I think I saw something on a thread a while ago about am effective inexpensive low strength retinol cream which people were recommending from Ebay or Amazon? Can anybody refresh my memory?

Or any other recommendations please?

ROC Wrinkle Filler is FAB. And you might not need to use it every day.

Retinol or Retin-A?

Retinol, I think. Don't you need a prescription for Retin A?

Not if you buy it off amazon <whistles innocently>

Well, when you've finished bf give it a go.

I always wondered about it and dismissed it as too strong, mainly because topical treatments such as benzoyl peroxide and antibiotics made my skin red raw.

I've followed the instructions to the letter and apart from a few red raised bumps on my nose and chin I haven't had any bad side effects. I started on 0.025% every other night and now I'm on 0.05% every night.

It takes six months to really work so by my birthday I should be peachy!.
