The Paula's Choice 1%
The Paula's Choice 1% Retinol Treatment Serum is one of few products that I have re-purchased several times. This retinol is strong enough to be very effective but contains enough skin soothing ingredients that it doesn't leave my skin feeling irritated. If you haven't used retinol before I recommend you start out very slowly- like every other day or even less if your skin starts to flake. The other option is to start out with a lower percentage retinol. The First Aid Beauty .25% Retinol FAB Skin Lab Concentrate is another great one to start out with to allow your skin to acclimate to retinol treatments. You can see my review of the First Aid Beauty .25% Retinol Serum at: https://youtu.be/8mkUaWGdt1I
I have read some reviews of the Paula's Choice Serum stating that it made their skin flake and dry but this has nothing to do with the brand- it is just that the percentage of retinol was just too much for them to start out with. I use this at night after cleansing and on top of a very light hydrating serum. I always apply a thick moisturizing cream over the retinol serum to keep my skin from becoming overly dry.
I love that Paula's Choice has done a great job protecting the serum from air and light. Retinol is extremely reactive to air and light exposure so you definitely want make sure the retinol you buy protects it from this exposure. This is also why you should use retinol at night and ALWAYS use sunscreen in the day time. The only "true" anti-aging product you can buy is sunscreen.
One more thing to love is that this serum is alcohol and fragrance free. It is also on the more affordable end of the spectrum and cruelty free to boot.

I couldn’t use it on wet skin but I can use over Cerave night cream (purple label). As long as I use over moisturized skin it does not irritate my dry sensitive skin. I use the Cerave gel oil on top. No dryness. Is this the best OTC retinol?
Hello! Actually I started using this product and after the first use I had irritations and redness especially on my forehead and cheeks, I didn’t use a moisturizer when I applied it so does it make a difference ? And is it possible to use salicylic acid moisturizer with retinol without problems ? Thank you
I just discovered PC a few months ago. I have been wanting to dive deeper in skincare but the "good stuff" seemed unattainable to me because it is all soo expensive like Drunk elephant and sunday riley. PC is pricey but in a way where I feel like I am getting what I pay for. I also love how many of her products come in a travel size.. I just bought this retinol 1% travel size and the super antioxidant serum with retinol(travel sz) I have never used retinol, so I figured I could use the serum first and then start introducing the 1%. I know that I should NOT use them together! How long do you think I should use the serum before trying the 1%? I plan on just using the 1% once a week, then twice a week. I am 27 and am just starting to be bothered by the fine lines above my eyebrows.. I must confess that I am a smoker... and I know that no cream will save my skin from smoke damage unless I quit.. I'm working on that. What types of products would you recommend for actually fading the appearance of fine lines?
I’ve been using this product for over a year on my neck and chest and do not see any difference. I will be changing my retinol product to Obagi for awhile and see how it goes in comparison. I have found Deciem’s NEC to be good as far as skin texture is concerned.
Can I use it with Timeless vitamin C ?
