Perfect beginner retinol

I've been wanting to add retinol to my routine for a while but when I tried the Drunk Elephant retinol it made my skin itchy, dry, and painful. So I know I needed to start low. Everything by skinmedica I've tried has been amazing! This is no different. Great and effective product! Will definitely be using this retinol in the .5 next time!

First retinol

This was the first retinol I ever used. And I am in LOVE. I got so many compliments after using this consistently. It makes me excited to use this product. At 28, I thought it was time for some prevention, and this retinol does that and so much more!

Effective and gentle

My first retinol! Gentle and had minimal peeling. Results were a bit slow and I eventually moved up to 0.5 after a couple months

Great start to retinol

I've heard you need to go easy on the retinol when first using, this is a great way to get started! Powerful and packs a punch without causing damage to your skin. It's comfortable and soothing rather than some other harsh products I've used.

A Must-Have

This is my first time using a retinol product and I love it bc it has made a big difference for my aging skin (42 yrs old). I had a small bump on my nose from an enormous pimple when I was a teen. I thought it would be there forever but the retinol flattened the bump! It also livened up my complexion that was turning grey/dull. This is a must have for me and going to try the higher % next time.

Great starter retinol

Took a break from using retinol products and got this one to ease back into a routine. Starting off using every third day and will slowly bump up frequency.

So far so good

I’ve been using this product for two weeks now. Before this, I was using Sunday Riley’s A+ retinol, but wasn’t completely satisfied with the results. I can definitely tell the difference between the quality of ingredients between the two. This retinol soaks into your skin instead of sitting on top and leaving behind a shiny layer. I’ve been using it every other night followed with moisturizer. On the nights I use it, the next morning my skin looks more even and refreshed. I’m going to start using nightly and hope it helps clear up some of my mask induced acne.

Skin is glowing

I’ve been using this for the past month and have noticed my skin looking more glowy! I haven’t had any sensitivity at all. I use the Reservatrol before applying this and then follow in with Elta MD barrier renewal and have seen a difference.

Best retinol product

Nice smooth consistency & absorbs well into skin. No fragrance noticed. Skin has a smooth & refreshed look in the first week of use. Very happy overall with product. Moderate price is worth it. Will purchase again.
