Great retinol product

5

Formula absorbs quickly and does not seem to irritate my skin, even with nightly use!

Amazingly Amazing

5

I've used Retin-A and several other OTC retinoids, and this is by far my favorite. I use it twice per week, and my skin is brighter and my pores are smaller. I love that the formula includes so many beneficial ingredients. I highly recommend it.

Best retinol there is.

5

This is possibly the best formulated, high concentration retinol on the market. This one goes beyond marketing nonsense to include antioxidants, peptides, niacinamide, etc. to create a product that rivals even prescription retinoids. As someone who has used prescription products, this retinol is not only just as effective, it's far better for skin and has bells and whistles that NO prescription retinol has. You could argue this is expensive, but you could argue that this is a lot of skincare products in one. It's really impressive. Retinol takes a bit of getting used to, but once your skin becomes acclimated the results are really noticeable. Not only do breakouts slow down or cease, skin becomes smoother, and even more "normal," if you your skin is oily like mine. In my experience, the greatest, and most noticeable results come from using a retinol product. I have never used one that's as good, much less better, than this.

Very Effective

5

After researching retinol products, I purchased this serum and have been very happy with the results. I've started using the product two nights per week, as is recommended in the directions. I have experienced a little dryness as a result, but my skin is beginning to adjust. If you have sensitive skin, however, you might consider using a product with a weaker concentration.

Hands Down, The Worst Thing I've Ever Used on My Skin

1

I worked my way up to this from the 0.5 concentration over the course of many months. How I duped myself into staying on it for as long as I did I don't know (I suppose you forget what normal skin looks like), but yesterday I quit and I will NEVER use this or anything like it again. If you'd like a face full of acne and hyper-pigmentation that'll have you home-bound most days of the week, reliving the acne nightmare of your teenage years, unable to face the world to meet your work or school obligations, wallowing in isolation at great cost to your emotional wellbeing, then this is the product for you. I saw no benefits whatsoever for all the misery. Since I quit I look so much better. The acne is resolving, almost overnight, and my skin glows again. I will never put my life on hold again for a skin product.

Love this product!

5

I had been using the .5 Retinol Complex and just made the move up to 1.0 after my dermatologist suggested I do so. The 1.0 is noticeably stronger and there is the normal adjustment period for your skin. That being said, I love this and can already notice a difference in the tone and texture of my skin.

LOVE IT! Thankful I discovered it!

5

I have used many retinoids/retinols over the years. This is the only one my skin can tolerate yet be effective. There must be something in it that balances the sensitivity.

My favorite Retinol Product

5

Great Product. It really works. Makes my skin smooth and soft. I always had bad skin with sun damage and acne. Now I actually get compliments. This product may cause peeling so start slow and with a lower strength. Skip a few days between use and use a moisturizer. Work yourself up to everyday use. Don't give up just because your skin starts peeling. It's worth it!

Effectiveness of Retinol 1.0

5

It does cause peeling which is what you want from this product. I alternate between 1.0 and o.5 if my skin becomes excessively dry or peels excessively. This product helps with skin regeneration and reduces wrinkles. Highly recommended. If your skin is sensitive 0.5 % would be the concentration to start with

Best wrinkle defense cream

5

This is the best wrinkle defense cream I"ve ever used. I use it in combo with the Vitamin C Plus E to keep the age spots and uneven tone away.
