Searched for it to no avail.
I just got some new BP a couple weeks ago because I thought it was because of old products, the BP I have, in the tube, comes out sliding over my hand and it's like there is a clear liquid that separates from the BP, it makes it very difficult to apply.

I shake the bottle endlessly but to no luck, I keep the BP in a cool dry place (My bathroom cupboard.)

Does anyone else have this problem and know what to do?


New Regimen!

Morning: 2 pumps Dan's cleanser in the shower, and "Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Hydrating Care" to moisturize, works to get me through the day without dry skin, but doesn't show, it's like there's nothing on my face, it's matt and doesn't shine.


Night: 2/3 pumps Dan's cleaner in the shower, using the cleanser to shave with a 2 blade generic razor, end segment finger's worth of Dan's BP, 2 pumps Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops generic, organic jojoba oil.

Sometimes just Dan's AHA+, or the usual application of Dan's BP with AHA+ on top if I'm feeling hardcore.


1 generic multivitamin, 30mg Zinc if the multivitamin doesn't contain it, 1/2 odorless garlic capsules, 2/3 EyeQ capsules (omega 3, 6, evening primrose oil,)

Have been on lots of different prescriptions, most successful was oxytetracycline.


New regimen!

Dove summer glow morning

AHA+ (acne.org) night!

Awaiting 20% salicylic acid gel in post for chin and nose.

Acne isn't returning after almost 2 years on the regimen

Looking for treatments for oily skin however, I have that really bad

That doesn't sound like it's normal. Have you contacted customer support about it?

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon

This is good to know that I'm not the only one who is experiencing this. I just bought a tube of BP back on May 9 after being out for a few months. I received mine and found the same thing, that it was very runny and slip off my finger and wouldn't apply well. Thank you for posting this and thank you AKL, I will contact customer support. Perhaps we aren't the only ones, maybe it was a bad shipment.

Have you tried shaking the tube thoroughly for a minute? I found by doing that, it stopped the running and worked more effectively.
