Benzaderm Wash Works to an extent
Posted 8/13/2012 by Paul Murillo
I've been using the Benzaderm wash for a about 2 1/2 months now and I must say that the face washer works TO AN EXTENT!!! Before I used the wash, I had my face full of acne, particularly on my forehead (because of the oils secreted from my front hair onto my skin, thus clogging my pores) and on my nose and chin ( where the oil glands are). I must say that the Benzaderm wash got rid of HALF the acne. At first, I used it twice a day but that started to dry and peel my face so instead, I used it once a day. After my face got used to it, i started applying it twice a day and this time, my face didn't dry it. I suppose this is because my body needed time to get used to a new medication ( or should i say face wash). DO AS I DID, USE IT ONCE FOR THE FIRST MONTH, THEN TWICE!. When I did that, my acne went away, but honestly, not all of it was gone. It got rid of the major acne marks and zits/pimples but there was still some minor acne left ( out of -10, I'd say a 3 or 4). I got frustrated by this, but kept applying it twice daily for the next month ( now 2 months). I guess that your skin gets used to it after a while and starts to adapt to the medication because there was a pausing point of progression with getting rid of the acne. Instead of doing nothing, I used another face cleanser, called Facial Toner, after the Benzaderm Wash twice daily too and i noticed that this was the ABSOLUTE BEST MIX for acne and got rid of it over the course of approximately 1 1/2 - 2 weeks. At this point, 2 and a half months have gone by ( the entire summer, BTW, my summer resolution was to get rid of acne and ITS GONE NOW :) )Today, I still use both products to prevent new acne or breakouts from coming back. School is back in session at this point and everyone, especially girls ;) wonder how I got rid of acne so fast without any marks or scars on me! Getting rid of acne has truly raised my self-confidence, caused me to be happier, and made me less shy.
