Key features

  • Big 16 ounce size will last for 2-4 months on The Regimen.

Honest reviews


An excellent daily treatment product

I use this once daily for several months now with excellent results. I apply it to my face, chest, shoulders, and back and have seen a huge reduction in acne. After using it every day for a few months I am finally down to a manageable level of pimples.This is only 2.5% BP so I didn’t really have any dryness or other problems when using it. My skin is EXTREMELY sensitive though so sometimes I get some mild burning if I put it too close to my eyes and I get temporary (a few minutes) red spots on my shoulders if I rub it in too rough. Other than that is seems very mild.The consistency of the product is very nice and rubs in the skin well. I put it on extra thick and then apply a moisturizer.For daily moisturizing I use this wherever I apply the treatment:[…]It is a very thick lotion that has not caused any acne for me and does a great job of moisturizing. I had accutane treatment years ago and need a strong moisturizer that doesn’t cause acne and this is the one.Once in a while when I really want to treat my skin and it is feeling very dry I use with the jojoba oil:[…]This stuff lasts forever and makes your skin very smooth and soft. You can mix it with the lotion for a rich moisturizer.Finally clean skin!

★★★★★ Treatment

This is a good benzoyl peroxide treatment. The gel form really makes this more pleasant to use than creams such as Neutrogena On-the-spot, which can ball up, and this is also cheaper in the long run than buying tiny tubes of benzoyl peroxide treatment. I don’t use the recommended amount; I use one pump instead of two, and I only use the treatment at night. I’ve found that since changing my diet (eating less dairy) and taking vitamins such as zinc and D3, I don’t need that much benzoyl peroxide, which is great because my skin gets dry and irritated pretty easily when I use too much.This product has a strange scent, but you get used to it eventually, and it irritates my sensitive eyes sometimes even though I don’t apply it near my eyes at all. However, it definitely helps with keeping my skin clear.

totally effective

i’ve learned from gossmakeup artist (youtube) and that a low dose film of benzoyl peroxide applied daily is the key to keeping skin disinfected during the day. this coupled with the aha+ at night are a very powerful regimen for clearing and controlling acne. maybe this won’t work for everybody, but for me it replaces the med spa dermatologist Rx for retin a microgel and obagi c serum each coming in at just under $100 for me.

Large Size

I just need acne treatment and this was large so I bought it.Pumping make it easier…and I like that.

It works

This is a very good product. You have to be consistent and use a lot. I had terrible cystic body acne on my chest, they were red and painful and really deep all over my chest. I have tried Salicylic acid products but they don’t go deep enough to treat. So I decided to give this a try. Twice a day, use about 3 pumps to cover the center area of my chest and wait and let it dry completely. This took about 3 bottles(3 months) to completely get rid of all the acne on my chest. Occasionally my skin will get flaky and dry and itchy I will use a salicylic acid toner first to wipe and exfoliate the dead skins off, apply this lotion let it dry and then apply a moisturizer. Shipping is more expensive and takes a while, but I found a cheaper alternative on amazon just search 2.5% Benzoyle Peroxide it comes in a 16 oz bottle just like this one and is cheaper. I found it works just as well, it leaves a white film when the lotion dries unlike lotion, but it doesn’t really bother me, I apply a moisturizer over it and it is gone. Over all this is the only thing that helped with my body acne. The key is use A LOT, twice a day, and make sure it dries before you put on your clothes and you will see results.

Amazing Product

I started purchasing these products for my son about a year ago. He had been to doctors and tried various products. The medications upset his stomach and did not work. When he started with Daniel Kern’s products….his face and back cleared up and now look perfect. It made an amazing outcome for my son. I highly recommend these to anyone in need. The shipping costs are a little high…but they stay the same not matter how much you order, so I always stock up. This truly has been a great product for my son and I hope you find similar results

perfect if we use it according to the rules strictly

Amazing product to get rid of acne but works well in synergy (Cleanser + BP + moisturizer).Problem : does not clear all my blackheads after 6 month of treatment (but pimples and whiteheads OK).I’m clean after 4 month of treatment.

I love the whole regimen!

I’ve had amazing results using the regimen! No more horrible cystic acne scarring up my face, my skin is finally beautiful!

Hazel Woodbine, GA

Powerful is the ONLY acne treatment that has ever worked for me. I have suffered from acne for like 13 years. I developed cystic acne after using birth control and I have tried everything except accutane. I have been using this for 2 years and it’s still working. I still have acne every now and then mostly that time of the month but this has been working consistently. I wear this under all of my makeup after I let it dry. I highly recommend this for people with really bad acne.
