Discussions that mention benzoyl

Acne board


I use the regular/original Selsun Blue. The active ingredient is something like 1.5% selenium sulfide. Check many drugstores (like CVS or Walgreens) and grocery stores (ShopRite). One of them will definitely have it.

I wash my face with the Selsun Blue once a day (usually at night because the sulfur is a bit stinky). In the morning I wash my face with regular Dove soap or a benzoyl peroxide wash (Oxy 10% wash).

My skin is quite oily and definitely NOT sensitive, so this works great for me. If you have drier or more sensitive skin, I would wash with the Selsun Blue every other day or once a day, and the others times with a less drying face wash.

Let us know how it works for you!
