the differin from there is great too and if you have acne they have azelaic acid, benzoyl perioxide, salicylic acid 6% gel which is really effective I heard from someone who purchased it, they also have a ton of natural/herbal stuff to check out.

That's great but I'm glad that I no longer suffer from acne. I'm still looking at other ADC products like other topical lighteners but no ingredients are listed for those.

kojic acid cream, azelaic acid, and salicylic acid 6% gel sounds good.

Ladydanielle keep us updated on how the kojic cream works out for you.

Be aware though, the RA's from ACD may be too harsh to some people even at the weakest strength.

I have used it, when I applied a pea sized of the weakest strength Retin-A Micro 0.04% gel at night, I was experiencing itch like crazy, can't sleep properly because I was literally scratching all night long like I got fleas on my face. And within a couple of days my skin peeled like crazy too.

I did not experience such itch when I was using Retin-A micro 0.04% gel manufactured in North America, as I find it not as harsh than the ones from ADC. Maybe something in it that too irritating the vehicle used in the gel perhaps as they did not disclose it. I am a little hesitant to continue using it as it may compromise my health. I feel wasted my money.

lnl, I don't totally have acne clear skin just that its not like my teenage years. I get the occasional pimples.

mytwocents, I hope all is good with you now. Cortisone should help with that. I'm planning on ordering the RA .05% cream made by Johnson & Johnson.

Azelaic acid and salicylic acid good for exfoliating but RA already does that, right?

I thought ADC's weakest retin-a strength is 0.025%, and not 0.04%, last I checked anyways. 0.04% is almost medium strength like the 0.05%, and 0.1% being the strongest. you probably should have tried the 0.025%?

she is talking about Retin a MICRO, thats another version of retina that is less irritating because it delivers the medicine into your skin over a prolonged period and has the tretinoin in microspheres - time releassed-Retin-A.

I used RA-Micro which the weakest is 0.04% that caused itching like crazy. I also bought a mixture of several tubes of RA 0.05% and 0.1% gel which have expiration date until 2011, definitely can't use them.

I meant, it's not worth selling or trading it as you know the RA that ADC sells are very cheap and shipping to other people would cost more than these tubes.

If I can't use it might let it go for free.

Do you think I should hold on to it until I can accustomed to these RA from ACD expiration is 2011 and is good for 2 more years.
I have just ordered RA 0.1% cream manufactured by Johnson&Johnson, I felt being ripped off.
