I have been breaking out lately and wanted to put scar cream to heal my scars but the pharmacist told me I had to treat my acne first with benzoyl peroxide so I found this in the acne isle. I thought it was a greta buy because it was cheap AND it had the maximum benzoyl you could get for over the counter. I began using it last week and can already see a difference. It helped some of my bumps disappear and it also made me have some pimples come out (which in my opinion it is taking out the dirt). The only bad thing it did was make my skin VERY DRY even though I moisturized, yet again i do use it morning and night. I will repurchase but the tube is huge so it might take a while to use it all up!

Holy moly, is this stuff strong. In Canada they only sell BP up to 5%, so when I found Zapzyt 10% BP at Target a few months ago, I hoarded multiple tubes. A little goes a long way, and it was a great tool in helping me clear up some patches of problem acne I had earlier this year. It's not too drying, considering it's 10%, but I still made sure to use a very good moisturizer in conjunction with this treatment. It works, and it's strong stuff. Buyer beware!

I'm SO glad I changed from 2.5% BP to 10%...and I'm even happier that this is the product I chose. I was initially going to go for Clean and Clear...but I bought this one on a whim. I love it - it has cleared my skin without drying me out or irritating my rosacea. I'll keep buying it as long as it is made!

I notice a small difference when I use this. I only use it as a spot treatment. It seems to dry up the pimples a little bit.

I love ZZ, I have been using this product FAITHFULLY for several years and it clears me up and keeps me from having excessive breakouts, yes I still get some here and now....but I think it's mainly from the harsh weather changes in MI, also the way the weather is so up and down here you have to vary how much moisturizer to use EACH day!! Very annoying especially for someone trying to navigate the new hormones of being in her 30's!!! I find that this product adapts extremely well to different moisturizers, just use a damp towel to wipe away white streaks and you're good to go all day and night without looking oily and the price is so cheap for what it does!! GREAT PRODUCT!!!!

One of the only BP's I have found that is invisible and doesn't leave a noticeable white film on the skin. It sinks right in. I have to be careful not to use it too much because I get peely and dry. It's a great spot treatment. Too bad they don't make a 5% too for everyday.

So, this product works well to prevent and heal up breakouts BUT...the consistency of the product is not conducive to applying moisturizer after which is essential when using a 10% BP solution. When the ZZ dries fully, you'd expect your moisturizer to glide on easily afterwards. With ZZ, I've discovered that no matter what moisturizer I follow up with, the ZZ starts to ball up and flake away causing anything but a smooth surface, which is what I look for in an effective acne treatment. Though the price and packaging is sufficient, I'd say I wouldn't purchase this product again. For a cheapo, DS, BP product, I recommend the Equate BP Gel which has just as much BP but absorbs into the skin much more thoroughly and enhances moisturizer application after it dries for smooth, clear results. If I'm not going anywhere and it's summertime in Texas, I'll continue to use the ZZ when I need to for spot treatment just to use up the tube but I will not purchase again.

I don't use this to prevent acne, but to help get rid of it quickly. It works really well at getting cystic pimples to go away quickly.

this product really works
i was just curious and decided to try this out
im a teenager and have oily skin
before i started this product i used oxy spot treatment and clean and clear salycilic acid spot treatment
and they didnt really help me
i apply this before i go to bed
just the tiniest amount using the back of my make up brush on my pimples or anywhere i feel like im getting a break out
CURRENTLY i have a few pimples but its amazing to what it did in just 3 days ... it does make u red but its better than having yellow nasty pimples so try it

I used ot use this 2 years ago and for a while then it worked well, but once my skin got used to it, it did nothing. Now I started it again and for 1 week I've been using it twice a day with little improvement. It just dried my skin out in the areas I applied it and didnt get rid of pimples. As much as I wanted to like it, I think that I will stick with higher end brands.
