Re: Does Differin work?

It works a heck of a lot better than Retin-A or Tazorac do, but I just don't like how it sorta messes up your skin when you get off it.

I really wish I hadn't gotten into the world of creams, gels, and derms sucking my money, but it just sorta happened.

How long were you on it?

I agree. Chemicals in the creams that treat acne somehow make your skin even worse. The bad part is if you don't use it your face will get even monumentally more horrible. It's like cigarette addiction.
