Hello! 

So when I originally started following the regimen I used a drug store brand BP cream... I found that the white residue was just to much to deal with after I bumped up the amount, so I switched to gel. I started the gel today (I'm waiting on Dan's BP in the mail) and it was SOOOOO irritating compared to the cream.. I'm probably going to have to start back to half of a fingers length.. because I actually had to wash the stuff off my face when I tried it with the normal amount I used... I was just wondering if any of you guys had an experience similar to this? and if your face became used to the gel eventually?

And comments or opinions would be awesome!

Thanks (:

What percentage of BP is the gel? Brand? Sometimes switching products quickly can cause irritation, so bumping down for a bit until your skin is use to the new product can help... :)
