I've been on it for 19 days now, and my skin is incrediably dry and flaking. It's been this way for at least 3 or 4 days. I normally have fairly oily skin.

Honestly though, it totally depends on your body make-up. Each person is different, but I'd say you'll definitely start noticing the dryness within the first 2 weeks.
