No, azelaic acid isn't a retinoid. It works differently. It does help somewhat with clogged pores, but probably not as well as retinoids do. Its really good if you are prone to inflamed acne though, because it is also antibacterial and antiinflammatory (and also reduces redness). However, if you mostly have noninflamed acne, I would think that Tazorac would be the better option.

Not sure if I should continue using it while I'm using Tazorac. Both peel your skin so that might be too much for my face. It says that Finacea also bleaches the face and not sure if I want that.
