My derm just reccomended this to me becauase my skin has been acting up a lot lately, and I already notice a major change after just 3 days!! My skin used to be very smooth with little problems. Dries my skin out a bit, so I can't use it more than once a day, or even once every other day. Def. reccommend.

I got this for $120 and had high hopes since the derm recommended it with high praises. Let me preface by saying I have rather clear skin but a few blackheads I was trying to get rid of. This product made me peel and even my finger I was using to apply it was peeling.
No change in blackheads.

I've struggled with diffuse small red bumps on my chest for years. My face loves proactiv, but this was too irritating for my sensitive chest skin. A dermatologist recommended Differin gel and gave me sample of the 0.1%. It worked miracles!! The bumps were gone and it didn't irritate my skin! The only issue is the price. My insurance won't cover the cost- they say I'm too …Read more

10/1: used all over on Sunday, and I've noticed redness, peeling, and overall tenderness. Currently only one pimple - all the rest is redness from past pimples. I will use every third night for now.
11/12: still not using daily! every 2-4 days depending on sensitivity; currently skin is fairly calm, a few clogged pores, and one under the skin bump on my forehead. I'm being …

I have occasional cystic acne and this is the only thing that helps. I use this all over my face 3 times a week and then spot treat. Amazing

My dermatologist recommended this to me when I was 13 years old and I've been using it every night since then. While this doesn't make my acne stay away (I guess I shouldn't expect that since I'm still 16 and hormones are still crazy) it does gradually help my acne go away. This summer, I tried to just forgo using any Differin on my face and use regular cleanser & …Read more

I absolutely cannot live without this product. I have been using it for probably about 4 years, and will continue to use it until my dying day. My insurance covers it, thanks to my awesome dermatologist, but I would pay full price for it if I had to. The first few months were annoying, as the typical flakiness ocurred, but after the "adjusting" period, my skin is soft, smooth, and …Read more

I loooove this product. I think it's God's gift to people with acne. I've been using this product for about 3.5 weeks and my skin has never looked better. It's not perfect, YET, but it's d*mn near close to it. My derm prescribed this product as part of an anti-acne regimen; Differin + oral antibiotic, topical antibiotic, Cetaphil cleanser, and Purpose sunscreen). To be …Read more

Used the 0.1%. Wish this had worked for me since it costs me $130 something! It initially cleared up much of my acne during the first two weeks and then it went downhill. I figured it was the purging stage but after two months, I just got more whiteheads instead, especially around my jawline and my right cheek, and they'll just stick around. Others mention Differin did well for spot …Read more

Differin ruined my skin. I simply wanted something to fade marks, and instead I have the worst breakout all over my face. Hate this stuff. It's been a week since I stopped using it and I'm still breaking out.
