  1. Im in week 5 and i never had any breakout.....well, a few bumps here and there and since using retin a i have no longer been getting those big nasty whiteheads.....all are small. So overall, this works great and i cant wait to see full results....maybe i am lucky and avoided the side effects :-/
  2. Im halfway into week 4 with Retin-A and I have experienced absolutely no big breakout. My acne is actually clearing rather than getting worse, which I expected. So to me Retin-A is alrdy working it's magic and i love it.
  3. Im on Week 2 Day 2 of my retin a micro. At the moment I am totally clear, which is weird. But when i started i had a lot of pimples forming into whiteheads and i prolly have had about 16 zits over the past 2 weeks, but they're all gone now. Anyways, i am experiencing onlym ild redness from the retin a and no peeling (except on the nose). Also, there is no dryness. I am liking retin A right now and really i think it's just right b/c my acne has been VERY mild over the past few months and thi
  4. Well, this is a retin-a micro question. I have been taking retin-a micro for 2 weeks now and was informed that dryness/peeling may occur. I expeected at least some dryness, but instead my facei s more oily than ever. Maybe i am just lucky and am not experiencing any of those side-effects from it but it is weird how my skin is not the least bit dry. Can anyone tell me what's up with this? Posted this on personal regimen logs but meant ot post here

  6. Dang, well, it looks like I'm starting my breakouts alrdy. I have a lot of whiteheads now and i am just not through week 1. Do you think that my breakout phase will stop sooner since i have started breaking out a lot alrdy? also, when u apply this is ur face kinda oily looking? I know my face looks shiny hours after applying retin a....like tonight i put it on at 8 and it is looking oily right now. Also, my face isnt dry during the day. Anyways, overall it looks like im getting pimples in ma
  7. sounds like a cyst......and that's in a bad place too
  8. Yes, Im on Retin A Micro .04 I dont think I'm using too much......i am not seeing irritation (redness in skin and such) when i apply it. When I wake up, my skin is not dry at all, which is weird. It almost looks oily when I wake up.....but it could be dry and i might not realize it b/c BP really dried my skin and i used that for a long time and retin a might not dry as much. I dont see any flakiness yet either. And ya, all the pimples, well, like 4 of em the other day, have been forming ar
  9. Ok nappy, i got another question. I've been on retin A for 4 nights now and am started to see way more breakouts than b4. When I used just BP I could keep my skin to 2-3 active pimples at once. Since starting Retin A i now have more, but they seem to come and grow quickly.....all of them forming whiteheads. I get em in places i usually never get zits either. Could it be that retin A's breakout is alrdys tarting to kick in? I must have had like 8 active pimples on my face today which is many
  10. I get mine waxed every 2 months (im a guy and if i dont i grow a unibrow.....but i have em tough up my eyebrows and shape em a bit, but not girly). IT doesnt hurt at all to me....i am so used to it. Only problem i have with it is when i have acne right on the brows and it hurts like a sucka when they wax and dont realize they've popped a zit
  11. That doesnt look severe to me and it looks like a lot more red marks than pimples
  12. So can I use BP in the morning? like dans regiment while onr etin a?
  13. Nappy.....how much do u use on ur face at night? Im about to go pick up my prescription and am just curious on how much retin-a u use to cover ur entire face. Also, how do u urself apply it
