How much of a difference does 5% BP vs. 2.5% BP make?

I bought PanOxyl 5% because I'm waiting for Dan's BP (I live in Vancouver) and my skin has been so dry even after using copious amounts of moisterizer. Is that just the nature of BP or will 2.5% be a lot gentler?

I live in Vancouver, too. And there are at least a couple of good 2.5% options here, like Spectro AcneCare and Neutrogena On the Spot. 2.5% is a LOT gentler. Also, PanOxyl has a reputation here of being particularly drying, even at 2.5%.

When I run out of Dan's BP before the next shipment arrives, I make do with Spectro AcneCare 2.5%, which I get at a local Shoppers Drug Mart.

5%, especially the Panoxyl, brand is much harsher on your skin than the 2.5%. Either wait to start CSR until you get Dans BP, or use very, very little of the 5%.
