Perfection in a bottle. Glides onto the skin. Feels fresh, clean and most importanlty does it's job well.
I love this stuff. I've been using the whole system for 3 and a half months now, and my skin went through a dramatic transformation. I used to have at least 5 to 7 pimples on my face. Now I have only have 1 or 2 very small ones at a time. At first, your skin is going to look like crap. Its going to super dry and red. But give it some time and you wont regret it.
I have very sensitive skin and I believe I could be allergic to BP. I get redness, itchiness, swelling, dryness, and a little crusting. I used to use Clearasil Acne Treatment Cream 10% BP, but it didn't go too well. I tried Dan's 2.5% BP and received the same side effects. Even though BP gets rid of my pimples quickly, the side effects of BP are really bothersome for me. I still try to stick to the reigmen as close as possible, but I use a lot less BP instead of a lot of it. I've found out using less works well for me. If I apply any more than a little BP, the side effects gradually worsen, and I had to stop using it at one point because it got pretty severe. Sometimes, I'd wake up several times during the night with a really bad itch around my face. I had a family member ask me about my face at one point because my whole face looked red as a tomato for an entire week before I lowered the dosage.
I was previously using Benzaclin in the PM and Differen in the AM. But my face was getting really dry, red, and I would always have to worry if I was peeling or not. Now I use this stuff in the AM and PM along with Differen at night. So much less irritating.
This product works. I've been using it for a couple of months thinking that it is "too good to be true." I wake up every morning in hopes of clear(er) skin, and IT IS! It's quite amazing. After having acne from age 12, every produce I have tried (beside extreme prescriptions) have worked the first few days only. This Benzoyl Peroxide works continuously and I am finally having clear skin at the age of 21. Even if you are skeptical, just try it. It's $20, just a normal meal price, and not to mention an extreme self-confidence booster. You must follow Dan's Regimen listed on this website though; it helps out SO much. Good luck for whoever else discovers this miracle product!
I'm of south asian origin, and have had very oily skin, bad scarring and acne on and off for years. A few months ago, I had the worst break out of my life, with big red lumps appearing on my cheeks and jawline daily. I tried countless expensive products to get rid of them, but I just kept getting more and more lumps every day. After reading the reviews on this site, I decided to order Dan's BP, but was not impressed at first. I was expecting overnight results and instead all I got was extremely flaky skin which I have never sufferered from before. I did the regimen as instructed for a few weeks and there were a lot of changes - some good, some bad. My skin felt really tight and dry and it was difficult to cover up the flakes with make up. I was still getting new spots, but they seemed to go down a lot quicker. I now think my skin was just clearing out all the gunk that was stored in the pores. After using BP at first, my pores would feel bumpy, and if I scraped them lightly with my fingernails, blackheads would come out easily as if they were on the verge of 'falling' out (disgusting I know - but also very satisfying!) I stuck with it and although I still get spots occasionally on my forehead and jawline, it is nowhere near as bad as it was before. My pores look and feel really clean and my skin overall feels soft to the touch. I currently have only one big spot and a few small pimples on my forehead (and scarring unfortunately), compared to a face covered in big red lumps a few months ago. I'm not using BP every day anymore as I'm worried about the aging effects, so use DHC Salicylic face milk on alternate days or when I'm away from home. I'm very happy with Dan's BP though so will continue to use it even when my spots clear up completely as I know they could return again at any time.
I have been using the Neutrogena on the Spot for like the last 2 months, and after buying like one of those a week, i decided to get this stuff. Sooo much better. Holy moley! The gel is much smoother for application compared to the Neutrogena cream. Also this makes my face feel smooth and works well under makeup and moisturizers.
best and most economical i've found! :)
I LOVE the new consistency. Almost weightless! I followed Dan's website from before he even made these products. He's come so far! The consistency back then was still great, but a little thick. It used to ball up with my moisturizer or it would make a weird film of the stuff on my face. Now it's light and fluffy. Way to go Dan, for perfecting this product!
I must admit. In a weak moment, I did forsake the skincare bible of Dan Kern and try salicylic acid instead of benzoyl peroxide, But it's just not as effective! Not to mention that it's difficult to find products that are inexpensive and not tested on animals. I'm probably going to stray and try different products every once in a while, but I'll always come back to Dan's classic 2.5% BP treatment because my skin has always been its best with it.
