    I am using this medication for adult acne and hormonal acne. I have been using it for just at 3 months and there isn't much improvement at all. I am calling my dermatologist to request a change. It wasn't worth the money. should have insisted on Retin-A. Worked much better when I used it years ago. Trusted the new derm with something new. calling today to request the Retin-A.

    I have never written a review in my entire life but I just had to let everybody know how much of a life saver this product has been. I am 32 years old and I never had acne problems until I turned 30. I started getting a lot of pimples around my chin, then I started developing cystic acne. I would squeeze them only to find out that you can't and was scarring my face. After going to two differe ... Show Full Comment

    Was previously using Aczone and Epiduo regime but then skin started to break out again. My dermatologist switched it up to Aczone and Tazorac and my skin is great! As others have mentioned for the first few weeks/month your skin will be very sensitive and peeling, but I went through the same thing when I started with the Aczone. As far as it being expensive my dermatologist gave me a rebate card f ... Show Full Comment

    The bad: Expensive, skin gets worse before it gets better, sensitivity to sunlight, super dry skin The good: Gets rid of acne AND acne scaring!!! After the first month of two my skin transformed and now is as clear as it was when I was a child. The confidence I gained from my skin being near flawless is worth every single bad thing Tazorac has caused me.

    I have been using this product for about a week and a half. I have very oily skin and it has dried my face out (which is not a bad thing). It has gotten rid of my preexisting acne and caused some peeling. The peeling goes away if I moisturize regularly. I have had a couple new pimples show up, but, if this works like the reviews say, I am hoping it will go away when my face gets used to the produc ... Show Full Comment
