Game changer!!

5

I’m 6 weeks into using this and don’t want to review prematurely, but absolutely already see and love the results and I didn’t expect a change so quickly. My face is very oily and acne prone. I use liquid extra strength salicylic acid AM only & 5% benzoyl peroxide serum AM & PM. I’ve been using that routine of treatments for acne/oily skin for about 10 years and it kept my skin looking good, but not great. My oily skin started looking dull over the last few years and then I developed a bout of hormonal acne for a few months before starting this adapalene. I first started using this product every other night and for the first 2 weeks my face peeled a min/mod amount, it never felt irritated and easily washed off AM/PM and my face never felt dry/peeling throughout the day if I stuck with my AM routine. After about 2 weeks I was able to start using this 6 nights a week and one night off a week with an AHA mask that night and I’ve been doing that routine for about 4 weeks. My skin has never looked better. My hormonal acne dried up within the first two weeks and after everything healed my skin now looks so smooth and glowing. I still am peeling a tiny bit some mornings and my skin is still looking better each day. Areas that have been dull for years look so much more smooth and glowy and my acne has been very stable. I highly recommend adding this product into your routine or starting a routine based around this product. I wish I had started it years ago.

Solid

I still have acne, but I have noticed improvement / better control over breakouts using adapalene products. I find this to be just as effective as Differin, which seems to be considered the standard—but sometimes I can find this cheaper, so that's a plus.

Improving my maskne

5

I'm in my 40s and just recently started having really bad breakouts on my chin/jaw. Spot treatments weren't working so I thought I'd try this. As the product says, it's not a spot treatment and may take up to 3 weeks to start working. I've been using it a couple weeks and my stubborn patch on my chin is finally starting to calm down and I'm hopeful new pimples won't keep sprouting.

Doesn’t do much

2

I tried for several months hoping this would work, but it does nothing for me. Just makes my skin dry and flaky. Doesn’t clear up blemishes or prevent new ones. Maybe it works for others but not me. A good retinol like Skinceuticals is much more effective.

Unexpectedly Effective

4

I've read a bit about adapalene perhaps not being as effective as traditional tretinoin but didn't let that stop me, this product is priced and reviewed too well not to give it a shot. I do think this retinoid is effective and I'd recommend to anyone starting their retinoid journey. For best use I'd apply after moisturizer every two days and add days as you see your skin reacting positively, that meaning not red and inflamed, that is not the goal.

Really works!

5

Over the summer I broke out my really bad acne all over my face. I did research and found Adapalene helps with acne and so happy I purchased this. I’ve been using this for 5 months now and my skin is back to normal with only having the occasional hormonal acne breakout. This is a staple in my skin care

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.
