Can I use with a Retinol?
I am looking for a great peel to help reduce the size of my pores, acne and fine lines. However, I just started using a Retinol product at night and I am having a hard time finding peels without AHA/BHA--which I don't want to use with a Retinol. This looks like it has only natural ingredients, so it might be a good option--but I wanted to ask! Could I use this with a Retinol? Does anyone have any suggestions of peels that I can use before a nightly Retinol cream? Thank you!

on FIRMx™ Peeling Gel
I use this with Retin A and it has saved me during this process. It's absolutely incredible. The awful flaking they speak of is near to non existent with this product so I highly recommend you use it. :)

I have used a Retinoid product for the last 2 years and this peeling gel has changed my life! It was recommended to me by a sales associate when I went in to find a BB/CC cream and you could see the dead skin cells caking under the makeup. She recommended that I use once weekly, I have been using for a month and applying about every 5-7 days. When I start to see dry skin when flaking under my makeup I know it is time to use the peeling gel again.
I'm not a health expert or anything like that, so my following comment is purely my opinion. I am on Retin A right now, and I use this product and have not seen any adverse effect. In fact, it sloughs off the dry, dead skin that Retin A caused. However, my skin is different from yours, so you probably want to do an allergy test on a small patch of skin first.
I use retinol and this really gets rid of the little flaky pieces of skin without irritating my skin like scrubs do.

Yes, you can use this with retinol, but not nightly. Only 1-3 times per week max. Start with once per week and see how your skin responds.
