retin a vs. retin a micro

here's my question, is the difference between retin a and retin a micro worth 100 bucks? I'd purchase either one online but retin a micro seems to cost 100 dollars more, very expensive..unless someone would like to email me with another suggestion...linky link.

so far retin a's worked on me but i get red blotches of dry skin that might as well be zits, they're ugly and i'm a red head w/ PALE skin so they stand out. what do you guys think? should i stick retin a out or go w/ the micro?

Well i use retin-a micro 0.04% now and find that it is irratating. The manufacturer says that it is less irritating but I dont know if it is enopugh to justify 100.00. Mine costs me 25 dollars b/c of insurance. Actually it's not that irritating id go for it if i were you. one tube will last a couple months or longer so it is worth it.

Re: retin a vs. retin a micro

Yeah, I was wondering how long a tube would last me. I WISH my insurance would cover it. UGH.

So, another question, have you used regular retin a as well? was there a noticable improvement in redness/dry patches between the two?
