Did you find this review helpful?
Easy to apply, spreads great.
No skin irritation. The consultant helped me pick the correct level to use and gave thorough instructions on use!
I have only been using a week so I am not sure of the long term benefits yet but it is a very potent retinol and at the same time it does not seem to leave my skin as red and dry as other retinols I have tried in the past .
I use this product every night after my serum. I can see my dark spots have been faded. My skin is not irritated. I think I might have to go up to 1.0 to see more improvement.
I have been using this product for just under 3 months. I worked up to every night. Skin is looking good.
I like the .5 so much I ordered again before I needed it. I was told the shelf life is 2 years. I Couldn't pass up the sale price.
I'm back to using the .5 I will use every other night. My deep lines have really improved and my age spot on my cheek has really faded. I am using a program of Skinmedica and Skinceuticals. So far so good. It has only been 5 weeks and I am very pleased.
I started with the .5 and had very few problems. Just a bit of dryness that went away after a few days. Went to the 1. Made the mistake of 2 nights in a row. I look like I have a bad sunburn. 3 days later my face was swollen even my eyes. Just like if you got a bad burn from the sun. Did not use it on my lids only the lower orbit bones. Will send back the 1 for the .5. Saw a nice change in my skin until the more powerful stuff burned me.
My skin looks great! People have told me my skin looks great! Will try higher strength.
