How do you know when you need to use a stronger benzoyl peroxide gel?? I have been using a 2.5% gel qnd i still get pimples and things. Should i be using a higher percentage? Should it be a cleanser or gel? Im really confused..

Usually a percentage higher than 2.5% of BP will just cause more irritation without any added benefit. Most people would say that it is better to use a gel or cream as the product then stays on your face so it can do it's job, rather than if it was a cleanser which stays on your skin for a very short time and is washed off.

How long have you been using BP? Do you use it once or twice a day? If you've only been using it once a day then you might want to try using it twice a day and see how your skin handles that.
