Hi guys.. went to the doctor about my skin about 3 months ago - i'm 22 and totally over having 'teenage' acne now and asked them to give me something which actually worked. i started off with the 5% gel which i did find good; it got rid of the majority of my under-the-skin acne which was really bugging me, but it didn't get rid of it all. i went back to the doctor last week who recommended increasing the aquagel to 10% and i'm pleased to say that i actually think this stuff is finally working on me! to be fair, it might be because i've only just increased the percentage and i'm not sure about long-term use, but i really do think that this is fab!!
i've never found that my skin became really sore/red after use, however it does make your skin VERY dry - which to me is an added bonus because my skin is so oily! however - if you do get very dry patches, i've found that applying a little bit of vaseline to the area and rubbing softly with a tissue helps to remove the dry 'patch', and it's all good!
hope this helps! x x x
p.s. to those who said that they didn't realise that bleach was in the product.. surely the word 'peroxide' in the title gives you a little hint? :)
