Has anyone ever tried out Benoxyl 5 Lotion from Stiefel (who manufacture hundreds of dermatology-based products)? I bought a 60mL bottle of it a couple weeks back and find it to be a decent alternative to BP Gel or On-the-spot (or if you're waiting for a shipment of the former). It reminds me somewhat of the BP lotion supplied with Proactiv, and, unlike the Oxy BP lotion I've used before, actually vanishes on the skin upon application. It's nothing special price-wise, but definitely seems to be a worthy competitor among all of the other Benzoyl-Peroxide based products that are out there. (Note: As the name entails, Benoxyl 5 is of a 5% concentration rather than 2.5%, which for me has resulted in little difference, due to my skin's tolerance to BP).

I had a tube of benoxyl 5 left over when I started the Regimen so I used it for a while and it is pretty decent. The funny thing was that when I actually got some 2.5% panoxyl aquagel is was MUCH more irritating (even after having used 5% for a few days...go figure).


whoops, the lotion you are talking about might be differnt from the gel...my bad redface.gif
