I have read some threads that you can get this without prescrip from some online PHARMS. Wow that is interesting. I have been using the one from NCN Pro Can someone help me out other than price what is the difference in this vs. the 0.1% gel from Alldaychemist? Is that an equivalent to the the NCN store? For those who have ordered from this online pharm any problems or suggestions?? Retin A has been one of my all time favs for skin care.

I'm sure that one at NCN is using retinol which is considered less effective than retin-a (tretinoin). Some have good results with retinols.
If you buy the tretinoin from allday, I HIGHLY advise to not start with the 0.1% strength.
Most find it too strong and prefer the .05%
From all I've read about it, you get no more long term anti-aging benefits from the 0.1% strength.

I am using the .1% all over from head to toe and though I was warned it was REALLy harsh it never even turned my skin red really. Yes my face is reddish but the rest of my body tolerates it well. I have to go slightly lighter on my neck by buffering it out but otherwise it has done a great job at reversing or starting to reverse damage I got from copper peptides and it has only been just over two weeks of use.

Peri is correct, at NCN you will only get retinols which are just cosmetic not really the strength of tretinoin which is what retin-a is composed of.

Bummer I wasted my money I suppose but it does seem to be a great moisturizer. I really want to try the retin-a from Allday. I want to do as Lexi and use it on my chest and arms also. The sun damage on my arms is just horrible. This stuff seems cheap enough to buy and use all over. I may buy several tubes in different strengths.

Eventhough it does not make me irritated, I will warn doing it on the body is very itchy! I have had to cover some areas in vaseline because I was so itchy and dry. It is getting better and my skin is looking MUCH better.

I really want to order from Alldaychemist but before I do, I have read that some folks get a lot of spam and some use the one time CC. What has been your experience with them?

What about using my CC should I go with the one time use CC. I have never bothered with those before.

Never spam from ADC--NEVER! They are very professional even if the site is a bit flimsy. I would use any cc just keep an eye on it after that is what I do. I have not had a problem and if you do you can call and dispute any fraudulent charges.

Thanks all for your advice and help. I have spent literally HOURS researching this company etc and feel pretty good about placing an order with them.

HI Goatlady
I have had some Viagra offers from ADC but no funny business with my USA CC *touch wood*
As stated, the 0.1% Retin-A is pretty strong and the 0.01% gel will peel the paint off your car. I use the 0.05% cream and it is plenty good enough!!

HTH

Just put in my order Fawnie. My skin is tough but I didn't take any chances I bought it in different percentages and yes even the 0.01% for really tough areas like age spots and my chest and arms. I got 2 tubes of the Taz also. I am SO excited to find this site and can't wait to start using it.

Good Goatlady!
I hope you are pleased with it!
Just a suggestion, even though your skin may be tough, test it on your arm before slathering it on your face!
The chest and neck are more sensitive than you may think. My chest was on FI-AH after I put Taz on it the first time. Mix it with moisturizer that doesn't have alcohol listed as one of the ingredients if you use a retinoid such as RA or Taz on those areas. Eucerin is one that is readily available.

Good luck and go slow with it!

I sure do as a matter of fact I am taking care of 2 orphaned goat kids. I have to bottle feed them 3 times a day. Their mother died a few days ago. It happens and comes with farming. I raise them mostly just for weed control and sell a few for breeding. They are fun

Weed control!! I like that!!
Q: Do you know what an Amish lawnmower is?
A: A sheep tied to a tree!

Not really a joke! My DH is from the Amish part of PA and I have seen this myself! It works and you just keep moving the sheep around to get the whole yard done apparently.

I am thinking of getting a couple alpaca as pets/weed control/hair providers for yarn. Do you know anything about them?

The people across the road have alpacas. I don't know anything about them but my doggy likes to taunt them and they play back with her.

Different parts of your body will also react differently. I use 0.1% RA on my forehead with no difficulty, 0.05% on the rest of my face and on my hands with no difficulty, but after several attempts even with buffering cannot seem to tolerate it on my neck and so have given up for awhile. The neck skin seems to be more sensitive, in my case anyway. So - proceed with caution! Good luck with it.
