A highly customized, entry-level retinol (delivered in pre-dosed pads) to maintain skin's collagen and elastin density. Ginger Root, Marula and Grapeseed Oil help enhance the delivery of the retinol deep within the skin's layers. On the surface, a gentle exfoliation occurs to minimize pores and increase skin's luminosity. This is the ideal level for anyone looking to maintain skin firmness and actively prevent skin aging. Also for anyone, at any age, with sensitive skin.

Optimum retinol sustaining

I like it and it’s helped my wrinkles not show as much. I was hoping it would help my blemishes a bit more

Healthier skin

The retinal pads are easy to use and my skin has improved. Fine lines have diminished some and my skin looks better over all.
I have sensitive skin and see no irritation at all. I highly recommend Level 1 Retinol pads!

So far so good!

It does seem to be working nicely! Just what my sensitive skin needed. I couldn’t handle a regular dose of retinol without constant peeling and break out. I have a few small break outs, but my skin looks more glowing!

Retinol Pads for Sensitive Skin

I have sensitive skin but was anxious to start on Dr. Koo’s skincare regimen that she prescribed for me, so she suggested I begin with her Level 1 retinol pads to help me treat pesky pigmentation and renew my skin without too much irritation or dryness. And all I can say is it’s totally working! I’ve never tried retinol pads before but I find them way more convenient and thorough to apply to my skin than anything else I’ve ever used. I haven’t had a bit of irritation either. This product is pure genius!
