I think my face likes 5% BP...

My skin is SO SOFT, I'm not dry at all I really dont need any moisturizer but I use a little anyway.

Is it because 5% is for me or will it get worse later? The effect on the acne however is still like 2.5%.

You might find your skin getting dryer as time goes on, if you are using 5% bp and not using any moisturizer. The CSR can be done with 5%, but I think it is especially important to moisturize to prevent the dryness. It's better to dab on a bit of moisturizer daily than to wait a week or two into it and find your skin flaky and tight and red.

I think it's fine if not a bit better if you can tolerate it. In actuality, a higher percentage would be better if you can handle the dryness and redness. It appears your skin can handle it so go for it. Just be sure to use enough moisturizer and you should be fine.

I would use a 5% also but Dan's gel is better from a financial standpoint long term.
