Description

Retinol Rapid Repair & Dark Spot Treatment is a dark spot’s worst enemy and your new bestie if you struggle with annoying or stubborn skin discolorations. The secret weapon in this formula is of course, Retinol, which goes to work to exfoliate and enhance the look of skin tone, texture, breakouts and post-breakout marks and get you on the road to smooth, glowing skin. There’s also Kojic Acid to target hyperpigmentation and 5% Niacinamide to improve the look of dark spots, aging skin, and redness caused by skin irritants. Also features our ClearTone Advanced Technology® that works overtime to reveal a healthier and more even-looking complexion.

After cleansing, apply to the full face, avoiding the eye area. Begin by applying every other night. After 2-3 weeks, increase to applying every night if tolerated. It is normal for skin dryness and peeling to occur for the first 2-3 weeks of use. If experiencing irritation, reduce application to every third night and gradually increase to every other night. You can even use this treatment to target specific dark spots by alternating every other application between the full face and directly to the dark spot itself. And because dryness is normal, it is essential to always follow with a moisturizer. In the daytime, always protect skin with a broad spectrum SPF 30 or higher and limit sun exposure while using this product.

Aesthetician Tip: If just starting out or your skin is dryer, we recommend mixing this formula with a moisturizer to dilute the strength. We suggest using our Even Tone Barrier Repair Ceramide Cream.

Q: Hi, I often get acne on my face for which I'm using Differin Gel since 2 months. I also have a lot of acne marks and scars. I would love to try this product. Could I use it along with Differin gel using alternative nights? Please advise. Thanks

submitted by Beats - 4 years ago
  • A: We would recommend using one of our 3-In 1 Cleansing Bars. All of our cleansing bars contain our ClearTone Advanced Technology, which works to address and correct the appearance of hyperpigmentation and blemishes. Each cleansing bar is formulated for different skin types. If you have oily skin with dark marks or blemish-prone skin, we recommend that you use the **Clear Skin Cleansing Bar** to improve the appearance of your skin. If you don’t have oily skin or blemishes, but have discolorations, or want a brighter and more even-toned complexion, we recommend that you use the **Even Tone Cleansing Bar**. Someone with dry or combination skin who wants to improve the appearance of dark spots or blemish-prone skin should use the **Combination Skin Cleansing Bar**. We also recommend that you use our cleansing bars along with our various products formulated to address your blemish concerns.

Q: Does this work for dark arm pits?

submitted by Buzzed - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello! The Retinol Rapid Repair could be too strong for that area however if you would like to try it we would recommend only using it once out the week in your night routine followed up with a moisturizer to prevent irritations. To be sure you can use it in the area do a spot check with it in the area to see if it get irritated or not before you apply it. Also, It will be best to use the Even Tone Cleansing Bar in the area to cleanse twice daily to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone in the desired area which is way gentle. For further communication please email us at support@urbanskinrx.com we will love to help you find the correct products that are suitable for you and with any questions or concerns you may have. :)

One of my holy grail products! I use it as a spot treatment and my dark spots are cleared within 2 weeks. I do NOT recommend putting it all over your face - that’s a terrible idea lol. But using a dab on dark marks really does work, I have extremely sensitive skin and I love using this when needed. Also works on body scars with efficiency! Always moisturize your face after using and use sunscreen, remember if you have sensitive skin do not put it all over your face, they really should market it as a targeted spot treatment. I only use it at night to prevent risk of it reacting with the sun. And layer castor oil over it! I get compliments all the time on my skin and I must say it’s because of this! I just love it, for those stubborn darks marks/rosacea. The packaging tells you it’s very strong, and for good reason. I hope this helps someone.

I’m hoping this review will help someone! I’ve had this product for a little over a month and just started seeing results a couple days ago (unlike others who have been saying they see results starting at 10 days/2 weeks) Let me tell you why - spot treating! Backstory: I’ve used pretty strong products on my skin over the years so I wasn’t nervous about how this would irritate my skin. I started off using the product all over my face every day, and then upped to twice a day and was seeing ZERO results. So last week I decided to just focus on my dark spots instead of my whole face. When I tell you I saw results in 3 days?! No lie. If you’re trying to target specific dark spots like hyperpigmentation from pimples/acne, SPOT TREAT. Otherwise it’s not going to work for you. It’s kind of like how you have to use hydroquinone, very targeted, otherwise your whole face will lighten along with the dark spots and you will never see results. I hope this helps to anyone who’s starting or anyone on the journey who was just as confused as I was as to why I wasn’t seeing any difference!

Target Mom Shopper - 4 months ago
I received a sample of this in the Target beauty section of the store. It came with zero warning, save for the tiniest print on the back of the tube that it "could cause peeling". I applied this lightly to my face ONE time. My face peeled in giant skin shreds like a snake, to the point where going out in public was embarrassing. No matter how many times I gently removed the shredding skin, it reappeared, even under makeup. My face burned and was bright red in the cheek area and under my chin. The skin under my chin opened up in fissures and still stings and is not closed a week later. I will not be surprised if the skin under my chin is scarred. This should be a prescription ONLY strength product that comes with an information card on possible reactions. Buyer BEWARE!

This bottle is saving my skin! I have hyperpigmentation/melasma and I’ve tried so many OTC products that don’t work! Even Musely did not work at all for my stubborn spots. Urban RX is the real deal and you cannot beat their price point. I also use their even tone bar/and Vit C serum and SPF for the day. Only use this retinol at night and your skin will thank you! Freckles and raised skin are just flaking off. Can’t recommend it enough, I hope they never change the formula.

This review was collected as part of a promotion. I've never tried anything from this brand before, and this product was a good start! I don't have too much texture on my face but do get dark spots spread out here and there caused by post-acne. This treatment has visibly improved the look of them and helped lightened those darker areas for me in just a week and a half! I love using this on those problem areas when a dark spot pops up.

This review was collected as part of a promotion. This product works fast and is effective! Because I have sensitive skin, I can only use it 1x a week to get the results I am looking for with fading my dark spots. So for others who have sensitive skin as well, that is what I suggest doing to avoid dryness!

WARNING…If you have sensitive skin, do not use this product, but otherwise this product works! This is the only product that actually works for me. I was scared to use it at first because of the bad reviews, but I’m glad I gave it a chance. My skin peeled, burned, itched and became more sensitive after I started using this product. Everything I was putting on my face burned. I had to stop using my face soap and use Ivory soap to wash my face because that was the only soap that won’t burn my face. I was willing to go through the process and I’m glad I did. I will continue to use until I’m satisfied with the results. They have a lifelong customer with me!

1 reply from Urban Skin Rx team - 11 months ago
We are sorry to hear that this has happened to you. When a rash forms, that usually means you are allergic to one or more ingredients in the product and should discontinue usage. At this time we recommend only using an ultra mild gentle cleanser, a nourishing moisturizer, and a 100% mineral SPF, as a chemical sunscreen can lead to further irritation while your skin heals from the adverse reactions that have occurred. Please refrain from any harsh scrubbing or products that contain any acids as this could further agitate the skin. To further soothe and alleviate any irritation, we also recommend applying cooled 100% organic Aloe Vera gel to the skin. This will also add to improving the skin's moisture barrier and ensuring the skin's natural turnover rate is consistent. For any other questions or concerns please contact us, as we are always happy to assist.
