Bp doing it for me (as per usual)

Well just over two weeks since i restarted on b.p 5% and my skin has improved alot, for the first time in ages i have looked forward to waking up and getting out and about without the constant worry of a massive blemish appearing from nowhere.
Yes i still get blemishes but they are only small and seem to heal up alot faster.
B.p is the only product that seems to work for me, no matter what other creams lotions or potions i try i always go back to b.p in the end to correct what the other creams have done.
I know alot of people hate using b.p but my advice would be to use as lower a percentage as you can that gives you visible result's, exfoliate once weekly to remove any shedding skin cells and moisturize any bits of your face that seem to get overly dry with a non greasy moisturizer, also wash your face twice a day with a gentle facial wipe and don't apply anything else.
I also started taking probiotics in tablet form a few weeks ago so maybe they are helping too.
These are the products i use.

Morning
Wash of a morning with a simple oil control facial wipe.

Evening
Wash with a simple oil control facial wipe
Moisturize any dry areas with Thursday plantation tea tree hand and body lotion
Apply quinoderm 5% thinly.

Weekly
Exfoliate
Clay Face Mask

Yea i find that 10% BP is to strong an only breaks me out more. I have far better success with 5%. Are you suppose to moisturize before putting on the medication or after?

scouselad - have you ever tried "Dan's Regimen" (not sure I can post the board it's found on - don't wanna get slapped. You probably would respond marvelously for the rest of your life to that. I'm glad you found something that works.
