I have noticed that it brings whiteheads to a head. When all your whiteheads have come to a head- your face can look pretty bad for a little bit, but then the BP kills the whiteheads and reveals smooth skin with red marks. It eventually cleared my face after a few months, but always remember: its only a temporary solution for a greater problem. If you stop BP, the acne will come back.

yup! same as the person above ^ bp pretty much speeds up the shedding of skin cells, so itll just make the whiteheads go through their little life cycle faster. it also kills the bacteria that causes most acne. just a heads up it also makes your skin peel like crazy. i used the regimen and i just couldnt deal with the dryness (im also a swimmer so the chlorine probably made it worse than most people) so i just use it as a spot treatment now, which still works really well! :D

To say it works on whiteheads is probably an accurate way of describing it.

BP prevents future acne, so the acne you already have will just have to take it's course that includes the acne already developing under your skin which can take a few weeks to come out.

Just be patient and keep treating. You'll get there.
