Skin Care Review: retin-a micro

by Anonymous, TX

Adverse Effects

Retin-A micro gel cleared up my moderate acne skin.

Skin becomes really sensitive and peels.

The Retin-a micro did get rid of the moderate acne that i had. It did however irritate my skin extremely.My skin peeled and was really sensitive to the sun. Even with SPF15 on i could tell whent the sun was shining on my skin. It would burn, and i never burn. Also I could not work out because my sweat irritated my skin and left a burning sensation when the sweat was on my skin. Even washing my face with Purpose irritated it. only cold water made it feel better. i have pretty sensitive skin though. I had to stop using it because my skin is too sensitive. i used the Cetaphil Moistruizing Cream for the peeling. It really works. Good luck to ya'll!

I would not use it again but if you are willing to go thru the pain then it works
