Hey guys,

I'm new here and wanted to ask a couple of questions about the above product.

I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and at first it seemed to work wonders and now it seems to be making my fine lines look even worse. Is this the "uglies" stage and if so how long should it last? I'm using the product once a day, in the evenings and following about 1 1/2 hours later with a small amount of moisturising eye cream as I was told to by friends. Is this right?

Thank you in advance for any help!

Miss Betty Cool

Hi Betty,
What kind of "uglies" are you talking about? I used this for awhile too and I also thought my under eye wrinkles looked worse.

Eventually, I stopped using it. No improvements for me.

I used this product for a while, but it didn't do much for me. I stopped using it.

I 3rd Kims and Blaze. I used this stuff too, and it didn't do anything for me. It is pretty harsh in my opinion, as well, for under the eye area. I definitely think you are doing right by applying a moisturizer on top of the product after your wait time.

By "uglies" I mean eccentuated lines - apparently you get this when you first start using a retinol. I was just wondering if any of the people experienced in using retin A could give me some advice as to how long the wait is before the improvement...as I' impatient!! Very Happy

Well, Retinol is very different than Retin A and you wouldn't get near the "uglies" with a retinol product that people get with Retin A. I would say a few weeks tops in my opinion for an over the counter retinol product for the dryness to go away. If it doesn't, I would back off the product to every other night.
