"There’s enough retinol in this formula to deliver the anti-aging, skin boosting results you want, but not so much that beginners can’t use it. The creamy formula soothes your skin while the retinol goes to work (no irritation here!)." - ESQUIRE
“While I loved each of the products, the greatest triumph for me was the gentle texture – and impactful result – of the Glycolic and Retinol Treatments. Fig.1 elevated my current experience with harsh retinol and glycolic brands, from stinging and abrasive to gentle and soothing, without losing efficacy. Bravo!” - THE QUALITY EDIT
“I’m also a huge fan of the Retinol Renewal Cream No. 1. because I’m desperately trying to stay young!” - CLAIRE HOLT, HAUTE LIVING
“...and the Retinol Renewal Cream No. 1 ($38) didn’t irritate my sensitive skin at all.” - BYRDIE
