How To Use
Apply a single pump to face in the evening. If you have never used a retinol product before, begin by limiting use to twice a week, gradually increasing frequency to every other night, and then advancing to each evening or as tolerated. Mild redness, peeling and irritation is expected when using this product. Use daily sun protection with SPF 20 or higher during use of this product. Avoid getting in eyes. If contact occurs, rinse eyes thoroughly with water.
I am eight months into the bottle and am very pleased. I have dry sensitive skin and this is my first attempt at a retinol product after the recommendation from my dermatologist. There was slight tingling and redness at first, but I always layered a moisturizer on top. Now, after slowly ramping my way up, I’m using it up to four times per week at night with no irritation. The pump provides the perfect amount and the design ensures the sensitive ingredients are protected from the elements. It will last me another couple of months at least. I will continue to purchase other products in this retinal line as my skin adapts to the higher strength formulations.
