This is a good beginner retinol but might be a little too weak for those, who have been using retinol for a while before this. What is great about this product is that it doesn’t dry your skin like some other retinols do (again, this is a lower percent retinol - retinyl palmitate 0,5%). Overall I liked this product, but was surprised with the smell. I can’t say it’s necessarily bad, maybe im just used to my skincare not smelling like anything. It reminds me of kefir smell (smells a bit like dairy to me).
I introduced it because it is mild. It did not cause any irritation but I don’t know if it worked. I will now proceed to a higher concentration and another form of retinol to see if my skin tolerates it. All in all it is a good for someone who have never used retinols before
I have mixed feelings about this serum. I am using it for two weeks, and in general my skin looks better, there are less comedones and pores looks smaller, but I also had a few huge inflamed acne which I usually don’t have. And I suppose that the serum caused it. I hope, my skin will adapt to this serum soon, and I will not get more acne.
If it is excellent on the third day you will see the difference in texture. To know if it really works for stains I had to wait at least a month to use it every day. But as is well known, retinol is a guarantee and this one is great.
Very good retinol for beginners. The skin does not react strongly, but the effect is noticeable. Usually my skin turns red after retinol, but here either due to concentration or due to the presence of colendula in the composition of such a reaction is not
