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.

As a precaution, retinol cream products should not be used by pregnant women or women who intend to become pregnant in the near future. Though there are no reports of topical retinol having any negative effect on fetal development, always consult a physician.

  • 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 0.5 employs an optimized delivery system and protective packaging to ensure stability and efficacy of pure retinol. This retinol night cream works with skin’s natural lipid structure to promote optimal absorption.

Key Ingredients

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! This is my favorite part of skin care. New(ish) to retinol, I was really nervous about using this. Its not irritating at all! You will peel a little at first though! Its the best retinol Ive tried so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin is more youthful I bought this product about a month ago and the first week I really experienced the "retinol uglies" with incredibly flaky red dry skin and read a bunch online to persevere through it and i am so glad I did! at the peak of the red, dryness I switched to every other night and once it cleared up I worked back to using it every night and had zero issues from there. Still some dryness but nothing a good exfoliator and lotion can't fix. Now my skin is tighter and more youthful. My pores look smaller and I can't believe the results in just a month. Apparently this grade of retinol takes about 3 months to see the full benefits and I can't wait to see where my skin will be at then. I can't believe I waited so long to try this stuff out! Once this is out, I'll graduate to the higher retinol grade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok- I’m starting to see why this gets so many good reviews. I’ve had it in my medicine cabinet for TWO YEARS & I never stuck with it long enough to see results. As a product junkie I should be addicted to retinol, but I never got the immediate gratification of waking up with gorgeous, dewy, sloughed off skin like I did with glycolics and alpha-hydroxy’s. I’d use this every now and again and be sooooooo disappointed at waking up to ‘nothing’ skin. Well with this lockdown I figured, ‘What do I have to lose? No one sees my face anyways.’ So I went at it, using up the remnants of my tube. It’s been about 3 weeks now. I had ugly skin for a bit, little bumps all over. I suppose that’s the “purging” and I knew to expect it & thankfully I didn’t really care. And now - I’m seeing it. I almost have this smooth, translucent skin. It’s not perfect, but it’s so clear that it almost seems ‘see-thru.’ I finally stuck with it long enough to understand why retinol is the holy grail. And I’m not going back. Here are my TIPS: -Use it every night, even if your skin gets ugly. Just ignore it. -Put moisturizer on top. Even if retinol doesn’t dry your skin, a moisturizer makes it nice and dewy in the morning -I put this on DAMP skin b/c I read that it helps products absorb deeper (—> makes them more effective somehow) + helps retain moisture - I then wait 5-10 mins and mist or pat down my face w some more water & add moisturizer (Weleda skin food) -THEN in the a.m. I’ve been using what I used to use at night b/c I can’t bare wasting product: Paula’s Choice 2% BHA -I would honestly think that’s OVERKILL (I don’t have oily skin anymore like I used to) but somehow it is giving me this dewy, beautifully clear skin. Then of course spf on top. I think the retinol and the beta hydroxy acids work in tandem together. Plus I wake up super moisturized with the Weleda, which is some heavy stuff. So wiping it off with a cotton ball and the BHA feels necessary. And I’m noticing the BHA actually is giving me this dewy, tacky, moisturized feel, which is great. I guess my point is - don’t be afraid to play around with unlikely combinations. And don’t be like me - go for it full force, every single night. It will actually start to do its thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent retinol - best one I’ve used. This retinol is encapsulated which is apparently better for your skin (per research). The packaging is also airtight with does not allow the product to oxidize which is ideal for a retinol. I did not have any “peeling” phase while using this. I use this on my forehead where I have minor fine lines as well as on any areas of imperfections. It’s seriously amazing. Skinceuticals is such a fantastic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer Amazing product! This has totally transformed my skin. I just started to incorporate retinol in my skincare and I’m so glad that I did. At first, my skin was dry and a little flaky at first, but as my skin has gotten more accustomed to the ingredients, it has subsided. Nothing that a great moisturizer can’t fix anyway. I suffer from hormonal acne and hyperpigmentation and let me tell you no other product has been as effective against the two. I started to see results within a week and I couldn’t be happier. Nothing has helped me fight my issues with hyperpigmentation better than this product. So glad I stumbled upon this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOTALLY AMAZING I just used this .5 2xs now. Incredible, THIS STUFF WORKS. My skin is super sensitive, I was indeed worried maybe my skin wouldn't handle it. NOPE! NOT AT ALL, ZERO REACTIONS AND SINCE I LOVE PUSHING THE ENVELOPE. DID IT A SECOND NIGHT. MY SKIN COULDN'T BE MORE HAPPY! NOW SO AM I, FINALLY! NOW I READ, PEOPLE UPSET REGARDING THE PACKAGING, INSTEAD OF WASTING THE PART THAT STAYS AT THE END, CUT THAT TUBE OPEN AND DON'T WASTE IT. WERE THERE'S A WILL THERE'S A WAY. LADIES, WHEN IT COMES TO SKIN CARE WE TURN INTO ENGINEERS, WE ARE DETERMINED AND CAN DO ANYTHING. I'VE USED HAMMERS AND ALL SORTS OF TOOLS TO GET OUT THAT LAST LITTLE BIT OF ANYTHING. AKA#ALWAYSKEEPFIGHTING # NEVERGIVEUP OVERALL, THANKYOU, SKINCEUTICALS, I'M EXCITED TO CONTINUE TO TRY MORE PRODUCTS FROM YOU. LOVE THE THINGS I'VE GOTTEN SO FAR.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tube malfunction I had been using this product for a few months and loved the changes I saw in my skin tone and fine lines. I really wanted to give this product a five star review, however, today I noticed that the tube had worn down enough that product started coming out the side. I am aware that when retinol oxidizes, it becomes inactive. Sad because there is still a considerable amount of product left and it is not cheap!
