Differin Users
Nov 11, 2004
I have been on Differin Gel for over 3 months now, and am curious on how it has worked for other people. Here's some quick questions to answer, I'll answer them first.

1. What kind of Differin do you use?
Gel

2. How long did it take to see results, and did you get 100% clear?
After 12 weeks I am seeing pretty good results, about 95% clear.

3. Does Differin cause you dryness? If so, how do you deal with it?
Yes, I use moisturizer over Differin at night and also moisturize during the day.

4. Did your face continue to clear up after 12 weeks?
N/A - seems to be improving slowly but surely

5. Did you take any antibiotics while on Differin, if so were you able to keep acne away after dropping the antibiotics?
I am currently taking minocycline and have been weening off it successfully so far, we'll see what happens when I stop taking it completely.

6. Did you become immune to Differin after a long period of time?
N/A-planning to use for at least one year though

7. Rating of Differin (scale 1 worst - 10 best) and any comments:
I'd rate Differin 8/10, I think it's great for whiteheads and mild-moderate acne. It probably won't do much for cysts, and so far it hasn't helped with blackheads.
