question?Can i get some feedback

Im 52,about 3 yrs ago i was using retin-a micro .01%.After a couple of months it cleared my face beautifully.My face stayed clear for about a yr,didnt need to cover with makeup just moisturizer.Then slowly my face started to really peel and get red.Almost like a burn mark on my chin.Got so red i was afraid it would leave a permanet mark.So i quit using it and switched to Differin.Differin worked for a good while but, lately new pimples been popping up.What im wondering is ,after i was on retin-a micro so long,do you think over time my skin could have become more sensitive to it and maybe i should try a weaker strength?The reason im asking this is im thinking bout starting using retin micro again.If it wasnt so darn expensive i would get a few tubes of different strengths ,to try too see which i can better tolerate.Has anyone had any luck with the weaker strength retin micro?Do you know if it will work as well as the stronger strength one?If i pick a weaker strength, will it take that much longer to clear my face then if i use the stronger kind?Thanks for any replies.
