Differin has worked really well for me so far. I used Tazorac .1% gel for 11 years, through my late twenties and thirties, and it helped with my hormonal acne as well as anti-aging. It became too expensive for me to continue however, as I turned 35 and was no longer able to get it covered as a primarily anti-acne treatment. For about a year I decided to stop all retinoids and see how my skin …Read more

This is blowing my mind. My cheeks used to be where I put on alot of concealer because it's where I had identations and dark marks. I used Differin because I was having acne mostly on my chin but decided to follow it and put it alll over my face. After a week of use, my cheeks were lighter and the tone is better. The indentations have seemed to lessened like almost non existent. While for …Read more

If you suffer from hormonal acne, try this if nothing has worked before going to the big guns. Based on what I’ve researched from infinite resources most acne is hormonal but I’m no scientist so I’ll refrain from stating that as canon. I’m a hound when it comes to information, I like to see both and all sides and the whole shebang before I try or give an opinion. After growing frustrated with …Read more

My derm originally prescribed me a topical with combined tretinoin and clindamycin. However, my insurance wouldn’t cover it so she gave me the alternative of buying Differin and using it in conjunction with prescription clindamycin. I had always been nervous to try Differin because of all the horror stories about purging. I also have extremely sensitive skin. But I was really fed up with closed …Read more

I've been meaning to review Differin for quite a while now.  I recently realized that Proactiv Md also had an adapalene acne treatment gel available, so I thought I would try that one out and compare the Differin to the Proactiv MD.  I've been using Differin as a breakout preventative for two years (once it became available without a prescription).  I was a little surprised to learn that the Differin and Proactiv MD products were literally identical.  Well, except for the price, Proactive costs $6 more. 

Both Differin and Proactiv are owned by the same parent company and made in the same warehouse in Canada.  So, save yourself $6 and purchase the Differin.  BUT if you are new to retinoid products (vitamin a, retinol, Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, retin-a …

I have been using Differin for about 8 months now. My skin is more clear now than I ever imagined was possible. I have had pretty nasty acne since about age 11. Before using Differin, I was able to get a lot of the acne under control by improving my skincare routine, but after the only AHA product that worked for me was discontinued, there was not a single product out there that could battle the …Read more

So this is a very premature review - I’ve only been using for a week - but I’ve already started to see results! I don’t have terrible acne, but in the last few weeks, my chin has been erupting with really big, deep, painful pimples (I think it’s hormonal??). So off I went to Walmart to find SOMETHING to help. Originally, I was planning on picking up some Neutrogena acne products and a face mask …Read more

A retinoid that now is available OTC in the US, this is a lightweight gel formula of 0.1% adapalene. In the UK it is still prescription only. It is effective for the treatment of mild to moderate acne, acting to settle inflammation, "loosen" sebum plugs, and more effective skin cell turnover. Some people will experience a purge in the first few weeks - I personally didn't, but it …Read more
