Avene Retrinal - Monroe, LA

I tried retinol and could not tolerate it. My skin...

I tried retinol and could not tolerate it. My skin never got out of the red, flaky phase. My dermatologist suggested Avene Retrinal and, at almost 50, I still get tons of compliments on my skin. Its a magic pill! It also helps with dry skin. The only thing is that you actually need to use a pea size amount....I wasn't using enough for a very long time. I started out with .05 and moved up to .1. I get it off of Amazon now.

So glad you found a product that works for you! This is probably a silly question, but since you said "Its a magic pill" I just want to make sure its still a topical cream, is that correct? I'm assuming you are just using "magic pill" as an expression, but like I said, just want to make sure I'm understanding correctly. :)
