anything wrong with using generic 10% BP?

Too strong. Usually it is used as spot treatment only and definately not for use in the CSR.

If your question was relating to the fact that it is "generic", then i dont think there should be a problem.

Yeh, I found 10% too strong for me. I switched to 5% with no ill effects at all.

I recommend starting on 5% straight away.

I couldn't tell you. 5% is what I used and am still using to this day so obviously i'd still recommend it over the 2.5%.

It's very easy to think the strongest is the best.

But I switched from the 10% to the 2.5% of Dan's BP and have noticed MORE improvement with my skin and LESS irratation to boot.

It's the irratation that will kick your ass with the 10%. The 2.5 does the exact same thing, but doesn't dry out your skin so much.

Psychologically, people will always try to buy the maximum strength anything first.

i dont like 10, it makes my skin red and crusty, dont even use it for spot treatments. 2.5 is the best

10 should maybe be used on chest/back, but not in large amounts. 2.5 is perfect for face/neck, and i'd say 5 for other body parts.

Studies have showed that 2.5% BP is just as effective as teh higher percentages without the irritation so I would recommened using 2.5% (prefably Dan's gel! :wub:)
