i use differin as part of my routine... and my skin has had a huge improvement (but could be due to the other things i'm using too). I didn't appreciate differin until a couple of months after use. I think it is responsible for minimising the small blemishes I've had because I've noticed these to be worse when I don't use it...
I'm happy with using it...but possibly it alone wouldn't do much?

Differin did not work for me and only made matters worse--- caused whiteheads which I have never had before and it made cysts the size of tomatos.

Differin is working great for me I also use something else though for night... Differin I just use for the morning... I have notice though my routine is making my face dry. I am going to see what I should do about this.

I used Differin exactly as directed for over 5 months. It did nothing but give me the worst acne I'd ever had.
