how long is "a while", and how much are you using? through browsing this board i discovered that i had been using WAY too much for 6 whole weeks; i cut down to one pea sized amount (doesnt quite feel like enough but it is) and i noticed a difference in about 2 days. it is still working but i am not suffering through redness and stinging and all.

just remember - peeling good, redness bad.

lilsparkle brings up a good point. Are you using more than a pea size amount for your ENTIRE face? If so, cut back. Also, try using it every other day vs. every single day for awhile to see if that helps.
