This is recommended, but with some warnings. If you have never used a retinol product before and especially at this concentration, it is highly advised that you start at the lowest level and gradually work your way up as your skin gets used to it. It should be applied at night. Some form of skin protection is needed during the day. Ignoring this will increase the chances of redness and peeling of the skin. This is very potent stuff.
The packaging is excellent for providing a measured dose of the cream without exposing it to air. It is a heavy duty bottle that will look elegant in a bathroom. The scent reminds me a little of cinnamon (maybe it is just me.) The dosage, though small, will be enough for the entire face. My skin feels smooth upon application - and throughout the night. Skin looks plumper and with reduced acne scarring. (Cannot verify for wrinkles yet.)
It is very expensive and can usually be found either online or the doctor's office, but it works well.
