Can I ask where you are buying it from? I was getting it from E-bay but the sellers have all seem to have been stopped from selling it.

Try Geoffs pharmacy (sorry don't know how to do links)

Thanks. They are out of stock at the moment but I will keep checking.

Is this the type of cream you're looking for?

If you search 'retin' on eBay there's a large variety of products to choose from.

Are you talking about tretinoin? It is much stronger than retinol and usually requires a prescription. Tretinoin is the active ingredient in Retin-A.

I live in the US, and I order mine from Canada, as it costs less there than here. But it does require a prescription.

If I were in the UK, and had a kindly GP, I would ask him/her for an Rx, or I might go to a private cosmetic dermatologist one-time for an Rx with a bunch of refills. Then, since the NHS prob wouldn't cover it, I would order it from Canada or see what it costs in cash where you are.

I read on another thread someone got theirs form United pharmacies
