I've used retinol in high concentrations from the dermatologist before and it met with disasterous results. This cream, while having a decent % of retinol, does not dry out or irritate my skin at all. After about 3 weeks of continued use (except on nights after microdermabrasion or peels) I could not believe the difference in my pore size and skin texture. Just really amazed me. I strongly suggest using a moisturizer with this product and only use at night. Will continue to use faithfully.

I purchased this after reading reviews on a few different websites. I've been using it for over a month now and my acne is much worse than when I began using this product. I have also seen no difference in the fine lines and pores on my face.

    I wanted to ease into using Retinol-type products and this one is excellent. No irritation and after using it the very first time I received compliments on my skin the next day. My skin is dry with visible hyperpigmentation. This makes my skin feel refreshed and brighter.

      Comments about philosophy help me retinol night treatment, 1.05 oz:

      First, let me address those who complain about having breakouts after first starting to use this product. When you start using a retinol treatment, this is a common reaction. Retinol helps to purge your skin of impurities, which it does by causing cell turnover to speed up and increase. This will very often result in your skin breaking out at first in a very major way. After a few weeks of daily use, however, this will stop if you can tolerate the product, and if you are taking proper care of your skin. You simply have to tough it out and let the product do its job.

      I've been using Help Me Retinol for about 3 weeks now. I'm still in the breakout phase, however I have seen a major reduction in my laugh lines (fine creases around my mouth). They've all but disappeared already, which makes me exceedingly happy! The only negative I have to say about this product is that it does have a slight odor that is unpleasant, and my fiance has commented that if he kisses my face after I've put it on, it makes his lips taste horrible.

        I read the reviews and decided to give this product a try. I use it after washing my face at night, before a night cream. I'd been using just the night cream, but the addition of this underneath has improved the texture and feel of my skin significantly.

        I've used other Philosophy products and tend to pick and choose among the skin care line. This one appears to be a keeper.

            I have only been using this product for a few weeks. I started very slowly like the company recommends. It is not helping with my oily/acne prone face but it is improving the texture of my skin. I notice my skin is softer. I am noticing a very small difference with my fine lines but I am sure I need to use it longer before I see more of a difference. I will continue to use this product. I was really hoping it would help control oil but I think I might need a doctor's prescription for a stronger strength. I am 45 years old with very oily/acne prone and aging skin.

              Am using product for almost a week. Skin is much smoother and pores smaller. Haven't really noticed any wrinkle reduction yet, but I think that's too soon. Was battling with adult breakout and haven't had any since I started with this product.

                Comments about philosophy help me retinol night treatment, 1.05 oz:

                Use it every other night, and ladies, if it's drying to you, you can put moisturizer on top. I wash my face, apply the Help Me, watch a little tv, and then about an hour or two later put moisturizer on top of it (when hope is not enough) and go to bed. Voila, great treatment.
                This is really wonderful and I wish I'd tried it sooner. I have some stubborn spots not even the dermatoligist was sure what to do with. Using this for a couple weeks, they are gone.
                I have mature skin, dry and roscea on cheeks, and uneven. But not any more. I will continue to purchase this product.

                    My skin is not sensitive at all. However after using this product a few time it became really irrateted and dry. I would not recommend this product. There are other retinol products out there that do the job and are not as harsh on your skin.

                      Comments about philosophy help me retinol night treatment, 1.05 oz:

                      I noticed results in one or two applications: smaller pores, minimized fine lines, skin looks brighter and clearer. I have oily skin, am 47, with a bit of sun damage. Only con is that I noticed some tenderness in the skin around my eyes when touching or rubbing it a day after use. I use this product about 4 or 5 nights a week before bed and am totally satisfied, and I would not normally pay so much for a skin product. I gifted a tube to my mom (age 69) and she likes it but finds it too drying in winter--so beware of that if you have dry skin.
