the gel is better in my opinion b/c it stays on your face .. you just wash the BP away when you use it in a face wash .. I use a gentle face wash and then use BP gel and it seems to work well .. I was using a BP soap but it irrataed my face before my BP gel and it didn't work .. just my opinion, of course ...

Hey Jim i was wondering what if i use the BP wash and the BP gel? My skin is not irritated by that at all, but i was wondering if the BP wash is enough to take the place of say clearisal Acne wash. Thanks

I'm the other way around. I prefer a BP face wash. The leave-on gel irritates my skin, as it keeps on for too long. I use the BP wash to kill the bacteria, and then I use a salicylic acid gel since it's less damaging. It works very well, although I have these bumps on my forehead that aren't going away. I'm thinking of using an AHA to try and fix it. Dunno what to do about that, but I don't have very noticeable blemishes any longer.

you can get benzoyl preoxide in a gel? i didnt know that, is it less harsh than the cream version? i've tried %2.5, %4, %5 creams, all of which caused some kind of burnyness for me, is the gel version less burny and irratating?

Well anything acne gel form is more harsh to your skin, so if you have sensitive skin i wouldnt get the gel form. Well i decided to use BP wash then use clindamycin.
