This retinol is the real deal ! I love waking up glowy and extra firmed! Thank you Cody and Crystal for making products that are easy to use and are game changers.
This retinol has faded my age spots so quickly, and feels so great on my skin! It’s so effective, but it’s also gentle. My skin looks much better already, and I am only on my first bottle. I will always order this product!
I have been using these products for over three months now and my skin has drastically improved. I no longer use anything other than the cleanser, hydrating mask, and retinol, my skin is brighter and I no longer have breakouts. This line is absolutely incredible.
The very best retinol you can buy. I alternate this retinol with Cody and Crystal's glycolic acid every other night and my skin is fabulous. And I can put this retinol on my neck all the way down to my ta tas lol. Yea!! Thank you again Crystal and Cody for another amazing product.
Montarbo Skincare products have made a huge difference for me! I use the advanced exfoliator, vitamin b&c serum, and the retinol. I've been using them for about 9 months. My skin feels clearer and brighter. I've had stubborn whiteheads (some for years!) that have gone away. I still get the occasional breakout, but much less than before. I also used to have patches of dry skin around my nose and temples and those have basically disappeared. I've had two facials at their location and both were such great experiences. The advice I was given about my skincare routine in general was also very helpful. I can't recommend Montarbo products or the team highly enough!
This works so much better for me than retinoic acid (tretinoin) which is too drying for me. One of the many Montarbo products I love using.
Using this and elixir together at night, and glycolic in the morning, has made a huge difference in my skin…..
I’m in love with this product! Not only this product but every other product I have tried from this skin Care line!! Thank you Cody!❤️
Love this product and love that I can email Cody with all my skin questions!!! He’s the best!!!!
My skin has never looked better!!! I love love this product!!
I had pretty prominent wrinkles are my forehead & now they’re very faint. Same with crows feet. You can’t see them as much as before. I’m definitely impressed!
I absolutely love this product! My skin has never looked better! I definitely use a decent amount 3 pumps. But in the end it’s worth it! I love Cody, I love his products! I’m a happy girl!
Amazing!! Worth every penny!!
Started the Retinol on 4/1:/21. So far have not had any flaking or peeling. Skin mildly red, however, always have that issue. Hoping that maybe three months with continued use will see some changes to my skin. Been using every other day. Emailed customer service several times with questions. Always answered me back in very timely manner. Exceptional, friendly, and professional every time. I have no problem highly recommending this brand and their products and services!!! I am 65+ years.
Amazing & perfect. I will only use Codyâ€™s retinol and I also use many of his other products. I personally am willing to spend extra money on my body skin, so I purchase several of these at a time. Cody wrote a note on my order recommending I use the lactic acid on my body before applying the retinol, for best effect. Omg I am glowing from head to toe.
I found out about Codyâ€™s products from his YouTube channel and I trust anything he says. Looking at his skin and his knowledge I will buy any of his products. I switched from retin-a to Codyâ€™s retinol and I specifically went with his because it has the highest percentage of retinol that I can find on the internet(3%) so it is well worth it. And I am an amazon prime person but nothing on amazon compares to this retinol. Itâ€™s a staple for both me and my mom. Iâ€™m grateful for Codyâ€™s products and his beautiful spirit as well. LOVE

I have fairly dry skin and found that Retin A was just too drying for me. But this retinol Cream is just the ticket. I am using it on the backs of my hands also and along with Codyâ€™s vitamin C serum and brightening my discoloration and brown spots are almost gone. I love the way my skin feels even at the end of the day, smooth and soft and so nice for one in my early 70â€™s.
This is much better than using retin A it don't dry skin out as pad. I think its moisturizing. I use all Cody products I love each one. People tell me how good my skin looks I'm proud of it. I'm continually putting something on face to help look n feel better!
This is the best stuff, truly. My skin is smooth, people compliment it and my fine lines are pretty much absent. This is a must have for everyone!
this is excellent, lightly exfoliates, but no dryness or irritation. A definite keeper, looking forward to trying other products from the line. Thanks for sharing so much wonderful information on U tube.
Using Retinol A is drying to the skin but I don't have that with this product. Montarbo products are the best I trust it on my face and to me thatâ€™s a big deal for sure! Mr Montarbo give his advice on using his products and to have that at my fingertips at any time is worth a lot. I believe Iâ€™ve used all his products Iâ€™m glad I found him. I get compliments on my skin often it glows itâ€™s healthy looking.
I came across Cody and his YouTube channel while I was using Retin-A and was immediately impressed by his authenticity and knowledge of skincare especially o black skin. Fast forward a couple of years later and I decided to try his Vitamin C serum which is literally liquid Gold :). I have now been using the Illuminating lift cleanser, lactic brightening treatment, precision brightening treatment and retinol at night and the vitamin C in the morning. My skin immediately transformed after a couple of weeks and I am now able to finally get my skin tone back and clear skin. The only other time Iâ€™ve seen my skin like this is when I was on Accutane and everything came back after use. I just moved to Southern CA from the East coast and will be stopping in for some peels to take my skincare to the next level. Thank you Cody!
Do yourself a favor, never run out!
Cody is a gift from the skin Gods lol! So thrilled to finally find my go to skin guru and even more honored to purchase his products for life!!! My skin has never been so glowy, youthful, firm and the lines and fine wrinkles (especially around my eyes) have been diminishing; its only been less than 30 days whohoooo!!! Happy Mothers Day to meeeeee
Omgosh, I love this retinol!! I've used so many different retinols and Retin-A over the last several years. So far this is my favorite! It's not irritating and doesn't cause redness but at the same time I can feel and see that it's working. Occasionally, I will get some very slight shedding of skin, mostly around my mouth, which I don't mind because it's so minor and I'm assured that it's truly working. I've been using this retinol for the last several months, 5 nights per week. I can not live without this product!!
When everyone was hyping the spinning brush and Cody said put that down and use your fingers I noticed a change. My skin was less irritated and responded quicker to products I was introducing at the time. As we age and our bodies change the issues we didnâ€™t have before get difficult to understand and deal with. Everyone needs Cody, he understands this skin business! I know it sounds corny but my skin says it all. For years I wasnâ€™t able to go anywhere without a ton of makeup, now my glow doesnâ€™t need hiding honey, itâ€™s this product line that did the heavy lifting!

Oh my goodness! I have been meaning to write and say thank you so very much. First of all, for responding in such a quick manner when i asked you questions on your products, secondly, for shipping my merchandise as quickly as you did, and last, but definitely not least, i just want to say that i have NEVER tried a product on my face that i have been more happy with. EVERYTHING is just as you promised if not so much more. I LOVE it!!! Keep doing what you are doing cause you are the bomb
I have been using this for a months now and I can truly say that it fades my skin discoloration and my skin is just so smooth to touch. I am happy with the result.
I have been seeing a dermatologist for years and YEARS! My dermatologist has prescribed me everything from the rolls royce of retinoid creams to antibiotics to hormones to help with my acne. Every single dr. prescribed retinoid gel or cream has left my skin super irritated, dry, red, flaky AND oily and me still broken out and with skin in pain. I started to see Cody to see if adding facials/peels would help with my acne and melasma (thanks to hormonal imbalance and sun). My skin was in pretty poor shape. It's because of dr. prescribed treatments leaving me high and dry (literally) that I was so skeptical about Cody's advice and products. But W O W!!!! I stopped using the dr. prescribed treatments and started doing just as Cody stated and I'm 1,000% amazed. I have been using Montarbo Vitalizing Vitamin C 12% serum for awhile, but now I'm also alternating -- 1 night going to bed with Montarbo professional repairing retinol cream and the next night going to be with Montarbo Illuminating Lift Glycolic cream. It hasn't been too harsh, too drying, too irritating. I haven't really needed to physically exfoliate at all. My skin is a lot brighter and more even toned and my acne is all starting to clear and I don't feel anything new coming up. I almost can't believe it. I've been so heartbroken by doctors saying sorry, there's nothing more I can prescribe you. But I have to say Montarbo skincare has been better than anything a dr. has prescribed and I'm actually seeing results. Real results. My skin is no longer dry /flaky/red/splocthy AND greasy all at the same time. It's so much more even and just normal looking and actually feels good. It's not so sensitive and painful all the time. I still have a touch of acne, but I think with continued use, it will be gone in no time. I'm completely amazed by how well Montarbo products are working for me and what I had previously thought was a lost cause of skin.
I just cannot do without this. I keep seeing results and new benefits from Codys products. This retinol is gentle on my skin and just does wonders honestly. Cody will drop whatever he's doing and personally assist you if you're having problems with your order, heâ€™s totally badass!
I have been a retinol fan for a long time. 5-6 years. Daily. Used a couple different ones. Was getting so-so results. Nothing that was noticeable. So when I found this I wasnâ€™t really expecting much. But OMG my skin is so much better. Itâ€™s tighter itâ€™s brighter. My melasma and sun damage is diminishing. I know nothing works overnight but after a couple weeks of using this I am only excited to see what a few months will do. Been struggling with sun damage a long time. Tried almost everything out there. This is amazing. Love it! Thanks Cody.
The name says it all. I had no idea my skin needed this product. After watching Cody explain about taking a lesser strength retinol if itâ€™s your first time, I did exactly that and when I was ready for a buffered product I switched to this one and Iâ€™ never looked back since! Watch Codyâ€™s videos and learn a ton before buying blindly, your skin will thank you.
