I’ve always really liked this product, I’ve alternated it with other retinols. I’ve found that in my experience, this one causes less irritation than similarly priced products. I would definitely recommend
I bought this product based on reviews and it didn’t disappoint. Initially, your skin will feel tight and you will go through the “ purging” process but it’s not as intense as other retinoids I’ve used. However, it does do the job.
This stuff has done wonders for my skin! Helps with texture, discoloration, and so many other things without making me super dry! A staple in my nighttime routine!
I really like this brand and try to buy when it is on sale. It does cause some dryness but I use quite a bit of moisturizer as well which seems to help. A little goes a long way and I use only 3x per week, alternating with an exfoliant.
This retinol is the best I’ve ever tried. It feels so good going on. My skin looks more even. It is looking better day after day.
