Nice product!

Been using this product for 2 months and I do enjoy it. I was a bit worried about oily consistency as I have acne prone skin, and there is jojoba oil in the ingredient list, but so far this product hasn't broke me out and it hasn't been irritating at all. After proper skin moisturization and usage of this Granactive Retinoid I do feel like my fine lines have improved.
The only drawback I can find, package indicates that you can use the product just 3 months after opening the package and it's quite unreal to use up the whole product in such a short time.

Is on for the money

to be honest i am half bottle through and i did not notice any improvement , it is oily and i would prefer it as a serum to be able and add some moisturizer on top, it is not heavy but does not apply fast enough into the skin,
obviously being so oily can use it only at night , and it is not enough for moisturizing
