HI everyone,

I'm new to this site and am finding it great Posted Image however there is so much on here that it confuses me!
I wanted some advice on what BP to use. How did you guys decide which BP to purchase?

For me I just use ZapZyt or Clean and Clear Persa Gel. These are both 10% benzoyl peroxide gels so depending on how tolerant your face is to benzoyl peroxide I would highly recommend these two. They've worked great for my acne. If not you can go with something with 2.5% benzoyl which is said to be just as effective as 10% but with fewer side effect (dry skin, red skin, slight burning sensation). I haven't found any over he counter ones that have only 2.5% so i'm just going to stick to my 10%. :) Good Luck!

If you buy a 10% BP, It should only be used as spot treatment, however if you buy Dans it can be used all over.

My Personal Log Detailing my adventures from "Natural to Not".

Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar for Acne Prone Skin, Clindamycin Phostphate Topical 1%, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 45, Equate Absolutely Beaming Daily Moisturizer, (I mix this and the sunblock together and the sunblock helps mattify the moisturizer), 1x Vitamin D3, 1x Borage Oil, 2x Burdock Root, 1x Vitamin E, 1x Vitamin A, 2x Calcium, 1x Vitamin B Complex, 1x Vitamin C.
Ortho-Tri Cyclen Lo, Cetaphil Anti-Bacterial Gentle Cleansing Bar, Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid, Clindamycin Phosphate Topical 1%, Grapeseed Oil.
