Amounts of BP

Recommended Posts

If you have a higher percentage of BP, does that necessarily mean that it'll work better for your skin?

I just started using a 10% BP cream at night and a 2% BP night gel seemed to have worked better for me...

if you become irritated, it will only become worse. so they 10% would seem more effective if your skin could handle it. Also, it is said that 2.5% is just effective as 10%. I think the whole idea is to not brutalize your skin

Daxxx basically has it right--2.5% BP is just as effective as 10% BP, but it's gentler to your skin. Generally 10% will irritate your skin more, which can actually aggravate acne. So stick with the 2.5%. And don't forget to moisturize! : )
