BP & SA together

Recommended Posts

Have read a couple of threads where people say they use SA and then spot treat with BP? I thought (although i may be wrong) I read somewhere on this site that it wasnt safe to do so?

I was on Dan's regimen for about 5 weeks but the BP made my face go all red and irritated.

Anyways chucked my then cleanser and am now using Oxy Advanced Gel wash that contains triclosan. I then use that Neutrogena Multi Vitaman acne treatment during the day and so far so good... i like the way it feels, although I cant say that my acne has totally disappeared. It just doesnt look as angry or as red as it did.

However at night, I wash again and then apply Oxy 5 in the quantity recommended by Dan (no one does the 2.5% BP lotions where i live).

Am just wondering, seeing that the Neutrogena contains SA, would it make a difference if i put the BP over the top as per the regimen? Has anyone had any success with doing so?

Also I'm thinking of introducing an exfoliant - any comments on the St. Ives Apricot scrub? Would it be okay to use in the morning, after the wash, but before the MV acne lotion?

Im soo confused but dont want to make things worse
