Multifunction Face Cream

Have on hand always, use when I have breakouts on my face, and nice to use as a Retin A cream at night.

Be patient, it works

I am pleased with the low price point of this vitamin A derivative, compared to retinol or even a retinol prescription. I have been using it for a couple months and never went through a purge period like others. I will keep using and have purchased a backup.

I decided to try this after so many reviews described it as more moisturizing than Differin. I didn't find it more moisturizing--just very sticky. I will go back to Differin when this tube is used up.

Works well

I’ve had cystic type acne breakouts all my life & am still having trouble into my 60s with at least a monthly problem. I’ve tried many products. I tried this product 3 months ago and no more breakouts of what I call underground pimples that won’t go away for weeks! The product goes on well & dries quickly. My only complaint is that it is a bit drying (I have sensitive skin) even though I use a face cream but using the face cream twice a day has helped this problem which is well worth it! I would highly recommend this product.

The Best Adapalene Product

I much prefer this to the Differin Adapalane Gel. The texture is a little more smooth, more glide on the skin, and absorbs a little more quickly. I have used two small 15 ml tubes of the Differin prior to this product coming on the market. I buffer this over moisturizer (La Roche Posay Toleriane Double Repair + Cicaplast Baume. I really like this one, and this brand; specifically the Toleriane range. I highly recommend this Adapalene because you can frequently get 20% off here on LovelySkin, and the texture is superior to Differin. These Adapalene gels are not identical.

Good Product

I've only been using it for a few weeks, mostly for some spots of sebaceous hyperplasia on my forehead. I think it's working. Some the spots seem smaller and the skin looks smoother. It is drying, though, so make sure to use a moisturizer. I use it every day with a moisturizer and I don't get flaky. If I forget to moisturize, I flake.

Better texture than Differin

I prefer this formula for Adapalene than the one in Differin. It absorbs faster and feels better on the skin. Also a bigger tube!
