I have had a few issues with acne lately (caused by Differin) I have been applying this very liberally for the last two weeks and it seems to have helped - less inflammation and spots going away. I apply moisturizer before applying duac at night so that seems to help with avoiding drying out too much. I do not apply in the morning under make up as I find it doesn't work that well under make up. I am also taking minocycline to speed things along. I figure it will take a month to a month and a half to clear up.
I had high hopes for Differin .1% cream, they were quickly dashed. I used this cream every night for 6 weeks. I wanted to address wrinkles on my forehead and the occasional breakout. I had a bout with acne after coming off the pill 5 years ago so was a little weary. I should have NEVER tried this cream. After 6 weeks my forehead EXPLODED in zits. I would have maybe 2 zits a month before, and now it feels like I have gone back 4 years. I tried green cream before so maybe I will go back to that. If you are thinking of trying a prescription retinol, don't.
I am not really a huge foundation fan but this stuff goes on super easy and blends really nicely. Stays on all day and keeps shine at bay. I will definitely purchase again.
