I've been using the CereVe PM and AM moisturizer. It is amazing. I use that along with the hydrating cleanser from CereVe.
I'm currently using Aczone in the AM and Differin .3 gel in the PM along with taking doxycycline daily. I'm getting flaky, dry skin all over my face but this stuff has improved my skin in a matter of days. The AM moisturizer also has sunscreen in it for protection. It burns my face (very briefly) when I first apply it, but I feel so much better after using it. I apply makeup about ten minutes after application and it goes on smoothly with no flakes.

Hi! I am also on Spiro and Differin. My insurance didn't cover the .3% gel, so I got the .1% gel, though.
When you start the Differin, to avoid any IB, use it every 2 days, then every other day a week or so later, and then start using it every night 2 weeks later. My derm told me to do it this way, and the internet forums confirmed, so that's what I did and I never got an IB. I think it's helping to reduce my red marks and make my skin softer overall.
The Spiro is going to take a few months to show real results. I've been on anti-androgens for 6 months now and my skin is clear. I was seeing good results at 3 months, though. I haven't had a bad cyst in 4 months. It's awesome. Keep with both medications!
