I had this at one point. It didn't do ANYTHING for me, but it didn't make anything worse. Since I'm feeling generous, I'll up the score a little.

Lol at the people saying dont buy it, their skin is probably allergic to this or something because, this stuff is amazing!! I am on my 3rd tube. I use this to give acne a big kick in the butt after my acne wash and acne moisturizer (neutrogena pink grapefruit acne wash, clean and clear 2 in 1 salicylic acid moisturizer) and it truly does work. It reduces everything in size and even redness. I'm wearing it now, and it doesn't feel like a burning or anything, just a slight tingle to show its working. Excited for morning to feel my smooth skin!!!!<3 thank you zap zyt.

I've been using this product for over 3 years. I didn't have crazy acne but I did have monthly breakouts on my forehead. Not only has it improved the oils in my skin, I no longer break out badly. I'll get 1-2 spots every month. I don't exactly use this type of brand though. When I first starting using this I expected break outs and dryness from the reviews. Yes -- I did break out pretty bad when first started using but after a month or so, I had acne-free skin, literally. If you start using it, don't be discouraged when the product breaks you out. It's bringing out all the bacteria onto the skin and that is why you break out initially. Over a few months you will see that it truly does do the magic. I love this product.

I bought this hoping for a cheaper alternative to Clean and Clear Persagel 10 (also 10% Benzoyl Peroxide) and this works just as well. I use it morning and night for active breakouts and every other night to prevent. It's slightly gritty at first (like baking soda) and wears better than Persagel. I have moderate bacne (which is clearing up thanks to this) and mild facial acne.

I just bought my second tube of this today at Fred Meyer. I have got to say, this is the BEST 10% benzoyl peroxide treatment I have found to date. It isn't severely irritating on my skin like the Clean & Clear 10% cream, and I have tried Oxy and Acne Free and they just didn't cut it. This stuff is really amazing. I like to leave it on any problem areas I have overnight, it doesn't completely sink into my skin but that's because I like to put a thick layer of it over my pimples because I can feel it working longer, in my opinion. I wash my face every morning anyways, so its really not an issue. I put it on acne i've picked at, small little pimples, etc and it really helps reduce everything! I have this on my face now as I type. It's not a burning like the other creams I have tried, but I can def feel it tingling. I know it's working it's magic :) sure, this isn't a miracle product, but it's the best I've tried out there. def recommended and my boyfriend uses it with me every night :) His skin is more sensitive then mine, and this doesn't irritate his skin whatsoever. There's def a reason I'm on my second tube! :)

Thank God i got this as a tiny sample. I had little red bumps on my forehead, and my usual sulfur treatment wasn't doing much. I decided to give this a go, thinking my skin needed a new treatment. I wish I would've never made that decision. It went on smoothly and felt a bit dry. I put it on overnight. The next morning, my forehead and chin (where I applied) was RED and itchy. I had to wear foundation, which I hardly ever do, just to even out my skin tone. I have taken everything off right now, and my face still feels inccredibly itchy. No treatments I have ever used has had this terrible effect. NEVER will I buy this.

Pretty good spot treatment! The one thing that impressed me about this gel was that it was extremely gentle the fact that its 10% Benxoyl Peroxide , sort of gave me the impression that once i applied this to my face i would experience a burning or tingly sensation but surprisingly none of that happened! A little goes a looooooooong way with this product, it reduces size, redness, and quantity of the pimples in your face. obviously it isn't a miracle cream that'll get rid of everything overnight but i think its the closest thing to it, it isn't that cheap but it won't break your bank at all, if you're thinking of buying an acne spot treatment this is definitely one to consider!

I did a science project on effective topical acne medications, and this was one of the most effective that I tested on my bacteria, so I decided to try it myself. I don't think this product is a miracle spot treatment, not even close.It still took the pimples I applied this on a while to heal and disappear, but this did speed up the process a little bit. It wasn't overly drying and unlike other acne medications I've tried, didn't hurt my sensitive skin or make me red and blotchy.
My use: I use this only at night (the time when your skin does the most healing) because I think it's too strong to use two times a day. I apply it directly on my pimple with my finger and rub it in. It isn't invisible and does leave a white film around your zit, so I wouldn't use it right before going anywhere. When I wake up in the morning there is some flakes of product where it didn't blend into my skin, but no excess irritation or anything.
Overall, I liked the product. But I think I'll try something different next time.

I'm on my second tube and will definitely repurchase this product. I've also tried the Clean and Clear 10% BP as well as Oxy (which both dry and irritate my skin) and this is definitely the better out of the three. It dries my skin slightly as well but nothing a moisturizer cannot fix. I use this at night in combination with clindamycin gel in the morning whenever I get new pimples. I don't include them in my daily routine and instead try to use them every other night because I find them to be less effective overtime as my skin grows immune to BP. Although the label says gel, but it's more of a creamy gel consistency. I'm totally fine with that though because unlike C&C and Oxy, it does not leave behind any white residue when dries, which may be a plus if you would like to use it but do not have a moisturizer at the time. I gave it a 4 instead of 5 mainly because like many acne creams, it takes some time to work. It's not a miracle worker and don't expect it to be either. Also it doesn't seem to be readily available in my local drugstores (DR, CVS, ect.) I found mine in Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
