Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I added this to my skin care as nothing else I tried seemed to be working. After four weeks my face is firmer, more evenly toned, the dark spots have faded and my 11s are definately less noticeable. This will always be in my skin care regime...love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Beauty Treatment for the Dollar I just love Paula's products. I use them in combination with other skin care products. I like how they are so affordable that adding them to my regular skincare routine doesn't break the bank. It takes what I'm already doing and notches it up a few levels. Buy her products! She could charge more, it's that good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy I found this treatment. I've always taken good care of my skin but I'm also always on the lookout for new skincare products. The world of skincare is always changing and new research has helped a great deal. I've never used a retinol product before this but OMGosh do I love this product. I was very lucky and had no sensitivity what so ever. My skin looks and feels amazing since I started using this treatment. My biggest problem was the size of my pores and this treatment has made such a huge deal. My pores are about half the size and I LOVE IT. I have added several other products from Paula's Choice since the results of this one have been so amazing. I really do like all the other products from her line and I'm still planning to add more. I just want to add them slowly in case I have any sensitivity, I'll know what product has caused it. I've been telling everyone how much I love Paula's Choice products. Even if you don't have any signs of aging, you should start using this retinol treatment. It will definitely keep the signs of aging at bay for a long time.

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.
