    Paula's Choice - CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment

    Paula's Choice CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment Reviews

    Love it
    Very good product if you love retinol. I would recommend it.
    Gentle
    I used this PC 1% retinol for a few years, I really liked it as I didn't have too much reaction, my skin was smooth and clear, and I loved the smell. I have moved to something stronger now as I found I didn't get that much visible difference with my fine lines compared to stronger products that I use now.
    Gentler than expected
    I have been using retinol for about 3 years now and working up from low percentages from The Ordinary to this. I haven't experienced any redness, dryness or irritation, but have seen my skin looking healthy and clearer. I am using this to treat spots rather than wrinkles and think it is working well so far - definitely think it's more effective than the one I was using previously. The texture is really nice and a little goes a long way - I use 1 1/2 pumps to do my whole face, it absorbs quickly and plays nicely with other products.
    Lovely
    When you think about the price for 5ml it’s a lot but I personally use it as a night eye cream and we all know a standard 15ml eye cream seems to last forever so I am happy with the price. I am glad this isn’t a greasy product. My eyes are always plump and hydrated upon waking up. I might be mad but my fine lines around my eyes seem to be gone and smoothed out but predominantly for me being only 21 retinol is a long-term thing prevention thing. I might get the bigger size to test on my forehead as the texture doesn’t seem too thick that it would break me out and the fine lines on my forehead definitely need some TLC. I really love and trust Paula’s choice of products
    Good, but no obvious results
    I like it, good texture, absorbs quickly and well. Not sure if it is 1% retinol - I've been using it almost daily after starting off with using every other night. No reaction, no stinging. As for results - I have not seen any obvious improvements, and I've finished 1 bottle now. I may repurchase as I do like it overall and just hope the result is the delay of wrinkles, but for now will try couple other retinol products and see how that goes.
    Just ok
    This didn't do a single thing for me. Has a lovely texture and very pleasant to use, but I was expecting some reaction from this (flakiness to show it's working), particularly for such a high level of retinol. Didn't notice any visible difference either.
    My go to product
    This is my second bottle of Paula’s Choice Retinol and wow this product gives me results! You obviously need to start off using the product slowly (I know we all want results quick!) but don’t be tempted to use this every night until your skin gets used to the product. And importantly remember to use your SPF too! (You don’t want to reverse the good things Paula’s Choice Retinol does for your skin!)
    Good product
    I normally use retinoids as they are gentler and I occasionally tried some retinol products without committing to them. I've been using this for a few months now, not on a daily basis - my skin gets dry and flaky after a couple of consecutive uses at night time, so I alternate with a retinoid product. I have no complaints about it, it absorbs really well, no odd or bad smells that others here refer to and it's not as harsh as some other retinols I've used before at 1%. I like it.
    Неприятный серум
    Пахнет противно испорченной косметикой. Никакой отдушки у серума нет- есть запах протухшего масла. Да, серум весьма жирный. Действует ли вообще как-либо - вещь весьма спорная, но пользоваться приятных эмоций не вызывает. Не знаю даже за что 3* -за упаковку наверно....))) It smells of nasty spoiled cosmetics. There is no perfume in the serum; there is the smell of rotten oil. Yes, serum is very oily. Whether it works at all is a very controversial thing, but it does not cause pleasant emotions.
    The worst retinol ever
    I had high hopes for the retinol. Unfortunately, it triggered some redness on my neck( didn't put it there), my skin became very dry and completely broke my skin barrier. I have used many strong retinol creams without problems but this is not worth buying the full size, my mistake. I tried buffer but still looked dry and red like burned. Omg, so many unpleasant feeling about this cream. Even after 3 weeks still have dry skin and neck.
    Very Good Product
    Excellent. My skin is glowing
    The best
    Outstanding and safest retinol ever used. Gives so much glow highly recommended.
    Nice product
    I like it, does the job
    Disappointing
    To be honest I have fairly nice skin apart from melasma on my cheekbones and forehead, I don't suffer with breakouts and have wrinkles around my eyes and mouth. I'm 39 years old and i have sensitive skin. This is the first time I have ever tried retinol and purchased it to see if it would fade my melasma. I purchased my first bottle in October 2018 and used it for 7 months until summer returned. During this time I noticed the lines around my mouth were less noticeable but I stopped using the product throughout the sunniest months as I didn't want to make my melasma worse, I wear good high factor sun cream throughout summer and then started using the retinol again around October 2019. I have to say apart from the lines around my mouth this product has done nothing else, if anything i have very faint forehead wrinkles since using this, my melasma has always faded slightly throughout the colder months, I didn't notice any increase in the amount it faded while using retinol. I have a tiny bit left in the bottle and will use this up and then try a different retinol. It saddens me, I really wanted this to work.
    Great but not for me
    This is such a good product, but kept breaking me out. I have pretty congested pores, so I think it was probably purging, or maybe it was a bit oily, but I got through a whole bottle and it never changed. So I need to address my congestion/borderline acne with a different product I think. However, the formula is so high quality and has great ingredients. It goes on like a lotion, with a hint of oiliness which would be great for dry or mature skin. Despite the breakouts for me, the overall tone and discoloration improved. While I won't buy again, I think it could work wonders for dry, sensitive, mature skin that doesn't have underlying blemish/congestion/acne problems.
    Great Serum
    Been using this in the minis now for 6-7 months, it's definitely worth the price and a good quality serum!
    Five stars
    Very good product! Soothing and hydrating with the benefits of retinol! Would purchase again!
