Okay retin a totally settled my skin down (no pimples at all) and made it very smooth. It got rid of a small brownish coloured spot on my cheek. It definitely has reduced the size of my pores on my nose. It has helped with my crows feet and fine lines near my mouth.
However, I don't think it has had a major impact on my 11s and I am not be able to use it on my top lip. It agitates the the delicate skin near my top lip, so I avoid applying it in this area.
Over all though I am very happy with the results and honestly think it's been my best beauty buy.
Does it help with wrinkles, i have one deep ish frown between my forehaed, i always try to wear a fringe to cover it, otherwise i am not too wrinkly but a tad lack of elacticity, almost 50 Yikes. What does it really help with?
To risk sounding stupid what are the n11s? I had forgotton all about retin a, it was so big when i lived in the States in the 90s everybody was using it. Im sorry i did not start then. I am tad worried about the side effects, the peeling and irratation that follows and it can take up to a year to see results. I was just watching a Youtuve clip on it. I think i will try it too as it not expesnive. My new year resolution to myslef was, not spending anymore money on things that i cannot afford and that do not work. I am a sucker for make up product and shampoos.
Not interested in going down the botox route but thanks. Just a bit worried about buying from ebay although thanks for that sellers name. I am not a novice at buying things from ebay. I have bought many creams [boots protect and perfect] but with Retin A, i am a bit cautious. worry about the contents not being what they say so would rather buy from the UK? Is there anywhere that sells it online over here?
