Clearer Skin Starts With Differin Gel, 0.3%

Application Method


  • In the evening, just before bedtime, use your fingertips to gently wash the entire face with a mild non-soap cleanser
     Using a washcloth, mesh sponge, or anything other than your fingertips can irritate the skin
  • Rinse with warm water


  • Gently pat skin dry with a soft, clean towel


  • Press the pump to dispense a pea-sized amount of Differin Gel, 0.3%—using more may irritate your skin
  • Spread a thin layer evenly over your entire face, avoiding the areas around your eyes and mouth
     To work correctly, Differin Gel, 0.3% should be used on your entire face, and not just to spot treat pimples
