1 year 10 month update :)

For those who want to know I have been using Differin cream and BP. By accident of the pharmacy I am now using Differin gel apparently. I'll use this tube and see how it goes. First impressions are good. My skin feels leas dry and flakey but I don't know if that's from the gel (unlikely) or starting to use Cetaphils moisturiser. I heard everyone rave about Cetaphil but it's so hard to come by in the UK but my local drugstore has started stocking it and I am in LOVE!!! Here's a little photo update, my skin feels and looks so healthy instead of red and scarred. MASSSIVE icepick scar reduction on my cheeks has happened, only a few are visible even in bright light. Didn't think Differin wpuld get rid of them but I am over the moon. Got a couple of teeny closed comedones on my chin, only visible when I stretch the skin out but I would rather they would surface so I can get rid haha!

Your skin looks beautiful!!  I am so happy to hear that differin has worked so well for you. I just finished 3 months and down to one bump and mainly post inflammation hyperpigmentation. Quick question, did the differin helped in fading the redness and acne marks?

Yes but it took a lot of time I am afraid. Obviously this is just my personal experience but it took best part of a year to get my marks to die down to unnoticeable levels, however I am realllly pale so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it?!
