Reviews for Benzoyl peroxide

Sort by:

For Acne: "I have been using benzoyl peroxide 5% wash for a little over a month now. Overall I definitely seen an improvement since I’ve been using it. I also was prescribed doxycycline (pills) & clindamycin (facial wipes) one pill at night with dinner, wash my face twice and use wipes after when face is dry. I’ve seen a lot of reviews that haven’t been touching base on certain things. If your using this wash, cream, or gel it’s best that you continue to moisturize your face. I strongly recommend you use a Daily moisturizer with sunscreen. I’ve been using Olay products and I stick with just that. I do not wash my face with anything else but what my Dermentologist prescribe and I followed the directions. I this product is super good. But if not used correctly it can also harm your skin. "

For Acne: "I was using this product topically on my skin morning and night for all of high school. It cleared up my extreme acne in a matter of days and was amazed. HOWEVER, at times My skin would be so stripped of oil that the edges of my mouth, eyes, and nose would crack (sometimes bleeding.) I would apply coconut oil until they healed. These episodes were rare and my face was overall clearer, until few months ago. Suddenly within a day my entire face was red, itching, burning, peeling. These didn’t stop for a month of only applying water, and pure vitamin E oil to stop the pain paired with antibiotics. This drug was my best frenemy, who I am finally saying goodbye to. I would recommend this to anyone, but beg them to know when to know to say when."

For Acne: "This is by far the best medication available for acne. I had acne since past 2 years (Severe). I used benzoyl peroxide just for about a month and truly speaking...I don't even have a single acne on my face now it's all clear. Thanks to benzoyl peroxide. Do use it❤ I had tried almost everything and this is what really worked. Thumbs up!"

For Acne: "I am using BP 5% for a month now. First, I suffered from allergy then it became zits and it was painful. Benzoyl peroxide really works for it kills the bacteria. After my treatment I will continue using BP but decrease it to 2.5% and use it just 3x a week.Thanks to BP for it cleared my acne!"

For Acne: "I've been on Benzoyl for many months and I've been seeing results since I've been on it. Putting a thin film on your face is effective enough and it lasts long. I recommend applying it even when ur acne is gone and treated because it also prevents acne as well as it treats it. I haven't had a pimple in 3 months or more.."

PanOxyl (benzoyl peroxide) for Acne: "This product works wonders! I've suffered from acne since I was 12 years old, and at 22 I still suffered from constant breakouts. Luckily, my dermatologist recommended this cream and it has worked wonders for my skin. It not only cleared up my breakouts, but I think it prevents new ones from forming because I've hardly had any since using. I highly recommend it to anyone suffering from acne."

For Acne: "I have been using this 5% face wash along with Retin A micro for abouts month now. I do not notice any difference. Was actually breaking out more. Skin is not as red and peeling a the first two weeks (normal). Dries out my face horribly but I use Cervae to moisturize. Seems to work. I use Retin A about 3 times a week. But I used it two nights in a row recently and it just put my face ack to what feels like the first two week. Horrible. :("

For Acne: "This works!!! I had bumbs all over my cheeks and they just disappeared. But sunscreen is a must because the dark spots that you may or may not have become more prominent."

BP Wash (benzoyl peroxide) for Acne: "I have tried a lot of products on my face and this has to be the best. My acne is going away and my skin is staring to glow. I do this wash once a day but I am gradually growing to 2. A little goes along way since this wash does dry the skin. What I do is use noxema deep cleanse wash right after the BP wash and leave it on there for about 3 minutes then wash it off. It's a great moisturizer and after I use some vitamin e oil to keep my skin flawless"

For Acne: "I cannot find anything that compares to the speedy and more effective product like Oxy 10. Now am battling my zits issues take a month or two to clear. Bring back this product for non allergic people like us."

For Acne: "Benzoyl peroxide almost completely cured my acne. When I stop using it my skin gets oily and I become spot prone again. While using it I rarely get a spot. Its excellent for clearing up the skin. The only negative thing is that it can dry out the skin too much and cause redness but thats only when its overused. I use 5%, 10% is just a bit too harsh for my skin."

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: "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 (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."
