When I first read about differin, I thought it was just what I needed. I was willing to go thru the initial breakout. But now, I don't know, it doesn't seem worth it. I have been searching these boards like mad reading everyone's comments on differin. Some are good but most are bad. Mostly people say that it didn't work at all or the initial breakout lasted a long time or they cleared up then acne returned. Someone reported that differin causes the skin to thin after prolonged use causing sagging face and wrinkles.
I'm not going to trade acne for wrinkles!
