Re: Purchasing topic acne medication from the US

I have acne-prone skin and usually stock up on topical acne creams when I've back in North America. I have not found any over-the-counter creams in Switzerland that contain the active ingredients that work for me, namely
Adapalene and benzoyl peroxide.

Since my stocks are running low I am considering purchasing some creams from iHerb through their CH site, but am worried that I might have trouble with customs. I have searched https://www.swissmedicinfo.ch/ for these active ingredients but can't find anything. I don't know if this means these ingredients aren't controlled, or if I am just not using the correct search terms.

Does anyone have experience importing such skin care products to Switzerland by post?
No problem purchasing differin (Adapaline) from iherb. I ‘ve started to buy it myself, is actually a great retinol for older faces. I imagine benzoyl peroxide is on iherb too.

They’ll also calculate your tax/duty too, and you can ship by Swiss Post (takes about 10 days or so) and is often free, or DHL (comes in 3-4 days).
