Would they both achieve the same goal with the HQ4%? The 1% is a bit more expensive on the website I was given to shop on.
Were are you getting yours for 3 dollars/tube?I use .1% gel and bought a ton of it at 3 dollars a tube! It is far too strong though. I prefer the .05% cream. My skin does not peel too much nor get irritated too bad it is just constantly reddish and ruddy looking which makes it hard to not use make-up and I do not like having to wear make-up constantly.
Yeah, I just use a drop from my faucet so I have enough to apply an even layer on my skin.Oh, wow. I wish I had seen this before I ordered 5 tubes. I didn't know we could mix it with a bit of water.
When and if I peel from my RA I use a microfiber exfoliating cloth to remove what I can. This seems to help a lot, especially if you need to apply makeup.Glad I saw this thread, as I think it is an appropriate thread to ask how do the ladies get around the peeling with Retin A. Especially, if you work with the public, or you are around people for extended amounts of time. What do you do to get around that? I know when I started peeling, I was very self-conscious about this.
Also, the diluting Retin with water, now I am majorly confused..lol! I remember Ondine kept saying that you should wait at least 20 mins after washing before applying Retin A, and it needed to be applied to dry skin. Hmmm, didn't know you could wet it and apply it as well.
