My doc just bumped me up from .04% Retin-A micro to .1% today, and when I opened it, the texture of the content looked almost like a cream. It was vastly different form the .04% RAM which was semi-transparent and was lighter in color. The .1% was more opaque and had a thicker, creamier texture. Is this just the formulation of .1% RAM or is this a packaging mistake?

I think it's supposed to look like that. Just make sure it says gel on the package and it's probably fine.

yep the package and the tube definitely says MICRO and the ingredient list boasts about the glorious microsphere technology or some bulls***. But i just wanted to get some other opinions because the gel looked SUSPICIOUSLY SIMILAR to the cream I used about four months ago, and very unlike the 04% gel that I used right before getting bumped up...
should I go bother my pharmacy about this? i'm just worried.

If you're really worried about it then go to the pharmacy to make sure but it sounds like it's fine. I would say mine looks closer to a cream then a gel.
