After a little experimenting with my face, I found that using the moisturizer burns A LOT for 30 min. to an hour after applying it (I'd be watching something funny on youtube after applying it and I can't even smile at it because my face would hurt a lot due to the burning), but it doesn't cause any redness at all (which is strange). But what does cause the redness is the Epiduo (or the Benzoyl Peroxide in it), but it doesn't burn at all, it only itches a little after applying it. But then I tried using another moisturizer this morning (Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion, can be found here: http://www.acne.org/...n-reviews-1726/) and it doesn't burn at all or cause any redness (so far at least). This confuses me because I heard that BP strips a layer of your skin which makes your skin a lot more sensitive to sunlight, or anything you apply to your face (including moisturizer), so my skin being more sensitive from the BP could be the reason why the Clean & Clear moisturizer burns/hurts a lot, so maybe it's not the moisturizer itself; I heard that the redness and irritation/burning should go away in a few weeks after my skin has adjusted to all these chemicals. But the Aveeno moisturizer doesn't burn one bit, so I still don't know if it's my skin being more sensitive (and it will go away with time) or it's the Clean & Clear moisturizer that's actually causing the burning, even though the only reason I bought is because I heard a lot of good reviews about it. Another thing I tried was apply the moisturizer that usually burns on an area on face where I never applied BP, and found out that it doesn't hurt at all, in fact, I get a small cooling sensation (which is the product supposed to have), so that confuses me even more lol. This really sucks, I'd rather have acne + dry skin than have this really painful burning sensation and having red face all day (it's as if you got a bad sunburn), I don't even know which is causing the redness & burning. Sorry for the book I just wrote, I just wish someone can point me in the right direction.
