SkinCeutical Retinol 0.5

Hello Lovelies. Are you excited for the weekend? I am! I had a very tumultuous, stressful week and I cannot wait for the weekend to charge my body with positive energy and to do some meditation.
I am also planning on pampering myself and part of that process is to deeply clean my skin and to apply a pea size of Retinol 0.5 before bedtime. As many of you know, retinol helps to fight the damage on the skin caused by sun exposure, also helps to improve elasticity and to reduce wrinkles. I have been using Retinol 0.5 from SkinCeutical and it is really effective. I have to confess that I had some reaction to the product because I didn't follow the applications instructions correctly. You really have to apply just a pea size of this product. Over applying this product might burn your skin and cause some peeling. Once I understood that less is more, I have noticed a big reduction on the size of my pores and more radiance on my skin. I haven't seen big improvement on my fine lines and wrinkles, but I guess that I have to let the product work for a little longer. Ah, please, please avoid the eye area completely while applying retinol since this can really irritate this sensitive area (ouch!)

So, for those of you who have not try retinol yet, I recommend giving it a try. You can find Retinol 0.5 on their website here or here
For the more experienced with this product, what are your opinions and have you seen good results? I would love to know.

Hasta Pronto!


  1. Thank you so much for sharing your very informative review on SkinCeutical Retinol 0.5. I remember I was prescribed something similar when I was in my early 20s to help treat a big acne breakout I had and it worked quite well. I'm glad to read that Retinol 0.5 is working for you. It sounds like a versatile and promising product. :)

    Thank you also for leaving a comment on my New Year's post. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer is definitely a consideration. I've used the one in light for years and I love it a lot. I'm quite sad it's running out though. May have to replace it soon.

    Hope your weekend was great. Take care. :)
