Effective for aging skin

saw great review online...
retinol is one of the powerful ingredient to helps on reducing the fine lines, wrinkles and other aging skin problems..
bought one bottle for my 60+ years old mom to try..
the effect was significant...
only 2 weeks of application, can see the skin become firmer...
according to my mom, face will feels abit tingling or itchy after first application but this tingling will goes away after few application...
more effective than the Japan branded "S" anti aging products..
