    I quit using BP recently.

    I woudlnt quit using BP. If it has helped keep your skin clear all this time. TRUST ME- I made the mistake tWICE in my lifetime and I hate myself for being so naive and stupid. You will break out maybe twice as bad and you will regret it. Don't use it everyday if you wish, every other day is good. REMEMBER- there is no cure for acne! You gotta stick with the regimen that works for your skin til the end of time....or until they do find a cure for acne! Keep it under control~!

    IT's been 3 weeks

    SO, its been 3 weeks being on the anitbiotic pills and using the Benzclin cream, FINALLY my acne is starting to calm down!!! Now, I dont have Insurance so the Cream costs me 100$ everytime, (and the tube is very small), there has been a few days where I couldn't apply the cream, so instead I would amp up the application of the BP lotion from Proactiv. I've been RELIGIOUSLY washing my face with Proactiv, and applying the Benzclin cream, taking the pills. You might think that's too much

    off all medication... Skin Great!

    EVERYONE'S SKIN IS DIFFERENT. MY FACE GOT TO ITS WORSE BY JUST WASHING IT WITH JUST A 'CLEANSER'. SOME OF US NEED BP, OR WHATEVER INGREDIENT TO CONTROL BREAKOUTS.

    !!!

    Im on doxy once a day and using BENZCLIN twice a day. And you definitley need a moisturizer!!! I found that Olay Complete Moisturizer, All day UV Spf 15 and it has Vitamins E & C, for sensitive skin, Derm tested, 100% OIl-free, Non-comedogenic.- works well. It doesnt burn when you put it on after the BP gels we're using. Ive tried the Oil Free Nuertogena for Sensitive, (someone recommend it on this website) and it BURNS for a couple of minutes! So, im returning it and getting somethi

    The Effects Of Benzaclin

    I have been on BENZACLIN for 4 days guys~ The cream itself was actually nice, and right now, I have real severe acne- full blown all alon gmy chin, jaw, and cheeks. Did it irritate?

    I have been on Proactiv all my life, the past ten years. Earlier this year, I started getting random breakouts on my chin, due to God knows what, stress, hormones.....( I did do through alot towards the end of the year of 2009- lost my job, ended a 3 1/2 relationship, got sued...) So mabe all those things caused the upcoming postules, because it started getting worse! I stuck it out with Proactiv til a freind of mine said to tr MURAD. IT WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY ENTIRE LIFE! I ended up
