Directions PM

Use 4 pumps evenly on face and other areas twice a day. Use less frequently to build tolerance if a burning sensation occurs.

If you are new to ZO Retinol, we recommend starting with the 0.25% Retinol and slowly build up a tolerance.

Warnings

For external use only. Do not use if pregnant or lactating. Dryness, irritation and exfoliating will be seen during the first week of use. If rash or irritation develops and persists, stop use and consult a physician. Keep out of eyes. If contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with cool water.

Sunburn Alert

This product may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using the product and for a week afterwards. Keep out of reach of children.

Great but drying
1% is really strong, so we always recommend to introduce this product to your skin gradually. No need to use it every day. HydratingB5 is a great partner for this product. Stepping down to .5% retinol is also a good option. Enjoy your beatiful new skin.
