Mandelic acid with retinoid?

Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon/Evening/Morning all

I have been using Differin 0.1% for approxminatly 4 weeks now and have seen little improvement (early stages).

I've ordered some mandelic acid serum 10% and was wondering where to fit it in. Would it be more affected applying at night than the morning?

Furthermore, i am aware that using a cleanser would be better than not using one, so could anyone point out a really gentle one that is oil-free and has little or no salicylic acid in it.

just to be clear on what i do:


Wash face with cool water

wait 30 minutes

apply Duac gel


Wash face with cool water ^.^

wait 30 minutes

apply differin .1%

wait 30 minutes

apply neutrogena oil-free moisturiser

i apply the duac on my acne only. The duac is near useless for blackheads, so could i fit in the mandelic for the blackheads in the AM or before i apply differin in the PM?

Thank you for reading.
