retin a mirco oiliness

Recommended Posts

Retin-A Micro made my face a LOT oilier than before...I was literally dripping with oil. It was really disgusting. Although I could see it beginning to unplug my pores, I could not tolerate that level of oil!

Retin-A Micro initially made my skin very oily and made it look worse because of a few breakouts. But now I'm on my 6th week and my skin is looking the best it has looked in 4 years. Stick with it for at least 8 weeks before giving up.

Awful, rancid stuff for me so far. Continually broken out, flaky AND oily at the same time (figure that one out!?) I think it's really weird that on the insert (or perhaps the Retin-A Micro website) it actually states that the medicine helps reduce the oiliness, because it's pretty obvious that it doesn't do it for most people. Sucks, dude.
