This product is both effective but also gentle on the skin. The squalane base absorbs nicely so you dont feel like you are left with a heavy oil on your face. Would highly recommend for anyone who is wanting a slightly higher % retionol.... read more

It started to change the smell very quickly and that happened with the 2 bottles I was using. I am not sure if the packaging makes it unstable or what is the issue but it was not usable after quite a short time. I also did not see any results with this as I had with the granactive retinoid emulsion.... read more

I've always wanted to try a retinol product, but I was scared to try it because of its supposed irritating effects on the skin. But when I did my research, I stumbled upon this online. And I do not regret buying this because this is one of my holy grails. First of all, the formulation is amazing. Since it is an advance form of retinol (according to Deciem's website), it doesn't cause any irritation whatsoever. Also, the fact that it has Squalane means it balances the oil production of my face, which is great since I have an oily-resilient skin type. I use this for anti-aging and to help in the removal of my Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). And it helps with my acne too. I pair this with The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% at night, and this one of the best combinations in my skincare routine.... read more

During the first few weeks of using this, I had a minor purging on my face. Small whiteheads appeared around my lips, but the consistent usage of this product made it disappear.... read more
