cleared up body acne

5

I use this on my chest and back acne and it has made a huge difference. My skin looks amazing and both breakouts and post-inflammatory pigmentation are nearly gone. There was a very brief period where my skin got slightly worse, but that is a typical side effect of retinoids so I wasn't too surprised. But my skin never felt too tight or dry, and no irritation or peeling either. Love this stuff!!

Good beginner adapalene

5

This is my first adapalene treatment after using very gentle rentinoids for a year. It’s great at clearing up acne! I would recommend using it on top of a moisturizer, as even then it can be drying. I was able to use it frequently (almost daily, as I alternate my PM routine sometimes) and didn’t experience peeling or anything like that.

Not a spot treatment

5

Works after consistent use, so not a spot treatment. It’s an easy formula to use, smooth, a little goes a long way. I find the tube to be easy to get that last bit.

Amazing Starter Retinol

5

If you're new to retinol, like I was, this is a great gentle retinoid acne treatment. My dermatologist recommended going through a tube before going on a prescription retinol. I wore this every other night with moisturizer on top (like Toleriane or La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5). When I graduated to prescription retinol, I got another tube for travel or for friends who are starting on their retinol journey. Highly recommend for retinol newbies! And you can't beat the price and the reputation of this brand!

Outstanding

5

Nothing I have tried before has helped in my acne journey like this product has. I have been using this for almost a full year know so I can fully say this product is no joke. Of course like with all high strength retinoids, there is an adjustment period, and sometimes depending on the skincare you are using it with , pilling may happen. Everything else is top notch.

Great retinol

5

This is the best retinol I have tried - great for dry, sensitive skin. The price point is also a lot cheaper than those I have tried in the past.

Seems to help

5

I'm still in the first months of using this, so I'm hoping to see more results later on, but so far it was seemed to help with my acne.

Great retinoid

5

This was the first retinoid I every used and have been satisfied. I have normal/combination skin and my skin experiences minimal redness and dryness. I could see visible improvements in my skin tone. Would definitely recommend this product to retinoid newbies who don't want to go to the derm to get a prescription. Works great!

Learning curve

4

When I first started using this my normally oily skin became so irritated, sensitive, and developed dry patches that wouldn't go away. I stopped using it but learned than you can apply it over moisturizer. So now I use a pea sized amount on top of a thick moisturizer and it is so much better.

Better than Differin

5

The ingredients in this product are identical to those in Differin, but I prefer this product because it glides on much easier.
