Skin Care Review: retin a micro

by Shannon magee, yuba city, CA USA

Adverse Effects


This product ruined my face!

After 3 days of use my face was extremly red and itchy. I cut back to once a week but that was all I could stand. I finally went crying back to my MD who quikly change my to differin. Except I had to wait for my skin to heal from the retin A, because even water would burn it. It was so dry that it hurt to talk or eat. I had to go to work with my face looking like a cherry with zits (because it didn't help the acne). Unless you have no place to go for 2 weeks I would not recommend this treatment. I normally don't have sensitive skin. Using this product was a nightmare!!!
