Amazing Intro to Retinoids

I started using this product to help my skin's sensitivity to prescription retinol products. I have had some bad experiences with prescription retinols in the past but need the benefits now more than ever so I thought I'd work my way up. I don't know the efficacy of this - as I am not a dermatologist, but I felt it couldn't hurt to ease my skin into them. I've only been using this product every other night for a little over a month now (I use Niancinamide from The Ordinary on the other nights) and this product (in combinaton w/ Niancinamide) has done WONDERS for my blackheads and hormonal acne - even my fine lines have receded some. The texture of my skin is smoother and more supple. I'm 22 and have just recently become more concerned with preventative/anti-aging, and this retinol hits every mark! It has not irritated my (incredibly sensitive, pale, freckled) skin at all. No redness or dryness. It absorbs quickly and smells a bit like oatmeal if you're into that. I will be moving to nightly application soon since there has been zero bad side effects. I highly recommend this product for sensitive/acne-prone/combination skin, especially if you have had bad experiences w/ products like this in the past. Be sure to remember your daily SPF and moisturizer - as always!
