How To Use

In the evening, apply a pea size amount to clean dry skin, avoiding the eye area. Allow product to absorb before applying other skincare products. Limit initial use to once or twice a week, gradually increasing frequency to every other night, then every night as tolerated. It is important to establish consistent skin tolerance before advancing to a higher concentration.

Retinol may increase photosensitivity. Always use a high-protection, broad spectrum sunscreen when using this product.

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    Topical retinols have extensively been used by dermatologists to help combat and reverse the visual effects of aging, such as wrinkles, laxity, and discoloration. Retinols because they accelerate cell turnover, can also improve blemishes and the appearance of pores. The retinol molecule is highly-sensitive and vulnerable to breakdown if not properly protected.

    Retinol 0.3 employs an optimized delivery system and protective packaging to ensure stability and efficacy of pure retinol.

Physician Insight

Physician image

SkinCeuticals is a gold standard in Retinol, which is why I am thrilled about the addition of a lower percentage of the ingredient, so that the benefits can be reaped by even more of my patients. 0.3% ensures maximum efficacy we have all come to know and expect, while keeping irritation to a minimum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Acne I've suffered with acne for like forever and this has done wonders. Be careful not to put on too often or you'll dry out your skin. However it does it's job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin is more clear than it has been in years. I’m 38, and have battled with hormonal/cystic acne since having kids. I decided to give this a try after reading that it can both help improve fine lines and wrinkles and cut down on breakouts. I have been using this along with the triple lipid restore for about 6 weeks now and my skin is looking better than it has in years. I started off using it just 2 times the first week and have added a day each week since, to give my skin time to adjust to the retinol. My fine lines already look less deep and my break outs have become almost nonexistent. In fact, I haven’t had any “cystic” type acne since using this product. I’m so thankful I decided to give this a try. I’m excited to see the continued results for my fine lines and wrinkles in the weeks to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! This product has changed the appearance of my skin! I experience a lot of hormonal breakouts and have hardly had any since using this product. My complexion is brighter and looks healthier. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish I knew about this sooner! Like the title states - I wish I knew about this type of Retinol cream sooner. I have super sensitive skin, and no reactions at all to this cream. I've read that when you first use retinol, your skin will purge. This didn't happen to me at all! I used to have cystic/hormonal acne and the scarring is really apparent. After using this cream for a month, my skin looks SO MUCH BETTER. It's honestly unbelivable. Daily use (before bed) is really keeping my breakouts down, and it's aiding in my skin's recovery. Using this retinol (5-6 days/week) , alterating with the Blemish + Age Defense (1-2 days/week), is a great combo if you have sensitive skin or scarring. Would highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's Okay, would recommend I have only been using for about 8 weeks. At first, I was using just twice a week and I would apply a moisturizer first. I am now starting to use every other night, but I still need to apply a moisturizer first. Most likely I will continue to apply a moisturizer, since this seems a little too strong for my sensitive skin. My skin is not acne prone, but I did breakout (1 or 2 pimples) every so often for the first 5 weeks. I think my skin has adjusted now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I have extremely sensitive skin. I was looking at retinol online but had trouble finding a very low dose...until I found this product! The 0.03 percent is just right for my skin! I love it! There’s no redness or burning whatsoever. I highly recommend this retinol, especially if you are looking for an anti-aging cream for very, very sensitive skin.
