$3.99 (& check CVS for specials/coupons) instead of brand products that are 5.99. Works well and is pretty strong. I use this 3x a week on my nose, chin, forehead and cheeks, applied with a q-tip. Be sure to wear old PJs to bed due to bleaching, and only use a ratty old towel to dry your face. I wish this stuff didn't bleach :/

I alternate using this with CVS's tinted sulphur treatment which I find to be less drying and more suitable for day (the BP treatment can turn white if you layer on too much).

I don't find it works well with moisturizer (peels & flakes) so I usually apply it after using a SA toner like Clean & Clear.

Works so well on blackheads if you put it on in a regular basis (few times a week, even when you don't have any other issues). If I stop, they come back. Sometimes I alternate the BP with an SA gel if I need the exfoliation.
