I don't usually bother to do these reviews, but now I felt I have an obligation to inform all about the results of this retinol cream. It's amazing stuff! I started using it very carefully, only twice a week and with very, very small amounts. After two weeks i used it in every other night and when I noticed my skin tolerates the cream, I have used this cream almost every night. After 6 weeks (don't wait for instant results) my skin is bright and looks really healthy and glowing, and I have noticed that especially the wrinkles on my forehead has almost disappeared. Retinol does work! I'm 37 years old but my skin was quite young looking at the first place, so I don't know does this cream do real wonders but for me it's perfect! AND HERE IS A GOOD TIP to everyone who's skin gets irritated after using this cream: after washing your face, use a comforting toner. While skin is still damp, put one drop of argan oil (I guess other facial oils work just as well), I use Acure organics. Facial oil works like a trojan horse, it delivers retinol deeper into skin. Wait that the oil absorbs to your skin and then add retinol cream. If skin feels dry, put your usual moisturizer (I use very thick organic Madara's Pihlaja daily defence cream, I suppose it's not in IHerb's selection, sob...)This facial oil -trick is very good especially for under eye area! AND MOST IMPORTANTLY: use just a tiny amount and don't rush, result a good if you let your skin to get used to it and remember that tingling feeling and a little redness is part of the process!
Recently, I have been entertaining the idea of trying a prescription retinoid for skin renewal. I use an assortment of glycolic and lactic acid OTC products but have found that I need something stronger to really penetrate and clear out my congested pores. While browsing iherb one day, I came across the Life-Flo Retinol A and was intrigued as I was unaware that you could purchase such an item OTC. I've used other products from Life-Flo and have always found that they are of excellent quality. First of all the cream is strongly scented, it has a vivid vitamin C scent which isn't horrible but could be too much for scent sensitive people. The cream itself spreads easily on the skin and only a small amount is required to cover a large area. It isn't a terribly heavy cream and absorbs well into the skin with no sticky residue but I could find it being too much for oily skinned people. At first, I only started applying this to my nose as this area on my face is fairly hardy and the other reviews note a peiod of peeling. I did not have any adverse effects on my nose, no redness or peeling and my skin felt somewhat smooth. I started using the cream on the rest of my face but found that it didn't really live up to my expectations. Firstly, I didn't experience any peeling, stinging or redness which is obviously a good thing but to me these show that the product is working, especially with a chemical exfoliant. I continued to use but found that my skin wasn't clearer, smoother or softer, instead, I think that it may have caused some congestion. I gave the cream to my mum to try and she was not overjoyed with it either. Sadly, I will not be repurchasing.

Even though I didnt appear to peel or get red the following morning, by the next evening I did. I use every two days now. Super hydrating without breaking me out. Excellent value.

I've been using this cream for about a month now and I can say that I see a difference on my face. I'm 53 and it seems that it has helped making my face glow. The first week there was a stinging sensation just after I applied the cream but I now tolerate it better. I use it at night just before going to bed and in the morning I put on my usual moisturiser with an SPF50. I stopped derma rolling while on this cream as I thought it might be too stressful for the skin. When I finish the jar, I will give it a break for a month, go back to derma rolling and continue the cream afterwards. Thanks to iherb for fast delivery, great products and reliable customer reviews that always help me make good choices!
