      Benzoyl Peroxide became a bitter part of my pimple-stricken days in seeking for a potent solution against acne. I can vividly remember it was one of the things I used to desperately treat my pimples some time last year. I scoured the internet which led me to many forums online. After reading people’s testimonials, I concluded that a vast majority of people use Benzoyl Peroxide for acne.

      Following the advice from people, I started using Panoxyl with a mild 2.5 % concentration as I gradually introduce this to my face. I was well aware of the bad initial reactions that can happen once I use this for the first time. It


      carries a warning about causing irritation and stinging, but I thought this would only occur for the first time of use. I followed instructions religiously with the hope of ending my acne.

      I applied this acnegel at night before going to sleep. It feels mildly discomforting because of the slight yet burning sensation as if my face was tingling in pain. I insisted on using BP because it says the prickly sensation is normal and means that it’s working

With regard to treating my pimples, I see some raised lesions get shrunken, but my skin isn’t getting any better. Soon enough, more pimples keep showing up, there was redness and peeling. I felt like my face was getting a brutal facial treatment. I had to stop right there eventhough the treatment regimen strongly advised to continue using for 3 to 6 months progressively to see positive changes (that’s quite a long mile).

        To me, Benzoyl Peroxide is a very heavy anti-acne substance. Eventhough I wasn’t able to prove its cumulative efficacy, I was

        afraid that the persistent irritation might mean that I’m hypersensitive to BP. This product may have worked for others, but certainly not for me. After that experience, I learned people’s general perception of something cannot be absolute. Results can vary from person to person.

        I rate this product 3 for all the pain it had caused me. And for some, who are thinking of using it, make sure you have a high tolerance for pain (especially on face). Perhaps, this product can work only for cunning people who are willing to see it to the very end.
