renova users share advice please

cupajoeApril 4, 2006

I have just started using renova and it seems like I break out more.It is great with fine lines and age spots,but I would like to find a compatible acne product that is safe to use.Seems like my pre- menopausal bod is going hormone crazy before periods and I am always breaking out.Also would like to know what eye cremes you are using.I am finding that some products that I formerly used can't be used at all due to alcohol content and a stinging sensation.TIA

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The increased outbreaks should subside. That is a common side effect at the beginning. You might try using it less frequently and add on.

I used to use Retin-A, a similar medication. I wouldn't use another acne product with it. You might want to change to Retin-A Micro. It will give you the same results regarding fine lines, etc. but it formulated for acne.

I use vitamin E capsules around my eyes. I open one with a needle and pat it around my eyes and on my lips at night.

Here is a link that might be useful: Renova use.
