Description

Unlike other acne treatments you can buy in stores, Differin contains the first OTC Rx-strength acne-fighting retinoid. Retinoids play a crucial role in the treatment of acne by regulating skin cell turnover & reducing inflammation deep in the skin to clear & prevent pimples. What makes the retinoid in Differin (Adapalene) so cool is that, unlike other topical prescription retinoids, Differin is gentler on your skin, while still effective — and you don’t have to do things like completely avoid sunlight forever!

Then apply a thin layer of Differin Gel once every day all over your face — even when you’re not breaking out. Differin Gel might take a few weeks to start to work, and during this time, you could experience some dryness and irritation while your skin gets ready for gorgeous. The retinoid in Differin Gel may take a few weeks to work, and it may seem like it’s getting a little worse before it gets better. But, like your old track coach used to say, “You just gotta push through it!”

When used every single day, Differin Gel can reduce up to 87% of acne in just 12 weeks. That’s about the time it would take to leisurely binge-watch your favorite old TV series.

I feel like my skin is improved the morning after using it the previous night. I use a pea sized amount about twice a week, and I love that it helps with anti aging as well as my minor acne that pop up now and again. One tube lasts a long time and it spreads well also.

I use the Differin daily refreshing cleanser and then apply my Differin gel. I use a light moisturizer and this combo keeps breakouts minimal. I used to have to buy a membership to an expensive brand and I’m so thankful for Differins price and availability.

This differin gel is nothing short of Amazing when it comes to clearing acne. I have very sensitive oily skin and tend to get hormonal acne with occasional cystic acne. When I feel a pimple coming on I put some of the gel on it before bed and by morning it is already going away. This gel has saved me from actually getting a “pimple pimple” in over a year since I stumbled upon it. It has also helped my teenagers tame their breakouts. Fragrance free. Would repurchase

Worked Better for My Acne than Tretinoin!

I love Tretinoin for anti-aging benefits but Differin Gel was what cleared up my acne. This stuff is AMAZING. Like, I'm shook lol. My skin is super accustomed to strong products so I didn't experience the side effects some folks did (dryness, etc). I do feel it "working" but it's not uncomfortable as long as I exfoliate, tone (alcohol-free), drink lots of water, and moisturize well day and night. I'm pretty shocked how well it worked - my skin looks incredible.

Our family swears by Differin. Once our oldest saw a dermatologist to get his acne under control with lots of medications, we were able to use this instead. My daughter is now going through pop up acne and loves how quickly it works.

I have been using this product, this is the 2nd tube that I’m using now. I used the lot of stuff, they’re all expensive stuff but they didn’t help me with the acne. But DIFFERENT does help me a lot. My skin got a lot better now. I’m glad that I found it, I wish that I found it sooner.

Differin is not like other acne treatments. It really targets acne and prevents new formations. My acne us mild, so it took a few weeks to 1 month to clear it, but I keep using it to prevent future acne. This does not irritate my skin like other acne treatments do. I also like that it's oil free, fragrance free, and alcohol free. Please keep making it

I have struggled with acne for forever. I’ve had all types of acne but most recently I noticed that I had tons of closed comedones on my face. After TONS of research, I learned that Differin was a great option for getting rid of the comedones. I started using this in April, it’s now August and it has done WONDERS for my skin!! I was hesitant to try this because I didn’t want things to get worse before getting better, but I was lucky that my purge was very short lived. Probably less than a week. 95% of the comedones are gone and I haven’t had a pimple since June!!! If you’re looking for something to finally work, TRY THIS!!!!

I don’t usually breakout anymore (due to birth control and being in my 30s) but I’ve been breaking out badly on my chin lately. I have tried many things including the new little pimple patch things. I finally bought this, I used this once before bed and woke up to ALL of my acne being cleared up. My skin was not over dried and felt great. This is my new go to product!
