        I am absolutely in love with this product! I used to use the prescription Retin-A, but that would sometimes irritate my skin and give it a shiny look. I switched to this treatment and it is exactly what i needed! It Since it is a bit more mild, my skin doesn't get irritated so i can consistently use it every night. By now I already finished the buffer cream, so i mix it with a moisturizer and Im loving the results! My pores are looking smaller, scars are fading and skin is looking smoother. I have been falling in love with the entire Age Smart line.

            using every other night for 2 months, mixing with buffer cream, eased into applying alone. I'm very self-conscious of my dark spots and I've noticed sagging and dull tone since turning 50. My recent switch to dermalogica (precleanse, daily microexfoliant, multiactive toner) had been improving my skin but the overnight retinol repair was the missing link! dark spots disappearing, tighter skin and a fresh glow WITHOUT makeup. Enjoying the sample of Age Smart Multivitamin Power serum on the nights I don't use the Retinol. Next purchase!

              I absolutely love how this product comes with a buffering cream to help retain moisture in the skin. Overall my skin appeared smoother and my fine lines were diminished. I use this twice a week. I use the buffering cream on top of the overnight retinol to avoid dryness.

                  I Love how this product comes with a separate cream, so even with my sensitive skin i can customize it and still get the same results . Usually all the other retinol products would irritate my skin.
                  Right away i felt a difference in the texture/smoothness of my skin.
                  Im also using this product to lighten my old acne scars, so far so good!

                    I was so excited to try this product! I have used retinol products before but have never seen anything that can be customized. This product includes a separate cream to mix with the retinol. I tend to have more sensitive skin so this is a good option for me - I started out slowly, using it 2-3 times a week and have been able to start using it up to 5 times a week. Results have been amazing - seeing a difference in as little as a week. Product is large and is a good value as a little goes a long way

It is suggested that you mix Overnight Retinol Repair with the buffer cream to allow your skin to become used to the retinol in this product. If dryness or redness become an issue we recommend using every other night.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. It is normal to experience darkening of pigmentation while it comes to the surface before lightening. We recommend to keep using Overnight Retinol Repair at night and C-12 Pure Bright Serum under moisturizer and sunscreen during the day. Be careful to stay out of the sun and wear a hat during daylight hours.

                        I have sensitive skin and have used prescription retinol before ( tretanoin cream .5% ) and it made my face feel and look really weird and tight...and peeled very badly. I even used moisturizer with it. Is there is difference between this retinol cream and a prescription retinol cream? I know it comes with a buffer cream but I'm just talking about the retinol part.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. Our retinol is mixed with peptides and is slightly hydrating however, the action of retinol may cause redness and peeling if your skin is sensitive. We recommend mixing it with the buffer cream ongoing to prevent over sensitizing your skin.

                          Thank you for your inquiry. You may use this product on going. If you would like to only use it a few times a week that is ok. Remember to always wear sunscreen during the day, we recommend Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50.
