is retin - a supposed to make you oily/greasy?

Recommended Posts

I just started Tretinoin 0.025% a week ago.

I havent had any peeling, or hell any discomfort or dry skin at all.

First couple of days i used too much of it on my face but I'm back to using a pea sized amount.

Just used a gentle cleanser and a cleraphil moisterizer, and the medication makes me OILY/GREASY as hell. I really dont feel anything at all (peeling, epidermis thinning)

I've broken out a little but its not a big deal in contrast to how bad my face looks due to the shine of it.

Is this normal or is my medication too low a concentration, or am i just not reacting to it?
