strong but effective

MS

Definitely one to build up to, i went too hard when i received it resulting in my skin peeling the first couple of times, but once accustomed to it, it's a lovely and effective retinol with noticeable improvements in skin tone and texture upon regular use!

Most Helpful Criticism

Use with Caution!

Bella

This was an impulse purchase as my trusty Medik8 Crystal Retinal ran out of stock. I have to agree with some of the reviewers that this product does make my acne worse. Acne started to pop out around my cheeks and forehead (I usually only have to deal acne around my chin area) and I started to panic. However, I was told that this was supposedly to be a 'purging' process. Therefore, I tried to continue using it. After a few usage, I started to feel a burning sensation. It was very painful and all of the usual products that I used to put on my face made it even more painful (I did not experience this with Medik8!). I stopped for a little while then started to use it again as I do not want to waste the product. I now use it very sparingly and I can see that my skin looks a little better. My pores looks smaller and my acne scars seems to fade a little, but it still hasn't clear my acne. I will continue using it but will probably not repurchase.

  3. Good so far

    Gi

    I’ve been using this product a few times a week and noticing small improvements as far as reduction in some fine lines and a generally smoother complexion. I have consistently used the ordinary retinol 2% for a few years and haven’t noticed any negative side effects such as flaking skin as mentioned in other reviews, but have been using sparingly. Overall, a good quality and strong retinol. Probab...

  4. Not for everyone...and be careful if you have acne prone skin

    Charlotte

    I was so excited to use this product, so I'm sad it didn't work out. I've used retinol for about a year and even used adapalene in high school for acne, so I thought my skin could handle this. BIG nope. I did everything right — used moisturizer to buffer, started off slow, simplified my routine — and it's the worst product I've ever put on my skin (for me, I can see for others it's grand).

  5. Backed by Science!!!

    Dee

    The only OTC Retinol that actually works! I have tried TO retinol for yonks and although they are nice to the skin, it did not do much for me. No noticeable difference whatsoever. Until I discovered this retinol.. your skin will peel if you don't slowly introduce it.. but once your skin gets used to it, then it's heaven. THIS IS A WEAPON!
  6. This is as strong as it says it is!

    Monika

    Whilst I had been using retinol products prior to this one, they were clearly not very strong. When I used this for the first time, whole face started peeling on Day 3. I've had it for about a month now but as I haven't been using it regularly (i.e. once a week to start with) due to various other things going on, my skin still starts to peel without fail on Day 3. So if you want an active product,...

    Firstly this is my first time using retinol on my face so I do not have anything to compare it to however I do have hyperpigmentation and can honestly say I do see a difference after a few weeks of using the retinol. At first I didn't think it had much of an effect since multiple reviews claim that the product causes a slight tingling/burning sensation and peeling and I can say that during the fir...

  9. Works but be careful

    Eve

    Wow. This is strong. On the third day of using this my skin became VERY sensitive, red and flakey. You will need to be careful with what you apply on your skin while it's in this state. But after a couple days (+ intense moisturising of course) my skin is back to normal and I have noticed that two of my acne scars (which were causing me the most grief) have faded a lot! From now I will be using it...

  10. Hard to spread out

    Jamie B

    verified purchaser
    I love this product, BUT, I am having so much trouble spreading it out over my skin.
    It drys up right away and therefor I can’t move it around much and I have to use more and more.
  11. Very strong

    NN

    Proceed with caution! After months, my skin finally tolerates it. The pain is well worth it!
  12. Worth the money!!

    Jamie B

    I love this retinol, it feels so nice on the skin, I’ve had zero irritation and it is helping my acne and uneven skin tone.
    It is on the stronger side, so maybe try the lower strength first.
    The only issue I have is the packaging, when you open it the cream comes out without you squeezing the tube.
  13. Real Results

    Tarsha

    Upgraded to the 1% after using and .2% product for many months. Was worried about irritation as my skin is sensitive and dry however after surviving the first few weeks of peeling my skin looks amazing! So clear, smooth, tight and soft, I have received two compliments this week about my skin. Highly recommend, worth the price tag,
  14. WOW

    Emma

    I ignored the advise to build up to 1.0, thinking it will just be stronger and work quicker. I used it the first 2 nights after another serum and gel, there was no extreme reaction but thought it would be too early to judge anyway. The third night I used after cleanser and toner, then let it sink in for an hour before applying any other product. The next day I woke up and my face had started peeli...

  15. Strong!

    Gi

    I thought I had a tolerance to retinol- this product proved me wrong. This is the strongest retinol I have ever used and the results are showing. It has taken me a while to build up a tolerance and I can currently use it twice a week.
  16. Hard core

    GB

    Definitely feel this working as I have light peeling a couple of days after using. My skin looks a lot more glowy, however I've also noticed I'm a bit drier. Product can be a bit hard to use sparingly because it does't spread well. Will definitely keep using, but 1-2 times a week seems like the best amount.
  17. Love it!

    Carmen H

    I have been using this retinol now for a week and am amazed at how smooth and clear my face looks. I haven’t had any reaction at all as have been using retinol products for quite some time, but nowhere this strength. I’m in my 40s and I suffer from extremely uneven, quite severe acne scarred skin. Using this product has not only softened my scarring and changed the overall look of my skin but has ...

    Mel

    I have started using this recently and agree it IS really strong - you need to be very careful! When I first used it my skim freaked out a bit and got very dry, but i wanted to stick with it and I think I am becoming less sensitive (I’ve been applying a small amount once a week). The instructions on the packaging say to use a few drops, but it’s a little hard to use sparingly because its consisten...

    I decided I needed to keep ramping up my retinol concentration, after using TO retinoid for ages (which I still love for AM or PM because it's so gentle, and has great oily texture) and Skinstitute retinol (also lovely, gentle and amazing price point) so I splurged on this one, and I found after using it a few nights in a row I did not have any irritation...except for around my eyes! I didn't real...

    The product is easy to apply and feels nice on the skin, however this is far to strong for me. I have been using this once a week for almost two months and I still peel like crazy about two days afterwards. This is a strong formula
  24. The BEST of the BEST

    Sarah

    Okay I've tried Medik8 Retinol 10 and 6. They are NOTHING compared to this. After 100's of dollars spent on Medik8 and only slight changes to my skin, I decided I needed the most powerful I could get. (Please make sure your skin can handle this, cause it's STRONG)

    kittykatkel

    I really like this retinol. I've used about 4-5 different brands over the years, and this is my favourite. My skin is not sensitive to retinols so this does not tingle, but it may if you have sensitive skin. In this case, you may need to build up to this strength. I like the creamy, but not overly rich, consistency of his cream. It does lighten pigmentation, but I've yet to find a miracle worker r...

    I have sensitive skin and was hesitate to try retinol product at high concentration knowing it could irritate my skin more. I have been using this product for a over month now and it worked on my skin perfectly!

I’m currently using it every second night and trying to work up to every night. I had some minor peeling but no painful irritation, but have found it fine for every second night. It’s pleasant to put on, has no odor, and I’ve barely made a dent in the tube afte...

  30. Packs a punch

    Tahnia

    Agree with other users this stuff is strong! Even for a seasoned vitamin A user. So I had to take a step back and use only once a week. I either mix with a moisturiser or layer on top and a barrier cream after.
    Redness is minimal but the skin sloughing and heat sensitivity is quite significant. It’s a very good product but I personally prefer the medik8 crystal 10
  31. I've tried other retinols - this is the best.

    Anne

    Easily the best retinol I have used. Go easy when first using using to ensure you don't get an adverse reaction. But it has really helped with dulling out acne marks..
  32. Best over the counter retinol

    Jessica

    This is so highly recommended by skincare experts.
    I had already used lower strength retinols so I thought my skin was ready for this.
    Boy was I wrong. This is strong!
    I only use a tiny drop, all over the perimeter of my face, never in the centre of my face, except a tiny bit on my nose.
    Always four days later my skin peels, pretty noteiceably.

    Jean

    I am turning into my 30s this year. Retinol A is my anti aging secret.

    I use Vitamin C in the morning and Retinol A at night. Good results so far. If you have a sensitive skin, better start using Retinol A with a low concentration
  36. Strong!!

    Maggie

    Oooft, this stuff is very strong! I've used other brands' "1% retinol" and had no more skin peeling at all despite frequent use. I therefore decided to upgrade to this product and after ONE use, I had skin peeling (no irritation, just superficial exfoliation). So start slow with this even if you've used other retinols. Excited to see the long-term effects. I'm very impressed with Skinceuticals.

After a year or so of nightly use, my skin looks and feels amazing. It al...

  45. The bee’s knees of retinol’s

    NatashaGorg

    When buying a retinol, you can’t overlook this product. It is strong(potency) for people new to retinol’s and it can peel your face off if you use too much. Definitely recommend easing in to this potency, mixing with a moisturiser or oil every 3rd night. Works brilliantly on those new fine lines, and the deeper fine lines improve to softer lines. Me likely!

  54. Highly recommend

    Robyn

    Prior to using this product I used the 0.5 retinol to prime my skin for the 1.0. In the first week or two, my skin peeled a little bit and was slightly red after applying it. But after a few weeks my skin felt so smooth and soft. I've never used a product that has left my skin so soft and clear. I would definitely recommend using the 0.5 product first, as the 1.0 version is much stronger.

    I have had this for months and it is still maybe half way through. But even with using such small amounts, I still notice quite an improvement in texture and brightness of my skin.

    Ramona

    Despite preparing my skin for the strength of this retinol (e.g. using lower strength for a while beforehand), I still found this too full on for my skin. I have to use moisturiser after application otherwise it stings my skin and leaves it red for the following few days. I haven't noticed any difference to my skin but that's because I cannot tolerate any prolonged use.

    I really wanted to love this retinol but no matter what way I used it it burned the hell out of my skin. I ended up with a burned looking red face.
    I tried using it only twice a week and over moisturizer and still killed my skin.

    Not for the faint hearted

    Julie

    I really enjoyed this retinol. It was very effective but not as harsh as others I’ve used in the past

    Emma

    This gives great results but it is very strong. You will need to start gradually. Peeling will also most likely occurs.
  63. It works but you need to go gradually

    Van

    I used The Ordinary first but didn't see any difference and decided to give this a try. My skin peeled lot (burned a bit as well) after the first couple of times but gets better gradually.

    Make sure you hydrate after use as well as it can dry out the skin.

    The stronger the better I say! This is amazing but be careful... depending on your skin don’t use this too often as you skin can flake! I love this and it makes my skin look so radiant and smooth!
  65. Best Retinol Ever!!!

    Eleni

    This is the only retinol I’ve used that has made a big difference to my skin. Did make my skin peel initially. I would recommend starting off with 0.5 if you haven’t used retinol before as this one is stroooong!! Worth the price!

    Angela

    My skin is so soft and smooth!
    All the crud in my skin has come to the surface and super easy to remove with safe extraction.
    First time I also peeled like other users, but I did use a lot of it without other skin products. Haven't peeled since.
    Results were the best I've experienced over any other retanoid/retanol product, including prescription types!

    I was using the ordinary retinoids and didn’t notice anything so I jumped to this. I peeled ever so slightly after the first use but nothing since. I use twice a week after using the aspect fruit enzyme mask and have a nice glow and reduced lines after 2 months of use. Make sure to hydrate +++ after use
  68. Best retinol product on the market

    Samantha

    This is by far the most effective retinol product you can buy over the market. I’ve done a lot of research to find the strongest store bought retinol and this is the one. I’ve recommended it to many friends and they can’t get over how strong it is. Definitely worth the $$
  69. Really works!

    Michelle

    I have been using this product for a year now and I have to say it really does what it says. My acne scarring has softened and pigmentation also faded. It also tightened skin and I have also noticed skin texture a lot smoother. Highly recommended!
  70. Too intense for me

    Lara

    I tried this the other day and it was a bit too harsh for my sensitive skin. I am sure it would be great for those who are less sensitive though, but is a risk for the price!
  71. Hardcore but effective

    Hannah_N

    Don't use this if you've never used retinol before, as it is rather strong. But if your skin is used to it, this has got to be the best retinol out there. Leaves skin so polished and youthful. I couldn't live without it!

    JAnine

    My skin is resistant to treatments and this makes me peel!!! I have used many brands and I always come back to this one! If anyone knows anything stronger, let me know.

    After using this retinol for 2 weeks with the B12 I can say that this is the best retinol cream I have used. Skinceuticals is an expensive brand but if it gives me results then I am a happy customer. My skin is definitely better off so much brighter and pigmentation is almost faded. I definitely recommend trying of course with the 0.5 for first time users.

    As a dermal therapist I am all about results and Skinceuticals is a brand I trust. Retinol is scientifically proven to rejuvenate this skin. It promotes skin renewal and enhances collagen production. It's the no.1 product I recommend to my clients with concerns about skin texture. A++
  78. Favourite Retinol Product

    Beth

    I have tried and tested numerous retinol creams, and this is by far my favourite! It has been combating the scarring left from my normal and cystic acne, without any pain at all! I was spending all my money on "peels" and later treatments, and to be honest I have found this to be just as effective. I use a dermal roller (skin needling) prior to applying my retinol 1.0, and I found it has made it e...

  79. Liquid gold!

    Ellie

    This is my favourite Retinol product!

    My skin (sensitive) feels amazing every single time I use it, feeling smooth, firmer, and with a noticeable reduction of fine lines (especially on the forehead).

    Also worth mentioning is the packaging - The tube is perfect as it protects the active ingredients (very little exposure) and makes it very easy to avoid wastage (you know w...

  80. Very Highly Recommend

    Angela

    I suffered from constant breakouts in my thirties right through to my late forties and tried everything and nothing worked... until this product. My skin is now clear!! No more breakouts, my skin is smoother, the retinol has completely faded all of my red marks from previous breakouts, my complexion brighter it’s an all round skin saver. You do have to ease into it, gradually increasing the numb...

  81. Retinol

    Anna-rita

    This is the best retinol product I have ever used, I tried the 0.5 first and now I'm using the 1.0. Fantastic product I will definitely repurchase.
  82. Fantastic

    Nicola

    This is the best retinol product I have ever used and trust me I have used so many different brands. The quality of the retinol is just another level, other brands may increase skin cell turnover and make my skin look brighter but this is the only brand which I have used where I have seen:

    1. A reduction in the fine lines on my face.
    2. Reduction in pigmentation.
    3. Smal...

  83. Love it

    Galwaygirl

    I bought this after years literally years of humming and hawing about It. Im so sorry I didn't buy it sooner. After one use my skin was clearer. I have used it for a few months now and noticed improvement on my forhead lines, frown lines. I did buy the 1% first would recommend using the lower strenght first. I can only use it twice a week. If I purchased the lower strenght built up as recomm...

  84. Incredible

    annabelle

    I have combination skin with acne scarring and pigmentation from sun damage. I purchased this to try and combat the scars and pigmentation, and so far it has been incredible. I have noticed a huge difference in the overall appearance and texture of my skin. This is a lot better quality than other retinols i have purchased, and you definitely get what you pay for! I cannot recommend this enough, we...

  85. High quality

    Emilly

    This is a really high quality retinol from an amazing skincare brand,
    this has helped so many issues I had with my skin, mostly the texture and blemishes! my skin feels so plump and smooth since using this :)
  86. Best retinol

    Pollen

    I’ve used this for years now as it’s probably the most effective OTC retinol product on the market. I’ve had dramatic results in texture and overall skin tone. I’m not troubled by fine lines, but I’m convinced I’d have more if it weren’t for this. This is quite strong so I’d warn to start with small amounts every 2nd or third day, and use loads of sun protection!
  87. It does refine your skin

    Shelly

    I purchased this product without any advice from the Adore Beauty online chat room, I just did a search and read the information, then I Google searched Reviews. I was wary of purchasing the 1.0, as I typically have sensitive skin & was worried about breakouts. Using it every second day has most definitely refined my skin & I haven't had any breakouts whatsoever!

    I'm almost 47 and ...

  88. It really turns back time!

    Claire

    I am 42 and have been investing in skin care a lot over the past year, including professional peels and found that nothing was giving me lasting results to reduce fine lines, irregular skin tone, scarring, pimples and loss of skin tone.

    I started to research and saw that Wayne Goss had returned to using Retin A. I then watched Mellissa55 on Youtube and was utterly blown away by her i...

  89. Slightly flaky skin but works a treat!

    Laura

    Yes, this like any other retinoid does make your skin a bit flaky, however it also tightens your pores, softens your skins and refines the overall appearance of your skin. I pop it on at night after my shower, a tiny pea sized amount is all you need. In the morning I wake up to slightly shedding skin, however I give my skin a light exfoliation with some gauze soaked in warm water and then layer my...

  90. Best skin product I've ever used

    Naomi

    I have PCOS and really struggle with oily congested skin. Make up never look nice because of the bumps and congestion on my chin and jaw line. I didn't think this product would help because I'd already had professional peels and laser. I was wrong! It worked. After a week I have a small about of peeling and my skin was a little red and itchy but 6 days on the congestions is finding it's way to the...

  91. effective

    Sharon

    I am 52 & have used .5% retinol for a while so decided to try the 1% it is much stronger & actually burned my neck the first time I used it so beware if you haven't used it before use very sparingly & follow directions, but it is a good product. My skin is a lot smoother after only a couple of weeks use.
  92. Amazing. Takes a while and a bit of pain, but totally worth it.

    Daniela

    I'm close to 30 and wanted to start on OTC retinol as I noticed I was looking older than I really am. It's been 6 weeks since I started using this product (every three days) and it's been worth it. First 4 weeks saw lots of peeling and pimples, but it went away and I'm left with skin that not only looks younger, but doesn't require make up. Recommending to all my friends.
  93. The best over the counter skin care product for anti-aging and acne prone skin

    susie

    I am in my mid forties (eek) and have suffered from acne/pimples my whole life. I have tried every over the counter product available including pro active.

    Retin A has mad a HUGE difference to my skin. I will never be with out it! Start with 0.5 percent Retin A, then move up to 1%. My skin, glows looks healthier and im getting complements from friends. I started using once a week ...
