Not Sold on This One

About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment - 1 oz:
I ordered this to help with some fine lines I've begun noticing on my forehead. I have been using for about a month and I do not see the slightest difference. I have strong skin and can use every night...and still nothing. I also don't like the way it feels on my skin. It's just not for me. I think I will return to try my luck with some different Paula's Choice products as I have tried some samples that seem very promising.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great product if started just when you begin to have wrinkle
from Phoenix, AZ
I use this product now 3-4 nights a week on my combination skin. I feel the tingling after applying my serum with pc oil booster, then I rotate between the Resist moisturizer and Clinique's moisture mask for nights I need extra moisture. I used to peel on the orbs of my cheekbones but now I just have tight wrinkle decreased radiant skin! I'm so excited to see results after a month of use. I hope it keeps working. I do also use the PC BHA foam once weekly and BHA gel on the nights I want to go easier but I believe because of all 3 products I'm seeing results I can't leave without!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
Thought I could improve on the GREAT results I'd gotten from Paula's Resist Intensive Retinol Serum: my skin was at its lifetime best. Though I used this product as directed when beginning and mixed with moisturizer from the start, did not use AHA/BHA on the same day and heavily moisturized alternately, my skin was looking and feeling increasingly dry. Three weeks of use, and my face has a lightly crepey look immediately after washing. Back to my previous routine, with gratitude.
Disappointing ) :

About Me Minimalist
I had high hopes for this product, however, I am very disappointed. I had been pleased with the products I had used in the past and thought I would try this retinol treatment. It has not helped one iota, it seems to make my face blotchy and my pores are now larger. Also, I have very hard, white what looks like pimples...I dont know how else to describe it and my pores seem to be filled with white stuff. I know this sounds ekky and it is. I have never ever had this problem before. This product is the only thing I have done different. I have been using this for several months now. I am going to stop using it. I really do hope my skin goes back to normal! I gave it a one because it gave me hope at the beginning....

Just finished 1st bottle
from Green Bay, WI
How long until you can expect to see results? I just finished my first bottle and see no difference. On the plus side, the product goes on smoothly and I have never had irritation with it.

I use this twice a week before bed, 3 times a week makes my skin peel a bit. I love paulas choice products and this one is another win. I've already noticed a reduction in fine lines.

Sorted out my rosacea within days, best skin in years!
This is the single best product I have used on my skin for fine lines, pimples and rosacea.I went through the usual peeling, sensitivity and redness (big time!) for about a month but I'm getting used to it and it has been well worth the discomfort and sensitivity. Rosacea has all but gone! And if it does flare up, it's gone again within a night or two, same with pimples.I wasn't and still am not able to wear sunscreen with it (highly sensitive skin) and I can only wear very gentle moisturiser, has been around 4-5 weeks since I started using it. This will become a staple in my routine.Just be careful at the start and don't push it! If react badly just lay off for a few nights and start again.

Not effective - no results
from Austin, tX
I used this at night with another Paula's Choice Resist Retinol product , and between the two of them I did not see any results after using for months. It's nice that these retinol products are at a more accessible price point, but I was disappointed to find that for me they did not work at all (no dryness, peeling either, which is generally a good thing, but did not see any results in cell turnover either.)

from Charlotte NC
I love it! It works great! all mine fine wrinkles disappeared. I just finished my first bottle. Can't wait to receive my second. It even helps me with my acne. I use it in combination with the PC beauty oil every day. LOVE IT!!

Great on top of tretinoin
from Airdrie, Alberta
I use this to apply on top of my prescription tretinoin. Tretinoin is great, but it has no antioxidants, peptides, anti-irritants, etc. I have a 0.1% Retin-A script, and whoa, does it ever leave my skin dry! Luckily, putting several dots of Paula's Clinical 1% Retinol on top of that, or any, prescription tret/ret puts an end to any dryness - and, of course, adds a nice bunch of goodies that the scripts sorely needs. My skin is just fabulous at 48 (even tho I suntanned like a fiend when I didn't know better/care early on), and I'll never contemplate botox! I'll grow old as gracefully as product use alone will allow.
