TRETINOIN: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Acne: “I started using this for adult acne. But been on it a little over one month. Noticing a persistent age spot has most definitely started to fade. I did not experience any purging or worsening of acne as I was warned. It does take the oils out of your skin. The places which were on my face when I started have all gone. The extra benefits of clearing up my face is wonderful. The first couple of weeks my skin was really peeling. Now my skin seems to have adjusted. I always use the cream at night then moisturizer + sunscreen every day outside to keep the results I’m getting. Oh and remember don’t put Retin A on your damp face, for some reason it’s so much worse on peeling and itching if you do. I am using a very small amount like the size of a pea. Overall I’m very pleased and plan to continue.”

For Acne: “Honestly, my pimples are getting worse, bigger & more red. My skin burns and itches so baddd! I can’t even handle it. This isn’t doing anything for my face. Someone commented on here saying to just keep going & that it will make your acne worse for the first 3 MONTHS then it gets better. Are you kidding me like I have that long to wait & let my face look hideous with more pimples. I have a wedding in 7 months. I’m just gonna make an appointment for laser duh, should’ve known no acne medication I’ve EVER gotten from a “dermatologist” ever worked for me & I barely have pimples. No doctor can help me, seriously this is a joke. If Kim K. had pimples & went to a doctor I’m sure they would give her a product that actually works. Drs are nothing but scams. It’s like they hate for you to look good cause you’re a pretty girl.”

For Acne: “I have suffered from acne since I was 12 years old. Now a junior in college, I still had bad breakouts from my period and acne scars from over the years. I decided to visit a dermatologist and she recommended Retin-A. At first, my skin peeled from use every other night, but I decided to use it 3 times a week instead and it helped my skin from the burning/peeling and was still able to get my skin cleared up. I use Cetaphil cleanser every day in the morning and night then tone my face with witch hazel (super good on the skin and does not burn) and finish off with Shea Moisture problem skin moisturizer. Vitamin E oil also helps with the minor peeling if you are experiencing from Retin-A. It has been 4 months and my acne scars have cleared up, I do not have any pimples, and made my skin a more even texture. However, I have noticed that it has lightened my face a bit since none of my foundations no longer match my current skin tone.”

For Acne: “I am just at the beginning of my journey. My face has been broke out terribly for over 2 months which really affecting my self confidence. I really hope through all the reviews I have read that this will help. I’m 37 and have had acne problems off and on for years. I’m ready for a long term solution.”

For Acne: “So I never write reviews unless I absolutely love or hate a product.. now Tretinoin .025 is my life saver. I went to the dermatologist because my skin was so bad I didn’t want to go anywhere and I was at a point where I didn’t want my own husband to look at me. But I started retin A (tretinoin .025) and for the first 3 months my skin got worse and these reviews are what got me through it JUST KEEP GOING I never thought I’d be the one saying this but I have CLEAR skin now .In the beginning it burned to put it on but I stuck with it and used a fan as I put it on. Here is the regimen in order so you can achieve moisturized skin 1.deep cleanse (wash makeup off) (night) 2.cleanse (fragrance free oil free)3.TONER (don’t skip) (witch hazel) 4.tretinoin (night only)5.the ordinary hyaluronic acid serum (Pat on don’t rub) serum moisture surge7.moisturizer fragrance free oil freeI know it’s alot but it’s worth it.”

Retin-A (tretinoin) for Acne: “Hey guys!! I started using retin-a 0.1% two years back but within a month my skin became very dry i stopped using it though there was no other side effects. But after reading comments here I got inspired and got courage to use it again. So I have started to use it again and hoping that it will work for me as well. I’ll leave an update my experience soon..”
