Complicated skincare routines? No thanks. PanOxyl Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Foaming Wash clears and treats existing breakouts and helps prevent new zits from forming in one step. Acne is caused by three things clogging pores: dead skin cells, excess oils and acne-causing bacteria. This powerful, anti-bacterial cleansing wash breaks the acne cycle by unclogging pores and killing acne-causing bacteria. When used daily, this wash helps to prevent new pimples from forming. PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash can be used to treat acne on the face, chest and back. Use in the shower or at the sink, in the morning to get ready for the day or at night before bed. To use, wet the area to be cleansed. Apply acne wash and gently massage the area for 1-2 minutes. Use at the sink or in the shower and rinse thoroughly after application for best results. Pat dry. PanOxyl 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Foaming Wash is pH balanced, paraben free, phthalate free, and contains no added fragrances. It works great for acne-prone and oily skin. Dermatologists recommend PanOxyl benzoyl peroxide acne washes because of their proven results over the last 45 years. To help maintain a clear complexion and help eliminate active blemishes, pair with PanOxyl PM Overnight Spot Patches. Always wear sunscreen when using a benzoyl peroxide acne treatment. For oily skin, apply PanOxyl AM Oil Control Moisturizer for gentle, hydrating mineral sunscreen that mattifies.

submitted by Mi - 2 years ago
  • A: PanOxyl acne washes contain benzoyl peroxide, which works to kill acne causing bacteria and helps prevent future breakouts from forming. Our washes can be used to treat acne on the face, chest and back. We offer acne washes containing benzoyl peroxide in 4% and 10% concentration levels so you can customize your routine based on your skin’s needs. Avoid contact with the eyes, lips and mouth. Skin irritation and dryness is more likely to occur if you use another topical medication at the same time. If irritation occurs, only use one topical acne medication at a time. If you have any concerns about a potential reaction, we recommend you consult your healthcare provider.

OMG THIS IS LIFE CHANGING! If you have prone acne skin? This is for you! You struggle with hyperpigmentation and scars? This is for you! I rotate between this and Urban Skin RX, BUT THIS PRODUCT CLEARED MY SKIN! Use morning and night cause it works! It does smell like bleach water and it doesn’t lather up in foam BUT that doesn’t mean it’s not working because I saw results in like a week!

Best and most affordable product to fight against out of no where acne on dry and dehydrated skin type. Clearer skin results and no need for pimple patches. Double cleanse so it won’t dry your skin. Note that it will discolor your clothes/ towels and it smells like public swimming pools/ water parks.

This has been a complete surprise. I have providing spent thousands on different products, treatments, etc and this beats any of those easily. I used to have random pop up bumps, and dark marks, hyperpigmentation, etc. I’ve only been using for a couple of weeks on my face and body, and it’s been a big difference so far. My texture is now baby soft. I’ve noticeably achieved glowing skin. GET IT

I am in my mid 40s, and have developed pretty significant face and body acne due to the hormonal changes of perimenopause. This is the third product I have tried for body acne, but the first with benzoyl peroxide. I haven’t been using it very long, but my body acne is already responding to it. I have fewer blemishes, and they seem to come to a head quickly (purging, common with new products), and then begin to heal. I use it in the shower every other day, and follow up with Dove Winter Care body wash, which is super moisturizing. I haven’t had excessive dryness, and my sensitive skin hasn’t reacted. I have only used it twice on my face, but so far no reactions. Yes, it can bleach fabrics, but I only use it in the shower where I can rinse it off really well. Highly recommended!

Skin was noticeably clearer!

TheGoodMother5 - 1 month ago
originally posted on Home Tester Club
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] There was a noticeable difference within the 1st 2 weeks in the amount & size of acne, compared to past products I've used. The longer I used the foaming face wash, the clearer my skin became, without losing its effectiveness. I was surprised that my skin didn't dry out or get irritated like it has with other acne products, eventhough I my face was washed twice daily. It left my skin feeling very clean & me so excited that additional products weren't necessary. Using this one foaming face wash makes my cleansing routine A LOT shorter while providing better benefits than traditional acne cleaners.

I’m gonna be completely honest that I wasn’t sure if this was gonna work for me or not as I don’t normally break up with acne. I’ve always gotten hormonal acne that would come around the time of menstruation and then go away but lately it’s been sticking around longer. I’ve been using this for the last two weeks which I showed a photo of before and then as of today and it literally has cleared up my face so much! It’s healing all my acne scars, and I’m going to keep using it here on out. Very impressed!!

I had purchased this for the first time. I usually use the corsx pimple patches. Those are amazing but they are about 20$ for 90 patches.. I thought to give these a try they honestly don’t get much gung out at all which is kinda disappointing given my old pimple patches are extremely efficient. I would say skip this options if your thinking of getting it

So I used this when I was in my early 20s and struggling with acne and I remember it being good but nothing spectacular. Flash forward to my mid 30s I was struggling with cystic acne and flare ups. I was so frustrated because here I am trying to work on anti aging skin care and I’m still dealing with acne. I read benzoyl peroxide was good for cystic acne in mid 30s due to hormonal changes. I am so happy I did! Within 2 days my skin was clear and glowing! What?! It is a bit drying so find a moisturizer good for you and your skin type. My skin has been taking well to Vanicream. I’ll be leaving a review for that soon.

Good for acne, non-irritating, and works better than any deodorant when used under armpits. This stuff is awesome! Let it sit for a minute or two wherever you use it. Can be drying. Unscented, but smells mildly chemical-ly like a faint chlorine scent.

If you have any type of acne on your body. Butt cheeks inner thighs any of that. I had already read about using this and started prior to seeing a dermatologist. It worked. Then when I actually saw one. First thing he recommended. PAN OXYL. It definitely is recommended and SUGGESTED by dermatologist and works very well. Check it out. The hydrogen peroxide dries out any blemishes and works very fast within days.
