When I first started using it, I used the FSS Retinol Cream alternately. At that time there was absolutely no purging. After around a month of use, I just felt that this Somethinc Retinol makes purging; Suddenly my skin became rough and there were lots of whiteheads. This condition lasts (on-off) for around a month. Furthermore, this serum actually helps my hormonal acne heal faster.
This serum doesn't make my skin tingling or dry. It feels gentle - but the effect feels faster (compared to the retinol serum I used before) 😍 At first I used it 3x a week, but after the purging period I used it every day.
I feel that this serum helps my acne heal faster and helps smooth the skin texture. When this serum runs out and I take a few days off without using retinol, the texture of my skin immediately feels changed, it's not as smooth as before 😅
For matters of smooth skin, this serum is a kind of booster for the AHA / BHA serum that I use. The result makes the skin really smooth. Meanwhile, when used together with Vit C, the effect is my PIH faded more quickly.
