BP definitely damaged my skin but beware of the rebound effect. Have a regimen in place because if you are acne prone, you will continue to break out.....bad. My skin is at the worst that it has been at in a while - so much so that I am considering accutane...again. My skin is now overly oily and i get 3-5 new pimples everyday

I was using the regimen and my skin was very dry, dull and red. Now Ive switched to a BHA morning and night and a pea sized amount of BP at night. My skin is much healthier and far less dry and less oily. I think the amount of BP recommended on the regimen is greatly unnecessary.

yeah bp made my skin red and sensitive easily so i did a tca peel to get rid of the bp effect on from my skin now its glowing and blemishes are healing way faster

all i do is cleanse with a gentle cleanser then toner and moisturize if i need too

I recommend using witch hazel water based as a base before putting on bp.

When using bp my skin used to get really flaky. When combining it with witch hazel it's stopped the flaking. Even if I use bp 10
