Apply a pea size amount at night, rinse off in the morning. Applying anything over it will decrease the strength (buffer it).

I leave it in all night and I add moisturiser with it just to be safe because I have sensitive skin and I'm scared if blotchy skin.

@Titi Hey, what’s wrong with adding moisturizer on top? Retin-A is extremely harsh for a lot of people. And it sounds as if @mur is new to it. I know personally, If I didn’t add something on top, I’d wake up to super irritated and extra dry skin. With moisturizer, I still had micro peeling but it wasn’t irritated.
You have three possibilities if it is too potent:

- you apply it 15mn after the bath
- you use a half of pea size
- you decrease the strenght 0,01 to 0,005 or to 0,0025

You can endly switch to the Retinol.
Anyway if you're satisfy by you method, it.s also good

You can leave it on all night. I would start with a lower dose though like @Titi said .025 or .05 at the most-- retin A takes a bit of time to get used to.

Hi guys, can I use my retin A and IKB gel on alternative days, or is it better to use the gel for a week then retin A for a week? Since IKB gel is alpha arbutin based will it convert to HQ?
