Skin Care Review: Retin A

by Alexandra


I noticed improvement in skin clarity, elasticity, and a decrease in monthly breakouts.

Skin sensitivity, needed sunscreen if exposed to sun.

As mentioned above using Retin A improved the quality and texture of my skin. There was however an increase in skin sensitivity. I used the Rentin A alone, at night time. Then I would use a skin mousturiser for sensitive skin, as anything too heavy would irritate. There were definately benefits, but if there was a mosturiser I could mix with the Retin A to reduce the sensitivity, it would be preferable. I went down to using the cream only every second night, and found that was good, as the sensitivity lessoned. During the day I would use a mousturiser with a sunscreen, as any sun exposure would only increase the sensitivity of the skin.

All in all, Retin A is a great product.
