Re: Differin

Hate to say but it didn't do a darn thing...tried it at two different times in two separate years and both times didn't do anything but make my face look more oily and I do not have oily skin.

Re: Differin

Yeah, I agree with latayy26, been using for six months no change at all.

Re: Differin

I also must agree with the other posts. Differin really didn't do anything. I mean it did cause the "inital breakout" as it is suppose to. But after that it did nothing. The breakout didn't get better or worse. Just said the same really. Also made me quite oily. (And I already have oily skin!) But everyone is different. I know a few people who have used Differin and it worked for them. So give it a shot... if you don't see improvement after 6 weeks... consider switching meds (like I had to do) good luck!

Re: Differin

I have had the same luck.
Differin did not work at all for me.
It also made my skin oily.
Retin A micro works better for me.
