i found benzagel in my cupboard with 10% benzoyl peroxide and am wondering how it should be used.. and if ppl like it and if its effective?
It depends. Everything I've read on benzoyl peroxide insists that the 2.5% is more effective and less irritating, but I have found 10% to work better for myself. My skin is extremely oily and not very sensitive so that might be why.
ya since i ran out of proactiv my skins been super oily
I've found 10% to work very effective for me. I use a lotion and find it's best to apply after a nice warm-hot shower so the skin absorbs it better after drying and feels like it penetrates the pores more due to them being relaxed and more open. That's what I have found really makes a difference in making BP effective

10% works well for me
I use PanOxyl BP 10%, it did dry my face in the beginning, then it started peeling off, now my skin has gotten used to it, so yeah, I recommend 10%.

My dermatologist told me that it is the BEST topical because its the only one that actually penetrates pores and helps treat acne/pimples.

I don't use it because I'm VIOLENTLY allergic to it. So, if you decide to try it, make sure you test a small area and see how it is 24 hours later. Make sure you test. When i used it my eyes swole shut, and my entire face swole like a balloon and the skins surface turned to cornflakes!! urgh!! I had to take a week off work!!
