Benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid?

I've been using nature's cure for almost a month, and it's working great. I still have a few small pimples and I still have all those annoying red marks but other than that my face looks good. The nature's cure cream is 5% benzoyl peroxide. Last night I bought the new clean and clear clarifying toner, and it's 0.5% salicylic acid. I've heard that mixing these two (benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid) is very effective for treating acne. Is that true? Should I really use them together? The nature's cure drys my skin out just a tiny bit, but it's hardly noticable and the clean and clear has very little salicylic acid in it so I don't think dry skin will be a problem. I just don't want to break out. So is it true that this mixture really really helps?? If anyone has tried mixing these two together please let me know how it worked. Thanks.
