csr gel makes me suffer on burning and severe flakiness

Since when i switch to CSR gel my face gets burns or something like stinging and severe flakiness.I been on the regimen since first week of november and im already thinking about going back to proactiv.I think the ingredients of the csr gel is too strong than proactiv (bp).Is anyone here is a former proactiv user and trying to switch back again??

I am not a fan of BP either, I would say try something with salysilic acid it works a lot better for me.

It must be the new preservatives making you red and irritated. The old gel worked better (for me) and calmed my red marks. Right now, Dan is testing the waters by reducing the amount of preservatives in the BP to see if itll lessen the side effects. If you dont want to wait until he finds the perfect balance, Id say go back to Proactiv BP and just check back in the "Clear Skin Regimen Gel" forums to see whats up and then switch back to Dan's BP as Proactive's BP is so damn expensive!

Hey there, if you would check the following links you may find some answers to your CSR issues...

FAQ

How much BP to use

If you still want to switch to Proactive, fine, however considering you switched away from it in the first place proves it obviously wasn't working (not surprising).. so don't give up on the CSR, it actually works!
