I've started my 'the ordinary ' regime. Thought I'd go with one product at a time so applied buffet last night and this morning. Looking a bit red and blotchy now. It's hidden with makeup,no burning or itching.
Does this sound normal? Not sure if I'm sensitive to it or my skins just adjusting.
I heard it can depend on when you put it on your skin. For example, my skin gets a bit flushed on cheeks if my skin is warm from the shower. Also if l use water that is too hot or cold. Any new product has the potential to cause a slight bit of irritation as your skin adapts. I’m not talking allergies or extreme sensitivity issues- then you’d be wise to stop! Use a little next time- l like to try things on my forehead first.
I had some facial redness that was easily covered by make up when I first started using it. It's completely settled down now and only really lasted a week or so. I did initially use it morning and evening but ultimately I'm too lazy for that and now just use it once a day. Maybe try that?
