    Happy with seeing results in just one week. Already smoothing my fine lines and wrinkles around my moth and lower face upper neck. Not making my skin sensitive or irritated even with daily use, but I am using the buffer with it right now. Plan to phase out the bufffer over next two weeks and use alone.

              Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair:

              Ok. So I am in my mid-30's and I am dealing with hormonal stubborn acne plus attempting to take preventative care of my skin. Retinol is tricky. Very tricky. This retinol product does come with a buffer cream which is brilliant. The purpose of the buffer cream is to allow you to adjust the amount of retinol being applied to your skin, while also having enough product cover your face....if that makes sense. Per instructions you should start out using a ratio of 3:1 I believe. So 3 parts buffer cream and 1 part retinol. I put the creams on the back of my hand and mix them together to make one cream and apply to my face focusing on my forehead, lower cheeks, chin, jawline and neck while avoiding the creases of my nose, eye and lip area. I started out only using it every other day, for about 2 weeks and have just recently started using it every day, but I am still only using a 3:1 ratio (thereabout) and only in the evenings. You will find some flaking and dryness in certain areas, I think it's to be expected. I also use moisturizer morning and evening. The trick is finding what works for you with how much to use and how often to use it. Per reviews, start light and let your skin adjust and slowly increase retinol over time. If you happen to run out of buffer cream and haven't graduated to using only retinol I believe it is safe to use your favorite Dermalogica moisturizer as a substitute.
              I can definitely tell a difference in the health, appearance, liveliness, tone and condition of my skin. I believe overall this is the result of all of the Dermalogica products I've recently begun as a new skin care routine within the last month. But if I skip a few days of retinol I can definitely tell a difference :)

                • Q:

                  I read to avoid direct sunlight in a few of the answers to questions about this product. Can you elaborate on this? Are you suppose to avoid sunlight/direct sunlight only on the days you have used the product? I usually use juice beauty cc cream with spf 30 During the day. I am inside most of the time bc it is winter but usually walk outside an hour a day & get sun exposure while driving in the car.

                    Thank you for your inquiry. Retinol with increase cell turnover rate which will make your skin more sensitive to the sun. All exfoliants will do this. We recommend using sunscreen everyday regardless if you are using this product however, you should take extra care to avoid direct sunlight. Your CC cream should be enough as long at it is applied heavy enough.

                    A:

                    Please do not apply this product near your eye area. If sensitivity has become an issue we recommend not using this product for several days to let sensitivity subside. When you start using Overnight Retinol Repair again we recommend mixing it with the buffer cream that comes with it and start by using it every other night.

We would recommend starting out slowly or alternating between these products. Discontinue use is sensitivity or irritation develop and be sure to wear sunscreen everyday.
