Such a gentle product to introduce Vitamin A to your routine. I’m moving over to the 0,1% Retinaldehyde soon, but I was very pleased with this product.

So light on the skin and no adverse reactions thus far. Worth every penny

Bought this as part of acne treatment for dry, sensitive skin.
zero adverse reaction and did not dry my skin. Started using it once a week, worked up to every night.
helped reduced breakouts. planning to upgrade to retinaldehye as skin is no longer sensitive (thanks to Skin functional!).
