BP Gel acts as moisturizer?

Recommended Posts

Guest

If I wash my face in the morning after I take a shower my skin gets extremely dry. However, when I apply bp, my skin is no longer dry. Even after I've let it absorb for a long period of time, my skin is not dry. Am I only the one who's skin is also "moisturized" by Dan's BP?

I noticed that as well, but I think it's due to the fact that it's mostly water so is hydrating. Panoxyl did same thing.

Nope. It's not hydrating your skin. It's gel based so it's not drying like an alcohol base would be, but bp is a mild drying agent. You still need a moisturizer.

I would say I needed a moisturizer too, except my skin is really not dry. No flakes, no tightness, nothing. My skin usually gets dry as it gets colder, and it's just beginning to now, so I may need to use moisturizer into November and December. But right now, what is the point?

Sorry, yeah, I know it's certainly not moisturising, and I always moisturize as per regimen. I thought it was just BP's main ingredient, deionized water, temporarily hydrating, just like putting water on face, but drys out in a short while.
