This product has worked wonders for my skin, but it’s been A HUGE LEARNING CURVE. The first few times I used this I didn’t know that it’s NOT recommended to use it with the protini moisturizer. Lord, did I burn the heck out of my face. At first I thought, this is just irritation because I’ve never used retinol before. The next time I used it was way too soon from the previous time, I still used protini AND the next morning I woke up and put a mask on for the next twelve hours (I’m a nurse). Everywhere the mask was - raw, burned skin. A trifecta of rookie mistakes. SO. I talked to an esthetician. I really wanted to be able to use this product. The reviews are great, and I’m thirty now. I want, no, I need, that amazing anti-aging effect! I started using this product by first applying a heavy duty moisturizer for sensitive skin, then applying the retinol cream, and avoiding protini (my absolute holy grail) until the following night. The next morning I use only the heavy duty moisturizer again after washing my face really well. I only use it on a night when I do not have to work the next day so I can avoid trapping residual product under a mask. I’m still using this product only weekly until I adjust a little more to the strength. I’m so pleased with my results! I get compliments on my clear skin. I’m often told there’s no way that I’m actually thirty. I’d recommend this, but I am taking away a star because of the time it took me to learn how to properly use this product.

I really do like this retinol cream. It is a bit too strong for me, so I have moved down to a lower strength of retinol. But this would make my skin sooo soft and glowy. But then my sensitive skin would react the next day :( Maybe I’ll try again in the future!

This is a solid retinol product. It’s pretty strong, so make sure to mix it with a hydrating gel or moisturizer. My anger lines on my eyebrow have faded almost completely and it’s healed my acne scars too. It’s pricey, but worth it. I use this every other day and a little goes along way.

This is the first and only retinoid product i have tried. It wad recommended to me as I was looking for something to not only help combat anti aging signs, but help with my uneven texture. My dermatologist recommended this and even only after using it for 4 weeks I already am noticing a difference in my skins texture. This retinoid also has ceramides in it which help rebuild the skins barrier which is cool. If you can afford it, I definately recommend.

I found this brand while searching for cruelty free and ‘clean’ skincare items. This is made without any essential oils, fragrance, silicones, sulfates, parabens etc. it also mixes well with other drunk elephant products. I like to use this with the Drunk Elephant Protini™ Polypeptide Cream and Drunk Elephant B Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel. I don’t like that this is in a tube form but I believe they’ve changed the packaging recently which should make it easier to use all of the product with less waste

Got this as a sample at Sephora, I think drunk elephant products are alright but certain not worth the price tag. This retinol cream was fine, felt tightening but I would not repurchase for full size due to price.

Great product to test the retinol waters with—IF you follow the directions. There are definitely more affordable vitamin A (retinol) options out there, so you’re paying for the Drunk Elephant brand to a large degree, but I did enjoy the product and see results over the long-term. Plus, because I used as directed, it lasted me about 6 months!

I like this product but you definitely have to start slowly when introducing it or else it might cause some irritation to your skin. I found this product kept my skin looking nice. I found I can only use this one to two times a week. I got a sample of this with one of my Sephora orders and ended up ordering the full size so I could decide if this product was for me or not. It’s on the pricey side but definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for a product like this. [product:drunk-elephant-a-passioni-retinol-cream]
