The workhorse 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.

I will try to do another review with pictures soon but as of right now I’ve been using this product for about 2 weeks and I’m truly amazed at how well it’s been working. As someone who has tried everything under the sun to clear my hormonal and cystic acne, I have not had a cystic pimple since using this product and if I do get a breakout this gel clears it up the next day! Acne is my biggest insecurity and for the first time in years I get to fully be confident! Please don’t ever stop making this product!
This product helped clear away bumps and acne so fast. I had small annoying red bumps on one side of my face and I used this on top of the urea moisturizer and I noticed how, overnight, it significantly reduced the red annoying bumps. Definitely works!
After a couple years of using dermatologist recommended Amlactin, Differin and Neutrogena Water Gel, I decided to try the moisturizer along with the BP gel. Within two days my red bumps that had not moved for a year were dried up (thanks to the BP) and my skin had a glow I had never seen before. The BP gel is extremely gentle on my easily inflamed skin. I have never experienced any other products that have helped so drastically and so quickly. Dry spots on my face that seemed to be permanent, never feel dry anymore. These two products along with the list of hundreds of FA friendly products that the creators made, have given me hope for my skin I have never felt. Thank you Malezia!
I was unsure about contact therapy (leaving on for 5 minutes then washing off), but this has been a game changer. I've been using Differin for with a lot of success, but it wasn't taking care of the non-inflammatory closed comedones around my cheeks and jaw. I added in a once-a-day 2-5 minute contact therapy with this BP and they've almost completely disappeared, along with the redness around my nose and mouth caused by seborrheic dermatitis.
Truely makes your face routine as easy as 1, 2, 3. No more guessing, no more unnecesarry products no more guessing. Just cleanse, exfoliate & moisturize. Only - understandable - downside currently is the ship costs and max amount of products you can order. This will probably get better with time and order volume. Would highly recommend - and am doing so - to any friends family and the like. 10/10
I straight up hate benzoyl peroxide, at least from what I’ve used in the past. Got this because I was putting the urea moisturizer in my cart already and the description for this swears it’s not the benzoyl peroxide from my nightmares. Very pleasantly surprised it’s a silky gel (reminds me of differin), and not that drying white paste I expected. It will bleach your pillowcases and towels though! So get a white pillowcase and towel and you’re set. I alternate with Differin which turns over dead skin for me but my pores would still clog and I’d still get breakouts. This Malezia gel has solved that. Alternating the two works better than either alone for me. Highly recommend you use this with the malezia urea moisturizer (I’ll never be without it).
I developed severe papulopustular rosacea over quarantine. I bought this when I thought I had folliculitis because they present similarly, and didn't use it for awhile because I then realized it was rosacea and my derm recommended other things. None of the recommended actives were working for me, so I went back to this even though benzoyl peroxide is usually too harsh for rosacea, and it worked SO WELL. I use it every other night and always notice an improvement the next morning! My rosacea is well controlled now and this is def a vital part of my routine.
I just began using the products and so far so good. I will continue to try them. I’ve had no adverse affects. And seem to have some preliminary good results. I have both Rosecea and Seb dermatitis do anything that gives me relief is appreciated.
I have had the worst acne my whole life (I’m 31) but since I startet using theese two products, my acne is complitly vanish!!! I’m not kidding! It is amazing! And I live in Denmark so I pay a lot of taxes, actually the taxes cost more than the products, but I will by Them forever!!!! Love love love Them!
I've only been using these two products for slightly less than a month and I'm really loving them!! I'm super duper happy with the moisturizer because before I could never ever find a cream that would just feel nice on my face. All of them would feel sticky, greasy, or just plain weird. But not this one!! Seriously! This moisturizer cream is AMAZING! I will definitely be ordering more. As for the acne treatment gel, I noticed it really helped with with the texture of my skin, and it really helped my seborrheic dermatitis on my face as well. It's almost gone and my most critical area around eyebrows is fully healed. I'm literally in love with these products and cannot recommend them enough <3 Thank you f.c.!
