You might want to try not mixing salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Read this http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php?showtopic=38579

and http://acne.org/faq.html#salicylicacid

Your regimen might be overly harsh on your skin. If you overdry your skin, your body sends a message to produce more oil, which leads to more acne. You meanwhile see your skin getting more oily and more pimply and treat it even harsher and the cycle repeats itself. This might be why you have oily skin despite all the shit your doing.

Also there is no reason to use 10% BP. It has been shown to be no more effective than 2.5% but much more irritating.

well now i'll use the BP at night and SA in the morning.

going up to 8 grams this week

In my experience it's best not to use too many products at the same time.

Try using only BP for a week, then switch to only using SA for a week. You will soon work out what they do for you and if it's worth (or needed) to combine them.

Good Luck :D
