Hey guys! cool.png 

I'd like to know if Retin A is stronger and more effective than other products which contain the same active ingredient, tretinoin. 
Well, i've been using this tretinoin cream called Acretin for around 3 months now and my pimples and redness have reduced significantly. Two days ago, i switched to Retin A as I had this psychological tendency to think that Acretin isn't as effective as Retin A. By the way, both products are 0.05%. The two creams smell and look the same but I guess I cant judge it based on appearances. I'd like to know about your experience and opinion. 

Thank you,

If you use Retin-A Micro though, it will be significantly less irritating (but no less effective).
