Good retinol product
Being a mature woman I need a retinol product. I have used this before and it is good. I chose the lower dose because I don't want to irritate my skin. I alternate it with a Vitamin A product and it seems to work. I put on a moisturizing cream over it - or hyaluronic acid. It is a bit pricey but if you get it on sale it is more reasonable. I think, for the money, it is one of the better retinol products offered.
Retinol complex 0.5
Too early to say what results will be but has a nice texture and skin seems a bit brighter and smoother. Had been using a prescribed strength of 0.25 for years but thought it was time to increase. Skin did react a bit and cut down usage to every 3 days until skin calmed down. Am increasing usage to every other night following serum and followed by moisturizer. Am hopeful that with increased use over time skin will continue to improve, but my skin definitely seems to have a bit of a glow and a little more youthful look. For reference I am slightly over 60 years old.
I've been using this retinol for many weeks now and I'm so glad I didn't give up! I almost did around the 8 week mark because I thought my skin looked worse than when I started. I simply had to adjust how and how often I was using it. It has helped with skin discoloration and my face just looks more youthful. I use it every other day and usually buffered. I will continue with the .5 until I feel the need to increase the strength. The texture is creamy and really smooth it easily sinks into the skin. The package is perfect to keep the product effective, but it may be a little hard to tell when the product is getting low. In general it's an effective retinol!
This is an awesome product. It has helped my skin's texture look so much better.
Just moved up to 0.5
I love SkinMedica and have been using the Retinol 0.25 for awhile. It's a great product, and I'm moving to the higher strength version. I'm getting past the redness and peeling and expect to fall in love with it by next week!
Great anti-aging product. Helps decrease sun spots and smooths skin texture. Best overall retinol I have used.
I decided to upgrade to the .50 from .25 I had been using and so glad I did! I can definitely see a difference in my skin with only a slight increase in flaking in the first week as I have sensitive skin with a mlld rosacea. It seems to be helping clear blemishes and my skin already looks brighter.
I've been using this Retinol Complex for three years and can say that it keeps my 50 something skin in tip top shape! Helps to keep skin tone even and age spots less noticeable. Must have in your skin care routine.
SkinMedica Retinol Complex 0.5
I love this retinol product. The texture is silky and easily absorbed, also love the fact that it's fragrance free and doesn't contain other unnecessary ingredients.
A product worth trying
I'm very pleased with the 0.5 strength. I'm seeing results without the irritation. It doesn't cause my skin to turn Red or peel like other stronger formulas that I've used in the past but I can tell that it's working. My skin looks healthier because it is smoother and the appearance of fine lines has been reduced. If I feel that I need a stronger version, then I'll try the 1.0 but so far I'm very pleased with the 0.5. If you want the benefits of a Retinol product without the harsh side affects, I would recommend this product.
