First Time Retinol User - No Redness

5

I was worried to try this product because I know retinol can irritate your skin. As some background I once tried to use 10% Glycolic on my face and my face turned red for days and I also tried a highly rated vitamin c serum and my face was extremely sensitive and would turn red if I tried to wash my face. I have only used this product once on my skin but it did not cause any lasting irritation. My face looked a little red after using it but I have been able to wash my face and use other skin products without flaring up my skin. I washed my face and put on the Drunk Elephant C-Serum this morning without causing any redness or irritation. I will use it 2x/week to start as recommended and work my way up to using it everyday. Glad I found anti-aging retinol product that I can use without making my skin overly sensitive.

This is a Powerful Product

5

Using this product marks my first foray into retinol use. I thought I'd start out slow with the .25 formula, and I'm glad I did. I have been using this for a few months at twice a week and was noticing an improvement in my skin texture. I recently increased use to every other night and, boy, have I really started to notice a difference. All of a sudden my skin is exhibiting the radiance and suppleness that I've been striving for. I use quite a few products that all bring a certain combo of ingredients to the table so I can't give sole credit to the product. However, it has proven a great team member. I will definitely keep purchasing!

Great for sensitive skin

I have sensitive skin, but this did not cause any side effects like flakiness, irritation, or redness. I've tried using Skinceutical 0.5 retinol, but it caused irritation and flakiness and my skin never adjusted. After taking a hiatus, I decided I want to start very low. This has a very low concentration retinol so I'm not expecting it to improve my skin by much. I'm using it as a stepping stone to move up to products with higher amount of retinol. It has a good texture that's easily spread and absorbed. Not too sure about the packaging, though. My understanding was that retinol has to be in an air-tight container, but the opening of the pump is really big - too big to be considered air-tight in my opinion. It caused some mild irritation, flakiness, and dryness in the beginning, but after about 3 weeks of use, my skin has adjusted. I will use the entire bottle before moving up to 0.5. Can't wait!

Skin changer

5

This product has completely changed my skin. I have sebaceous hyperplasia that I've had difficulty getting rid of. I've tried everything-lasers, retin-A, Glycolic acid, nothing worked. I've been using this now for a few weeks and all the hyperplasia is gone. My skin is super smooth and it glows! I no longer wear normal foundation, I use a CC Creme with SPF 50 in it. Love this product!

Nice consistency to the product and not overly irritating. Helped smooth my skin after 4 weeks of use.

Tried and true

I'm a huge believer in Retinol products in general and have been using them for 20 years with terrific results... people always comment on my skin. While I've tried other Retinol brands, I always come back to Skin Medica. I have experimented between the .25 and .50 formulation. It's kind of a toss up. If I get the .25 I can use it morning and night without any redness. I can use the .50 only at night. Bottom line: I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

One of my favorite products

5

I've been using Age Defense Retinol Complex .25 for about a month now. I use it three times a week, between my professional facials. It's very gentle on my skin and I can see that my face is getting smoother and my pores are not nearly as visible as they were. I really love this product and will definitely buy it again. A little bit goes a long way and I think it is worth the price.

You'll love it.

I love this serum! If you have extremely oily skin, you may be able to get away with only using this at night due to it's lotion-like texture. I have sensitive skin and this didn't hurt it at all! Highly recommend!
