Benni - Happy NEW YEAR...

Please see my responses below..

What did the other people do to cope with the break-outs
--- well some people stated that their is an ingredients that breaks people out. I don't have the exact ingredient right now.

Supposedly you mix one drop of the obagi with the retin a.
Which I did and I'm telling you my entire chin broke out on both sides.
Then after the bumps it left a dark spot.

I tried to hold on but by the 3 week point it was too much. I tried different ways, skipping a day, etc but I just could not take it anymore.

I could have dealt with the bumps but not the dark spots, I stopped using it then a week later did a TCA peel focusing on the spots. It helped and I might do another peel in about 4 weeks.

I order my peels from platinumskincare.dot.com.

I finally used the 0.1% Retin-A gel Clap,  and did it on Christmas Eve.....Really bold move.     I did not see any effect until today.....A very gentle peel Thumbs Up
 
Love this gel.  It glides on like oil/butter.    A very small smear goes a long way.   These 12 tubes will last a very long time.
 
Seeing it for the first time was surprising.    The .05% gel  seem like a mixture of gel and cream,   the 0.1%  is very clear,  and very spreadable.     I love it !!!!!
 
For now I am using it every other day,   with heavy moisturizer between applications.
 
 
 
 
Cool   HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!

It has been a week since I put Retin-A on hold.  I am not flaking anymore,  so I  used Kojie San soap and left on for 2 minutes this morning.
I may resume Retin A tomorrow.   I will try the 0.1% Gel every other night initially to accustom my skin to it,   then alternate with the Cream in another week or twoErmm

I have not been having much peeling,  but the dryness Question  Shocked
Sweet Almond Oil has been working wonders.    Fortunately I have not had to leave my home until after its dark,  so the sun has not been a problem during this time of flaking.  
Heart-ing  the new smooth skin.

I'm going to have to do a peel to try and fade some of these spots that the new bumps by obaji created.
 
 
 
Hey Sunshine.   What did the other people do to cope with the break-outsQuestion
Is there something in the ingredients list that you may be sensitive toQuestion
 
Maybe after the Holidays you may want to try again.
 
It's awful to buy something and have it not workCry
 
You can probably try mixing it with something to weaken it to your tolerance.
 
Fingers crossed for you Handshake
 
Good LuckStar

So here's the thing... Last night I was using the last of my .05% Retin-A Gel.    Got the creepy crawley (itching).   Too lazy to get up and wash my face,   I just wiped it off with a issue.
This a.m I noticed a pinkish hue.   Not too red
Grateful that that I was using the last of the .05% gel,  so I could not blame it on the higher %-age   0.
.1%  new shipment .
Also grateful that that I would now have to take a break before using the .1%,  so my skin would have the opportunity to recover.
Would be using lots of moisturizer with Tea Tree oil  for the following days.

I get mine from them also.   I ordered at least a years worth (24 tubes altogether), but only paid $12 on shipping this time.   
Their service has improved because my order took 1 week to get to me.



HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Hey - I recently started using Obagi Blender with Retin A. I will post the results. I'm hoping I have good results. I'll post back in the coming weeks.



Good Luck Sunshine321511 Hope it works well for you.

Where do you get your Retin-A ?    A few days ago I received a large shipment from ADC. I got 12 Retin-A .05% Cream, and 12 Retin-A .1% Gel.
I have not tried this higher %-age Gel yet because I am finishing what I already had on hand.    I hope it's not too strong for me
