Geek&Gorgeous or The Ordinary

Hi! I want to start with retinol. My question: should I start with The ordinary 0,2% retinol in squalene, the 0,5% one or the 0,05% retinal from Geek & Gorgeous?

Gonna follow this, cuz I want to know too. Based on Dr. Dray, she mentioned that research only shows that retinol with concentration more than 0.25 produces visible result. At the end, she recommended brands such as differin, neutrogena and cerave for retinol

oh okay, I also learned that the g&g one is retinal and retinal is stronger than retinol because retinol goes to tretinoin in 2 steps and retinal in one step.

wow both are great but start with G&G since retinal minimizes irritation

G&G for the WIN! 🙈🤍 I'm the biggest G&G stan (not even slightly biased) and with their retinal, I had Zero irritation. They have Well formulated products that work wonders and that's why I love them so much 🙈
