This is like a win / lose situation. It works fabulously for me. I use Clindoxyl at night and Finacea in the morning.

Downside: Finacea BURNS for like 2 hours!!! Worth it?? Kinda...

But I feel like ripping my face to pieces because it hurts soooo bad....

Anyone else have similar feelings for this product??

i have been on retinoids and some can really burn for hours after.

some ways to counter this is to moisturize before or after to reduce the irritation - some derms recommend this others are against it.

its trial and error really - over time though your skin may become accustomed to it and the burning will stop or and least lessen.

some people can't use it every night because of this side effect so they use it every other night.

you could start off slow and build your way up one of 3 nights then every other night etc

hope that helps a little

Yes, benzoyl peroxide makes your skin so sensitive that Finacea will hurt like the dickens. When I cut out the BP (which is in Clindoxyl), I could tolerate Finacea just fine.
