Discussions that mention benzoyl

Acne board


ProActiv is horrible stuff. Who in their right mind wants to slop that much Benzoyl Peroxide on their face (twice, in the cleanser and repairing lotion)? It burned and after a week of starting to clear, made it much much worse. Are you maybe just breaking out because of the humidity, or PMS? Have you changed perfumes or shampoo? I use Lancome but have heard Clean & Clear and AcneFree are the best drugstore brands. Almay makes a bleamish clearing concealer wand with Salicyc Acid in it that actually works really well for drying out little bumps. For sensitive, acne-prone skintypes with only a little acne I think a good skincare routine and a little Salicyc Acid goes a long way.
