Vivier Retinol 0.5% is the ideal choice for the treatment of moderate skin concerns.
Our formula uses industry leading Poly-Pore® Technology to encapsulate our high potency pure retinol and gently release it over time to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, and reduce breakouts without the irritation and redness often associated with retinol products. Specially formulated with additional powerhouse ingredients Vitamin C & E to maximize your results plus squalane to minimize irritation. Fresh skin is brought to the surface and collagen production is boosted to deliver plumper, smoother, brighter skin.
Retinol 0.5% is ideal for all skin types, maintaining results, and skin that has been pre-conditioned with 0.3% Retinol SR Complex.
*Poly-Pore® is a registered trademark of Minerals Technologies Inc.
*New to retinol or have sensitive skin? Consider starting with Vivier 0.3% Retinol SR Complex to properly pre-condition the skin*
Cleanse and tone your face and apply any lightweight serums before use. Apply a thin layer of Retinol 0.5% to face, neck and decolletage. Follow with your favourite cream or moisturizer, as desired. Daily use of SPF 30 or higher is essential as retinol use naturally makes the skin more sensitive to the sun.
To reduce the chance of initial dryness or redness, we suggest beginning with one application, once or twice a week, gradually increasing frequency up to every evening as tolerated by your skin.
We recommend stepping up to Vivier Retinol 1% upon completion of your first tube if daily application is well tolerated and you are seeking advanced results.

Q: Do I need a prescription for Retinol 0.5%?
A: No. Retinol 0.5% is available without a prescription.
Q: What is the precaution when using retinol?
A: Since retinol use makes the skin more sensitive to the sun, proper protection with an SPF 30 or higher is essential. To further reduce the chance of any sun sensitivity, we recommend applying our retinol complexes at night.
Q: Can retinol products be used by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding?
A: We do not recommend retinol products for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Please consult your doctor before use.
Q: How long does it take to see results from retinol use?
A: Not all retinol products are created equal so results can vary significantly by brand. Thanks to our high potency pure retinol, complimentary quality ingredients, and Poly-Pore® slow-release delivery technology, you can expect to see noticeable results with little to no irritation in 2-3 weeks.
Q: Can I use this product after professional treatments?
A: Retinol is known to be a great results booster and can be used to help maintain results from a wide variety of anti-aging and pigmentation protocols such as peels and facials. Due to the wide range of treatments available and uniqueness of each patient’s skin, we always recommend consulting your doctor or esthetician for medical advice post-treatment.

It is absorbed well . Not irritating dry and sensitive skin. I used the trial size . I am happy to see results in overall clarity and texture improvement as well as reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentations. I like to try out 1 % night one as well . But overall I am very happy with this product and price point is good for my budget .VPVivier Pharma1 month ago

So I started using this not too long ago and so far so good. It did not irritate my skin. I’m still building up my tolerance and using it 3 times a week for now. However, I do not like how this is a thick cream consistency and is hard to use on dry skin (as the instructions direct). I know with retinol you don’t have to use a lot, just a pea sized amount, but that barely spreads on my face and dries up as soon as I start patting/massaging it into my skin. And as a result I end up using a lot more of the product. Maybe it would be better if it were a slightly more runnier product? Easily spreadable? Or maybe I am doing something wrong? 😂VPVivier Pharma1 month ago
Please give it more time. This may take up to 12-16 weeks before noticing any change. Please be sure to take some before and after pictures to see the difference.
