my mother had used oxy-10 for over twenty years, and she never once had any sort of acne. remembering this just recently, i ran to wal-mart and bought some. this product literally saved my skin. i suffered from severe blackheads (we're talking about hundreds on my nose) and after using this for less than a week they were completely gone. however, my skin did get excessively dried out, but after applying my moisturizer the problem was solved. i'm going to forever use this product as long as it works because this has been the ONLY thing to completely remove my blackheads. salycic acid never came close to doing the job that oxy-10 did..

Pros:
  • cleared blackheads within a few days, great for overnight relief of sore pimples, not expensive whatsoever, easy access to product from retailers in america
Cons:
  • excessive drying of skin

“Saved my horrible skin like nothing I've ever used before!!”
By on

I never had a skin problem up until a few months ago when I started birth control. Although some say it makes your skin better than ever , that wasn't the case for me. I broke out horribly all over my face, around mouth, cheeks nose forehead you name it! It was horrible I was so embarrassed tried everything from proactive to several prescriptions from my dermatologist. None were working at all until I recently started using tho product about three weeks ago an. It truely is a life saver! I put a thin layer on my problem areas at night and the next morning I already started seeing a difference! It's amazing I also started using oxy maximum face wash in the black and red bottle, they seem to counter act with eachpther which I love! I now only suffer from some dark marks due to the acne and a few occasional pimples other than thy my skin is back I normal and couldn't be better! Super happy about this product!!!

Pros

  • Clears skin fast!
  • Lightens dark spots
  • Makes face feel fresh

Cons

  • Dries skin, use moisturizer!
  • Burns at first
  • for about a month
  • $ 5.69
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I need help right now im trying to wax around my mouth they say it might work over all beside the blackness it good.

Pros

  • reduces size over night
  • makes new pimples disappear
  • not such a bad price lasts like a month

Cons

  • the place I didn't apply it is around my mouth now it's so so dark around it it's embarrassing

I had acne all along my mouth, forehead and sideburns. It was pretty damn awful, until I picked this up at Wal-Mart.

4 weeks later, and I stopped breaking out. 3 months later, and all I have to worry about is scarring.

Make sure you follow the instructions on the bottle. Would definitely recommend this.

Pros

  • DEFINITELY works - but only if you give it time. Mattes your skin and doesn't overdry it.

Cons

  • This WILL bleach your hair if you aren't careful. It takes about 4-6 weeks to kick in and it has a bit of a funk to its smell. The bottles are a little small; they usually last about 1-2 weeks at a time.
  • moderately severe
  • for a few months
  • $ 7
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

This has really helped me with pimples on my forehead. If you put it on before bed, it will clear the acne about 90%. But you need to use it consistantly to get the same reasults after a while.

Pros

  • Improves skin texture over night
  • not over drying
  • tightens pores
  • a little goes a long way!

Cons

  • doesn't always work over night if the pimple is to far advanced
  • light
  • for about a month
  • $ 2.45
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

Very good to begin with but stopped working after a few months. It might work for some people so give it a try. It does bleach clothes so wash your hands after using it! Not a bad product really but it's not a long term solution.

  • Cleared up acne to begin with
  • Cheap

Cons

  • Bleached my clothes
  • Dries up quickly
  • Stings if you start to sweat
  • Stopped working after a few months
  • moderate
  • for a few months
  • $ 4
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

Wow!!! the only thing that really works for me so far , but at the same time i could also say any 10 % peroxide applied directly to pimple would do the same.. This is just in cream form so its easy to apply. Really does work and i would reccomend nothing else for spot treatment.

Pros

  • Clears 90 % of bacteria , Eliminates red aqnd inflamation, calmes down skin / pimple

Cons

  • Can be drying if put on incorrectly ..
  • moderate
  • for more than a year
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

Cons

  • Drys your face out a little but that just means it's working.
  • moderately severe
  • for a few weeks
  • $ 5
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

Oxy Maximum Vanishing LOTION is fantastic! Sadly, it's been discontinued. All they have now is their spot treatment :( The spot treatment works, but it doesn't work to PREVENT. So now I can get rid of the pimples with the spot treatment, but I can't prevent them! It's very dissapointing, and I wish they would bring the Vanishing Lotion back!!!! My skin was FLAWLESS with the Oxy lotion....

It's such a let down to find a product that works 100% for you, and then have it discontinued. Anyone know a product that works as well as the Oxy Maximum Vanishing LOTION?! I've been trying other BP lotions, and they just don't cut it! They've been giving more pimples....so that's counter-productive!

Pros

  • Saved my skin! This was the best product I have ever used in my life

Cons

  • It's a little drying, but that's the point! A little oil free lotion over it and there were no problems.
  • light
  • for more than a year
  • $ 6
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.
