Skin Care Review: Retin-A

by Steven, Centreville, VA United States


begins working rapidly. dowsn't require a lot of effort

must be used on a regular basis and requires continued use to mantain benefits

I bagan using Retin-A and began to notice face peeling within three days. This required me to skip several days. I used it for about three weeks all total but the flaking and peeling never seemed to be lessened. I discontinued use because of the flaking/peeling. I did however notice some small improvement in the appearance of my skin. In addition, my facial skin became somewhat reddened and sensitive. Only one application per day in the evenings was required. The peeling is an unfortunate side effect and my conclusion is that I would not use this product again.

I would recommend it only if I could be sure that the peeling would eventaully subside.
