Hello, everyone one I just got my regimen products yesterday in the mail, so I started last night before bed. This morning when i applied the products i noticed the moisturiser is balling up on my face. Anyone know why? Thanks!

It depends on what you may be doing that could be causing this...

 

Did you use the BP both at night and the next morning? Because during the first week it's only supposed to be used once a day. Maybe it's from jumping in too fast?

 

Are you washing in-between the recommended 10-12 hour time period and starting with only half a pump of BP?

 

Are you using enough moisturizer and waiting until the BP is completely soaked in?

 

I think of the BP in terms of a "serum" because of the way it would be applied as part of any skincare regimen. Serums can pill up as well if they're not completely dry before moisturizing, if you're not using enough moisturizer on top of them (especially in this case), or if your not gentle when rubbing the moisturizer in.

 

But hey, it's happened to me every once in awhile, too. Leave-on topicals need some TLC when applying anything on top, in my opinion.


In a nutshell, I've had mild/moderate adult on-set acne which began towards the end of 2009 (22 years old). Regarding my beliefs and the previous skincare/lifestyle changes I've tried, I've been conflicted, misinformed, resistant, allergic, and had my hopes up too high only to be let down. Many of my previous posts on here may reflect that. Considering I have never found an explanation as to why I developed acne in my twenties, whereas I've had flawless skin my entire life up until then, I claim to know nothing. I'm still fighting the fight and can only offer my humble advice.

Finished my Accutane course on 3/29/2015
40mg every month for 6 months

Products Used While On Accutane & still currently using, as my skin hasn't returned to its normal state yet:
Cleansers:  Plain 'ol Oatmeal or sometimes no cleanser at all (AM) // Avalon Organics CoQ10 Repair Facial Cleansing Milk (PM)
Toner:  Rosewater or George's Aloe Spray (usually only PM)
Moisturizers:  Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen for Face, SPF 50 (AM) // Argan Oil or Avocado Oil (PM)

Other:  Reviva Labs Vitamin E Stick for around my eyes
Bausch & Lomb Soothe XP-Extra Protection Emollient Eye Drops
Manual exfoliation once a week with Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub
^^^ which may or may not have been ideal, but the flakes got pretty bad and were definitely noticable!
