I have used Tretinoin gel 0.025 in the past but it caused a lot of irritation. In previous studies, they discovered that Adapalene 0.1 percent is as effective as Tretinoin 0.025, but with less irritation, so I gave this a try as I have sensitive skin that is rosacea prone. Ive been using Differin for 4 months and I can confirm that this is definitely causing no irritation at all and has improved …Read more

I have acne prone skin and have been struggling with acne off and on since I was a teen. Now that I'm 40, I'm having to deal with occasional hormonal acne which is a pain to get rid of. I used to use Retin-A cream then switched to gel and both were very effective in clearing up my face and keeping the acne at bay. I then tried Tazorac gel which was a lot stronger but still very …Read more

I’m 37 and have been using acne.org’s BP gel for 15 years, with clear skin resulting. Since I’m getting up there in age, I thought Differin might be something to switch to, being it can help with wrinkles/aging skin.

I literally picked up a .5 ounce tube of this for $13, and started using it my first night only at night like instructed (and stopped my BP). I tried this for three nights …

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 …
