Reviews & Community QA

Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 125.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value for a Great Retinol Produce I spent a lot of money on skin care. Right now, I am using Sulwhasoo and Amore Pacific lines in general. Very pricey. But I cannot give up on THIS Paula's Choice Retinol Treatment. Not only is it effective, but it has not been bothersome to my sensitive skin. I did take suggestions from other reviewers when I started on this product. I mixed it with other products initially.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product reasonable price This stuff is awesome. I purchased it on a whim after reading the reviews, works just as well as the high price stuff and makes my skin look awesome. My pores have tightened and my skin appears smoother and more lifted. I plan on trying more of the products. I love it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product Really Works! Thank you Paula! I am very glad to newly discover this awesome Paula's Choice brand and the products really work as promised! Please start using this Retinol only few times a week and gradually increase to avoid skin peeling. Also do not use AHA/BHA on Retinol nights. My skin has improved dramatically and very noticeably after using this brand. Makeup goes on so smoothly now. Thank you Paula! Example Night Beauty Routine: Cleanser every night. Paula's Choice Retinol 1% on Sat and Wed nights. Paula's Choice BHA-2 first and then AHA-8 on Sun, Tues, Thu, Fri nights. BHA-2 first and then AHA-10 once a week on Mon night. RESIST Anti-Aging Eye Cream every night around eyes and on forehead. BHA-9 every night on nose area to diminish blackheads and on sudden pimple spot. Finish every night with Josie Maran Argan Oil or alternate with Tarte Maracuja Oil. Sunscreen is a must on daytime. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong but gentle and effective Finally! A retinol product that works without turning my skin into a red, peeling, itchy mess. This formulation is a miracle for me. I definitely recommend ramping up to daily, of course, but I didn't experience any irritation. This product helped me with uneven skin tone on my cheeks and forehead, and it has visibly (!!) diminished fine lines around my mouth. This product is pricey (though much less expensive than some premium brands), but this size lasts me 3 months or so. I will not be without this again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SO DISAPPOINTED!! I was so excited when i managed to find this on the very day QVC was offering 5 EasyPays on everything! I have been wanting to try a retinal product for years, and this one had so many excellent reviews I jumped at the opportunity. I have lip lines on the upper lip area, which only started appearing when I hit my mid 50's. I have never smoked, I stay out of the sun, and when I go out to the store or gardening I swather on sunscreen & or wear a hat. I do not have other wrinkles. At 59 I can say I have amazing skin because I take great care of it and eat right, no alcohol.lots of water.However LIP LINES! I started this product 4 mos ago , using twice a day,7 days a week, and have seen no difference what's so ever. I'm happy it works for so many, but I will never purchase it again. Dr Deneses eye gel gives me better results when used around my lips than this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing Another life changing product from PC. After hearing Wayne Goss, my fav beauty YouTuber, and others rave about her products, particularly this one and the 2% bha I thought I'd give it a try. Omg so glad I did. I'm 43 and have been blessed with good skin but from sun damage and working in the industry and using other skincare products I had large pores and crows feet and some other wrinkles. Tried the retinol first and it is the BEST retinol I've ever used I moved onto the bha. If I had to pick just 2(thank goodness I don't) I'd say these are the 2 that will change your life. I'm not kidding these products are that good! Paula dedicated her life to skincare and fortunately for us we get the benefits. The research and science are there but more importantly the results are huge!! I always go on and on when I'm reviewing Paula's products but I can't help it I love them that much. I always say I wish I could work for her b/c I love her products and could talk about them all day long. Plus I have every person who asks about how I take care of my skin using her products. Even strangers. Since she is in Seattle and I'm in NOLa I don't think it's possible but I wish it were! Again thank you Paula and thank you QVC for bringing us this line! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do a PC tsv!!! And please bring more of her wonderful products!
