day 1,2,3 -these days nothing really changed except i started putting on more moisturizer because i got slighty drier

week one- my skin got really sensitive to products and my skin stung like a bitch i even debated to stop using it but then decided to take a few days off so my skin with get used to it ..and the areas applied were starting to get red :/

week 2- the side affect are still there but less serious so the same ..and i am flaking alot

week 3- sooooooooooooooooooooooooo dry

week 4- no more side affects eg stinging , redness but i am dry and flaking ...and i notice i have some purging on my chin and lower cheeks and random spot on my forehead (never breakout there)
