Let me introduce you to Peace Out Skincare, the cult US brand landing into the UK. The brands mission is to help you bring peace to your skin through good, effective and fun skincare solutions like the patent- pending acne dots, patented pore strips, and first-to-market daily targeted routine solutions like the retinol eye stick.
The Acne Dots launched in 2017 in Sephora and have since become the #1 Acne brand in Sephora North America. When they launched in the US they generated 15,000 sales in just one day on TikTok.
The brand’s founder Enrico Frezza knows how it feels to be insecure about skin imperfections. He struggled with acne, hyperpigmentation, and everything in between. Frezza tried more acne products, doctor prescriptions, and infomercial products than you can possibly imagine, and could not find an easy-to-use solution with fast-acting results. His frustration became the catalyst for developing a technology that treated the root cause of our pesky breakouts, not just the symptom.
The breakthrough “A-HA” moment came while Enrico was scouring the drugstore aisles for anything that could possibly clear one of his nasty breakouts. It was then that he discovered hydrocolloid dressing – a biodegradable, flesh-colored dressing normally used to heal wounds in the medical field. He bought every hydrocolloid bandage in the drugstore and began self-testing until he found a one-step, easy skincare solution to treat his acne. That’s when the idea that something better must be developed. After a ton of research and trials, the first prototype Peace Out Acne Dot – was born.
Peace Out was born out of his necessity to develop acne products that actually work and Enrico’s deep desire to build an inclusive acne/skin positive brand by providing people a place to feel safe, empowered.
