This has been amazing for my acne-prone skin, even for the deeper lumps that don't come to a head. I've used epiduo in the past but I was sick of the benzoyl peroxide bleaching everything I own. Decided to just try a regular retinol and I'm really impressed. After the first night of using it, my skin was already getting clearer and more even toned. The acne I had was flaking off. My skin was not irritated. Caution though, you should start slow. I was a little gungho with this when I saw such amazing results and ended up using it 3 nights in a row before I backed off. Good thing I did because at that point my skin started to start peeling. It wasn't so bad but definitely could've been avoided if I had gone a little slower.
I like the consistency of this product as well. It sinks right into my skin without leaving it feel greasy or sticky. I'd prefer it not to have alcohol or the green coloring, but I can live with it for now.

Accelerates skin renewal

It works to accelerate skin renewal but beware of irritation caused in the beginning and use only every couple of days to see how your face reacts.
Green cream & Unagel
Posted 4/1/2014 by Jacquelyn
I've had problematic skin since my late teens, I'm now 25 and I feel like I've tried everything...over-the-counter and prescription topicals, oral antibiotics, eliminating dairy from my diet...nothing seemed to give me improvement. After someone recommended Green Cream to me, I started with level 3, didn't notice a huge difference, but kept using it. Read the review below me and decided to try the level 6 and bought the Unagel to use in the morning as opposed to my Cerave moisturizer. My skin has been peeling a bit as it's adjusting to the higher concentrate, but it's been a couple weeks of consistent use and the combo has been incredible. Not a single break out since I began this regimen. Highly recommend! Make sure you're patient and continue use though while your skin adjusts! Worth it.

Been using it for about 7-10 days, skin is noticably clearer! Pores seem smaller, skin seems smoother. Haven't broken out so far! I applied it every night starting out, didn't get irritated., but some with more sensitive skin should look out at first. All in all, great product!!

over 2 years

I've used this product for over 2 years, after I decided it was time to take my skin care seriously and I had developed stubborn adult acne. After a few months, it cleared the acne (went through a fast stage of increased oiliness) shrank my pores, and smoothed and evened my skin!! I have to bump down to level 3 in the winter (occasionally using L6 or mixing the two).The results are amazing. This one absorbs more quickly into the skin than the other retinols I've tried, and I'm convinced that this minimizes irritation!
Extremely effective and gentle

If you are hesitant to try GC because of some of the questionable reviews, I would suggest visiting their website and speaking with the moderator via the message board. They are very helpful and will answer all of your questions/concerns. I love the product and have been using it for 9 months now.
Stick with it

In regard to the poster who only used the product for 8 weeks...IMHO it takes anywhere from 2-4 months to begin seeing real results. Patience grasshopper:)
This stuff is great!

I'm extremely pleased with the results I got using this cream. After only a month, my adult acne is significantly reduced, and my overall skin tone is noticably better. I'm really glad I found this product and will continue to use it.
