Skin Care Review: Medicalia retinol smoothing cream

by Anonymous


It contains 8% glycolic acid and retinol. It dimished the fine lines that I have around my mouth

The price

I've been doing a LOT of research about skin care now that I am about to be 40. I determined that glycolic acid (an AHA) was one of the best ways to fight the signs of aging. I purchased this product after I used a sample of it for about a week. It stings slightly with the first few uses, but not bad enough to cause me to discontinue use. I immediately noticed a reduction in the vertical lines that are appearing above my mouth. I have dry skin. This product is very moisterizing w/o being greasy. I use it 3-4 times a week. On other evenings I use Avon Anew Clinical which also contains glycolic acid. The product says that it can be used am or pm but the spa where I purchased it advised use at night only since AHAs can cause sun sensitivity. However, the label lists an SPF among the ingredients.

I like this product, but going to try other products before I purchase again.
