Hello beutiful ladies
I'm using retin A for 4 months now to get rid of a few wrinkles with no visible results yet. When did you start to see results with Retin A and what strenght are you using ?
I have been using 0.025 % for 3 months and I'm currently using 0.05% stenght for 5 weeks now.
I'm really worried i will be among the little group of people who haven't achieved any results with Retin A.

Hello Chelsie
I live in UK so I'm not sure if this will help you or not...I bought Retin A gel 0.025% through this company - Medical-Specialists Ltd , I have tried to find the site where I bought my Retin A 0.05% from, but couldn't - I have actually bought Retino A 0.05% which should be the same thing -it's still 0.05% tretinoin cream, you might get hold one easier than Retin A.

Ondine buys hers from alldaychemist.com and she is in Canada.
They might be finicky about certain credit cards if I remember correctly.

Chelsie, I use my RA on my face, neck, decolte, and under my eyes, but
ONLY every other night. I think a few here use RA every night on the same areas with no problems. I think it depends on the strength you are using and how your skin will react to using it. It might be too strong to use right away every night until your skin adjusts. Just start out slowly and see how you do with it.

I didn't have the patience for retin a treatments (patience isn't a male's strong point though)
. I started using copper peptide cream and it worked much better and much faster for me. Look into it you won't be sorry =)

what do u think of rice peptides?
I have never used rice peptides. I know it is an ideal component for anti-aging products, A site I buy from carries it.

Do you use rice peptides? What are your thoughts on it?

The biggest mens skin care line Zirh uses a rice peptide in their moisturizer to protect collagen.
I know about Zirh as I live with all boys-
but did not know this was an ingredient. We have a few of their products the boys use. The cleansing bar, the scrub and the defend moisturizer with SPF. Which moisturizer uses the rice peptide, do you know?

chelsie I think it was six months before I seen a difference with the Retin A, I added the simple DIY C Serum and my skin became even better. I order my Retin A from All Day Chemist, the service was great and I received my products in 10 days and I did not have to pay duty!
