RETIN-A MICRO is a water-based gel that can be applied immediately after you wash your face, unlike RETIN-A, which requires a 20 to 30 minute waiting period. RETIN-A MICRO also reduces the appearance of facial shine. I used differin which helped my skin but i ended up going red…esp after sun exposure..so i stopped. I think retin A and renova( is it retin A micro?) does the same thing? how come some ppl in thisboard says it deals with redness and shine?________X16Xe I don’t agree with that quote regarding Retin-A micro being non-irritating. I used Isotrexin Gel, which is Retin-A Micro, and it stripped my skin and made it red raw and peeling.Retin-A, (the cream), on the other hand works fine on my skin. Unfortunately you can’t tell which will be best for you until you try it. Comments are closed.
