Benzoclear 5 is a potent blemish treatment for mild to moderate breakouts. This treatment helps stop the development of breakouts where they start by oxygenating the skin and killing the bacteria within the pores. Bacteria cannot thrive in oxygen rich environments, making it effective on even the toughest breakouts. Benzoclear promotes the renewal of healthy new cells and gently exfoliates dead skin cells and build up that can clog pores and lead to congestion and acne lesions. Can also be used after waxing or shaving to prevent ingrown hairs.
Best for: Blemishes on the face, chest or back and to prevent ingrown hairs. Designed for normal, sensitive or dry skin types.
Directions: Apply directly to affected areas in the PM.
Ingredients: Active Ingredient: Benzoyl Peroxide (5%). Inactive Ingredients: Aloe Vera Gel, Citric Acid.
WARNING: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes and eyelids. This product may cause irritation. Mild irritation may be reduced by using the product less frequently. If irritation becomes severe, discontinue use and consult the doctor. Do not use if you have very sensitive skin or or if you are sensitive to Benzoyl Peroxide. Keep from heat. Keep out of reach of children. May bleach hair or fabrics. Store at room temperature. Keep away from heat and direct sunlight.

I had been using other Vasseur skincare products for about a month when I decided to add Benzo5 to spot treat blemishes I get from time to time. I've been particularly stressed recently and the one-off pimple was becoming more frequent.
I applied Benzoclear 5 on my chin area (as the last thing after my moisturizers), as I was dealing with a fairly large blemish. Within 1 day, the entire area was inflamed, itchy, and the skin turned scaly. I've had dermatitis once when I moved from CA to NY for college 10 years ago but never had an issue since then --until I applied Benzoclear on my face. I immediately started moisturizing the area with coconut oil and within 3-4 days, it cleared up. I waited about a week and then tried applying a *very* small amount of Benzoclear 5 on a blemish that had popped up near my temple and on my cheek. Both areas are also now inflamed, itchy, and a bit scaly to the touch.
I definitely won't be ordering Benzo 5 again and most likely will throw out the bottle I just bought.

I have bought several different products for my daughters acne. This is the best. I didn't mind spending money as long as the products worked but they did not work. Only Benzoclear worked. Outstanding I might add. My friend at work recommended Benzoclear her teenage daughter at the time used it and still uses it and she's 37 now Amazing!!

If I do not use Benzo 5 every time I shave I would be in trouble. I would break out otherwise. I shave twice a week, I shave down and up against the grain to get a close shave. If I do not use benzo 5 immediately after shaving, and for a couple of days after, I would breakout with at least 50 or more whiteheads around my mouth and chin. I highly recommend it prevent breakouts and ingrown hairs.

I've struggled with acne since I was 14 years old. Now I am 24, and it seemed that my acne had gotten worse with time. Everyday I would get a new pimple (or three) near my chin area. For years I tried everything, ranging from proactive to microdermabrasion. No matter what I tired, I was still breaking out and my blackheads were out of control. I finally tried benzo, and after one month I stopped breaking out on my chin! I couldn't believe it. My blackheads also started to decrease. I never break out anymore, and I know it's because of this product. I love vasseur and it has improved my life and skin for the better! Thank you Melanie for your products!
