Skin Care Review: Retin A 0.1% by Ortho

by Ken Wilson, Dallas, TX USA


Slightly reduces fine lines of eye lids. Reduces appearance of large pores.

When used every day, caused severe skin irritation of eye lids, only redness, else where.

I only had fine lines in the lower eye lids that I wanted to eliminate, which it only slightly reduced. Also, wanted it to eliminate acne scars/large pores on my cheeks, nose, & forehead. It seems to reduce the pores in these areas, but did not reduce them to the point I would like. It only seemed to reduce the acne only slightly. When discontinuance of it, the acne scars appear to go back to the way they were before using it. So, guess it causes inflammation while using it, that really improves the appearance of the acne scars. improves the appearance of the acne scars.

It provides slight improvement, but don't expect it to eliminate all your problem areas.
