I have used Green Cream all the way up to 9. Now I'm just using 6 because of the colder weather.

I would like to get some retin a micro; I hear it is much more gentle on the skin.

I have a lot of lines/crepiness under the eyes and this is my main concern.

Which strength would you recommend? Any other product?

I would start with the .04% Use it every other day at first and work your way up to using it every night.

Thanks. Looking forward to trying it.

Did you get "the uglies" at all?

Would you recommend anything used with Retin A?

Thanks again.

I only got the uglies under my eyes, but I find it has helped my under eye area you just have to give it a while to get past that phase. As long as your skin can tolerate it I would not put anything on over the Retin A, I don't. If you find your skin is too dry you could put a cream or oil over it after waiting at least an hour.

I loved Green Cream 9. It's on my favorite product list (there are probably 5 or 6 items on that list). I would give it a go again when I rotate products around. I had quicker results than with Retin A.
