Hi, new to regimen, starting second week

I started the regimen a week ago and have had all the symptoms i am supposed to i think..Is the skin supposed to look a little leathery dry after even after i moisturize or is this over-irritated? I don't really feel any burn at all and only slight itchiness throughout the day. My face is also a little red but that is expected..I only used a small amount the first week(one-third finger) and today i did up it to half a finger of Dan's BP Gel. Is this going too fast and should i still only use one-third a finger until the symptoms that i currently have subside. Oh yeah, I am using basis sensitive bar, Dan's BP, and Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion.

Thanks for the help.

The first month is probably the roughest in terms of skin irritation. You can decrease the bp back down a bit, or up the moisturizer. As your skin gets accustomed to it, hopefully your skin appearance will look better.
