      Hi Omama,

      That may be because the product is not right for your skin type or you are allergic to some of its ingredients. Please discontinue using as soon as possible. If you have an oily T zone then your skin is not “Normal,” its most likely “Combination.” Please go to the “Whats your skin type” Quiz on BEAUTYHOOKED and check to confirm your skin type first.
