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.

Q: Are versed products safe to use during pregnancy?

submitted by Jessica - 2 years ago
  • A: Hi Jessica, The products that are not recommended for pregnancy and breastfeeding are Doctor's Visit Instant Resurfacing Mask, Press Restart Gentle Retinol, The Shortcut Overnight Facial, Firm Ground Retinol Body Lotion, and Smooth Landing Retinoid Eye Balm as they contain a form of retinol and/or acids. All of our other products are safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding mamas. However, we always suggest and recommend asking your doctor first. :)

Q: Hi, Is this cleanser more on the exfoliating side or is it suitable for every day am/pm use? I have extremely sensitive combination skin prone to hormonal acne. Thanks in advance!

submitted by Tamara - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Tamara, Keep the Peace isn't an exfoliator at all and is gentle to be used both AM and PM. For more details on how to use, click on the "Show More" button on the "Details" tab, or visit the product page on our site. Thank you!

Versed Problem Skin Collection

About the collection
Excess oil, body acne, and clogged pores? These cleansers, spot treatments, and serums target it all. Exfoliants (like AHAs and salicylic acid) sweep away dead skin cells and target oil and bacteria to reduce the appearance of pores and clear up acne. Anti-inflammatories (such as niacinamide and aloe vera) calm swelling and redness as retinol refines pores. And for those with oily skin, know you’ll only find lightweight, grease-free formulas here.

I used this for several years and it has been the best cleanser for my acne! Target doesn't seem to be carrying it anymore though and it's annoyingly expensive to get anywhere else so I'm trying something else currently and my skin is ANGRY. Bring it back Target :(

This is the ONLY face wash that stops period acne before it starts. If I forget to use it before my period starts, it's the only wash that helps clear up my face. It's a staple in my shower.

I bought this on a whim I have tried so many products and had to come back and give a review. Best product I have ever used hands down …my skin has cleared up so much and I have since bought another! My skin is glass and I don’t make reviews lightly! If your thinking about it … do it!

I’ve struggled with acne for 10+ years and ever since I found this I refuse to buy anything else! Seriously my personal holy grail. I love how it feels when it foams up on my face. It has a nice light texture and washes off easily.

I have bought this product twice and both times I really enjoyed it. I genuinely think this is my primary "first" cleanser and will remain until the formula changes. My only desire is that they make bigger bottles.

Not eye safe as it claims

This product basically has done nothing bad nor great. I couldn’t really tell a difference in using this now that I've been using it for a month and a half. It also extremely irritates my eyes if I accidentally get it in my eyes, which is shy im going back to their gel cleanser that doesn’t. Maybe using this product for way longer could affect my results, but i’d rather not stick around with the eye irritation. Maybe it'll work for some others.

I have acne prone skin and around that time of the month will get hormonal acne and it has cleared up everything!!!!! I couldn’t be more happy. My skin feels so clean once I rinse. I feel like my face doesn’t get as greasy throughout the day and my makeup’s stays better too because of it. Highly recommend for acne prone skin because it’s effective yet gentle and affordable!

Beware Burning, Itching Breakouts

Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
Shopper234 - 8 months ago
This is a horrible cleanser. If you have sensitive skin, you will be left burning and your face is red. I noticed this within the week of using it, went off it a week and returned on it and my face was red the first and third week. I normally don't have bad reactions to cleansers and their other products have worked fine with me, but this is a no.

LClark - 8 months ago, Verified purchaser
I used as directed, waiting and even counting for the time suggested before washing off and never saw any improvement in my acne. Neither face or body showed any change. It is at least a cool refreshing feel but not helpful for acne-calming for my Anglo and acne-prone adult skin.

Lorelei - 8 months ago
I really enjoy the texture and smell of this cleanser and my face feels clean after using it. I have dry skin and use it at night and it has never stripped my skin too much, but I use a lighter, hydrating cleanser in the morning and this one would probably be too strong to use twice a day if you have dry, sensitive skin like me. I get painful hormonal breakouts and this cleanser has helped to calm them down and make them pass faster. It is not a miracle cleanser that made me stop getting hormonal acne or skin texture or make the breakouts go away instantly, but it has brought relief and it does its job nicely (:

Skin worse after using

I thought this would help with my mild, hormonal acne but after using for several days in a row (one separate occasions), my skin is not only worse but is now burning! Beware if you have sensitive skin or any allergies at all. I thoroughly review ingredient lists and this one seemed fine but something about it makes my skin angrier!

I bought this for my husband and have used it occasionally myself. Yes the color is cool, and the texture is very silky, but boy does it smell awful. I can't figure out WHY but I'm glad it dissipates after rinsing. I'm not sure if it's working for him on the acne front - likely will not re-purchase.
