gentle retinoid

i have sensitive skin. most of skincare i've tried irritates my skin, especially the ones that contains retinoid. But this one is an exception. I see improvement in my skin problems, without any peeling or burning sensation. I pair this with the ordinary buffet and iunik betaglucan.

Gentle product in moderation, but can irritate some skin types

On its own, the product does irritate sensitive skin slightly. I have experienced a bit of peeling, but with proper moisturizing, this is not an issue. Initially I used it on its own every 3 days, but because of my rosacea and skin sensitivity, I decided to use it daily by adding one drop of the granactive retinol emulsion into my daily moisturizer. I plan to add one more drop every two nights by next month. I'm curious to see what my skin would look like after a year of usage.

haven't noticed any results

I was very exited when I found such a nice concentration of retinol for so reasonable price. I have introduced retinol into my skincare routine about year ago. I had very high expectations, but unfortunately I haven't noticed any results after using 2 bottles of this serum. Its very gentle and easy absorbed. I have been using it every night and it didn't make my skin sensitive. There was no peeling nor dryness either. It was in fact very moisturising. It makes skin looking plumped, but didn't do anything with wrinkles, pores or hyperpigmentation. I will be coming back to this serum anyway, as I want to have a retinol in my skincare for long term results and so far there are no many alternatives in that price range.
