Has anyone else noticed that the Acne.org moisturizer (which I love!) has made you slightly tanner? Many people have noticed this for me and also for my friend who I got to use Acne.org's products. I'm just guessing that its the moisturizer however it could also be one of the other 2 steps of the Regimen.

The benzoyl peroxide does make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Without any SPF in your routine, you will probably tan faster than normal. I usually mix some sunscreen in my moisturizer to avoid burning.

I noticed that my skin was a lot more red/tan when I used BP, which I liked too. Living in the UK, my skin is naturally pretty pale and it's nice to add some colour to it!

It makes me yellow. In fact I use a lot at night and my pillowcases have yellow blotches on them.

I find that when I up my BP too fast and turn red-faced, then put my yellow moisturizer on, I literally do turn orange. Looks like I got a bad fake tan. Lol..

There is licorice root extract in it (if you didn't already know) which makes the moisturizer yellow. I too notice that is makes my face darker. Anyone think it smells like alcohol? It smells like something that would be fermenting....lol

I've only been on Dan's regimen for 2 days now, but I have noticed that my face looks a bit darker with the moisturizer (and jojoba oil) but I like it because now my face actually matches the rest of my body. :)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's experiencing the tan side effect. Lol

I have the same issue!  A week in and i realize that my dry patches/flakes or whatever the hell you want to call it are yellow/tan.  I have to get close to the mirror to see it but it makes me wonder if other people notice it.  Thinking about switching back to my neutrogenia for sensitive skin but will wait to try my jojoba oil with this moisturizer

The appearance of tanning does go away with time and consistent use... Just be use to add the suggested amount of moisturizer and all should be well.. Personally, it'd take the slightly tanned face over a pale, ghoulish looking face that I usually get when using Cetaphil or Neutrogena... :)

Even if you use a lot, it should be fully absorbed by your skin. I wouldn't personally leave enough on my skin to turn my pillow cases yellow.
