Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Retinol product of all for me. I rarely write a review but after using this product for over a year felt the obligation to pass along my experience. This is hands down the best retinol formulation for my skin. All other products , even some other Dr. Gross products make my skin too pink with daily use... This does not. It has definitely improved the trexture and glow of my skin. I am 58 and have spent a small fortune on seeking out anti-aging products that really make a difference. This does. I just wish it came in a bigger bottle so I could use it more generously on my neck and chest too. Recommend you try if you have sensitive skin, prone to breakouts that needs brightening. It is wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Acne Although not advertised for acne, through some research I learned that retinol is great for hyperpigmentation and scarring. I really suffer from hyper pigmentation so I decided to try this product out! Through two weeks of use combined with the Hydra-Pure Moisturizer, I have noticed a lot of changes and so have my friends/family. The spots where I have hyper pigmentation reduced from a deep red to a lightish pink color and overall my face looks more clearer and brighter. Overall my skin looks and feels more balanced. I have not had a problem with this serum being over-drying. However, I would recommend using this product in lieu with the Hydra-Pure Moisturizer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Product I wasn't sure what to expect when I started using this product but I was pleasantly surprised to find my skin less blotchy and more calm after using it. I use it every morning before I put my makeup on and sometimes at night (I use my finger tips and I put it all over my face and neck) . It is the only product I have ever used that does not change the way my foundation goes on, or stays on (it doesn't make my combination skin too dry or too oily), and it doesn't make my adult acne act up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth buying! My mom got this for me and it is one of the few products that I feel helps my skin. I especially like that it helps control the oil in my skin. After using at night I wake up in the morning without an oil slick on my forehead. My skin feels smoother, tighter and firmer. The color of my skin is more even looking with less discoloration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd Bottle I just purchased my 3rd bottle of this solution. I am 44 years old with fine lines and dark spots. Since using this product my skin has become smoother. Very few fine lines and my dark spots have lightened significantly. 1 bottle last me about 5 months. I use it every night before bed. Due beware to not get it on your eye bows, as it will lighten them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need more thorough directions! The directions for use of this product were vague. You need to specify how many drops to put on the pad and whether it is better to put it on specific spots or all over the face.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product This serum has really brighten my skin and dark spots. As others have stated it does need more instructions but I just put a drop in each area of my face and spread out with my hand before moisturizer and sunscreen. I use both morning and night.
