The best..however
This is the best pure benzoyl peroxide magical treatment you will ever find. It works WAAY better than the Benzac AC 2.5% and the 5%. HOWEVER.. the downside of this cream and benzoyl peroxide as a chemical in general is that once you use it too often (like at least twice or thrice a week for a month), your skin gets immune to it. No matter how much you apply, acne would simply not go away. Once you notice it stops working, you would need to take a 3 month break and then get back to it. During that break, you need to use alternative acids and/or medications in order to treat your acne such as Tretinoin, Differin (gel only, cream is not as effective), Salicylic Acid, etc.

The best there is
This product is an absolute miracle worker and no other benzoyl peroxide really compares to it. The closest I have found is panoxyl aquagel but it was discontinued years ago. If you are looking to get it can be found on ebay.

Acne be gone
I had a very bad skin for the past few years. I never thought that Benzac could clear up my skin! The 10% concentration can also remove acne marks magically!

How long did you use Benzac for until your acne and acne marks disappeared?

I've been using it for over 3 years. It's been a pleasant experience.
This has been my go to product in combating acne for the past 3 years (I started with the 5%). It's not the kindest product when you first start your regimen but it delivers when you stick with it. I'm about 95% cleared now, I still get zits here and there but I've come a long way before I started using Benzac AC. There were times when I wanted to move on to another product, I'm just thankful that I didn't and I'm still using it today. Now, not everybody may have the same experience as I did, from what I understand, it varies from person to person. Still, I'd recommend giving this a try for a couple months.

really great
I have always suffered with having constant breakouts of three or four pimples, and just as they start to go away, I just seem to break out again. I started with the 2.5% and now use 10%, however I only use it actually on a pimple, not on any other skin as it does make it really dry. I also only use it at night as it puts like a white powder over the area where it is applied :)

be careful
I have dealt with really nasty hormonal acne recently, cysts and nasty pustules covering my chin, almost all of both cheeks, jaw line and scattering around my forehead. I used all natural products like salt and honey for two weeks which did help but called for patience, halving the severity in this time. After getting really impatient I picked up a tube of this and Phisohex with hopes for the best. Using the wash twice a day and the gel at night by its self as I have quite oily skin. I am now up to day four of them and my skin is really chemically burnt as I have not allowed my skin to built a tolerance, despite this it has been amazing for clearing my skin. Excellent products, I just need to give them a few days break.

Skin savior
Have been using Benzac AC incrementally for about a year, finally landing at 10 percent and my god, does it work. Sometimes I opt to buy the 5 percent every now and then so as to not build up a tolerance to it, which does the trick. Not entirely sure what the effect of such concentrated BP will be in the longterm, but right now it's just what I need.
