Directions Using warm water, wash the affected areas for one to two minutes. Rinse lather off thoroughly. Pat dry with a clean towel. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day
Maximum strength for the management of acne. Helps clear up existing acne blemishes and helps prevent the development of new acne pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads.
I used to use this stuff religiously. It would completely dry out my face so that my skin felt completely tightened and horrible, so I would put on tons of moisturizer to fix that. I would say it was 80% effective. I still found myself breaking out once in a while, usually on the side of my face that was laying down on the pillow that night. It has the right ingredient (Benzoyl Peroxide) but the concept isn't right. For benzoyl peroxide to be effective, you need to let it absorb into your skin. You can't just wash it off like soap.
If you're smart, you will get a benzoyl peroxide gel that you can apply onto your face at night, then put a layer of moisturizer over that and go to sleep peacefully knowing that there is a 99.5% chance that you'll wake up the next morning with clear skin. Do a Google search for "Dan Kern's benzoyl peroxide gel" and you will find your answer.
I use it day and night for a week now I am very sensitive to everything and it did not break me out so I m giving it 5 stars and i have very oily skin so it dries out the skin and helps tighten my pores worth a try for 6.00
I didn't purchase this through amazon, but I would like to share my experience. I begin using this daily once a day. After three days I begin using it in the morning and before bedtime. After using it twice daily a rash appeared on my eyelids and on both sides of my mouth. The end results was my acne didn't go away but the pimples did dry up.
