  1. My skin has improved vastly since being prescribed the generic version of Retin-A and I am quite pleased with my results so far. I plan to continue to use tretinoin for 6 more months before checking in with my dermatologist again.
  2. Thank you for the tip! I have severe comedonal acne on my cheeks, temples and chin (a bit more severe than the OP, I have pictures in my gallery of my semi-improved skin) and I'm currently using .05% tretinoin cream. I was actually considering seeing an esthetician before I was prescribed tretinoin, but I'll definitely try it now!

    Not great

    Not great

    This foundation settled into my pores so quickly and highlighted them, making me look unsightly. I would love to use this when my skin is clear because it requires a minimal application and I don't have many dark marks to cover.
  4. Best Foundation EVER (for me, at least)!

    I love this foundation! I mix it with a Garnier gel moisturizer to thin it out (so that I use less) and it's so pigmented that it doesn't lighten! It doesn't affect the texture of my skin (the main issue) unfortunately, but if I get any dark spots, it covers them easily.
  5. Definitely gentle!

    This is a great cleanser, especially for no-makeup days. It takes off all of my eye makeup but doesn't overdry my skin like other cleansers do. I pair it with my Clarisonic Mia 2 to take all of my makeup off. I'm using tretinoin, so my skin is sensitive to cleansers at the moment and Cetaphil is a lifesaver!

    3rd Week on Tretinoin!

    I've had comedonal skin since I was 13. I tried Salicylic acid and even The Regimen, but neither the BHA nor the benzoyl peroxide could clear my skin. I received tretinoin .05% on July 8, 2014 and have been using it ever since. Today is the 31st, so I have been using it for 23 days. It's bringing the contents of my blocked pores to the surface, but it'll take a few more months to see results. I'm pretty hopeful! Here's the condition of my skin today.
