    I'm that tiny percentage that gets a pretty gnarly reaction to BP. After using this product for a week,and even after 2 days I saw instant results. i woke up one morning to overly dry red blotchy itchy burning skin. I basically look like I got a severe wind burn around my mouth. As a result I've stopped using the product (for now) until my skin heals.

    I have used many many different acne medications, and this one is the BEST by far. I use 10% B/Peroxide, twice; every night and morning before applying makeup! It's the best thing. I am very prone to acne and i have been using this for 2-3 years with the best results. This particular one is purchased over the counter at any Kaiser pharmacy counters. Other BP do not compare to this! Must use ... Show Full Comment
