For me, this product did take some time to get used to as well as see results from but I am very happy with it so far. I had a little irritation at first, but it went away after the first two weeks. When I did have irritation it was best soothed by using less products on my face and sticking to all natural remedies like olive oil. I highly recommend to anyone as my skin has never been better but r ... Show Full Comment

Was prescribed tazorac for acne on my cheeks. The condition worsened and it caused nasty pimples on my forehead to come out which I hadnt had a problem with prior to use. Tried to stay on it but just couldn't do it.

Too strong for me. If you follow the usage instructions and your skin is tingling and a little itchy that's okay, but if it is burning, red, peeling and tight like a bad sunburn discontinue use.

Comment:
Had very mild but persistent acne. Used Tazorac for 13 weeks, resulting in severe, cystic acne. Never had cystic acne before, maybe just a coincidence. This was 3 years ago and I still have to be on an antibiotic to keep skin clear. Wished I'd never heard of Tazorac.
