Hi all, I'm 26 now and suffered from severe acne when I was 25. I purchased the 3 pack benzac cream (facewash, lotion and cream 2.5%) and it worked great from me. Use the facewash 2 times a day (morning and night) and apply a layer of the benzac lotion at night time only. Use the cream (2.5%) lightly at night. Continue for about 6-12 months. The 3 pack should last you that long. The only drawback is scarring which is caused by the cream (2.5) but if used in moderation, it shouldn't be too bad. ... Read More
If you are new to benzoyl peroxide or have sensitive skin then this is probably the best choice when it comes to benzoyl peroxide. Some people's skin can't handle it at all but if your skin can take it then it works wonders and gets you clear quick. You can find it on ebay. ... Read More
Been using it for 2 weeks. I have whitehead sort of acne on my forehead. In the first week my skin was irritated, red, flaky and horrible. In the second week it improved though. When I used it with tea tree face wash it made it more irritated. I washed my face USING nivea moisturiser, or any moisturiser, and it made it not flaky. The doctor said results would come in 4 to 8 weeks so patience is key. It got rid of my whiteheads but i have acne scars. I have had this forehead acne for 4 years and... Read More
Benzoyl peroxide is the devil. It is quite potent as an antibacterial which is why it may clear up acne for some individuals (and granted it doesn't lead to antibiotic resistance). However, the way it works is damaging to the skin- it produces free radicals which will kill bacteria but will also damage your own skin cells! This will lead to inflammation, irritating your skin and preventing it from functioning smoothly, and build up of dead materials inside your skin which contribute further to c... Read More
I had raised skin colored bumps on my forehead which created a very uneven skin texture. whenever I stood under a light the bumps on my forehead would become really obvious especially since I have oily skin. I used benzac ac every night and at first the bumps turned red and became pimples which I assumed was the skin purging so I continued with it. my skin did start to dry out after a while so sometimes I would apply cetaphil moisturizer instead of benzac at night. by week 3 there was a noticea...

Hello! I'm new to the Regimen and have just begun using benzoyl peroxide this week. After washing my face at night, i allow my skin to dry, then apply benzoyl peroxide. After about 15 min, I use Cetaphil moisturizing cream. I expect my dry skin to feel relieved from the cream, but gradually the burning and itching sensation increases. It is really difficult not to rub or scratch my skin when this happens.
Is this normal or is there something wrong with the cetaphil cream? I was wondering if may... Read More
