Description

Clear, treat and prevent even the worst breakouts with PanOxyl 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Maximum Strength Acne Foaming Wash. This cleanser for acne-prone skin can be used on both the face and body. PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash contains the highest concentration of benzoyl peroxide available without a prescription. This powerful daily cleanser starts working quickly to clear inflammatory acne and kills over 99% of acne-causing bacteria in 15 seconds.* Acne treatments can be harsh and drying to skin, so PanOxyl’s benzoyl peroxide washes contain moisturizers to combat dryness. 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. Reveal your best-looking skin with PanOxyl Acne Solutions. *Independent laboratory study, data on file.

submitted by Mi - 3 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.

The only facewash to completely eliminate my fungal acne, cystic, and those tiny little ones deep under the skin. The only con is that this bleaches anything it touches so be cautious but the risk is worth the reward.

I bought this for my teen son and not only did he not like the smell, it really didn't do anything for his acne. I know that sometimes things can get worse before they get better but he used the whole bottle and it stayed worse. Save your money and try something else.

I’ve been using this for a little over a month and now swear by it ! Within the first 3 uses my acne started to disappear ! IM OBSESSED lol .. I only use it at night and go in with a moisturizer after as it is a bit drying. In my opinion there isn’t a smell to it which I like. I now have my family and friends using it and it’s also working for them !

I've used it on my face as a mask where I let it sit for a few minutes, but my preferred way to use this is as a spot treatment. Is it too strong to sit on my face for long periods of time and won't it stain my bedding? Yes and yes, but worth it. Shrinks pimples in like two days.

I've used this cleanser for a year and have noticed that it helps my acne not flare up as much. I have extreamly acne prone skin, and this is one of the few products that have made a difference in my skin. It is slightly drying, as the packaging states, but I put a hydrayting moisturizer over it.

This stuff helps with acne on my upper thighs and back area—especially in the humid climate I live in. Also noticed less body odor from my armpits and feet. I don’t find this formula drying at all. I only use 3x a week and leave on for 3 minutes. After showers, I use my moisturizer.

I saw this online decided to try it out. I also than searched it on tik tok. It’s a big thing! So far so it’s been about a week. I can say this product has cleared active acne. I see a big difference. This product does lighten skin. At least on my face. So I’m excited to see how it helps my hyperpigmentations from acne.

Favorite face wash, i am very sensitive!! does the job without the harsh scents and chemicals. It does not make your skin feel stripped like other foamy face washes. Ive been using this for 3 years. Finish off my skin routine with toner, jojoba oil, moisturizer and sunscreen.
