I used a couple of containers of this product and then switched to a different retinol product for a couple of years and am now back to using this again for more than a year now and am definitely seeing better results with this product without any irritation. It is definitely the best retinol product I have found for my skin and I use it every night without any problem. My skin looks terrific and I am 54.

Haven't been using it long but already see the difference. Used according to directions but I never had redness so began using it every night. retinol is definitely the way to go and wish I had used it years ago. Not my imagination; people have commented on how well my makeup looks. It's the same makeup but different anti-aging product. Noticeable glow. It is more expensive than some but it does have 1.0 retinol.

This lotion actually works! Review by Courtney

I have tried several anti-aging lotions and this is the only one that has actually made a visible difference in my skin. My skin has a nice glow, my wrinkles are smoothed (not completely gone, but better), and my pores (which had been really enlarged) are much less noticeable. Also, I had some age spots on my forehead and temples that are completely gone now. I only use one little pump a night for my whole face. I use it nightly now, but I would suggest only using it every other day at first because I did experience a little redness and peeling at the beginning. My only complaint is that it is a little pricey, but the bottle does seem to last a long time.

This is a wonderful product. I use it nightly with the eye product to keep my skin youthful. Not other moisturizer needed at night. With regular use my pores are smaller, skin more luminous and healthy looking. I get compliments on my skin frequently, even from my dermatologist. Wish there was more product in the container for the price.

dermadoctor has created such a lovely product in poetry in lotion. i need to share a bit of backgroud about my skin.i am 57 yrs and had been using retina ( prescription ) since 30 yrs of age, strickly as anti-aging due to over exposure to sun ( damage ) .

four years ago i had a fraxel repair procedure. within the first year i developed severe hyperpigmintation with outbreaks ( acne resembling but not acne) whenever my face exposed to any type of light: indoor,outdoor,lamp etc. even away from windows ( i apply sunblock as soon as i rise and through the day and at bedtime. must be a non absorbing and natural: zinc etc.- my skin must be densly covered at all times. before procedure i hadn't any concerns only some facial lines. so sorry i had the procedure!). over 3 thousand i ended spending on treatments for this "allergy to light". my life ( and budget has ) became severly limited.after extensive research i began using calm cool and corrected. amazing! over high cost brands this only one that worked. the only positive result from procedure was the reduction in line depth, but all was the same the following yr. after attemping other retinol products , all of which made my condition worse, i tired poetry in lotion rather believing it would cause more of a reaction etc. but i am able to use it every other day , applied very sparinginly and following directions perfectly. after several months i am beginning to notice some improvement regarding the lines and i THINK ( not sure yet! ) in a wee bit of sagging along jawline. i want to try the wrinkle revenge lift & replenish serum ( when budget permits!) but am grateful for these 2 products. thank you!

I am in my 50s and certainly spend more than my fair share of time in the sun in my teens and twenties. After two weeks of once a day use, my skin did appear tighter, although after using it for 2 months, I would not call it a miracle cream. You will definitely see a difference, however, don't expect lines to be less visible.

one of my medicine cabinet staples Review by Jeanne

I really love this product. I've used skinceutical's retinol 1.0 before, but I prefer this one. It doesn't dry me out, and there is no irritation whatsoever. I have oily/combination skin, with patches of dryness (even eczema, thank you allergies), but I tolerate this just fine and it really tackles those forehead lines and makes them disappear (along with a good night's sleep). I use different products in cycles, but this is one that's a must for my medicine cabinet, when I need it.

I have been using Poetry in Lotion for 1 year. My skin had red marks at first, but that was the product working as a peel on my 49-year-old skin's age spots. Now, my skin is beautiful and the spots are gone. I use Photodynamic during the day. Love DERMAdoctor products!

This is good stuff. The quality of my skin is so much better when I use this. It keeps monthly breakouts at bay, lightens dark spots, and just generally improves skin tone and wrinkles. And my skin has never been irritated in the slightest. It is pricy, but the bottle allows you to use only the necessary amount, with no waste. And it lasts a long time. I've been thinking of trying prescription strength retinol, but then I think, why? This is great already. How much better could that be?

I've been using this lotion for over a year now. I really like it, I see results with continued use and it is very gentle on my skin. Lines are less noticable (not as deep) on my forehead area and fine lines around my eyes have all but disappeared. Also, my skin looks smoother when I use the lotion. I would like to see the price come down, it is quite pricey and it is a product I would like to continue to use.

Best Retinol Lotion I've Found Review by Ann

I've had great results with Poetry in Lotion Intensive Retinol 1.0. It keeps my skin healthy looking without redness and flaking that I've experienced with other retinol products, even the low, low dose in the prescription a plastic surgeon gave me. I don't use it every day, just every other day. That is just right for my skin.

I noticed after a couple of weeks my skin seemed tighter and smoother. I am 44 and have spent a lot of time in the sun. People at work have even noticed and asked me what I was doing. Every time I look in the mirror I am shocked! I swear it took 10 years off my face.

I have bought this lotion 3 times now and have had pretty good results using it. I cannot use the stronger strength Retinol that dermatologist prescribe..my skin is sensitive and it makes my skin flakey and red. I am 60 years old but appear young for my age, most people guess me to be in my mid-40's..I have been blessed with good genes. I have spent a lot of time on the beach over the years and have exposed my face to a lot of sun. I have crows feet around my eyes from squinting (no sun glasses for years) and pretty deep frown lines on my forehead. This cream has lessened the degree of the lines on my forehead but they are definitely still there. I wouldn't call it a miracle cream but it has helped enough that I continue to buy it and use it daily. I feel that the cost is very high and agree that the cream doesn't last long enough. The company needs to either reduce the price of the product or package the cream in a larger container at the current price so that we don't have to buy it quite so often. More people would buy the product if it were more affordable and those of us that are buying it now would continue to buy it for years to come. At the price it is now being sold for, I for one will eventually replace the product with another more affordable product.

Excellent Stuff Review by Nikki

I purchased this at Ulta but was not happy with the cost of $75.00. I wouldn't mind paying that IF it lasted a while but it doesn't last long..........meaning it runs out fast. I only used it every morning not at night and it still ran out before a month was out. I figured, "gee, if I'm going to pay this much for this stuff, I might as well go to the dermatologist and get the prescription tube which lasts a very long time." I mean, the tube may cost me 90 dollars but it lasts and lasts with even better results. But I must say this product is the best I've ever used besides the prescription Retinol tube full strength. I'm 63 and it really made a huge difference in my skin. So if you want to purchase it, you won't be sorry but again, I'm into saving money on things that last longer than a month for a one time a day use. IF they lower the price, then I'll buy it regularly but not until they lower the cost.

This stuff is amazing. I'll never see my mid-70s again, and yet I get many compliments on my skin. Admittedly, I had a mother who was a stickler for caring for it constantly, particularly when it came to minimizing exposure to the sun. And I chose a career that keeps me out of doors. But Poetry in Lotion has handled those developing lines and keeps my skin smooth and clear. The best!!

It does work like everyone says but the cost is just too high for my taste. Gee, I can go to my dermatologist and get the real stuff and it works even better. If I'm going to pay this much, I might as well pay for the real thing. That's how I see it.

I just recently got this product at a department store and have been using it for almost 2 weeks now. I have very sensitive skin and common aging issues as well. This product does not irritate my skin but it does make my skin have a rosy pink look the day after, which is NOT a problem. I actually had someone comment on my skin today about how refreshed it looked. That just gave me affirmation that this product is true to its word! I will continue to use this product until it runs out and then I'll buy more! Thank you for creating such an awesome product even more me!

I started using this product just about a week ago. I apply it every other day like instructed (building up to daily) and I can tell you I was not expecting such noticable results in such a short time. I went to bed 40 something, with deep lines around my mouth, forehead and eyes and I woke with a 30 something face. My lines are all but gone and my skin feels soft, firm and bright. I use the eye cream twice a day and it's just as effective as the poetry in lotion. I don't know if my results are typical results, but I am really pleased with the product: it has boosted my confidence. For the record, I have sensative skin and I haven't had any problems using this product (as instructed). I would recommend it to anyone who wants to breath some youthful life into their complextion. I have tried several others, any they either did not work or caused some serious reactions and then I found this and now I can stop searching.

I love this product. I use it every night, and my skin has never felt this smooth and clear. My skin feels better now at age 33 then it ever did in my 20's or even my teens. I have sensitive skin, but this product does not bother me at all. I began using it every other night, but was easily able to start using it nightly. Great stuff.

Love it! Works great. I use it almost every night--sometimes I get peely & take a night off. My "lock" on the pump broke within a week, if you lock it, you can't re-open it. It is pricey... that's why I only gave it 4 stars. But, I will contnue to use it as long as I can afford it. I wish you'd cut the price & revise the packaging

My skin has never looked better. I'm 44, but since I've been using Poetry in Lotion, I barely think about my age when I look in the mirror. I've used this for about six months, so far, with 0 irritation from this serum, and much improvement in my skin's appearance. It's a dual-purpose retinol + moisturizer for me. I use Poetry in Lotion every night, and I experienced skin irritation only when I tried using it while using a 12% AHA during the day. I dropped the daytime AHA lotion, and began using Wrinkle Revenge 3 Cleanser instead, and my skin seemed to improve by the hour. All facial lines are plumped and smoothed, any minor breakout lasts one day, at the most, and my skin is even and radiant. I love Poetry in Lotion. My bedtime skincare routine has never been easier: Wrinkle Revenge 3 Cleanser, Wrinkle Revenge Eye Balm, and Poetry In Lotion.
