    I was going through a stressful couple of months when I started developing cystic acne. with my pimples being under the skin, it was hard for me to treat them with tea tree oil as I normally would any other pimple. I started using the 10% panoxyl face wash, which helped small pimples but seemed to create larger pimples under the skin. I figured it was too strong so I ordered the 4% on amazon and it has done wonders for my skin! it literally keeps my acne down. I might get a small pimple here and there, but overnight, after washing my face before bed, the pimple is almost completely gone. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who struggles with acne, as benzoyl peroxide is great for acne… cystic acne especially.

    It works great for acne but is drying. Make sure you use a good moisturizer. Just remember, benzoyl peroxide doesn’t work for everyone. It can be irritating.

    Purchased on the advice of our dermatologist for someone in my family. I gave it a try and we are both happy with the results. This does a great job at keeping the shine and oily feeling away for the entire day! And it does not dry the skin!

    I bought this for my son, it was recommended by his dermatologist to use on his back and chest. I really think it’s working, less acne breakouts and clearer skin as a result of using this product. I will buy this again for my son.

    Bought this 4% BP cream face wash on a whim and I’m so glad I did! This may be the best product that I have purchased over the past 14-15 years I’ve been battling acne. I use it twice a day and massage it into my skin for at least 2-4 minutes before rinsing. It’s affordable and I cannot recommend it enough.

    The only other products that have worked for my skin required me to keep 2.5% BP gel on my face for the ENTIRE day, which dried my skin out completely even though I moisturized and wore sunscreen (and ruined a number of my clothes from sweating). This product is amazing because it destroyes acne and frees me from having to wear BP on my face all day. My skin is far less irritated and red now, which is great because it’s now completely clear too.
