Hey,there! I've been using the Retin-a Micro for about 3 months now. I am very happy with the results. I'm on the strongest dose and my skin has had no problems with it! I broke out for awhile,too. It purges your skin and gets rid of all the junk. I got very oily at first,too. Then it subsided a bit. I can still get oily after wearing my makeup all day. (I've always had oily skin.) Are you using anything else? I also use Finacea Gel twice a day. The combo seems to be working for me. I use Aqua Gylcolic face wash in the am. and oil-free acne wash by Neutrogena in the pm. This combo also seems to help get rid of the clogged pores on my forehead and cheeks. They are slowly going away!!! :cool: I've tried so many different combos of cleansers... :rolleyes: I think sometimes I am obsessed with my face!!! LOL I need to get a life! LOL Anyway, keep in touch and let me know what's working for you!

Hello :)
The glycolic acid face wash doesn't irritate your skin at all? I used to use it before going on retin-a (to combat wrinkles) but now i'm just using cetaphil. Also, what strength retin-a are you on? I've been using 0.025% avita (generic retin-a) cream and doxycycline for about 3 months now. I noticed a big improvement during the first 2 months, but since then, my results have sort of plateaued. I was thinking about going back to the doc and asking for 0.05%, but i wasn't sure if it would help.
