I'm new to skin care. I've only been on a regimen for a month. I got this 3 weeks into my regimen, when I saw enough resilience to my skin to handle what I had read could be a strong product.
This was amazing from the first application. It immediately felt tight on my forehead. I know this is because it was effectively acting as a desiccant to my skin, but still, its function could be felt immediately.
I've been using it about 10 days now and the retinization has been very mild. It has caused some acne, which I fully expected and was prepared for and I tiny bit of peeling.
I might be a little sensitized as well, but that's not really a concern to me. I can take quite a bit of pain on my face.
I use it in the morning, every morning. I didn't ease into it because I spent 3 weeks prior preparing myself for it.
I use a total of 4 drops (literal drops) on my cheeks forehead and chin. It has been a truly excellent experience for me.
As I use so little, I can easily see this mini lasting a month and a half, at which time I will buy another mini. I plan to do the retinol 3 months on, 3 months off. I'm using SPF50 sunblock every day I use it.

I love this serum. I've gotten two of the travel sized bottles just to really try it out and test it before spending a large amount of money on a regular size. This product is awesome! It leaves my skin dewy looking without making it oily. It leaves my skin fresh all day. It does get a tad shiny throughout the day, but nothing out of the ordinary. I have extremely oily skin and this doesn't make to worse. It actually seems to make it better. Products wear a lot better throughout the day and it really soaks into the skin. I haven't seen the BIGGEST improvement in texture/ lines/ dark spots, but I've only been using it for 3 weeks, and for a short amount of time the results are slowly showing! Don't be scared to try it. The price may be hefty, but I find myself reaching for this and using less products on my face on a day to day basis.
Not for sensitive skin

I was excited to try this product as it sound like it will target my problematic areas: signs of wrinkles and discoloration. I used it as directed, day and night and after the third day, I had to stop because I felt like it was burning my face (red) and it burns when I apply moisturizer over it. I did however feel like the layers started peeling which is a good thing but the retinol is too strong for my sensitive skin.
Love this vitamin C

This was just what I had hoped for, I will be buying full size when I run out. So Glad they had small travel size. It made a difference in my skin in just one week !!

Glad I didn't buy the full size bottle, expensive enough at the trial size price point, used the entire bottle which took about 4 days, no noticeable difference in skin tone, texture, clarity or tightness, just felt like an over priced light weight oil on my face, has some smell to it which was a bit stinky, this was not hydrating.

I was so excited to use this product I jumped right into two times a day. I saw an immediate difference on a few of my old acne spots and on a particularly annoying line on my forehead. Unfortunately the twice a day was too much for my skin and i started getting a few dry spots so I did what I should have done to begin with and cut down. Once I switched to nights only and my skin regulated it has been great! It feels so light going on and soaks into my face so quickly I love it!! A little goes a long way and like I said earlier I am loving the results!
Had skin reaction
Maria A from TN
I want to love this product but my skin says otherwise, the first 2 days I used I woke up with little red bumpy texture in my face and I had to stop for couple days and tried again same thing happen! The smell is so overwhelming I can almost taste it every time I put it on and gives me headache, if you are sensitive on smell do not use this product ,wont be using this product again. Hope I can return it, good thing I purchased the travel size which cost less.
