What makes this product unique?
Combined with potent antioxidants, Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment is specially formulated to smooth and firm skin by helping to boost healthy cell regeneration and stimulate collagen production. Its light, silky texture absorbs quickly and goes to work immediately to refine pore size as it reduces deep wrinkles, fine lines, and brown spots. Also excellent for reducing breakouts. Licorice, oat extract and other anti-irritants help to minimize the irritation some people may experience from products containing high amounts of retinol. You’ll be amazed at how much younger and radiant your skin will look and feel.

A consumer panel test showed that 92% of users preferred this retinol product over other, similar products they’ve used.

Who is this product for?
Those looking for a more potent retinol treatment designed to preserve young skin and repair more advanced signs of aging, including deep wrinkles, loss of firmness, and brown spots. In addition, CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment will help prevent blemishes and correct red marks from past breakouts, so it's wonderful for those dealing with breakouts and advanced signs of aging.

When first using, apply no more than three times per week, at night. Increase frequency to every other night and, finally, every evening as tolerated. Apply a pea-sized amount after cleansing and toning. Avoid the lips, direct contact with the eye, and corners of the eyes. You may apply up to the orbital bone of the eye area. For best results and to reduce the risk of irritation, it is best when used with our cleanser, toner, serum, and daytime and nighttime moisturizers.

If irritation occurs, reduce frequency of use or mix one pump of this retinol treatment with your favorite Paula’s Choice serum or moisturizer. If irritation persists, discontinue use. Protect skin daily with sunscreen rated SPF 25 or greater, or layer sunscreens (moisturizer, foundation with sunscreen, and pressed powder with sunscreen) if they are all rated SPF 15 or greater (and greater is better).

May be applied at the same time as your AHA or BHA exfoliant, but pay attention to how your skin responds. If you notice signs of irritation, apply your exfoliant in the morning and this treatment at night or reduce frequency of application of this retinol treatment.

    Comments about Paula's Choice CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment, 1 oz:

    I received this product free from BzzAgent to try and review. And Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment has definitely improved my skin tone. I still use it every other day, but plan on making it a part of my daily skin care routine. I find that the fine lines have decreased, and the wrinkles are less noticeable. My face overall feels firmer and more radiant. I wear less make-up now because I see my skin has been improving, and I feel I have less to hide. I did notice the first few times I used this product I went too close to my eye area, and did experience some sensitivity to sun and sweat. But I would definitely recommend this to friends.

      I have been using Paula's Choice Retinol Treatment for two years and my
      60 year old skin is smooth and firm. I apply it every night with a light moisturizer over it. If you haven't used a retinol product before,I would suggest starting out slowly, maybe 2 or 3 times per week to avoid irritation. Stick with it and you'll have great results.

          I have been using Paula's Choice Retinol Treatment for two years and my skin looks healthy and firm. Retinol is one of a few products that actually improves skin. If you haven't used a retinol product before, you may want to start gradually to avoid irritation. Stick with it and you'll have great results.

            I have been using this product three times a week since mid-January 2016 and am still on the same bottle. I mix it with my night-time moisturizer, Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer. I also using a 10% AHA once weekly to combat any flaking - which has been very minimal. My skin is smoother and younger looking. I have a deep furrow between my eyebrows that is now almost completely smoothed out. I have rosacea and have had no problems with redness using this treatment. I use a lower strength retinol serum from Paula's Choice with my morning routine and on nights that I am not using the CLINICAL 1%. I will definitely repurchase this product.

            After one month of using this my skin tone is more even. I have sensitive skin and this does not bother me as long as I only use it every other day.

              Comments about Paula's Choice CLINICAL 1% Retinol Treatment, 1 oz:

              For years I've been on and off of prescription Retin-A and Renova, etc. My insurance doesn't cover the product, even though I've had bouts of skin cancer and these supposedly help shed damaged skin to avoid future problems ... The prescription is very expensive, out of pocket. So -- I was very happy to read about Paula's Choice Clinical Retinol treatment.

              Not only does it work as well -- or even better than my old prescription Retin-A, it is gentler and doesn't irritate my sensitive, freckled skin. I love that it's gentle, and love that my skin is all the better for it. And I LOVE that it's half the cost of my prescription products and available here. Thank you!

                Have owned this product for a few weeks and use about twice a week. I have pretty sensitive skin that reacts to many products. As long as it's not used too often, it's fine for my sensitive skin. Have definitely seen an improvement in acne scars and texture, which is saying a lot for me personally. Have nothing bad to say about this product and always recommend to clients and friends.
