You didn't mention jojoba oil. If you haven't tried it yet, please consider it. This stuff can make a world of difference my dry skin. Just add some drops of it to your moisturizer in your hand before applying it to your face.

The expiration is on the crimp of the tube or bottom of the bottle. Here's more information.

I responded to your email. Hope you got it. But basically, if your acne is isolated to just the cheek area there is no need to use it on your whole face.


In Topic: Week 2 Question

We typically suggest easing into it to minimize harsh initial side effects, so by now you are in the second week so you are using it twice daily and your skin is experiencing the hardening phase. Read more here: http://www.acne.org/faq.html#burn

 

Am I understanding you right that you did not use moisturizer during the first week? Do not skip the moisturizer even if you feel you don't need it. It helps prevent dryness.

 

While a bit of burning is a common sensation, it should not "burn like hell". You are either using too much too soon or you may be sensitive to it. If you feel that you are experiencing something out of the ordinary please discontinue and see your doctor for advice.
