I don't know about Differin specifically, because it isn't a true retinoid, but I do know that you can't have Retin A and BP on your skin at the same time because the BP will neutralize the tretinoin.

You can alternate the treatments: one at night and one during the day. Just be careful .... BP is very dehydrating. I would make sure that your skin was fully adjusted to the Differin before starting BP.

Thanks for the reply Queen of the Hills,

My skin is already adjusted to the differen, i have been using it for over a year and a half. Now i want to start using bp too, but i dont want to stop the differen because i think it has probably been helping me. However you have to use differen every night, so i dont know how i can go about using both... ?

thanks
