This product made my skin very dry as well. However, this product still worked amazingly on my skin and definitely diminished blackheads. I only used the product 1-2 times a week, which helped prevent the dry skin. About 20 minutes after you apply the serum, put a gentle moisturizer on the areas of your skin that are dry because of it, and reapply as needed! That will definitely help.
You should use it once a week only. You need to follow up with a moisturizer step 3.
If you had a reaction to it, discontinue use and follow with a gentle cleanser like the Essential-C Cleanser followed by a gentle toner, I suggest in your case the Hydrating Toner by Murad, then a step 3 moisturizer. I would say try using Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture would give your skin some of its moisture back.
Stay out of the sun and when you do go out make sure to use a SPF (Murad has a nice one called Anti-Aging Moisturizer). Hope this helps.

It depends on how often you moisturize and what you are motorizing with! When using this product I had insane dryness and peeling and then invested in some Lancome Energie De Vie (green bottle!) it is SUPER thick and creamy, and makes your skin feel so amazing. It should help out tons, it is pretty costly but trust me it's worth every penny!

I have found that using a rich moisturizer is the key...I personally use Lush's Dream Cream and combined with this product I haven't had any dryness!

You will definitely need a great oil-free moisturizer. Maybe try taking it down to every other day, or even every two days, such as Mon., Thurs, etc. Maybe, go without it for a few days and try again?? If it persists this may, unfortunately, be too harsh for your skin. :(
