I started with my ziana gel last night before bed. I noticed that the gel was really sticky and it made it hard to spread all over my face. I probably ended up using more than the “pea size” amount recommended to make sure I applied some to my whole face. The next morning, my face looked okay. It was a little oilier that normal, and I noticed a few more little acne spots that popped up overnight, but I actually noticed some of the large, painful, deep “under the skin” cysts had reduced in size. My face normally flakes, and it was just a little flakier than it normally is. I could still apply my makeup like normal. Throughout the day, my face was okay for the most part. My face has been feeling irritated though, with a slight stinging all day long.
