Retin A by janssen exp date 9. 2013.bought it if off the counter in Malaysia. I started 3 days ago. unfortunately i did take the before pic on Day 1 .i took pics of day 2 and day 3. im not experiencing any peeling. The label stated that almost peeling or irrittation for most skin types except dry skin. I fall under the category of combi oily n normal. its day 3 now so no peeling yet but i did notice my scars looked more exxagerated on day 2.but day 3 looks normal. still too early. will keep ya posted.

Hi, did you purchase 0.05% retin-A cream/gel? I bought mine at RM45 at a local pharmacy because I want to get rid of my ice pick scars! I haven't started using it and somehow I'm afraid of trying this retin-A.. as I read quite a lot of negative feedback from a few users on the net.. but I think I'll apply a bit on my forehead first and see how it works on my fine lines..
