemishes showing up here and there. Then again I've only been using this for roughly a week and a half, so I anticipate that my skin will continue to improve. I'm pretty much completely clear now which is a drastic improvement from two weeks ago, but I still have a lot of scarring. I can't wait to see how much better it looks in 2-3 months.

    Works as well as Proactiv

    Comments about Ddf Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% Acne Treatment:

    I have used proactiv for almost 10 years,but was becoming very annoyed with their methods of shipment, new products that cost way more, etc. Proactiv worked well for me. I have had acne pretty much since I was 16 and I am now 29. I switched to DDF Benzoyl Peroxide gel treatment to see if I could get the same results as proactiv. Overall, I would say that I do. I still get occasional acne on my chin around my mouth, which is infuriating, but seems to be the story of my life. I use a benzoyl peroxide cleanser followed by this product, followed by the DDF light Dew Moisturizer. It seems to me the results are very similar to what I got before and I have been happy with it. This gel tends to be very drying and makes your skin feel tight, so I recommend a moisturizer afterwards. The DDF moisturizer I use is a good compliment. Overall, I would say this is a good product for people with mild to moderate acne.

    Comments about Ddf Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% Acne Treatment:

    I love this product for black heads, white heads, and acne. It is the only one that works. It does dry out your skin though so be sure to use a good moisturizer after applying. Also, if you wear makeup, make sure you don't rub on the area you applied this to because the residue will flake and ball up. Just pat.

      Comments about Ddf Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% Acne Treatment:

      I keep coming back to this product again and again. I'm in my mid-thirties and have had acne since I was a teenager. I've used everything for my hormonal acne, including a round of Accutane in my teens, which worked until after I had children. This doesn't clear me 100%, so I always stop using it and try other brands/types of acne meds, but I *always* come back. This is the most effective, most tolerated OTC cream that I've tried. Why do I keep trying other things?!? Product junkie, I guess. ;)

        I am in my 30's and feel like I have tried everything out there to clear up my mild acne. I came across this and it works wonders. I do use it with other products but when used in moderation it clears pimples and doesn't dry out the skin. I apply it in the morning and at night before bed. highly recommend it.

              I was looking for an anti-acne product that isn't super drying, effective, and affordable, so I'm glad I found this product. I wanted a benzoyl peroxide based product instead of a salicylic acid based one because salicylic acid dries out my skin too much. Love this product!
