2 months

Sorry for the lack of update. I was busy and kinda lazy... Anyways, a couple of days ago was the 2 month mark of using differin. My breakout has slowed down, I only get like 2 big pimples whereas before I would wake up with 10 on my face. But at the same time I still have enough pimples to make me feel extremely self conscious. I'm getting black heads on my chins which is really annoying. I don't apply differin there, only cetaphil cleanser and I think that's the problem. Since I'm on

I want to give up.

Sorry for the lack of update, it's been over a month since I last posted... So it's been about 14 weeks since I started using Differin. But I did make some changes to my regime about a week ago. Instead of using Nivea Soft Moisturizer I am using Clinique Moisture Surge. I think it has helped but barley. I'm still getting acne. My chin is pissing me off. I'm getting small acne there and I never had to worry about my chin before and now it's stressing me out. I'm not even apply differin t

10 weeks. ):

Oh my. I've reached 10 weeks and I'm definitely not happy with what I'm seeing. This shall be a brief update since thinking about my skin right now seriously makes me depressed. I honestly don't know if I'm seeing any results. I still have acne and new ones keep forming. The area around my mouth and chin is really frustrating. Like I said, I've been breaking out there and I haven't applied differin there at all. I have this bump on my chin and it's huge. Like you can't really see it but

About a week.

So I've been using Differin xp 0.3 gel for about a week on my face. I don't really know what to say...I'm not seeing any results but it's only been a week so I think I still need to give it more time. I'm just waiting and dreading for this "initial breakout" but it hasn't really happened...well sorta. I'm getting these bumps on my forehead (which is the only place I apply differin) so maybe that's a good sign? I read that is what differin is suppose to do, bring out all your pimples and shit. Bu

3 weeks

I've been applying differin for I believe, 3 weeks now. Definitely breaking out. There's more pimples on my forehead but they're not too bad, mostly small little bumps and an occasional white head. I'm even breaking out a little on my cheeks. The strange thing is that I'm breaking out a lot more around my nose and you can tell that the pores are bigger. I don't know what's up with that 'cause I don't even apply differin there... Anyways, other than that I can't really say that there's be

Intro.

Hello. So I'm new here and I decided to start this blog because hopefully somebody will read it and help them out for those who are using Differin XP gel 0.3 and I guess this blog is for me as well and to keep track of how I'm doing. I'm a teenager with moderate-severe acne. I've had acne since junior high and I've pretty much tried everything. I've been using Proactiv Solution for about 3 years and at first it was working great for me. Just last year I had clear skin but all of a sudde

7 weeks

So it's been 7 weeks and I'm still getting white heads and more pimples! Although those unexpected white heads that I posted last time are gone, new ones have come. Man, I seriously thought by then that I would see major improvements but not much. I'm still definitely breaking out...... When is it going to stop?! I'm feeling hopeless. I'm also dealing with scars...lots and lots of them which is not only hard to get rid off but makes me extremely insecure. I honestly don't know what I'm d

6 weeks - I need to stop picking my skin

Another week has gone by and I have to say that's been a real tough week. This week I've gotten red zits and big white heads on my forehead. What I hate right now is that I've gotten pimples near my mouth, especially on my upper lip, which on my opinion is the worse place you can get a pimple because it's so obvious! Yesterday I had this big white head right on my upper lip and it was so embarrassing 'cause I knew that people were looking at it. And you know what, I made it worse because I po

1 month

It has been officially one month since I've been using differin. I have to say that by this time I was hoping that my skin would have somewhat be clearer...yeah no Like I said, my face is definitely breaking out. What really sucks is that I keep getting red pimples on my cheeks. It's so obvious and I usually don't break out in that area. My forehead and between my eyebrows are getting bumps and more pimples as well. As I read from other peoples experience, apparently this is normal. I'm pr

5th week - more red zits!

I think my breakout is getting worse. ): I have more red bumps near the sides of my nose and more white heads on my forehead. Uggh, this seriously sucks, and tomorrow I have a party to go to. :\ I read somewhere that this initial breakout usually lasts between 2-8 weeks into it...so I'm pretty much right smack in the middle 'cause it's been 5 weeks since I started using it. I'm really hoping that once it's been 6 or maybe 7 weeks I'm going to start seeing results because I really hate m

I find like five new zits every fucking day on my face :(I hateee this, my skin is so bad right now and I just wanna hide until this ends! And I guess it doesn't help that I'm stressed for my midterms. :(Whoever is actually reading this, please give me some hope. I apologize for this pointless entry but I felt like bitching. -summer

2 weeks

So it's been a little over two weeks and my I believe my skin is starting to break out...it's not severe or anything but I'm getting bumps and some red zits, specifically on my forehead. I've changed the moisturizer that I use at night. I use nivea soft moisturizer and so far it hasn't been reacting with differin, or at least I don't think so. I still use cetaphil facial moisturizer with SPF 15 but only in the morning. also, I've applied differin on my cheeks now and it actually has somewhat cle
