I’ve been using the 0.1% gel every other day with 0.25% cream in between. At first I was unsure about the gel, it is a very oily consistency but I persevered. I’m so happy I did!
I put it on before I go to bed and whilst it is oily it soaks into my skin really well. I should add that I have very resistant skin to harsh environments and strong products so I probably wouldn’t recommend starting on the 0.1% gel.
It is strong however after a month my skin looks better than it has in years. I suffer from very oily rosacea skin and have tried everything including oral isotretinoin. The gel is the best of both worlds as it helps limit oil production however doesn’t create any other side effects like the oral medication.
I’ve tried literally everything for my rosacea and nothing has worked until now. I wash my face each evening after work with Dermol 500 and then apply soolantra. I then apply my Tretinoin oil or cream right before bed. In the morning I wash with dermol 500 again and apply double base + sunscreen before going about my day. My skin is currently pain free and looks clearer than it has in about 4 years!
People say it takes a while to work but my fine lines have all but disappeared in about 4-6 weeks and I’m 44!
I would definitely recommend the gel however always check with your DR or Dermatologist. Im in the UK and mine was reluctant to prescribe it. They definitely wouldn’t have prescribed 0.1% so I ordered it myself.
Tretinion world is a fantastic site! Super fast delivery and products exactly as described. I will be ordering some more soon without a doubt however will probably up my regime to 0.5% cream and 0.1% gel alternating days.
