I only "feel" pimples when I wash my face


This is a bit of a strange question.

Recently I have been noticing that I only "feel" my pimples when I wash my face...but my face feels smooth otherwise. When I put water on my face and then use the cleanser I can actually feel my pimples...but if I were to just randomly "feel" my face it's smooth.

I use Cetaphil gentle cleanser and differin.

Am I becoming "immune" to differin or is this something normal?

There are different types of pimples actually. What you are describing could be clogged pores or it could be acne under the surface of your skin. These are called whiteheads. I know it sounds silly, but maybe take a look at this and read about them.
