Assuming they ship retin-a (tretinoin) to Londonthanks guys...but where can i get the Retin A 0.1% &HQ4%. i m in london...
Yes I use the gel. I've also read that it is better absorbed.Peri do you use gel or cream? I use cream now but read the gel is easier to absorb by the skin.
No I am serious. Speaking for my skin only. I've read others say the same.LOl--I just ordered the 1% gel from Alldaychemist. I will likely mix it out with moisturiser which is what I do now with the cream. I hope you are not too serious! You scared me now. I just ordered 15 tubes, considering the price of shipping I thought it best to stock up.
I have only ever used the cream. I did use differin gel because my ex-bf had it for acne and I thought it was good for wrinkles too. It made my pores like that of an Asian woman and I loved it but it wears off. I went back to retin-a and use only the cream so now I am going to the gel. I was told the gel was harsher or more easily penetrated the skin rather so I would assume it were stronger.I have and use both. I prefer the gel. I only use the cream when I want to do some serious damage- I mean serious peeling-
Yes I use the 0.05% gel. It's perfect for my skin.I just wrote to customer service and asked if I can trade those out for .05% gels and told them they can even charge more to add any uneven amount to make up for it (I assume this is the best way to get them to agree to change an order). I am actually considering doing what Madonna does and using it all over my body. She apparently uses 100's of tretinoin (retin-a) tibes a month-head to toe! Now that my skin is slowly recovering from the overexfoliation I think the retin-a may well help rebuild some thickness too. I would never use it straight but always mix it out.
Yep- I have Differin too-I have only ever used the cream. I did use differin gel because my ex-bf had it for acne and I thought it was good for wrinkles too. It made my pores like that of an Asian woman and I loved it but it wears off. I went back to retin-a and use only the cream so now I am going to the gel. I was told the gel was harsher or more easily penetrated the skin rather so I would assume it were stronger.
Yes, I alternate with the cream. And for times I need some extra attention on certain area's I use the cream more. Around the mouth, and the 11 area. On my neck I NEVER use the cream, just gel, and that I mix with a moisturizer.I am using Retin-A cream that I ordered from Medsmex. The 0.1% goes on my forehead (the only place that needs some directed attention) and the 0.05% goes on the rest of my face and on my hands. I use a diluted form of the 0.05% on my neck but not regularly - still too sensitive.
I still have a several tubes from the shipment but would like to try the gel next time, which means ordering from Alldaychemist. Do you gel users just use the gel exclusively, or alternate with the cream?
