PanOxyl Acne Treatment Wash, Oil Control Moisturizer and Overnight Spot Patches Review and Results

I had been quietly battling acne for the past few months and I could never figure out what exactly is causing me to breakout sporadically. Sometimes I felt its my hair products, so I changed those and nothing happened. Then I thought it could be my hormones, can't do much about that. Then I figured its my dirty makeup brushes and washing them regularly did not impact my random acne all over my face. It's frustrating to tackle acne when you are a grown up, as its often associated with teen years. I was at my lowest when I found out about PanOxyl's acne solutions. These products are designed to fight acne causing bacteria deep within the pores. I am so happy that within a month of using it my acne has subsided significantly. I still breakout but it doesn't get as nasty as it used to. 
More on PanOxyl and my skin progress in today's blog!

PanOxyl Acne Wash - Benzoyl Peroxide Cream 4%

This is the most gentle acne face wash I have ever used.  Its formulated with 4% benzoyl peroxide which is proven to combat acne causing bacteria. This acne wash targets bacteria deep within pores, and as I experienced it first hand, it stops acne from growing and spreading further. 
PanOxyl Acne Wash can be used on face and body and the pH balanced formula helps in preventing flakiness and dryness, which is common occurrence when using any skin products with active ingredients. Since I live in Calgary, where the weather is generally dry, my skin almost always feels a bit dry and there is a need to moisturize a little more but while using this acne wash, I did not feel excessive dryness or a need to layer up on moisturizer. 
I use this on my face once a day and preferably at night time. I tried using it more than once a day on areas that seemed to have more clusters of acne but my skin couldn't handle it well. So for me washing my face once, at night, works best with this acne wash and I have had much clearer and better looking skin since using it nightly. 
Overall, this is a great product which works wonders for my skin. My acne has stopped in its tracks, however, I do have some scarring and acne marks but nothing 3D is popping on my skin that can't be covered with a bit of concealer.

PanOxyl Oil Control Moisturizer with SPF 30

This lightweight, oil control moisturizer by PanOxyl is formulated with hyaluronic acid and offers SPF 30 mineral sunscreen. Wearing a sunscreen is absolutely necessary whenever we use actives such as benzoyl peroxide or retinols and I am happy that this light weight and non greasy sunscreen provides a good SPF coverage during the day time. My only concern is the white cast that comes with the sunscreen which can be covered with makeup but on its own, its really not the look for me.  
Overall, this is a good moisturizer to protect the skin from UV rays after using the PanOxyl Acne Wash with 4% Benzoyl Peroxide. Its non irritating and works well with acne ridden skin which can feel itchy at times. This sunscreen provides the moisturization needed after using the PanOxyl Acne Wash. 
PanOxyl Overnight Spot Patches
I had high expectations from this product because it reminded me of acne patches I have used in the past and the PanOxyl Overnight Spot Patches are available at less than half the price of those. So, the idea is the same as other acne patches that we have to apply it to the pimple and let it stay on skin overnight and it is suppose to dry out the pimple or if the pimple is already oozing (yuck) it would absorb and stop it from spreading. 
I used it a couple of times so far as the PanOxyl Acne Wash is truly doing wonders for me. The first time I used it was on a really painful pimple that had just started to grow. I applied this patch on the pimple in hopes that it would dry out the next morning. As you can see in the pictures below it did seem to slightly shrink the pimple but it took few days of using the PanOxyl Acne Wash to completely get rid of that pimple. I feel that this is a great way to protect yourself from the spread of acne and it works best in combination with the PanOxyl Acne Wash and the PanOxyl Oil Control Moisturizer.
Overall, I am quite pleased PanOxyl Acne solutions and as you can see in the pictures above, it has greatly reduced the size of my acne and eliminated it completely. I am using vitamin C products to overcome scarring, however, I am so happy that I have no more of those painful pimples popping up all over my face. The price point on these products makes them so affordable and accessible to everyone battling acne and if you are like me, and you can't seem to figure out what to do, I would recommend giving PanOxyl a try and see it for yourself. They are available at Walmart, London Drugs, Recall, Sobeys and Amazon.ca
