IF YOU HAVE LOOKED 10 SECONDS ON THIS WEBSITE YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN IT IS RECOMMENDED TO PUT A MOISTURIZER ON AFTER USING BENZOYL PEROXIDE SINCE BENZOYL PEROXIDE DRIES OUT YOUR SKIN AND APPLYING A MOISTURIZER DOES NOT DECREASE THE RESULTS BENZOYL PEROXIDE HAS ON YOUR ACNE.

P.S. CAPS LOCK FTW!!!

Yeah moisturizer is highly recommended with BP use, otherwise your skin may get too dry. I found out the hard way not too long ago. If you're really oily (like me) then you can get away with no moisturizer for a little while (maybe about 5-7 days) but I would start using one soon. Look for: noncomedogenic (won't clog pores), oil-free, alcohol-free, fragrance-free. Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture w/ SPF 15 is a good one. Good luck! :)

Same thing happened to me. I had horribly oily skin to the point nothing would even dry on me. So when I got the DKR I pretty much shelved the lotion back in the box. The first 3 days I was oily but on the morning of the 4th day I noticed that I didn't need to re-apply the BP anywhere (This is what I was doing when I got over-oily). On the 5th day I figured it was the cold weather so I took a steamy shower which always helps me. On day 6 I knew I was in trouble. My eyelids were red and my lips were cracking. I went another 4 days before trying the lotion. I found out I was allergic to Jojoba but I found a good alternative.

But yea, even those who have a case of the bad-ass oilys will need a backup soon.
