          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.

                Comments about CeraVe Skin Renewing Retinol Cream Serum for Fine Lines & Wrinkles:

                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 really like the way this feels on my skin. It absorbs quickly and doesn't seem to interfere with putting makeup over top of it. I use it before Cerave PM moisturizer both day and night. I've been using it for about 2 weeks and I haven't noticed much of an improvement in my fine lines/wrinkles but I have noticed that my skin feels much more hydrated and smooth and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I agree with the other reviews about the product being extremely difficult to get out of the tube. For this reason, I don't know if I will purchase it again.

My skin looks smooth and pretty with this on (under my sunscreen and moisturizer) and feels very smooth and soft. Haven't been using it long enough to rate longer term results but it's affordable, dermatologist recommended and so far, so good.

                          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.
