The powerhouse behind Malezia's three step regimen. Our moisturizer may hydrate the daylights out of skin, but this is what treats acne, eliminates blackheads, and refines texture! 😉
Featuring 2.5% MICRONIZED benzoyl peroxide, which is an FDA approved topical antiseptic for the treatment of acne.
Perhaps you've tried benzoyl peroxide in the past and weren't a fan because it can be irritating and make skin drier than Satan's weenus. We get it! That's why we emphasized the micronized part.
Micronization is the process of milling down the average diameter of a solid material’s particles. This is important because homogenous dispersions of finer particles have proven to yield better results in fighting acne with less risk of irritation. In fact, one study found micronized benzoyl peroxide actually INCREASED skin moisture!
For reference, our benzoyl peroxide has an average particle size of 5 microns: smaller than the size of a bacteria cell.
But that's not all! We've also included 0.5% sodium phytate for its ability to boost skin moisture and elasticity, regulate oil production, and combat hyperpigmentation.

Long story short, I was on topical steroids for contact dermatitis. After stopping steroids, I got diagnosed with rosacea and fungal acne while also dealing with topical steroid withdrawal. Needless to say, my skin was in terrible shape. I was prescribed ketoconazole cream for the fungal acne and it made my skin very irritated and dry. I tried sulfur wash for the rosacea and found it didn't do anything. I'm now over a month into using the benzoyl peroxide and malezia moisturizer and my skin feels and looks significantly better. I am having trouble getting rid of some of the really stubborn fungal acne spots on my forehead, but overall, I feel really good about these products. If you're someone who feels like you've tried everything and spent a lot of money at the dermatologist, I would recommend giving this a try. I attached pictures of the purge period I went through then another two weeks after that. It's a night and day difference.
Love this product, I don’t normaly have very dry skin, I would say normal sometimes dey or oily depending on the weather. But this combined with swedish winter made my skin very dry. I now use this once every other day or even third, but I don’t have anything to complain about. This saved my skin!
On week 5 right now. Progress seems a bit slow for me. Overall this stuff makes my skin feel less rough. Also, I would be lying if I said I didn't have major progress! Despite this journey being slow, I my skin looks better than it did before I started using Malezia :)
I'm on week 4 right now. Works so far. By God's grace, my skin is cleared! It's getting better. Just waiting for the hyperpigmentation to disappear.
Both products are light and feel great on my skin- I can use the moisturizer more than once throughout the day without the fear of it clogging my pores or making me greasy. The acne gel is clearing my skin up slowly - I can't wait to see what it does in a month!
I use this product for spot treatment and it works wonderfully. My husband recently used it when he broke out and the next day said, “What was that cream you gave me, my pimple is almost gone!”
I waited a while to write this review, but after 3 months of using Malezzia products I finally have those before and after pictures I always dreamed of. I’ve been fighting acne for 9 YEARS with every type of treatment you can think of, even monthly organic facials for a year ($$$).
Finally, I got the acne treatment gel. For about a month, my skin only got worse and everyone told me to stop using it. I wondered if my moisturizer was making things worse.
Then, I used the moisturizer and acne gel together, and after eight weeks of this combo my skin is so much clearer than before. My skin is still healing - but it’s only getting better and better, and 3 months seems like nothing after 9 years.
But anyways, all this is to say thank you to Malezzia, believe the hype and trust the process!
I’ve attached before and after shots of my forehead (biggest problem area). First photo is the day I started, second photo is 3 months after gel, 2 months after moisturizer.
I’m always so hesitant about BP because it works great, but my skin gets red easily. I first patch tested this on my neck. No problems. Then a few nights later used it as a spot treatment. Helped to dry out the pimples and left no scaly, burned skin. I waited about 5 days to see how my skin around it reacted, no irritation or product-caused pimples. I have since upgraded to using it on my entire chin area and has helped so much! Will buy another tube when I run out. Speaking of that, a little goes a lot way.
I never thought the day would come that I would be posting my own review on a product that actually worked for me. I've read f.c.'s skin care guide so many times over the last several years - it was something I would turn to every couple of months whenever I would become fed up with my skin. I still remember when I first came across it and finally learned about my skin condition that wasn't just simple acne. I finally ordered his two products (I wish I did it much earlier). I truly can't articulate how much my skin has improved. Gone are the tiny red, super itchy bumps all over my face/chest/neck. My skin tone is completely even and no longer red and splotchy. When I first started using the products, my husband went out of town for two weeks. When he came back, he commented on how great my skin looked! Especially in the early days, it's natural to be hesitant if a product is even working, but be patient. I honestly thought I would be on Accutane for the rest of my adult life because it was the only thing that kept my skin somewhat at bay. But these simple products paired with vanicream cleanser and a mineral sunscreen are all I need. As someone who always struggled with their skin, whenever I receive a compliment on my skin, I'm like, "me??? seriously?!" Thank you so much f.c. for all of your hard work and dedication to first put together the guide and make these amazing products.
Whenever I feel or see a blemish appear I use it! And over night it begins to heal! By day 4-5 it’s completely gone!
I love it 🤍✨
