So it has been two months since I started using Differin® Gel to help control my acne.

For years, I have struggled with problem areas on my face, particularly in my hairline and jawline. Stress was a major factor in my breakouts, but hormonal changes could also trigger a breakout. It was not only embarrassing, but it was also frustrating.

Over the years I have tried different washes, creams, and gels with only marginal results. It was time to try something different. It was time to try Differin® Gel.

In the past, Differin® Gel was only available as a prescription, but now it is the first and only prescription strength retinoid now available over the counter for clearing and preventing acne. After 30 years, Differin® Gel is changing the OTC acne industry.

Differin® Gel is different than any of the spot treatments I’ve tried in the past. To get the best results from Differin® Gel, it is best to use a thin layer all over the face once a day, every day. Please use caution when using Differin® Gel with more than one acne treatment or glycolic acid product as this could lead to irritation.

Differin® Gel works by clearing breakouts where they start (deep in the pores) preventing breakouts before they begin, and as a result, restores skin’s texture and tone.

  • During treatment, it is important to continue cleansing and moisturizing your face.
  • It’s important to remove your makeup and wash your face both at night and in the morning using a non-irritating, non-drying cleanser such as Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser.
  • This will remove any dirt your skin has accumulated during the day.

Using Differin® Gel

Using Differin® Gel was really easy. After preparing and cleaning my skin:

  • I applied a thin layer of Differin® Gel all over my face and onto the problem area under my chin.
  • I did experience some mild drying of my skin during the Differin® Gel treatment, so I used Cetaphil® Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 to help with the dryness.
  • I kept applying Differin® Gel daily so I could get the full effect of its acne-fighting strength.

I am so excited that I was able to find a product that would help control my acne. Now I can feel confident to go without makeup and not have to worry about embarrassing acne.
