    Comments about Retinol Advanced Brightening Serum:

    This is a nice lightweight serum with retinol as well as some other skin-beneficial ingredients if you're looking for a retinol product for use during the day. Just be sure to wear a moisturizer with SPF over it. I alternate this product in the mornings with olay regenerist regenerating serum fragrance free, followed by moisturizer with SPF. I've used it for about 2 weeks and I do feel that my skin is smoother after use. I'm not sure of the retinol concentration in this product, but it's definitely less than the retinol product I use at night (alpha skin care retinol res-q) since my skin is significantly different after using that at night. However, I prefer to use more gentle and protective products during the day and save the powerhouse products for evening. All in all, this product is worth a try.

      Comments about Retinol Advanced Brightening Serum:

      I started using this because I wanted to find a less pricey retinoid. This works as well as more expensive brands and is less drying. My skin is very oily and I've had no irritation using this product. My skin is smooth and soft and my pores are minimized. I use it daily and I have found that I have little need for foundation anymore.

              This product did not work for me and I really wanted it to. I have combination skin meaning oily in some parts and normal in others. This product dried out my skin and made me break out. Did not work for my skin type.
