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.

Love this product. Effectively works to eliminate wrinkles and even skin tone. It's just as effective as RX retin A!
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.

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.

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!
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.

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!
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.

This really is effective on my skin. Really helps with cell turnover.

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.
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.

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.
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!
