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 0.3 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 It works! I started using this retinol in May. It has been 3 months and I can now see the amazing results. Some people say retinol takes 1-2 months and others say longer. My skin reacted the first 2 months with dryness and purging. My esthetician said this can happen and to stick through it. It was definitely challenging those 2 and half months, I’m so glad I did because my skin has never been smoother! My acne has cleared and I don’t get cystic pimples anymore. I use it about 4 times a week. This stuff really works if you are patient for the adjustment period.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1st Time Retinol User At 45 years old I realized that I should have already started using a retinol product. I decided on this one after hearing good things from my esti and because I tend to have finicky skin started at the lowest %. So far so good, no redness, no peeling, no extra dryness. Obviously, I can't speak to the complete efficacy's too soon for that. However, my plan is to use this tube entirely and then bump up to the 0.5 and so forth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changing Worth it. I finally used up the whole tube after 16 months. Onto my second! I noticed that my breakouts were less angry and healing quicker when I first began using. With patience and gradually using more/ every other night, My acne has gone away. My skin has never been this clear. I have sensitive acne prone skin and was apprehensive, but my face adjusted very quickly. Retinol has changed my skin for good and it is a must in any regimen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I don’t notice a difference I’m 27 years old and have generally unproblematic skin. I’m starting to notice fine lines/wrinkles, specifically on my neck, so I wanted to take some proactive anti-aging steps into my regimen. I’ve used this regularly for months (just finished the tube) and I see no difference. I’m really disappointed because I thought I would see something by now, and not sure it’s even worth continuing considering the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved Skin Texture I don't typically write reviews, but I bought this product several weeks ago along with skinceuticals CE Ferulic. I have been using it every other night with consistency and the CE Ferulic every morning followed by a basic SPF 50. My skin is Fitzpatrick Skin Type 1, very sensitive to product, and typically a bit dry. I don't know if it's due to the combination of the two products or only the retinol (I've used the CE Ferulic alone before) but my skin texture is the best it's been in years. The roughness I was experiencing has diminished, but the product isn't so harsh that I'm constantly peeling--a problem I've dealt with before with higher potency retinol and retin-A. At this point, I haven't yet noticed any difference in fine lines, but I'll admit that 3 weeks of use might be a bit too soon to determine effectiveness. I might bump up to the .5% to see if I have the same/better results, but I will likely continue to use some version of this product regardless because the skin texture benefit is so noticeable.

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.
