Description

What It Is: You’ve been using acne-control cleansers for years and while you’ve grown up, they haven’t. Keep the Peace is different. It’s a gentle, foaming cleanser with 1.5% salicylic acid that lets you hit pause on your breakouts without stripping the skin of its natural oils. In fact, its sudsy lather feels quite luxurious. The apple fruit extract acts as a gentle exfoliant (removing buildup that can contribute to breakouts) all while calming and moisturizing the skin. And that dreamy blue hue? That’s all thanks to blue tansy, an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties that cools and soothes problem skin. And it smells just as soothing (never medicinal).


How to Use: AM and/or PM massage a dollop into wet skin for 60 seconds (it's eye-safe), rinse thoroughly with cool water, and pat dry. Refer to Drug Facts for complete directions and warnings.

How to Recycle: Remove the cap and throw it away in the trash. Cut the tube open (but not in half!), remove any excess product, rinse, and toss in the recycling bin.*

*Before you toss anything in your recycling bin, check if the local curbside recycling program for your zip code accepts plastic items that look like our packaging. If it doesn’t, recycle it through the Versed Recycle Responsibly Program by visiting versedskin.com/no-waste.

All of our other products are safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding mamas. However, we always suggest and recommend asking your doctor first. :)

I have only been using this product for a few weeks, but so far I really enjoy it. Often products for "acne prone" skin dry my face out and mess with my sensitive skin, but this product seems to be balanced nicely.

I purchased this for my 13yr old daughter, because she has a lot of blackheads on her nose. She feels that overall help her whole skin. She has a dry to combination skin, so I have to make sure that anything she uses doesn’t dry her skin. This does the job and won’t dry her skin. I would recommend 👍👍

I get hormonal breakouts and this really did help. It not only works but doesn’t make my skin feel stripped. Buying another bottle soon.

First off, I have medium skin color, and combination skin type. I rarely suffer from breakouts and this time around I had a bad one so I decided to try different facial cleanser that were specific from acne. I came across Versed and decided to try after good reviews on YouTube and of course their website. All I can say is WOW! I have only used it a little over a week and my results are phenomenal! At first i was a little nervous for it because it was making my breakout area really try but I was constantly putting on moisturizer throughout the day, along with toner and night serum daily. After a couple of days the dryness cleared, and my skin was looking better and better! I highly recommend this product for those with similar skin types like me. (Medium skin tone, combination skin) I’m highly satisfied with this product

I have been using this for about a month now. I have mild acne and hormonal breakouts (combination/oily skin) so this works on my skin. It does not irritate or dry out my skin, but definitely helps with oil control. I would say so far, my skin has improved. Also, this product goes a long way. I only use a pea-sized drop every use.

Before this cleanser I’ve never tried Versed products but I’m so glad I did! This cleanser is so nice it’s what it says it is calming on my breakouts but also very effective at keeping my skin clear. I love the creaminess of the consistency and how it’s not harsh or irritating. Been using it for about 3 months now and it’s amazing. I’m even excited to use it! Lol This will be my go to. (:

Due to such positive reviews I gave it a try! However, after a wash I started breaking out horribly. Just know it does contain oil, that’s possible why I have broken out.
1 reply from Offspring Beauty Team team - 4 months ago
Hi Anne, Thanks for giving Keep the Peace a try. It does contain salicylic acid, which goes deep in the pore to remove excess oil, sebum, and bacteria. There is a chance that your skin is purging. I recommend sticking with it for a little while longer. While it is uncomfortable in the moment, your skin will thank you in the long run.

kpope - 6 months ago, Verified purchaser
I was using a different brand of salicylic acid wash for a while and then it stopped working. Saw the reviews for this and figured i’d give it a shot. what sold me was the reviews stating the hormonal/cystic acne which is my downfall. i’ve been using it for about a month now and it’s honestly a big difference. less frequent small breakouts and when i get the cystic ones, they are already starting to go down by the morning after. even some scarring has been reduced as well as some dry patches.

Versed has been my saving grace for the last four months. I’ve been using this cleanser (almost daily) along with the exfoliate, brightening solution, clarifying serum, and moisturizer. I cannot be happier. I’m going to add more of their products into my routine! My skin used to have a really bumpy texture with tons of clogged pores. I’ve tried a lot of things to fix my skin but Versed has brought the most significant change.

I’ve always had trouble finding a good cleaner because my skin is oily and dry in some spots. Some cleansers would make my skin feel still oily afterwards or tight. This cleanser by versed made my skin feel so clean. It’s my favorite step of skincare because of how good the cleanser looks. It’s not only me seeing a difference but my sister says my skin looks different in a good way. I’m happy!
