Remarkable Repairer 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.

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

Ms 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.

Another essential in my arsenal! 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!

Another winner 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.

Retinol Raves 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.

Always 5 stars for this 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.
5 5stars
Great product 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.

Nightly use I have been using the 1.0 retinal complex for several years. It is very effective and works well with a little moisturizer.
5 5stars
Great over the counter retinol 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.
5 5stars
Excellent product 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!
5 5stars
Every Night 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.
5 5stars
update Great product. I use the 1.O alternating with the .50. I use every other night. I buffer the 1.0 with a moisturizer.
5 5stars
Great used with TNS Serum I use the 1.0 because my skin is very tolerant and doesn't irritate easily. Plus, I'm impatient and want results twice as fast! I've used it for a week and my skin feels great. I can see the effects already.

Best ever Makes my skin look amazing
5 5stars
Amazing My dermatologist recommended this line. She said the retinol has a molecule perfect for penetrating into the skin & delivering results. My skin looks great when using this- brighter & firmer.
5 5stars
hopeful I jumped to the 1.0 too soon. I used the .5 every night with little trouble. I bit of dryness that went away. I used the 1.0 two nights in a row. Not a good idea. My face was swollen and chapped. I will let it heal and try again with a bit of neutral face cream mixed with the 1.0 as advised by my SkinCareRx person. I will only use 2 times a week until I adjust. I will say a very dark age spot that was large and in the middle of my right cheek is almost gone! I will report back later.

2 weeks I have only used this item for 2 weeks and see brighter skin. Deep mouth lines are less apparent. I was actually happy when I had flaking in the morning. It went away after a few days. It was definitely doing its job.

Skinmedica vs Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0 After slowly working up to use every night for 30 minutes over six months under the supervision of my dermatologist, I decided to alternate every other night with Skinmedica's (SM) and Skinceutical's (SC) Retinol 1.0. The products are very similar in content, texture and glide, and both have additional good stuff for the skin. SC does have a couple of non-retinol ingredients that, while potentially sensitizing, aren't deal breakers with after-use of a good moisturizer and sunscreen. However, I've found I can use SM every night with less irritation than SC used similarly. When I alternate SM and SC, I can see more slight flaking on SC nights. I also prefer SM's packaging. I'm curious how much product, in comparison, I'll be able to get from each package (SC's tube lasts about three months with every other day use). In my humble opinion, Skinmedica's Retinol 1.0 is the better product and will be my new go-to for near-prescription strength retinol.

Retinol 1.0 product by skinmedica Great product! Love the affect it has on my skin but I agree that it is too strong to use daily. Every other 2 days works best for me. Results are amazing!
5 5stars
Best Retinol Have been using this retinol for several years. When used correctly, it works miracles on lines and wrinkles. Light and easy to apply as well!

Powerful I got this retinol in a travel kit before buying the full size. It is powerful stuff. Be sure to follow directions, but it is great!
5 5stars
Great retinol product This is a great product at a great price. You do have to be careful if you are not used to retinol but it is more mild than using straight Retin A. It is absolutely the best thing you can use for better skin.
5 5stars
Pay attention If you are new to using retinol make sure to follow all the warnings you read about this particular product. I used too much to quickly and really irritated my skin. Once my skin calmed down the results were good. Gradual is best. Begin with lesser strength and slowly work up to this strength.
5 5stars
SkinMedica Retinol 1.0 Complex A very effective product but you definitely need to use caution when introducing it into your skin care regimen as it can dry your skin. Twice a week with at least three days in between usage is recommended.
5 5stars
This is the one Great product to use 2-3 times a week. Keeps pores clear too.
5 5stars
My favorite! My favorite skin care product! I've been using this for a couple years now. I really like the consistency of the product (not too thick, and it's smooth), it comes packaged in a pump bottle which is sanitary and keeps the ingredients stable, and I never have problems with redness or peeling.
5 5stars
Very happy! I alternate this product with the .5 formula. Initially, I had some peeling with the 1.0 but I chalk that up to not gradually adding it to my regimen. The peeling was negligible - around my hairline only. I never experience any reddening of the face.
5 5stars
SWEAR BY THIS PRODUCT This product delivers as promised. I would recommend that you do heed the instructions and build up slowly to daily use or every other day (depending on your personal skin sensitivity). If you aren't cautious, you will definitely peel. This product leaves my skin looking refreshed and glowing. The dullness is gone. This will remain a staple in my skincare routine.
5 5stars
Great product I still don't know which one is better this from Skinmedica or Skinceuticals retinol 1.0... I think Skinmedica is more complete with great other anti aging ingredients. But the one from Skinceuticals acts faster. But in the end I think you will have the exactly same results.
5 5stars
Hightly recommend I started out with the .25% strength and worked up to the 1%. Really like it! No irritation, no peeling...just fresh looking dewy skin. I highly recommend this product.

Wow it's strong This is the strongest retinol I have ever used. You will peel. Can't use it every night. It's so strong about 2 times a week.

Great results I am sixty five years old. I find this product very gentle, but effective in reducing lines.

Great product My skin is peeling in certain area, helping me to get rid of my old skin seeing great results.
5 5stars
Not for sensitive skin I thought I'd try this strength because I don't think the lesser strength worked on me. Well, I used this two times, with a day off in the middle, and it burned my skin. In the future, I may try it for an hour or so to build up my tolerance, but don't think I will be purchasing this again.

Tri Retinol This Retinol product is extremely potent. The strongest I have ever used. In fact it is so aggressive I can't use it. This is my least favorite Skin Medica product I've tried. I much prefer IS CLINICALS Pro Heal serum with Retinol. Produces beautiful effect without irritation.
3 5stars
My favorite retinol so far Started out with the 0.5 concentration and then tried a couple other brands. After coming back with the 1.0, I realize how good this product is. Not irritating and my skin looks bright and refreshed. I definitely recommend this product.

I love SkinMedica products! My husband uses this product. He has received many complements on his skin since using Skinmedica retinol 1.0 along with the skin brightening complex. These products have taken about 10 years off the appearance of his face!

LOVE this product I love this product. I do experience drying with it so I use it every other day. It has made such a tremendous difference in my skin with the combination of Lytera. My skin is more even.
5 5stars
So far so good I have extremely fair skin and suffer from rosacea, so I was a bit hesitant to try this product for fear it would irritate my skin. However, so far my fears are unfounded. I have been using this product for about two weeks now with no bad side effects. It also seems as if some of my fine lines are starting to fade away, or at least they appear less noticeable to me. I will keep using and hope for even better results!
4 5stars
Great so far I bought this based on other reviews and am glad I did. I have very pale skin and suffer from rosacea and was worried that I might have a bad reaction to this product, but fortunately I did not. I have some small lines and wrinkles and think I am starting to see some improvements.

Retinol 1.0 Love love this retinol. Definitely see a difference! My skin looks firmer. This is my 2nd bottle.
5 5stars
Wonderful! Works better than prescription strength. So much gentler on skin that I'll stick with this one. Be careful around eye area. Helping my acne prone skin. LOVE the pump. Measures the exact amount you need. Not too much or too little, just right.
5 5stars
Works with Sensitive Skin I have sensitive skin and cannot use a lot of products, but I have not had any redness or breaking out with this product. Having previously used Green Cream, I can use the Retinol 1.0 every night without any peeling. The product's texture is moisturizing enough that I do not have to put moisturizer on after every use.
4 5stars
It's Working!! I have sensitive skin and, therefore, can currently only use this product three times a week. However, I am impressed with the results! I had previously been using Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion, which was non-irritating and I liked it, but decided to give this product a try. I am so glad that I did! I do use a moisturizer on top of the retinol - after waiting approximately 30 minutes. Also, I did start out with the .25 strength and work up to this stronger formula.
5 5stars
Retinol 1.0 Love this product. Effectively works to eliminate wrinkles and even skin tone. It's just as effective as RX retin A!
5 5stars
Seems to work I started to use this retinol because most other RX retinols had paragons and other not so nice chemicals. Appears to work just as well as RX.

Retinol 1.0 Love this product!! Great for acne prone skin!
5 5stars
Retinol 1.0 This product is great on my skin, which is oily and acne-prone. It helps clear up and prevent blackheads as well and leaves my skin feeling smooth.
5 5stars
Best Retinol This is the best retinol formula available. Extremely effective and potent. I use following my TNS Serum every night. Smooths skin and softens lines. Excellent exfoliator. Can't go without it!
5 5stars
As good as a prescription I like using this product because it's as good as a retin-a tube your doctor prescribes you. I'm being honest. It's got the strength and delivers the results. It's pricey but it's an investment in your future and well worth it. Also, a little bit goes a long way so it lasts. It will help your skin peel and eventually give you a new glowing look. You've got to be patient though as it's strong and will make you peel. Stick with it and it'll give you what you're looking for.
5 5stars
The best This is the best retinol solution I've ever used. I only use it every other night after I apply my TNS Essential Serum. It works very well!
5 5stars
One of my favorites Who doesn't want younger looking skin? This is amazing! Like some other reviewers I started with the 0.5 and worked up to the 1.0. I love this product.
5 5stars
Awesome! This really is effective on my skin. Really helps with cell turnover.
5 5stars
It's Great! I started using Retinol 0.5 a few months ago and I loved it. Now I am up to 1.0 and love seeing the difference in my skin. It's a miracle worker. I use it everyday in the evening before bed.
5 5stars
This is the real deal 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.
5 5stars
Effective 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.
5 5stars
Wouldnt Be Without It 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!

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.
