Acne Control PM
Dermtella® Retinol Cream for Acne is a doctor formulated retinol serum to be used at night for the treatment of acne. It is designed to prevent and control the breakout of acne but also helps reduce old acne scars.
1. Acne Treatment
The active ingredients in DrFormulas Retinol Cream work together to combat several contributors to acne, including bacteria and clogged pores. The formulation can help to reduce whiteheads, blackheads, and cysts, and to potentially prevent future breakouts.
2. Sebum Control
DrFormulas Retinol Cream is designed to control your oil production in your sebaceous glands. This helps to prevent clogged pores and irritation that result in the formation of acne lesions, while also keeping your skin balanced to prevent an overly oily or dry complexion.
Inflammation causes pain, redness, and swelling, all of which makes acne uncomfortable and contributes to the formation of cysts and lesions. The ingredients in our retinol cream for acne may help to soothe inflammation, allowing your skin to glow and thrive.
4. Improve Scars and Blemishes
The formula features ingredients that promote skin cell turnover and encourage new skin cells to form. This can help to heal or decrease the appearance of existing acne scars to provide smooth, soft, blemish-free skin.
- Zinc PCA
- Hyaluronic Acid
- Azelaic Acid

I’ve been using this for two months now and I’m in love with it! I started with once a week and have increased to 2/3 times a week now. I’ve had sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin since I was 11. I am now 30 and still struggle with acne. For the past two years, between hormonal acne and reactions to wearing a mask at work, I noticed the severity increase. But after about two weeks of this, I noticed the number of them going down. Now I usually only have one/two pimples at most. They also clear up much faster. I’ve also noticed that my skin has been firming up as well as a brighter complexion.
The biggest effect that I’m grateful for is that it has helped with the cystic acne I get from allergic reactions. If I ever accidentally eat flaxseed, I usually see reactions of cystic acne for the next six months. They’re extremely painful and cover my cheeks. The scars last for about a year after too. I ate flaxseed about a month ago, but for the first time in my life I have only seen one cystic pimple so far, and two smaller ones surrounding it. And rather than those pimples lasting a month or more, they lasted for about 4 days before reducing. I still scarred pretty bad but I can’t express how grateful I am to not be covered in clusters of cystic pimples right now and have them just keep showing up. And to actually be seeing them heal at a normal rate too. I was mentally prepared to be going through my usual reaction for the next 6 months and so far I’m not. I can’t express how amazing that feels. I’m genuinely blown away by this product and what it’s done for me.
I’ve added progress photos. As of today I don’t have any pimples, just scars. A huge improvement from the inflammation at the beginning.
This was another thing that I came across recommended on social media. Only been using for a week but the acne marks on my face seem to have faded a little already. Excited to keep using and see how much more they will fade.
I’ve been using this nightly (moisturizing with dermtella moisturizer afterwards) for almost two weeks. I’ve noticed a reduction in redness and acne!
I self-diagnosed, since my mom suffers from rosacea and I’ve always had red checks, but it’s been getting worse over the last 5 or so years. Feeling good about the results so far & very glad I tried it!
When using the first bottle up, I saw a big improvement with the size of my pimples, the scarring, and my skin wasn’t as oily! The redness went down so much. Those were the main things I noticed! (My before and after pictures are attached). I apply this at night before moisturizer.
My skin definitely improved after using DrFormulas retinol for just a month. I used to have pimples and huge pores which easily clogs up. I have oily skin to add up. Just lately I bought their other acne products as well.
I am about 4 weeks in so my skin is not where I want it to be YET, but this stuff is amazing. I’ve been dealing with adult acne and super clogged pores for about a year with no relief. My skin looked SO congested. It’s so soft and clean now and my pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads are clearing up quickly
It worked so fast and so well.
It was both affective in getting rid of present acne but also fading acne scars.
So far, I’m loving this product for my big pimples and acne scars. It reduces the size of the pimple. It works so well with the niaskin moisturizer. I’m impressed with the formulation as it is non-irritating. Highly recommend!!
I purchased this product a couple of months ago for my teenage daughter who struggles with acne. We saw immediate clearing within three days of consistent use, and she did not encounter the skin flaking or slight darkening that occured when she used Proactive. I usually paid about $80 per Proactive kit, so the DrFormulas is way more cost effective. If you are looking to explore other acne fighting choices, I recommend giving it a try.
