Question Your Vote Counts...Retin A or Retin A Micro?

Ok guys, please list which Retin A or Retin A micro you are using, and it's strength, and it's form(gel or cream). I've used retin a .05 cream for a long time with no bad side effects and was just given samples of the Micro one. Should I switch? Cast your vote! Thanks, D

If you're having no bad side effects, then why bother switching? I'm currently using normal Retin-A (the weakest strength, I believe .025??) and as long as I don't use any other topicals with it, then I don't have any side effects either. I've never tried micro, but I woudl say don't mess with a good thing.

I have used Retin-A... I liked the Retin-A Micro better.

Gave better results, and it wasn't all greasy

I have used both in my 10 year battle with acne. I have all varying degrees of Retin-A and am currently using Micro Retin-A .025%. The side effects for Micro RetinA aren't as bad as regular Retin-A. I actually miss the peeling and shedding effects of regular Retin A and am considering going back to it. I know it's all psychological but I want to see my face shedding all that old skin.
