Doctor recommended for black heads – seeing positive results

My dermatologist recommended a mild 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide Wash (any brand) for treating blackheads. There are a lot of stronger Benzoyl Peroxide options, but I did not find a lot options for the 2.5% wash so I went with Jan Marini wash even though it seemed a bit pricey.I have been using it for over a month. I use it once a day. It does not irritate my skin and I am beginning to see positive results.I am attaching a collage of three photos (which can be located following “customer photos” link under the main photo. The bottle is fairly large, photo #2 show it next to the ruler – it is 5 inches tall not measuring the cap. Photo#1 shows the top without the cap, this small hole allows you to use in small amount so it will last. Photo #3 shows the wash in my hand – the content is cream-like substance.Directions from the back of the package:✔ Apply a small amount (about the size of a quarter) to the face. Work into a lather.✔ Gently remove with a wash cloth and lukewarm water.✔ Splash face with lukewarm water. Pat dry.✔ Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a physician.✔ If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.✔ If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a physician.Active Ingredients:—————————–➨ Benzoyl Peroxide-2.5%Inactive Ingredients:—————————–➨ Water (Aqua), Sorbitol, Propylene Glycol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Carbomer, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, Disodium EDTAOverall, I am pleased with the effects.Ali Julia review

AMAZON MADE AN ERROR IN THE DESCRIPTION!!! This is a wash/cleanser, which is not mentioned at all. The title only describes this product as "Jan Marini Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%-8 oz". I was searching for a benzoyl peroxide leave-on treatment. I shopped on my phone, and could not see the tiny writing on the bottle in the small photo of the product. My review is against the description, not against the product, which i have not used.

This feels like a lotion not a wash

This is creamy and oily going on the face but rinses clean. I thought it was a lotion at first and realized that it said "wash" on the bottle. This box and bottle needs instructions. Why are there no instructions. I know how to wash my face BUT I still want instructions. This is costly compared to the Avon wash I usually get. I get the same results from both.

Replacement for another item

This is a replacement for a benzoyl peroxide bar that is no longer available. Works ok, but not as good as the bar. pretty good substitute for the bar.

Best acne product ever!

My daughters and I all suffer from acne. I am 46 years old and I still need to use an acne wash morning and night. We swear by this product. Never go anywhere without it. I have recommended it to friends, family and teenagers. Works on all types of skin with no drying. I’ve been using it for 4 years. Great price at Amazon.

Like rubbing conditioner on the face + pore clogging ingredients

This stuff is terrible! I made the mistake of buying this and the bioglycolic cleanser and I regret wasting my money. If you are prone to acne like me, look at the ingredients. Cetly and Stearyl alcohol are listed a “2” on the comedogenic ingredients list. Yeah, a “2” isn’t terrible based on the scale of 0 to 5, but considering these two ingredients are two of the first four ingredients of this product it scares me. Having said that, I tried to ignore it thinking, “they are only a 2 on the scale”, but I kept breaking out. Furthermore, it literally feels like rubbing your hair conditioner all over your face when your using this product, your skin does not feel clean but kind of greasy like a slime layer is left behind. I finally went back to my staple BP cleanser which is Equate purifying cleanser (from Walmart) which I LOVE. The Equate cleanser is SO much better and much cheaper at less than $5.00 a bottle. The Equate cleanser does not foam much like this Jan Marinini stuff, but it at least leaves my skin feeling clean and not greasy.
