Acnecide 5% Gel is a medicinal cream which treats acne and spots while helping prevent future flare-ups. The active ingredient, benzoyl peroxide, works by killing almost all the bacteria responsible for causing your spots. Acnecide also helps absorb excess oil and nourishes the skin with glycerine – a natural moisturiser.
Acnecide 5% gel is designed for face acne. To treat acne on the body, try Acnecide 5% Wash.
This gel should be applied directly on the sight of the acne. Do not apply it excessively as this may cause irritation. After applying the gel for the first time, you may feel a mild burning sensation, reddening skin, or peeling. This is normal and will lessen after several days of use. Speak to your doctor if these symptoms worsen.
Avoid using this gel in direct sunlight or under sunlamps, as it increases the skin’s sensitivity to the sun.

This product cleared up my (admittedly mild) acne overnight, it can cause some temporary dryness etc if used too heavily, but that's a mild trade off against the benefits. It really works well and I'd certainly recommend it.
Ive suffered from acne since my early teens and unfortunately it didnt get any better In my 20s or now 30s. Ive tried a lot of different items over the years but they had failed to make any difference. I stumbled accross acnecide online and after reading the review thought Id try it out. After day one I could feel a different in the texture of my skin and how soft it felt just after one use. After a few days I had notice the spots and redness was fading but I was left with dry patched. I started to just use the gel at night but still use the wash twice daily and Its most been around the 2 week mark and the dryness has almost gone along with the redness and that spots. Im so pleased with this product. Im going to see how well it works for the rest if the month as hormones might make a difference. If all is great I will be sure to but this stuff in bulk :)
