Retin- A Micro 48 Yr Old Male - New York, NY

I've been using retin-a for years ( tretinoin) I love it. It works wonders- I take breaks from it during the summer just because I'm outside more.

Two Years Retin A Use, by Far the Best Commitment for my Skin I've Ever Made. - Great Britain, GB

I live on the coast and never bothered with sunscreen. In fact I loved the sun kissed appearance of mild sun burn. Nothing pleased me more than the feel of the sun on my face.

Needing Reassurance. Joplin, MO

Hi! I am 43, an ex-sun worshiper, and I used to work at a tanning salon...needless to say I have skin issues! Even with all the tanning in my younger years ( I quit at around 32 or 33.)

This is my second week into using Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0. My approach (which was ver zealous one) was to use it every night before bed for 2 weeks straight.
