Neither: Aczone is topical dapsone which is an antibiotic. Finacea is azealic acid . This medicine is better for rosacea and hyperpigmentation. Retinoids (Retin A (tretinoin) and Differin eg) are better for comedones (blackheads and whiteheads). Also glycolic acid and salicylic acid help with clog pores.
