Choosing your Retinol: If you’re new to Retinol, it’s been a while or you can’t remember what percentage of Retinol you’ve used previously start with a 0.5% strength; either Potent Retinol Serum or Retinoic Oil - the Oil is a better choice for dry and/or sensitive skin. If you’ve already been using a prescription or clinical strength Retinol go for the big-guns in Retinol Concentrate.
