Honest reviews



It DID do a very good job of stripping my face of everything (including my face’s essential oils), but as a result of the 10% Benzoyl Peroxide, it left my skin very very dry, which I would just follow-up with a moisturizer. I can’t say that it did anything for my acne either. Recently I have gone all-natural in terms of facial care, and I am was wild about all the chemicals I was using on my face with this product, so, consequently, I had to ditch this. Maybe it will work for you, but it just didn’t work for me.

Great BP face wash

I’ve found salicylic acid to be pretty useless for treating my mild inflammatory acne so I was delighted to finally stumble across Oxy Face Wash in the store one day. I bought it solely because it was the only face wash I could find with benzoyl peroxide as the active ingredient, and it has turned out to be a great product. Though it hasn’t completely eliminated my acne, it has definitely reduced the frequency and severity of my breakouts.The wash is a thin white liquid with a kind of runny consistency, but since it lathers up and is easy to apply I don’t consider that a problem. In fact, the watery texture makes it much easier to rinse off than other washes I’ve tried, such asClean & Clear Cleanserwhich is more paste-like. I also appreciate that it doesn’t really have any odor or perfume.I noticed that some reviewers mentioned it making their faces dry, but I’ve actually found this to be the least drying treatment out of all the BP products I’ve tried. I put it on in the shower every morning and my face always feels clean and soft after rinsing it off. It’s important to keep in mind that this is the “maximum” benzoyl peroxide dose so if you haven’t been using BP on your skin before you may want to start out with a 2% treatment or just use this every other day to let your skin acclimate and avoid irritation and peeling. Additionally, using a non-greasy moisturizer is a critical part of any acne treatment regimen, and that will of course also help with dryness if it occurs.As with any BP treatment, this stuff WILL bleach everything it touches, including towels and clothing. Even when I went to great lengths to avoid using colored towels around my face, the residue from my fingers was enough to discolor them. If this is something you care about then you should probably just use white towels.

Too watery

Was suggested to use this product. I didn’t like the fact that this face wash is too watery. I wish it was a little thicker so that it doesn’t drip to the neck and chest area when applied to the face. Instead I used clean&clear version which has 5% Benzyl Peroxide and it also exfoliates.

Good, Not a Miracle Worker

I have mild to moderate acne. While it isn’t terrible, it is stubborn to treatment. Many dermatologist visits have yielded nothing but peeled skin and frustration. I have tried almost every over the counter face wash in the acne aisle. I stumbled upon Oxy when I ran out of Clearasil face wash (which did nothing for me), and it was reasonably priced, so I picked it up. The consistency of this face wash is very watery – almost milky. It takes a little getting used to because it doesn’t really lather up very much, which is a sign that it doesn’t have added chemicals. It did not sting, and was pleasant enough to wash with. It easily rinsed off and I did not notice any bleaching of hair or towels. Initially, this made my skin very dry and I needed to use a much thicker moisturizer, but the results have definitely been worth it. While my acne is still present, it is reduced, and the overall tone of my skin looks better. The dryness has subsided, and I will continue to use this face wash in the hopes that it continues working even better with time. I would recommend this to anyone, but do find a thick, non-comodogenic moisturizer for afterwards!

Works great for acne

I’m almost 30 and still have Acne like I’m 13. I also have generally oily skin, that is sensitive. I’ve been trying various washes over the past fews years, and so far this is the best I’ve come across. It’s not that harsh on my skin, doesn’t leave it overly red, and doesn’t effect it’s sensitivity afterwards. It does a GREAT job at getting rid of acne building that’s already there, and actually preventing it. I can occasionally go a day or so without a shower, and no longer worry about the previously inevitable breakout as a result. This is the same thing as which I bought when I ran out of my first bottle. After 6 months I’m still very impressed with this product and will continue to use. I’m sure people will react differently to different products, so if you’re looking for a good daily wash for acne, I’d definitely give this one a shot!

Better than ProActiv

For years, I used ProActiv. However, over time, it has become less effective in clearing my skin. And, I recently developed terrible acne along my jawline. I tried several other acne cleansers but nothing seemed to really work. So, I decided to try Oxy. It cleared my skin in less than three days! I love it. And, it is much cheaper than ProActiv! Warning: this is NOT for anyone with sensitive skin.
