Alright guys, here's a little run down of myself. I'm 16 years old, fair skinned, and just started getting acne pretty bad this year. I'm a sophomore, and as a freshmen i had the occasional break out/pimple or two but nothing enough to worry me. Just this summer my skin FREAKED OUT and i started getting acne pretty bad (or i would say so at least) and i tried an array of different products.
AcneFree, over the counter Clean and Clear products, nothing worked. So i went to the derm and she told me to use Differin cream, take Minocycline, and wash my face with a Benzoyl Peroxide wash. I consulted with some friends who were also using Differin and heard some pretty good reviews. I started it all excited for my skin to clear up, and was totally bummed when 5 weeks later, no change. I had days were i couldn't even look at myself in the mirror, i felt so gross. I wasn't hanging out with my friends because they had such nice skin i just felt terrible around them.
Then two days ago, i was going to the mall with my mom and had a breakdown about it. She took me into Macy's, had the lady do my make up and show me how to cover up everything really well, which i was really happy about. Then we went to the Clinique counter, and purchased the 3 step Acne Solutions Kit. I immediately read the reviews, which most people said they saw a difference in 2 - 3 days! I'm stocked to use this stuff.
I started yesterday night, and am pretty impressed. I felt a pimple coming in yesterday, and it's already less red, smaller, and doesn't hurt as much.
I'm gonna keep updating every few days, leave comments and let me know if any of you used Differin, and what your results were, or if anyone used Clinique Acne Solutions, and what your outcome was from it.
