Using Differin .1 and curious about .3

Recommended Posts

I have been using differin .1 for around 8 months now, and use it religiously every night. I also use duac in the morning sometimes and as a spot treatment.

Originally I was prescribed the .3 but I came to realize the .1 was the only generic gel offered. My skin is doing ok, but not perfect or clear. I still have the .3 prescription, and wondering if people think there would be an improvement in switching.

Basically, is it worth upgrading to the .3 gel??

thanks in advance,

I only ever used the .1 gel, but my experience with Differin was only so-so. It, in combination with Doxy, got my acne down from moderate to mild, but did little after that point. It has been a couple years since I used either product, and while I've found something more suited to my skin...I think the danger with a higher percentage of Differin is that you might have a period of time where your skin will need to readjust. Just be prepared for that if you do decide to give the other level a try. =)
