A 18-year-old female asked:

I have not benefitted each time i used benzoyl peroxide twice before, so would a face wash be better than an overnight cream and at a lower concentration?

Benzoyl peroxide would need to be used regularly to help (not only 2x), but if still not helping, unlikely that face wash will work better. Face washes are usually used with other products. You may need stronger topical med by prescription, so consider consulting with your doctor or a dermatologist.
