Has anyone been scammed buying retin a online? Unfortunately some of the better known online pharmacies don't ship to my country. So I recently placed a order on a place with decent prices but no feedback on the forums from past buyers. (I also have a reliable but pricier source). And I'm pretty skeptical it's going to come. I've noticed a lot of strange behaviour from them. Like constantly calling me asking me to place more orders. And the tracking number doesn't seem legit. I'll keep you updated!

My sister and I both bought retina online and are prettier certain it is not actual retina. We've both used it for years. It has a pearly look and the ones we got do not look that way and neither of us peeled after use which happens with the real thing. I broke down and got it from a pharmacy out of pocket ( prescription from doc). Which was so expensive but I'm wasting money buying fakes. I used to buy online all the time. Anyone else think they got a fake?

Well the online pharmacy I took a chance on didn't let me down. I received my retin a and its the same brand and manufacture / expiry dates etc of the one I'm already using. So I think it's legit too.

I bought Retin A 0.05% and 0.025% from http://www.topsaleshops.com/index.as...Search=retin+a. I contacted seller and he sent me invoice .I paid it. Today I got RA. It took 15 days. I bought 10g tubes. No shipping cost. Only I paid by Pay pal. So, will see if it's work well. I got 10g because I have other Retin A that wil expire very soon.. Question....If Retin will expire, I can't use it??

Yes, you can still use it, they just can't sell it. I use mine once expired and it still works the same.

Glad topsales worked for you and nice they accept paypal.

I just noticed eBay seemed to have banned Retin-A/Tretinoin from being sold on the website! This is very annoying. Anyone have recommendations for places that accept Paypal and do 0.1%? I really do not trust giving me card details to some of these sites. I looked at Topsales but they don't seem to have 0.1%. Help!

Ebay not selling it I think is actually a good thing as in the UK there were a lot of horror stories about Retin A and it was simply from people not educating themselves about using it properly. Sad thing is that it punishes everyone but then I suppose it is a prescription medicine for a reason. I read that one 18 year old girl was so fearful about aging she was applying 0.1% several times a day and of course her skin reacted badly to it. Sad thing is that everyone is punished now by this person's behavior which is unfair. Having said that Retin A produces some horrible side effects whereas using Retinol products can produce same results but just need a little time to do so.

Isn't that always the case, what's sad is RA has been around for years and isn't even easy to get, even when you have a prescription. It's a constant game with insurance, and I play it often, the things we have to do for a little topical gel :eek:

cheapest way to legitimately get retin a (any other RX):

1. use an app like Spruce (what I use) to see a dermatologist for free/cheap (promo code, any other visits $40) + takes about 1-5hrs to get RX. I'm sure there are others, haven't found any though.
2. get the RX for generics
3. use GoodRX to find cheapest retin a (this is also how I got cheap HQ)
4. tell them to send to local pharmacy or an online one (quicker to go local).
5. use the pharmacy transfer/1st time fill coupons (CVS, Walgreens, etc. notorious for these coupons) + your CVS card

BONUS: Use your FSA/HSA card since it's a acne prescription from derm it is approved (check with your HSA/FSA provider first to verify).

in a few hours for $50 or less you get:
1. retin a
2. HQ
3. a visit w/a board certified derm
4. no insurance involved
5. using pre-tax dollars


pretty solid deal IMO. hope someone can provide tips to beat that. i don't mind getting anything cheaper ;)
