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

At 64 my hands were looking 74+ with thin, wrinkled, old looking hands. The skin would break easy, with a small nick causing bleeding. I used Retinin A cream every night, a small amount. In 4 months my hands definitly looked better, skin thicker, less small wrinkles and less lose skin. If you... READ MORE

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

I've been using Retin A for about 4 years. It brightens the look of my skin, lightens my freckles, reduces lines and improves my skin texture. I used to spend over $500 a year on department store facial serums and moisturizers. Now I just use the Retin A and spend less than $170 a year. Since... READ MORE

I'm just about at the 1 month mark from starting Retin-A, and I definitely see some differences. My skin has always had mild-moderate acne and after trying several different medicines I was officially fed up, so my doctor prescribed Retin-A. I was a little wary at first because I do tend to...

I've used Retin A for 3 years now, slowing increasing the strenght to .1%. I've dealt with nothing but red, irritated, peeling skin to this day. I tell my derm who says to "be patient and don't give up." I was stupid to listen to that for 3 years! I have dry peeling scaly skin; my self esteem is... READ MORE

My dermatologist prescribed Retin-A for my severe acne after exhausting quite a few other options. Retin-A is only available via prescription. If it's not covered by your healthcare provider, you may purchase it for around $600.00 or more. I'm African American and was a bit skeptical to use... READ MORE

I have always looked younger than my age. I live in Scotland in the UK and we don't get much sun ! so that has probably got something to do with that, but as I hit 30 I began to see the first signs of creppiness on my upper cheeks and naso-labial wrinkles not folds, actual lines that would stay...

I'm almost 40, and went to see a derm to treat my dark circles and the beginning of visible sun damage. I moved to SoCal two years ago and boy, did that sun make its mark on me. I used to live in a very sunny and warm part of the world, but it wasn't as close to the equator as LA is and I never... 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
