First time with retinol

I’m really liking this product. First time retinol user, bought it to continue on with the results from my laser sessions. A little drying but not that bad. Started with the .50 and use every other night. Can’t wait to see the results!

Great retinol from SkinMedica. As we go into the summer months, be careful with sun, also if you find the retinol drying you can moiturize with Rejuvenating Moisturizer or Hydrating B5. Go slow with the retinol as a first time user or you will peel and maybe go red. Gradual entry is best advice.

Solid product

It’s my first time using a retinol product and I ordered the minimum dose .25%. I don’t see a huge impact so far but I probably need to give it more time. I have two small dark spots and scars from picking at my face that I was hoping the retinol will help diminish. Next time I will be sure to order a more concentrated dose.
