Well, Retin A has certainly left my face bumpy. If I run my hand over my face it feels like an orange peel. The texture makes it difficult when I apply my makeup. My cheeks have been red from the application. I haven't missed a day of treatment yet which is good. Hopefully my skin will tolerate it pretty well because my skin has a tendency to blister when using retin a. I've used this product before so I am not disillusioned when the directions say to use a pea size or a half inch of the product. I used to use way more than the directions since I felt it wasn't covering my face enough and I was really blistered; it looked like I was a burn victim. Anyways, I won't be seeing results for another 3 months so you have a long time to watch my slow, painful progress.
