I've used Wal-Mart brand benzoyl peroxide gel. It only comes in the 10% variety so I mix about half a finger with five pumps of Neutrogena Moisture SPF 15 lotion for my entire face. I still use On the Spot but only occasionally as it is SOOOOO expensive IMO. The Wal-Mart stuff works but is more drying so I have to moisturize at night as well; however, I pay $1.86 an ounce versus $4.47 for .75 oz of the Neutrogena stuff. My skin is quite oily so it tolerates it okay but for someone with dry skin it may be too harsh...

And here's a quick story about how I was trying to be clever and save money on BP 2.5%...I went to a dermatologist to ask for a prescription. He wrote it out for 60 grams so I thought "Kewl! For my $8 buck copay I'll get $15 bucks worth of BP." Well, long story short...BP is only covered at a higher copay rate on my insurance and the total cost would be $15 versus $14.38 OTC for about the same amount of BP. Needless to say, I felt pretty silly for trying to beat the system and losing :wink: !

Hope this info helps...

I only used one product up till now and that's Benzac Gel 5, from Galderma. I used this one because I couldn't find that Neutrogena On-The-Spot thing here. Benzac works great for me and I only use about half a fingertip (0.5cm) of it each morning. I combine it with Tea Tree facial wash from the Body Shop to wash my face every morning and evening.

I don't know if Galderma sells its products in Canada (it's a Belgian company). Ans since I've only used this one product, other products might work just as well for me. But I thought I'd share my experience anyway. :D

Greets!

I know i live in Canada and i cant find it at Wal-Mart near where i live... they have Neutrogena On-The-Spot patches and other facials creams but not the acne treatment cream arrrggghh. I dunno why they dont they have it and i asked they said theres none of them.

Anyway i tried shopper drug mart but their product price is usually higher than other stores. However i did find it there but if i remember correctly it cost $11.99 (i think reg. price is $$14.99) for a tiny little tube. I didnt get it though lol...

I think OXY and Clean and Clear offer 2.5% BP is offered are those ok to be used in replacing Neutrogena On-The-Spot acne treatment?

For OXY i remember looking at the OXY 5 (2.5%) it contains alot of other chemicals mixed in, is this bad? Whereas Neutrogena On-The-Spot Ance Cream ingredients only list benzoyl peroxide 2.5%.
