This stuff is great but I wish it wasn't so expensive. I've used Retin-A liquid or cream and glycolic acid 7% every night for over 30 years, so when I started breaking out again,my derm said I just needed a change of meds. Epiduo burns, stings & causes dryness at first but wow, even my deep wrinkles are smoothing out after only a few weeks. I also take tetracycline 500mg once a day.

My derm paired this medicine along with ... Show Full Comment

I have been using this for about 3 weeks. In the first week it made my forehead really bumpy, I think it was because it causes the skin cells to turnover faster and brought all the yucky stuff to the surface. No side effects for me. No red,dry, or itchy skin. My skin is clearing nicely. You should try it. =)
