Results!

-April 2, 2013
I love this product and truly the one I can't live without. The results are amazing in new skin turnover. I use it at night only (it saves money)and I get results with a more conservative approach! i have found most all products will encourage 2 times a day but honestly this is one that night time only works!! Plus I have a different morning regime.
Gives me the results of Retin A (reduced lines, new skin, blotchy patches gone) but without drying, flakey redness.
I'm on my 3rd bottle, and saw a difference after finishing the first. The smell is yuck! Actually offensive...but, adding a moisturizer after to layer solves this. I gave it a 4 on cost due to the pump dispenser. The red product is gone before the white at the end if the bottle. (Only for about the last 3 uses before empty but still)
Costly. But results! I'm addicted...well my skin is :)

Great Product!

-November 10, 2012
I was hesitant in purchasing this product fearing it wouldn't produce the end results of the prescription only dermatologist brand I having been using. After just 3 uses I have noticed the results are the same and at a much more reasonable price!

It Peels....It Burns....Don't know yet if it works

-March 22, 2012
Well I have latino olive skin very resistant to anything so I decided to try this product. At first nothing happened but after the fourth try it burned and peeled to the point I almost went to the Doc. I have tried it 3 more physical times but I have to be careful to not put it close to the days I wash my hair because the steam and the shampoo will burnt my skin raw. The last time I did it some areas peel nicely but others still leaves my skin stremely dry and raw. I will contact the manufacturer regarding what moisturizer can I use to manage a better peeling. If you are used to retinols and can handle it this is the product to buy...it seems like it could work, but for me, other than uneven peeling the veredic still out. I have not seen fading in fine lines or fading of hyperpigmentation. I do know it will take a few months but need something in top of this retinol or after that will help with even exfoliation and moisturization. PS. the face continued to feel very dry even though I have always have a greasy face.

Burns your skin!

-November 9, 2011
I decided to buy this product after using the regular Tri Retinol Complex for a year. I figured this step up would not be a problem but I was wrong! I applied it the first time with burning and stinging. The next day I had major peeling and redness. I decided to wait a week before applying again. Same thing occurred. It took the week to end the peeling and redness. The third time I applied the product I woke up the next day to sores on my cheeks and burning when I put water on my face. This is WAY to harsh!! I would NOT recommend this product!!!

Very strong

-July 12, 2011
I've used the regular formula before without any problems. This one is realy extra strenth. I use it for two nights , then rest for one. It works for me , but someone with dry skin has to pair it with a moisturizer .

Consider This

-May 9, 2011
I love a lot of products by SkinMedica...but this one just didnt work for me. I used the Skin Medica Retinol one step down and that was fabulous, I thought I could graduate to this one and it was just too strong for frequent use. It caused a lot of dryness and to get the benefits you have to use frequently. Denpending on your skin this may work great, but as for me, I had to return and get the earlier version of SkinMedica retinol. (PS pump was also not funtioning, but always has worked in the past)

I like it!

-May 7, 2011
I've been using it for three weeks now and can't use it for more than 2 nights in a row, becaue it causes peeling and redness. So, I just take a break for couple of nights. But I love that I can see and feel the work it's doing on my skin. I bought it for hyper pigmentation, so far it lightens it up! Hope to see more positive effects soon!
