I've been on .05% Retin A for about two weeks. I requested it from my dermatologist in order to try and fade my hyper-pigmentation and smooth out fine lines. I tried it for two days back to back the first week and started peeling pretty badly. I took a break for a week and will probably start using it once or twice a week going forward.

I've already noticed a change in the texture of my skin. It seems brighter, smoother and more moist. Its changed my maintenance ritual slightly. I have to be diligent about using a facial scrub to remove the dead skin and I slather on a high SPF every morning because of the increased sun sensitivity. Overall though, its a small price to pay for smoother skin.
