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.

                      Happy with seeing results in just one week. Already smoothing my fine lines and wrinkles around my moth and lower face upper neck. Not making my skin sensitive or irritated even with daily use, but I am using the buffer with it right now. Plan to phase out the bufffer over next two weeks and use alone.

                        Can this be used for stretch marks? I am interested in also using for pores on my face but I recently gained some stretch marks so they are still red, which is the best time to treat them in order to have an impact, from what I understand.

                          Overnight Repair Serum is over the counter strength so it is not as strong as Retin-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.

                        I am 70 and have used Dermalogica for over 20 years. My complexion is very good. I now use Age Smart resurfacing cleanser, mist, daily Micro-exfoliant, and Intensive Moisture Cream. I would like to add Charcoal Masque for large pores on my nose and Overnight Retinol Repair. Does this sound like a good daily routine using all of these products?

                          Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Both of these are appropriate to use. We recommend that you do not use the Daily Microfoliant on the same day that you are using the Charcoal Rescue Masque because of the exfoliating properties in it. Use it 1-2 times per week as needed. The Overnight Retinol Repair may be used starting out on alternate nights so your skin can get acclimated, there is also a buffer cream that it comes with it that may be mixed together. Once your skin becomes acclimated you do not need to use the buffer cream and may use it every night. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
