BP doesn't absorb right? Am I doing something wrong? (with pics)

  1. 1. does this happen to you?

    • yes, there are white patches/streaks on my face after putting on BP
    • no, my skin has no white stuff on it when I'm done putting on BP

Hi there,

After I'm done putting on Dan's BP (the proper amount specified in the regimen), there are white patches/streaks on my face.

This is worse with the new gel, but it also happened with the old one.

Does this mean the BP is not absorbing correctly? Am I doing something wrong?

Does this happen to you also?

(sorry for the bad cell phone photos. It might look like scars, but it's actually streaks/patches of white stuff)

I apply BP in layers. I apply one thin layer, let it dry while making sure to get it all spread out properly with no streaks, let it dry, then apply another. I apply 3 layers to my problem forehead and chin areas, 2 layers to my nose.

I just can't squeeze out the whole finger of BP and glop it all on my face. Takes too long to dry and it spreads around too much (I try to limit the BP to only problem areas).

Maybe try the same technique?

mine does look a bit white until I apply my moisturizer, then it all sinks in and is not noticeable.

maybe you are not using enough moisturizer.
