Saw results in just weeks!

After using this retinol for about two weeks I noticed the texture of my skin became so much smoother and plumper. This was the only thing I changed in my skincare regimen so I'm confident it's due to this product. I plan to work my way up to the higher concentrations, and I can't wait to see how much better my skin can get. Absolutely love it!

Not bad but nothing amazing yet

I have very sensitive skin so I am always hesitant to try new products. This one hasn't made me break out or anything so that is a plus. I will say I have not noticed a crazy difference in my skin texture yet but I think I just need to build up my tolerance and start using it more often.

Skinmedica Retinol .25

This is the perfect option if you’re just getting started using retinol, it is gentle and you can use start gradually using it just a couple of times a week. I have very sensitive skin and I can use it about 5 times a week now.

Gentle and effective

I love this retinol! I am 56 and have tried to acclimate to retin A in the past…too harsh. I started slowly with this and built up to nightly use with no irritation and have been able to successfully incorporate retin a into my regimen…great Price and lasts a long time….love the pump !

Best eye cream!

I have used so many eye creams and this one lasts me for about a year, a little goes a long way. I am 30 years old and get questioned my skin care routine all of the time and I attribute it to eminence products!

Satisfactory

The brand is well known and I think I was expecting to notice some results or any small changes. Nothing special about product for me yet.

Effective!

I really like this retinol. Even though it’s less strong and advertised for beginners, it’s certainly still powerful and effective. I’ve noticed that it clears up my blemishes and evens skin tone. I always follow it with moisturizer, but have switched to every other night versus nightly since it was still drying out my skin. Since then, it’s been great!

Makes such a difference!

Using retinol consistently has drastically improved my skin. I tried using the 0.5 version, but it made my skin extremely irritated and flaky. The 0.25 version is perfect for me and does not cause any irritation if I use a good moisturizer after. Even if you only use this product once or twice a week, it'll make a difference!

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!
