Unagel by Green Cream Calming Acne Treatment
Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant (4 fl. oz)
Elta MD Foaming Facial Cleanser
Green Cream High Potency Retinol Level 3 is an effective treatment for the following conditions:
Green Cream 0.3% stimulates exfoliation of dull-looking epidermal cells by accelerating skin cell turnover time from the standard 30 to 35 day cycle to 5 to 6 days, causing the skin to appear smoother and brighter looking. It also repairs cellular structure damage gradually in the epidermal cells, as well as in the dermal collagen and small blood vessels. This cream will even help shrink oil glands, which in turn reduces pore size and diminishes scars.
With regular use, Green Cream will held build "infrastructure" by stimulating new collagen and a new thicker, plumper epidermis.
For sensitive skin types and people that want to ease into a retinoid regimen should start with our Level 3-strength, high-potency retinol. Though Level 3 is the mildest strength, you can still expect to see visible results after a few months of daily use.
Who is this for?
Suited for all skin types - including sensitive.
If you have never used a retinoid or your skin is sensitive to topical treatments, you should test a small area of your face and then, wait 24 hours for any kind of reaction. If no reaction, you should apply a small amount to your face once a week for 2 to 3 weeks.
Next, apply Green Cream 3 times a week for a month. Ultimately, your goal should be to work up to applying Green Cream every other night. Be patient as your skin adapts to a retinol treatment. Even with infrequent applications, you should see some results. Also, it is best that you start with Level 6, (level 3 for sensitive skin) Green Cream.
After gentle cleansing with a mild soap or cleanser, apply a small amount to the entire face, initially avoiding the eye and neck areas. Start using Green Cream every other night for 1 to 2 weeks and gradually increase to once or twice daily as tolerated. For maximum benefit, use Green Cream in the evenings when possible as this product can easily be inactivated by light.
Occasionally, a burning or stinging sensation may be felt during the first few weeks of use. Redness or a mild rash can also develop. Discontinue use of the product for a few days and apply a bland moisturizer or mild hydrocortisone cream or lotion as needed. The latter should be discontinued when symptoms are improved.
Flaking may occur since dull sun-damaged cells are being shed and new, younger cells are being stimulated. As needed, using a mild exfoliant followed by a moisturizer can help shed the peeling skin.

Been using this for 2 weeks and my skin feels softer and smoother. Dont see much difference in the wrinkles around my mouth yet. Started out every other night the first week then used it every night as I saw no signs of flaking, so I will order the level 6 next time. Hopefully that might smooth out the wrinkles more.
Did you find this review helpful?
This product really works like no other product I have ever used!
I initially bought Green Cream number 6, because I had previously been using Glytone products. However, the number 6 proved to be a little too strong for me to use on a daily basis. I therefore thought I would try Green Cream number 3, and alternate with Green Cream number 6. I still have to apply moisturizer over the Green Cream number three and also the Green Cream number 6, otherwise it is too drying for my skin. In general, I really like it.
I rarely give reviews on anything I purchase but this right here deserves a review after IS clinical serum and skinsceutical retinol journey. This product is my holy grail. I saw a difference in a week. I have no irritating side effects whatsoever. Any acne is wiped off within days. I would give a 10 stars if I could. This simply works. I have oily skin btw.
I switch GC level 3 and 6 based on my skin condition at times. GC makes my skin glow like no other. LOVE.
I use this retinol cream twice a week, and I've experienced no peeling or any irritation on my sensitive skin since I started this routine. My face is radiant the next morning.
Brightens and softens skin and has helped my pores. I was hesitant to use since I'm very sensitive to retinol, but this is very mild and non-irritating. I recommend for those that are trying to find something that is gentle yet effective.
I've been using it for a few months lts lasted me a while and works great, mild for sensitive skin
I started with this level 3 and then after about 6 months I graduated to level 6. This stuff softened my skin and got rid of some of my freckles and brown spots. It also helped with my pores a bit. Well see what another 6 months will bring. So far, I'm happy with this.
I've used level 3 for a while now on the very sensitive regions of my face, while I've switched to using level 6 on the rest. I was worried at first that using a retinol product would make my skin even more irritable, so started with the low potency. My skin has tolerated it well, and after a while, it has even seemed to reduce redness and irritibility.
