Good value for the price

In the beginning I was using it every second day and the reaction on my face was positive. Then I started to use every night, later I start putting it under the eye area, on neck and breasts. I noticed that my skin becomes abit thicker, less inflammed.

I would probably have better result if I didn't use moisturing cream that was clocking my pores.

Anyway, I'll continue with this product for one more month at least and if I don't see significant result, I will get stronger retinol.

Overall I am happy with this product,

good

beberapa bulan pertama oke banget setelah ngalamin fungal acne ak berhenti. karena info dr beautvloger jika si fungal acne form ini harusnya mendapatkan skincare yg aman dari oil, faaty acid, squalane dsb aku sekarang memutuskan mencari bahan lain yg aman

Great!

it works against my acne. one week i forgot my benzol peroxide at my parents home and i survived this this for a week and it even made my skin better. and it also helps against wrinkles, not that i have any but know i am not getting any either. always use this at night, uv rays will make retinol not work
