Product Review – PCA Skin Intensive Clarity Treatment®: 0.5% pure Retinol Night

13th March, 2018

PCA Skin Intensive Clarity Treatment®: 0.5% pure retinol night




I started using the retinol/ salicylic acne treatment to help with my breakouts as well as helping with my post inflammatory pigmentation from previous breakouts.

When I first started using this product I very slowly introduced it into my routine, I did this to reduce the chances of my skin peeling and becoming sensitize. Once I had started using this product every night my skin slowly started shedding more than it usually would which was expected from such a high grade retinol/ salicylic product.

Overnight I noticed that most of my spots had started to dry up and then eventually flake away, which was great as I didn’t have to worry about them becoming really red, inflamed or painful.

2 months after I started using this product I have noticed great differences in my skin, my hyperpigmention has started to fade as well as my skin clearing up. PCA truly has made a great night time  product for acne sufferers and I will definitely be getting another one of these products once mine has ran out.

I Love this product!

I found that I got the best results when applying a generous amount of the product to the whole face rather than trying to stretch a small amount of the product all over.

I would advise to apply the product at least 45 minutes before you go to bed this will reduce the chances of the product transferring on your pillow and into the sensitive eye area.
