Tretinoin Cream also known as Retin A

So I did see some review on this cream. I actually got mine through a prescription but I have it on my face right now and so far no irritation. I am also taking Doxycycline an antibiotic. I am very excited to be using this and I hope I will be getting some GREAT results.

I just wanted to know if anyone had any bad experiences from this?

I've used it before - it seems to help with wrinkles and fine lines and even some scars, just a bit, BUT, I find that it can be quite oily (somehow!). and that it sometimes give me more pimples.

that said, I limited its use to around my eyes to help with fine lines. it works quite well.

Im on it right now, been on it for around 7 or 8 months I'd say. I actually have a log charting my journey with it.

You will notice in your first month an intial breakout because it will push out all the clogged pores. Overall, my skin is much better now than it was before Retin-A, it just takes time to see progress so dont give up.

Moisturize every morning and night or else youll be dry!
