How to Use Benzagel Products

For the last five years in a row Benzagel Canada has been named the #1 recommended acne treatment by pharmacists across Canada. With such a wide range of consumers, the most frequent question is how to best use the products. So if you have questions, you’re not alone.

There are many people out there who may be using these products incorrectly, and we are here to provide the correct steps to use our set of products in the most straightforward way possible.

Acne Gel

How to Use:
1). Wash your hands and face with a non-medicated soap and dry with a towel. Use warm water, not hot or cold.
2). Test gel on small area of your skin to test for excessive irritation and dryness.
3). Apply the gel to problem areas, but don’t use more than a pea-sized amount for each.
4). Make sure to rub the gel in gently, but don’t press too hard.
5). Use the gel once a day to start, then go up to twice a day once you get comfortable; once in the morning and once before you go to bed.

Considerations: People with fair or sensitive skin should begin with one application daily. Slight stinging, peeling, and redness may occur; this is evidence that Benzagel is working.
If you have a severe case of acne and you do not see improvement after a couple of weeks, consult a doctor.

Caution: Avoid contact with eyes, nostrils, lips and mouth; if contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. For external use only. Keep tightly closed. Protect from heat. Keep out of reach of children. May bleach fabrics.

Acne Wash

How to Use:
1). Shake the bottle well before opening it.
2). Wash your face gently with warm water and dry with a towel.
3). Test the wash on a small portion of your face, testing for irritation.
4). Fully apply the wash in soft, circular motions on your skin. Be careful to keep away from eyes and mouth.
5). Rinse with warm water.
6). Use the wash once a day to start, then go up to twice a day once you get comfortable; once in the morning and once before you go to bed.

Considerations: It may take a couple of weeks at least to start seeing results depending on severity of the acne. Slight stinging, peeling, and redness may occur; this is evidence that Benzagel is working.
If you have a severe case of acne and you do not see improvement after a couple of weeks, consult a doctor.

Caution: Avoid contact with eyes, nostrils, lips and mouth; if contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water.

Spot On

How to Use:
1). Wash hands and face with non-medicated soap and warm water before applying.
2). Simply apply the cream in a tiny dab over infected area and gently rub in.
3). If applying sunscreen or any other facial products, put them on after applying spot-on.
4). Use up to 3 times daily, but no more. Applying spot-on too frequently can cause irritation and won’t make the pimple go away any faster!

Considerations: Spot On is recommended for individual pimples and not acne. If you have acne, you’ll want something stronger like the products listed above.

Caution: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, lips, mouth and nostrils; if contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. This product may bleach hair or dyed fabrics.

Cleansa-Wipes

How to Use:
1). Wash hands and face with non-medicated soap and warm water before applying.
2). Wipe pad across problem areas and then dispose of.
3). Use 2-3 times daily as a facial cleanser or in a combination with Benzagel Acne Gel and Acne Wash for acne treatment and to and achieve a healthier looking complexion.

Considerations: Do not use these wipes as a substitute for makeup removal pads.

Caution: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, lips, mouth and nostrils; if contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. This product may bleach hair or dyed fabrics.
