Post Benzaclin and or Benzamycin

Ok, I'm going to be getting one of these two creams to apply in the mornings. Can someone tell me what the texture of these topicals are? Is it a clear gel?

They are clear when applied...Really made my face taught looking when I would apply it..So you really need a good moisturizer...How are you doing on the Retin-A now?? I am still battling the ugly breakouts...On it for two weeks today...

My kids prefer the texture of Benzaclin but I just bought Benzamycin because that's what the insurance covers. They also think Benzaclin works better.

Benzaclin is the only thing that works for me. The texture is creamy, and it's not clear. It'll dry white if you put too much on. Good Luck!

Thumbs up

I've been using Benzaclin for about 2 1/2 months now and I think it's great!!! It takes away ALOT of the redness from those annoying pimples!!

I totally agree with you kimrick, benzaclin definitely takes away the redness from pimples. I've been using it for about 5 months now, I apply it at night because it tightens my face and dries me out a bit. But it works great and I'm satisfied with the results i've gotten, I reccomend it.
