Post BenzaClin?

Hi.

I saw a piece on this "new" acne medication on TV. It's prescription only but combines Benzoyl peroxide and Clindamycin. Wondering if anyone has used this and if so with what effect (also what type of skin do you have?). TIA

How long would it normally take until I notice improvement on my skin?

ohwhataday, could you tell me what type of skin you have? Mine tends to be quite sensitive and usually meds are too strong and irritating...

how would i describe my skin...hm. i have an oily t-zone, but i have very fair skin (i am a red head) so my cheeks are rather dry and if i use too strong of face products my skin flakes. this never once happend to me while i used benzaclin. i think if the BP was 10% it would have been a different story!! i only used it on my chin, upper lip, and nose though. and when i did get a little dry, during the winter, i used cetaphil moisturizer only on my dry parts. it took about a month for me to see the results.

LOVE IT! Especially works well as a spot treatment overnight if you start to see a pimple forming.
