The same thing has happened to me (I am on the cream not the gel) I have noticed that my skin gets a little more oily than usual but I just use blotting papers throughout the day and that helps.

Its a bit too early to tell ( Today is the 1st day of my 3rd week). I use the Retin A 2 nights ina row then skip the 3rd night. I started out by using it every night and found that my skin was getting irritated and I started getting new pimples. That is what is supposed to happen though because it brings all of the pimples under the surface to the top. I do see a difference in how long the pimples last and it is fading the red marks somewhat. I am going to stick with it though. My derm said that it is going to take months to see true results and I am to go back to him in 3 months so he can check my progress.

I've been using the same recommended amount in cream form for almost 5 weeks now at night. At first, my skin was "glowing" and didn't seem to necessarily be oily. But as of last week, I started to break out terribly AND I am an oil slick. I wear very matte makeup and even that makes me look super oily. I also tend to be flaky near my breakouts, but generally oily all over. I have to soak up the oil about every hour with powder (BM mineral veil). I am getting pretty frustrated, but my cousin was on this treatment for 7 weeks when she got her horrible breakout/oiliness, but then her face cleared up and she has been zit free for 6 months. I guess I am going to stick to it, but yea, my face is terribly oily as well and it's funny because it's supposedly supposed to control oil production. I, personally, have never been so oily in my life!
