Retin-A and spf question

Im on my last tube of Retisol-A (tretinoin with sunscreen) and I can no longer afford to buy a new one because it can only be bought in Canada and I'm residing in the Philippines. Obviously, I put retisol-a in the morning because of the built-in sunscreen and BP at night.

My question is, If im going to replace retisol-a with retin-a, Can i use the retin-A in the morning too? Im hesitant to mix the retin-a with spf type of moisturizers..

I've not heard of wearing retin-a during the day because of the photosensitivity factor. You may need to alternate with using retin-a one night and bp the next night. If anyone uses retin-a during the day, hopefully you'll get a different response.

eta: I don't see why you can't use it during the day if you give it time to penetrate the skin and then apply spf moisturizer.

You're welcome. :) You taught me something. I didn't even know there was a topical retin-a with built in spf. That's pretty cool!
