Like Results? Then You'll Love Retinol

We know, we know: Patience is a virtue. Good things come to those who wait — yada yada. But, in a world that moves at a million miles an hour, can you blame us for wishing the results of our skin care would follow suit? That's why we love retinol — whenever we use products infused with the vitamin A-derived ingredient, we see a serious difference in our skin after just a few applications. We're talkin' noticeable smoothness and clarity here, you guys.
But, with great power comes great responsibility: Retinol (closely related to prescription Retin-A) is a supercharged solution if there ever was one, and, as such, those with sensitive skin might prefer to use a product that promises similar results.
That being said, we rounded up products from all across the retinol spectrum in the form of creams, cleansers, concentrates, and more. But, there's one thing they all have in common: seriously significant results.
