Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 129.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the "Youngins" Who Think Aging Won't Happen Alas, I am 30 years old (never thought it would happen), and since about 27, I've noticed fine lines around my eyes, forehead, and "11's." I'm not going to lie- I've lived about 15 lives in my life, and have earned every fine line (was a crazy "youngin'") In addition, I've had purple acne scarring on my cheeks since I've been about 20. As I'm very fair, the spots show up purple, which has torn my self-confidence to shreds. Since using this item, in addition to the 2% BHA liquid, my acne scars have lightened by about 75% (will have to undergo laser, probably, to diminish them further); the fine lines have diminished, and, overall, I'm a happy girl. Just received the 2% BHA body treatment, and retinol skin-smoothing body treatment to use on my neck (tech-neck is real, y'all). Waiting on the AHA 8% gel exfoliant to see if it improves my skin further. Please try if you have my issues, and ladies, start young!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better Than PTR Been using PTR Night Fusion Retinol for years. But this is better and less expensive. notice smoother forehead lines and nose to mouth lines are softer. At 60 I'll take it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding This retinal has significantly changed the lines on my forehead. I am 41 and have the start of some pretty deep forehead lines. Using this for 6 months has been a game changer. I only use it in the areas I need and wow I can see radical differences. I have even used retinol products that Paula's Beutepedia recommends and yet this is the most effective. I value Paula and her company because they literally review thousands of products for us and do it for free and give high recommendations to many many lines and products. She knows what works and what dosnt and to be honest, I always check her website for a product before I buy it. Her recommendations work but her line excels above anything else. Esp this retinol. It is my understanding that many ingredients can help improve the look of wrinkles but noting can change them away except retinol and this product sure proves this!!!!

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!
