Skin Care Review: Retin A Micro (for acne)

by Jessica Bently, St. petersburg, FL USA


gets rid of sun spots, eliminates and prevents acne, anti aging, skin brightening

Skin irritation, dryness, more prone to sun burn, skin sensitivity

I have used retin a micro for about 4 years now. I started using it for my acne and it worked extremely well! It got rid of my pimples AND made my scars go away faster. I also noticed that the retin a made my skin look better overall. My skin looked brighter, smoother and more radiant, and it gave me a nice rosy blush. Plus my pores looked smaller too. It was more like a miracle product but it also has it's down side.

My skin became a lot more dry and sensitive. I needed to use a daily sunscreen/moisturizer everyday or else my skin would burn pretty bad. And in dry conditions, using retin a was like hell. It made my skin even more dry and uncomfortable.

It's a great product, but it's harsh on the skin.
