Not sure what the texture is supposed to be...

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about overnight retinol repair 1%:

When I first started using the product, it was thick and grainy. Then it became more like a lotion. Now it's watery. In addition, it did not seem to make any difference to my skin, except for slight dryness the first few days. This is the first Dermalogica product that I'm disappointed about,

Just horrid !!!

By 

from Newbury Park, Ca.

Comments about overnight retinol repair 1%:

The only age smart product I've used that did more damage than good. Product was grainy, watery, & scratched my face. Only had 11 applications in bottle even though I used sparingly. Product caused my bottom lip to break out in what looked like fever blisters. I will never ever purchase this product again.

soft skin

Comments about overnight retinol repair 1%:

Tried this last night and my skin feels so soft today. I just use it on my forehead, neck and chest because those are the only places I need it. So far, it feels great. Love the Buffer Cream too.

Decreased acne pigmentation and bumps

By 

from Illinois

Comments about overnight retinol repair 1%:

In addition to my current regimen, I use this nightly and have worked up to the full 1%. I avoid application on my neck since it still gets irritated and red easily. I have noticed a significant decrease in post breakout pigmentation, whiteheads, and blotchiness after about 2 weeks of use.

This retinol packs a punch

By 

from Pasadena, CA

Comments about overnight retinol repair 1%:

Love the customizable aspect of this product because you'll definitely need the buffer cream!

I was looking to step up my anti-aging game as I'm quickly approaching 30, so upgrading to the 1% was a no brainer. The instructions say to use 3 parts buffer cream to 1 part overnight retinol repair 1%, and I foolishly ignored them because I thought my skin could take the 1%. WRONG. Use the buffer cream as directed!

I've noticed that my skin feels a bit tight the morning after use, but on the third day after, it feels amazing. It's definitely made an impact on my acne as well.

  • Q:

    I've been using the product on its own and it seems like I am running through it very quickly. If I'm not mixing with moisturizer, how much should i use for each application? Not very happy with this product because of the limited use.

  • Q:

    Hi,
    I started using this product with the buffer cream, and was wandering what is the application instruction with other products that I have.
    For my night routine I have in order of use:
    - special cleansing Gel
    - multivitamin power firm (eyes and lines)
    - calm water gel OR antioxidant hydra mist (Is it required?)
    -overnight repair serum (is it required with the retinol?)
    - Retinol 1% + buffer cream
    Before the Retinol I had been using the Super Rich Repair for 2 years. It felt very heavy and I preferred the light feeling of the night Serum, but I guess that night moisturizers usually are
    Should I use he Retinol with all of the above?
    Should I use the Retinol every night as a regular product and if so skip the daily microfoliant altogether or also have moisturizer for every other night?
    I would go to a face mapping but I don't believe it is offered n my area (Portland OR)
    Thanks,
    Confused fan ...

      Hello Jill,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Retinol can cause some sensitization on the skin. Avoid exfoliation when using retinol. You can also try using the product every other night.

    I know this product contains 1% retinol and it is recommended to start with the 0.5% retinol. What will happen if I start directly with the 1% and use it less often? And if so, how often should I then use it?
