I'm using something called Panoxyl 5 (5% concentration). Works very well, but dries my skin a little too much. 10% might be a little too excessive, I don't know what you've tried in the past, but even 5 seems to be a little harsh for me. We are all different, but I think for the most part the average maximum concentration the skin can handle is about 5 percent.

No, your skin can handle way more than 5%. I use a 20% BP gel created by my dermatologist and it has worked so well. NO dryness and it will clear up anything overnight. My acne has only ever been very very mild but I have never found anything that will keep me CONSISTENTLY clear. This has done it. Everyone always thinks that 20% will burn your skin off or something but it doesn't at all...works wonders. I'm also on 50 mg of spiro daily. Also, I have very fair and VERY sensitive skin. Anyways, just don't load it on, but I still think that persagel by Clean and Clear is a great spot treatment.

I think it's safest to start with a lower concentration and build up to the greater ones. Everyone will react differently to BP and once you've applied too much of a high concentration there's no going back and the pain and embarrassment can be immense.

Proactiv's Repairing Lotion (2.5%). Very minimal risk for irritation, very effective, and does not leave *any* white residue behind at all.

I think clean and clear persagel 10 too. ive used it for like a month and a half. you have to be careful how much you use cause it can make it worse...trust me. So use it right and It helps clear your face up but i still have red pinkish marks in areas. i hope they go away and things get better for you all . good luck!

Clearasil Ultra works well with me. Its 10% bp and also has gycolic acid in it. I use the tinted one and helps conceal pimples. When I bought it the first time, my skin actually became a lot clearer in 3 days, just like their slogan.

I used to use Natures Cure, which worked really well too. Its 5% BP and also has aloe vera and allantion in it.

Thumbs up Re: guys and gals, whats the best BP cream out there?

I use Continuously Clear which is 5% BP. It's clearing my skin everyday. I just bought it about 2 weeks ago. It works instantly. The only thing I just ordered 10% for my back because 5% doesn't seem to be doing the trick. I read somewhere that body acne is harder to get rid of because the pores are deeper to penetrate.
