    Feliz de haber comprado este producto, redujo significativamente las manchas de acné que tenía. Cumple con su promesa de valor, se siente super gentil en la piel y es perfecto para piel grasa (obviamente úsenlo bajo recomendación de su dermatólogo o médico y con precaución porque se pueden generar reacciones alérgicas, etc)

    but if you wear it during the day, be sure to put something with a sunscreen over it! I got mild sunburn twice before I learned my lesson. I don’t know why it doesn’t come with a sunscreen in it or call itself a night serum. However, it and/or my hyaluronic acid serum have transformed my face in less than a month. They work well together. I wait about 5 minutes before applying this product over the HA. I lost a significant amount of weight and my 60+ year old skin did not snap back on its own. Only my deepest eye line remains and it is muted. Two disappeared. My forehead lines are also much reduced. It has helped my poor neck a little, so I’m still searching for some heavy duty firming/lifting product for my neck and under my chin. But do I love it? Absolutely!

    It definitely helps with removing visible marks but because it’s retinol it takes awhile, also it does not fully get rid of the marks ( at least for me but that could be because I’ve only been using it for three months)

    Can’t say I’ve seen dramatic results after using pretty consistently for about 2 months, but overall skin texture and tone has improved and I’m no longer experiencing the occasional hormonal breakouts I used to… doesn’t seem to have a huge effect on more significant wrinkles so far but it feels moisturizing without being oily/greasy and smells nice. As with most retinol products there was about a 2 week purging phase (increased breakouts, but no real irritation/burning) while my skin adjusted, but haven’t experience ANY breakouts since. Overall I’m impressed with the results and will definity continue using

    I swear I have tried it all! Mainly to battle my melasma (hyper pigmentation caused by birth control pill) from prescribed creams to fancy over priced Beverly Hills dermatology creams to decently priced best sellers – only to finally have landed with a super affordable brand that ACTUALLY works. I don’t know if it’s the toner or the hyaluronic serum that did the trick – doesn’t matter – my every skin care routine step these days is CeraVe from cleanser to toner to serums to moisturizer. And the MONEY I’m saving!!! 🤩

    I (F23), and everyone else, wanted to start using retinol to help improve fine lines, pore appearance, sun damage, etc. I like this product because the concentration is low, it’s very affordable, and it’s less harsh than other brands.I started out using this once per week, and a month or so later went to it every 4ish days. BIG mistake lol.I don’t have dry or oily skin, but my skin is sensitive. I started getting very dry all around my jaw and forehead. I stopped using it for a couple of weeks to try to repair my skin barrier, and the dryness persisted for about a month even when I was using it only every 2.5 weeks and using very moisturizing products in between. I’ve heard that peeling/purging is inevitable and unavoidable but I don’t know to what extent. I also felt like I saw an increase in acne around my jaw for that same month, but maybe it was hormonal. It’s impossible to tell.Overall I still use this product and like it, but I wouldn’t consider it moisturizing, and I personally have to use it sparingly. Work your way up slowly to using it more often. I haven’t seen a ton of improvement in my fine lines or dark spots, but I haven’t been able to use it consistently yet either.

    Love how affordable and good Cerave products are, so decided to try this as a “dipping my toes in the water” type of retinol product to help reduce fine lines and acne scars. After using this for a few months, here are some tips I’d like to share:- DO NOT start nightly if you’ve never used a retinol product before! Your skin needs time to adapt to new routines. I would recommend using once a week, then twice, etc., eventually you can use this safely every night.- It does not specify, but I DO NOT recommend using this during the day, or if you really, really want to, please use sunscreen. This is because retinols are not as effective under sunlight and it causes your skin to be more sensitive to UV light, which will cause more damage long-term.- This works pretty slow compared to other retinols. I found it to be quite mild, so don’t expect your ice pick scars or enlarged pores to show any difference any time soon. You really have to create a consistent skincare routine to see change.- DO NOT stack your Vitamin C, AHA/BHA toners, and acne products with this. I made this mistake when I first started using the serum and woke up with sensitive red skin with breakouts. Now I only use Vitamin C in the mornings, apply benzoyl peroxide/salicylic acid as needed when not using this serum, and tone with AHA/BHA a couple of times in the week during the day- You should still moisturize, this serum isn’t a replacement for face cream. Your skin will only create more oil if it doesn’t feel hydrated, so if you have oily/combo skin, find a non-greasy light moisturizer, but don’t skip it!It’s not a miraculous holy grail type of product, but I found that with consistency and patience, there are some visible results, so I will keep buying since it’s non-prescription and not too expensive. My skin looks more plump, but there are still scars, so I think I will incorporate micro-needling into my regimen as well.
