The Best Retinol Products for Acne-Prone Skin: 180K Reviews

Based on 179,902 Influenster Reviews

If you haven't heard of retinol, you're in for a treat. Retinol is a vitamin A derivative that unclogs pores, boosts collagen, and increases cell turnover. Basically, it's your anti-aging, anti-acne potion. Some skin is more sensitive to retinol, so different products contain different amounts of concentration. Start with a lower concentration if you have sensitive skin. As your skin gets used to it, you can try out a product with a greater percentage. Voila, beautiful skin!

Check out Influensters' picks for the best retinol products for acne-prone skin.

TLDR: This product is great even for young skin with little to no wrinkles. It helps clear up blemishes and evens/brightens tone. But it will make you photosensitive!

This stuff is a miracle worker and for the price? Incredible! I have extremely sensitive skin so I was looking for a retinol product that was way less potent than some formulas. This one does the trick. I am only 23 so I use this product for treating/preventing breakouts (Retinol is for wrinkle reduction but also is often prescribed by dermatologists to treat acne, especially adult acne!) and for age prevention. I've found with my sensitive skin, I don't use this every night. Only about 3 or 4 times a week, alternating nights on and off. My complexion is perfectly clear, and has become brighter and more even looking. I do feel a little tingling and burning even when I wait 20 minutes after cleansing to apply (don't apply directly after cleansing as damp skin will absorb the product too quickly and cause irritation) and I layer a light moisturizer under the product first. This also makes you EXTREMELY photo sensitive. I'm not kidding. Wear your sunscreen ladies. I was outside for 20 minutes with full cloud cover (it was raining!!) and I started to burn. So keep that in mind. If you can't be very mindful of sunscreen application, this product isn't for you. But I can say I saw immediate results in my complexion improving and even some softening of the few expression lines I have. ...read more

I am obsessed with this product.

I'm 25 years old, and I don't use this for wrinkles. I've actually been using this on deep acne scars hat I've had for a while now. I've only been using this for over a week now, and I see my scars slowly getting an even more surface with the rest of my skin! I would give it more time for me to give it a 5 stars though. But so far, it's the best serum I've used! ...read more

It's expensive but I have never had such awesome skin since I started using this. I have pretty oily skin normally but this has helped control it and has even helped keep my breakouts at bay. It has also given more a more even skin tone which I am not complaining about. It is a small bottle but a little bit goes A LONG way. ...read more

I use this cream every night and my face has never looked better. I mix a pea size amount with a few drops of a moisturizing serum at the end of my night time routine. I have found that may acne has cleared up and the texture of my skins has improved. I have repurchased 3 times and I will continue to do so. ...read more
