Paula's Choice CLINICAL 1 Retinol Treatment (1 fl. oz.)

A retinol cream treatment for improving skin's elasticity and firmness.

Paulas Choice CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment is a potent and uniquely formulated retinol formula that hydrates and delivers anti-aging benefits to the skin. Its creamy lotion texture rests lightly on the skin while the retinol quickly penetrates into the top layer to smooth and firm skin, boost cell regeneration, stimulate collagen production, refine pore size and even out skin tone. Unlike other retinol-heavy products that may irritate the skin, this cream offers the nourishing and anti-irritating vitamin C, licorice and oat extract to leave your skin smooth and well-soothed.

Key Ingredients:

  • Retinol: helps stimulate cell production
  • Vitamin C: reduces the appearance of brown spots, inflammation and irritation
  • Licorice Extract: relieves irritated skin
  • Oat Extract: helps soothe and heal skin

Key Benefits:

  • Advanced hydrating complex absorbs quickly
  • Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lightweight lotion texture
  • Offers a powerful 1% retinol concentration

Limit initial use to three times per week; gradually increase frequency to every other night, then finally each evening as tolerated. Apply a pea-sized amount after cleansing and/or toning. Carefully avoid the lips, eyes and corners of the eyes. Can be used on the perimeter of the orbital bone if desired. Do not apply to eyelids. To minimize irritation, try combining with 2-3 drops of Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster.
May be applied at the same time as your AHA or BHA exfoliant, but pay attention to how your skin responds. If you notice signs of sensitivity, apply your AHA or BHA exfoliant in the morning and this treatment at night or reduce frequency of application of Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum product rated SPF 15 or greater.

Once open, most effective when used within 12 months.

The best

I love this retinol! It has the same percentage of retinol as more expensive brands and works just as well if not better! Love the price too!

Worth it

This treatment is great for skin that's ready to try something stronger than beginner retinols. It's definitely more potent, but after a couple of weeks of alternating days, I was able to use it every night. I can see the difference in my skin when I take it out of my routine.

Paula's Choice Retinol

Holy grail product. Love that this is a highly concentrated retinol for a fraction of the price I was paying before. Will definitely repurchase!

Great Retinol Product

I recently purchased this, and after using it for a couple weeks, I can definitely say it's a great product. It's strong enough to make some skin peel, but it's minimal. And my skin looks flawless! I especially love the additional ingredients packed inside. It helps to reduce inflammation and soothe while it penetrates the skin.

Actually Works

My second experience with a retinol, and I can say that after 2-3 wks of using, my skin actually looks softer and more radiant. Previous attempt w another brand's .25% retinol cream had no results that I could notice. I did notice a tiny bit of peeling on my chin, but in these days of mask wearing, it probably was just getting more rubbed than the rest of my face. I wish it was easier to know which other products I should get from Paula's Choice- I feel overwhelmed but really like this product and would buy more.

Start out slowly

I'm new to this product and after reading the reviews I decided that slow was the best option. This is a wonderful product but after using for a few times I can see how it could harm if used to often. You definitely need to build up a tolerance.
