This is just a quick heads up to let you know that Galderma’s Differin Gel is now available OTC in the states so you can buy it online from pharmacies that ship worldwide and even Amazon. (I’ve just checked and Amazon is definitely shipping to SA.)
If you’re a regular reader you’ll know I’ve raved about this previously prescription only product in the past. Essentially, it’s my go to bestie to blitz a nasty blind pimple. The moment one pops up I slick it on morning and night and within two days the beast is almost gone.
In the past, I’ve asked for a script for it whenever I’ve seen a doc or hit up a dodge-looking pharmacy who looks like it will hand over anything. I also make a point of grabbing it when I travel in the east and still have two tubes from my last visit to Vietnam. (Dodge pharmacies a-go-go!)
Anyway, if it’s something you’d like to try yourself its become a lot easier to get hold of.
P.S. I’m currently working on a big copywriting gig so forgiveness if I’m only posting every second day for the next little while. Gotta earn them Ronds, you know. But I’ll be back on all cylinders soon.
UDATE: Oops! Last night I wrote that this was available OTC in South Africa but it was a miscommunication. I’ve since clarified with the pharmacist who gave it to me and she was saying that as its recently been declared an OTC product in the states so she didn’t feel too fussed about giving it to without a script as it would soon be fine here too. Apologies for the miscommunication and off to Amazon you go!
