I am male and used Skinoren for 3 months. It was awesome stuff. I stopped because it made my skin so oily, but it was still really good. I never got completly clear but before Skinorn my face was horrible, during and after it was 80% better. It really is good stuff for most people, but I hear its not good for dark skinned people.

Dear Tummy, I have oily skin, but its been dry recently due to the fact that I have been using benzomycin, I was wondering if i can still use benzomycin while using skinoren(not at the same time, one at night and other in morning) to control the oily skin i have? U said that it made your skin oily, so i wanna keep usin the benzomycin to maintain the oiliness of my face. Thanks

I suppose you could use Benzamycin if you wanted, but it would have to be first. Nothing goes through Skinoren once applied...thats why makeup goes on so well, it doenst really let it absorb in the skin. Skinoren is so good because it puts a layer on your skin that kills bacteria and prevents bacteria from the outside entering your pores. You'll notice this when you put it on in the morning and about 5pm you might touch your face somewhere and feel this greasy film that is Skinoren still on your face. If you taste your finger (I wouldnt recommend it, it will be very salty and that is not from your sweat...Skinoren is very salty tasting). It's really kinda hard to explain, you'd just have to try it. For you though, I think you should use Skinoren or Azelex during the day and Benzamycin at night. That shoudl be a good regime for you.

Yes you can use azelex and any retiniod and even BP in conjunction with each other. I had to stop using azelex because it was turing my skin very pale.

azelex in the morning, and the retiniod at night. Or you can use both BP and azelex at the same time for faster results.

no prob.

just make sure you all use Azalaic Acid last if you are using other stuff. Putting anything else on top of it won't do anything good for you.
