Concentrated customizable nighttime retinol treatment cream that accelerates skin renewal and reduces the appearance of skin aging.

        I bought this product for the second time because it really works well for my 67 year old face and décolletage. If you want good skin you really need to use retinol products.

                  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.

                          It depends on your skin. We recommend that you build your skin's tolerance level to the retinol before trying this combination. Be sure to wear sunscreen every to protect your skin while using these products.

                        I am 70 and have used Dermalogica for over 20 years. My complexion is very good. I now use Age Smart resurfacing cleanser, mist, daily Micro-exfoliant, and Intensive Moisture Cream. I would like to add Charcoal Masque for large pores on my nose and Overnight Retinol Repair. Does this sound like a good daily routine using all of these products?

                          Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Both of these are appropriate to use. We recommend that you do not use the Daily Microfoliant on the same day that you are using the Charcoal Rescue Masque because of the exfoliating properties in it. Use it 1-2 times per week as needed. The Overnight Retinol Repair may be used starting out on alternate nights so your skin can get acclimated, there is also a buffer cream that it comes with it that may be mixed together. Once your skin becomes acclimated you do not need to use the buffer cream and may use it every night. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

                          Hello Taytay:

                          Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If you are still breaking out on your back we recommend you treat the acne first. For Adults we recommend the MedicBac products, and for Teenagers the Clear Start products. After your skin has cleared up is when we would recommend you to use the Overnight Retinol Repair alone with out any other exfoliating products in the PM.

                          Best Regards,

                      • Q:

                        I am 32 with sensitive combo skin and currently use the ultra calming products. I am prone to reactive redness on my cheeks, nose, and chin. I am, however, concerned about preventing/slowing aging, so want to know if a retinol would be good to use in conjunction with the calming regiment? I also use an AHA morning and night, would this be ok to use with this product?

                          If you have sensitive skin and concerned about prematurely aging skin you can introduce Intensive Moisture Balance in the PM. Retinol could sensitize your skin. It would be best to get face mapped by an Ulta Associate to find a product that suits your concerns.

                        Hello, I read one of the review comments & a lady said that she used this product during the day and at night, is that a good idea to do? Or should this product only be used at night? Also, I'm on my second week of using this product. I use it around my mouth at night for hyper pigmentation and In the morning I use a moisturizer with sunscreen (35) in it every morning and also the jack black chapped stick that also has sunscreen in. I've been doing all these things and I've noticed that I now have some hyper pigmentation that wasn't there when I first started using this product or was there but now seems to be getting darker.. what should I do?

                          Thank you for your inquiry. We do not recommend using this product in the daytime. It is extremely important that you stay out of the sun when using retinol products. Try to keep an SPF of 50 on your skin, re-apply every 2-3 hours and use a hat when outdoors.

                        I am using the Medibac kit for adult acne, can this be incorporated into my regimen? Would I apply before or after the overnight clearing gel?

                          Thank you for your inquiry. You can use this product at night, alone. We strongly advice that you introduce Overnight Retinol Repair slowly and adjust according to your sensitivity level. The MediBac products have exfoliants in them which can cause your skin to be a little more reactive to other products.
