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.
We've also included 0.5% sodium phytate for its ability to boost skin moisture and elasticity, regulate oil production, and combat hyperpigmentation.

I have struggled so long with acne and harsh scarring , this is the first medicine that has actually worked. Legit love.
I used to have some type of fungal acne routinely appearing on my cheeks like rashes a week before my period NO MATTER how I tried to stop it. I’ve been using this product for several months now and the acne immediately stopped.
I was realllyyy struggling so I went to see a Esthetician and they recommended Face Reality and “medical grade” Products. None of it worked this is my face after 2 weeks. Even worse than before. But this is one week using Malezia products.
This is my first review (of any online product - yea, that’s how strong i feel rn). The only thing that has ever kept my skin clear is BP. I’ve been using the Acne.org BP for a long time and that stuff always irritates my skin. THIS STUFF DOESN’T. My skin actually feels moisturized. I even tried the other dupe of this product (Neutrogena AM Stubborn Acne) and that shit also irritated my skin. PLEASE DON’T CHANGE THE FORMULATION UGH IT’S SO GOOD. K BAI.
I was a little hesitant on buying this because of my sensitive skin but I am so glad I did. I had terrible texture and FA on my forehead so I started using it daily and after 2-3 weeks it left me with smooth skin, a few little red spots here and there but nothing bad. However, after using it so consistently I think I started to get itchy on my forehead so I am preparing to stop using it for awhile. If I get FA back I'll continue to use it again. You do have to moisturize when using this! Overall I love it, it's the only thing that really removed my FA and it never gave me crazy issues.
I was using a different BP already, but for some reason I find this one less drying. The combination of using this with the moisturizer and using moisturizer first has really put my skin in a good position.
It does exactly what I want it to, which is a rare occurrence from a product these days. Before you go to a dermatologist try this first.
Been using it for a few weeks and after the first two-ish weeks of my skin adjusting, it definitely seems to be helping with my acne. I tried a benzoyl peroxide cream when I was a teen that gave me a reaction, but I had no issue with this one. Not overly drying like most acne solutions.
I'm a skincare junkie and am always spending time and money looking at the latest, most-promising skincare (mostly Korean beauty). I struggle with uneven skin texture and redness, and occasionally with fungal acne flare-ups, though less often these days. I kept piling on more promising products lately and my skin started to rebel. Even paring down everything to just cleanser and moisturizer didn't get rid of it, so finally I decided to scrap everything and just do the Malezia treatment gel and moisturizer for the past 2 weeks, and the turnaround is immediate. Skin is calm now, smooth, and the uneven ruddy skintone I've been trying so hard to fix is actually getting better! Possibly some of the turnaround was just giving my skin time to heal from all the other stuff, but I do think that the Malezia products themselves are a big factor. My only complaint is the tube, since a ton of moisturizer had busted out when I first opened it, but the treatment gel tube seems to be fine. Plus since you don't use that much treatment gel, it lasts longer. Now I know, if I start getting too excited with trying other products, that I can rely on this pair to reset my skin, or hopefully this will teach me to just stick with a simple routine permanently and stop falling prey to marketing for other products.
I have been struggling for years with a combination of hormonal and (I suspect) fungal acne. I've been on roaccutane which helped for a couple of years but didn't solve my issue long-term. It's been a huge struggle and I dread to think how much money I have wasted on expensive, useless products and time I've wasted in GP appointments. However, I stumbled upon F.C's blog about fungal acne around a year ago and his skincare recommendations and articles have been a huge help to me. Despite this, I was still suffering with flare ups with seasonal changes and stress. I finally decided to try the Malezia line a couple of months ago (I had been putting it off because if postage times and costs to the U.K) and I couldn't be happier with the results.
As you can see from the before photos, I had a lot of closed comedones around my temples and cheeks with more deep, cystic acne along my jawline and chin. Honestly, the moisturiser immediately soothed my irritated skin and I felt like I could see a difference to my skin within a few days. There was some purging on my chin for a couple of days but it was manageable as it was just a cluster of small whiteheads which cleared up super quickly. My after photos were taken today, 5 weeks after I received my malezia urea moisturiser and the bha gel. Although my skin isn't perfect and I've had a little hormonal breakout, it is 10 times better than what it was. My skin feels really plump, healthy and moisturised and any small breakout that occurs clears up so fast. This is the best my skin has been in in years and I'm more than happy to spend the money in these products as they've completely transformed my skin. Thank you so much for this line, I can't wait to try the cleansing balm too!
