      Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM:

      I only use this at night in place of a moisturizer, I have cystic acne on my chin and breakouts on my forehead. Within a week of using this my breakouts are almost non existent and my skin is so smooth and not greasy in the morning. I drop two drops each directly on my chin and forehead where I need it most for scarring, and one drop each on my cheeks. My night routine: 1. Cleansing oil to remove makeup 2. Neutrogena pore perfecting cleanser 3. Mario's special cucumber lotion 4. PTR retinol serum PM. I'm pretty confident my skin will look amazing in a month or two.

        Absolutely love this product! I use it every night, even for my sensitive skin. After two weeks, I've noticed a more even, glowing complexion. My large pores on my cheeks are shrinking. This product is very moisturizing for a retinol and it sinks into your skin right away. I love PTR products and this is totally worth the price.

          This product is great.I'very only use this product for about a week and I can already tell a difference in my skin. It lightens, gives you a even tone and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. If you're looking for an anti aging product that would work fast, this is it.

            I'very been using this for two weeks, every-other night. My skin is a bit smoother, lines seem to be softening, and an age spot on my cheek has begun to fade and break up. My sensitive, acne prone skin isn't irritated, and this product hasn't caused breakouts, unlike most other anti-aging serums. Definite ly recommend.

                Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM:

                I had been using a 1% retinol otc product but was looking for something a little stronger. I'm so happy to have found this. I've been using this every night in my face and neck with no irritation or flaking. ( It probably helped that I was already using a retinol product.). It's a watery consistency with an almost silky, oily feel but applies easily. I can see why you may not need a heavy moisturizer, but I do apply an oil free one over this, as well as an eye cream. My 68-year-old skin looks smoother after just one week. I even apply this on my husband's face, and he tolerates it well, too. Will see what it does for my larger pores on my chin, but so far I am really happy with this retinol liquid!

                  I've been using it for 3nights now. After first night I noticed smoother texture and pores looked smaller and after 3rd night skin looks more even and plumper. No purging yet. I love how it looks like I'm not wearing anything on my face at night. I did use a lotion on the Second night with it because I didn't want to get dry or flaky but the next day I didn't see as smooth of texture, so third night I used only this.

                  Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM:

                  MY SKIN TYPE: 24 yrs, sensitive to salycilic acid and benzoyl peroxide and etc.
                  moderate acne, dehydrated and combination dry and oily, wrinkles just beginning to form

                  Expensive, but a lot of bang for your buck. The serum isn't full of empty filler ingredients, and it has the highest concentration of retinol I've found over the counter.

                  The product has transformed my skin and took care of all my issues :
                  small forehead wrinkles
                  clogged pores and blackheads
                  acne

                  There was a small period where my skin adjusted- approximately 2.5 months. My skin purged and had more acne than usual (especially cystic)
                  Since then my skin is acne free, firmer, smoother, and the wrinkles that were beginning to form have disappeared completely!
                  I also believe that the serum helps my acne scars heal and fade faster when I do get the occasional pimple.

                  Will continue to purchase.

                      A:

                      Retinol and Vitamin C actually work great together. We recommend our Retinol Fusion PM for nighttime only use so please be sure to use it then. However, you can layer a vitamin C product under the retinol at night, results have been reported to appear better with the combination.

                      A:

                      This formula is nearly water-thin in texture. It also absorbs very quickly. I don't think you need to wait at all unless you see and feel that the serum hasn't absorbed yet. Your face should not be noticeably damp with serum when you apply moisturizer.

                      Yes, definitely. This is a perfect addition. Just layer your products in "thin to thick" order. This serum is very thin do it quite possibly will be the first thing you apply after cleansing your skin. Then follow with thicker products and creams. Please be sure to wear sunscreen in the morning!

                      Hello! Yes, this nearly water-thin formula is intentionally this fluid in consistency. All it takes is a few drops and the somewhat emollient thin formula allows you to use a little but spread it all over quite easily. Thank you!

                      A:

                      If you want more moisture or to apply a sleeping mask etc., you can apply a nighttime moisturizer over Retinol Fusion PM Serum. Thinner formulas or water-based serums and hydrators would be better applied underneath. This formula has an oily (non-oil) consistency that will seal in the benefits of humectants. Oiler, thicker creams can be applied over it. We hope this helps!
