GloTherapeutics GloRetinol is made by GloTherapeutics. The main ingredient in this solution is the high concentration of retinol, which is about 3%. Retinols have been known for decades to have many “peeling” effects on the skin. Many Vitamin A derived products are used in cosmetic creams and lotions for this effect. However, now we also have retinol as a solution. GloTherapeutics GloRetinol claims that when the retinol solution is applied on to the skin regularly, it can erase fine lines and wrinkles and open up the pores. The end result is a younger looking skin that is soft, smoother and radiant. GloTherapeutics GloRetinol has been recommended for the treatment of photo-aged skin, aging skin with fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun damaged skin, removal of skin pigments and as a peeling agent.

When the retinol is applied on to the skin, it basically peels off the superficial skin and removes the debris. The shed skin is then gradually replaced by new skin which is young and fresh looking. Before using the GloTherapeutics GloRetinol product, a skin test should always be performed to ensure that one is not allergic to these potentially harsh ingredients. Apply a small amount of the solution on the face, and wait for 48 hours. If no redness or itch it evident you can use the formula. One should not use GloRetinol every day. For the best results it should be used 2-4 times a week. Because the product does produce photosensitivity, it is highly recommended that one wear a sunscreen when going out.

The Good

  • Contains retinol.
  • Decent website.
  • Easy to order.
  • Ingredients listed.
  • Relatively cheap.

The Bad

  • Moderately expensive.
  • Some dealer sites have no refund policy.
  • Retinol can be very harsh, especially if users have sensitive skin.
  • Retinol is primarily a skin peeling agent that will remove an outer layer of skin, but it will not treat the many causes of wrinkles.

The Bottom Line

GloTherapeutics GloRetinol is claimed to reverse aging and treat many other skin ailments. Looking at the ingredients, one does notice a number of synthetic chemicals. Retinol at 3% is also not well tolerated by many individuals with sensitive skin. There is no doubt that retinol when combined with a peeling agent can do wonders for the skin but the cosmetic benefits are mild to moderate at best. Retinol can remove the dead skin and help in the regeneration of new skin but it does not do anything for the deep scars, wrinkles or facial creases. GloRetinol is best for individual who have very oily skin, mild acne scars and minor skin blemishes. GloRetinol is not that expensive and it is readily available online. The product must be tested prior to use to ensure that one does not have any allergies.

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Revivasol is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. By recommending lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, Revivasol has firmly placed their customers health first. We never see skin care companies doing this sort of marketing. In addition, scientifically-proven results on how the formula works says it all, and the Revivasol website provides ample proof. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the clinical studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Revivasol is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Revivasol Go

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this!
