    Before this I had a good amount of acne, it was red and noticeable. Then I visited my derm and he prescribed this to me along with aczone and doxycycline. It worked wonders. My face was flawless after 3 months, however along the way I was peeling, red, itchy all the side effects possible. But I pushed through and after 3 months I was 100% clear. USE MOUISTERIZER!! it'll help with the side effe ... Show Full Comment

    So I have comedonal acne (i think thats how you spell it) and its basically just a bunch of little bumps all over my face. It's super annoying. I started with the cream, then .5, now I'm on .1. At first nothing happened then I started breaking out like crazy on one section of my face. This lasted for a couple weeks! I was depressed and upset that it wasn't working, but now its actually ...

    I have been struggling with acne since my teens. My acne cleared up for a few years but I started breaking out badly around my jawline. I tried everything to help clear up my skin and nothing worked. I finally went to see a dermatologist 4 days ago and she gave a sample of Tazorac and ACzone. I have been using both, ACzone in the morning and Tazorac at night and my skin has cleared up so much in j ... Show Full Comment

    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
