Tested for 30 days and recommended by Denise L.:

I was eager to try Hand Chemistry Retin-Oil because I’d discovered Hand Chemistry Intense Youth Complex lotion and fell in love with it. I’d had peeling and red finger tips from handling dirty paperwork from a construction site. It was the only lotion that gave me relief and I stock up on it now. I am 59 and have normal/oily skin.

I didn’t use this product on my face. I used it on my body. It was the last thing I applied both morning and night. The oil does have a light fragrance which I can’t identity; it didn’t bother me. I really like that there is only a pinpoint opening at the top of the bottle. Oils can pour out of their containers with just a regular opening. And although I used it liberally morning and night for the last four weeks, there is still half a bottle remaining.

This product says it will help scars and stretch marks, as well as aging and dehydrated skin. I was delighted to find that it worked exceptionally well on the elephant like skin above my knees. It’s the only product I’ve used that had such a remarkable effect. The white-ish cast on that skin is gone. Yes, the crepey-ness and lines are still there but it looks so much better than before.

I found it improved the bumps on the tops of my upper arms considerably. The bumps are gone; there is still a slight pink color in the area which I hope will disappear with continued use. I tested it on stretch marks on my inner thighs and definitely saw an improvement there. The marks are firmer and less visible. I used it on my red elbows and there is improvement, although the “knob” of my elbow is still pink. I also tested it on a burn scar on my hand, from when I hit an oven rack earlier this year. The scar improved somewhat but it still visible.

I didn’t have an issue with any of the ingredients. The first ingredient, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, is an antimicrobial skin conditioning agent. But what makes this oil work is the vitamins C, A and E. Ascorbyl palmitate is an ester of vitamin C that is fat soluble and can penetrate the skin faster. Hydroxypinacolone retinoate is a less irritating retinol that helps repair skin. I’d read that AHAs cancel the effects of retinol so I stopped using a body lotion with AHA while I was doing this review. Tocopheryl acetate is a form of vitamin E that works as an antioxidant and helps promote healing.

This product exceeded my expectations. I don’t ever want to be without it.

    I bought this retin oil specifically for my old stretch marks on my tummy. The oil has lessened their appearance so much and then after that dries I follow up with my favorite lotion I found here on TIA- Reliance Body Lotion by Stemulation. I will be excited to see the results after 6 months.
    I also use this oil on my finger nails and toenails after cleaning and filing them down during my own given mani/pedi.pedi. The nail and nail beds look so moist and healthy. Really helps my fingernails to grow and they don't appear aged in any way. :) New product of mine !

    Mix with all your body products. Delivers fast results and no issues of breakouts. Works wonders on tops of hands, arms and legs. Have also used on neck and even face.
    Agree with Preksha's review , after only one bottle!

    This product is STELLAR! I have intense stretch marks on my shoulders and stomach and thought I would just have to live with these forever. However, the Retin Oil has helped fade them so much since I started using this in March -- it's unbelievable! And I am only now nearing the end of my first bottle -- incredible performance, incredible value.
