Anti-Acne Products Review: Defensil VS Panoxyl

I've been suffering from SEVERE ACNE this few months and until this moment it's still all over my face. I tried almost all anti-acne products but still none of them really works.
So for those who have the same problem as mine and plan to purchase Defensil or Panoxyl. Here's my review on them:
Let's start off with Defensil:
Defensil has two line of products one is the BAR SOAP which costs roughly around PHP35 @ Watson's.

As stated in the box, it should ONLY be washed on affected areas.

PROS:
1) Cheap and Affordable
2) Pocket size which is easy to carry around
3) No unpleasant smell
4) Does NOT dries your skin


CONS:
1) No significant effect on healing pimples/acne
2) Even though its only PHP35 but if it doesn't do what it claims to do its still a waste of money

Another line of Defensil is the Defensil Cream:
(I'll upload the pic later)
-It's basically a lotion cream in a tube which claims to prevent breakouts.

PROS:
- Non greasy, easy to apply
- No unpleasant smell

CONS:
- PHP188 that claims to ONLY prevent pimples is quite pricey
- No significant effect in terms of preventing breakouts, I still got pimple even using this cream.

Next is the ever famous PANOXYL:

There are 3 types of PANOXYL ointment/gel:
2.5%- white/blackheads
5%- mild acne/pimples
10%- severe acne/pimples

I bought the 2.5% cuz' I want to start in low dosage as I don't want my skin to peel extremely. But still my skin peel badly, yet despite the peeling stage my pimples/acne are still there. Although pimples are getting smaller but merrier though (what I meant is that the pimples are spreading and increasing!)

PROS:
1) Dries up pimples
2) Really works for new/fresh pump pimple, it would definitely disappear overnight
3) Available in Mercury, Wastson's and other drugstore
4) Price is around PHP140, quite satisfactory for the price as you can see some healing on the process.


CONS:
1) PEELS your skin
2) Will create a transluscent thin layer onto the skin once its dries up
3) Might experience thingle or slight itchiness
4) Redness of skin

We move now to PanOxyl Gentle Facial Wash:
PROS:
1) Very gentle and does not dries up skin
2) Cleanse thoroughly
3) No unpleasant smell
4) Makes a perfect combo with the PanOxyl Gel

CONS:
1) Quite pricey for a small bottle that cost around PHP189!

Overall, I would rate 3 out of 5 for the PanOxyl GEl and Facial Wash.
Although there's no significant effect on healing of pimples/acnes,    but at least you could feel the smoothness and cleanliness of your skin.

Conclusion: I would recommend to use PanOxyl Combo compare to Defensil. Although PanOxyl might be a little pricey but the effect is much much better than Defensil.

  2. Another con for panoxyl: When pimples dry out, it leave a really dark mark.

  4. Panoxyl main ingredient is the benzoyl peroxide. The type of bacteria that can be found in the face is "ANAEROBIC BACTERIA" meaning it is alive only when there is no air. It is only form when there is much oil into our skin that blocks the air to pass through the pores of our skin. Benzoyl peroxide works by introducing air to the pores so that the ANAEROBIC BACTERIA will kill. Thats why panoxyl is very effective and it can regenerate your skin as well.
