Wish I'd used it sooner

Until I started using tetinoin creams my face was horrible, and I wonder why no doctor recommended to me sooner. I've been on antibiotics and I've used so many over the counter treatments but tretinoin really did it for me. I still have acne, but it took it from severe to moderate and now I can chip away at it with other tools. I used this brand and it was great, however they have stopped making it and went I needed a refill I got given a differently branded one, which I mean really it acts in the same way just doesn't feel as nice.

I am writing this review after 2 and half years of using a tretinoin .025% cream (not stevia brand, but for some reason would not let me review the general brand. But I wanted to leave a review for anyone out there that may be feeling like nothing is helping like I did for a very long time.) For the first year, I applied the tretinoin cream by itself after waiting 30 minutes to dry and my skin was an absolute disaster. However, I have extremely dry, sensitive skin. So one day I decided to apply moisturizer before the tretinoin and it has worked wonders. Yes, I still break out occasionally, but it is NOTHING like it used to be. I used to have dime-sized, red, inflamed pimples all across my forehead and now when I break out it is tiny and only lasts a couple of days. My advice is to get to know your skin and what it can handle. Obviously mine was becoming way too dry and broke out more as a result, but applying the moisturizer before the tretinoin was the fix. I hope this can help anyone as I know I looked at reviews religiously when my skin was at its worst. Years later, I have nothing but positive things to say about this cream.

tretinoin 0.025% cream
I have used this brand for a little over 5 days. I have noticed some minor burning and peeling. I just started using a moisturizer AFTER rather than before it, and that has seemed to help. I was a little worried after reading a ton of tretinoin reviews that I would experience a "purging" period and start breaking out badly, but I haven't experienced that yet. So far my skin has been pretty even and smooth. I'm impressed, and will continue to use this product.

Retin a helped my acne
I was prescribed Actavis Tretinoin cream 0.025% and it has worked miracles. Nothing stopped my acne breakouts on my cheeks. They were horrible and red and we're leaving ugly scars. I couldn't take it any more. You need to stick to using it every night, nonstop. Within the first 2 month I saw great improvements. I struggled with acne since I was 17. I hate it. But this has made my skin so much better. I started using it age 24 and now 26 still use it due to it having rerun a. Helps with preventing wrinkles. I also started taking Tri Sprintec birth control. I recommend it. Stick with it for 6 months don't give up.

I didn't see any improvment using only this product. I stopped using it when I started to use 2.5 benzoyl peroxyde. After a couple of months, i started to use both products, and it showed great results.
