First time I've ever tried this product because I seen it on Dr. Oz and a highly recommended product to control acne and blemishes. It's very very very strong and like myself, I'm have sensitive skin but at the same time very oily and acne prone skin. If you want to have blemishes and acne breakouts to diminish then this is definitely the product for you. But some of you will have a Love or Hate feel for PanOxyl but it's your call.

Effectiveness
At first it start off with drying your skin out and this is one of the stages that's suppose to happen while using PanOxyl. But you don't have to use it daily. I myself would skip using it during the day only because your not suppose to be in the sun with it (even though I wear sunscreen) I didn't want to take any chances with the sun damaging my skin. I used it 3 or 4 nights before going to bed. You will start to notice a difference with oiliness, breakouts and blemishes.

Ease of Application
The bar is thick and last for a long long time. It's best that you use it with your hand and not any brush or cloth only because the bar it self is strong and you don't wanna over scrub or be to abrasive to your skin.

Side Effects
You will have side effect but the side effects that your suppose to have with the product. I've used a lot of different acne treatment in my life and even though this was harsh on my skin it didn't burn my skin and have my face looking like I just got a chemical peel. It did state this one of the necessary duties that it will take while clearing and healing the face.

Immediacy
Since I didn't use it daily and that's was my choice, I didn't notice a difference in a couple of weeks but I did notice a HUGE difference in 4weeks and people around me did to. My skin looked and felt amazing. My blemishes were 30 percent less visible and some completely gone. I wasn't having any breakout in certain areas on my face that I would usually have periodicity and it made my face sooooo very smooth.

Comments about Stiefel PanOxyl Bar Maximum Strength Acne Wash:

I have used this product on and off. it works great and does control my acne but using it daily will cause skin to get irritated. so if your going to use this try to use it 4 days a week rather then daily.

This shows quick results.

Comments about Stiefel PanOxyl Bar Maximum Strength Acne Wash:

I used this when I needed a quick solution for my acne. I had an important photo shoot and my face was not ready for that. I started using this two weeks prior to the date of the photo shoot and by the time my big day came, my face was in much better shape. But once I stopped using it, my acne came back. So this might be a short term solution rather than a long term solution. It didn't have many side effects but you need to keep using for a long time to keep your face acne-free. I only used it for three weeks because I wasn't sure if it would be safe to keep using it.

Effectiveness
This is very effective in showing immediate results.

Ease of Application
This is easy to apply and also not that difficult to take off.

Convenience
This is very easy to use.

Side Effects
The only side effect is that this will not keep the results unless you keep using it.

Immediacy
This is the best short term solution I found for acne. You need to continue using it for the results to stay but if you need a quick turn around, try this product for a few weeks.

Works really good for acne

By 

from USA

Comments about Stiefel PanOxyl Bar Maximum Strength Acne Wash:

A few years ago when I had terrible acne I used this soap and it was really good. I had acne that was under the skin and hurt. I also had outright pimples. On top of that, I wore a lot of makeup. I used this soap and it really washed all my makeup off my face without being too harsh. My face also started to clear up and I noticed less break outs. Now, I still had flare ups but not nearly as much as before I started using this soap. I liked that it really got in there and washed my makeup off. This soap dried my pimples without drying my skin to the point of flaking. I also noticed the break outs under the skin were lessening to the point where I would only have one or two every now and then. Before, I had a lot and they never seemed to go away. If you have pimples or acne and need a good cleanser, this soap is great. I have sensitive skin and this soap did not seem to aggravate my skin, make it red or itchy. It became hard to find in my area so I eventually had to stop using it. I recommend giving this soap a try.

Best acne wash I have ever used!

By 

from USA

Comments about Stiefel PanOxyl Bar Maximum Strength Acne Wash:

I must say that this acne bar was the only bar that actually worked and healed my acne! I purchased this PanOxyl bar about two years back because i was suffering from moderate adult acne. Almost immediately i saw a difference. I was so happy. I started to feel confident and didn't have to worry about covering my acne with tons of makeup which was very time consuming. One day i ran out of the soap so went to my local pharmacy only to find out the most upsetting news! THE COMPANY DISCONTINUED THIS PRODUCT!! I was so upset and still am a year later. This was the only thing that has worked miracles for me. My acne is now back and i am on oral antibiotics and 2 different creams! Horrible! With this bar,.this was the only thing i had to use.

Side Effects
I had some redness in the beginning and then it quickly went away within a week.

Immediacy
This bar worked within days and my acne started to clear up very quickly!

Great wash, hard to find.

Comments about Stiefel PanOxyl Bar Maximum Strength Acne Wash:

You have to look at the ingredients and becareful not to overdose.

For the longest time, I did not pay attention to the ingreidents at all and I was doubling up on the products and it turns out my overdryness of the skin was contributed to the fact that I was using benzoyl peroxide on too much of a frequent basis.

This one here is a wash that contains 10% benzoyl peroxide.

It's not good for sensitive skin. You may get some rashes from drying. During times of stress, I use this product to help prevent any breakouts from occuring.

It's best if you are new to this product, to start with a lower concentration and then work your way to the 10%. This is something that is very strong, and definitely not good for beginners.

This wash foams, and so you are able to get a nice rinse after your face.

Always moisturize after and put sunscreen before going out

Immediacy
At first sign of pimples, can help clear it or stunt it's growth in a week or two

Product has worked for over 25 years.

Comments about Stiefel PanOxyl Bar Maximum Strength Acne Wash:

This product is very effective in clearning up acne in teenagers and adults. I used this when I was a teen, and now my teens use it.

Effectiveness
Not only is this soap good for your face, but you can also use it while bathing if you have acne on places other than your face. Unfortunatly that does happen, and this all in one soap is a great solution to clearing up your skin.

Ease of Application
This medicated remedy is the easiest to use. Just wash your face when you wake up and before you go to bed. Pat dry, and that's it. The soap rempoves the excess oil, so your pores are open and clean.

Convenience
The soap is a convienent way to take your medication with you. Just place the soap in a baggie or soap box. No one has to know it is medicated soap, because everyone washes their face.

Side Effects
If your skin is not oily, you should only wash once a day. It will cause a reddish tint to your face, like a sunburn. This the only sideeffect we have seen.

Immediacy
When used each day, your skin will clear up. This products also reduces the visibility of oil on your skin. My son has very oily skin, as did I, and this soap is great for those with oily skin.

Panoxyl Dries Acne and It improves

By 

from Wrightstown NJ

Comments about Stiefel PanOxyl Bar Maximum Strength Acne Wash:

As everyone knows , acne can be seriously hard to get rid of. Back acne is especially difficult as your back is constantly rubbing on your clothes My son has tried every product imaginable and Panoxyl is the only one that works It dries the acne out and helps it disappear It is very drying though so you may have to moisturize a bit It has the same ingredients in it as the acne wash or spray you get at the dermatologist office and works just as well or even better. There is no need to take antibiotics or use a harsh chemical. The only downfall is that sometimes it can be hard to find in the stores and that is probably because it works so well that everyone buys it. When I see it , I ususally buy a couple of them. It is a little pricey but not compared to a doctors visit or to wasting a lot of money of body washes for acne and other products that end up not working. I would recommend this for anyone to at least try, it works here and could work for you.

Effectiveness
very good, a bit drying.

Ease of Application
simple

Convenience
very covenient

Side Effects
dry skin

Worth a Try

By 

from Alexandria, VA

Comments about Stiefel PanOxyl Bar Maximum Strength Acne Wash:

When I first tried this product it was recommended to me by my dermatologist. He stated that if used properly then the product will acutely work. And so I did. At first I used it twice a day, which started to dry out my skin a little bit. I reduced the dosage to once a day at night, and I noticed some improvement. I also used this product in the shower on my back and chest and was able to get rid of minor acne. The salic acid in the soap worked great and started clearing up my skin. I eventually stopped using it, and noticied that I started breaking out again...not as much though.. I decided to buy another bar to use every so often...and this also proved beneficial. Like any good medicine if used properly, you get the outcome you desire. Also, make sure you moisturizer since it may make your skin a bit dry. Overall i would have to say this is a great product and would recommend it to those who may have a minor acne problem.
