Brandefy Review

*Neither brand is cruelty-free. Sarah says: This Differin product is not an exfoliator, it lacks the scrubby/gritty particles I am used to with Proactiv. I have dry, acne prone chin and nose areas. I find the proactiv really helped me to scrub away the dead skin for additional radiance and smoothness. The Differin controlled the acne well enough but left me a little dull. I feel like the formulas are pretty similar but the scrubby/gritty particles really make a huge difference in these two products being nothing alike. They both have BPO, smell about the same. But I really feel the addition of exfoliating particles would make the Differin a perfect hack! If your skin isn't so dry, this may work well for you.
