I have extremely oily skin and enlarged pores in my T-zone. I also have mild acne on my forehead and chin. I have been on Retin-A Micro (.04%) for a little over 2 months now and I am disappointed.

Before using RA, my nose and forehead would get oily within about an hour of washing it/blotting. After RA, however, I have noticed something very strange. The oil is visible from each pore within 20 minutes of washing my face - and what's worse - the oil BEADS up on each pore. So my nose looks like it has a billion little stars sparkling under any light. I now have to blot twice an hour! Ridiculous!

Should I stick to the RA? I've heard some people say they didn't see results until after 6 months. I'm not sure I can wait that long!
