Desquam-X Wash (benzoyl peroxide) for Acne: My doctor prescribed this wash to me after a medication I was taking made me break out. I have been using this for about a week and my face is already clear! I love it. I use it at least once a day, and sometimes twice a day. The only negative is that it does make your face feel very dry, but immediately after I use it I apply an oil-free face lotion liberally. I am very pleased with this product!
BenzEFoam (benzoyl peroxide) for Acne: I have been using this product for 15 days along with a oral pill and have not seen any changes in my back acne. Going to use the bottle until it runs out. Have moderate back acne.
BenzEFoam (benzoyl peroxide) for Acne: Really great product, has cleared vast majority of back and chest acne. Issues, which I expected with benzoyl peroxide, bleaching of clothes and every few weeks or so my chest will be irritated. I just stop applying to the area for a couple days. Highly recommend.
PanOxyl (benzoyl peroxide) for Acne: I use the PanOxyl foam, and its worked wonders. I have tried many other products on TV, or from the dermatologist. The past 2 1/2 years I used a topical product from the dermatologist, but my acne was just becoming "immune" to it. The 10% benzyol peroxide in Panoxyl really helped to clear up my stubborn acne. My chest, neck, and back were the worse places, and I saw results after the first night. Within 2 days, those areas were completely cleared up. Panoxyl does dry out my face some, but it can be easily fixed with some lotion. When I apply it at night, it's not sticky and it doesn't leave behind any oil. I had problems with those big welt-like pimples, but I have not had a single one since I started using this product!

BenzEFoam (benzoyl peroxide) for Acne: My daughter has been using this for the past 10 days for her chest/back acne and it is fantastic. It's easy to apply and about 90% of her acne is gone. The only thing concern I have is that her chest area is very red and the skin seems dried out. I would highly recommend this medicine.
PanOxyl (benzoyl peroxide) for Acne: My pre-teen daughter started using Pan Oxyl when her face started breaking out. It stopped the breakouts, and I think, prevents others. I've started using it too, and it doesn't make my skin feel dry after use, like Neutrogena.
We recommend it to everyone!
Panoxyl 5 (benzoyl peroxide) for Acne: This bar really works. I've used Proactiv and tried every other product on the market. I also used the 5% acne wash at Kaiser and it didn't work. Whatever is in the Panoxyl, the combination is perfect for my 28 year old skin that's still breaking out. I use it on my face, chest and back. It's a lifesaver.
I've used a product called Clear Zone with benzol peroxide as the main ingredient (3 step process wash, toner and lotion) for over a year. It has been wonderful for me. I am 35 years old and am sick of having break outs. This has worked well for me.
Oxy-10 (benzoyl peroxide) for Acne: People will not believe me, but in desperation one day, I applied Oxy10 to a cist on my dogs head and within a week the cist had dissapeared!
After that I applied it to moles on my wifes ear and chest and the moles slowly dried up and fell off, leaving healthy skin!
The best result was after I contacted a skin irritation after snorkeling in the sea.
For weeks, by back itched worse and worse. The only way I could get relief was to "burn" the itch with hot air from a hair drier. I tried all the ointments that a skin specialist prescribed with no result.
The itchy area started to spread across my back and under my armpits. In desperation, I grabbed a tube of Oxy10 and asked my wife to rub it in well. Guess what? With 1 week,I was cured!
Panoxyl Aqua Gel (benzoyl peroxide) for Acne: I LOVE this product! At 1st sign of a belemish or whitehead that is really painful (you know what I'n talking about). Here's what I did, I put ice on the pimple, to help with pain and swelling and I a put a a thin to moderate layer of PanOxyl Aqua Gel. Most of the time the pimple went away on its on, or it even "popped" on it's own. I totally love this stuff. Anything from PanOxyl family.
