to much BP

Recommended Posts

at the moment as im going into week 2,i am on on half a finger of BP,im ramping it up slowly as last night i got very rd and just quit! anyway,so far so good,skin clearing well and no redness but it feels like it will never rub in and im wondering how i can use two full fingers of BP! i keep rubbing very genty but i just end up with a white coating on skin and it drying on top.

im using oxy 10 which is a white cream BP

I find 10% BP cream makes my skin worse. I thought the stronger the better right?

I find the same brand's 5% BP cream works great for me. I use Galderma.

But you said "Oxy 10"-- doesn't that mean Oxy, 10% bp?

it used to be called oxy 1o, and they do different strenghts but this is 2.5 % and i think it may just be called oxy now.

it never rubs in very well because creams suck at absorbing into the skin, especially when they're white ghost-like creams.

edit: i've also found that the higher strength the BP is, the faster it dries, and in turn, doesn't do a very good job of being able to rub it all over the face. get a gel BP.

Any BP that is not a gel (i.e - Dan's BP) is bound to dry ghost white and too fast - try only BP'ing parts of your face at a time. (i.e, your cheeks first, then your forehead, then your nose and chin, etc etc). Tis the nature of the beast with OTC BP's.

Dan's is a gel ^.

It looks opaque coming out of the container, but it dries clear.

A cream is very noticeabley thick and white and often dries white on the skin.

is it normal to feel like your rubbing it in and in and its just not going anywhere?!

I've never had that problem, Kel. But I've always used Dan's BP gel, or Proactiv's BP. The gel absorbs into my skin almost immediately, with little rubbing in. It could be that the Oxy brand doesn't spread as well.
