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.
