Dr. Irwin's Review

Same great, high quality retinol from SkinMedica, but twice the concentration as the 0.25%.  This one is a 0.5%.  If you are new to retinols, start with the lower strength (0.25) twice a week, gradually build up to nightly, and then try going up to this one (0.5%).

If you are dry or sensitive, use retinoids OVER your moisturizer.

If you have very oily, acne prone, tough skin, you can start with this.

SkinTour's Philosophy:
Skincare is your best
One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
