Over-The-Counter Retinol?

I'm a 23y/o male and have mild acne.. I've been hearing alot about over-the-counter retinol and wanted to give it a try.. i'm still reading about it but i wanted to know some peoples opinions on if it worked/didn't work for them and what they used...

I had a girl that swore on Green Cream and i was thinking about going with that but I just wanted to hear some other opinions?

thanks!

I have heard a number of people say they really like Green Cream - haven't used it myself though. I really like Vivant's Derm A Gel - it is an OTC retinoid that also contains lactic acid (which helps with skin exfoliation and product penetration). I have used it for about a year and a half and I really love the results I've gotten from it.

I ordered a sample of the green cream the other day.. i haven't tried retinoids yet, but I read on the green cream board that lots of people had better results with it than retin a because it's way less irritating

I used Green Cream on my mild acne and ended up with a facefull of cysts after a week. Avoid it, it's not worth it :(
