Renova vs Refissa – which is better?

Have been using RENOVA 0.02% ...... And loving the results. How does REFISSA COMPARE? and which strength is comparable??

Basically, you will get the same results with long term use.   The Refissa is in a oilier, more emollient base and is better for very dry skin.   Since we are all individuals, it’s sometimes helpful to try both and just see which one you like best, especially for a product (retinoid) that you may be using for many, many years.    More info here.   Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
