I began using retin A in january 2014. I don't remember the specific date but it was definitely january. I was desperate to get clear skin so I would research acne cures every day and I found this and then made the decision to order it online. So I ordered a 20g tube of a ret gel from ebay. At...

I've been battling mild to moderate acne since I was a teenager. I am now 24 years old and I was sick of still getting acne! I mainly suffer from hormonal acne and break out around my chin/mouth region. Of course I am like most people who tried nearly everything in their teens to no avail. ... READ MORE

I was 31 when I noticed my skin getting a bit more dry in the winter time than usual. I guess I was overreacting and started to search a good anti age treatment over the internet. I ended up doing a micro needling session 3 times. Doctor did it with 1,5mm needless. Afterward the doctor... READ MORE

Hey guys! So, I have finally decided to write a review on Retin-A-- a product that I have been using (along with other products in a regimen) since 2011. I've had acne since 6th grade, but when I turned 21, it moved from just my forehead to ALL OVER my face. Only thing clear was my nose! I tried... READ MORE

I have been struggling with acne since puberty. My first battle with acne ended with pitted scars on my cheeks, temples, and jawline. I have used a plethora of creams, face washes, and oral medications, including Accutane. I started using Retin-A Micro .04% once a day on 2/5/14, along with using... READ MORE

I'm 20 years old and I've had acne since I was 8 (yes, 8!). For a number of years, I kept it mostly under control with topical antibiotics, but last summer, I had a major breakout, the worst I've had since high school. I was put on a short course of antibiotics and then .01% of Retin-a to... READ MORE

I am 43 years old and starting to notice fine lines around my eyes. I have received my first prescription for Retin A trenitoin cream in 0.025% strength, for a generic cream version. I will document the evolution of my treatment here to pay it forward :) thank you to all who have posted their... READ MORE

I am 32 years old, I started to see aging signs and wanted to slow down the process ;) Using retin a for 2 months already but so far I do not see any positive results... I have a sensitive skin, but I am being very careful, using moisturizers and waiting 30 min after washing my face before... READ MORE

I started with Retin-A 3 months ago, my skin was pretty bad back then. At first, it really seemed that I am catching a dead fish - my skin got worse. This phase did not last for long and after that my skin became better after every week. Now I am clear, have only some scars left, but they are... READ MORE

I used to have FLAWLESS skin. Acne was so rare in me that i would go to sleep with make up or not wash my face and i would not break out, at the most i would get 1 little zit per year. I don't know what happened that caused me to start breaking out at age 19. If anything had changed is that i... READ MORE

After getting the implanon, my skin was at its worst. My doctor failed to mention to me that it was pure estrogen, but my skin did not. I wanted my flawless skin back. First I saw a new doctor and got my implanon removed. Then I saw a dermatologist for the first time ever, and she prescribed me... READ MORE

So this is my second go at Retin-a micro .04 strength. I started to get minor acne at the tender age of 13. My mother, being just as vain as me , promptly shuttled me off to the dermatologist and got me hooked on retin-a micro. I started to have really dry skin and flakiness and all that jazz... READ MORE

Some background: I have had problems with acne since highschool and was first prescribed an array of antibiotics (tetracycline, minocycline etc) that yielded no results. I was then put on Diane 35 and switched to Yasmin when that didn't work. Since I was 14 I've been on Yasmin and it was great... READ MORE

I got a breast augmentation to correct breast asymmetry. I ended up with severe stretch marks all over my breasts. I did some research and discovered that my fav creme, Retin-A, which I already use on my face, works to improve the appearance of these nasty creatures. I couldn't find many reviews... READ MORE

So today is day 3 in my retin A regiment. I had never done it before. I use Retin A 0.1% and I use it all over my face. First day I put two drops all over my face, didnt look like much, so I added some more. It took several ( like three-four) hours for it to dry. Now I know I applied too much.... READ MORE

I've had moderate acne since I hit puberty and parts of my face are very red due to picking and some light scarring. The only thing I've ever done routinely is wash my face, usually once daily with Neutrogena deep cleanse. I went to the dermatologist on March 20th and was placed on this... READ MORE

I have been using Differin 0.3% for several years, all through high school and first year of university. It didn't completely eliminate my previously moderate acne, but it kept it at bay and my skin was generally pretty clear with normal, mild breakouts when I was stressed or didn't wash my...

Suddenly starting from the June-12 i am getting lot of acne, it might be due to stress or lot of chocloates or hormonal change but i am not sure. However it is universal truth that it leads to depression. I started with some home remedies but it made my acne more worst. I was frustrated and went... READ MORE
