”I love your granactive retinoids and its feeling on my face but I passed it out to my mother. I can’t see the point of using such product if I can’t see cellular turnover but only soft skin from squalane. So I decided to give this a try (my skin is somehow used to prescription adapalene so I know side effects, what to expect from vitamin A derivatives and I learned how to deal with fleaky skin). I’m not comfortable enough to use it on my whole face so I did exactly the same as I did with adapalene: used it as spot treatment on comedones, pimples, scars and PIE. And now I can see the cellular turnover! I use it just on the other day and the morning after my skin is a bit fleaky, but not something I can’t deal with. The squalane in it actually works, it makes your skin more able to get used to retinols. Love it so far.”

Effective but be careful of using it

This is my first retinol product ever. I have always been dependent on vitamin c serums for the past few years because I thought vitamin c serums are the only effective skincare products for clearer skin. But after watching multiple YouTube videos of Susan Yara, I became convinced that I should try retinol products. After 2 weeks of using this every night, I began to feel the sensitivity of my skin in the upper cheek part. I think I have surprised my skin by using this retinol. So now, I'm just using it twice a week. And I did notice my skin became healthier looking compared to before.

so good

This product is insanely GOOD, like hands down the best oil I’ve ever used. I’m currently on accutane which is extremely drying and this oil hydrates my skin like nothing else and makes it glow!! The reason why this product is so good is it’s AMAZING for hyper pigmentation or scaring. It has dramatically faded my red scars with just a week use and it helps heal breakouts so fast, it’s just unbelievable. How is this product so cheap for how amazing it is? I’m shook. So if you’re looking for an oil to help with hyperpigmentation or scaring buy this!!

A gentle start

I have been using this for 6 weeks and the results are quite good. As this is my first time using vitamin A, I built my tolerance slowly; 2 times the first week, 3 times the 2nd week, and every other day for the remaining weeks up to this day. You just need a pea size amount of this for the whole face, and avoid the eye and mouth area. I experienced dryness of skin for the 1st week but after that, my skin looks and feels great! Skin doesn't oil up that much anymore, blackheads and whiteheads lessened therefore skin looks clearer and brighter. A good start before jumping to higher concentration vitamin A.

HOLY GRAIL, BESH!!

OK. I don’t know if it’s the specific retinal or my new skin care routine, but I have definitely seen a significant change in my complexion. I recently developed acne, and have been looking for products over the past year that help with this. This is the only thing I’ve use that has actually been helpful. The only reason I have I don’t Give it five stars is that I’ve only been using it for a month. I will continue to review it after I see more results!

hands down

If I could give this product 6 stars, I would. It is absolutely amazing. I haven't had any issues with peeling or any really uncomfortable issues at all. The 0.5% retinol worked WONDERS for my skin. It feels so soft and smooth. I searched and searched for a product that would help with the texture on my skin. This stuff is a miracle worker. My pores on my nose looked smaller after one use and when I say that my skin felt soft and smooth, I mean, it felt hydrated, soft like I've rarely felt it before and it helped my makeup to apply even more smoothly. It's an amazing product, hands down!
