My Night Cream is Outdated?

My new night cream.
For about 10 years I have been using Azelex as a night cream to ward of pesky pimples. And it worked. It really did. When I veered off to ProActiv, my skin was not happy and created the worst acne breakout I have ever witnessed in my entire life.

Anyway, I recently came into a bit of a pickle when my insurance company stopped covering Azelex. Remember my story about having to pay $125?!

I took a trip to my Dermatologist and asked if there were any recommendations for a night cream. I told her I had been using Azelex and she laughed. She told me, "Well, that's a little bit outdated." Excuse me? She explained to me that facial creams have advanced. (Like I said, 10 years with Azelex people!! That was back in 2001.) She went on and said Azelex is an old formula and there are better products on the market that work.

She prescribed Ziana and told me that it will not only kill the bacteria in my pores, it has an aspirin like agent that will prevent new zits from popping up. Also, it's covered by my insurance company, so I only had to pay like $15!

What do you use at night?
