Good product just not for me
Reviewed on August 28, 2013

I bought this product out of pure desperation, I was attending an important event the day I purchased it and had a few pimples on my right side. I quickly applied it in the morning about an hour later I noticed a lot of the redness had gone away and so had some of the swelling. Leaving behind just dark slight bumps where the pimples were. It did over dry the skin when I used a thick amount across my cheek (since I have acne all over it), so be aware of that since it is Benzoyl Peroxide. Anyways it calmed down my acne for that day and a few weeks after, but it did not eliminate it, in fact after a couple of weeks it got somewhat worse. So i stopped using it. I do recommend this product for people with mild acne, but if your acne is more on the severe side (like mine) you should probably use something else.

It's the best if you're not going to use Dan's

I live in the UK so ordering Dan's benzoyl costs A LOT (eventually I splashed out and I was glad I did) but a pharmacy near me that imported some stuff from the U.S. stocked this and I got it (the only other benzoyl I could find on the UK Market was Quinoderm 10% which I used for a couple weeks until I found this so the 'hardening effect' had already worked on me so I did feel the itchiness/burns/etc. from this stuff).

It's a small tube and one lasted me about two weeks but it does its job.

The only thing that's bad about ti is it kind of 'comes off' when you moisturise. It balls up and makes moisturising HORRIBLE!!

Quick fix if you've run out of the treatment
Reviewed on July 16, 2013

I used this for about 2 weeks before I placed my order for the regimen. I followed the Regimen very closely, allowing my face to dry then applying a pea sized amount to infected areas the first 2 weeks then "amping up the dosage" as directed. It worked wonders for me. My hideous, cystic lesions gradually subsided and the scars slowly began to fade. I had severely clogged pores on my lower cheeks, chin, and forehead, resulting in uneven texture/bumpy skin--this helped clear that. It's pretty obvious it would work (it's Benzoyl Peroxide, in a cream), but since it's true that the skin does grow immune to it quickly, it's imperative that you apply a little more product each time you use it. This ensures you are allowing your skin to use the cream's max benefits. DOWNSIDE: the cream formula makes it crazy drying. Do not recommend for those who want to apply make-up daily. You'll look like a dried-out cactus.

used this product over the recommended reviews, only used this for about a month, at first it dries out and fades the pimples but it just turns them into scars. after using this product, my skin became immune, the product just stopped doing it's job. the product didn't work for me because I have more stubborn acne

Reviewed on June 28, 2013

I have used this about two months ago daily. It worked on my skin. By the next morning my pimple would already look smaller. Unfortunately, our skin becomes too immune to certain products like (Benzoyl Peroxide).. So this product stopped working on my skin. I'm using another topical on my face for now, but I will come back to this one in a few months.

Some pimples disappear overnight though it might leave a little scar (because the pimple doesn't vanish) but it really calms down redness and make your pimple bumps either smaller or go away at least after 2-3 days of use.

I use this on giant cysts to get them to come to a head faster over night. Every pimple that I've put this on has come to a head faster. It does not make them disappear overnight.

Almost 40 y.o.; have had acne to one degree or another since 4th grade! My skin is CLEAR. Not a single blemish. Normally get terrible cysts leading up to my period. This time, not a single one. I can't believe that this is what works, after years and years of trying so many things! I apply it every night. Wash with Cetaphil, very gently, no rubbing. Let my face air dry for about 20 min. Generously apply the cream, wait about 20 more min, then gently apply moisturizer.
