Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment

When it comes to anti-aging, nothing can rival the track record of good 'ol retinol. As this potent treatment's main event, the tried-and-true ingredient minimizes the look of pores and fine lines while brightening and improving skin tone overall. And to minimize the irritation and redness typically associated with retinoids, the controlled-released delivery system allows even, consistent absorption as hydrating plant, licorice, and oat extracts soothe. This way you experience less dryness and more radiance.

Strong but good
Purchased

Been using this product for two weeks now. Much too early to see results but the product does seem to tighten my skin a bit. Would definitely recommend moisturizing heavily and follow directions for use with this product. Size is a good amount. Smell is meh.

Didn't impress me much
Sampled

I was really hoping to get the same results I had seen on the good reviews but it didn't happen for me. I used all of it and didn't notice a difference. It did make my face feel good and soft but a moisturizer does that.

Truly Impressed
Sampled

I had tried this product when I first got it, but I should have given it a chance before I wrote a review. I love the way it feels on my skin, and it has taken away a lot of my redness, especially during the winter weather. I will truly buy this now.

Still slightly confused what retinol is...
Purchased

I purchased this at the behest of a coworker who was teaching me all about retinol. After a bad experience of overusing it (my skin does better with it 2 week not 3 times) and accidentally rubbing it too close to my eyes I think I have the hang of it. My skin looks smoother and feels softer, but I have no idea how it is occurring. I use it before going to bed after I exfoliate since I read that exfoliation afterwards can lead to oily skin. Then the next morning and night I use an oil based cleanser just to play it safe.

Great for chicken neck
Sampled

I am nearing 50 and my neck is starting to resemble that of a chicken. This stuff worked really well on my neck. Might be more than I can afford though.
