Suitable substitute for BP

Hi so I've been lurking around here for the past week checking out this whole regimen. I am eager to try it and buy the supplies I need but I want to buy the right ones. I purchased the neutrogena bp last night and even though I don't have all of my supplies yet...I used some last night on the 3 huge pimples I have in my chin area. This morning they were no longer white and huge which made me feel great! I am a former user of proactiv and I remember that the repairing lotion is 2.5% benzoyl peroxide. Can I use this? I would love to actually use atleast some of the stuff instead of just tossing it in the trash. I have one unopened box of proactiv and another that's not even half empty. If I can't use it then I just can't but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Thanks for your help!

The Proactiv benzoyl peroxide is good, but there is a ton of fragrance in it so if you are sensitive to that, beware. Have you thought about Dan's? It's a way better deal than the Neutrogena or Proactiv benzoyl peroxide.

Thanks for replying to me so quickly! Well I thought about purchasing Dan's but I guess proactiv has me a little disillusioned with buying a "system" for my acne. It sounds dumb but I feel better buying over the counter things first. If this does seem to work for me I will most likely opt to buy Dan's instead of over the counter products.

Hmmm Idk what I will do as far as the proactiv BP. I think I will use the neutrogena first and if my skin really improves I will sneak the proactiv BP in there and see if things start to go downhill. If they do then I will know I can't use it. I don't want to start out using it and just think this particular regimen won't work when it could just be the BP I'm using.

Thanks again!

Sounds good! Oh, and by the way, if you are cautious of Dan's benzoyl peroxide you can try a travel size. I guess it can be used as a "sample".
