I have hormonal acne and aging skin. Fine lines and pimples must be stopped! My skin is dulling and I have scars from acne, some age spots on my cheeks and large pores. I have oily skin on top of it. This product is the only in my regimen that solves every one of my concerns. It truly makes a difference. It is as liquid as water, but has more of an oil feel to it. I drop as many drops as needed into my palm then press my hands together, then pat my face with them before bed. I use my fingers to get crows feet and corners. It goes on wet, but dries within 10 minutes. In the morning, my skin is tight, which I love. After 4 weeks of use, my acne cleared up and my fine lines are noticeably reduced. One of the best parts is that my face no longer turns into a grease slick under my makeup. I just started mixing a drop in with my eye cream, so we'll see how that goes. No irritation EVER with this product, btw. I do not feel this is doing much to fade the acne scars and age spots, which is why they invented Reviiva! Give it a try if you are also aging with acne. Though I also recommend supplements for hormonal acne, because topical treatments won't ever stop out of control sebum. Good luck!
I used this product every evening for 6 months. I took photos of my face and I saw no visible changes after 6 months of use. I was not expecting drastic results with over the counter retinol, but it did not live up to its claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Disappointing.

I never write reviews but I love this product. I'm 51and use it every night. My skin looks and feels great in the morning, literally overnight results. You don't need to use much and it soaks in quickly. I try a lot of products regularly and this is in my top 3! I have not had any irritation and I do have sensitive skin.

I bought this for my husband — he wanted to give his skin a bit of TLC without a bunch of steps or perfumey products. He uses a super gentle cleanser at night, then applies a few drops of Retinol Fusion PM, and then follows with The Ordinary moisturizer. In the morning he applies the same moisturizer and sometimes sunscreen. In just three weeks of nightly use he's already had *multiple* comments on the improved tone, clarity, suppleness and glow of his skin! Such a super-simple routine and so effective. This retinol serum absorbs so quickly and easily. I've converted him to a skincare guy!

After one night's application, I noticed an immediate improvement the next morning. My skin was brighter and my hormonal acne began to clear up.

I have been using this product for years and will continue to do so. It is the only product that keeps my skin bright and even. Just always wear sunscreen during the day to protect your skin!
Kay from Charlotte
I love the consistency and how it feels.
It doesn't bother my sensitive skin.

This is far the best retinol serum you can use for textured skin. I had very textured skin and it has improved dramatically in the last couple years. But you have to be committed to a rigorous daily skincare routine to get the best results. Just like being committed to going to the gym daily to be fit and healthy to get results; a skin gym for your face to get results. I love all PTR products but far this is my fave and part of my skin care routine. I like to use it with my red light therapy wand which I use three times a week and follow up with a good moisturizer.
Stacy from Rochester, NY
I really wanted to love this, but my skin literally freaked out on this serum! Be careful, I legit got an allergic reaction to it. Wish I could return it, because it's really not worth the money - not for me at least!
Mac803 from Kansas City
Wasn't a fan...used for 3 weeks and really couldn't tell any improvement in my skin in the slightest. :( Returned:(
Britt from NJ
My sister had a small bottle of this in our bathroom and I decided to try it one night. I'm so glad I did. Probably the best retinol I've used this far. I loved it so much, I bought a big bottle for myself! When using retinol, you have to start slow! I always make sure I use a really good face oil when I use it and I've had 0 issues with over drying or redness. If you know what you're doing, I definitely recommend this!
Annie from DC
I "maybe " will buy it
roselady from mandeville , la.
I use this daily at night after cleansing my skin. This retinol product is not drying to my skin as other retinols have been and I am convinced it is helpful with wrinkles. I have been using it about 5 years and will continue to use it.
zee from fargo
I used 2% retinol serum from SkinCeuticals and it was to strong and to drying so my skin never looked fresh and healthy really. I started with this serum 10 days ago and im so pleased and glad that I got it..its so smooth and moisturizing. My skin has no blemishes or redness as it used to with ceuticals. I highly recommend this product.
5 stars from Spokane, WA
I've been using this product for quite some time now and it's one of the only products that I absolutely won't skip. I had a lot of texture to my skin (those annoying little bumps that weren't really zits) and this completely eliminated that. It also sinks into my skin really well and just feels so soft and smooth. It is worth every penny for retinol users who want a good product and a bottle lasts for a long time. I use half a dropper and it saturates my face completely, it's been months since I've had to restock. If you're considering buying this absolutely go for it!!
Melody from Elko, Nevada
Best Retinol I have used. Absorbs fast and leaves my skin feeling soft.

This product just works for me. I try other less expensive products, but always come back.
vje403 from Tulsa, OK
I've used tons of PTR products, but this is hands down the best product I've ever used. This is the one part of my nightly routine I will never skip. I used this years ago, but couldn't continue because of the cost. I was finally able to purchase it again and yet again have seen amazing results in the texture of my acne prone and acne scarred skin. So grateful for this magic in a bottle and I hope I never have to go without it again!!
Maddi from Philadelphia
I bought this as my first retinol, my esthetician recommended getting it to help with my texture! It feels really good on but I break out after each use, I want to love it so bad but my skin wasn't nearly this bad before starting this product.
BunnyLover from NJ
When I use this product consistently with The Ordinary's Niacinamide, I notice a huge, positive change in my skin. However, PTR is not a cruelty-free brand so I can't bring myself to continue using it after I'm done with my first bottle.
Therefore, only a 2 star rating.
Dj from Terrell,Tx
It takes practice to get used to using this just because of the consistency but it's worth it because that's also a reason I think this works so well. When I rub it into my skin, it's so silky, not greasy and sinks in so well after a few minutes. It's gentle enough around my eye area and because of the consistency, layers well with other skincare care products. I love this! I don't usually leave reviews but I've actually seen results with this one, I had to. I'm 46 , My texture is improved, wrinkles are smoother, skin is more toned in appearance. I will keep this in my skincare routine for as long as they keep selling it❤️💯👌
Emma from Florida
I bought this for my husband as hes always commenting on my skincare regime. I personally use retinA but he didnt want to go that hard core and this was the next best thing. It's simple to use and the little dropper that comes with it makes it very easy to apply without wasting too much. It's not greasy and and absorbs quickly into the skin. A little goes a long way.
V from The Casbah
If you are looking to start using a retinol serum and your skin is dry, this is a great choice.
Since starting to use this serum about 2 weeks ago, I've seen a significant improvement in my skin's tone and texture, as well as softening lines and wrinkles.
I've used retinol in the past, and it can be irritating, but even at 1.5% retinol, this serum is much more gentle than I thought it would be. And, it's hydrating, too, so if your skin is dry like mine, I think you'll like it.
I use 4-5 drops per application after cleansing and before night cream.
Chris from Missouri
Use it every night. Its time released and best ever!!
Skychupie from TN
This is an amazing product and I would highly recommend it to anyone with some experience with retinol. I don't know if it could be potentially irritating for someone that is trying retinols for the first time.
Valerie from Living room
Have wanted to try this, and it does not disappoint. It is very silky and hydrating, and the retinol is non-irritating. I use it at night after cleansing, letting it fully absorb before night cream.
Wambs from Goodyear, AZ
Feels like a very light luxurious oil! It significantly reduced my mild hormonal acne, hyperpigmentation and appearance of fine lines for both my husband and I. We think it's worth the money.
