Hey guys, I'm new to this site but i've been a creeper on the sidelines for many years - reading your blogs and trying to get advice .. I feel much better knowing that many people face the same hardships as I do with acne. I recently just went to a derm (the 6th one!) and he prescribed me Retisol-A 0.25% in the morning and Clindoxyl at night..

The retisol is apparently okay to use in the morning because it has a built in sunscreen unlike Retin-A.

I am a bit afraid to use it because of the horrible IB talks I see here.. my question is, HAS ANYONE TRIED RETISOL-A? If so please respond! :D
  • Wash my face with Cetaphil Cleanser
  • Wait 20-30 minutes then put on Retisol-A (Tretinoin) 0.025% [this cream has a built-in SPF and moisturizer
  • Wash face with Cetaphil Cleanser
  • Wait 20 minutes, put Cindoxyl Gel.

If my face is super dry I use Cetaphil Moisturizer before each medicated cream!
