Oxy 5 Vanishing Formula 5% Benzoyl Peroxide Regular Strength Acne Pimple Medication Review

November 24, 2013

Acne, pimple, zit. There are so many ways to call this frustrating, difficult and painful bumps that pops out of our skin almost every morning. Not to mention that they also leave ugly scars when they are gone. Hence, they make our life very difficult and miserable and sometimes they are huge which make them even more painful! So those who have acne would have always been trying all sorts of methods to get rid of that undesirable little thing. As a person who always have breakouts myself, I would like to review Oxy 5 Vanishing Formula 5% Benzoyl Peroxide Regular Strength Acne Pimple Medication for those who want to try this product.

Basic Information
Weight: 10 g
Price: SGD 6.80 / RM 9.50

It comes in a small white tube. It’s easy to control how much amount I want.

Product Description 
  • Contains 5% Benzoyl Peroxide 
  • Colourless 
  • Odourless 
  • Greaseless 
  • Helps to 
  • Kill acne bacteria 
  • Dry up excessive oil 
  • Unclog blocked pores 

Texture & Scent 
The texture is a bit watery and slightly cream-like. It is also greaseless as the product claimed to be.The product also claimed that it is odourless and colourless but it has a really strong unpleasant odour and it is actually white in colour. 

Wash skin thoroughly and dry well before using. Dab on Oxy 5, smoothing it into oily acne pimple areas of face and neck. Apply once a day initially, then twice a day, or as directed by a physician. I use once a day at night. 

Pros and Cons 

  • It helps to reduce acne size visibly. 
  • Acne size reduce visibly in one night 
  • Suitable for oily skin 
  • Easily available
  • Affordable
  • Leaves scar 
  • Unpleasant odour 
  • Not colourless ( So I only use it before going to bed) 
  • Will dry up dry skin 
  • Not suitable for sensitive skin 

My Impression 
It works! I use this product whenever a pimple pops out of my skin and it won’t get any bigger the next day! Some do get smaller but not all of them. I’m not sure if it can really unclog pores. Even though my skin is sensitive, I can use this product without a problem which is a big relieve since I took the risk to try this product despite having sensitive skin. Since it’s not colourless, I only use it at night, since it will be kinda weird to have white spots on my dark skin wherever I go. >.< . However, this leaves scar and dried the skin. I would not purchase this again.


Highly recommended for oily skin but not for those who have dry and sensitive skin.
