So far so good

This retinol has been great in that it hasn't irritated my face at all-a first for a retinol product for me.
I have very sensitive rosacea skin and this is the only retinol product that I have ever found that was both effective and gentle at the same time.

I just used this product for one month and I can feel my acne dark spots are disappearing. This is so nice! I can't wait t use Retinol 1.0!!

it doesn't dry me out or irritate me or whatsoever. I just feel good about this! Used once only. Will continue to use and wait for the amazing result

Very mild but don't let that fool you…I'm beginning to notice a definite improvement in my 60+ skin. I steered away from retinols in the past due to irritation, etc., but have found this product to be a gentle workhorse.
SkinMedica Retinol 0.25
Posted 12/31/2015 by happy camper
Perfect for my sensitive albeit thick facial skin. I use it every other night with SkinMedica's Sheer Moisturizer. On alternate nights, I use Essential Serum followed up with Rejuvenation Moisturizer. Of course, Fullfill is the first product I apply every night. The retinol I use is a good consistency and my skin looks fresher and feels silky soft. I am considering using it more often, but think why would I make changes when what I'm doing works. As always five stars ***** for SkinMedica and their extraordinary customer reps at skinCareRx.

Great product to ease into a Retinol regimen!
good for under eye

Excellent product, gentle retinol delivery in a smooth creamy lotion. Not too harsh for sensitive skin.

I've been using this product every other night for 2 weeks now and it's wonderful. It hasn't irritated my skin or dried it out. I would recommend this product especially if it's your first time using retinol.
Gentle retinal treatment

Good so far, only used 4 times. No irritation. Will review after longer usage.

My skin care doc recommended this product and I use it every morning. Results are noticeable.
Oh! what a feeling!

Best retinoid I've ever used. Retinol .25 is a perfect starter. It feels good going on and feels like it's actually doing something without burning and that nasty redness is absent. Also, your reps are extremely pleasant, courteous and competent. Five***** for product and vendor.

I received a sample of SkinMedica retionoid and loved it. However, I needed another Essential Serum and could not afford to buy both. To my delight, a travel bag came as a gift. Anyway, I did finally purchase the retinol complex .25. I tried one application and it felt marvelous; there was also a physical feeling that it was actually doing something! And....no redness appeared. So, I remain a happy camper other than the fact my derm does not want me to start incorporating retinods into my regimen until August. The staff is so pleasant to deal with, I enjoy placing orders with them. Some internet providers I call in the morning sound like either they're suffering from a caffeine deficiency or are in need for little hair of the dog.
Anyway, my conversations seem to get more tangential with age. Five Stars***** for skin medica and SkinCareRx.!
Great for Hand

I use the SkinMedica Retinol Complex .25 for the top of my hands nightly. I figure if it works for the face it should work for the hands. I'm 64 years young and have no brown spots on my hands. Keep in mind, it's important to use sunscreen on your hands daily.

Since purchasing this product a month ago, can already see a difference in the size of my pores. Also, surprisingly this low strength did not cause me to break out or peel. Well worth the money!

This is the perfect strength of retinol. I have been using retinol on and off for years and every time I started using it again, I would break out. It was too strong.
This strength is perfect. It gives you a beautiful glow, minimizes brown spots and gets rid of wrinkles as well as working as a preventative. This strength did NOT break me out. I was pleasantly surprised. I love this product.
It's working on my acne
Posted 5/1/2015 by Jaya
I have been worried with acne last one year. Nothing worked. I am happy that after I start applying this product my acne stopped coming. I still have to see better results after few months of application. I am a first time user and able to apply almost every night.
Inexpensive and effective

This one is a bargain. It has 0.5 retinol and does its job.
Posted 1/31/2015 by diamondgirl7
I first tried the Skinmedica .5 retinol and found it to be a bit strong for my mature skin. I decided to give this lower strength a try and have been happy with the results. After using it (every other night), I apply a Skinmedica moisturizer. After my skin becomes more acclimated (and warmer weather arrives) I hope to resume using the stronger strength. I am impressed with the SkinMedica line and love SkincareRX prices!

First retinol product I have been able to use every day - I have very sensitive skin - only been using for a month along with the TNS essential serum in the morning but very hopeful! I will update in a few months. Don't be afraid to try.
Super sensitive skin
Posted 11/14/2014 by Ayami
I have never been able to tolerate Retin A. My skin reacts to everything...except this product. So far, I am encouraged. I use it every third night. I think I will be able to step it up. I know I will have to be patient but it will be worth it.
