Recommended Posts

What is the advantage of BP over differin? Why is everyone here using BP? Differin seems like a much better medicine.

They treat acne in very different ways, since Differin is a retinoid while BP is antibacterial. BP is available over-the-counter and Differin requires a derm's prescription, too. It's not that one is clearly better or worse than the other, as sometimes BP works well on people who have been using Differin with no results, or vice versa. If you're using Differin with good results, keep on doing that. The regimen is for people who want an acne treatment that requires no prescription but does a very good job of controlling inflammatory acne.
