Skinmedica retinol

Great product. Absorbs well. I follow with TNS ceramide cream. I am in my 60s with normal to dry skin. Will increase to 1.0 next order.

Great retinol

I re started using retinol and wanted to start with the 0.5 since I’ve used retinol before. I use it every other night and I love it, it hasn’t caused irritation or peeling. My skin looks great the next morning. Will re purchase and continue to use

So strong for my skin

I may need to continue prepping my skin with the 0.25 version of this product. Be aware of the "purging" phase your skin might have in relation to retinol products. Itching, dry, peeling skin. Use the 0.25 first. This product made my skin glow and bright after it healed though.

Pretty good just a bit overpriced

So as I started my retinol journey on the SkinCeuticals .03 then the .05 and then I switched over to this one and my skin has been doing okay. I lo0ve the overall effect retinol has had on my skin over time has helped the look of blackheads on my nose, changed my overall skin texture, helps clear out any pimples I get in a matter of days but like I said this product is a bit overpriced but if you want to do it like me and slowly make your way up the ladder of retinol strengths before I try out Tretinoin

Results unclear

I use this on top of my thick moisturizer as a dermatologist once recommended me to do with retinols. As the product indicates, irritation is to be expected. Hopeful my skin acclimates eventually and I see long term results.

Great retinol

Great OTC retinol product. I keep going up in strength everytime I finish a bottle and have never had any reaction.

Happy with it!

I purchased this Retinol cream after previously using SkinBetter’s AlphaRet. I really like it, and it’s cheaper than the AlphaRet was. It’s definitely for skin that’s experienced with a retinol, if you’re new to them, use sparingly! Good buy!

must have

I have been using this Retinol for over 8 years. I cant imagine what my skin would look like it this was not apart of my daily routine. Summer time I usually use it every other day to avoid too much red because of the heat where I live. Otherwise, amazing!
