    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.

    Oh my goodness! I have been using this product along with Aczone for about two weeks now. What a difference! As I entered my late 30's I developed cystic type acne around my mouth and hair line. It was terrible! Painful and irritating. I also had red scars all over from the old acne. No amount of make up seemed to cover it and I hated piling it on. Seemed to just make it worse to pile on ...

    Started using this in November 2014, my skin has been 100% clear for a few weeks now. Initially I had horrible breakouts, worse than I've ever had, and my skin was red, dry, and peeling. This lasted probably 1-2 months, and it slowing started clearing up and I was left with mostly scarring. In January is when I really noticed is clearing up and now my skin is breakout and scar free after 4 mon ... Show Full Comment

    I'be be on this for a while to treat acne and if anything its made either no difference or made it worse. My skin became extremely sensitive to the sunlight even being out less than 30 minutes in the sun causing bad burning for me which I have never had happen before taking. :(
