Great Product

5

I love this product! I particularly like that the amount of retinol is clearly communicated. This is a retinol concentration I can tolerate and so it works well for me.

My Favorite Over The Counter Retinol

4

This is my favorite over-the-counter retinol. It's still very powerful and I typically use an additional heavy moisturizer to protect my skin. This product is powerful enough to make your skin dry, like other strong retinols, but it slightly more moisturizing. I recommend using it with another moisturizing barrier for your first few uses.

second time buying it

4

It is more gentle than skinsceuticals. I just wish it wasnt a pump dispenser (i always feel like there is cream left in the jar you cannot get to.

So-so

I’ve built up for my skin to handle retinol but this just dried my skin out completely.

Good Non-Rx Alternative

4

This is a good alternative retinol if you don't have an Rx. Did not irritate my sensitive skin.

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

5

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

3

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

4

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

3

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.
