I've been using acne.org products for about 2 months now and after the first month I started using the aha every night with the moisturizer. I stopped using all the products for a couple days because I had left all the products at my parents house. when I started to use them again and I had finished putting on the moisturizer and aha, after a couple of hours I noticed my eyes were really swollen and puffy. I always make sure to not get any products near my eyes but I guess it had. When I woke up the next day my eyes were extremly swollen and I had to go to the ER, they told me to stop using the aha and gave me some eye creams and after a couple days the swelling was gone but I want to start using the aha again but afraid I will have a reaction again. Also the benzoyl peroxide makes my skin really red and burns everytime I use it now. Help? :((

Maybe you should try natural remedies, the chemical based acne stuff just isn't fit for your skin. You have really sensitive skin.

I know how you feel because I have extremely sensitive skin as well. You need to stop using the products because they are causing more damage than anything else.

I use Neutrogena Acne exfoliating cleanser and the cream cleanser and I find that the products don't irritate my skin and controls my acne pretty well.

 

You can also try applying tea tree oil diluted in water and leave it on your face for an hour before washing it off. It will help your pimples heal !
