How to use

Limit initial use to three times per week; gradually increase frequency to every other night, then finally each evening as tolerated. Apply a pea-sized amount amount after cleansing and toning. Carefully avoid the lips, eyes (including eyelids) and corners of the eyes. Can be used on the perimeter of the orbital bone if desired. To minimise irritation, try combining with 2-3 drops of Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster.

Note: Some people may experience a delayed sensitised reaction to 1% retinol. Do not assume that if no reaction is seen after a few applications that you can apply this product more frequently. Pay close attention to how your skin responds and adjust usage accordingly.

If sensitisation occurs (redness, flaking, tenderness, or drying of skin), reduce frequency of use or mix one pump of the Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment with your favourite Paula’s Choice serum or PM moisturiser. If sensitisation persists, discontinue use. Protect skin daily with sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater.

Nice product but needs to be used for quite some time before you see results.The packaging is horrid as you can't get all the product out as you near the end.I threw it away with at least two more nights use in it which I couldn't get out.Very disappointed as it isn't cheap.I have noticed that others have complained,hope you have fixed the problem Paula.

    I can't speak highly enough about this product, my skin glows, less fine lines, more even toned skin, make up even looks better now as my skin is less dry and more radiant. The only negative is when the bottle runs out. Take my word for it this product works. Love it better than air water and coffee

      I noticed immediate results. I have oily, sensitive and rosacea prone skin but this was brilliant. I did notice mild flaking (not noticeable to others) but I'm sure by either reducing the frequency or diluting with a moisturiser will suffice. Looking forward to seeing my skin change over the next few weeks and months. Will definitely repurchase.

        • Uneven Skin Tone

        I have tried many retinol products over the last 4 years and I always seem to keep coming back to this one. In terms of the amount of retionl and other beneficial ingredients there is not really anything else out on the market that holds a candle to this (unless you want to pay between $100 - $200). My skin tolerates use of this product daily, which has not been the case with some other 1% retinol products that I have tried. I would happily pay full price for this product.

          My friend bought me this as a gift. It's great. The best anti wrinkle I've tried. My skin definitely feels smoother and tighter with less wrinkles. I use mine every night. The bottle lasts me 3 months. I'm about to order myself a second bottle

            Comments about Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment - 30 ml:

            I'm onto my second bottle of this and it has changed my skin so much. I started using it because I was getting hormonal cystic acne as well as more moderate acne generally, and it has ameliorated my cysts so much I barely ever get them (only if i'm naughty and drunkenly fall asleep with silicone heavy primer on). It really does dramatically improve hyperpigmentation, acne, fine lines (not that i really have any) huge pores, skin plumpness and probably a ton of other problems i don't have. I haven't had problems with irritation once i got used to it, with the exception of if i put it on my neck, or if i use it with 2% bha then i get flaking so that it looks like my face is peeling off. I have very oily skin but it is pleasant as a moisturiser/treatment and doesn't seem too heavy. probably the only con is the price, but if you can get discounts then it's certainly comparable to also expensive prescription products. All up this is life changing if you have serious skin problems and i would definitely recommend the brand to everyone. even if they don't ask haha.

              Comments about Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment - 30 ml:

              This product is probably the strongest and most effective yet affordable beauty product that I have ever used. It took my skin about 12 months of persistent, steady use to tolerate it completely, but now I have got to the point where I can use it 5 times a week with no negative side effects. At first it caused my skin to become extremely dry, red and even sore in places and it caused my skin to flake and peel heavily. This stage in the process was not attractive!!! After that my skin began to purge and I developed a lot of raised bumps and blackheads, particularly on my forehead. However, I urge you to try this product and push past this tricky part!! Now that I am 12 months in, the transformation in my skin is truly incredible. As a 30 year old, my skin is beginning to show the signs of ageing, but this product has literally reversed that. The skin of my forehead is perfectly smooth and taut, fine lines have disappeared and skin discolouration on my cheeks has lessened to create a much more even skin tone. I know a lot of you have left negative reviews, but I am sure you are the ones that gave up on this product after only a couple of weeks or months. Keep going and I promise you will not regret it!

                  After reading the other feedback, I just wanted to let people know that I have had no reactions at all from this product. I find that it works well and since using the 1% retinol treatment, my skin has improved in texture and feel. I am about to purchase it for the 3rd time. Plus, it is great value when compared to other retinol products on the market.

                    Bought the travel sized bottle and have noticed a positive difference in skin texture, over the month I have used it.
                    I have dry sensitive skin and I have found no sensitivity problems using this product twice a week, and the BHA and AHA exfoliants on 1 0ther night per week. I am investing in a big tube today.
