Most Helpful Positive Review I would definitely recommend
I love this product, I normally use this in the morning when I wake up after I wash my face, and I also use it after I take all my make up off at the end of the day. That's something that I leave on my skin before I go to bed. It leaves your skin feeling very soft, and smooth. Your overall appearance, you're left feeling glowy, you look glowy, you feel great, and your skin just looks refreshed. It does however leave an sticky feeling on your face so if your hair is not up in a ponytail your hair will stick to your face but that feeling doesn't last long so it doesn't really bother me that much but that is a slight disadvantage to using the product. I have been using this product for maybe a little over a week now and I do see a difference in my skin it just looks tighter and feels a lot more moisturized and I am someone that does have fairly dry skin so I find this product really great for me personally. I did receive this product for free for testing/trying out purposes. Which i am very greatful for! I probably never would have bought this product on my own otherwise!!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Great product for most, just not for my skin
I'm 29 and I've been looking to add retinol to my nightly routing for a little while now. I was super excited when I received this in my Vox Box to try! I've tried 2 retinol products before and am super conscious of very slowly incorporating Into my routine so when I got this for testing I went pretty conscious of just starting slow. The last 2 retinol serums I tried totally made my skin super angry so I ditched them and thought this might be different since la roche is so highly recommend by dermatologists. First night using this I had no problems, so 2 days later I popped this on in the evening again. When I woke my skin started showing the angry signs it usually does when I've tried retinol in the past but I stuck with it and liberally applied sunscreen to help me out. The 3rd time I tried this my skin just rally didn't love it again which is such a shame because I love the packaging of these bottles, I love la roche products for the most part but my skin just kept breaking out really badly with this and giving me grief so I've had to stop using it I'm sure this is great for a lot of people and Im probably in the minority, I really loved the application and the bottle but my skin just doesn't love retinol sadly.
I received this complimentary for testing purposes in exchange for a non biased review.

love this stuff. I noticed a deference right away.
My new favorite
Combination oily skin from Michigan
I have been using this for about 3 months now (over the summer and now into fall). I use it at night every other night, but I might move to using it nightly since my skin has not been sensitive to it.
Omg it immediately brightens my skin and makes it so radiant. I feel like it also helps my occasional acne heal faster. It just feels great.
The texture it slightly gooey but it dries quickly and does not leave the skin feeling sticky or greasy at all.
Very good. I loved it.

I've been trying Retinol for ages and this one is really good. No red face or itchy. Every morning my skin is getting better.
Amanda from Illinois
Gentle. As I am starting to get older I am taking preventative measures to for my skin. This retinol cream is affordable and very very gentle on my extremely sensitive skin.
Christah271 from Exton PA
I use this serum after the LA ROCHE-POSAY Hyalu B5 Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum. They work well together and my skin looks great. Make sure you let the first serum dry before the second is applied.

Halle B from Georgia
I recently started using this serum and was having a minor cosmetic procedure , with a new provider. She asked me if I used retinol. I asked why she was asking She told me there's a texture and thickness to skin that has been treated with retinol and she could see that with my skin. Wow, I'm a very satisfied new customer!

First then using the product -so far so good. If it I don't see any changes in my skin as a result, I'll post an additional review.
Nancy0620 from Fort mill
I have the serum(blue) and vit C. Can you please tell me how to use all 3 with Retinol that I ordered?
I've added it to my daily routine!!
Mamama from Nashua, NH
I use this before I put on any moisture creme or make up. It really is nice and I get an additional dose of vitamin C!! I make sure I don't forget my neckline.

I got this in a vox box and havent used retinol before. I didnt know that you should be careful when you first use it because your skin has to get used it or it will get irritated. I also was mixing facial products that shouldnt be mixed due to irritation or minimizing its effects. I also wasnt using it consistently at night because of the irritation. Eventually my skin was used to it and now I use it everyday at night and it has really lightened my acne scars! I was really only using vitamin c before but this has really changed my skin. I read that this is perfect for sensitive skin because the percentage isnt as high as other products, and the results are still good.

Use this with your quartz or jade roller! I instantly feel tighter, brighter and healthier after using. I use this after cleansing in the morning and before my moisturizer, and before my nighttime mask. I dont have too many wrinkles but I have some fine lines that I am treating with this serum. Its a great value for the price and its been a great additive to my beauty routine. I highly recommend!!
Ashley from VA
This product contains Alcohol Denat. It is also at the top of the ingredients list. THIS IS TERRIBLE FOR
YOUR SKIN!!! I thought this brand was suppose to be a good, gentle brand but pay attention to ingredients.

I feel as though I have noticed results in 2 weeks. Love this product.

I did not notice a difference in my skin. Ha this retinol did not irritate my skin like some do. Feels nice on my face! But overall not for me.

This product significantly helped my skin, however it is not the best retinol I have ever tried. I will give it a second chance
Fantastic product for sensitive skin
Casey O from New Jersey
I've noticed improvement almost immediately. Those fine lines between the brows and mouth are not as noticable. I have sensitive skin and rosacea and am on two different topicals and it doesn't interfere or upset my skin at all.
gabrielalopezeb64765 from undisclosed
Has a great smell and super soft texture. It is a little pricy, but I love how it leaves my skin. It has added a wonderful glow and softness. I have been using it every other day to avoid retnol burn but never had a problem.

So I have always used the Redermic R line but Ibwent out on a limb and bought the new serum instead! It does make my face slightly red upon application (before bed) but this goes away shortly after. It has not caused ANY skin concerns (dry skin, break outs, or major irritation). I have been using consistently for about a week and a half and I don't know how noticeable it is to others but I truly feel like my skin is glowing. It had been much clearer (acne) and my pores seen to be slightly smaller/tighter than they normally are. I really hope this product continues to work for me because as of now I AM IMPRESSED.
I like this product!
Alyssa from New York
I usually use this product at night time before I go to bed and during my normal nighttime routine! A little bit of this product really does go a long way- I use it on my forehead and cheekbones. I have noticed it helps my fine lines on my forehead!
I love this product
kristinargreen from undisclosed
This is a fantastic product that I have enjoyed using. Gentle, little to no scent, fast drying. Price point is only thing to dislike about this product.
great product, not for super sensitive skin!
mackenz321 from undisclosed
* i received this product free for testing* I love La Roche-Posay products and this is no exception. This serum felt light on my face and absorbed quickly. It did dry out my skin a bit, as most retinol products do. I found that once a week use was ideal for my skin, but I would not recommend this product for people with extremely sensitive skin.
gingerrobbinshollada from undisclosed
I was worried this would make my skin break out and be greasy. But my skin was so soft after using this product. I love it!
