Beauty Review: PanOxyl

As someone who loves beauty products and possibly leans toward a product hoarder, I always love trying new skin treatments.  I feel that a clear complexion is the base to all other beauty and can make you feel more confident.  Taking care of my skin and making sure that it is healthy has always been a top priority for me.  Recently I have been using two products from PanOxyl that I love.  Of PanOxyl the company says, it is "a dermatologist-recommended acne management system that combines Benzoyl Peroxide with soothing and hydrating ingredients like lactic acid and mineral oil to eliminate skin irritation. It was formerly available by prescription-only, but now is sold in drugstores nationwide."  I have incorporated both the PanOxyl 10% Foaming Acne Wash and PanOxyl 3% Advanced Acne Spot Treatment into my routine and am very happy with the results.

PanOxyl 10% Foaming Acne Wash
This strong cleanser is packed with 10% Benzoyl Peroxide to fight acne on your face, chest, and back. It contains the highest amount of Benzoyl Peroxide available without a prescription.  It goes deep into your pores to not only clear up existing blemishes, but to prevent new ones from forming. 

When I first got this I used it every night to wash my face, however after about 3 days I noticed my skin got very dry, so I took a break from using it for a while.  My skin is combination, but leans toward the dry side, which is why I think that my face got dried out by the wash.  With a little experimenting I learned that using the wash every few days (switching it out with a gentle cleanser on the in between days) is the best for me, as it does not dry my skin out then.  I especially like using this when I am having a breakout because it really does help to clear it up with just one wash.

While I was taking a break from washing my face with this cleanser I decided to try it on my chest and back as I do get acne on both of those areas (most of the time even more then my face!).  I have been really happy with the results of using this on my body as it has helped to keep both my chest and back clear.  The skin on my chest is the hardest to get control of, but this cleanser has worked wonders on it.

I really recommend picking up the PanOxyl 10% Foaming Acne Wash (and I promise I mean it!).  If you have dry to combination skin, I would only use it once every few days, and for the girls with oily skin this would be great for every day use.  Additionally for anyone who is experiencing stubborn body acne you will love how well this works to get your skin cleared up.

3% Advanced Acne Spot Treatment
This product is meant to spot treat acne after cleansing your skin.  It is a maximum strength product designed to kill the acne causing bacteria on existing pimples.  Although is it quite powerful it is still gentle on the skin and safe for use on the face, chest, and back.

This tiny tube is seriously a miracle worker for me.  At night after I've washed my face I dab a small amount of this onto any blemishes or starts of blemishes that I may have on my face or chest, and then head to bed.  The next morning when I wake up the blemishes have shrunk and are almost entirely gone.  For the last few years I hadn't really been using spot treatments for blemishes and am sorry I didn't find this sooner.  It doesn't dry out my skin like ones I've used in the past, and it works very quickly.

I have to say that overall I am very pleased with the way PanOxyl's products work.  They definitely deliver what they promise and have helped to clear up my skin.  I would recommend the two products to anyone suffering from acne, and encourage you to give them a try.  The lovely people over at PanOxyl want you to try their products too and are giving away a 3% Advanced Acne Spot Treatment and 10% Foaming Acne Wash to one lucky reader.  Enter below for your chance to win!
