Great product, but NOT for my sensitive skin

Comments about CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment - 1 oz:
I bought this product for myself, thinking my skin need a little retinol, early anti aging prevention type of thing. But turned out, every time I use this, I always have break outs. My skin is dry, acne prone, super sensitive. I have just recently concluded that my skin doesn't love Retinol, too bad. So I gave this to my husband, who has oily skin, large pores and uneven skin tone and non sensitive at all (I can give him anything and he'll be fine haha). His skin looks so good now, glowing and even tone. So I purchased another bottle for him so my husband can look great too.

One Year Review!
I have now used this amazing product for a full year now and wanted to weigh in on the results. I'm beyond thrilled. I use it every other night and have the best skin I have EVER had in my entire life! Between this and the BHA liquid, my skin appears very even-toned, smooth and my fine lines have been all but demolished. My skin glows, and I regularly get mistaken for someone in their early 30s. I trust Paula implicitly for my skin needs and I know I'm getting the best when I purchase from her. Recently I purchased the 1 percent booster and will add a drop to this retinol to maybe kick things up a notch. It's fun to see how good I can get my skin to look! Thank you for everything you do Paula....it's made a huge difference in my life!

About Me Beauty Expert
I have to admit, although I was skeptical about trying this, I am very impressed. I just ordered my second bottle of this because I have definitely seen improvement in my 48 year old skin after adding this to my skin care routine. I have been a user of prescription Retin A for 34 years minus some years for the times I was pregnant or breastfeeding. I actually started using Retin-A when I was 13-14 years old! I LOVE IT. However, adding this product in the daytime after my vitamin c and before my sunscreen (the Resist Super Light Daily Defense...my Holy Grail!!!) has definitely boosted my skin to a new level. I am very happy with this product. I started out slow since I was already a user of the Retin-A and I did not want to over tax my skin. I am now up to daily use in the AM and it works wonderfully for me! I have used other retinol products and can confidently state that this is definitely a product that is above and beyond it's competitors in quality and effectiveness! Thank you Paula Begoun for yet another Awesome product!

Love this product
from Montreal, Quebec
Helped with acne, large pores, uneven skin tones, & smoothed out my skin. I received many compliments after a few weeks of use.

I buy the travel size to get a try before go with the big one.Take my experience in the month, did not cause me problems with my skin .. but it is heavy and oily / greasy .. I think it is suitable for dry skin more, I have a combination skin.i will not buy it again.
I used my first bottle and saw NO results. I used just as recommendations said! I was going to try and see if a second bottle would work but cautious to spend more $$ with no results. Very disappointed!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

As good as prescription from dermatologist
from Lexington, KY
I have oily skin prone to cystic acne - I am perimenopausal. My skin can be somewhat sensitive in that I breakout to certain ingredients. I have tried prescription retin A and my skin just gets flaky and irritated. When I first used this, I had the same reaction. But then I combined with the oil booster as has been suggested, and it is perfect! I use this two times a week and I would say fine lines are definitely diminished and acne is controlled. I use a dropper of the oil booster and three pumps of this and put on my face as well as neck and backs of hands. I use the 10% AHA on the nights after this. I have been told my skin looks very nice for someone close to 50. I have been using PC for almost 15 years and this is a great addition to the line.

Superior Retinol Product
I've been using this for about a year. I previously used the retinol serum and have used prescription retinoids in the past. This is my favorite retinol product on the market. It is very effective. I cannot use more than twice a week or I will begin to peel. In combination with my other skincare products, this does a great job of minimizing the effects of past sun damage and hormonal brown spots. I use this under a moisturizer and have never had a problem with it. Not super crazy about the packaging, as I know I can't use every last bit of the product, but that's not a deal-breaker.
