I am a teenager and this stuff is amazing. Your face will get worse after using it for couple weeks but your dermatologist should tell you that. Also acne takes a long time to get rid of.

Differin just didn't work for me. My skin got so oily and I broke out everywhere. It's supposed to get worse before it gets better, but my skin never improved. I still have scarring I'm trying to fix. I've had some friends who were successful on Differin though.
