Post Differin???? Benza??

Okay i just went to the doctors and when looking at my face this is what he told me to get...

1)Differin (adapalene) 0.1 cream
- for morning use. i leave it on all day.
2) Benza Clin (clindamycin-benzoyol peroxide gel
- for night use. rinse face and then apply
to have on all night.


These ae the two products he told me to use, I have just start using them today... Has anyone had any exp. with these products or these methods???

I will post tommorrow to tell you all how my first day went. Then a weekly update.

Thank you.

I use differin at night, what does it feel like having a cream on your face when your working or at school all day? Right now I have clindamycin gel on my face for mornings but i dont notice it too much

I use both of these meds - but I was told to use twice a day and when I did, I got really dry.

I currently use both the differin and the benzaclin together at night before bed. The benzaclin is GREAT as a spot treatment if you have a pimple that's formed - just leave it sitting on the pimple overnight and the thing is practically gone by morning.

Yuck, I remember having to use stuff in the morning...I didn't. Creams make your face greasy throughout the day. Clindamycin leaves a film and differin makes you shiny. Benzaclin is the best because it at least dries...even if your face is crusty looking. Blah.

Using the cream for the morning isn't bad at all... Feels like nothing is there and if anything makes my face softer.

Im not sure what you did cried. All skin is different, because my skin doesn't act like that I am about to put the Cream on now.
