Rated 4 out of 5 by EliE from Excellent retinol This is a great non irritating retinol for more sensitive skintypes, especially those who suffer from malassezia. There are no offending ingredients so no flare ups. This formulation is really moisturising, so much so that one doesn’t feel the need for a hydrating layer but I always use one - layering never feels greasy or too thick. This is a more gentle retinol so no peeling or dryness but I discern a subtle improvement in glow and smoothness. Would definitely repurchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nisk7188 from Love Somehow this retinol is super gentle whilst still being extremely efficient. Paula's Choice have outdone themselves! I currently use this product twice a week and have no irritation whatsoever. The texture of my skin has definitely improved and I will absolutely be repurchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShamJ from Amazing effective product! I was so sceptical about using Retinol and I heard about this product so I thought to give it a try. I am in my mid-30s and I can see that my skin is not the same as when I was in my 20s. Just after the first use I already saw a difference. My pores are tighter, my skin is not as dull, the pigmentation has reduced, my skin looks firmer. I use this product twice a week on a Sunday and a Wednesday and I can’t recommend it enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bella20 from Exceptional Another great product from Paula’s choice , fragrance free for many like me who have over the years developed sensitivity to unnecessary fragrance in skincare. The main advantage of this is the amount of retinol combined with Bakuchiol and peptides which make this a very tolerable retinol product compared to other retinol based products , that can be used every evening .

Rated 5 out of 5 by utereza from Mild treatment I bought it as a part of evening routine. I have aged, normal and sensible skin. I’ve never use retinol products before, so I started to use it slowly about 1-2 times a week. After 2 months I can say that it’s very mild treatment with nice smell. The skin looks smooth and hydrating. No irritation or redness. Now I use it 4-5 nights a week.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ASD from VERY mild I think this is okay if you're looking for a very mild retinol. I'm still not sold that bakuchiol offers anything to a routine as tests and evidence seem sparse. This worked well for my routine and didn't bring any irritation. Just not sure it did a lot else either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sam007 from Good retinol serum I’ve used this every second evening for a few weeks. My often sensitive skin hasn’t suffered any flaking or redness at all. Great for a first timer or for those needing a gentle yet effective retinol. I’ve found layering this with a vitamin C serum works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dalea33 from Excellent, effective product I have been using this treatment for about a month and am already seeing results that can only be due to this product. I apply the treatment every second night, before bed, and always use a 50+ sun block during the day. Fine lines already look so much better. Those little lines around the mouth are beginning to fade and there is some lessening on the forehead and crow's feet area. My skin also feels a bit firmer and looks brighter. I was a bit skeptical at first when I noticed the changes, thinking that maybe it was just wishful thinking on my part. However, I have examined the targeted areas in a variety of mirrors - and with unforgiving lighting. There is definitely a difference. I also think that the 0.3% retinol concentration is a good place to start for anyone with sensitive skin. I have had none of the problems that are sometimes associated with retinol use - no redness, flakiness, or irritation. I highly recommend this product for anyone thinking of starting a retinol skincare treatment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lin_da from Great retinol I am a huge fan of the retinol and recommended it to several friends. I never had any problems with flaky skin or other unpleasant reactions. And I do feel that it is quite effective. The only downside is the price point and the last two bottles I had oxidated quite fast. The shelve life of the PC retinol is quite short but I think that is normal for a retinol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsAB80 from Great Results This is my first use of a Retinol product and following Nadine baggots recomendation of this brand I gave it a go. I was concerned about potential side effects (even though the % is low) and am pleased to say that I haven't had any. I used it every other night for the first two weeks but am now using it every night. My skin feels fabulous and it has even helped with menstral breakouts. Great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andrea85 from Pricey but worth it I was sceptical about this product as I have used stronger things in the past but thought I would take a chance. After using every other night for a round a month, my skin is smoother and more even in appearance and the fine lines that were starting to appear on my forehead seem ever so slightly softened. Any old blemish marks have lightened up as well, an issue I always struggle with. I just wish it was a little bit cheaper/bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NikiJ7 from Radiant soft skin I bought this product during lockdown to cheer me up! Wanted something that would improve the visibility of my skin. After one month I have much smoother, softer complexion and a radiance. I’m very pleased indeed! I will definitely be ordering this again. The scent is very gentle, soft and slightly, sweet & fragrant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AHR from Great for sensitive skin but beware of silicones I've been trying to build my tolerance to retinol and I can actually use 1% once or twice a week now. I've been using this on the remaining nights or when my skin feels more sensitive or reactive and I want to scale back a bit. This is great for my sensitive skin and a good retinol starter product.The only con to this is that the second ingredient is silicone, which I could immediately tell because of the beautiful creamy texture. I don't avoid silicones at all costs (even though this might be too high up on the INCI list even for me) but this is something to be aware for those people who do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ashli123 from So far so good I only used this every couple of days as directed by the directions (it suggests building up usage from 3 times a week, to eventually every evening before bed), my skin did not tolerate any more frequent my than this. I followed up with a moisturizer as it did leave my face a little dry. I noticed an improvement in brightness and texture. My skin felt soft and looked a little more glowy. I did not notice a significant improvement in wrinkles or reduction in pores, but this would be more noticeable with long term and more frequent use. This product is fragrance free (thank goodness!!!!) and paraben free. For being an anti aging product, it was very tolerable. I’m pleased and
