So sorry to hear that. But I don't think it's a purging because there's no active ingredients that can lead to purge

I'm pretty sure it's purging. Purging appears on the skin when we use acids or retinoids, you can see purging at first 1-3 months and then your skin gets better so all I can say is "brace yourself, it will get better" :)

There is no purging with tranexamic acid. It’s extremely gentle. It has no active ingredients in it that led to purging like retinol for example. The product doesn’t agree with her skin and she broke out.

TA in general will not cause purging, it may be other ingredients in the products which caused your purging. You can look for other TA products such as TIL one instead of this brand.

Thank you so much for the recommendation, I will look more into this product and hoping I would convince myself to afford another serum after wasting on this current one😭💸

No there shouldn’t be purging with tranexamic acid. There is no ingredient in it that would cause purging, it’s not retinol. Stop using it. It may be that brand or it could be tranexamic acid all together but usually it’s very gentle. I looked at the ingredients and there is a lot of fruit extracts and saffron in it so that might be the reason as to why you broke out.

So i guess I have to ditch this serum T.T, it costs me a lot too, but thank you so much for your detailed explanation💕💕 it convinced me that TA might not be the problem, but it's the other ingredients instead, I have to find other products that contains TA then🙃
