I started to use BP again to treat some mild breakouts. I spread BP in the surrounding area and it gets dry so I'm thinking, I could just put some moisturizing lotion first and then dab some BP in the areas I need it in.
Is this recommended and safe?
I think the stuff I use (not moisturizer) is just BP treatment, but it says on the bottle that it's repair lotion. The BP concentration is 3.7% which is higher than the recommended 2.5%. So is this even considered BP treatment or just actual, regular lotion?
Thanks for your time.

Yes, it's perfectly fine to use benzoyle peroxide in problem spots with moisturizer where needed. Many people have combination skin and this is a good way to deal with it.
