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.

This product destroyed my skin. I bought it when i kept getting painful pimples on my forhead and i used it one day and it made my skin feel really tight and dry! After two more days of using it my lips and the area around my lips and the area around my nose were so dry that it was painful and itchy! I stopped using it and my skin is still peeling, dry, red, and IRRITATED! I had really OILY skin and this totally dried my skin out beyond rapair! My face still feels really painful now.

          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.

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

                This cleanser is wonderful! I am a 43 year old who still deals with moderate acne. I also have very oily skin. Here's how I use this...First, I exfoliate my face to get off any dead skin cells. This helps the benzoyl peroxide get into the pores easier. Then I apply this cleanser all over my DRY face and let it sit for a few minutes. It's a great mask! Then I use water and rub my face with my hands for a couple minutes. Then rinse thoroughly. It foams up nicely and doesn't dry out my face. Then I follow up with an oil free moisturizer. I use this product daily and it has really helped control my acne. I hardly get any blemishes anymore! I highly recommend this unless you have very dry or sensitive skin. It might be too drying for some people. I am very grateful for this product!

                I have moderate to mild breakouts. And oily skin on my face only. I use this as often as needed. It dries out my oily face leaving my complexion clear and brighter and my skin texture smoother. I have no complaints.

                This seems to be an effective face wash for controlling acne. I generally just use this in the shower in the AM because if you don't completely rinse it off it will bleach the color from your towels. Also it may be too strong to use more than once a day for me so I'll use a cleanser with salicylic acid in the pm or some sort of oil free cleanser. It's relatively expensive so I'll wait for a sale or buy the CVS brand.

                Love PanOxyl 10! I have been using this for five days and I see a very big improvement. Other products like Clinic, Biore, etc.. would take a month to two months before I saw a difference and then they would stop working.

                I use this in the morning and evenings. Make sure that you get a really good moisturizer because this will dry out you skin, however, I don't find it to be anything too uncomfortable. I mean, Hey! would you rather deal with dryness or the acne?

                After a month I will re-post about how things are going.

                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
