Has anyone had any experiences using 5% benzyol peroxide for their acne/ scarring?
How many weeks until you started noticing some improvement? Thanks

Hello, I use this cream and it does help. But for improvement you must also use this together with moisturizer and remember not to touch your face, pop pimples and drink a lot of water.

don't listen to danvista2984

Yes I agree that you should use with a moisturiser for it to be effective. But drinking water won't help or cure acne and it's not proven, but it's good to stay hydrated anyway.
Don't pop pimples at all. That's how you get scars and they're much harder to get rid of and you're transferring the bacteria from your hands on to your face.

Unfortunately it's never really helped my acne because I have to use so little so as to avoid an eczema flare-up. I hope it works for you. Make sure you use sunscreen because it makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight, and also make sure to keep your skin moisturised as it can make your skin dry/itchy/irritated.

Thank you for your advice I've been using it for about a month and I haven't noticed any changes but strangely it hasn't made my eczema flare up (yet)
