Tretinoin ~ Don't Buy It Because It's Cheap - Portland, OR

I have used Tretinoin Gel .025% for the past month.

I also wanted to ask, since you've been on Acutane and Retin-A gel and the like, have you tried birth control pills? READ COMMENT

So after taking Spiro for nearly 2 weeks, I've decided to stop. I've just been lethargic to the point of feeling sad all day. Also, since I'm taking Tretinoin gel now, it's best to only be on one medication because it's impossible to... READ COMMENT

First of all, I want to say that you are BEAUTIFUL! Just gorgeous! I think you look far more stunning as a brunette than a blonde and your hair in the video is fabulous! Now, I want to ask you what strength you're using and if you... READ COMMENT
