Can I use both Mandelic acid and BP on the same day?

That is, would this order be okay for a given evening:

Wash Face


Apply Mandelic Acid

Wait 30 minutes

Apply BP

Wait 10 minutes

Apply Moisturizer

I'm wanting to add in mandelic acid to see if it can help me with my blackheads, but I'd like to keep BP in there as well if possible. Is something like that okay, or should I skip using BP on the days I apply mandelic acid?

I got a sort of the same question.

I am tryin to use paula choice 2%bha and then use BP at night. This is possible. Mandelic acid also is antibacteriel just like BP.

Maybe u dont need the bp anymore when you see the results of mandelic acid.

Just keep me posted the next weeks, months how it goes. It may be a very effective routine with BP and Mandelic acid for many types of acne.

Alright, well, months later and I've had to change up a few things.

BP for 2 days followed by mandelic acid the next was working okay for a while, but now the BP burns and my face gets extremely red and dry if I try to put it on, even if I leave a day inbetween mandelic acid and BP.

So, I think I'm going to have to drop BP. I may switch to using mandelic acid every second day rather than every third day in this case.
