I've been using Clearasil 10% benzoyl peroxide cream for some time now, in the morning and at night. It works, but is a bit of a pain to apply and can leave a chalky appearance if I use too much, etc. I found Oxy benzoyl peroxide face wash instead (also 10%) and while this is much simpler to use, I'm curious if it's equally effective. For example, is putting the cream on before I go to bed and leaving it on more effective than using the wash before I go to bed?
I hate this cream, but I also don't want to backslide after doing well. Any insight or advice is appreciated.
