So the Neutrogena stuff is expensive, so I was wondering, if you use a mosturizer and other face stuff could you use 5% Bensoyl Peroxide? i already have it, given to me by some dermatologist, or would it really irritate my skin badly? :cry:

If you are doing Dan's regimen, I wouldn't recommend using the 5%. Anything more than 2.5% in my opinion is too irritating which can cause your skin to get worse instead of better. But everyone is different, so some may not have irritation using 5% like others. Personally, I only use 2.5%.
