This is my 3rd repurchase of this product. I apply 1 to 2 pumps to my face & neck until thoroughly absorbed (even around my eyes), right after cleansing. Then follow it with CeraVe Facial Moisturizing lotion & CeraVe Eye Repair cream. All 3 products apply & absorb so easily. No greasy feel. No fragrance. Great for my dry, "mature", and sometimes sensitive skin. I've noticed an improvement in the softness of my skin and decrease in fine lines. I use this at night & under my makeup every day. Compared to other "high end" products that contain retinal & ceramide, I think the price point is pretty reasonable. Love it!
I saw this product reviewed on YouTube by the user "hot and flashy." She has many videos and looks great for her age. I'm about 4 years behind her (49) and wanted to try what she was using, and I had a crepey neck from age and gradual weight loss (no surgery) that she didn't have. I started using this on my neck and forehead and saw some minor results, but after the product was on for about an hour it began to pill up even on clean non made up skin. It looked disgusting. Plus it was so tacky on the skin that it really felt sticky and nasty. I can't handle that feeling so I am trying some other products. If I figure out a way to use it where it won't pill up I'll continue using it since I did see some help for the lines and saw some firming, but for now I'm looking for another product.

This is a great product. Its even greater becUse of the PERFECT packaging. Pump top to get perfect amount on your finger tips (wasting NO product behind your nails as w a jar). Perfect size legit for travel carryon, no decanting required. The enire bottle us gilled w product w/o empty space to make it 'look" bigger. And the vacuum lump action uses every single drop of product. Its perfect. Thank you for making so many excellent decisions in getting a great product to real customers. Thank you!

I am currently introduce the retinol to my skin. I also have a mild sensitive skin but when I applied it on I don't get any irritation or burn. For a beginner like me I think this is a good product for beginner and affordable too . Instructions said 2 a days but I do apply on the evening and the day time I use vit C. Make sure you have the sunscreen when using retinol. Let's see after 1month if my skin really renewed

I like this retinol. It's affordable and helped me clear up some of my acne but isn't very strong. There are more options for more expensive retinols that are stronger but if your looking for an affordable one, this is the way to go.

My go to retinol used to be Neutrogena, now it is this. You get a great amount for the price point, i like that it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, I've never had a problem using this retinol. I like the opaque bottle and pump so that light and oxygen doesn't denature the product faster. I use retinol as an aging preventative and am under 30, so i can't speak to reversal results, but i'm happy with how youthful my skin still looks.

I love this serum but I'm concerned that it's not effective now. . It's just over 9 months old ( checked the lot number)and starting to turn yellow.

I use this twice a day to help smooth my skin and hopefully prevent excess wrinkles in the future. A little goes a long way, so the bottle lasts a long time. Unscented and is absorbed quickly, leaving my face smooth without feeling oily.

Idk how I described this product. Hands down . Its do the job even for my sensitive skin and yet so cheap compared other brand . I used every other night with moisturizer.

i recently purchased this product because the store didn't have my other retinol serum, but so far i like it a lot! i haven't noticed a huge difference in the way my acne scars have looked but i do like the way it feels lightweight and breathable on my skin!

I had been using the resurfacing retinol but bought this by accident and I absolutely love it/my skin loves it. Both work phenomenally but this seems to leave my skin better every day, next week I expect to look 12 again.

I have used this product in the past and like it. However, this bottle will not dispense any product no matter how many times I have tried to pump it. I am going to return it for another one.

I have had 2 milia spots on my forehead for over 6 mos. I have wasted so much time and money trying to get rid of these. Nothing worked. Within 2 weeks of using this product morning and night, both have disappeared! This is also the least expensive product I've tried! Amazing!

I have always avoided retinols due to my very sensitive skin, but this retinol is gentle enough for my rosacea prone skin. I have gotten wonderful results without the irritation or burning sensation.

This is the first retinol product I've ever used and I like it. I have fairly sensitive skin and this does not bother me at all. Cerave makes quality products all around

I have been using this serum for 6 months and I'm in love with it. It truly has helped decrease oil production in my oil skin and I have seen a significant decrease in my acne as well. This stuff is amazing!!

Works great, haven't purged at all just some shedding around my nose area. Getting great results in the morning after applying
Recommend 10/10 for a beginner retinol

I began using this product last month and have noticed a significant different in skin tone and texture. The serum goes on clean, is scent free, and works like a dream. I highly recommend this serum!
Iris from HOUSTON
I had cystic acne during my teens and most of my 20's. I spent thousands of dollars in Dermatologist and other treatments. My acne was mostly in my nose that left me with deep scars. The last dermatologist I visited recommended CeraVe Products and I have used them for the past 3 or 4 years, mainly the face wash and face lotion. After 2 pregnancies my skin has taken a toll so I have more attention into my face. I use this product combined with CeraVe PM face lotion and I am very happy with the results! I combine with other CeraVe products rotating during the week such as CeraVe Skin Resurfacing Retinol Serum (blue one).

I really liked this product. While using this product, I noticed I had less breakouts. I also noticed I had a clearer overall complexion! You only need a little bit of the product, so it lasted me a long time!
Csue from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
I like this product a lot and do not find it dries out my fairly dry skin too much. It has definitely helped with acne and fine lines. But I can't find the percentage of retinol listed anywhere and so I wonder if another product would be stronger and better.
gendym from undisclosed
excellent product for beginners in retinol since it does not irritate and you can use it every day, although it says to use day peel none recommended since retinol is photosensitive.
Lala from Miami
I love CeraVe and this one doesn't disappoint. Goes on smooth and doesn't irritate.
