Product Overview

Product Overview

Avoid irritation by using Avene RetrinAL 0.1.

Retinol is a highly effective anti-aging ingredient, however, it can sometimes leave skin red, flaky and irritated. Avene RetrinAL 0.1 is an anti-aging cream that uses this powerful ingredient along with soothing ingredients to help reduce irritation. The retinol in this product encourages cell renewal to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improve the look of sun damage and boost firmness. Moisturizing extracts create a soft texture and prevent flaking along with other signs of irritation. Add this retinol cream to your routine for anti-aging results that won’t leave skin rough and damaged.  

This Avene skin care product contains soothing ingredients.

Avene RetrinAL 0.1 contains anti-aging ingredients such as 0.1% retinal that supports cell renewal to create soft, smooth skin. This cream also improves signs of aging such as loss of firmness, dull skin, uneven tone and sun damage. To reduce irritation, this Avene skin care product contains 5% thermal spring water. This natural water calms and heals skin to relieve redness and protect against sensitivity. Thermal spring water also helps prevent free radical damage. The fragrance-free formula is ideal for most skin types. For bright, smooth and healthy skin, use this cream along with your regular anti-aging products. 

This product is packaged with an airless pump dispenser, which uses a vacuum system to dispense the product. Please see this product's directions for further information on airless pumps.

Gentle, unsure of effectiveness at this point

I've been using this for a few months without irritation. I use it on my neck and chest, and use a prescription-strength tretinoin on my face. Although I haven't noticed a difference in my skin texture yet, I am aware these mild formulations take some time to work. I'll continue using for now and would recommend it to someone who is new to retinols. In general, I've been very happy with Avene's skin care products (the ones that are fragrance free, anyway).

Reverses aging

I first learned about this product by watching YouTube videos by dermatologists. Dr Dray explains how Retinaldehyde is the next best thing to Tretinoin, and perhaps better for some people as there is less irritation. I have been using this to get my prepare my skin for tretinoin. I started on 0.05 and moved up to 0.1. My skin tolerated it without any trouble whatsoever. After a break, I went straight onto 0.1 and found my skin was a little dry and slightly irritated, so I would recommend building up to 0.1. However, that being said, I just applied Cerave Moisturizing lotion for dry skin on top, as recommended by Dr Dray, and it didn't take long to be perfectly fine. Bottom line, this cream works. The difference in the youth of my skin is amazing. No over-the-counter/drugstore cream could rival the results this cream provides. It literally reverses aging at least up to 5 years. All fine lines GONE, and skin looks great. No need for tretinoin, this is doing the job. I don't want to be without it. I pair it with the Retrinal eyes. Just be sure to wear factor 50 face cream during the day, though, because vitamin a makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight. Hope this helps!! xxx

A favorite in my nightime rutine

My skin is sensitive and prone to rosacea and this product didn't irritate my skin like other retinoids. I love the way it feels and how beautiful my skin looks. It really works. I can' live without it.

The Best!

I have been using this particular retinol for many years. It was initially recommended by my dermatologist when I was in my late 40's. I started with a lower dose and gradually went up to 0.1. I am now in my early 70's and have been told by many people that I have beautiful skin. I attribute this to using Avene Retinol, plus genetics. My mother also used this product for many years. She passed away at 90 with beautiful skin. I highly Avene Retinol. Because of faithfully using this product I have NEVER had to use a prescription Retin A!!!

Perfect for my sensitive skin!

I had been using prescription strength Retin-A and it destroyed my skin, caused allergic reactions - was just awful. I tried this and my skin has never looked better ! Love it - will repurchase!

Great for sensitive skin

Prescription strength retina caused neck irritation, so several months ago I decided to try Avene .05 retinol. It was well tolerated so I purchased the .1 strength. I love the airless pump and how the product glides on.

Fantastic Product

Avene RetrinAL 0.1 is the best. Less irritating than Retin A but works better than most over the counter Retinol products on the market. I noticed a difference in my skin right away. My skin is brighter, clearer and even-toned as well as more youthful looking.

Great for Sensitive skin

I have tried to use retinol products over the years, but I have found them to be too harsh for my sensitive skin. I have been using this one for 3 years or so, 3 times a week with no problem and I see improvement. I am frequently told that I have beautiful skin.

All the Benefits of Tretinoin Without the Irritation

I'm a 38-yr-old esthetician who's worked in skincare for years and have tried A LOT of products. This is a phenomenal product that I've re-purchased many times. It's a wonderful, gentler alternative to prescription tretinoin. It has kept wrinkles away. Also makes my skin even-toned (creamy) and glowing. It's fragrance-free. And best, you don't have all the redness-peeling-irritation that tretinoin causes. My only complaint is that I wish the formula were slightly more spreadable/thinner textured.

Nice product

Spent a little bit more on this, and glad I did. I have trouble with retinol products, and wanted to try this one since it is retinaldehyde, supposed to be more effective than retinol. I am finding I am tolerating this better, and my skin is less irritated using this. Too soon to judge about the anti aging effects, but would buy again to try it out long term.

High end product

This is the second time I purchased this Avene RetrinAL product. I have really sensitive skin, most products I put on my skin makes my face turn red or have some kind of reaction (bumpiness, breakout or burns). So I'm very limited to the products I use. I know I want to incorporate using a retinol product in my daily regime but my skin couldn't handle the prescription tretinoin, so I did some research and found using the retinaldehyde would be a great choice as opposed to using retinol esters. I feel like this product is worth spending some money on and I'm just very pleased with it.

Good product, but the packaging really needs some work

This product works well, but for $ 70 it should be in a container where you can get to all the product. My pump stopped working after a very short period of time so I used a hammer to knock off the top and found half a bottle of product still inside. This company really needs to come up with better packaging.

Good product

This is my first Avene product purchase. I saw it recommended by a dermatologist as a product suitable for skin with rosacea - me! I’ve tried everything and while it’s mild it is easily irritated so I’m happy to have found a product that is compatible with my temperamental skin.

Wonderful Product

I have used this Avene RetrinAL 0.1 for several years. It is not drying to my skin at all. I find it eases fine line. My skin feels plumper after using it. I also use the companion product for the eyes.
