11 Best retinol creams and retinol serums for acne and wrinkles

"Howard Sobel, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in New York, launched his clean skin care line last year. In addition to retinol found in this treatment, there are peptides to help firm up your skin and chamomile extract for a calming effect. The brand claims it uses a patent-pending delivery system that slowly penetrates your skin so you get the benefits for a longer time, minus pesky irritation. It also has a Clean at Sephora seal of approval and a 4.5-star average rating from 127 Sephora reviewers ."


5 Derm-Approved Tips To Help Protect & Calm Skin From Smoke Exposure

"Antioxidants are the No. 1 skin care product to add to your routine if you have been exposed to smoke," Sobel says. These stabilize the free radicals that lead to oxidative stress (read: skin aging and loss of collagen), so incorporating antioxidants into your routine can support collagen levels, limit pigmentation, and reduce inflammation. Sobel recommends vitamin C and niacinamide, as these can simultaneously brighten up and smooth the skin. ."

"Finally, products containing bio hyaluronic acid, such as Dr. Sobel’s Skin Rx Bio Hyaluronic Moisturizing Cream is super moisturizing and can help restore the skin barrier that is disrupted by wearing a mask, he says."


The 26 Best Beauty Splurges of 2020

"Science tells us that retinol is the most effective topical at diminishing lines and stimulating collagen. Our mirror tells us it's also the most irritating. 'Tis a catch-22 that has left our skin in distress more than a few times. Not so with the Sobel Skin Rx 4.5% Retinol Night Treatment. This game-changer delivers a whopping dose of the vitamin A derivative (most over-the-counter retinols max out at 2 percent) in a slow-release formula, enabling you to skip ahead to the benefits — and bypass all the rough patches."

"I love an in-office peel to keep my skin texture smooth and bright, but since I haven't been able to go in for one, I've been relying on this at-home version from celeb dermatologist Dr. Howard Sobel's line. I loved how easy it was to use—just sprinkle a few drops onto a cotton pad and smooth it over your face, wait a few minutes, then rinse off—but loved the results even more. I was blown away after just using it once—the bumps and uneven skin texture on my forehead and cheeks seem considerably smoother, and my skin just felt fresher and brighter overall. I'm a convert."

“The Exact Order to Apply Your Skin-Care Products"

"Acne-prone or more oily skinned types should look for a foamy cleanser with ingredients like glycolic acid or salicylic acid, says Dr. Farber. These chemical exfoliants remove excess surface oil and built-up gunk from your pores to keep your skin soft and breakout-free. SOBEL SKIN Rx's 27% Glycolic Acid Facial Cleanser (Buy It, $42, ..., which contains 2% salicylic acid, will get the job done.

"The exceptionally high level of over-the-counter retinol in Sobel Skin Rx 4.5% Retinol Night Treatment is impressively non-irritating, thanks to fatty acids, aloe vera, and a smart time-release delivery system."


"The Best Products To Use For An At-home Derma Peel"



"4 Ingredients To Add To Your Skincare Routine This Summer"


The Skinny: Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are a class of ingredients known to gently exfoliate the top layer of your skin on a chemical level. They include glycolic, lactic, and citric acids (to name a few). “I recommend using an AHA like glycolic acid during the summer months because it will peel away dead skin cells from the surface without over-drying the skin,” Dr. Lombardi explains. How to Use It: Try a glycolic acid-based cleanser like the Sobel Skin Rx 27% Glycolic Acid Facial Cleanser."


"5 cheap dupes for high-end skincare products—according to dermatologists"

"Lactic acid has long been hailed as a gentle, dermatologist go-to for anti-aging and exfoliation. Because it’s less irritating than salicylic acid, it’s often recommended for patients with sensitive and dry skin, but it can also help those suffering from rosacea, superficial acne and hyperpigmentation.

“This is a great dupe,” says Dr. Howard Sobel, of Sobel Skin. “It will remove the layer of dead skin cells and reveal a radiant and youthful complexion. The ingredients are very straightforward, with the percentage of active ingredients right in the product name.” Dr. Sobel told us that the info is unclear with the pricier Sunday Riley treatment: “With Sunday Riley, the exact amount of active ingredients isn't as clear.” This is a fairly mild exfoliant, and it is also fragrance-free, making it a perfect option for all skin types. I would recommend using the product once a day to remove dirt and residue from the skin, followed by a moisturizer and sunscreen, like the Sobel Skin Rx Plant Stem Cell Day Cream + SPF 30, to protect freshly exfoliated skin from damaging UV rays and sunburn."


"How to Get Dewy Skin

From exfoliation, to hydration—everything you need to know to glow."

"Seal everything in with a humectant by applying a humectant rich (aka moisture magnetic) serum or moisturizer, you add another layer of skin plumping moisture. Rouleau's suggestion: look for a serum with sodium hyaluronate. "It’s a a bioactive salt form of hyaluronic acid. It recharges the moisture levels by binding 1000 times its weight in water to the skin’s surface, restoring comfort in seconds. You’ll see sodium hyaluronate used more frequently in products than hyaluronic acid. This is because it has a smaller molecular size, meaning it penetrates the skin more deeply. In addition, because it’s in a salt form, sodium hyaluronate tends to be more stable and less likely to oxidize. This ingredient is excellent for repairing a damaged moisture barrier and preventing transepidermal water loss caused by over-exfoliation, dry climate, or sun exposure."

"Want a 1-Step Skin-Care Routine? A Do-It-All Cleanser Could Be the Way"

"With 27 percent glycolic acid, this cleanser is the closest thing you’ll get to a derm-level chemical peel from your cleansing step. Despite its high intensity, it won’t strip skin, but instead will leave your complexion smooth, radiant, and totally clear of dead cells."

In fact, one study reported that topical use of niacinamide brightened skin by 68 percent in four weeks."

"If 4.5 percent sounds like a higher retinol concentration than your typical OTC retinol formula, your suspicions are right: two percent is the usual maximum. Developed by a dermatologist, Sobel Skin Rx 4.5% Retinol Night Treatment offsets the extra retinol — the potential irritation it can cause — with soothing ingredients like aloe vera and chamomile and macadamia seed oil to help fortify skin's barrier. And while the retinol gets to work on fine lines, it gets a helping hand from similarly smoothing peptides."

"Switzerland's Beauty Ingredients Are Even Better Than Its Chocolate-Here's Why You Should Be Trying Them For Yourself"

"Switzerland’s green apples are of a totally different variety than the one’s you’d pop into your bag in the produce section at Whole Foods. Thanks to their high acidity, they’re able to stay fresh and moist for months after they fall off of the tree, and scientists realized that they could reproduce this for skin by way of lab-generated stem cells. “It gives the skin more vitalization and moisturizes it,” says Piotaz. “It acts as an activator and protector for skin stem cells, which helps them to produce more healthy skin cells.” It also reduces lines and wrinkles by promoting cell regeneration."

"Why I've Created a Beauty Schedule to Stay Motivated During Quarantine"

"To conserve products and energy, I've cut my daily skin-care routines down to a few key steps. These days I rely more on weekly masks and treatments to keep my skin free of breakouts, dullness, and dryness. For one day during the week, I set a reminder to apply my favorite at-home glycolic peel by Sobel Skin Rx during my nightly skin-care routine. It only takes a couple of extra minutes but keeps dead skin cells and extra oil at bay."


"Cosmo's Holy-Grail Beauty Awards"

"If you're ready to take on skincare like a pro, look no further than this 30% glycolic acid peel that will clear away dullness-inducing dead skin cells, help unblock pores, and boost your natural radiance in just two minutes."


"I’m Using Sobel Skin RX’s At-Home Peel to Keep My Glow Until My Next Facial"

"With widespread social distancing and the temporary closure of salons, spas, and dermatology offices, getting a facial right now is basically impossible. Admittedly, the more time I spend avoiding the outside world, the less motivated I feel to keep my twice-daily skin-care routine. Small but stubborn pimples keep popping up across my chin in stress breakouts, and the sudden lack of sun exposure makes me hyperaware of how dull my skin could become in the following weeks.

Thankfully, I've got one must-have product that's keeping my skin in shape while I don't have access to treatments from professionals and am limiting the number of beauty products I order online. That's the 30% Glycolic Acid Peel by Sobel Skin Rx, a brand from New York City dermatologist Howard Sobel."

"How to Apply Your Skincare Products in the Right Order (And Why It Can Make a Difference for Your Skin)"

"I firmly believe (no pun intended!) that most people will benefit from a nightly retinoid as their main skin treatment. "Retinoid" is an umbrella term referring to the family of vitamin A derivatives—which includes retinol, retinol esters, retinaldehyde, retinoic acid esters and prescription treatments like tretinoin. These ingredients are best applied at night, away from UV light. Sobel Skin Rx 4.5% Retinol Night Treatment contains retinol and hydroxypinacolone retinoate, a non-irritating, next-gen retinoic acid ester."

The 30% Glycolic Acid Peel – an at-home facial peel that retexturizes, exfoliates and brightens skin in minutes without compromising the epidermal-dermal barrier."


"Can new high-percentage skincare creams actually reverse aging?"

"In the endless quest for “makeup optional” skin, many beauty fiends seek out potions jacked up with the highest levels of active ingredients available. But slathering them on can backfire, as most complexions can’t handle a mega-dose of glycolic acid, vitamin C or retinol without rebelling. Indeed, red, itchy and flaky skin is typically the result of pushing the percentage envelope too far.

But renowned New York City-based dermatologist Howard Sobel believes he’s found a way around all that pesky irritation, thanks to the patent-pending delivery system in his new, superpotent skin-care line: Sobel Skin Rx."

"I’ve been tracking doctors’ skin-care brands — which often contain AHAs and active vitamin C — ever since they first appeared in the late 1980s. There’s now a bonanza of such safe and effective high-potency product lines out there. Even so, and not to mince words, I wasn’t expecting how extra-excellent and state-of-the-art the New York dermatologist Howard Sobel’s recently introduced comprehensive Sobel Skin Rx collection is. The key ingredients — glycolic acid, retinol, hyaluronic acid — need no introduction. But their diesel-powered formulations, buffered for gentleness, feel and look gorgeous on my skin. Most surprising for me was the result of a particular combo from the line: Start with the wrinkle-reducing, pore-minimizing, hydration-restoring, maximum-strength 15% Niacinamide Gel Serum."

"I couldn’t tell you the last time I used a true face cream. For years I applied oil as the final step to my overall skincare routine. I never found lotion to be nearly as moisturizing as an oil until I started using the hyralonic option from Dr. Sobel. I really love the entire line, but the face cream continues to be one of my favorites. I find it super hydrating without being too heavy."

Dark spots fade nearly overnight and skin tone is over all more even, in a snap. Plus, the packaging is recyclable which just cannot be overlooked these days."

It can hold a thousand times its weight in water, and immediately makes skin look plumper and more hydrated. “Hyaluronic acid is a great natural hydrator for the skin and works to draw in and lock in moisture,” says Dr. Sobel. “The ingredient is a potent natural humectant that helps your skin hold water, so it looks smoother [immediately] and will only improve over time.”

Two nights per week post-cleanse, I plop some of this solution on a cotton pad, swipe it all my face, and let it sit for just one minute before rinsing it off. The acid it contains is a powerful tool against discoloration and acne, but it can irritate the hell out of your skin if left on too long or used too often.
