Benzoyl Peroxide?
Jul 20, 2002
I was wondering if anyone is using Benzoyl Peroxide? My derm. just recommended it for me and I have been using it for the past 3 days. If you are using it, how is it working for you? Thanks!

I like BP. I think it helps to control breakouts. It clears them up faster by drying out the acne, I believe. But it can be very drying on the skin, so many people use a moisturizer along with it.. anyone else back me up on what i wrote?
I have used both Retin-A and Differin and to tell you the truth BP works better than both of them! I have been clear since using the Neutrogena On-the-Spot acne treatment. I love it.
My perscription actually just ran out for Benzamycin so for the past few days I have been using 2.5% BP. It is keeping my skin clear very well! Even though benzamycin is BP, it works. But heres the thing, you need to use a pretty generous amount of BP. Ive heard of people going through a tube a week!
Exactly Blitzjade, I go through alot of BP but the stuff works. The only way to get results is to apply it liberally.
Thanks for all your replies! I hope that everyone keeps having good results with their face. Good luck in your fight against acne!
