    please help. retin-a or differin for blackheads?

    i currently use retin-a which i've used for many years. aside from my pores becoming really big, i have noticed that i'm getting a lot of blackheads on my nose and cheeks which has never really happened before. it seems that there was always a potential for blackheads, but the retin-a took care of it. i'm not sure if the retin-a is crapping out on me or what, but it seems that my acne is changing. i think i might recall someone saying that differin gel is good for blackheads. i've looked for an old post on it and can't find it. i have in my possession retin-a .1%, .05%, .025%, micro samples, bp, differin gel, and b5. right now i'm on b5 (just started) and retin-a .05%. can someone please tell me if the differin is better for the blackhead situation than the retin-a products? i think i'm going crazy.

    I've only tried differen, so I don't know if it's better than anything else, but it does clear up blackheads fairly well. They're not all gone tho.
