Throughout the first month of usage, I remember not breaking out, not massively enough for me to notice. At the time, I was actually dealing with a different type of breakout due to the heavy pollution. I felt inserting a retinol product would help the skin to also regenerate from within, and it did help to push out congestions, resulting in a smoother skin.
For a 1.5% potency, I want to say that it’s quite tamed. I expected it to be more substantial considering this is the highest amount of Retinol I’ve ever used to date. It didn’t irritate my skin nor dried it out. No dry patches, no tightness. Maybe it’s the time-released technology. Maybe it’s because of the silicone and Squalane that act as emollient, keeping the skin moisture in. One thing for sure, I always make sure to keep my skin well hydrated and moisturized.
I’d say 30 ml bottle goes a long way. I usually use about 10 drops (or more maybe) every time almost every night and it still lasted me for months. Will I come back to it? Hem, maybe later. The idea of finishing another bottle is making me queasy. I want to try other product at the moment. I still have a fresh unopened bottle though
