Does the 4 hour clearsil really work for a few pimples?

CLEARASIL (benzoyl peroxide) PIMPLES: Clearasil (benzoyl peroxide) often works for mild acne but never in 4 hours. And it's not for the goobers, zingers, honkers, and splashers some youngsters get. See a dermatologist if your acne is stubborn and has not responded to over-the-counter medications.

Might not get to age: In pure or high ratios, it can explode and you'd age no more! in usual products it won't blow up - but, it is irritating to skin and is a carcinogen so i'd question using it. I've no idea what you look like, but i'd bet it's better than you think and that the "improvement" this stuff makes is less good than you think. Find people who'll "like you just the way you are"! the best way to stay young!
