Get off the fence and jump to your computer to purchase it. If you are nervous about the
irritation you feel you may incur-start with using it every third night for a while and then slowly
bring yourself to every night-if you find every night is too much you will eventually know what
schedule is best for your skin type.

I have very fair skin, as well. But I haven't had any problems with this retinol complex. Just put it on your face at night and top it with a moisturizer. You should be OK. It's a wonderful product.

I noticed your post was almost 2 months ago, but if you're still on the fence... TRY IT! My skin is sensitive. I can't use anything with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide and I even have to use specific body lotions. I did a lot of research on retinols because I wanted to use one for prevention. The way this product is blended (with the tree different types) must be the reason it works well for my sensitive skin.

The regimen I used is as follows: I wash my face and use a toner. I make sure the toner is completely dry, usually less than 5 mins (applying before it dries increases sensitivity with any product). Then I started using it every other day to see how dry my skin would be (all retinols, retinoids, etc. are prone to dryness until your skin adjusts). I was prepared to use it every three days, just in case, but after one week with no dryness I began using it every night. The only dryness I have experienced is around the blemishes it has brought out (which it is supposed to do). And, I was careless and got some around my lips which caused some irritation for a few days. Then I wait about 20 mins and apply moisturizer (I keep it next to my bed).

I hope this helps! I've been using it 3 weeks now and have already had people ask me what I've been doing differently (even while the blemishes are coming up) and I didn't have bad skin to begin with. I just wanted to use this as a preventive measure so I know that I'm not the only one noticing. Good Luck. I hope you find a product that helps if you haven't tried this one!

I think you should give it a shot. I am of Nordic descent, have extremely fair, sensitive skin, and mild rosacea. I find this product not only tolerable, but even soothing. I cannot tolerate most other retinols either. Skinmedica Retinol helps my crummy skin look nicer. Try starting every third day, then every other, and work up to every night if you can.

Hope this helps!

I have not found this to be a heavy cream. You only need a pea size amount for your whole face. It is not as drying as other retinols, reitnoids, etc. and has been great for me.

Not at all, in fact you should start very slow with this product so your skin can adjust to retinol. One pump is the max!

You might try 3 times a week at night time to start. You should definitely use a moisturizer after product absorbs. Retinol can be drying, but you will notice clearer skin, refined pore size, reduction in wrinkles, and better elasticity.

I say when in doubt, reduce the frequency of usage and observe what happens. If you see no improvements, then you may be reacting to something else. Hold off for a couple days and then you can make your decision then. Good luck !

At first consider applying every other night-if the irritation persists-then make it every second night and so on-I have heard of irritations from retinol products and have experienced it myself but not with this one. I would expect an irritation not a break-out from retinol usage.

I love this product also. One thing to consider is your pillow case. I use to break out on one side of my face and was told to keep my pillow case clean. So now I change it often and it stopped breaking out. You may be layering too much on your skin at night

Question

We know it's gentle. But is it powerful? (where else to look for more potency if this isn't enough? I'm used to Renova, but I can't afford.

We know it's gentle. But is it powerful? (where else to look for more potency if this isn't enough? I'm used to Renova, but I can't afford it. I'm glad that my fave brand is there for you with sensetive skin/but will I be dissapointed that it's weak? Does it flip cells relatively quick?
I KNOW there's only 1 Renova; but maybe I can BENEFIT from use of this too!?? :)

thank you and GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS!!!

It's a wonderful product-the entire line delivers what it promises.
My dermatologist recommended this line and I have seen the difference.
I have used Renova in the past and the truth is it is very difficult to use it
forever because you will be experience irritations.

This is a good retinol product, it contains a .5% of retinol. The highest strength available is a 1% over the counter. Take a look at the SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0.

Question

Use with skin polisher?

My dermatologist gave me this product today (but the ES version) as well as the skin polisher by Skinmedica. Advised that I should use both 2-3 times a week. Has anyone else used this with the skin polisher? Can you use both on the same day or give it time in between? Thanks in advance

I have never used the skin polisher but I use the Tri-Retinol Complex every night. I have oily skin and fine lines. This product has helped my skin a lot. My skin texture, moisture and overall appearance has greatly improved.

Question

I have been using this product for about a month. For the last day or so, my face has been getting red and puffy. I am often in the sun.

Is there anything that I can do and what should I do? I use a spf 30 hydrating sunscreen.

I don't know where you live but if it's a sunny climate or a brisk weather state you skin may becoming irritated from the product. Try using it every other night instead of every night if that is what you do-and obviously use sunscreen in the day. All you can is try if it doesn't work then stop for a while and then go back using less.

Retinols increase your sensitivity to the sun, so switch to nighttime application only and definitely keep up the SPF and add hat. If you're still in the sun and getting irritation, use every other night or less until you're out of that strong sun. Make sure your sunscreen doesn't have any wrinkle reducing or "sloughing" agents, acids, etc.I had a random period of irritation with my retinol, which I had also been using for some time, and I just gave it a break. Skin cleared up right away and I reintroduced it slowly without any problems.
