Nim, are you sure you and Chris K are not in cahoots?

I use that exact cream as well (since 10 years). I get it from India directly as my husband travels frequently to India.
The price in India is 2 US$.
There is even a .01 % cream which I tried but didn´t like too much. Too harsh. I also get my Glyco- A from India and some other stuff.

good to hear you've been using it for 10 years - you must like it? But if the .01% is too harsh , then wouldn't the .05% be harsher still? Do you mean .1%?

I'm in the UK and once bought tretinoin 0.1% from a seller on ebay who was based in India. Ebay then stopped him trading but he e-mailed me direct to say he could still supply direct if paid through paypal. His service is OK and he charged me $20 recently for tretinoin cream 0.05% with expiry of date of November 2018, price includes postage. I can supply the contact e-mail address is anyone is interested and Miss J approves. I guess he could get other strengths etc if requested.

Ooops, yes, You are right. I tried the 0.1% . I wouldn´t mind using it but it makes my face peel a bit which is difficult as I am a teacher. Maybe I could use it during my holidays or so.
But it is so inexpensive that I can use the 0.05% every night and on my hands too. I would say that the effects are only visible after a long time. I read that it is best in combination with Glyco-A in the morning.
