I began using this a few months ago and have noticed smoother more even skin. It does help with fine lines, but at 58 fine lines are a bit more pronounced :) I have used this after dermatology procedures for pre-skin cancer (not right away). It has helped reduce healing time and scarring. This is definitely a 10 for Replenix. Please note if you have sensitive skin to start with the lower strength first.

Love this product. I had to work up to it. When my dermatologist prescribed it, it made my skin sore, and I couldn't use it on my dry sensitive skin. I started with the 2X and then moved on to the 5X and now I'm using the 10X almost every night. I can use it for 4 or 5 consecutive days before my face becomes sore; then I don't use it for one night, and usually I can go back to it after skipping one day.

I graduated to this after starting with 3x and then 5x. I use it once a week and rotate with the other strengths. No major peeling despite the strength, but definitely I can see skin turning over when I look closely. So be aware that it's like super buffered retin a. You will get flakes etc. that's why I alternate! This line is very worthwhile and does what it promises. My skin has never looked better.

I really like the Replenix products. This Retinol has an interesting texture; a bit gritty but goes on softly and smoothly. Because of the texture, it's hard to tell if I've covered my face enough but it works just fine. I like that it hasn't irritated my skin even though it is a 1.0 concentration of retinol.

I switched to this product after using a SkinMedica retinol product. In addition to smoothing my skin, it also provides plenty of hydration. If I forget to follow up with moisturizer, no matter. It felt grainy the first few weeks of use, but now goes on smoothly.

I have used this product for about 3weeks now and it makes my face feel softer. I am one to break out from new products but not this one!

I have been using this nightly for a couple years now. Love the way it makes my face look & feel.

I am almost finished with my first purchase of this cream, and just reordered. I am 60 years old, and I spend a lot of time outside. I inherited some youthful skin from my mother, however, 60 is 60, and I have to protect and nourish my skin. The cream was initially irritating, and some tenderness and peeling happened, so I backed off to every other day, but after a few weeks that eased up, and then I noticed how my skin became so smooth, and just glowed in the morning! I am definitely sold on this product!
Sunscreen, Sunscreen, Suncreen

This works very well provided you start slow or start at a lower dosage. I used this twice a week for a month and only on clean and completely dry skin. I noticed a lightening of hyper-pigmentation as well as an overall smoothness to my 47-year-old skin. However ALL benefits disappear if a sunscreen with a high SPF and broad spectrum coverage isn't used every single morning without fail.
Replenix Retinol Plus

I had a accident 2012 that left a very long scar on the left side of my face. Replenix Retinol Plus has helped diminish the red hard scar. Every week I notice a difference. I am so pleased with what a bottle has given me that a plastic surgeon could not.

I really love this 10X product! I use it at night and when I wake up. My skin feels bright and smooth! Just purchased another bottle!

Have only used the product for a couples weeks, but so far it is the best retinol cream I have found. Does not seem to be near as harsh and drying as others I have tried. Seems to really smooth out your skin.

I love trying new products and Retinol 10x is absolutely without a doubt the best on the market for my purposes. I have sunspots and a few wrinkles although I'm now over 45 and fairly nice skin. This product after only a short time using it has already shown more improvement in overall skin tone, brightness, evening of darker areas, tightening pores, smoothing texture and literally removing wrinkles than any other product I have ever used - ever!! Each of us has different skin and therefore lots of different reactions/reviews. Initially I experienced some tingling and drying but that means it's actually working. After slight drying and peeling....the skin (new skin) exposed underneath is absolutely beautiful. My skin has never looked better even when I was in my 20's...no kidding!! It's bright, healthy and beautiful. Thank you for the excellent product. Don't change a thing.....please!!!

I just received another shipment of this product, it seems that the inconsistencies written about below have been ironed out. This product has made a huge difference in the appearance of my skin.

I am on my 3rd reorder of this product and still love it. I did have drying/peeling/redness in the beginning and switched to using it every other night sometimes every third. Once my skin got accustomed to the product I could use it every night, but I choose to alternate nights with a skin lightener instead. I have not had any issue with pumps or inconsistent results however I will start checking for an expiration date.

I have used both Tazorac and Retin-A in the past and both caused peeling and irritation. I have gotten great results with the Replenix 10x serum with no irritation or peeling. I am very acne and clog prone with oily skin and I love this product.

I love this product. 9 months ago I started using the 2x on the advice of my dermatologist who says everyone over 40 should use a retenol product. I was buying it from the dermatologist until I found skincarex. This is the cheapest place I have found to buy it. I have recently started using the 10x and am very happy. My skin looks younger and fresher.

Recently started using this product after going through a bottle of the 5x first. I love the smoothing/pore reducing/brightening/acne preventing/spot reducing effect of this product (much more effective than the 5x). However, I want to ask if anyone else finds the consistency weird?? I don't know why it is called a 'serum' because mine is thick and pasty. It takes 3-4 pumps to cover my face and I end up with residue stuck in the lines in my fingertips. Am I getting bad bottles, or is this how the consistency is supposed to be?

I started with the 3x and worked my way up to the 10x. Does anyone know the actual percentage of retinol contained in these products?
Thanks for the info Carly

I hadn't considered that, but then again I don't really get in the sun that much. When I head to the beach I'll keep it in mind :)

Hi, I just wanted other readers to know that it is NOT recommended to use Retinol in the day. Exposure to sunlight will actually degrade the retinol making it completely ineffective and/or cause a reaction on the skin. If you are looking for a good foundation primer, save your Replenix Retinol for night and use the Colorescience Line Tamer or Wild to Mild.
Posted 11/12/2008 by Di Fleming
I started out using the mild and then went to 5. Now I want 10X. I have been trying to get this product for months. What can I do? Help!
Worth the price

I have several inflammation problems about my face and this product has been VERY good at keeping it toned down. I have psoriasis and acne and enlarged pores (lucky me, I know) and this product has worked wonders. The key is to use it every single evening. I also have begun using it as my day moisturizer and I have found it to be a wonderful primer for under foundation. It smoothes out the face as good if not better than any primer on the market that I have used--with the added benifit of the retinol and green tea. If you have acne prone skin with enlarged pores and inflammation this product may work wonders for you as it has for me.

I have been using Replenix for about 2 years. I kept coming back to this product (replenix 10x) after subjecting myself to Retin A- toooo harsh for my skin. Now I am applying Replenix 10x with caffene. It works great without the irritation and dryness associated with Retin A/Retinol products. The short list of ingredients goes a long way. Pure Quality!!
