I find that the Skinceuticals 0.5 Retinol is all I need and probably will not step up to the 1.0 anytime soon. I have tried other brands of retinol, but so far like this much better. I use this product only twice a week and have had some peeling, but the longer I use this product the peeling has become much less. I use the Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 gel afterwards ( I usually wait 30 minutes …Read more

If you've ever used Retin-A, do not expect to be wowed by this one - or any other retinol cream for that matter. I picked this up because I found a good offer, with the purpose of trying it in the summer months, when the sunlight is very strong and I'd rather avoid using my Retin-A.

It is a lightweight cream with a velvety texture, kinda silicone-y. It spreads well, sinks in …

As with many other products, I buy it on ebay to get a better price. This product is fantastic for my face. I use it intermittently so as not to go overboard on retinol (for example, use it for a few months, then switch to an acid (alpha, beta, whatever) product for nighttime). Immediate results: smoother, clear skin with more even tone. Got a random compliment from a co-worker right after I …Read more

My skin loves retinol - I usually use Paula's Choice 1%, but I bought this after I ran out and had a Skinceuticals facial. It kept my skin looking as good as it usually does on the PC, until a week later when I started breaking out in huge swollen cysts - one to three a day. I thought it was hormonal for a few weeks (I get one like clockwork during PMS), but they just kept coming throughout …Read more

I'm not entirely sure I'll rebuy, but...
I've been using this Skinceuticals Retinol for about 4 months. Previously, I had used LRP's Redermic R for years, so I'm not new to the retinol rodeo, but the Skinceuticals-- even at this lower formulation-- is more powerful stuff.

Even four months later, I can only use this maybe 3x a week. When I first got it, I …

I've never Used a retinol product before this.
Initially I read to use once at night (pea size amount) all over the face. Then repeat it every 4 days for 1month. My skin felt dehydrated,red, started peeling, more sensitive. I used spf50 everyday. The days in between I used a really hydrating moisturiser cream.
2nd month I started using it every 2-3days. After 2nd month the peeling …

I used this retinol cream with success for mild wrinkles a few years ago. But now this retinol cream causes my forehead to breakout. I am begining perimenopause, so my hormones are all over the road. It is like being a teenager all over again, trying to tame my blackheads and acne.

Fantastic product! I was looking for a retinol product to use at night to ward of the first signs if wrinkles but have sensitive skin. This product is perfect for me!

I apply a pea sized amount to my face each night - just avoid the eye area. I then pop a mild moisturiser like Cetaphil or Dermaveen over the top after waiting a few minutes for the retinol to settle in.

My …

Recently I decided to incorporate a retinol into my routine as I'm looking to ramp up my anti-aging skincare, and given that fellow dry skinned ladies had given this a good review, I felt safe giving it a try.

I should note that I have extremely dry yet not sensitive skin, prone to hormonal breakouts., and very pink cheeks (possibly mild rosacea). My skin typically requires a …

I don't know about the bad reviews and it truly sucks for them but I love this so much. My skin started showing alil saggyness, with light wrinkles on my temples and eyes after I turned 30. This truly showed me a reversal of all that after one use. I thought it was maybe a fluke cus I own alot of products and rotate them...but it was always this that showed me the "BAM!" good …Read more
