I feel bad since I said how much I like the priori cleanser, but I do know that at first when I used it along with differin I was pretty red and irritated too, it took about 3 months for some of the clogged pores on my chin to come to a head and then finally go, the one thing that really helps is lots of moisturiser afterwards. I know it's a long slog, but it was the bp that had caused my skin to get so clogged in the first place, I had never experience acne like that, I had just started using BP for hormonal spots at my periods but it left me with rough skin and when I came off it all my pores seemed to clog and get inflamed, it took the differin month to clear them out, I guess what I am saying is that it might be purging or maybe the aha and bp combo are too drying and irritating for your skin. I really wish I could make this all go away, I know these feelings all too well! If you have any savings or spare cash and want to see a dermatologist sooner, I booked a consultation at a nuffield clinic, it was an experienced nhs dermatologist that I seen and his prescription was still free on the nhs, it cost me £100.00 for the consultation but was totally money well spent.if the thought of waiting is stressing you out too much. Honestly your acne is so not bad at all, you dont have any scars or deep cystic acne, once you find the right treatment combination you will probably notice a difference so quickly! stay strong, you've got through this before and you will again! these things are sent to try us xx

27 years old. Been suffering on and off acne for the last 10-13 years. Can't remember exactly when it started. My early twenties were probably my clearest, I think mainly due to birth control, finally thought I had cracked it last year, clearest skin of my life, but when you think things are going well it comes back to bite you! My skin has been going downhill since about September time 2012. I'd say the last few months have been the worst. Currently on Dianette and Differin since middle of June, I have a wee blog so will keep everyone posted.
Good to know you're not alone in all this.
