Skin Care Review: Retin-A-Micro

by Carolin Swetland, Clearwater, FL, 33761


It is good at reducing acne of you use it everyday.

It dries out my skin and I have to use it everyday for it to work.

I have mild acne on my face and severe acne on my back. I use the .1% strength on my back and the .5% for my face. If I remember to use it everyday, it works wonders on my back. I am not sure if there are side effects for it there because i can't really see but i know that my back can be all broken out and it will almost all go away in a week if i use it everyday. I haven't perfected using it on my face yet. I have really dry skin so when i use it, it makes it even more dry. When i put on a moisturizer (with SPF) every morning it stings after i have used the Retin-a cream. I have found to put it on in the evening after washing my face is best. Then, i put on a moisturizer later that night before i go to bed.

Overall, it is a good product if you can get past the side effects.
