Day 7



For the first 2 days of using Differin I saw absolutely no changes in my skin. Then, on day 3, the area around my mouth began to flake horribly. On day 4, my eyes dried up and started flaking. On days 6 and 7 I started to break out on both cheeks, my chin, and my forehead. Mostly non-inflamed whiteheads, although there are a few red pustules on my cheeks and forehead. I hope this is the initial breakout that is associated with Differin. I'm not sure if it's normal to have the IB this early though.

For other readers who plan to use adapalene gel (or are using it now) I figured I would confirm that this is pretty much my exact experience. Day 3 my mouth area got super flaky and on the following day my eye area did the same. Then over the next few days i got some new whiteheads.

I liked reading your blog before i went on adapelene because it gave me an idea of what to expect.
