Actually, Dr. Dennis Gross has a fantastic retinol he recommends you use after this: Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution. I highly suggest trying this. There is no sting whatsoever. It literally feels like putting water on my face.

I also use products with retinol and have had no problems.

I think it is perfectly safe to use Retinol day and night, used in combination with the Kinerase Photofacials Kit, I have to say it has definitely made a huge difference in my skin's overall appearance, my freckles have definitlely diminished and have no problem using it daily, even though it leaves your face with a little sting at first, your skin will adapt with daily use, I use it both day and night for my daily regimen, and am so thankful that a Sephora Sales Associate came to my rescue when having a horrific breakout... I realize everyone's skin is different, and I normally have combination skin with hormonal breakouts... My skin has never looked better! I am a makeup artist for photographers as well as a self portrait photographer, and I rely on photoshop less then I ever have! I've turned on so many clients and co-workers to the stuff, it's ridiculous!
