Adapalene = Differin

Yes, there are several people here on this medication and yes, it works for many. I use it and it works great for me. It cleans the pores and gets rid of comedones (blackheads and whiteheads). Will not do much (or anything) for already existing inflamed acne, i.e. pustules, cysts, etc. For this type of acne, you need BP and/or antibiotics. But it will proactively help prevent this type of acne, as it keeps the pores nice and clean.

Differin takes some time too...can take up to 12 weeks or so. And you must be consistent with it - don't "give up" because you don't think it's working and/or you experience the inital "breakout". This is temporary and should go away. I recommend this medication. Make sure you are applying it to freshly cleaned skin and apply moisturizer after you have given it a good 20 minutes or so to absorb. Should do the trick...good luck.
