        Just started using it a day ago and it did say you would see results very soon - I agree. Hopefully not my imagination, but my lines seem much more 'plumped' - and all Cera Ve products are paraben free so that's an extra plus. Highly recommend.

                CeraVe Skin Renewing Retinol Cream Serum is a must-have for anyone. I apply to my face and neck every night before I apply moisturizer. I see a difference after 4 weeks of use! My fine wrinkles are minimized, especially those pesky forehead lines, and my skin is glowing! I am glad I found this product at the local drugstore. No more paying high prices for anti-aging skincare. Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol rock!

                  I have used the product for several months and will continue to repurchase. It is highly-reviewed by many health professionals and I find it to be a great product in my skincare routine. I use Retin-A, but use this product in more sensitive areas, skin below the eye, creases of the nose and on my neck. Gentle, yet effective.

                      I have sensitive skin and allergies, but really wanted to use a serum with retinol. This line was recommended by my dermatologist so I took a chance. It is completely non-irritating, and I use it morning and evening under my moisturizer. It seems to soften my skin, I definitely think lines are less noticeable, and even though it's not advertised as such, my skin seems to be more even-toned. It's definitely not a prescription retinoid, but that's perfect for me.

                        This made my dry skin feel more moisturized. I use it nightly on face, neck and hands to moisturize. My fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable when skin is well moisturized. I would prefer no retinol so that I could use it without worrying about sun protection.

I've tried returning it to the store for a different tube but don't have the receipt. Is it me? Should I be squeezing the product out in a special way?

                            Hi there! We're glad that you reached out to us. Our Skin Renewing Serum should not be leaking out of the side when you are squeezing it with the cap off. It should only be coming out from the applicator. When you have the chance, please give us a call at 888-768-2915| M-F 9am-5:30pm EST and provide the advocate with the reference #03938958. We look forward to hearing from you!

                        • Q:

                          The description indicates that this formula contains an "encapsulated 1% retinol and ceramide complex." Why is retinol not listed in the ingredients?
