Well, I used Proactiv for over a year, so I think my face has to get used to this new stuff. But it hasn't caused any breakouts from like battles of the Proactiv and Retin A Micro chemicals.

In the morning, I wash my face with Neutrogena Rapid Control Oil-Controlling Cleanser. It really does a good job of getting all the excess oil and dried skin off my face. My face usually oils up as the day goes on, so, sometimes I will wash again in the afternoon. At night, I wash my face again with the same stuff, then apply the Retin A Micro. After about 20 minutes, I can start to feel my face warming up. I look in the mirror and it looks like I am blushing all over. About 25-30 minutes after that, my face is oily as hell. I know it is just the Retin A Micro doing its job, so it doesn't bother me. I wake up in the morning and my face usually doesn't have much oil on it. I'm not sure if thats the way the RAM works or if its from my face being buried in the pillow all night or a combination. My routine starts all over again in the morning.

Today is day 15 and I have a few pimples in places where they normally don't pop up. In the closed comedone areas on my cheeks and forehead, there are a few red spots. I think its the RAM pulling the junk up and out. I have also noticed more blackheads popping up, like the RAM has pulled it from under the skin. Also, my forehead does have the white bumps (closed comedones) in the middle of it, and I hardly ever get red spots up there, but I do have about 2-3. The good thing about RAM is that these pimples dry up pretty quick. They were there yesterday and I can hardly see them today. Also, the white bumps on my face are starting to become more noticeable. I am pretty sure that is from them being purged higher to the surface so they can we dried up and washed away.

I'll keep posting....
