    I'm not an expert, but I have tried various retinol products and unfortunately I didn't see any changes in my face with this product. My skin still looked dull & dry. It has a lot of retinol in the mix though, so I would have to think it's doing something?

        I have repurchased this numerous times. It's my secret weapon and favorite beauty treatment. This is the only thing I use at night after cleansing. It's simple, I use this every night (face, neck, and back of hands) and I wake up with glowing, beautiful skin. It's the only retinol that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and it's effective at keeping all signs of aging at bay. Worth every penny! Love it! < 3

          I have very difficult skin. Very sensitive, acne, dry flakes, hyperpigmentation, finelines, the works. I use nightly on clean, dry skin. I have noticed a huge change in my skin texture and my breakouts. No difference so far in fine lines but even if it doesn't help that at all I will continue to use this product because I'm so pleased with the results.

            Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM:

            I have gone thru one bottle so far and I will say my skin looks better. I have used Dr. Brandt Retinol in the past which was more of a cream, but I think PTR works better. Also there can be a lot of wasted product with creams as you can never get all the product out. I like that this product is a liquid, no waste. I actually hold the eye dropper right to my face and then spread using my finger tips. I might give it 5 stars, just need more time to evaluate it.

              Gucci for the face

              Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM:

              I'm only 19 but i believe early intervention is important for aging. I use this every night on a dry face and LOVE IT. I do have some lines but haven't noticed that it's made a difference yet, it has tremendously helped with my acne, acne scarring, pores, overall texture and complexion. I have used a doctor prescribed retinol cream before for acne and found that it was drying and actually worsened my acne. My prescribed retinol cream did nothing and this has improved my skin in so many ways, the fact that its a serum is a plus. It's like gucci for your skin!!

                For the last several months, I've been using this product every night after washing my face; this most recent purchase is my second bottle. I notice that my skin looks so much better when I use this every day - I started every other day at first to minimize irritation but I didn't have any issues at all. The biggest difference I see is improvement in my skin tone and texture.

                      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.

                          Yes, you can use both. We recommend layering products in order of texture; thin to thick. Therefore the Retinol Fusion PM would would be applied first, followed by Un-Wrinkle Turbo.

                          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!

                          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!
