  1. Oh that is great! So glad you have managed to find a solution. Don't beat yourself up about it, we are all guilty of rushing into things when we know its probably wise not to in hope for faster results (been there done that haha). You are on the right track!

Hope this helps.
  5. Hiya, I too live in the UK, and found it tricky to get a hold of BP. Back when the Benzoyl Peroxide was easily available I used Quinoderm 5% and that completely rid me of my acne (following Dan's regimen). However when it was discontinued due to production issues, I switched to Panoxyl 10..It didn't have the same effect, and found the high strength irritating to my skin and made matters worse.
