    I have had acne for the better part of the last decade. My skin is combination, oily in some areas and dry in some areas. I have gone through a barrage of different acne products over the years from topical creams to birth control to prescription drugs, you name it I've tried it. After using this product in combo with the biore my skin cleared up dramatically. I had a couple cystic pimples during use, but I think the product draws all dirt and oil to the surface which cause some break outs. Since those 2 pimples I get 2 or 3 superficial pimples here and there. And that's great being that I am used to having 6 or 7 active pimples on my skin that take forever to go away. Let's be realistic, for an over the counter product that used to be prescription it's one of the best out there. Biore facial scrub helps because it smooths out my complexion with the microbeads and it leaves my skin tingly and fresh feeling. I use both in conjunction with eachother. Yes, it tends to dry my skin out and in the winter I look like I'm moulting (lol) But I use an oil free moisturizer and my skin has gotten used to the product. I can safely say it works because I've been using it for over 2 months. Usually I use a product for a couple weeks and it stops working for me. It could also be my hormones, perhaps now that I'm older they're leveling out? Not sure but I know the product plays a key role in the improvement to my skin. Unfortunately, due to my long battle with acne I have scarring and pock marks. I do plan on getting laser treatment when I can afford it. But, at least I feel better about my skin, it's a work in progress but I am grateful I found panoxyl. :) to all you acne sufferers out there I am with you in the struggle. It may not be cancer, but acne can really lower self esteem and turn a normally social person, anti-social.

    I love Benzoyl Peroxide in face wash because it really does take your pimples and little zits/bumps away.I typically use AcneFree Face Wash but since I ran out and my local store didn't carry it anymore, I found PanOxyl. Well let me tell you, this product is NOT meant for people who have moderate acne! Only meant for people who have SEVERE acne. I do not have sensitive skin and only break out with bumps and small acne around my chin and cheeks. Well let me say that this product is way way to strong and caused me to break out even more. I suggest for moderate acne to use 2% or 4% Benzoyl Peroxide in their face wash..more than that, it will cause nothing but major dryness, more acne, and uneven skin tone. And lastly, I have been using this product for four days and discontinued. Not meant for me, will go back to AcneFree

    Pros:
    -Clean feeling

    Cons:
    -Major dryness
    -Cause 10x more acne than usual
    -Redness
    -Uneven skin tone

    Comments about PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash 10% Benzoyl Peroxide, 5.5 oz:

    So I'll try to make this short. I have moderate to severe acne. I found that using the 4% worked, but did not work well enough. So i tried the 10% and it completely blew my mind. I had combination skin, red itchy acne on my forehead, chin, and cheeks, and to top it off I have really bad eczema patches all over my face. Not saying this will work for everyone but this cleared my acne in 5 days!

    I wash with Panoxyl once in the morning and once before bed. (it's important to use just a dime size because a little goes a long way. It's drying so too much will probably be too harsh and do the opposite of clear your skin)
    I dry my face with a clean towel. Splash cold water on and then damp with the towel.
    After I apple my Aveeno Moisturizing Cream (also once in the morning and before bed)

    Did this for about a week and my skin is so clear. I will continue this routine because so far it is the only thing that worked. My skin hasnt been clear in two years and it feels amazing to be back to normal. I had a few old pimple scars left over and for that I just used a mixture of lemon juice (fresh), honey, and tomato juice and it took the scars away within 3 days!

    Hope this helps some acne sufferers!

      Comments about PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash 10% Benzoyl Peroxide, 5.5 oz:

      I purchased this to face wash to help with acne problems on my face. It cleared up my skin within a couple of days of use when I used it on my face twice daily. I lowered the usage to once a day and still saw an acne free face. As of late, I have been slacking and I noticed that my acne started to act up again. I started to use this twice a day on a Monday and by Friday of that week, the pimples became smaller and went away. This is a mirace product and lasts for 3 months at least. It is a great buy and I recommend purchasing it through the auto-reorder and save!

      The first time I used it, it cleared up the acne in 3 days and continous use resulted in never ending breakouts. I ALWAYS had at least 4 pimples on my face.

        My skin can't live without this face wash. I use this face wash everyday with my Clarisonic brush in the shower. It helps to keep my adult acne issues at bay. It will however cause some drying so be careful on how long you leave it on your skin. I also recommend using some oil free lotion on your face after using this face wash to combat any drying. Overall best face wash I have ever used. For my face, the stronger the better.

                A dermatologist recommended this product when I was in my teens. Works better than any other acne soap out there. For not needing a prescription, this stuff is amazing. I am 40 and have been breaking out again, and once again this soap has helped my skin. However, it will dry your skin out so be careful.
