description for SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5

Retinol 0.5 contains .5% pure retinol and is enhanced with the latest stabilization and delivery technologies to provide maximum efficacy. Recommended for more sensitive skin or to help condition skin not acclimated to retinoids as a prerequisite to SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0. Our retinol products help stimulate cell regeneration and build collagen to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots from both photo- and intrinsic- aging. Additionally, they help minimize the appearance of pore size, while correcting blemishes and blotchiness often associated with problematic skin.


  • Helps reduce appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, blemishes, and blotchiness
  • Preserves optimal retinol stability and minimizes erythema commonly associated with the use of retinol
  • Ensures maximum amount of retinol reaches the target site
  • Will not clog pores and eliminates the need of additional moisturizer

Perfect for my sensitive skin. - 5/2/2014 8:14:52 AM I have used the RX Ziana (.25 %) for years. Wanted to try to bump up the Retinol to see if that would improve the texture of my aging skin but did not want peeling or redness. I tried this product for the first time, using it every other day with Ziana still using on the off day and it is working great. Could immediately tell a difference in the texture and softness of my face. Love it and will continue to use it. No peeling, no fragrance in the formula. Tube is kinda small though and hard to figure out how it is supposed to open.,

Not for sensitive skin - 10/2/2013 5:53:54 AM I used this product for 2 months hoping that my skin would adjust. After getting fed up with my constant burning red lizard skin I gave up. It's not for everyone!

not as harsh as the 1.0 - 2/26/2012 7:09:38 AM I had been using the Skinceuticals 1.0 retinol but found my skin was too sensitive. I 'backed' it down a notch and tried the .5 and so far I haven't experienced any redness or irritation.
