Burning and blotchy red skin

Hi everyone, I started the regimen 3 days ago and started seeing positive results straight away. However after the 1st day I started getting red skin and moderate burning especially in the morning even when just getting water on my face from showering. It is not unbearable but it is irritating...i would say it is laike having moderate sunburn in terms of the painlevel maybe 5 or 6 out of 10. I don't think it is an allergy as it is limited to my cheeks and chin...my forehead and nose have not reacted badly at all.

i'm using the cetaphil cleanser and moisterizer with Benzac AC 2.5.%...i'm going to cut down to applying once a day for a while and see if this helps.....is this a normal reaction to start with..it seems to be more sever than the expected results page but will it clear up after a week or 2?

thanks for your help!
