Hope you don't quit. I had this problem when I first started although I have done it my own way using 5% bp and little to no moisturiser and my face turned red and super painful for atleast 2 weeks. I kept to it and applied a ton of moisturiser multiple times a day which releived the pain and but was still left red. I'm now at about 1 year and I use low amounts of moisturiser and my face never gets red or painful. I only apply once a day though because I am really lazy.
