The first night I used it, I thought, “Well...if it does not get me results I need, it at least is not greasy, smells good, and makes my skin feel soft. I was a bit skeptical because I did not see a stated content percentage for the retinol. I have now been using this for ten days and this morning awoke and noticed the small “bumps” - either small non-painful cysts or milia - we’re GONE. I had them on my forehead and a cluster by my nose. I tried exfoliating, home peels, and steaming and they would not go away. They are gone! So, I got the result I wanted! And let me reiterate - this is not greasy. I have oily skin and had no problem using “Frownies” over the cream. And (even more miraculous) no new blemishes and no extreme dryness. If you have dry skin, you might try every other day first to see how it works for you.
