Smooth Skin Ahead
My sensitive skin is glowing! 0.25 is the perfect strength for skin that needs to ease into the retinol world. This product clarifies, evens out skin tone, reduces super fine lines, repairs, and helps skin to look its best. If you find that it's too strong, use it every other day, or every two days until you find a happy medium. Using a high quality moisturizer as a first step before applying the 0.25 helps a lot...If I could change one thing, it would be to remove the soy from the ingredients, as I have a food intolerance to soy. This product does, however, seem to be doing okay thus far on my face as a topical treatment. I've already ordered another bottle so that I'm ready to go when my first runs out--this treatment is a keeper and has become an essential step in my beauty routine.
Love this product. .5 and 1.0 were too strong for my skin type but have found that .25 works really well.
1.0 is too strong, this one good for sensitive skin
I bought the 1% and the .25. After using the 1%, it would take a week for me to get rid of all the dead skin. The .25 is way more gentle and you don't have to worry about having flaking skin on your face.
I love using this retinol treatment product during the winter months when my skin is dry. I put this over my moisturizer at night and have not had any issues with irritation. Have repurchased!
Decent low concentration retinol product
Liked this product. Used to condition my skin for higher retinol concentration products. May use in future for maintenance. I have sensitive skin and this did not cause any reactions.
This product definitely works to get rid of fine lines. I wouldnt be without it.
I have only been using this Retinol product for a week, but so far I like it. I came from a sensitive skin Retinol and was afraid my skin would react poorly to this one, but thus far using it every other night has proven no issue. I like that the consistency is more of a lotion, easy to apply. Bottle says use 1 pump, but I find I need 2 pumps to reach all areas of my face. So far so good!!!
not as great as SkinMedica Tri Retinol
When I used tri-retinol, my skin lost the lines. Now that Im using this substitute (tri-retinol was phased out), my lines wont go away. Wish they would bring back the old one!
Retinol for Sensitive Skin
I have been using this product in the .5 retinol strength but have found when my skin gets dry I am better off using the .25 strength. Either one is an excellent product and I highly recommend.
I really do like this product (it was recommended to me by my plastic surgeon). Just be careful when starting to use this product. If used everyday at first, it can cause your skin to be dry and flaky (at least this was my experience). Also, do start with the low percentage first and work your way up. Its tempting to just go for the stronger formula, but thats not a great idea!
