To be honest, I do not know how this is possible. Normally, the more you apply, the more redness and irritation it causes. Initially, the reaction to Tretinoin can be quite strong but gradually, the skin will get used to Tretinoin.

I cannot comment on your experience because I have no explanation. It would be interesting to hear from other users of Tretinoin.
