Daily Vanishing Acne Treatment Cream provides 10% benzoyl peroxide in an absorbent base with a matte finish. While this is a potent disinfectant that puts the kibosh on acne-causing bacteria, this much benzoyl peroxide is best reserved for blemishes that have been unresponsive to lower strengths.

Regular and continuous treatment can help prevent breakouts. Clearasil® Daily Clear® Vanishing Treatment Cream is dermatologist tested to clear existing pimples and help prevent new ones from forming. It is scientifically formulated with 24 hour control and works with your skin long after application. So you get visibly clearer skin everyday.

Active Ingredients: Benzoyl Peroxide (10%) (Acne Medication) Inactive Ingredients: Water, Propylene Glycol, Aluminum Hydroxide, Bentonite, Glyceryl Stearate SE, PEG-12, Isopropyl Myristate, Methylparaben, Carbomer, Potassium Hydroxide, Propylparaben

Perhaps no other line is more synonymous with decades of zapping zits than ever-present Clearasil. The brand debuted in 1950 and was the first to offer anti-acne products to a teenage audience. The company has had several owners over the years (including Procter & Gamble), but has always kept its place on store shelves. The current selection of products is larger than in years past, yet they remain overwhelmingly disappointing because most of them contain irritating ingredients that don't help blemish- or blackhead-prone skin. Alcohol, menthol and its derivatives, and witch hazel show up repeatedly in these and other anti-acne products at the drugstore, creating a precarious situation that leaves shoppers who are dealing with acne faced with few genuinely effective choices. Luckily Clearasil comes through a few times with some very good benzoyl peroxide products for effective disinfecting, a very good BHA option, and a few other gems.

By the way, although Clearasil has products directed toward adult (instead of teenage) acne, the basic cause and treatment of acne is the same regardless of age. The protocol for handling breakouts does not require a separate category of products; the treatment basics remain the same.

    Product reformulation
    • Product seems to be working for me so far (used it once) but it has been reformulated since Paula's review. The ingredients list no longer contains benzyl peroxide 10% as the active ingredient; they are now sulfur (3%) and resorcinol (2%). There is also fragrance in Inactive ingredients (Water, alcohol denat., bentonite, glyceryl stearate SE, propylene glycol, isopropyl myristate, sodium metabisulfite, parfum, simethicone, methylparaben, and propylparaben).
