Pleasantly Surprised

I used this serum for the first time last night with the Hydrating Moisturiser cream from The Ordinary range. I did use the 1% because my skin is acclimatised to retinols and I could see the difference in my skin this morning for example, softness, hydrated, clear and luminous. I do currently have a break out and the serum appears to have reduced the redness and calmed the skin, I also noticed an improvement with the wrinkle depth in general. I did not find the product to be oily but perhaps this is because I have mature, dry skin. I am looking forward to reassessing the results at four to eight weeks of use. The thing to remember about this serum is to keep it in the fridge after opening and to return it after each use.

Family use of Retinol A

Its an oily product so definately for evening. Skin overall has improved with its use and I have seen a signficant difference in acne for my daughter when used in combination with the zinc. My son hates all products on his face - is struggling to use it but when he did consistently his acne improved immediately
