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.

I have an area on my face that is extremely prone to break outs. I will get up to five or six large zits at one time in this one area. Someone recommended I use something with 10%BP in it so I got Clearasil Ultra rapid action treatment cream. First I rubbed it into my skin on the infected area, then I dabbed it on the area (w/out rubbing in) and let it dry. I slept with it on and woke up in the mo ... Show Full Comment
