How To Use

In the evening, apply 4‐5 drops to clean dry skin, avoiding the eye area. Allow product to absorb before applying other skincare products. Limit initial use to once or twice a week, gradually increasing frequency to every other night, then every night as tolerated. It is recommended for new users to start with a Retinol 0.3 to establish skin tolerance. 

Retinol may increase photosensitivity. Always use a high-protection, broad-spectrum sunscreen when using this product.

    Just ordered my second tube of the 1.0. Had read all the reviews before ordering and thought my skin could take it everyday as I thought I was using a Retinol product and that my skin could handle it. Wrong. After all my research I realize that the ROC brand I use to use doesn’t even tell you how much Retinol is in it. Must not have been much. SkinCeuticals Retinol is really getting the job done. Love my smooth skin and the way my pores are so much smaller, My face is as sweet as a babies butt. I am in my 60’s and this product has put me back on track to newer, healthier skin. Absolutely LOVE it !

    I have only been using this product for about 2 weeks, but I can tell that it is working. However, I am very disappointed in how difficult it is to dispense. I have to pump it (slowly) multiple times to even get a tiny bit out. I have to pump it even longer to get the pea-sized amount out that is recommended. It will be difficult to know when the bottle is empty considering it seems that way each time I try to use it. With as expensive as it is, I would surely think that Skinceuticals could redesign the bottle to make it more user friendly. I’ve been looking at other products simply because of how frustrated I am with the bottle.

    I took a chance after having researched the difference between .05 and 1.0 Retinol–I purchased the latter and was extremely surprised at how well my face responded! In 2 short weeks of using my new product, I’ve noticed some fine lines that were on my upper lip now very faint …so excited! I have been very diligent about getting microderm facials once every month for the past 3 years but only see minor differences that last between 3-5 days but with this Retinol product so far I can already see that it has been an excellent addition to my daily/nightly skin ritual and can’t wait to see what happens next!
