I always use a 10% bp face wash called OXY... Would it be better to use like a gentle face wash and then apply a bp gel or is it better just to use a bp face wash? thanks

Ha, well...I recently started using proactive 2.5 cleanser in the morning to reduce some of my oiliness through the day.

Back in the day, proactive really made my skin a mess...but I think that's just having the bp sit on my skin for hours. I can only handle it if it ends up getting rinsed off. I can also only use it once a day,because I rather be very gentle to my sensitive skin. As long as I keep the cleanser on my face for a good minute,I'm sure it's bacteria killing action is working.

10% IS a lot though,at least for me. I can in no way tell what your skin will do. Some people think BP creams work better,other people like me can't tolerate it. Using BOTH a 10% BP cleanser along side a BP lotion seems a bit irritating to my ears though. 2% works supposedly works just as well as 10%. So my best suggestion is pure experimentation.
