  • These products are about the same thing and yes they are used for anti-aging as well as acne. I know this because I have been looking into it but haven't made a purchase yet!

  • Tretinoin and Retin A are the same thing. Retin A is commonly used for acne, but can also be found in wrinkle or anti-aging creams. I have been using a cream with retin A to fade the mask of pregnancy, and it has the added benefit of reducing fine lines and wrinkles. You have to use sunblock, because the skin can become sensitive, but I have noticed a difference!
