dispenser not suitable
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about Resist 1% Retinol Booster - 0.5 oz:
I have not used the product long enough to see results, one thing I find is the "squirt" type dispenser either squirts too little or too much. This product is pricy and I don't want to waste it. An old fashioned eye dropper would be best.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good product, cheap packaging
from San Francisco
Great product but the squirt top pooped off the first time I took the cap off and never fit right again. Because of the broken top the bottle dispenses product unevenly, sometimes getting too much which is a waste. It did take the red out of my stretch marks noticeably after one use so I'm very pleased with that. Just fix your packaging, this product is way too expensive to waste.

A Miracle in a Bottle
from New Jersey
I have been using this for three months. I started slowly so as to mimimize irritation but I saw results within the first few weeks. My skin tone has improved and my fine lines and wrinkles are less visible. I went to see my dermatologist and she agreed that my skin looks much better. The pump is difficult to use, but everything else about this product is fantastic.

I can use retinol again
from Albany, CA
About Me Beauty Expert
I used prescription Retin-A for 15+ years and then my skin became sensitized to everything. I had to stop all Retinol products and my skin suffered. Now I can add this to a moisturizer I do not react to (sorry not PC) with no problem and my skin is looking good again.

Sure it smells funny, but the results are amazing!
This booster is such a diamond - easy to use, mixes right into my moisturizer, and potency/need can be adjusted as needed. I have had absolutely no sensitivity to this product and my results have left my skin in the best condition ever. I also use the 25% vitamin C spot treatment for dark spots after I let this soak in - and the results have been so dramatic it would be cruel of me not to share how amazing these two product work together! So nice to have shoot, bright skin :)

EXCELLENT EXCEPT SMELLS LIKE MUSTARD
from Cape Cod, MA
About Me Beauty Conscious, Beauty Expert, Hip Older Lady
I have been using this retinol product for awhile. I mix it with my serum and apply. Although this is my third bottle, I only recently noticed that it has an unpleasant, mustardy smell to it. Unfortunately, once you notice a smell like that, it becomes very difficult to continue using it and I have not wanted to reach for it for awhile. PC makes other very good retinol products without a noticeable smell, and I will try switching to one of the others. Generally speaking, I love the PC line and use a great many of her products and have since the line's inception.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Wish it was in a better dispense
I love PC's retinol products and had used the Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment for a long time. I love that with this product I can put retinol into any of my PC products. I would have given this 5 stars but the problem I have is that it's very hard to control the amount of drops I use with the dispenser. The suggestion is 1, 2 or 3 drops. It is very hard to get a drop with this pump dispenser. Please put in a dropper bottle so we know when a drop is a drop.

A Daily Must
from Barrie, Ontario, Canada
About Me Beauty Conscious, Beauty Expert, Skin Care Professional
I use this product with my store bought moisturizer every night. Within 2 months, and it was a canadian winter, my skin was moist, fine and deep wrinkles have literally all but gone. I use it all over my face, eyelids too. The skin around my eyes tightened, no more loose crepey droopy area around my eyes. My nose and chin saw deep wrinkles minimized. I now look 15 years younger to some and a definite 10 years to all. Most of all my skin has lost that large pore look and has become a fine youthful tone and appearance. The only draw back is mixing it with my moisturizer, but it is well worth doing so.

Best skincare product EVER
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
This stuff is a.maz.ing. It's both effective and gentle. I've never been able to tolerate retinol on my face - it sends my mild rosacea into overdrive. So I originally bought this to mix into my body lotion, to see if it would improve crepiness. It absolutely did - two or three drops daily in a full squirt of Cerave lotion very quickly made a huge improvement in the skin on my upper arms and legs. HUGE. It's also made my skin wonderfully soft. So then I decided to see what happened if I applied it to my face. I continued mixing it with Cerave, which I don't usually use on my face (but decreased from 2-3 drops to 1-2). I've been applying that every few days, and I have had some flakiness (which doesn't happen when I apply it to my body), but that's to be expected with retinol. More importantly, while my skin has been a little more sensitive to irritation, I haven't had any rosacea breakouts. I am SO happy with this product - it's pricey, but worth every penny. I can't recommend it highly enough. Even if you've had bad experiences with retinol, give this a try.

goodbye cystic acne
By Tracy in RI
I have had cystic acne for many years. During times of great stress I always end up getting an eruption on my chin. And no matter what I do, no matter what product I use, even leaving them alone never helped - I always ended up suffering with a painful unsightly lump on my chin for weeks that ended up becoming an unsightly dark red/brown scar. Eventually it would fade but it always took many weeks. I decided to try this retinol 1% booster. I put the tiniest amount, less than a drop, on the cystic zit as soon as I felt it under the skin; I did this in the morning and at night. And this is the FIRST time I ever had one that healed without getting worse!!! OMG!!! After two days I realized that it was not getting bigger, and now this is day 6 and it's almost completely gone. And as a bonus it's also rapidly fading the last scar had on my chin from one that I got about 2 months ago!Thank you!!!It's a miracle.
