Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair:

I adore this product, it is just extremely pricey. It is not greasy at all, it is pretty light weight and makes my skin feel soo nice the next morining. I am very prone to breakouts and this never breaks me out. I always tend to see night creams that are too thick and I always break out.

Comments about Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair:

First time I use a retinol cream, so far it has been gentle as I use it with the buffer cream to reduce irritation. I have not had any skin sensitivities, redness or irritation. It's been less than a months use so I can't really tell if there had been a change with fine lines or expression lines.

      The product was recommended to me and a small sample given. I tried it every other day and fleet the product was good. I am at the age where sun spots and uneven skin tone has begun. I haven't been faithful every two days but I have noticed a difference with no irritation as some retinol can do.

                        A:

                        It really depends on your skin and your sensitivity level. If your skin is tolerating the retinol you do not need to use the buffer cream.

                    • Q:

                      I am 53 years old and get clogged comedones on my face, almost like warts rather than zits. And, I am getting sun spots on my face and have enlarged pores on my chin. Will this product help these conditions? I also use Special Cleansing gel, daily micro foliage and skin smoothing cream and intensive moisture balance.

                        Overnight Retinol Repair will help with all of these conditions. Use Overnight Retinol Repair at night and your normal skin care including sunscreen during the day.

                    • Q:

                      Wondering if this product would be less effective if applied a moisturizer over it? I will be mixing it with the buffer cream 1:3 to start. I have read to use a pea size amount.....does this mean if I am mixing with buffer it should be a pea size in total or pea size amount of product & 3 pea of buffer? Last question....if I use sunscreen is it ok to be exposed to direct sunlight? I usually go for a 45 min run & drive 40 min to work in sunlight daily.
                      Thanks��

                        A pea size amount is the total size for the combination of the two products. Layering moisturizer over it will dilute it some. We do not recommend direct sun exposure even with sunscreen.

                        A:

                        We recommend using about a pea size amount for each application. To dilute this product we recommend using 3 times more buffer cream than retinol. So 1/4 of a pea size of retinol and 3/4 of a pea size of buffer cream.
