- No Irritation Review by Lisa T
Love this product. I did apply 3 times a week and then went up to every night. No issues at all. When I finished this bottle I will move up to .55 (Posted on 11/3/16)
- Gentle Retinol Product Review by Mailene
This was my first time to use a retinol product. It was recommended by a Spa staff member as being the best strength to start. I use it about every 2 weeks and it doesn't dry out my skin or cause it to flake, but there is a definite improvement in the texture of my skin. I will probably try once a week and see if my skin can tolerate it. On the night I use it I don't usually apply any other products. (Posted on 8/25/16)
- Great Beginner Retinol Review by Lisa
I had not used retinol products and this was a recommendation. Following directions, I started applying every few days and built up from there after a week or so. I found little or no irritation and now use nightly. I love this product.
Not too greasy and blends with night creams
easily. Will probably try higher concentration
next time I purchase. (Posted on 5/30/15)
