Unagel by Green Cream Calming Acne Treatment
Elta MD Foaming Facial Cleanser
Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant (4 fl. oz)
Green Cream High Potency Retinol Level 6 is an effective treatment for the following conditions:
Green Cream 0.6% 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.
Another effect of regular use is that 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.
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.

Did you find this review helpful?
I love this, it has helped my skin
A lot and I know it's only going
To get better the longer I use it
I'm 60 yrs old & this product helps my wrinkles & tightens my pores. Wish I had found it years ago. Try it.
I have used this product before - bought from a plastic surgeon. I have a history of skin cancers and this product was very preventive in keeping down occurrences. My doctor stopped carrying product so I found it on this website. I did not know the strength so I ordered the 6. This was too strong so I am ordering the 3 until I build up to the 6.
Used this product for a week and it did clear up skin but it also made my skin peel as well. I am using the 6 so will go down to a 3. I am 43 and do not have sensitive skin but do get adult acne and was surprised how well it worked. The price is right on with other creams and feels good without any strong perfume smell. Will purchase again just a lighter strength.
I'm 74, but have pretty nice skin except for the past year the vertical lines in my upper and lower lip were getting much deeper, and the sides of my cheeks were developing a "seersucker" puckering, indicating a sagging of the skin. I went to the dermatologist in the N.O. area who developed Green Cream. I started with a prescription of Tretinoin cream 0.02% but it was very, very expensive. She told me the Level 3 Green Cream would be just as effective. After 6 weeks she had me graduate to the Level 6 Green Cream, and two weeks ago graduated to Level 9 Green Cream. The lines have gotten noticeably shallower, the puckering at times isn't even visible, and my skin is brighter, pores smaller. I am very, very pleased with the results. I can even put the Level 6 on my upper and lower eyelids daily and they have tightened. I would not put level 9 on the eyelids, too strong. I used Aveeno Baby Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream to relieve any prickly feelings I got when starting to use the Green Cream - it was very soothing.
My dermatologist introduced me to Green Cream. I am 73 and currently using Level 6. I have sensitive, dry skin. My skin looks wonderful and I plan to continue using this level and move up to level 9 when I can.
So far so good, I just had a little peeling, but not much. I used retinol before so I think it might be the reason why. I haven't been able to get rid off some of the acne, but I am only using it every other day. I hope to see better results soon.
I have not used this product for very long, and had to stop using it for a couple of days as there was too much peeling. I had previously used a product with glycolic acid in it, and so felt comfortable starting with a level 6. Nonetheless, I still had to stop using it for a short period of time. It does not sting when you use it, nor does it leave a green film on my pillow as some people have complained about. In general, I like it. I think it will make a big difference in my face.
I suffer from adult acne and have tried many, many, many products and skincare lines that have not helped at all. I have recently changed a few things in my skincare routine, as well as adding some vitamins, so I can't say this alone has made my skin clear up, BUT I absolutely love this moisturizer. I use it at night and I wake up with glowing skin. With the pump on the bottle, it is easy to dispense as much or as little product as you want (which is a really nice feature). This stuff really is bright green, but my skin effortlessly soaked it right up. It is light and gentle...and best of all WORKS. Since about a week after using this, I have had very small blemishes that go away quickly, but not one cyst/large pimple. My scars have diminished almost completely and my tone is looking beautiful and even! I'm hoping with things quickly clearing up, my pores will also become less noticeable. This product is amazing, and I cannot believe I found something that actually works.
