Best treatment for evening out skins texture and its appearance! Used it for over 3 months now and my skin has never looked better. Certainly work up to it though, start on a lower percentage and then move towards the 8%

TreatmentThis us an amazing treat and i love the sample I have
Holy grailIncredible. I've tried countless retinols in the past and this has transformed my oily, dehydrated combination skin and improved fine lines. It's on the expensive side but definitely worth it.
Get it.Strongest Retinol you will buy. I love it.
Strong at resurfacing for sure and wake up glowing, was peeling at the beginning of using this product but a good type of peeling. Work it up to nightly use it's amazing and smells fresh/delicious! Very, very big difference in skin tone and pigmentation. Spreads and absorbs perfectly and absolutely diminishes fine lines, i use it as a spot treatment on my body and works 100%.
And extremely effective on cystic acne.
Fast resultsLove this product-It is not for the faint hearted though. I wanted to up my Vit A on my face and this definitely did that. I have used Vit A for years, but can not tolerate this strength more than 2-3 times a week. I am in my mid-30s and I have noticed a reduction in pore size and redness. Skin definitely feels firmer.
Amazing!This product took awhile for my skin to get used to it so I had to work my way up, but in the end the results are great! I haven't used a strong retinol treatment like this before, so you have to be patient with the time it takes for your skin to accept it.
Now my skin is feeling great :)
Lover of cosmedix retinolThese products don’t lie! I use this sparingly when not using define and this thinner consistency serum is great before bed. My skin is left feeling supple and dewy. Gentle yet effective exfol. Love it!

This is the strongest retinol treatment I have used and my skin took some getting used to it but once it did, the results speak for themselves..
Felt a bit grittyI worked my way up to this level of retinol and yes it is strong! Even I peeled and flaked despite having stepped up slowly. But I guess that shows it is working - making my skin renew. I only use it 2 days in a row, then rest for 1-2 days depending on how my skin is reacting. I nourish my skin on days I am not using this product with lots of hydrating product. I use about a pin head amount diluted with a tiny bit of water so that I can spread it better. I use it over clean skin and only AT NIGHT and cover up with a zinc oxide sunscreen in the day. Overall, my pores have lessen and my skin has a 'finer' texture to it. I also noticed that my pigmentation has lightened. I would recommend this only if you have slowly stepped up from a lower vitamin A content.
The best over-the-counter Vitamin A serum money can buyI've used heaps of retinol serums in my time but this is my favourite. Refine Plus is a really strong retinol product with 8% AGP, which is Cosmedix's patented delivery system. It works really well to help to retexturise and smooth out skin; normalise oil production; stimulate cell turnover; help to minimise pores; and reduce fine lines. Another important function of topical Vitamin A is to regulate and repair sun damage; and it is also a powerful antioxidant.
Umm there's not much I can say about using the product itself - it comes out a bright yellow colour like most retinol serums do. The pump dispenses a teensy amount, which I think is too conservative, so I'd use two pumps. I apply all over, concentrating on trouble areas with higher levels of congestion (eg chin and nose). It's important to avoid the eye area as this will really sting if it gets into eyes. Follow with moisturiser - if you don't moisturise over the top, your skin will become really dry and flaky.
My top tip is to start using this every second or third night and build up slowly to nightly use.
This is the strongest retinol in the Cosmedix range so if you are new to retinol serums, definitely do not start with this. You will only cause inflammation and you won't do your skin any favours. Start off with Define or Refine.
Miracle worker!This honestly worked wonders on my skin! I had really bad lines on my forehand however there are two products that I swear by. I use this every single night and use SkinCeuticals Serum 20 every morning. I have absolutely no line on my forehead now.
