I thought that for a while. Espcially since my skin is so oily. I thought it was just because I put too much topicals on.

So, earlier this summer, I tried to ween off of it until I was just using a mild cleanser. After a few weeks, my oil production was the same and I broke out real bad. I tried to stick with it, but it wouldn't subside so I went back onto Botchla's regimen and it started to clear up.

I think you need some of it, but you still have to be gentle to your skin. I think as long as you use a good moisturizer, you can prevent too much harsness from all of the products.
