I have only used the cream at night and morning for almost a month now and it is working obviously well. It doesnt dry out my face one bit (shockingly!) and it feels as if i'm wearing a light mosturizer throughout the day. It is reducing the amount of pimples and time of them. If i break out, no later than 48 hours they will be gone.

It has been about 8 weeks since I started using Differin at night in conjunction with another topical in the morning. If you use this medication, don't apply it anywhere near the crevices of your nose or anywhere near your mouth. If the gel gets too close to my lips the skin around them peals horribly and is very painful (using Vaseline helps to relieve it). My skin is clearing up, especially ... Show Full Comment

I have been on Differin for six weeks. I apply it at night time and use it in conjunction with topical Duac and Nicomide the vitamin. I feel like among the three prescrptions the Differin is the best at preventing future breakouts. I broke out a lot when I started taking it and now I am finally getting the clear skin I was looking for. It just had to fix all the clogged pores under my skin. So I g ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I've been on this for a few months now (I was on Tazorac for a long time prior to using differin) and it works well. It hasn't completely stopped my breakouts, but it does a good job keeping them under control and clearing them up quickly. I would also like to note that I am on 4 prescriptions for my acne (including the differin) so my results could also have something to do with the other ... Show Full Comment
