Most Helpful Positive
This is one of the best retinol's I've tried. It helps keep my skin really clear and the skin tonne much more even. Even after being a long time retinol user, I still noticed the impact that this had on my skin when going from an alternative brand of similar strength.
Most Helpful Criticism
I really wanted to be wowed by this product but I feel a little underwhelmed by it. I haven’t noticed any changes in my skin at all. Maybe it’s more of a long term thing? I’m not sure but I’m a little cut up about it :(

Cosmedix Serum 16 Featuring LG-RetinexThis formula goes on smoothly, feeling face left moisturized, calmed, and smooth.
One of my favsThis is one of the best retinol's I've tried. It helps keep my skin really clear and the skin tonne much more even. Even after being a long time retinol user, I still noticed the impact that this had on my skin when going from an alternative brand of similar strength.
The only one that gives noticeable resultsI love this for so many reasons. It has a high degree of potency and the sustained release formulation does not make my skin peel like other retinol products. Best of all it is very moisturising and smells so good. The only criticism is that it’s expensive, I used Cosmedix and the tried a neostrata retinol but it didn’t give me the same outcome. I noticed that my skin look lacklustre after not using Cosmedix-16. This is my holy grail.
Fast results!I started using this product 2 weeks ago. After 3 nights I saw a huge difference in the texture, clarity and elasticity of my skin.
Probably the fastest results I’ve experienced! I have sensitive skin and this retinol serum is gentle enough not to irritate or cause any redness/reaction. I’ve experienced some light dry flaking around my mouth but I’ve been using the product nightly - so perhaps this could have been avoided if I introduced it more gradually.
Overall, I am absolutely loving it and will definitely purchase again!
Superstar Serum!I’ve been using this serum for a little over a month now and I’m obsessed! Initially I used it every third night but am now using it every second night (alternating with overnight acids) and have had none of the usual teething problems (peeling, purging, irritation) that accompany the introduction of retinol. My skin tends to be on the dry side so I follow this with a ceramide cream and wake up to smooth, glowing skin. Looking forward to seeing what the longer term results are but early signs point to this being my Holy Grail retinol product!
I like itI really like this serum, very hydrating
No 1 productNo other product has had such a noticeably positive impact on my skin. Be sure to start slowly, as it is an active product. I have tried other products but keep coming back to this
Better than prescription-strength.I purchased this product after realising that my skin was fundamentally incompatible with prescription-strength tretinoin, which would cause significant peeling and a burning sensation irrespective of frequency. I've achieved better results with this product in a shorter period of time. It takes a few weeks but it's worth it. Fortunately, I didn't experience purging.
Effective and non irritatingWas recommended this by my esthetician and it had resulted in my skin looking clearer of pigmentation and overall fresher. It’s non irritating but really effective I’ve repurchased multiple times now
Life ChangingWas recommended this by my skincare therapist. Nice product. easy to use. Would recommend easing into daily use. Great amount of retionol in here
I wish I had known about this product soonerI have been using this product for around 1-2 months, I know it takes about 3 months of using retinol to actually see a real difference, however I can already see a huge difference to my skin - it feels smoother and I can see a reduction in pore size.
Simple yet effectiveWas recommended this by my skincare therapist. Nice product. easy to use. Would recommend easing into daily use.
Does the jobThis definitely works as a powerful retinol treatment - in combination with dermal needling this has made a big difference to my pore size and skin texture! The fragrance does seem to sting my eyes a little but other than that it’s lovely to apply - a little goes a long way.
My go to retinolI have been using this product for a number of years and I think it has been a great preventative and to keep my pigmentation under control. It’s gentle on skin and I use it every second night. I wake up feeling like my skin is smoother.
AmazingI’m furious at myself for waiting so long before buying this. It’s so good! Not going to lie, I was a little dismayed at the size of the bottle when it arrived, but I love it so much that I don’t even care anymore. It has made such a difference to the texture of my skin, and especially my pigmentation. My fine lines seem diminished, and everything just looks brighter. I was worried that such a high-strength retinol would cause either purging or irritation, but so far I’ve not experienced either of those issues.
It gives resultsSkin type: Oily/combination
I have been using this for about a month now and I can definitely see changes in my skins appearance, expensive but worth it for such a good serum.
Overnight wonder (long term)I have dry sensitive skin and this product was recommended by my aesthetician/facialist. I use it in the night after I wash my face. When my skin is particularly dry, I use the serum and follow up with a moisturiser/mask. The serum has made my skin softer, clearer and reduced breakouts. I did not see results overnight, but definitely began seeing results in after 4-7 days of using it.
Good results, non irritatingI have sensitive skin and have tried several different retinol products before my racialist recommended this one to Me. My skin texture and evenness has improved a lot after using this for around 6 months (saw the smoothing benefits quite quickly). For reference I’m mid 20s with combo skin.
Long term gains, short term painI have been using this for a year now. I have sensitive, rosacea prone skin and didn't think retinol products were possible for me. This works, but it was a pretty lengthy adaption process - a few months of my skin getting worse rather than better, and building up from every three nights to every night.
Now, no problems, and really makes a difference to skin texture and fine lines, with no sensitivity. I'm glad I stuck with it.
LOVE LOVE LOVEThis is my favourite night serum and has definately improved my skin tone. Also please that my complexion has evened out. I wouldn’t use during the day because of the sun sensitivity it can cause. Also feel like it’s made my skin softer after I use it.
Best product I've usedThis is the most effective product I've used. It took a while for skin to tolerate it daily though but once you do if you back-up with C in the morning and B at night its fantastic. I've just turned 50 and I'm using it vigilantly. I have no reason to stop using this product.
Love it!I have used this serum for years and it remains one of my favourite products. It is great for sensitive users and keeps my skin hydrated in combination with a moisturiser as well. I alternate this every second night and use the Alpha H liquid gold on the other. My skin is clear and radiant. Very happy with the results.
The perfect retinol serum for sensitised or reactive skinI love this product and have used several bottles of it, but I have also recommended it to plenty of people as well. It is a mild retinol which allows the user to enjoy the benefits of Vitamin A derivatives (eg rebuilding, strengthening, anti-ageing, antioxidant, repairing sun damage) without risking the inflammation of a full-on retinol serum or prescribed retinoid.
Serum 16 is perfect for the following types of skin:
- Sensitive rosacea-type skins
- Thin, fragile, aged skin
- Anyone who needs a retinoid more for rebuilding rather than retexturising.
My only problem with this is it does have a lavender/herbal type scent which I guess could be irritating in some skins, but in my experience most people with even really reactive/sensitised skin can use this! Just start every second or third night and work up to nightly use after a few weeks. Follow with moisturiser and wear sunscreen during the day.
Love this serum - works on my large pores and blemishesThis was recommend by my facialist instead of the discontinued aspects one I was using.
Works amazing one pump goes a long way.
I was told to wet my fingers and work it onto my skin by patting gently and my skin always looks amazing the next day.
Works on blemishes I put a small amount on them and but morning they are starting to disappear.
