Tretinoin Gel 0.10% Face Peel

This face peel gel is a keratolytic gel that causes skin to peel and slough off VERY well, revealing new lighter baby soft skin underneath. Tretinoin Gel {a.k.a retin-a} peels skin without the burning/stinging and irritation found in other acids {i.e. glycolic, lactic, etc.} It is used to treat acne, wrinkles, and is an excellent skin-bleach penetration enhancer. This face peel gel exfoliates, stimulates collagen production and skin turn over, diminishes hyper-pigmentation, age spots and blemishes. It greatly improves the quality of skin & gives it a beautiful smooth glowing radiant airbrushed look with continued use. Know that 1 tube goes a long way when a thin layer is applied all over once a day, 2-3Β times a week. After use, you’ll experience a lot of skin peeling and flakes especially if you have never exfoliated before.


Tretinoin (aka all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA), retin-a, retinol) is used for the treatment of acne, photoaging, and acute promyelocytic leukemia (oral pills). For acne and photoaging, it is applied to the skin as a cream, gel or ointment. For leukemia, it is taken by mouth for up to three months.


Tretinoin Gel 0.10% will give you an amazing face peel. It is a penetration enhancer for all skin bleach/whiteners, it is important to use this face peel in order to see results when bleaching or whitening the face ears & neck areas. Tretinoin is most commonly used to treat acne. Multiple studies support the efficacy of topical retinoids in the treatment of acne vulgaris. Tretinoin face peel is sometimes used in with other topical acne creams to enhance their penetration. In addition to treating active acne, retinoids accelerate the resolution of acne-induced post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Photoaging is premature skin aging resulting from prolonged and repeated exposure to solar radiation. Features of photoaging include fine and coarse wrinkles, change in skin pigmentation, and loss of elasticity. In human skin, topical retinoids increase collagen production, induce epidermal hyperplasia, and decrease keratinocyte and melanocyte atypia. Topical tretinoin can be used as a face peel for mild to severe photoaging in people of all skin types.

    I been using Tretinoin Gel (Rein-A) since 2015 and decide to leave my review now because I has to tell you this thing does work... every time I have use,( 1x every 2 week for a month) it leave my skin feeling very soft, my wrinkle in the face smooth, and I have dark spots in my face that have fade away and my pores shrinks . I believe if I would be more constant using it my dark spots would have disappear by now ,but i only use this product in winter time when there is not much sun exposure. I have use other expensive products and had to use more than 4 tube to see result, a single size of Tretinoin Gel 20g have last me 1 year and I start seen result a week and this product start peeling my skin in 3 day after i have apply, If I have a few pimples at the moment of apply Tretinoin Gel they also gone. I has to say that after 3 month without using Tretinoin Gel my dark spot will come back, but then like I say before I'm not constant with this product and I use sunblock every other day. I use also hydroquinone for the dark spot and see fast result in 1 week they fade away .

    I've been using Retin A on and off for a while. I have sensitive skin, so when I have a breakout, Retin A really smooths out my skin. Although the pimple(s) disappear(s), dark marks are left behind and I hate trying covering them up with makeup. Retin A works very well with the 20% hydroquinone to lighten the dark spots quickly, also.I saw results in about a week.

    Used this with hydro 20 and it gave a great peel, just be careful to use only a small amount because it is very strong and can cause redness and irritation if used too often or on sensitive skin.

    I have been battling a skin condition for about 3 years now,due to long term use of mercury & steroid based skin lighteners. my face and neck have the worst hyperpigmentation in the world. The discolouration on my face are on both my cheecks, around my lips, my nose and my eye lids. i cant walk out of my room without makeup, and my self esteem is completely in the garbage. I have seen every dermatologist in Toronto and tried endless products. some times certain products works for about a week and then my skin regresses back. I have spent thousands of dollars on my condition, and was willing to have surgery done, if only i could find a doctor. i decided to try isis' tretinion gel and am pleased to say my face and neck have definately improved. for once i dont look in the mirror at night and cry myself to sleep. this gel has given me hope. ive used it about 5 times now, and each time i see more improvement. i have ordered 3 more. This is my first review ever, i am hoping someone will see this review , try this product and have a life changing experience. Isis thank you!

    Right now I am using several products but for now I'll just review 2 of them. Retin-A peels my skin so good. The hydroquinone cream works wonders! I had a birth mark on the side of my face covering my eye, that I have tried to get rid of since foreva! That dark patch made me look like I got burned or got a black eye from being beat up. I have always been made fun of for it, but never reveal how much it really hurt me. I'd just laugh it off and just tell whoever to STFU! I have used store bought bleaching creams and they never did squat! I even have some skin bleach I got from a dermatologist office, which still didn't work. I was considering laser treatments that get rid of skin color until I found this hq 20%. I am so glad to have found this cream it's saving my life right now. The patch is almost gone, everyone in my family has been commenting and ask what I did.

    I bought the retin a gel .1 a month back since I had a horrible outbreak during the winter months. This completely started smoothing out my skin in about a month of weekly use. It even dried up black heads that I didn't even know was there. My skin looks bump free now and back to normal except for the dark spots that acne leaves on caramel skin. I will be ordering the Saliclear for my feet since the summer/sandal months are coming and I annihliated my toes with tight heeled boots. I will also be getting the hydroquinone 20% to lighten them and the dark acne spots. It's amazing to have these options and not feel hopeless.

    It is almost impossible to find products that do what they say. So even as I spent my money on the Retinol & Retinol soap I really wasn't expecting results. Let me say that I WAS DEAD WRONG!!!! I'm a 36 year old AA woman. I have been wearing makeup since I was a teenager trying to cover up hyperpigmentation. And I can say that after a few weeks my face is smooth and clear enough to go without makeup!!! I even look younger! This is a real review! I'm not being paid, and let me just say ISIS....NEVER STOP SELLING THESE PRODUCTS!!!! MIRACLES!!!! THANKS!

    I love retin a !! This stuff has changed my life. My skin looks so unreal in a good way! My skin looks like liquid silk. I had blemishes from a few acne blisters on my chin from a few weeks before. I bought some cheap skin bleach stuff from Walgreen's that I was gonna use for the acne dark spots but I heard about retin a being like a penetration enhancer & will make acne meds and bleach work faster so searched the net & read more information. I found Isis who has it for 20 bucks so said *F` it, let me try this one* This is my first experience with retin a. So I got it, and put it on once a week like they said. So 3 days later I'm peeling like crazy! AHHH! but it didn't really scare me, cuz thats what they said it will do. Anyway. I DID pick at the peeling. It came right off, it was kind of like a domino effect. So for 2 days I was peeling a lot it came off every time I washed my face, and the skin under neath was like that new born baby color, but a day later it was like perfect new lighter extra smooth soft skin. No joke! My skin looks so unreal! like an air-brushed picture if you know what I mean. Not to mention I totally neglected the stuff I bought from Walgreens. It's been 3 weeks now and I have only used Retin a twice. Apparently thats all I needed so I guess for me it will be a 2ce per month usage. Honestly I have to say that I am so happy with my skin. Why aren't celebs endorsing this stuff? Retin A is advertised as some acne treatment but it does so much more than that! I didn't have acne. I had some dark spot on my chin from a prior break out that had cleared up already. It made the dark acne blemish go way and made the rest of my skin picture perfect! Please explain that! Oh well, screww celebs, us adverage Joe's & Joe'ettes have are own *best kept secret* hahah. Sorry for the long review but I just feel so good about this & wanted to share my experience. Good luck to everyone. Good night

    I just wanted to tell everyone that I made other purchases and got the Tretinoin Gel (Rein-A) as a free gift and this stuff REALLY WORKS!!! I normally have moderate acne but due to being female and unwanted visits from mother nature Ughhh!!! During those times I experience severe, EXPLOSIVE acne breakouts all over my face... I had Gabrielle Union's skin color with dark acne spots all over my face.. I started out using it for 2 days straight and my very oily skin started drying up so then I changed the use to once every 2 days... and within LESS THAN A WEEK the black spots started to disappear from off of my face. I am so happy and I feel like I am able to have people look in my face and talk to me without beings so shamed at what they may be thinking as they look at my face A little goes a long way. I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and not even down to a half of a tube yet!!!
