I have decided to splash and test out Retin-A for fine lines. I think I need to go for a weaker version - a 0.025 percent in creme maybe. Anyone can tell me where I can buy it?

Hi Artyk,

First off, you will need a prescription for the Retin A Micro. Then you can go to canadadrugsuperstore.com and order a tube for around $35 or so less shipping. I have sensitive skin and use the 0.01 percent myself and have no problems. I have been ordering my Retin A Micro off this site for almost 4 years and have had no problems with the product/product potency or customer service. I, however would be wary of other online pharmacies offering this or any other comparable product at ridiculously low prices or allow you to order without a prescription.

Hope this helped!

A lot of us order our Retin-A from All Day Chemist. They have awesome prices, great products and good customer service. They do not require a prescription for Retin-A. I have ordered 3 times from them now and have had no problems at all.

Emily, under what product name should I look for Retin-A in AllChemist.com? I looked for Retin but found nothing...

I've heard of people on here ordering from All Day Chemist and have expressed my opinion and concern on another thread. Noooooot sure I would trust the purity or potency of an online pharmacy that offers a medication without a prescription, number one and number two for the price they are offering a tube of Retin A at $3.25 also raises a red flag to me. For those that say they've ordered off there and have had no problems, well how would they know if they are getting full potency or if the product is old, or even been tampered with.

To better illustrate my take on this I would like to tell you about Paul Mitchell products (I also posted this info on the other thread I spoke of earlier). I was a rep for Paul Mitchell products and we had to pass out literature and dvd's to our salon clients to urge them to tell their clients to only buy our products from salons. That the Paul Mitchell you find in drug stores and places like Target are all bought from the black market. (Paul Mitchell himself broadcasted commercials back in 2005 regarding this issue, warning the public) Paul Mitchell actually hired people to go into these places and buy some product and they took it back to their lab and found that the products had indeed been tampered with. They found sewer water and rat feces in these products (Paul Mitchell products). I would hope that your health is more important to you that you would appreciate an online pharmacy requiring a prescription from you and not selling the medications cheaper than you would pay for a pack of cigarettes.

So if you're ok with taking chances on your skin/body with places like this feel free but when you're slathering on the ol' $3.25 Retin A it could be something else, let's hope it's not sewer water or rat feces!!!!!!!

Arty, if you go to the drop down menu of 'equivalent brands' and then go to retin you will see a few different options for it, ie cream, gel, micro and different strengths.

These products are of the same potency and purity as the prescriptions I have received in Canada. I haven't seen any difference.

I have to agree, danipage. Retin-A is one thing, but using eyedrops or any other prescription med from ADC is chancy.

Cases in point: I ordered my prescription nasal spray for allergies from them and found that it burned my nasal passages like acid! Sure it was cheap but I can't use it!! Wasted money. The Lumigan from there took forever, like 16 weeks, to show any results, while ppl using the USA brand name Latisse are seeing results much much sooner! Same drug? The label says so, but who knows?? I didn't have the same result. More wasted money.

I get my RAM from CanadaDrugSuperStore.com and it's every bit as good as my USA Rx RAM. Not as cheap as ADC but at least I feel confident I'm getting what I pay for. It's my health - why compromise it for a couple bucks?

CanadaDrugSuperStore.com is where I get my meds. They are legit and the drugs are reliable. No funny business with Viagra spam either.

But many ppl love ADC, Ashes. I think you have to try it for yourself, like everything around here!! It just isn't for me, that's all.


I most definitely would advise anyone NOT to order their regular prescription meds from an online pharmacy other than a Canadian one...and even some of them are iffy. Just my two cents worth.
