Help Choosing Right Benzoyl Peroxide

3 posts in this topic

HI everyone,

I'm new to this site and am finding it great cheer.gif 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.
