    Post Simple Benzoyl Peroxide

    For some, a simple benzoyl peroxide wash, cream, or gel does the job.

    For some, they may argue that it makes it worse.

    Other might say just BP alone is not enough.


    But take it from me, the less products you use on the skin, the better the skin will feel. Heck, water alone might be the answer.

    Nevertheless, Benzoyl Peroxide is still the #1 product used in fighting acne. On top, it is very safe and have no side-effects - besides mild drying if not used properly.


    I have used Mary Kay's Brand Benzoyl Peroxide 5% Gel in the past and worked well.

    Now, another family members needs help in fighting acne and I cannot find this stuff.

    I would like to know if there are any other Benzoyl Peroxide Gel's out there & which are good?:

    Benzac, Benzac AC, Desquam-E, Oxy, Clearasil?

    Aaron, I've used Benzaclyn for months and it did nothing but dry my face out ... it was way too strong. I recently started using Neutrogena On the Spot Treatment (2.5% BP) it has a lower level on BP and it is 100 times more effective than the prescription stuff.
    It has been working just fine for me.

    Good luck.
