So I've been serious about my skincare since I turned 36 yrs old, & I've read & heard nothing but that retinol is the #1 active ingredient everyone should be using to help fight off aging, fine lines, sun damage, acne, & among other things. But there's so many retinol options out there to choose from its seriously overwhelming. So when I was sent "Hello Results Daily Retinol" by IT cosmetics I was like heck yea! IT cosmetics put so much thought & time in this product development as well as their other products that I already enjoy so I knew I'd probably like this one too. I put this product on as a last step in my skincare routine, there's no scent at all & it has a serum/cream like consistency & it has a yellow tint. When applied it made my skin feel cool, which made me confident that I had just put an active ingredient on. This serum-in-cream also made my skin feel very smooth & very hydrated, so I did not add a moisturizer on afterwards. I'm actually starting a see a difference in my skins appearance after had been using this product the last 3wks & think I will be purchasing this before I run out. I really like the results & how its made my skin look & feel & I definitely recommend it to everyone looking for a great anti-aging skincare retinol product.
Most Helpful Critical Review It seems nice enough but I couldn't really use it
This cream is lightweight and rubs in really nicely. It's a little more greasy than I expected going on, but it absorbs very quickly and doesn't leave a heavy feeling or a greasy feeling afterwards. Despite the texture feeling a little more oily than I'd expected, it did not seem to make my skin greasier in the t-zone while I wore it.
Unfortunately, despite multiple efforts to try to wear it, including one time under makeup, I had to remove it pretty quickly after applying it. It has a lovely, light scent... it's not cloying OR overwhelming. But something in the scent still triggered a migraine for me, which was honestly a bit of a surprise. Usually, I find that it's only very strong scents that do this to me, and I tend to pre-test products by rubbing them on my hand and sniffing first (which sounds weird, I'm sure, but when you've had migraines, you get it).
I did that with this product, and it seemed okay. I think it was just once it was on my face for a few minutes in a larger amount, closer to my nose, it was a problem.
While I can't give a long term review, what I can say is my skin felt very soft supple right after it was all absorbed (and even for several hours after I cleansed to remove it). It wasn't sticky or tacky (two things I hate in a skincare product).
I don't use foundation but my moisturizer and other makeup went on nicely over it the first time I tried it (the subsequent times I was wary of a headache, so I didn't put any additional product on). This is something I always particularly notice with powder-based products, like blush or highlighter and I didn't have any issues applying them (no streaking or clumping up).
My skin is sensitive, with some t-zone oiliness and periodically prone to breakouts (which typically are NOT product related). Some products tingle, and even though sometimes that's expected it can be too much for my skin. This did not tingle at all and It didn't burn my skin, it didn't seem to cause any other irritation (again, I didn't get to wear it long, but usually I can tell quickly if a product will be a problem for my somewhat fickle skin), either. Plus, I tested it on my hand each time and my hands are very eczema prone (especially this time of year) and it didn't irritate my eczema. That's not to say I'd recommend it if you have eczema on your face because with the retinol it might be a problem over extended usage.
I have written reviews of products before that had very heavy scents where I've flat out said if you're a migraine sufferer and your migraines are triggered by scents, you might want to pass on that. I am NOT going to say that on this product. I would say try it sparingly if you're especially sensitive and see how it goes. This wasn't a scent I thought would be an issue for me, and I think it's probably not going to be one for most people, either.
One thing I do want to point out. This is a sample size, and I only used it 4 times, plus small dots on my hand each time. I *maybe* could have gotten one more full use out of the tube. I feel that's important to note because I honestly don't think I could've given a review of any long term benefits with how small of a sample it was, even IF I'd been able to try to wear it daily or every other day. In my experience, I have to use a product for a few weeks to really see any differences.
This is especially true if I'm introducing a new product because sometimes (not always) a new product may initially make me break out, but once my skin adjusts, I do see benefits from it. I really don't know how anyone can say honestly, with a sample so small, that they were able to try it enough times to see significant improvements in any skin concerns.

I'm on my 4th jar of this. If used correctly, it's what your missing in your skin care routine. When I 1st started using it I did 3x a week (only at night) now I'm daily every night.
Not worth it
Tropicalbabe from Albuquerque
Do not buy. You'd expect this product to do what it claims after 12 weeks and specially at its price point but it doesn't do a thing it claims other than going on smoothly. I purchased in September of 2021 and have seen zero of things this claims to do to your skin. To me, this felt like any other moisturizer and this is supposed to have retinol? Doubt it. Save your money and buy something else. Wrinkle reducing cream is a big lie. I wouldn't repurchase if I was given the $$ for this.
just not worth it
EBeth from KC
although it smelled good and had a nice texture, I didn't notice any results from this product and the price tag is pretty hefty.
Caused my skin to itch, burn and peel.
Jminar from Little Rock, Arkansas
Used it for weeks without issues until I started waking up with my face itchy and swollen. My face then peeled so I changed lotions temporarily. I switched back to this lotion one evening thinking my face had healed. Woke up with my face all itchy and realized the serum is the culprit I do not have sensitive skin either.
Soft & Smooth
CG10 from Portland/Vancouver
Can use everyday if you choose, as this does not dry your face out like some other retinol creams do. Smooth to face & great coverage.
Great for those that know how to use retinol
DianaM from Florida
It is an amazing starter retinol! For those that easy into it
Only use 2 times per week and over a moisturizer. Don't use any actives while your skin gets use to the retinol or you will definitely get the uglies
Jen7 from NJ
I like that you can use this either in the morning or night. It's a very light texture but makes you skin soft.
TattooedBabygirl from Windsor, PA
Very hydrating and feels good going on. Hydration helps plump the skin therefore reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. After using for some time it does reduce lines and wrinkles as well as correcting the skins texture and appearance.
I wii buy again
CG from Arizona
I use daily on clean face under moisturizer. It has evened skin tone.
momoffive from Iowa
I've been using strong retinols for years, and have even used a prescription retinoid for my acne for 6 months without issue. My skin is not sensitive. I bought this for my neck and chest because my PTR night fusion just ran out and this seemed like a better value. I always apply right before bed and wear sunscreen during the day. I used this stuff for 3 days with no problem. Day 4 my neck started to burn, itch, turn red, and I had small bumps all over it. It's now day 6 and I haven't used this stuff again. I'm still itchy, burning, and bumpy. Sooo many people are having this same issue! I normally love IT Cosmetics skincare, but not this stuff. I was going to wait a week and try again, but after reading the reviews, this is going directly into the garbage.
Love the moisture that it leaves on the skin!
Kimberly from Livermore
I apply a pump to my face and it states hydrated all day
Time will tell
Cc from Milton, DE
Never used anything like this before. I used confidence in a cream but nothing stronger. So anxious to see if there is a difference.
Would buy again
Bardot from Michigan
Happy with the results. Helps with wrinkles. I used this mornings in addition to Retinol Sqaline 5% at night. I like that IT doesn't test on animals either so I will support then.
Miley from North Carolina
Best product I have ever used to smooth my skin! It is not a moisturizer I learned so always use my serum bye bye lines and confidence in a cream following application of it. I get more compliments on my skin and younger appearance. Have used two jars and will buy more! Great job on skincare It Cosmetics!
I would buy this again
Alexis from West Palm Beach, FL
I got a sample from Facebook and was amazed that I saw results in about a week after using this. The reason I took off 2 stars is due to how expensive it is for just a small amount and the fragrance. I hate the smell of this product. Although the price or strong fragrance isn't ideal, I plan to purchase it because it does work.
LRM from North Carolina
I am 35 and have been using this product for a month. I can already see improvement on the fine lines on my forehead and lines around my eyes and discoloration on my face. I actually went out without makeup one day and a girl I know told me my face looked so smooth and clear. I haven't been told that since I was in my early 20s! It smells great. At the beginning my face was a little sensitive to it. Make sure you don't apply any to your eyelids!
Delivers on everything it says. Use small amount.
Just me from Ohio
I was using a product with retinol in it before Hello so when I switched to Hello, my face had no adverse reactions. However, I decided to try it on my neck having never used retinol on my neck before…burned, red, a tiny bit scaly…my fault…should've started much slower on my neck area. As for my 59 year old face, nothing but positives using it every night before moisturizing. (I started out using every other night first 2 wks). Just use sparingly…it WILL work. I've used it for about a month now. Noticeable textured skin smoothed out, dark spots faded greatly, plumped skin so wrinkles less noticeable. Just ordered the big jar after using the small tube first. Will try to keep buying for those noticeable changes but unfortunately pretty pricy so we will see.
destroyed face back again.
ugh from Denver, co
I have no idea why my previous review has three stars. Leaving another to show the one I wanted to show, albeit truly zero. (p.s. my face still feels like leather after the past 2 days of just putting direct Aquafor on my face and chest.)
Surpassed My Expectations!!
Carol H from Pacific Northwest
I bought this during the 21 days of beauty sale thinking it couldn't do more than what I was already using. I was so very wrong and I couldn't be happier about it! There was a reviewer that said she wished she had known and purchased 2… same sis.. same. I started seeing small results almost instantly. First with the plumpness of my skin, then came the brightening, now there is a substantial difference around the eyes. My little tiny crows feet have diminished *almost* entirely. NOW, I will say, that just like with any good retinol, you might experience peeling/ flaking/ irritation. I don't have sensitive skin, and did experience those things. I dialed back every night usage to 2-3 times a week, now every other day, and my skin is IN LOVE. I'm 46, normal to just a tad dry and a recovering sun worshiper. I have not seen this level of result from any other retinol product (and I've tried quite a few). The smell is strong, but I don't mind. Try layering it under their night cream and watch how bouncy, dewy, beautiful your skin is the next morning! I've started putting this on my husbands face as well, he's oily and it does well for him also!
Ruined my skin also - zero stars
Destroyed Face from Denver
This stuff made my skin so incredibly itchy before burning my skin, turning me red, and making my skin peel. The texture of my skin is rough and it feels like I have scars and bumps all over it. My fine lines are way more visible at the end of all this. Threw away half the jar. Reading the other comments, it sounds like this is common. I loved it for the first couple of weeks and then it COMPLETELY destroyed my skin. I do NOT have sensitive skin, but now I feel every single thing I put on my face to correct this mess in some sort of tingle or slight burn. Now it feels like I'm sensitive to everything.
Beware of this product
Going back to Seph0ra from CT
Please think twice before wasting your money on this. It ruined and burned my skin and made it peel. It was not cheap. Every product I have been sold at Ulta has been an underperforming disaster. I feel like I've been ripped off.
Dana D from Charleston, sc
I am seeing good results with this cream. I use it every other night and my skin tone is more even and has not caused any breakouts or dried my normal skin. I like the packaging too, one push is enough for my whole face.
Hello REAL Results
Wifey78 from Kentucky
I received a sample of this as part of a free gift and loved it so much I bought it! This product is amazing! The first results I noticed were that my hyperpigmentation spots, think acne scarring, etc were actually starting to fade. I also noticed my skin appeared to be brighter and my pores were starting to look smaller. Even some of the fine lines around my eyes, mouth and forehead look diminished. This stuff actually works! Now with that said, it works because it packs a big punch with its powerful ingredients and may not be for people with really sensitive skin. I have combination skin and I use it once daily. You can wear it during the day under makeup without it looking funky too but you'll need sunscreen. I definitely recommend it!
This had made such a difference for me.
Margareta from Bremerton, WA
I really like this product. The feel on the skin is so nice and I did notice results within a couple weeks. Definitely improved areas of texture that needed some refining. Love it!
My face peeled so badly.
D1983 from Texas
Be careful with this product. I wanted to love it but it make me look like I was sunburnt. I stopped it for a week so my face could heal then wanted to try once more to see if it was actually this product or my cleanser. It was definitely this product. I couldn't wear makeup for a while because my skin was completely tore up. I've never had this issue with anything else.
