Retinol is definitely πŸ†— I've got sensitive skin & I'm using these 2 on different parts of my face and neck. I began with once a week for a month. 5th week onwards, I've been using twice weekly. I've not experienced any irritation or purging, thankfully ☺️

Retinol totally can be fine for sensitive skin! Usually comes down to the strength and how you layer it. You build a tolerance to retinol over time so when starting to use it you want a low percentage. Plus, to avoid irritation you can try a product that you layer after your moisturizer so you have a buffer. I personally am obsessed with the 0.5% retinol in squalane from The Ordinary 😍 a simple, gentle formula that I use at the end of my routine as a finishing oil. No sensitivity, but great results! They even have a 0.2% (which can be hard to find) as an even safer option. Then they have a stronger formula if you find yourself wanting more oomph later 😜

I think this retinol okay for sensitive skin. You can test patch, start slowly, start low %, enought hydrating, and dont forget sunscreen. And if affraid to try serums you van start with retinol toner.
