Product Benefits

  • Dries and clears acne pimples
  • Helps prevent new acne blemishes from forming
  • Works invisibly under makeup or alone
  • Dermatologist and clinically tested to be non-irritating

What It Is

A 5% pharmaceutical grade benzoyl peroxide lotion for acne breakouts that is light and hydrating. It works invisibly so you can wear it under makeup or alone.

What It Does

Clears acne pimples and allows skin to heal, as it helps prevent new acne blemishes.

How to Use It

Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying.

Cover the affected area with a thin layer 1 to 3 times a day. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with 1 application daily, then gradually increase to 2 or 3 times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. If going outside, use a sunscreen. Allow Breakout Control to dry, then follow directions on the sunscreen labeling. If sensitivity develops, discontinue use of both products and consult a doctor.

Safer and cleaner than other OTC benzoyl peroxides, I definitely feel better about using it, though the price is not ideal. For moderate to severe acne I recommend following the instructions and using up to 3 times per day. However, as it can bleach materials, I wouldn't use it at night if you have colored sheets.

After a facial, they recommended this for a spread of baby acne I've had for an extended period of time across my forehead. It wasn't bothering me, just annoying. It's easy to use and it cleared it up within a week. I'm a huge fan now.

I use this morning and night to control the acne I get along my jaw. I've never had more clearer skin in my life. I use about a half an apple seed size amount. This jar lasts like SIX months!!!

REALLY drying!

bright stardull stardull stardull stardull star
I really wanted to like this product based on all the spectacular reviews, but it's seriously destroying my skin. I'm not even applying it all over, just a tiny bit as a spot treatment directly on pimples. I think when I put moisturizer on over it, it smears it around my face. Now my eyelids and the skin around my lips are literally cracked, peeling and incredibly painful. It hurts to blink. I've tried waiting at least 5-10 minutes before putting on moisturizer to let the breakout control dry so it doesn't smear. Doesn't help. Seems to be improving the pimples a little, but nothing miraculous. I've been using it for about 4 days now. So disappointing!

Hi Dani, We're so sorry that you did not achieve the results you were hoping for with Breakout Control. I have a question for you. Which other products are you using along with it? Are they Bioelements or another line? Please let us know. I'd love to talk to you if you can email me your phone number. teresa@bioelements.com. They way you descirbe how you've used it, this shoudl not have happened. This is why I need to dig further to see what may have been the trouble. Benzoyl peroxide is a very safe and OTC approved ingredient. Have you ever used any products with this ingredient before? Let's talk soon so we can see what we can do to help you. Warm regards,
