    Differin Effective

    Well I'm on my 5th day of Differin and the results so far at the same as when I was on Tazorac but without the irritation, redness and peeling. I'm currently in the flare stage right now because my face looks horrible. I even noticed when I wash my face sometimes it smells like sulphur even though I am using no other products than a soapless glycerin bar to wash my face. Must be my skin purging everything out. I notice blackheads and blocked pores seem to be cleaning out. So, I would expect amazing results with Differin. And I"ll most likely keep with it due to little irritation. For those of you with mild cases use this med... Deal with the flare. It's basically speeding the process of all the unseen lesions bringing them to surface in the first couple weeks. After those heal you will get amazing skin. That's the results Tazorac gave me but, like i said, it irritated way to much and I always had a red face (I was also on the milder cream).

    Anyone else find Differin effective also (details please)
