An intensive skin refiner for thick, tolerant skins wanting more aggressive treatment of acne and aging concerns.
Truth Treatments recommends Regenerating 5% Retinol Gel for experienced retinol users. If you have never used Retinol before, we suggest trying Truth Treatments Resurfacing 1% Retinol first.
With proper use, you’ll see a difference in skin tone and texture within days. Retinoids help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars. Regenerating 5% Retinol Gel’s potent blend of healing Vitamin C and exfoliating Vitamin A remove dead and dulling skin cells to fade discoloration, smooth lines and refine scars. With continued use, the skin will look tighter, clearer and brighter, breakouts will dissipate, and blackheads will dissolve.
Ideal For: All skin types, especially thicker, stronger skin, concerned with aging, lines/wrinkles, discoloration, and blemished skin.

I have only been using the 5% retinol for a couple of weeks, but am amazed that I have not had any issues. I use it along with the healing balm and I love them both. I can’t wait to start seeing results.
Finally a retinol that does what I need it to do! This works without drying my skin or creating flakiness. A must have!
I have used this gel (a tiny amount mixed with the 1 percent retinol lite) only two times so far. I can’t really address the long-term results yet, but I can say this packs a punch, even when using the Omega 6 balm with it. I got some minor flaking the first week, but it also triggered some rosacea on my cheeks. Fortunately I got it cleared right up, and the second time was not as bad as the first. So I think if I keep my doses about 8 days apart for now, my cheeks will adjust and I can build up to the straight 5 percent gel. Keeping my fingers crossed! The 1 percent retinol lite does not bother my rosacea at all, btw. I can use it every other night with no problems.
Amazing product !!! Really helps with acne scares, wake up with a glow. Very potent tho I had no issues using it regularly and no peeling - feels very hydrating ! Pea sized amount is all that’s needed. Best ever retinal !!! What a difference a few applications have made. 5 stars!!!! Only wish it was a neutral color
This gel is very potent. I only use a tiny pea size amount with the TT mineral mist once a week. I do experience slight peeling on day 4 but no irritation at all. So far my skin feels softer and smoother. Hoping to see more noticeable results with continued use. Good product!
