Is this a purge or reaction?

Recommended Posts

I’ve been on a barebones routine of

AM: water, Nu Skin Moisture Mist, HL Skin Plumping Gel Cream

PM: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, same as AM

to try to fix my moisture barrier. I found out about the 7-skin method (and how it helps immensely with hydration) a couple days ago and began to pat layers of the moisture mist in before going over it with moisturizer. I’m unsure if the results are a purge or a reaction. The redness and bumps are in areas that I have a lot of closed comedones and bumps so could this just be a purge? I haven’t used any other irritating products as my routine is fairly simple already.. 

The Nu Skin Moisture Mist ingredients are: 

Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sodium PCA, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Fructose, Glycine, Inositol, Lactic Acid, Niacinamide, Urea, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, Sodium Benzoate.

With Lactic Acid being the 10th ingredient, would this be the cause? I’ve used the mist as a mist before with no issues. Unsure wether to press on and ride out the possible purge or stop layering it.
