In brief: Not recommended.

Differin (adapalene) is a topical retinoid medication similar to vitamin a.
It is helpful in nearly all cases of acne. If you are using salicylic acid in addition to differin (adapalene), (adapalene) i would recommend you put them on at separate times. I would separate the application by at least 6 hrs. If you apply them to your face together, you may decrease the effectiveness of the differin (adapalene).
