Any thoughts on BPO? Strength?

Anyone use BPO? I've seen 5% and 10% and wonder if it's worth a try. I'm starting to get some breakouts again and want to get a jump on them.

so many people are really sensitive so start off slow and with a mild formula...(2.5 or 5 percent) i know you want your problems gone fast but start off using a thin layer just at night every other night. i know this seems like it slows the healing process but it really works much better and is less irritating. i made the mistake of using too much and my ENTIRE face broke out!!! dont make my mistake...take it slow and be glad your problems arent worse!!! good luck ;)

I used 10% and was fine (most of the time) but it was very very drying and the only reason my skin could stand it getting applied so often was because my skin is very oily. 2.5% is the best bet.
