Question

Have they fixed the pump?

I was about to buy this but saw so many poor reviews about the pump, but they were from several months ago. Has anyone noticed a change in the pump?

New bottle design. It's actually a tube now so you get the maximum use out of this product. I love it and definitely highly recommend it!

Hi! I bought a bottle of this product on 04-10-11 at a local spa and the bottle did not work. I was counting the number of times I had to pump the nozzle and it was well over 30 times!! I was tapping the bottle and even tried pulling off the nozzle (I wasn't strong enough). I exchanged it for another bottle yesterday and it still didn't work!! :( so sad!! My boyfriend offered to pull the nozzle off, and I was about to let him, but I was afraid that it might affect the efficacy of the product, since it's purpose of being packaged in a pump is supposed to keep the air out and keep the product as effective as possible. I was hoping to be one of the lucky people who got to experience it...but I have to take it back today :( The girl who sold me the retinol at the spa said that the pump issue has been a recent problem because I asked her if the skinceuticals company was going to fix this issue ASAP!!

Question

What is the best moisturizer to use with this?

My skin is incredibly sensitive and i've had some peeling, so I've cut back to once a week, but I notice that my moisturizers (both day and night) just don't seem to play well with this product. Any suggestions?

You should only use this product at night and wait 15 minutes after applying before you apply your nighttime moisturizer.

Skinceuticals Epidermal Repair. It is made specifically for dry, sensitive or compromised skin. It's heavy so you may prefer to use it at night but it does work well under makeup without "balling up" like some creams do. Also good around the eyes. :o)

With retinols I've had luck with Cetaphil Cream, CeraVe PM, and Avene Hydrance Optimale as night creams. I've had problems with day creams as well, because layering sunscreen with any other makeup or moisturizer seemed to make my skin peel and shed twice as much as it did if I left it bare. Recently I started using Colorescience Primer, which has spf but there's no globbing or peeling. That's the only thing that's worked so far though. The Wild to Mild is really nice.

Hi, yes I have had this problem as well, even though my skin isn't sensitive. Make sure that the moisturizers you use do not contain AHA'a (ex. Glycolic Acid). I also can't use Clinique moisturizers bc it seems to burn my skin even during the day when i'm not using the retinol.

I have been using this stuff called "Emu" oil. Don't be scared bc of the oil. I normally would break out even mentioning oil, but for some reason this stuff is great! It also, doesn't burn and really adds moisture.

If you don't want to use that stuff, get something for sensitive skin with very few ingredients. Good luck!

This comes waaaaay too late to help the writer, but for anyone else curious...you'll be ok, but I'd recommend NOT waiting the suggested 30 minutes before applying your moisturizer. Wait about 5 instead and it should dilute the effects of the product. And don't use more than 2-3 times per week. The worst that is likely to happen are some redness and peeling. Make sure you lather on the SPF anytime you are outside.

I started with the 1.0 and had no skin issues. Try using it every other night or every third night and gradually work to using it every night.

I would definitely start with .5 because your skin may peel. I only use .5 because it makes my skin peel so I use a scrub and then I have radiant, beautiful skin! Reintol 1 is pretty strong and I think .5 works just great.

I would start with 2 or 2x per week and gradually work your way up to 6-7 days per week. This is what worked for me.

Start using it maybe twice or three times a week for your skin to adjust and then start adding another day and so on until you have built it up for every night or every other night.

Question

Is the desired results peeling or am I using too much too fast?

Started Retinol 1.0 2 weeks ago. using it 4 nights a week. Having a lot of peeling but after a shower, skin looks great. Is this what I want to happen or is it a undesirable side effect?

Yes, it is normal for your skin to peel and that's what you want to happen. That's the top layer of your skin coming off to reveal younger looking skin.

This is normal. If you prefer less peeling and still good results, just slower. Use it 2-3 times a week. Just don't be too hard on your skin and try to scrub it off. The peeling is a natural process of exfoliating the dead skin cells. Let them go at their own pace.

I'm not a doctor, just a consumer who also uses Retinol 1.0. For the first two months of use, I had a lot of peeling...I mean a LOT. I started out using Retinol every night, which wasn't wise, but I didn't let the massive flaking stop my usage. I kept thinking, "It will be gone tomorrow," while brushing off my clothing and anything within 5 feet of me. I continued to turn myself into a human lizard for almost two months. After 2 months, my skin started to HURT...like it had sunburn, and it was uncomfortable to wash it even with Cetaphil. I'm used to using 20% aha cleansers, but Cetaphil was stinging my skin! I had read about all the side effects with retinol, so I figured all the peeling I had experienced was normal. However, when I didn't even want to touch my face because it was stinging so badly, and I looked like an iguana at shedding time, I finally "got" that I was hurting, not helping my skin. I stopped the retinol competely until my skin healed (about a week), and when I restarted, I cut down my application to every 4 nights, every 3 nights, then every other night, until it stopped causing peeling. Only then did I start using retinol every night. If I started to peel, I used a facial scrub and skipped the retinol till the peeling went away. (Alternating Retinol with Nia 24 really helped my skin look better in no time). A year later, I've been using Retinol 1.0 regularly without any trouble at all. I used it every night, all summer long, and now I can soak my skin with it and it's like putting nothing on my face. I definitely see the difference in the appearance and feel of my skin, for the better. Jjust start slow, and in a few months, your skin will be better than ever. :-)

NO. Never use any sort of Retinol or Salicylic Acid if you are pregnant, nursing, or trying to become pregnant. Lactic Acid, however, is safe. This site carries the Belli brand, which is safe for pregnant and nursing women. Many Peptide and Vitamin C serums or creams are also safe.
