  • remove remaining traces of product with Equate Rejuvenating toner OR gentle cleanser
Apply short-contact BP treatment to active breakouts

You need to quit with the oils. Oils don't remove oils from your skin. I know I sound like really bitchy but I don't mean to. I also think you steaming your pores open after applying oil is a recipe for disaster. Also, bp is not just a "spot" treatment. You need a thin layer over your whole face to prevent breakouts. Trust me, I have been battling acne for 20 yrs so I know what I am talking (writing) about. Try running your regimen by a dermatologist and see what he or she says. Just a gentle nudge in the right direction. PEACE!
