No, sometimes your skin will have an allergic reaction meaning this product just probably isn't for you. To confirm that it is caused by this product, wait until at least three weeks of continual use. That is when you will actually see the effect of the product and if it is breaking you out. If it is the. Try something else, like the marajacula oil from tarte. It is similar, in the same price range, and the packaging and amount of product is far better.
I'm not an expert by any means but I'd give this product and product like this at least a month if not two to do their job and mellow out before quitting it. I'd say that it's working and your skin needs to do its thing before you quit it. I love this product, though I did not experience the break out. I do, however, use exfoliating products so I may just be ahead in the game.

I don't break out, but a BM product (a night time exfoliation treatment which I recall cost $60...I am sorry I don't recall the name?) caused a terrible breakout for me, while the rest of the world seems to love it, as per reviews. To me, it looked like an acne breakout. Instead I was told it was contact dermatitis or an allergic reaction. I stopped that treatment ASAP, even though it was supposed t be great for my skin as a nightly treatment. I tried later on, and same thing happened. This oil U broke out form is nice, but its not the only one. I would not continue to use it if I broke out from it. I believe your skin is telling you it is not happy with it....maybe one of the special secret "active soil ingredients" does not agree with your skin....or perhaps it reacts with something else U are using? There are so many other wonderful products a Sephora U can try instead. How about Fresh Seaberry oil? JM Argan oil? Tarte's Maracuja oil? PTR Squalene "oil?" Some use the oils as serum, and some use them as a moisturizer. U can find on oil serum that is soothing to your skin. I am sorry U broke out, but don't worry...U can find another one that works for your skin. I try to listen to my skin, since I once cont' to use a product which gave me "breakout, " that later wound up burning my skin. (Long story) . I tried to tough it out, & I further hurt my skin in the end. But we all have different skin & issues. I would discontinue this product if it gave me a reaction.
