The product is used on alternate nights under night cream. Retinol (Vitamin A) is a very efficient wrinkle smoother and is obviously targetted at ladies passed their first youth. The product can be rather drying (hence the use under a night cream) and can also sting. A very small quantity only is sufficient - about the size of a pea and frequency of use adapted to how the skin reacts (daily use only if there is no stinging or redness.
I use this product every night after thoroughly cleansing my face. Retinol is a known wrinkle fighter and I would recommend it to those of us who are no longer very young. It can be drying, however, so should be used sparingly to begin with and perhaps not every day to see how the skin reacts. I use a rich nourishing cream on top of it. The results have been excellent.
