    Does benzoyl Peroxide treat your acne better or salicyid acid?

    I've used products that had contained these products before and my skin has cleared.. But since I use them together, I don't know if it's the BP that's doing the job or SA
    what do you think?

    i think both salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide helps alot with acne
    every person's skin is different
    my skin can tolerate salicylic acid much better than it can benzoyl peroxide
    i get extremely dry with benzoyl peroxide so i prefer to use saliclyic acid alone and benzoyl peroxide if i have a serious breakout
    i guess they can be both working together for you...when you used them seperately which one did u get better results from?

    My skin gets red and irritated if i use too much BP, i find BP works better than saliylic acid *sp*

    I feel that BP is more effective--I used the salicyic acid for a while and didn't see any noticeable results

    I've been using the Benzoyl Peroxide for about a week now, and my skin looks GREAT! No zits, I'm so happy! The only problem is, I have a hot date this weekend, so I'm going to stop applying it because it's drying my skin out quite a bit. I hope I don't break out again!

    Best of luck to everyone!
