Hey everyone! I'm new here and I just wanted to ask a quick question.

I just bought a benzoyl peroxide gel a few days ago and so far it's been working well, but I have noticed that it's drying up my skin. My routine is I wash my face in the morning and apply moisturizer and after showering at night, I apply my BP gel. Now I was wondering if it's ok to use moisturizer right after I apply the gel to prevent my skin from drying. I don't want to try it yet because I'm not sure if it will make the BP less effective. So please let me know if it's fine because I don't want my skin to get too dry.

Thanks :)

Yes, that's fine. It's even recommended to prevent your face from drying out too much. Make sure to give the BP enough time to absorb before applying moisturizer. And also make sure to get a good quality moisturizer.

I don't know Jorubi, but if you're uncertain, you can check out these links for comedogenic ingredients (2nd one is a pdf). You can research the ingredients in your product and determine if any might be problematic. The further down on the list of ingredients, the less percentage of that ingredient is in the product.
