I used the Clearasil brand 10% benzoyl peroxide "vanishing" cream for years during my high school career.

Whenever I would get a few pimples, I'd dab it on at night and sometimes also use a tiny amount in the morning if the blemish hadn't shrunk to an acceptable level.

I could definitely feel that the cream dried my skin out and I quickly learned to not spread it out over my entire face.

If I used too much and my face became overly dry, I would help bring it back to normal with some Neutrogena SPF 15 facial moisturizer or the Cetaphil Lotion.

Another problem I experienced was that if I used too much, or used it too often, I would experience some redness, irritation, itching and even some peeling occasionally.

A good method I learned over the years to keep the Clearasil Benzoyl Peroxide vanishing cream from drying out my skin was to mix it with a tiny bit of the Neutrogena or Cetaphil moisturizer.

As long as I remembered to only use a very small amount on each pimple, this cream worked well for clearing up my breakouts quicker.

The Clearasil Daily Face Wash did a good job of removing all of the oil from my skin when I used it in the shower, but I found that using a product with salicylic acid caused too much irritation when used in combination with the benzoyl peroxide vanishing cream.

I found that my skin looked the best when I used a very gentle facial cleanser such as the Cetaphil face wash and then only used the Clearasil benzoyl peroxide vanishing cream as a spot treatment on individual blemishes.
