Rated 3.0 out of 5.0Â by mab4 How long does the burning and redness last?
Because this has retinol in it, I knew it would cause my face to be red, tight and dry. This is the usual beginning of the retinol process. I thought since this was over the counter, it would not be as strong as a prescription. I am wondering if I should just continue to plow through this burning and redness. Maybe there is the skin of my 20's under there somewhere? I have been using this for just over a week. Has anyone else had the same experience I am having but with good results? I can put up with the pain and dryness if this is truly going to make a difference to my skin. But if its not and I should switch to something else, I need to know that to.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by tealor77 Shocked by my skin's reaction to product.
I used this product one time, and my face and neck developed such redness, itching and heat as I could never imagine. I visited the dermatologist and got products and a prescription, but two days later it was worse. I had to have a cortisone dose-pak and it took about three days before I saw any results with that. I was shocked to have this reaction, because for a couple of years I had been using the Rapid Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer and did not get this reaction. I had also used intermittently, the Rapid Toner Repair Moisturizer, both of which, I believe, have retinol in them. I have been using your Healthy Defense Moisturizer for sensitive skin recently, and find it a very satisfactory replacement for the other moisturizers. I have to say I can't recommend this product because of my skin's reaction. Others may not have a problem with it.

My face is burned after two applications over three days. It is like a chemical burn.

This is a treatment for your skin which helps refresh and soften lines and wrinkles. I am 65 years old and have used this for about 8 months every night. I would not change to anything else, and believe me I have tried many!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Grateful777 It works!!
I've been using this for about three weeks and it is just incredible! I see and feel the difference in my crows feet and forehead lines. The clock has been dialed back at least 10 years so far. I feel NO burning, tingling, redness or flaking. Unfortunately, at 40, I am still plagued with acne and everything makes my face break out, even products which claim not to. This product has dramatically improved my acne as well. I could not be happier.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by ellem Caused terrible rash
I tried this for four days on my face and neck. The smell was heavenly and I really like the pump dispenser as opposed to a jar that so many other products use.
This product made my face tingle and feel sensitive, which is normal according to the directions and what I've read elsewhere. However, after four straight days of using this product, I developed a terrible rash with welts across my entire throat area. Using Benedryl and cortisone ointment, the rash faded after a few days. I still have redness and irritation on my throat. My skin is somewhat sensitive,but not terribly so. If you have sensitive skin, I would avoid this one.
