This has been my go to product in combating acne for the past 3 years (I started with the 5%). It's not the kindest product when you first start your regimen but it delivers when you stick with it. I'm about 95% cleared now, I still get zits here and there but I've come a long way before I started using Benzac AC. There were times when I wanted to move on to another product, I'm just thankful that I didn't and I'm still using it today. Now, not everybody may have the same experience as I did, from what I understand, it varies from person to person. Still, I'd recommend giving this a try for a couple months.
I have always suffered with having constant breakouts of three or four pimples, and just as they start to go away, I just seem to break out again. I started with the 2.5% and now use 10%, however I only use it actually on a pimple, not on any other skin as it does make it really dry.
I also only use it at night as it puts like a white powder over the area where it is applied :)
I have dealt with really nasty hormonal acne recently, cysts and nasty pustules covering my chin, almost all of both cheeks, jaw line and scattering around my forehead. I used all natural products like salt and honey for two weeks which did help but called for patience, halving the severity in this time. After getting really impatient I picked up a tube of this and Phisohex with hopes for the best. Using the wash twice a day and the gel at night by its self as I have quite oily skin. I am now up to day four of them and my skin is really chemically burnt as I have not allowed my skin to built a tolerance, despite this it has been amazing for clearing my skin. Excellent products, I just need to give them a few days break.
Have been using Benzac AC incrementally for about a year, finally landing at 10 percent and my god, does it work.
Sometimes I opt to buy the 5 percent every now and then so as to not build up a tolerance to it, which does the trick.
Not entirely sure what the effect of such concentrated BP will be in the longterm, but right now it's just what I need.
I've been using this product for 9 weeks now, ten weeks after I started the 5% one. I've seen great results from the 5% but it really didn't clear me out 100%, more like 95% so I tried this out and thank heavens I did. Since using this, I've only had 4 pimples (small ones), can you imagine that? 4 pimples in 9 weeks, that's crazy! I suffer from moderate to severely moderate acne but this benzac line really saved me. I super recommend this product!
It works! I´ve tried everything available, Accutane, Doxy, SA, BP, home made remedies, expensive dermatologists and nothing even comes close to good as this. It cleared my acne in 3 weeks. I still have one occasional breakout, but nowhere near as bad as before. I love this product and highly recommend it to people who have tried everything.
been using it for 3 days and it really works.. love it!
This stuff works great. It is very drying, but that's why it works. I was using just the straight up 10%, then I tried adding about 15 drops of tea tree oil to the remaining 2/3 or so of the tube I had left, which made it seem to work even better. I have incredibly oily skin, and I even found it too drying to use every day, so I use it on my entire face every other day, and then use it as a spot treatment every day (sometimes 2x for really nasty ones). It has done a tremendous job with no side-effects (other than dryness and mild light-sensitivity). It is incredibly expensive to buy in the US for what it is (about $40 a bottle without insurance, and still about $15-20 with because it isn't a generic), and doctors tend not to prescribe it over other topicals. So I just buy mine in Mexico for about $7/tube (still made in Galderma's French factory). Pretty awesome stuff.
