Immediately effective

By 

from Washington, DC

Comments about overnight retinol repair:

I never review products--mostly because everything I buy from Dermalogica is great--but I had to make an exception for this product. I have normal, healthy skin, but for months I have had two spots that never came to the surface (papules or something like that). I have tried numerous things to get rid of them: exfoliation several times/week, facials, creams to draw out the impurities, and nothing worked. They're not really visible, so I didn't really pay it any mind, but did wonder if I should just go to the dermatologist for cortisone or something. I used this retinol product--no exaggeration--two nights and they're gone. Two nights! I can't wait to see what my skin looks like after weeks of use!

Overnight retinol repair

By 

from Castro Valley, CA

Comments about overnight retinol repair:

I bought this product 3 months ago. I love it! It is gentle on my sick, it helps so much with breakouts, fine lines and it doesn't dry your skin out like prescription retinol does. I use it every night after I was my face and before I put on my nightly creams.

I would highly recommend this product. This is a "I can't do without" treatment.

Pleased with the results

By 

from Washington State

Verified Buyer

Comments about overnight retinol repair:

I have only been using the product for about 10 days which is why I didn't give it 5 stars. No miracles yet, but I have noticed some improvements in this short of a time frame. I noticed some tightness in my skin that I hadn't realized needed tightening. Some lines are less defined. No one is going to say "wow, you look 10 years younger", but for now, it's about how *I* feel when I look in the mirror :-) and I am pleased with the results from this product.
When I first started using it, I used the buffer cream and the retinol about 1 to 1. I had some drying of my skin around my mouth/nose. But that seems to have now resolved.

I Like it, not sure I love it.

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about overnight retinol repair:

Only used it two weeks but can't say this is as good as the Multivitamin Power Serum. Not sure that I like having to add the buffer… not sure I am creating the correct balance between the product and the buffer creme.
Long term, should it work I'll love it and be back for more!

    • Q:

      What are the effects if I can't avoid direct sunlight?: I'm in my mid-thirties and have had expression lines on my forehead since my teens. I'd like to start using a retinol but in a few weeks I start a new job where I'll be working outside all summer. I plan on wearing sunscreen every day and a sun hat when possible, but what are the effects of being in direct sunlight while using this product?
      Asked on 5/20/2016 by Alo617 from United States

      • A:

        Retinol makes the skin much more likely to damage skin, defeating the purpose of protecting the skin in the first place. Worry not, using the overnight retinol repair only at night will give you optimal results and reduce the chances of damaging your skin.

        Answered on 10/8/2016 by Janiene from Atlanta, GA
      • A:

        Hello,

        Thank you for your question. If you use the Overnight Retinol Repair at night only, and use a SPF during the day, you should not have any problems. Please reapply the SPF every couple of hours and be sure to wear a hat.

        Kind Regards,
