I started using this retexturizing activator recently, replacing the B5 gel in my daily routine. I use it twice a day, in the morning after the CE Ferulic, and at night time after cleaning my face. It gently exfoliates during days and hydrates the skin, too. So far, so good.

I generally have oily skin, but I use this product in the morning and alternate at night with the B5 gel. My skin is noticeably smoother and the skin tone is more even. I am almost 40 and just use a tinted sunscreen as my foundation thanks to the skinceuticals line.

I love what this product does for my skin. I am often told I look much younger than my age, and I think this product has contributed to my young looking skin. Feels good when I put it on, also!

I've been using this product for many years and love it- gentle on my sensitive skin, makes my face look rosy and glowing, exfoliates and hydrates at the same time and it's easy to apply. All my products are Skinceuticals and I'm very happy with the results.

The product works wonderfully and leaves my skin feeling so smooth. The best part is that a little goes a long way. Too much applied will leave skin feeling greasy.

I was disappointed with this product. Didn't notice any difference in my skin with it in my regimen. I use other SkinCeuticals products that work much better for me.

I received a sample. I am using it in the morning after vitamin C. It goes on smoothly. No irritation. Moisturizer after Activator. I use retinol every other night . No problem with the combination.

I've been using this for years and I love it! I only use SkinCeuticals and have been on Retin-A for a decade. This product smoothes my skin, gives it a healthy color and glow and does not irritate my super sensitive skin. I apply after C serum; in the winter, I use Metacell Renewal as AM moisturizer but in the warmer months I switch to Advanced Pigment Corrector for my Melasma. Even with a strong exfoliating agent the Retexturing Activator keeps my skin hydrated so I don't need a moisturizer. Great product!

For over 10yrs this product has kept acne and dark spots in check, kept moisture in and made my face look rosy checked and healthy. Will not go a day without it!

Just started using it so I am not sure yet how effective it is, but it has definitely not irritated my skin and I use it in conjunction with retin a.

Is the 1st time in 15 years that a Skinceuticals product irritates my skin. After 2 months of applying it only once a day I had to stop using it. Each and every time I used it, my skin felt a burning sting, In addition, it gave my face an extremely glossy look; so much that if I didn't apply makeup people always told me "you are sweating". It made my skin smoother and helped even my skin tone but for me it was not worth the pain I felt when the Activator touched my skin.

After I started using retinol, I noticed that my skin was becoming excessively dry, scaly, red and itchy. My normal moisturizer wasn't cutting it anymore. So I bought this product, and used it in combination with the B5 gel and the Emollience moisturizer. I will forever use these products, within a few uses, I noticed a substantial difference in my skin texture. After a few weeks, my skin is back to being hydrated and not red and scaly! I will continue to purchase this product!

Have been using it for years. Makes my skin softer and smoother. I have very sensitive skin but so far my skin doesn't have sensitive reaction to this product.
