There doesn't seem to be a review page for the normal one with 10% benzoyl peroxide so gonna do it here.


2 or 3 years back I was battling acne and probably tried every brand at the pharmacy. I realized everything I was trying had salicylic in it and maybe that's why I was getting mediocre results so I went and found this product that contained benzoyl peroxide instead and wow my acne disapeared and never came back!

This is the results from using it on my face:
Medium sized acne went away in days
Oversized acne reduces in size overnight
Pimples that looked like they were gonna burst shrunk and disapeared
Didn't leave any scars
My acne stayed away even if I stopped using the treatment

Seriously smells so bad
Didn't help the small bumps of acne (the really really small ones)
It's a white colour and kinda slimy, would recomend wearing only at night

This product is awsome, Highly recomend it because it's really hard to find annother product with benzoyl Peroxide in it

To be clear, I am reviewing the BP 5% treatment in the green box (there seems to be a lot of different versions of this.) I am on the fence about this, because it is a weird product. Used as an acne prevention night cream under my nose this caused major redness. Used on a pimple, it deleted some of the pimple's redness. But it also caused a whitehead to form on the pimple. So, overall, a crap product. Still keeping it around though in case of emergencies.

The smell is horrendous but there's no denying that it works! I use it at night for a spot treatment when I need it since I don't want to deal with getting whiffs of the smell all day. Improves your blemishes after one application.

i love this product and use this everytime i get a pimple/zit overnight. When I wake up the breakout has tremendously reduced and dried out. I recommend this to anybody who gets occasional breakouts.

I liked this product but not alone. What i do is i use this for the bottom half of my face (eyes down) and use neutrogena invigorating foaming scrub for my forehead. This is because my forehead tends to collect more dead skin and my cheeks dont. I've used this product for about a month now and its decent. I wont say its the best product but it's been keeping my skin clear and not breaking me out.
Although this product does dry my skin out so i need to moisturize more than i usually had to. I recommend this to those that have minor-medium acne.

My boyfriend recommended this to me after my parents kept criticizing my face :(
Well needless to say they stopped complaining about my "pimples". This product definitely helped get rid of those pimples, and with my allergy to salicylic acid, its a great alternative.
The only thing that bothers me is the weird smell...I often feel nauseated by it... other than that it's a great product and definitely works for me :)

The new sensitive skin treatment has 2.5% BP, and that's the one I'm using right now, and I LOVE IT... I used to have those big whiteheads on my forehead and chin, and other places sometimes, and this treatment took care of them...I use it every night after cleaning my face and now I hardly have pimples, just the occasional ones that disappear within a day or 2...it does have an odd smell, but it's not offensive at all, and it actually doesn't matter as long as the lotion is doing its job properly. This treatment contains glycerin to condition skin so it's not drying like some other products that contain BP. It's available in 5% concentration, and I believe 10% as well, for more severe acne.

I have used oxy for the past 5 or 6 years now and it has worked great for me. I ran out and went to buy it again but alas, the new black package has arrived and it said reformulated.

I still bought it and DO NOT BUY IT. You WILL smell like old cheese! I actually think this works better than the old formula, but the smell just kills me. Time to find a new product! Will not repurchase

Used to swear by Oxy 5 Sensitive Skin Vanishing Lotion religiously when it was in the white bottle. Would apply it all over before bed, and it took care of all my zits.

Now, this new black bottle formula doesn't seem to be doing as good a job. As other reviewers mentioned, it stinks, and I'm getting less consistent results.

Sigh! Time for a new solution.
