I've been using retinols for decades and I think this is the best - but - you have to treat THROUGH the uglies. Previously, as soon as I would see flakey skin, I would stop using for a couple of days. This is not the best protocol for optimal results. If you continue to use the product, though maybe in smaller amounts or by applying a moisturizer first, you will be rewarded with amazing skin. When I started doing this consistently, every night, I couldn't believe the difference it made. It seemed to multiply the previous results, which were already really good. I love this retinol!

I recently tried using another brand's Retinol nighttime product. After a couple of month's I realized my skin just wasn't looking the same. Never again will I use any but SKIN MEDICA RETINOL Complex 1.0!!!

Spreads easily + only a small amount is needed. I use moisturizer on top of this as it's pretty powerful even though I only use it every other day. Skin appears more even in color + one large dark spot has lightened.

This works great on crows feet. I have noticed a reduction in how deep my wrinkles are in just a few weeks.

I have used a lot of different products for my dark spots. I have to say this is the one for me. My dark spots are fading quite a bit. I am very happy and will continue to use and buy it frequently.

Only an occasional bit of irritation.

I used this retinol 1.0 at night and used retinol .05 in the morning. I haven't seen any improvement yet. My age spots are so dark, I think I have to be patient for another few weeks to see the best results. I love the feel of my face after I applied it.

I've been using prescription .5 Retin-A for several years and decided to move up to try harder to remove the crow's feet. I've been using this product for almost a month now. My face has started to peel, just a little. It tells me that the skin is rejuvenating without the kind of horror that Fraxel creates. While I'm questioning all of the ingredients in this cream, I hope that it does work better and faster than the prescription-based .5 Retin-A.

I like the way it makes my face look and feel. It looks younger and smooth.

I started using this product a month ago and already see an improvement in my fine lines. I used a milder retinol for several years and was ready to step it up a notch. Retin-A is too harsh for me so this product is just the right strength for me.

I have been using retinoids of one kind or another for 20 yrs and this is one of the best medical grade ones I have ever used. More gentle than retin-a, so you can use it more often and still see a difference in skin clarity and fine lines!

This product is another winner in the SkinMedica line. I use it every night making sure I add a creamy moisturizer to my routine and of course sunscreen. A retinol product is essential to one's skin care routine and it does make a big difference to the fading of spots and the clarity of your skin. The prices on all SkinMedica products are great here at SkinCareRx.

I use this every other night and my skin is clear and smooth, most of the red spots are disappearing quickly. If your skin is not used to Retinol I suggest using it sparingly at first and always use a moisturizer. After a few weeks, your skin will acclimate to the retinol.

This retinol really lives up to its stars. I add a little moisturizer at night to keep my skin from drying out. I always order the 1.0 level of retinol. All of SkinMedica products are amazing.

I use this every night with no issues as long as I let my face get totally dry before applying it. Then there is no peeling and my skin stays very soft and clear. I am 71 and had lots of sun damage and this product has made a huge difference in my skin. Now I am very careful to follow with sunscreen every day. My dermatologist originally recommended this product but I get a much better price buying it from SkinCareRx.

I have been using the 1.0 retinal complex for several years. It is very effective and works well with a little moisturizer.

I try to use this most nights as my skin can tolerate it. My friends always comment on my youthful skin and I attribute it using the SkinMedica line.

I have combination skin and have been fighting inflammation and acne problems for years. Now that I'm in my forties my wrinkles and fine lines are another concern. This product is gentle, but very effective, improved all the above concerns, besides making my skin glow!

After using a few potent (1.0 - 1.5%), non-prescription retinols, I've come to the conclusion this is the best of the bunch. After six months, I'm now able to use this every night and my skin continues to improve in texture, brightness and evenness of tone. Be warned: slowly increase the frequency of use...it's powerful stuff.
