    Comments about Dermadoctor Poetry in Lotion Intensive 1% Retinol:

    I'm 43 and have only had this for a week- upon first use I saw a reduction in pore size. I wish it felt more moisturizing, but it's certainly not drying. I use every other night with moisturizer in between. Great product and I already know I will continue use just based on what it's done with my pores!

      I have tried various retinol products (Rodan Fields, Thomas Roth, Philosophy, Nuetrogena, etc.) and I keep going back to this one. I LOVE Poetry In Motion for my skin! My skin is clearer, not dull and has a healthy glow. I'm definitely going to stick with this product from now on.

          Comments about Dermadoctor Poetry in Lotion Intensive 1% Retinol:

          I bought this one because my store was out of the Peter Thomas Roth RETINOL FUSION PM™.
          Follow the instructions because you will need to use a moisturizer. I have very oily skin and it can tolerate retinol but Poetry in Lotion Intensive 1% Retinol made my skin flakey. I use it every other night.

          Once I'm done with Poetry in Lotion Intensive 1% Retinol, I'm going back to Peter Thoms Roth.

            This is a product I use daily and have seen great results in reduction of fine lines and smaller pours, as well as lightening of dark spots. It doesn't irritate my skin like other retinol products can.

                Comments about Dermadoctor Poetry in Lotion Intensive 1% Retinol:

                I have noticed a difference in the fine lines and wrinkles. However, I did put it on under my eyes and the skin looked like it was chapped and swollen. I had to wait about 4 days for it to clear up back to normal. I would suggest not putting it to close to the skin under the eye but I still use it very sparingly and since have had no problems.

                      A:

                      You can certainly use Poetry in Lotion in conjunction with Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser; for best results, limit initial use to no more than every other night as your skin's tolerance adjusts. Only a pea-size amount is needed. Wait 20 minutes after cleansing to apply to completely bare, dry skin at bedtime. Avoid simultaneous application of other topical treatments/moisturizers in order to reduce the risk of dryness or irritation of the skin. Be sure to wear broad spectrum SPF 30 or more during the daytime, as use of retinol and glycolic acid can make your skin more susceptible to sun damage. We hope this helps!

                      A:

                      We recommend avoiding the eye area to prevent irritation. This product is safe for use on the face; apply sparingly. Limit initial use to no more than every other night. Gradually increase frequency of use to every night as tolerated.
