Only Retinol I’ve Used!

I have used this retinol for years!  I use Revision Skincare for everything else, but even that company’s rep at my dermatologist’s office told me she loved this retinol over theirs!

My favorite retinol.

I’ve tried several retinol creams, and this is by far my favorite. In fact, I just ordered more. Highly recommend! It’s a good starter retinol cream.

Great Product

I ordered this for my mom as a starter retinol and it has worked fantastically so far. She has really sensitive skin which was not irritated at all and she has not seen any purging this far. But, she does use it only 2-3 times a week so far and with lots of moisturizer.

Fave

This is my favorite product. After increasing from 0.25, my skin adjusted very well, I have combination skin and I still stay hydrated throughout the night with this!

A nice retinoid

I like it but don’t love it. Just finished the bottle and can’t say I noticed a huge difference in my skin. Might try the 1.0 strength next time.

Still Learning to Love it

Bought this a few months back and still using it. It did cause irritation the first several weeks I used it but mainly because I think I was overdoing it. Started off twice a week and now using three times a week but not as consistent. Even though I've been inconsistent with it, I did notice an improvement in my skin texture. Will continue to use more regularly to receive all benefits of retinol.

Good product

Good product. Not life changing but also does what I expect a retinol to do.

Don’t hesitate to buy this

My dermatologist told me to use this to keep my skin pores clear and control acne. I had deeply clogged pores and bumps all over my face and jawline. He was right. I started using retinol with the 0.25 until I finished the bottle then graduated to 0.5. This 0.5 works well for my needs. I apply only at night, every other day. Keeps pores clear and complexion is more even. Took off one star as it does make skin more sensitive to the sun. Wear real sunscreen with min SPF35 every day. Been using this for over 3 years now. Keeping this retinol in my skincare regimen.

Great!

This is a gentle and effective mid level retinol. It really does help with skin turnover and fine lines and wrinkles.
