Retinol 2.5% Serum + Vitamin E

product review positives
✨ This is a 2.5% retinol serum which claims all the benefits of the famous Vitamin A derivative: refine and smooth the skin’s surface, improve uneven skin tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. ✨ Aside from retinol, this serum is formulated with hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. It’s a lightweight serum with a non-greasy feel and is colorless, paraben free, alcohol free, fragrance free, and not tested on animals. ✨While I’ve only been using 1% retinol all this time (over a year), I didn’t experience any irritation or excessive dryness when I switched to this retinol (note that I would not recommend this strength to someone just starting retinol). I’ve been using this every other day for a month already and I’m seeing the same results as my other retinol serum, which costs more than ten times the price of this one. ✨ Retinol is one of the things I can’t live without; the first couple of months were rocky but worth it. I just love how glowy it makes me (swipe for unfiltered, unkempt, unwashed WOLT photo 😆) and generally just keeps my skin in better condition — hydration levels are easier to manage and retain, less breakouts, and faster PIH turnover. I even stopped getting recurring seb derm. Continuous use has also done wonders for fine lines and creases — I’ve successfully vanished some with retinol.
product review negatives
Typical with retinols it peaks around the third month. I usually switch to a different brand but this is the retinoid I know I’ll keep on repurchasing

@24carats @incinabug I suggest starting with 0.25 or 0.5% or even a derivative like granactive retinoid just to start things off and see how your skin responds to it. You can always level up later on

Should I start it with 1% retinol or lesser?
