Hola

Where is everyone sourcing there Retin A online these days? I used it many years ago and decided I want to start again. I'm trying to find the Johnson & Johnson brand with no luck! I just looked at the place where I used to buy it from and can't figure how the hell they come up with there pricing. It's EXTORTIONATE!

Gymrat did you buy RA from this source http://www.topsaleshops.com/index.as...Search=retin+a ? Did u know if this source is OK? It has no too much thinks. Do u know about shipping? How much???
No, @Iren70 the only place I have purchased RA online is from ADC. I've never purchased from topsaleshop. I am currently using a tube my Derm prescribed for me. Not sure I will need to order online for awhile.

Read reviews on the place mentioned then decide if you want to give it a try.

Never heard of it.......tell me more, how much is shipping?? Do they ship worldwide?
@Neom consider posting this in the product section for those in EU area, you may get someone who has given it a try.

@gymrat I was just doing some googling yesterday as I was curious and came across them. That other source I had - well I've not ordered anything yet.. I think they've just sold out what I was after.. This greater London pharmacy doesn't do PayPal so I think it's a no no for me.
Shipping to US is $15.00 for registered mail or $30.00 for express mail. The Retin A 0.05 for three x 20 gm tubes is $53.88. Is that good?

WOW!! $15 isn't bad on shipping to the US. And does the $53.88 include your shipping?? Seems kinda pricey. ADC are anywhere from $2.50-$6.50 a tube depending on the type you get. Gel is usually more. You can get 6 tubes for $28 from ADC.

All Day Chemist is running a $15 shipping special, their product is cheap its the shipping that usually is pricy.

Here is another source mentioned in a previous thread

Thanks for the info, Gym! I made a massive purchase of Retin-A cream in my most recent trip to Egypt but lost the bag :loser:.

On a side note: I know that gels are generally preferred but I must say I prefer the creams. I find them to be somehow less harsh.

What?? You lost the bag of RA?? What luck......did you not carry it on with you?? What a bummer.

Actually I use RA micro which is time released micro spheres, its the least harsh of all.......love it!!

Do you have dry skin?? Cream usually works well for those with dryer skin. Acne prone, combo skin, gel is usually the one to go with.

Today I wanted to buy Retin A.Could not. They have payment very strange. It is not Paypal. It is Skrill. I tried, but they asked for too much personal information....So I did not do it. Someone said that she used Pay pall....NO .They don't have it. I was afraid to buy there.

I contacted the RA seller that I buy from http://www.topsaleshops.com/index.as...Search=retin+a he says someone reported him to PayPal about selling RA without a PP. He told me buyers can still order with PayPal but he needs to send you an invoice first. This is what he said below.

"I understand PayPal is popular to use in most people who want to make an online payment.
Don't worry about it, just place an order then there's an email and destination address, then I'll send a new invoice via PayPal for the payment."
