about the product

Green Cream High Potency Retinol is an effective treatment for the following conditions:

- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Acne & acne scarring
- Age Spots & pigmentation
- Minimizing appearance of pores
- Repairing sun damaged skin cells
- Improving skin tone & texture

Green Cream 0.9% 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. Green Cream 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.

One very pleasant 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.

how to use it
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.

Gave me back my eyebrows!!!
Was this helpful?
I am beyond gratefull this product was made. I'm 35, I've had overly oily skin since I was about 13/14 and had beautiful full thick eyebrows that slowly started dissapearing when I was about 19 and I thought it was for overplucking. Fast forward several years and I decided to use Green Cream, I noticed a difference within 2 days, smoother skin. I kept using it, noticed less oil, smaller pores and then I noticed after 2 months my eyebrows were growing in again!! I was sooo happy I wanted to cry! My skin was so congested, THAT was the reason my eyebrows stopped growing! I've noticed for about a month that my skins improvement came to a halt, so then I realized I needed either something stronger than level 9 (I started off with this level) OR use it twice a day. So now I've been using twice a day and my skin has continued to improve. My skin has always been extremely hard to treat, NOTHING worked for me, I've tried expensive acne systems to store products. I don't have acne but my huge pores and extremely oily skin have been a nightmare especially because of the Texas weather. This product doesn't give me dry skin nor irritates, it gave me a teeny bit of creppiness for about 2-3 days but I didn't realize I could put moisturizer on top after 10 minutes of application. All in all I LOVE this product and hope they never stop making it!
Great Product

This stuff is awesome, I have been using this about 2 wks every night and I can not believe the difference. I have oily and acne prone skin and I can already tell my pores look smaller and my skin is clear. I would not recommend all skin types to use this nightly, my skin is not very sensitive
Greatest Product on the Market

I have been using Green cream for many years, it took several years to build up to level 9. I am 61 and have been using for over 6 years, I don't have to wear makeup because this product makes my skin look fantastic, very few wrinkes around my eyes and that's all. You just have to stick with it in to see the results, like exercise, but you will love it!
Love it!

I've been using green cream for years and love it. I've been at level 9 for awhile now. My pores are smaller - My complexion is brighter and I'm sure I've avoided some lines as well. When I first started using it a friend thought I was wearing foundation - But I wasn't. I highly recommend Green Cream.
AWESOME! But be patient-- this is strong stuff.

I've been using green cream about 5 years now. I am 53 and I have far fewer lines around my eyes than I had when I started. In fact I hardly have any lines at all. Dermatologists are in awe-- no kidding. I had to have a tiny BCC on the inside rim of my eyelid removed a couple years ago. As the anesthesia was kicking in I heard the nurses saying "OMG she has great skin, and she's HOW OLD?" People who have trouble with Green Cream need to know that: 1) you have to work up VERY SLOWLY. Start with Level 3 twice a week, then work up from there. The irritation will sneak up on you if you don't. You'll think , Oh, my skin is taking this really well, let's just slather it on-- then you wake up with what looks and feels like a bad sunburn. Don't Do It. It took me over a year to work up to Level 9 and it was darn worth it. 2) you may get some zits at first. This is your pores purging out all the gunk. Eventually it will stop. It helps to use some BHA lotion to help solubilize the oils in your pores and clean them out faster. (I use Paula's Choice BHA lotion.) 3) Don't use it on your neck or upper chest at first. The skin there is very sensitive and it will go nuts. Start with level 3 there and use it very, very sparingly and with moisurizer. I put level 9 on my neck a couple times a week now, but I've been on this stuff for years, as I said.
Still looking for a good retinol

I started with green cream level 6 and really liked the results after about 6-8 months of continuous use, so I figured the level 9 would give me even better results. Well, for starters, I have very fair skin, and the level 9 was a runnier consistency and turned my skin to a greenish-yellow color after application. The cream also started to leak out of the base of the pump. I am thinking I may have just received a bad batch, not sure. But I do know I will need a retinol that does not have dyes that will change the pigment of my skin, the level 6 did not do that, so I may just go back to using their level 6.

Why would you want to put a surface thining (exfoliating) product on your skin that contains dyes, I think Red dye number 40 was named a carcinogen...we don't need dyes for pretty color or to fit the name (add green tea extract instead), we just want results! What is this "may contain" BS, does it or doesn't it.

I don't think the problem is especially about red dye #40. I was surprised to see near the end of the ingredient list that there are two forms of parabens used, and these are considered to be estrogen pretenders. It's not entirely proven yet, but these parabens are suspect in many types of breast cancers, since parabens have been found in breast tissues of women with breast cancer. Also, Denmark, and possibly other EU countries have banned the use of these, or limited their use. I will use this product, but will not buy more unless it is reformulated to exclude parabens.
The reason it is green 0

Green Cream is tinted green for a reason - it is green to help counteract and neutralize any redness or pink-ness that may arise from retinol usage.

We don't need this neutralizing effect, which is minimal anyway. It is not a foundation, nor is it a foundation primer. It should not be expected to have the skin color correction effect. And exactly how effective it is in neutralizing the redness? I personally did not notice any difference comparing green cream with other retinol product such as Skinceuticals' retinol. Suggetion to the company: remove the dye or at least offer a dyeless version. Many people choose to switch to other brands because of it. I love the Green Cream, sans the dye.
WOW!!!!

I also bought this product based on reviews to reduce the size of my pores on my nose and suronding area. What a difference!!! I use it once to twice a day without any problems. But the best part is that I have a scar from chickenpox that is 30 years old and it is actually getting less noticable!!!! This is now a permanant part of my routine!!!
love green cream!

I use it every night and my skin peels off like crazy every morning, pores are diminishing..though not that much..do not see effect on the wrinkles/fine lines; if you have acne problem I would recommend to use Diacneal Skincare Lotion first and Green Cream after the problem is solved.
It does work

When I bought this product and used it the first night, I had seen results on my nose. My pores began to diminish. I was using the product back to back and did not have any problems, but I forgot to use suncreen when I went outside and it burnt my face. I had to use moisturizer for about a week. Now I apply it only when I see a breakout is about to occur or before my monthly is about to come on so it can prevent any acne. This isnt my first time using retinol. I had used it with the acnefree kit, but they do not sell the retinol separate and I refuse to buy the whole kit for one little yube. Now the only con I have with this product is that it leaves my face alittle oily and it is green, as well as, have ingredients that are illegal I believe in other countries! It works though and I am happy about that. P.S. DO NOT PUT ON YOUR NECK!! I MESSED UP AND I BROKE OUT AND GOT SICK!!

I always mix my moisturizer and retinol together before I apply the product on my neck. I have found it doesn't irritate the sensitive skin.

Very strong, very effective Retinol cream. My dermatologist said that it is just as effective as any RX retinol. You may get a little skin irritation, but some cortisone cream works well if you have that problem.
Love it!! :)

I had really big pores on my nose and cheeks. Plus, my face was oily AND dry in different places. It was a nightmare to deal with. But the green cream retinol really evened everything out. Now my skin is smooth and moist. Not too dry and not too oily. I love this cream, it's all I use now!! Thanks
Well ill be damned!!!

Well it is actually pretty hard to find products that really do work any one who suffers from acne knows that. But believe it or not this really works it does exactly what it says it does. I know like most of us everyone wants those over night results but there is no product that works that way. Ive been using this for probably about 5 months and its pretty amazing to see how evenly toned my skin is and the amount of breakouts i get these days. My skin looks softer feels softer and is overall way better then it was before. Im a black male light complexion so anyone with darker pigment on the fence about this one its ok for us to. I would be lying to say that this one product has eliminated my acne but i can say i dont break out nearly as bad as i do and when i do break out its just one or two bumps that go away. So it plays its part in the regimen since i found this site i think i will actually be able to get my skin acne free!!! Sorry for the rambling. But take my word it does work!
noticable difference!

I have never tried a retinol product ever and found this to give good results without any undesirable effects. I started with the strongest Level 9 as I have used glycolic cleansers and my skin is not sensitive. I will agree with another reviewer..why the nasty color additives??? Dr. Nia..can't you take them out! Still love the product.

Retinol products are to be used as a night treatment, not under makeup. There's no need to include dyes or tints to counteract redness, plus regular users should not have any redness when used properly so there would be no redness to counteract.
works..but why the harmful color additives??!! 0

I also agree with other reviewers... PLEASE take out the harmful color additives(that are banned in some countries) Check out link--->http://www.feingold.org/Research/dyesinfood.html. I don't need to see green in order to think the product works. Use organic coloring through fruits and veggies.

I began using Green Cream 2 1/2 years ago as recommended by a plastic surgeon I was seeing for microdermabrasion. I have (make that had) skin that is oily with acne, acne scares, melasma, rosacea, moderately deep lines and wrinkles. My skin now looks 15 yrs. younger (I am 42). After a year of microdermabrasion I stopped because I noticed my products were working without having the expensive procedure done. I recommend the same products I use to my patients with my same problems. My not so secret skin regimen is: CLEANSER-La Roche-Posay Biomedic LHR; TREATMENT-MaMa lotion (starting new M2); alternating with Green Cream, MOISTURIZER-Toleraine; EYES-phytomer. Thank you SKINCARE RX, for making it possible to get all these wonderful products in one place and having some great coupons!
Wonderful!

I have been using this for 3 weeks now, and have noticed miraculous things with this product. 1) My malasma is fading. I had light malasma from taking bc, and have noticed it is getting lighter with green cream. 2) My blackheads are dislodging. I have a problem with blackheads and large pores on my nose, and I've noticed that green cream is helping shrink pore size AND helping blackheads come to the surface. 3) Skin texture is improving. Overall my skin is rosy, the collagen is improved, and the skin tone is evening out. Thanks Green Cream! P.S. This product is somewhat strong. Expect to see some light/moderate peeling. Take breaks if you are experiencing redness and peeling. Do not get facial waxing done when you're using this because your skin is very thin. Had my eyebrows done, and some skin was taken off. =(
a must have

I love Dr. Terezakis and her green cream. She recommended I use it, so I did over a year ago. I have turned this product on to all of my family and friends and they all love it. It is great for any age!! my mom and i both use it. It is great for wrinkles, acne,etc. your skin will look better in just a little bit of time, but you have to continue with it every day
My Holy Grail
