Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revives my skin! I was offered a sample of this in store one day, tried it a few times and loved it. The Mecca staff member recommended I use a pea sized amount, mix it with the Drunk Elephant Marula Oil (which I already have and love) and apply at night. I feel like it completely revives my skin! My skin is softer, clearer and brighter. I absolutely love it and look forward to Friday nights when I use it! This has become a staple in my skincare regime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality... just have to wait for results I had never used a retinol product before so after much research, i purchased the a-passioni. I eased into it and now use the product twice a week, otherwise it is very irritating. After one month, i had seen no change in my skin and was pretty disappointed. Now, three months into use, my skin is clearer, i have no breakouts and the lines on my forehead have diminished. I would recommend this product - just don't expect results overnight, a glycolic product is better for that

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ouchy! I got this product as a sample and was really excited to try it out. I have never had any issues with retinol products but this one gave me pain. I had put this cream under my eyes and on my forehead. My under eyes felt like they had been badly sunburned and they were itchy and stung. My forehead also had blisters. My skin has never been sensitive so this was a bit of a shocker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new holy grail!! I bought this when it first came out, it’s the only retinol product I have ever used and will now only ever need to use! I had quiet severe acne and this product has been working wonders on my skin. It’s not a overnight instant product, I use it every second day and though the first month there wasn’t a noticeable change that others could see I could feel all the deeper acne and cysts moving to the surface and disappearing. Now after a couple of months use I hardly breakout, my skin is soft and smooth and I finally feel comfortable stepping out of the house without make up. If your willing to be patient and follow the instructions that come with it, you will love the results like I do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The real deal I’d been off retinol and trying a retinoid oil but not really feeling it. I got this to give my skin a refresh. It’s very good, concentration is high though so remember to BE PATIENT with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product I picked up this retinol looking for a product that would have rapid skin turn over. This was exactly what I wanted. Made me peel after about four days and using and the skin was replaced with brand new skin. Blemishes had increased. Looking forward to continually using this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most transformative product I've ever used I love DE and bought this the day it came out. Even though I had used retinol previously, I followed the instructions and slowly incorporated it into my routine. I started off at twice a week, then every second night and then every night. It's a strong product! The difference in my skin is phenomenal. I've never used a product that has delivered such incredible results. My skin is smooth and plump. I experienced no irritation or peeling from using this product, and I think the trick is to build up to nightly use and mix it with a hydrating product. I will continue to buy this again and a again.

can you use this with roacttane in your system?

Asked by: mbbbbbb
I have rosacea and while I no longer take Roaccutane for rosacea management, I have found the product with light use has helped repair rosacea damage. I have used it every other day as I find retinol daily doesn't work for me but it's been the right amount.

I used the sample of this product I received in my beauty box. 2-3 days later my under eye area looks super wrinkly when I smile and feels very dry. I know I was supposed to avoid this area but I didn’t know this at the time. How do I fix this?

Asked by: LORH
Try a vitamin c eye cream with hydrating benefits.

Is a moisturiser required on top of this?

Asked by: Pixiej07
Always use a moisturiser with it - always! Unless you want to burn

Is this product (or any retinol) suitable for sensitive skin? 

Asked by: SalJ
I’ve found the Dr Dennis Gross retinol eye serum fine for sensitive skin all over the face. Expensive for that use, but it is fine with no extra sensitivity, irritation, stinging, peeling, or any issues whatsoever. DE seems (is) far far stronger in comparison. 2 days after first application I experienced stinging all over (even with water), redness, and peeling, especially on upper cheekbone zone. Needed to let skin recover for a week. Using DE 5 days apart currently works for me (minimal very temporary to no stinging), mixing with my usual volume of night moisturiser which already has a touch of retinol. I had already been using Neutrogena night retinol and other retinol products. DE retinol also seems to play very nicely with a c e ferulic serum from PT Roth.

I’ve used this product for the first time, and my skin is peeling and red. Should I be concerned? Can I use anything to ease the discomfort?

Asked by: Odelle
If you haven't used Retinols before you may be using it too much too soon. It is normal for skin to go through a purging stage when the skin will look much older and worse than before and peel. You have to stick with it and you will come through it with a new glowing face. If you're at the stage where you're feeling real discomfort, redness and/or peeling I'd suggest cutting back and healing. You need to love on the skin with gentle moisturising and soothing products. Use The Ordinary's Squalene for example. No Rose hip oil, it has vitamin A in it (Retinol) Are you making sure to wash the Retinol off in the morning and using an SPF 50 daily? Once you heel I suggest you use it perhaps 1-3 times a week. You can use a moisturiser on top but wait at least 20 minutes for the Retinol to sink into the skin. Hope this helps.

Can this be used on alternate nights with the DE TLC Framboos Glycolic Serum or will that be too much for the skin?

Asked by: TashWaqas
Yes, the box even suggests mixing the two together (which is what I've been doing twice a week)

Can I use this if I’m pregnant or nursing? 

Asked by: eliz555
Unfortunately not due to the high content of vitamin A which can be released into the bloodstream.
