I tend to let it dry and sit for a bit, then follow with moisturizer. It can be a bit drying so using moisturizer is smart. Good luck!

I like to use the day regime (Ruby hydracreme) first> Since I have combination skin, I use strictly oilfree suncreen (spf 35) on forehead area then I use a moisterizer with spf 35 on my cheeks, nose & chin area. Then I will proceed with my mineral base powder.

Serum always first, then moisturizer. Serum helps to make your moisturizer better.

I would continue to use my moisturizer after applying this. It's important to use a sunscreen over it if using it during the day. Skin treated with this tends to be more prone to burning.

Not if you want to be on the safe side. Retinol is not as strong as Retin A, but do what I did and wait until your baby is born and done breast feeding. The last thing you want to do is cause yourself a "what-if" moment because of skin care! I used a number of the Ole Henrickson products during pregnancy and got great results without worrying about harming my baby.

Not at all. In fact, these products have been my saving grace against my somewhat drying face wash and cold northeast weather. I wake up and the first thing i notice is how healthy my skin feels.

Neither of the products will cause the skin to dry. Both contain many ingredients, like Hydra-Balance and OliveActive, to soothe, hydrate, and comfort the skin. Also, both contain honey, which is calming, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and promotes healing.

I have really dry skin and I haven't found them to be drying at all. Although I am using a cleanser right now that is moisturizing so maybe that combination is working for me. And I thought I'd need to use moisturizer with these products but I haven't.. on the box they are actually described as "restoring hydration" and "counteracts dryness, redness&irritation." Hopefully this helps you!

My dermatologist said I could, but to avoid the ducts and lids...patting on ever so lightly and VERY sparingly. She suggested every other day. I have had no irritation and can see the difference it makes in my extremely sensitive skin...when caution is observed. Hope that helps.

I was advised to use this in the winter when I get less sun or I'd be more susceptible to sun damage. I thought the results were remarkable.

answer 2
Absolutely not! If anything, you should be avoiding the sun when using products containing Retinol. Wearing sunscreen is beyond important as it makes your skin more sensitive to the harsh effects of the sun's rays. This product is excellent and you need just a tiny amount...you can even skip a day if you find it too drying. I would use a moisturizer with SPF protection or a foundation with SPF of at least 30..and wear sunglasses. Retinol is serious business and while the sun is fun, it's important to protect your face..especially around the delicate eye area. Love love love this kit!

the instructions say to avoid any kind of exfoliation for like 6 weeks, but this stuff seemed so gentle to me, I went back to using my Clarisonic and my daily exfoliating cleanser after a week with no ill effects. Depending on the kind of home peel you are using, you may want to wait a little longer. I think you should also just try it on a small "less sensitive" area of your face first, like a patch on your chin, nose or forehead.

I wouldn't. I think your skin may get irritated. Even though this is 2% retinol I don't think it comes out as 2% in one shot but it is still pretty strong.

Honestly, I don't think you'll need to...with regard to your face/complexion. I used to use the peels, but said farewell once I found this. The peels are still great for hands, neck, ankles and feet...places peeps sometimes about. That's what I've been using my own peels for and in conjunction, you're covering your bases. :) I cannot urge people enough to try this, but with caution and to let their skin adjust...spacing use and strength apart with a great moisturizer.

I would not use 2 dermabrasive products together because it could cause irritation. Maybe just alternate every 4 days between the two.

The silver jar is for the evening before bed and the pink one has a lower dosage of retinol for the day time. Use sunscreen as your skin will be more prone to sunburns when using this product.

Good Luck

The night serum should be used ONLY at night, and the hydra creme should be used ONLY in the morning. Both products have a bit of a shea butter base, which means the night serum is actually hydrating. It feels nothing like any other serum I've ever used. If you really feel you need a moisturizer on top of the serum, I recommend Dr Brandt's INFINITE MOISTURE, or TIME ARREST CREME (for those who want lifting/firming/tightening).

No, the Overnight Serum is your night serum, with a hydrator, the Ruby Retinol Moisturizer is meant to be used during the day with a sunscreen.

Does it make your face look shiny or oily

No shiny appearance, even if you're oily in the T-zones like I am. Frankly, I find the rube glow product odd because even with the addition of my normal day moisturizer (I was a teeny bit dry the first few applications), I wasn't over-moisturized.

What you do get varries, though. Some get a dewy finish. Some get that glow that you're supposed to get. Others, like me, won't notice a single difference. (The serum is great. I'm referring to the pink bottle.)
