    I was basically using it to control my extremely oily skin and occasional breakouts - it's all the time, all seasons. I was on Retin-A for almost 2 years before recently switching. Taz (so far) has been the best. It's only been a few weeks but I already notice a difference. Knock on wood, I haven't had the "purging" yet (bad outbreak before it gets better) - but I've ...

    Well, I just started this medication about 4 days ago, it's still early so of course I see no difference hardly. I'm taking this medication along with another topical medication and also I use a benozyl peroxide wash 2x daily. Tazorac really burns, badly, it feels like a bad bad sunburn, but beauty is painful right? Anyways, I think this will work, so I'm looking forward to the results ... Show Full Comment

    My derm prescribed this for adult acne. The results are amazing! I noticed a huge difference within a few days. The drawback is peeling & itching but if you use a good moisturizer it's fine. Totally worth it!

    Tazorac has been very effective for me in reducing my adult/hormonal/cystic acne...it has also radically reduced my fine lines around my mouth,eyes and on my forehead. My skintone is now even...no more blotchyness. The only drawback I experienced was the time my skin took to acclimate to Tazorac, about 6 weeks, before the redness,peeling & hyperactivity of blemishes subsided. This may be becau ...

    I have adult acne. Almost immediately the acne was gone, my skin is clearer, softer and looks healthy. Of course, no pain, no gain as the first week or two you feel as though your face is on fire. As you use the product more, the burning dissipates to almost nothing. I would use it even if it did not dissipate as the results are AMAZING and I'm extremely happy.
