I started using Epiduo (2.5% BP) a week ago, and I just bought today oxy facial cleanser (with 2% Salicylic acid) and Clean & Clear Dual Action moisturizer (oil-free and has 0.5% Salicylic acid), I was wondering is that a good combination for my skin? I have mild to moderate acne and oily skin. I also bought Cetaphil oily skin cleanser (which doesn't have Salicylic acid or BP) to use after I finish the oxy cleanser. I feel unsafe putting all that stuff on my face, and I think it might be overkill with the amount of Salicylic acid and BP. Thanks


Sorry I posted this twice (I created another thread very similar to this one with comments), the page gave me an error and I don't think you can delete a thread.

Some people find that using both BP and Salicylic acid is too irritating and harsh.

I'd skip the Oxy cleanser completely and stick with the Cetaphil. I don't think actives in rinse-off products stay on the skin long enough for any effect anyway... 

AM Routine:
Splash face with water
Stridex Maximum Strength Pads
