It takes time for the retin A to work. Your skin will look worse,before it looks better. When i first started using it, I almost gave up,because I wanted instint results. Well I kept using it,and about a 6 months into it , i did see results. Also, it will turn your skin RED until it adjust mine took about 3-4 months. I also used a very mild facial scrub at least 2 times a week. So each persons skin is different. Dont expect to see results for 6 months to a year..
