Has anyone used Truth Creme Advanced Hydration with Retin-a?
I was wondering if anyone used Retina with this, and if so, how they were using it? For example, how long of a wait before putting on the Retin-a? I am 26 and using the Retin-a for line/wrinkle prevention and to combat adult acne. My skin is fairly sensitive. This creme just happened to come with my clarisonic, and I tried it because I was out of lotion and my face was so dry. I have only been using for 2 days, but it hasn't made my acne worse, which is a miracle. I was thinking about sticking with it since I haven't had a bad reaction yet, but if anyone has any suggestions for better/different face lotions that will work well with Retin-a and are good for acne, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

I also deal with adult acne from time to time and bought the DDF salyclic acid cleanser to help. The cleanser is amazing and completely keeps the acne at bay, however I was so dry from it that I needed an intensive moisturizer. This moisturizer is amazing--I cleanse my face, use eye cream and serum then add this over right away, no wait time. Every now and then I throw some retina on if I feel its necessary and you really dont have to wait too long between using them. This absorbs very quickly so you can do makeup right away. I highly recommend this.

I use Retin-A at night and a different medication in the morning, and this is actually one of the few products I've found that doesn't have any kind of reaction with either one! I've tried other things that, combined with the medicines, made my face burn, but this one feels just fine. It also is one of a very few things that keeps my skin hydrated when the Retin-A makes it dry!
