From the FAQs:

Q: When I apply the moisturizer it burns/stings. What should I do?

A: Some people may experience light burning or stinging when they are new to the Regimen. The skin may be sensitive from the benzoyl peroxide and this may cause an uncomfortable sensation when the moisturizer is applied. This usually goes away within a few weeks as the skin adjusts to the new products. If it doesn't, you may want to try a different moisturizer. See our recommended products page. Also, be sure you did not start out with one of the AHA moisturizers. If you are going to use one of them, it's usually best to wait at least a month before doing so. The glycolic acid and/or lactic acid in them may create a brief sting or burning sensation to the skin.

This could be what's bothering me as well. I opened a topic in "The Regimen" subforum about it yesterday. The last couple of times I applied the regimen, I noticed that my skin only gets darker after I put the moisturizer on. Also, it still burns, even after 3 weeks.

That's it, I'm trying a new moisturizer as soon as I figure out which ones are good :)

Do post your results after you switch moisturizers, Nickay, I'll do the same.

As a side note, the DK cleanser and BP are great! Especially the cleanser - probably the best one I've tried so far and I don't plan on switching any time soon. The moisturizer, however is a horrid experience which I will replace as soon as I get the chance. One time, when I started flaking really bad (before I got my hands on some jojoba oil), I just slathered on a bunch of moisturizer before going to bed. I felt as though my skin was melting off and my entire face was scorching red. Also, it's very greasy :\ This is probably just my (and some other people's) skin's reaction to the moisturizer, though, as I've seen a number of people that are satisfied with it

There's a list of recommended moisturizers here.

A lot of Regimen users seem to like Cetaphil (which is what I, personally, use), Complex 15, and CeraVe.
