i love this product! i've been battling with acne for a while now and didnt know how to stop it. I have acne around my forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. I had heard good reviews on this product and tired it out. After a month the acne around my nose, cheeks, forehead minimized to tiny bumps. It didnt dry my skin out like other spot treatments would and i love it! i definitely recommend this product for everyone

Great stuff - very effective for most types of breakouts I get, I usually apply this stuff as a spot treatment (and I recommend you do as well, as 10% benzoyl peroxide - no matter which brand - may damage your skin with ongoing use: oxidation damage, dryness, flaking, other kinds of contact dermatitis, etc) during the first day/night when a pimple develops, and 90% of the time this stuff keeps the pimple from getting any bigger, and usually eliminates it completely by the 2nd/3rd day. Works a bit slower on existing inflammation and cystic acne. ZapZyt doesn't exist in Canada, unfortunately, and I either have to get it on EBay or get it on my trips down to Seattle.
With all that said, if you want to apply a benzoyl peroxide product all over your face daily to prevent breakouts, you should consider applying a 2.5% strength product instead of this one, being the maximum strength. I was a little horrified to read some of the posts on here from people who put this stuff all over their face on a nightly basis. Even if you can't see any immediate adverse reaction, there is a possibility that your skin may react to it differently in the long run. As well, I have heard that a 2.5% BP product is just as effective as a 10% one, with the exception of being more skin friendly, I'm in the process of testing this out still, and will update my review later.

I was very sceptical to purchase this product, I've triend a lot of products that claim to work but don't.
I finally gave in a bought it and I am SO glad!
I put a dab on my pimples before I go to sleep and when I wake up it's either gone or close to it.
I would DEFINATLEY buy this again! It was affordable too! $4.99!
The packaging is nice too, so simple and original, I just love it!

it definitely works for me. I use to have really really REALLY serious acne problems, after I read the book "Acne Cure" by By Terry J. Dubrow, Brenda D. Adderly, I pick out these products from the recommendations from the book and I am very happy with the results. It makes the zit/pimple smaller and smaller as you apply every night, it really improved my skin a lot, but in winter time, it's probably better to apply every other day so it does not over dry your skin, and I usually apply only at the area where I break out, not the whole face.

I'm one of those girls who will breakout no matter what cleanser or other face product I use. I had been using Target's brand of facial wipes to remove my face makeup at the end of the day. My skin began to break out after using the wipes for about a week. A good portion of the left side of my face had cystic acne and my cleansers did nothing to make them go away. I had heard good things about Zapzyt so I went ahead and bought it.
After using it for a couple of days, I noticed that my face started to look better. My sister even commented that the bumps were starting to disappear. The directions say to use this 1-3 times everyday. I used it 1-2 times daily. However, I noticed that my skin was getting dry around my nose, my mouth, my cheeks, between my eyebrows, and my chin. Heck, I was dry pretty much all over my face. I had to stop using the Zapzyt and apply loads of moisturizer to make the dryness go away.
Overall, I think this product works but I would only use it as a spot treatment. Otherwise, your face will become dry.

I'm actually reviewing PanOXYl acne treatment gel with 10% benzoyl peroxide. I bought this together with the cream face wash, also with 10% benzoyl peroxide. This has cleared up my inflammatory acne completely. My face is so smooth, and it hasn't been in many, many months. I'm used to the odd blackhead as my skin is acne-prone anyway, but in the last few months a breakout like you wouldn't believe. Huge, cystic, painful pimples all over my face that wouldn't got away. I was so frustrated and my confidence took quite a knocking down. Well, since starting on PanOXYl, my skin is absolutely clear. I hope that my acne scars will go away with time too, since my skin generally heals very well.

This is the only pimple cream I use. It works and it is not drying like other pimple creams.

Perfect spot treatment, or all over face treatment for acne. Every once in a while, I'll get a big whitehead, usually on my jawline, and just put this on it at night and I wake up zit-free. Just like that. Sometimes I put it on all over my face overnight and my skin is dramatically clearer. It gets rid of blackheads and whiteheads both. I like to put some Extra Virgin Olive Oil on my face in the morning after, and my skin feels glorious! As far as I know, you can only get this at Walmart. I was at a different grocery store recently and picked up a different brand of 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Gel, it looked basically the same as Zapzyt with the same ingredients, but for some reason it just didn't work as well. Didn't "get" into my skin like Zapzyt does. I won't stray away again. :^)

This is the best spot treatment on the market, and trust me, I know because I have tried nearly all of them. Obviously if you are allergic to benzoyl peroxide, don't try this treatment. I can only use benzoyl peroxide because I am allergic to salicylic acid and this does its job. I think when it comes to acne treatments, we tend to have unrealistic expectations (yes, I am guilty of this) and want the product to work immediately, with over night results. This won't completely do it's job in one night, but it's the fastest drugstore spot treatment I've found. This does work well in two or three days for existing pimples, but it is more effective when you apply it BEFORE the pimple completely emerges. I don't use this on my whole face, just on pimples that are there. I have super oily skin, and this doesn't dry me out or even make me flake. Pimples are gone in a couple of days and clear skin ensues! Yes!

I was shocked that this product works since it has such a cheap price. It works great for me! My skin is oily and this does not dry me out but I also use a moisturizer over it. I have been using it for approximately 2 weeks and, so far, I have had great results. If he results continue, I will continue to use and repurchase.
