the very best product you can buy
Comments about DHC Retino A Essence:
Better than prescription and wonderful results. Use it twice daily. Warch for pink healthy skin after a couple of weeks and tiny lines around eyes fade. Now deep forehead lines disappearing for me-be patient and consistent stent using this. It takes time to get rid of all those lld dull layers of skin If you can afford only one product, this is it. The high quality ingredients and dhc standards for their products are unsurpassed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fabulous for Eyes!
from Chesterland, Ohio
Great wrinkle minimizer! Easy to use every day under my eyes. It softens and smoothed my skin and then I apply my makeup. I LOVE this!!! I've been using it for years and will continue to use it !

I got a sample of this product and I was able to see the benefit of it from that small amount, which is unusual. That's why I decided to order more. I haven't had any reaction to it and it is a great retinol cream for regular treatments. I just wish it came in a large jar instead of the little tubes.

It feels like you have nothing on. Make skin definitely look smoother.

Improves skin texture!!
from Jersey City, NJ
I am nearly finished on my first order of Retino-A Essence. I bought the product looking for a firming product that can help my early-40s skin sag less, look brighter. I noticed results very early with this product. The rough texture that occurs as we begin to age was noticeably improved! In fact, I'm not sure any skin resurfacing product I've ever used has been as effective as Retino-A. I apply toner first and then use about a pea-size amount of the cream. The toner on the skin allows the cream to spread and absorb more easily. Without toner, I don't feel I get as good a result spreading the cream over my skin. The small size packaging may be a draw back to some, but I think the product stays fresher this way. One tube lasts me about 3-6 weeks, depending on how often I use it, which is usually morning and night, but sometimes I skip one or the other.It's a great value for the results, although sometimes it feels like you get very little product for the price. I would definitely stock up on this if it goes on sale.I started with DHC less than one year ago, and I have tried MANY brands, from drugstore brands to high-end brands, and Retino-A has delivered some of the best results yet. Thanks DHC!

I originally bought it for forehead but now just use it around my eyes. I love how it plumps and smooths the eye area. I follow up with a touch of the ceramide cream that I got in samples. The results are great!!!
No more embarrassing peeling!
from Pittsburgh Pa
I have used retin A products from a dermatologist and these caused a great deal of skin peeling similar to after a sunburn. DHC's product gives me great smoothing and is helping reduce fine lines and bumpy skin appearance on my forehead without any peeling. I love this product!

Deep lines around mouth less visible
By Rosie Real
from Seattle, WA
I'm nearly finished with my first package of Retino A Essence and I'm ordering more as now I don't want to go without it. After using the product for about a week, I'd noticed that the lines around my mouth and the "puppet" line below my mouth are less visible and even get better the longer I use it. The cream appears to puff the skin out similar to using a hyaluronic acid filler treatment.
