I have used many different retinoids (from prescription strength RetinA to basic retinols) and this product was the best I have come across in a long time. It is very powerful and will make you peel if you use too much or too often. A little goes a long way and the results are terrific. Just be warned, it is strong and you will likely peel for a few days if you over use it like I did. It is very effective. I will always have this product in my armamentarium of anti-aging products!

I stopped using this product for a few years and BOY did I notice a difference in my skin. I suffered from more breakouts (despite skin on the dryer side) and my skin lacked the glow that it used to have. And now that it doesn't come in that annoying pump that pumped out tiny amounts and didn't work half the time...it's perfect! I LOVE the new packaging even though I probably use more than I need to since it's so easy to dispense. The only con for this product is that it works best if you let it sink in for 30 minutes before applying moisturizer. I tend to wash my face rightbefore bed, so that's kind of annoying. If you've never used retinol before, start with the .5 forumula and work up to the 1.0. Trust me!

I've tried many retinol products, and this is the only one that works for me. I have extremely oily acne prone skin, but had almost immediate results with this product. Don't forget to use a good sunscreen during the day. This product is will worth the price.

I tried using this 2x a week and had such peeling and redness that I cut it back to one time a week on Saturday nights. By Tuesdays I have peeling and redness. The good news to take away is that this is a "real" retin A as this is the same reaction I had to prescription meds. I am hoping to build up tolerance eventually. But for those who can tolerate the cream, it is a good value and legitimate. Just make sure to wait 20 minutes after application before you use a moisturizer.

This product is amazing. I use it every night before bed and it has has helped to minimize my pores and soften fine lines. I use to have a deep furrow line between my brows and now it has disappeared. A little goes a long way so it is cost effective as well.

I really love this product line. But user be ware if you have sensitive skin test it first for several uses in a very small area. I used as directed and looked like I had a peel for days.

I have been using SkinCeuticals Retinol for years and I really believe in this product. It makes my skin smooth and glowing. I use it nightly, let it soak in for half an hour and then apply moisturizer. You will wake up to beautiful, glowing skin in the morning! I swear it helps keep the wrinkles away! New bottle design is the best!

I bought this instead of my usual Green Cream for an over the counter retinol choice thinking this would provide the same results, but this is not near as powerful as Green Cream, I think it's a bit stronger then Roc Retinol but that isn't saying much.

This is the retinol product I come back to time and time again. It doesn't make my skin too oily like many other retinols do, and while it is strong, it doesn't irritate my skin or dry it out. And the new packaging makes it seem like you are getting twice as much product for the same price. Love, love, love.

I have sensitive skin, but need a good anti-ager and have tried lots of retinol products. Most are either effective but irritating or gentle but not effective. This product is first rate. I highly recommend it as part of a skin treatment program to fight the signs of aging.

I ordered a total of 4 bottles of this product and none of the pumps work. So unfortuate because the product is wonderful. Very disappointed and frustrating.

When I first started using Skinceuticals retinol 1.0 my skin got real red and peeled. It peeled for days. I almost gave up. I stuck in there and now I get so so many complements! It has done wonders for my skin! The only bad thing is that the bottle is a poor design. The last bottle I received I had to send back because the product would not even come out. I would say about 75% of the time the product comes out when I first order it. I will say I will continue to use this cream! If it doesn't come out I will send it back and get a new one. I am a 35 year old woman that freckles easily and worshiped the sun and since I have been using it I get carded all the time when I order a drink at the restaurant. I feel awesome!

Very effective product .

I have used this product for years. It really helps with wrinkles and making my pores look smaller. I will continue using this until they stop making it, which hopefully they won't!!!!!!!

How does one begin to review a product that won't come out of the bottle? I have always been very pleased with all of my skinceuticals purchases--but this one ....It wasn't possible for me to return because I live in Europe and have products sent to my mother and pick them up when I visit--I tried for 3 days and it never came out--I turned it upside down and pumped and pumped--and beat it--finally it came out--but not reliably--now I am a cosmetic bottle mechanic--it works--I like the product so far--but wait until they package it in a new bottle before buying!

I've tried a few high-level retinol creams, and I'm a huge fan of this one. It's hard to beat this price when other 1% retinol creams tend to be at least $75. This little guy has worked wonders in terms of brightening, smoothing, and evening skin tone. The pump is a little weird; all four bottles I've gone through have had this issue, allowing for just a tiny amount per pump. But hey, it comes out, and I suppose that's all that matters. I use a pea-sized amount every evening (sunlight renders retinol inactive) just before bed, and voila, a fresh face ensues. This has a lovely texture as well and smoothes easily over my skin. My skin is pretty hearty, but if yours is more sensitive, starting with a lower-level retinol product would be probably be a good idea. This does what it says it will do--not overnight, but with continued use, the results are obvious and worth the wait!

I bought this product two days ago. The pump on the first bottle did not work, so I exchanged it for another...and that one didn't work either!!! I've got bad luck!! However, looking at the reviews here, it looks like this is a common packaging problem for this product. I hope they fix it soon, but for now I'll have to find a different retinol. :(

You will see results, but just be careful in the beginning; let your skin get used to it.

Over the last few years I've been using numerous retinoids, including Philosophy, Skinmedica and Revision, but until I started using this stuff, I didn't realise how ineffective they were.I've been using this for a couple of months now and my skin has never looked better. I use it every second night as it is quite strong. I had a bit of flaking for the first 6 weeks or so - I never got the flakies with other retinoids - but it's been worth it, as my skin is glowing and people are commenting on how young my skin is looking.If your skin is sensitive, this will probably be too strong for you.
