Have used Benzac products for 15 years and stand by this product 100%. Even after taking the plunge with accutane medication, I still keep this product in the bathroom cabinet in case of breakouts. It’s not a cure but it kills acne bacteria, which unfortunately no product can get rid of 100%.

I love using the Benzac wash because you get the benefits of the very …

When my acne was at its worst in my mid twenties (painful large cysts on my jawline, smaller breakouts on my cheek and jaw) this (in combination with two-week acne peels) was the only thing (after a long line of products) that worked. It takes a day or 2 for everything to stop feeling sore and inflamed, and another week or so and everything is 90% under control.
Yes it is super drying and …

I bought this Benzac AC wash 5%) as a last resort for my back acne and thought if this didn't work I would then seek professional help. All I can say is, I am so glad I stuck it out and persisted with this product. The first few weeks of using this product I noticed my back acne clearing up slightly with fewer new breakouts everyday. But there were still at least one or two new pimples …Read more

I've been using this every morning for about a month now, and it hasn't done anything for my acne. It makes my skin feel dry and super tight, so that I can't wear my Natio tinted moisturizer (very creamy and moisturizer) because my skin just sucks the moisturizer right up, leaving streaked, patchy pigment on top of my skin.
So far I haven't had any flaking or peeling …

Been using for about 2 weeks. Agree with all the other points that it is very drying, but it is clearing up my face so nicely. Will update again a month out, and again after that. After years of trying wacky "homemade" stuff, and everything in the skincare aisle of SDM, I can't understand why I didn't seek out something like this sooner. Partially covered on my Blue Cross …Read more

This product was recommended by my doctor to be used in conjunction with topical antibiotic gel to treat some mild acne.

I have been using this for about a week and a half - twice daily (morning and night). I mix it with my Aveeno cleanser, gently rub it on to my face, leave it on for 30 seconds and then rinse off (as per the instructions). I then apply the antibiotic gel and then my …

My doctor recommended this to me recently so I haven't been using it for long (about 2-3 weeks now) and I'm also on acne medication. My skin looks a lot clearer due to the lightening of my blemishes around my cheeks thanks to the benzoyl peroxide, however, it has done very little in regards to my acne. I no longer have as many tiny pimples on my face but rather large ones, not many …Read more

I've used Benzac on-and-off for years, usually in a state of desperation when my acne gets out of control. I've always had problem skin. My parents and teachers told me I'd grow out of it. I didn't. The plus side of having oily skin is that I still look very young; the downside is this sense of "if only I could put my best foot forward". I tend to use Benzac for …Read more

I love this stuff!
I began to break out really bad earlier this month. My garnier 3 in 1 didn't help, so I found my proactiv and gave it another go, but it didn't have an effect either. I then tried a neutrogena cleaser in soap bar form. Within 12 hours, I had MORE pimples. By then, I was pretty frustrated. Then, out of the blue, I remembered seeing a skin care range called Benzac …
