Post what strength of BP to use?

ok, so i have found that clinac BPO (7%) is just too strong as it makes my face burn and red....i love the clinac part for controling oil but the BP is too strong...what is a better percent that is still effective...what medicine do you use? triaz? 3%, 5%, what?

yeah studies have proved that the lower strength of BP (2.5%) is often just as effective as the highest strength (10%).

For me it does, micheguns. i've tried a variety of BP creams, gels, ointments, and the only difference i notice is that 2.5% doesn't strip my skin and make it all flakey. It disinfects my skin just as well, and i don't wake up all red and irritated in the morning. Neutrogena is the only one i've found that's 2.5%- it's about $6 and you can get it at pretty much any drugstore.

2.5% is just fine... i have both 2.5% and 5% of Sageskincare BP. I use 2.5% for all over the face, and 5% for spot treatment.

what is the clinac part that reduces oil? also what is the brand name of the 2.5% bp.. i can only find nuetrogena 2% and it comes with very little in the bottle.

I use Clearasil but it's 10%.. i dunno, it works okay I guess and doesnt seem to make my skin red or irritated.. I have seen Oxy though I think and Neutrogena in lower percentages.

I use 2.5% BP and Clinac OC. I couldn't stand the Clinac BPO either.

which one do you put on first, what moisturizer and face wash do you use and do you use a retnoid like tazorac?
