    I think that the phrase might be more photosensitive..... LOL!

    And, nope, it was over the internet. One can't buy it OTC here. Actually I don't think that one can even get it on perscription unless one goes private....

    I know that I have really great skin, but these last couple of years have been hard on the rest of me. Now that I'm post-menopausal I'm trying to ensure that it stays that way. In the New Year, I'll be joining a gym to ensure that I keep my bone density up so I figured why not look after my skin in the same way.


    I'm still not convinced about it, I think that it might be too strong - but I got the weakest I could.

    Do you use it all over your face? Or just on the wrinkled areas? I have literally two lines as crow's feet/laughter lines and thats it.....

    OK, I've used the Retin-A twice now (2 days running) on my decollage.
    My dr gave me something for my face to try to get rid of the rosacea... which I get to use for 3 months; so I'll see how I get on.

    Hi Novice. Per your question regarding facial use, I put a thin veneer of Retin A all over my face, including my upper and lower eyelids. It can be put on the lips as well, per my doctor. Don't forget the SPF lipbalm if you do the latter.

    Retin A should improve existing lines a bit and as a collagen builder, slow down the formation of new lines.

    if I use it on my face, I'm only going to be albe to use it on the "wrinkled" areas as even OTC-strength retin-A inflames my roseaca something chronic (red, inflammed, acned, etc).

    I didn't know that I could put it on my eyelids tho, thats news. Thanks!

    That's fine. Spot treating works too. No need to exacerbate the Rosacea.

    I got the ok for the eyelids from my doctor but not everybody can handle it. I have no issues with redness or flakiness in these areas at all. My chin is what gets so flaky with regular retinoid use.
