Customer Reviews

“SkinMedica is the holy grail of retinol for me. I started with .25% and worked my way up to this 1% over a couple of years with little to no irritation. The packaging is very nice and the bottles last so long, the product is well worth the price.” – ★★★★★ Gloria, Verified Customer
“SkinMedica Retinol Complex was the first retinol product I ever used, starting about 10 years ago. I was amazed by the results – my fine lines disappeared, dark spots disappeared, skin texture was smoother. For some reason, I stopped using retinol after 3 years, then used a variety of other brands without much effect. I recently read an outstanding review of SkinMedica retinol and knew I needed to go back to my favorite! It deserves 10 stars. The benefits are already showing on my skin after only a few weeks.” – ★★★★★ Melody, Verified Customer
“Total Game Changer. I love this product! It’s truly made such a big difference in my skin. I started off with the 0.5 and recently upped it to 1.0. The first couple of weeks, I experienced redness, sensitively and dryness which are all normal, but after your skin is done purging the results are amazing. My skin feels more plump, fine lines are less visible and it gives me the “glass skin” effect. So glad my friend introduced me to this product. You absolutely need this in your skincare routine.”- ★★★★★ Barbara, Verified Customer
