Retin-A, a Vitamin-A derivative, is used to combat acne by increasing cell turnover which leaves skin with less blocked pores, and hence, less icky white or blackheads.

I am a 20-year-old, female and I have tried about everything in the book to treat my skin for acne and acne scars. I came across Retin A 0.05% when my boyfriends mom told me about this product and I have started using it about two weeks ago. I have read a lot of reviews about this product... READ MORE

It's been 1 week so far and I'm planning to track my progress on here. I want to write down what I'm doing and I hope you guys can help me regulate what I do so that I can achieve the same successful results. what I'm using: Cetaphil Facial Wash (gentle) --> Should I switch to... READ MORE

I use retin-a .05% and will say its the best thing in my regime and I will never go without. You will experience peeling and redness for several weeks while your skin adjusts to using it, but believe me it is well worth it. I've been using it for almost 4 months and my skin is already... READ MORE

Hi, I began using Retin 0.1% and Hydriquonine 6% on Sep of this year I used it for about 3 weeks only at night (every other night I might add). I did go out in the sun a few times and I don't know if perhaps I was not well protected with sunscreen. I noticed that I had developed new... READ MORE

I have been using Tretinoin for the past 9 months. I have really been pleased with the results. I had a facelift, brow lift and fat transfer last November. I asked my Plastic Surgeon what is the best thing I can do to maintain the results and he said use Retin A/Tretinoin. I have some skin... READ MORE

Pros- My face IMMEDIATLY tightened and I could feel the product working. Worked extremely well with mildly severe acne. (combination skin) After a month of use, my skin has NEVER looked better. (used Retin-A at night and a 5% Benzoyl Peroxide in the morning.) Cons- Dryness did occur...used... READ MORE

A little background about my skin : oily, acne-prone, with a lot of acne scars I'm 20 years old, been struggling with acne since I was 13 years old. I never tried any strong medication to heal my skin, just a few prescription cream and antibiotics from dermatologist, but none of them really heal... READ MORE

I want to start my story about retin A and why i used that . Although i cared a lot about my skin and applied best commercial creams , fruit masks, avoid sunshines , having good nutritions, i remarked that my face skin is not fresh it's somehow dark and not harmonic with my body skin. A doctor... READ MORE

I tried to leave my skin alone in hopes that it would heal and have tried multiple creams/exfoliation the past year and a half with no... READ MORE

Hi guys, i've been reading a lot of your stories about acne and what you've all been doing to help so I decided to write my own review. I had perfectly clear skin until about the middle of my freshman year in highschool when I started partying, all of the sudden my skin broke out and I had no... READ MORE

I was prescribed Retin-A to clear up some issues I've had with problems of the skin that pop up due to hormones. Within a week it completely changed the color/texture of the skin on my face. My doctor said to wait it out as these are normal side effects- ("it will get worse before it gets... READ MORE

I purchased generic Retin-A cream (tretinoin made by Johnson & Johnson) in the .05% strength. My reason for starting this medicine to kick off an anti-aging routine. BACKGROUND: I have used the tanning bed in the past and was a flight attendant for six years. Other than some fine crows feet... READ MORE

This is so scary. Started for acne flares (I'm 44 female) and derm winked and said hidden benefit is that helps with wrinkles. I was psyched! Started 5 weeks ago. Read up that it's fine to use around eyes, so figured why not! -My eye wrinkles have gotten so much worse. Bags, troughs,... READ MORE

I am really beginning to question and wonder about Dermatologists. Why is it that 99% of derms out there tell you that Retin A can't harm or damage the skin? Why do they insist that that it ONLY makes skin beautiful as long as you "keep at it!"? Before trying Retin A I read all the reviews. I... READ MORE

**I am using it for the anti-aging benefits - not for acne.** My skin type: I never ever had any problems with acne. Just a couple of zits here and there - hormonally-based, I believe. My skin is definitely not oily but, not necessarily "dry" either - except sometimes in the winter. I am very... READ MORE

So I am on my 4th Week of Retin-a 0.025%. I started using it because of some mild adult acne I was experiencing around my chin area. Cystic acne! My gyno was the one who prescribed it. It took me a week to start using it because I had gone through hours of reviews and was terrified at the... READ MORE

I went to a dermatologist for some acne (30 yr old male) and she gave me a script for tretinoin cream .025%. After only using it 3 times my skin is always super oily now and I have blotchy red skin.

I am a 25 year old female living in California. I have had moderate acne for a little over 10 years. I have reached a point where my breakouts are manageable but I have so many deep clogged pores that the texture of my skin is very bumpy. In the past my skin has responded well to birth control,...
