I have been using Retacnyl cream (which is also tretinoin) 0.05% for the past 6 weeks and I've learnt that it's best to apply a small pea. In fact, less is more in my experience. Once I start to apply a large pea, my skin starts to peel and get really irritated and red. I apply half a pea nowadays, and I know that the tretinoic acid is stil working because I still notice large amounts of dead skin when I wake up in the morning. All the best for your journey with Retin-A!

use. The human body adapts 1 day at a time. It will be up to your skin to decide when that tolerance happens.
That's why they say use a pea size amount at the lowest dose possible.
The more you use and the higher the dose, the faster your skin will develop a tolerance to the product
thus becoming ineffective for your skin.
If you use less product it may go either way. For the better or for the worse.
