I started with the .3 and worked my way to .5. Seems to be working! I mix with night cream and my face does not get too dried out

Great product for fine lines and skin texture!

Great product and you can tell it’s medical grade, Use I r every other day so it won’t irritate my skin but I think it does a really good job on texture and fine wrinkles!

BEWARE: No order and no customer service

I never received my order so I emailed customer service for a refund and never got a response. Now I'll have to dispute the charge with my bank ((heavy sigh)). Very poor customer service.

This retinol lasts longer

This retinol lasts longer than I thought it would because you only need a little each time. I honestly do forget to use it sometimes, but find that when I do, after the initial period of skin purging, it seems to help some. I ramp up slowly over a few weeks as my skin is very sensitive, and I get dryness and some peeling/flaking, which sucks and is very atypical for me any other time. But, it makes me feel like it's working on fixing my skin, like the exfoliation is happening. Nothing is going away completely, but when I use it regularly, I find that it does help with the fine lines. I don't think it really does anything for pores IMO, since pores stretch and you can't un-stretch them of course, to my understanding. But, overall skin and lines look good with use. If I get to where I don't have periods of forgetting to use this, then I will move up to the 1.0.

Tube leaked everywhere :(

I was so excited to try the retinol .5 after using the retinol .3. I’m an esthetician and as soon as I got the sample of the retinol .5 from a spa, the tube was half empty and leaking! I’m an esthetician and wanted to try this out before recommending it to my clients because my clients wanted to know if it’s a good product or not.i can’t say because I haven’t been able to use this tube. I want to be able to tell them to try it, but I want to know if it works first

Worth all the money

I felt result after using it for two weeks and I recommended to my whole family. Game changer for a beautiful healthy looking skin. I wish I knew it earlier.
