This really works. This is professional grade retinol. I use it after TNS essential serum and Lytera per Skinmedica instructions. I use it only a few times a week. Note - a couple of days later, your skin will flake which is what you want but plan accordingly.

There aren't many skincare products out there really effective on my skin, and SkinMedia made it. My skin turns softer with nicer texture. Only one thing, if you have really sensitive skin, as I do, you might want to start with the lower concentration one and apply every other day in the beginning.
I use the 1.0 and the .05 Retinol interchanging them based on the degree of exfoliation desired. Higher applications of the 1.0 and more often will create a significant peeling which I do want on occasion but if I have public events to attend or a procedure coming up, I'll switch to the .05 and cut back on the number of days and that way I just get the amazing glow and plump to the skin and still treating my face to the Vitamin A. The product is very creamy and velvety and feels great going on and gives a slight warming effect after a minute or two. It feels (and looks) wonderful. There are many days that I use the retinol alone without added moisturizing as it hydrates perfectly too, leaving the skin pinkish, refreshed and glowing. A must have for me!
