You can use Differin and the Paula's Choice BHAs together very successfully .... there's a real synergy between topical retinoids and BHAs.

Two possibilities here:

1) Use the BHAs in the AM and Differin at night, or vice versa.

2) Layer the BHAs under the Differin. Cleanse; apply BHAs; wait 30 minutes; apply Differin; wait 30 minutes; apply jojoba oil.

If you apply jojoba oil sooner, it may interfere with the absorption of the adapalene into your skin.

If you use BHAs followed by jojoba, you should still wait 30 minutes to give the BHAs time to absorb into your skin and exfoliate your pores.
