Vitacid tretinoin cream is used to treat acne or other skin problems as determined by your dermatologist. It works partly by keeping skin pores clear.

Vitacid® cream is used to treat fine wrinkles, dark spots, or rough skin on the face caused by the damaging rays of the sun.

It works by lightening the skin, replacing older skin with newer skin, and slowing down the way the body removes skin cells that may have been harmed by the sun.

Vitacid tretinoin cream works best when used within a skin care program that includes protecting the treated skin from the sun.

Vitacid® cream applied for I-III level topical acne treatment with many comedones, papules, and pustules.

    I’ve been using this product for 20 years and people always comment on how good my skin looks. My sister (who doesn’t use it) is always asking me why I don’t have any wrinkles. Of course, I don’t smoke and always use sunscren, rain or shine. But it’s also due in part to the use of this little miracle worker. I only use it at night, and every other day.

    It works. My skin’s tone, texture and overall smoothness has improved a lot. Sun spots have faded and some are just gone.

    I’ve been using this product for the last 3 years and can’t say enough about it. I’ve never had a problem with acne, however I use it for age spots on my face and chest. I’m now 50 yrs old and since I’ve started using Tretinoin cream I have people guess my age at 36. I have no wrinkles on my face at all! I recommend this product to anyone that wants to fight aging!

    I started using Tretinoin Vitacid cream about 2 months ago, and it has slowly started to change the appearance and texture of my skin for the better.

    Well this took quite a bit of trial & error to get comfortable with. If you can hold out in the first six weeks, then you will start seeing some progress. Watch your sun and wind exposure & also try to stay away from any harsh facial washes. This has really helped dark spots and fine lines along with acne. Sun screen is just vital with this. For me the side effects are worth the benefits.

    I’ve been using tretinoin creams on and off for years in different strengths and brands mainly for acne, for the last few years I have been using Vitacid tretinoin cream in 0.1% strength so hence my review landing here. This is the only stuff that can clear my skin and help with pigmentation, downside is the flakies but I’ve learnt not to use this coming up to an event where I need to look good. I don’t use this every single night either now, since starting products I haven’t needed to, helped my skin a lot but to get my skin to be on its best behavior I had to incorporate a tretinoin cream again, also now as I’m getting older I also wanted to use it to try and keep wrinkles at bay. I use this about every 3 to 4 nights now applying to all of my face, or if my skin comes up with a few spots either during that time of the month or from being overworked/stressed I’ll use it consecutively for 2 or 3 nights, I still get the peeling but I don’t get so much redness or sensitivity as what I used to get when I used this every night. I use sunblock 30+ every day whether raining or sunny as well since its a must when using any tretinion creams, and I’m hoping the combination of tretinoin and sunscreen lets me age gracefully so fingers crossed.

    My hyperpigmentation has diminished, the deep forehead lines are no more and my nasolabial folds have lifted. My skin hydrates itself now and has become quite oily, as it was in my teens. I no longer use moisturiser, just a Vitamin C serum and a Hyaluronic Acid gel. I also do dermarolling which seems to heighten the effectiveness of the product. I always have a glow to my skin, although I’m almost 50, I have no lines or wrinkles.

    At first when I took Vitacid tretinoin I was very skeptical. I had been prescribed it many years but never seemed to use it regularly. It was only until my mid thirties which I am now that I decided to give it a good try. My skin was uneven, discolored and dull. I have been using tretinoin regularly for about two weeks and can already see a big difference. My skin has become very smooth. The discoloration has faded some and along with hydroquinone and cocoa butter I am achieving maximum results. I did experience some mild side effects of peeling but this is just the medication doing its job. I lightly exfoliate three times a week and everything is kosher.

    I started out applying it every two days, and have now been using it nightly for about a month now. The only way I will apply it on my skin is by mixing in a pea-sized amount with my night moisturizer, which helps make the transition phase (when your skin isn’t used to it yet and starts peeling and become a little irritated) less awful.

    REALLY WORKS!!! Delivery quite annoying

    Micheal Maxwell

    My skin looks brighter, glowing and fresh and firm! So don’t throw away your little miracle workers yet for another product. Just add tretinoin to your regime. I use 0.1% because .05% really didn’t do anything to my skin.

    Ramon Manning

    Prescription retinoids are a sound investment that works.

  13. 4 out of 5

    Brandon Brock

    I use Renova generic Revize (from okdermo) which is .02% tretinoin and have been thrilled with the results – lines and wrinkles noticeably reduced or eliminated. I had tried Vitacid 0.05% a few years ago, but had to stop using it because it made my skin dry and flaky and even when I used it only 2 to 3 times a week my skin could never tolerate it. I agree with reviewers who say prescription tretinoin is the best anti-aging product available (and dermatologists agree!). The prescription product is indeed quite expensive but worth every penny!

    Chester Thomas

    Highly, whole-heartedly recommended. If you think it costs too much, just think of all the dollars you spend on other stuff that really didn’t work at all.

  15. 4 out of 5

    Carlton R

    GOOD WORD OF ADVICE: ALWAYS use sunscreen during the day when using this product (I use okdermo’s sunscreen gels. which has been really compatible with my acne-prone skin), and stay out of the sun.

    Gene Horton

    This tretinoin 0.1% cream is a good alternative to the prescription ones, and the price is very good! Thank you okdermo!

    I experienced lots of peeling for several weeks, but the new skin which emerged from beneath, was clear, hydrated and supple.

    Jack Pittman

    A PRESCRIPTION GRADE retinoid product should be the core of your skincare regime for anti-aging!

  19. 4 out of 5


    The transition process was a little rough: my skin would occasionally become really dry and flakey for a few days in a row which made wearing make-up impossible. But I stuck through it (it wasn’t too bad to be honest, you just have to get over not having excellent skin for a few days), and am now experiencing fewer breakouts, a decrease in their severity, and more even skin tone. My recommendation just do not purchase the strongest one first, start from 0.025% if you never used it and unfamiliar with it. God bless!

    I’m using Tretinoin with the Blender up to three times per week at night and my skin is now younger than it was before I started.

  21. 5 out of 5

    Leslie Hunt

    Using Tretinoin requires patience as the skin may look worse before it looks better, cell turn over is rapid, so there may be lots of peeling and redness, but the end result is worth it. Always use a high factor sunblock, regardless of the season, when using Tretinoin.

    Preston H

    As someone else said on another review, nothing beats good skin, and I can even get away, at my age, with wearing no foundation, just blush and concealer for my dark (hereditary) circles. Can’t recommend this product enough. It’s a miracle worker.

    The .1% cream is what I’ve been using since I’ve moved up from the 0.05%. I’ve been using tretinoin for a year and moved up strengths on my one year mark. I can honestly say that I immediately noticed major smoothness and more clarity in my skincare when I moved up to the .1%. Granted maybe too because I’m using the cream (I never used the cream prior, always a gel). The cream penetrates deeper, making skin moisturzied, hydrated, a little oily. Or maybe the .1% is just stronger I dunno. It’s towards the end of the summer as I write this and where I live it’s humid so I’ll finish out the tube of cream. But when it gets cold I’ll start on the .1% cream version. My overall thoughts: I’m 42 years old and I had pretty decent skin before staring Retin a (Vitacid) and I feel that me starting Retin a has made my skin THAT much better! I would highly recommend it! I use it 4 days a week and on the nights I don’t I use my Lactic acid and my skin looks amazing! So pleased!

    I got my tube of tretinoin 0.05 cream from okdermo store by dermatologists recommendation. The first two weeks had been hell! Peeling, lots of clog pores and angry pimples. I’m now on my 3rd week and i only have one pimple on my cheek. This stuff is amazing! Just have lots of patience.

    Bradley Peterson

    Let me begin saying that before I used Tretinoin .1% cream, I had pretty severe acne. Like it was getting to the point I would be depressed. In May I began using this product. The first two weeks were hell… HUGE pimples and I was getting upset, but that’s a good thing. It means Tretinoin is doing it’s job. After about 6 weeks of this stuff, I noticed a big improvement. I have acne scars basically.. everywhere. All down my chin, jaw line, forehead, it sucks. And I can’t imagine how bad it would be now if I hadn’t have had used Tretinoin!

    Now that I’m working with a cleaner canvas, so to speak, the anti-aging products that I used to use that took a while to see a noticeable difference now is finally sinking into my skin and really working!

    I’m 19 years old and I have SEVERE acne. We’re talking about TONS of cystic acne that leave nasty pitted scars and discoloration. I went to the doctors and they prescribed this to me. Bought Vitacid cream 0.05% tretinoin on okdermo. This is a miracle!!! After a couple weeks I’m definitely seeing progress. However do be warned that this can dry out your skin a lot. My skin was peeling like CRAZZY to the point that I didn’t want to be seen by anyone. However, do not stop. Your skin is just adjusting to it. Also, make sure to apply sunscreen during the day because this makes your skin sensitive to the sun. Although this cream takes time to work, the results are definitely worth it. TRUST ME. 🙂

  36. 5 out of 5


    I started taking Vitacid Tretinoin 0.1% cream. At first, I was peeling very badly and my skin got soooo dark. It was almost blue as I am already naturally dark skinned. During this experience, I was using every day and also rubbing in the cream into my skin. However, the Dermatologist informed me to use this cream every other day and also moisturize properly. I get results by washing with white gentle soap only and moisturize my face when it’s slightly damped. After about 10 mins, I put the Vitacid over the surface of the skin and leave it there. Two minutes later, I put more moisturizer on the skin. I used Aveeno moisturizer but I guess a good moisturizer is all that is needed. I love this product and would recommend same.

    love this stuff. Had some.bad acne.on my cheeks and.not.only that up but it is taking care of the scarring acne left behind as well. Skin might get a little itchy or inflamed when you first use it but that’s how it works so if you’re patient and follow the instructions (not intense sunlight, use sunscreen) you should be fine. Definitely would/ will repurchase

    I’ve been using this Tretinoin .1% cream for going on two years. I use it for anti-aging, not acne, and it works. I started with: dry skin, some texture inconsistencies, fine lines around my eyes and obvious nasolabial lines, uneven tone and some sun damage spots that were a result of lots of beach time in FL w/o using sunscreen.

    Howard Bowers

    The effects are more dramatic than any cream, lotion, or serum I’ve ever used, from the drugstore variety right up to the $250 creams and lotions. I know now that it’ll be a permanent step in my skincare regime from here on end.

    Cannot live without this cream, okdermo skincare is reliable company and thanks for your coupons!

  42. 5 out of 5


    Vitacid is generic Retin A – the cream formula, and the tube lasts about 3 months for me. well worth it! i am over 40 and have battled acne since my teens. tried almost everything out there with little or no results- so i finally went and asked for this. it has made a HUGE difference in my skin. i did not go through the purging people talk about – my skin is very tough and very oily, i saw slight flakes but nothing like what others have said. i do use this on my face, neck and chest, as i had bad sun damage on my chest area, and this has made a huge difference in the skin on my chest area. i did experience redness and itching there, but not on my face. i use only a TM but honestly i dont need it, it is just a crutch i think! my skin does not have any wrinkles, but i think a lot of that has to do with the oily skin i have, keeps you looking young! every now and then, right before my period, i may get a pimple or two, but nothing close to the terrible acne i had prior to this cream. i’m so glad i found this product, i can not imagine not having it. I have not tried the gel version, i think i would like that better than the cream, due to my ultra oily skin, but this stuff is great.

    Jody Mason

    Yes, the initial stages are tough, itchy, dry, burning skin. Totally worth it. Yes, it’s expensive without insurance, but you have an okdermo 😉 Definitely worth it. I’ve shaved years off of my face without surgery or fillers or lasers. When people hear my age, (almost 37), they almost always comment that I look in my mid to late twenties. I had a restaurant worker tell me just the other day that I looked the same age as her son who is twenty five. Really, lady? My husband is 9 years younger than me, and people are always surprised or shocked when they hear our age difference. I now use it only 3 times per week for maintenance. I started with .05% tretinoin with 4% hydroquinone in a cream sold at okdermo. Then after a few months switched to Tretinoin.1% and haven’t looked back. Tretinoin, SPF, an acid (I use lactic), the proper cleanser and a good moisturizer is IT for me, never mind 12-step skincare routines or products with inflated marketing promises. Having used some of the big names, ANR, La Mer, Neocutis, Skinceuticals, I can say with certainty that Tretinoin Vitacid cream beats them out. My 5 stars!

    Natalia E,

    Cream was sealed in a metal tube, high quality, but shipping is a little long – 3 weeks, thanx anyway

  45. 4 out of 5

    Patrick Santiago

    So yeah, just make sure you wear tons of sunscreen and that you moisturize, because it makes you very vulnerable to UV rays. Also, make sure if you use chemical peels with glycolic acid, use those in the morning, then use tretinoin at night. That’s what works best.. and the duo for me has helped immensely:)

    Nasolabial folds and lines around my eyes have diminished. I look at photos of myself in my late twenties and my skin is better now than it was then. My skin is thicker overall, and softer and more plumped. I do not apply on my eyelids or undereye area because it’s not recommended.

    I wish I had never stopped using it since my teens. I’ve started again, and I’ve been on Retin-A Vitacid cream 0.1% for about 6 months now, and it’s done a miraculous job of clearing away years of buildup, my skin looks smoother and less spotted.
