Cystic acne beware!! Contains Coconut oil derivatives

I was really excited to try this serum. I had heard great things about retinoids for oily acne prone skin types. I checked the ingredients list before purchasing and was happy to see it was alcohol, essential oil and fragrance free. The consistency feels like a very runny oil similar to grapeseed oil. It soaks in well and didn't cause any irritation in the first week of using it. Or so I thought.

The second week, however, was a different story. I hadn't had any cystic acne for months and my skin was finally on it's way to clearing. My focus now was to control oil and fade acne scars. But two weeks in, I felt a few hard and sore lumps dwelling below the surface of my chin and cheeks. Also painful whiteheads scattered around my nose and chin. I knew exactly what was coming. They all came to a head when I was seeing my skin therapist so she got the honour of painfully extracting them from my pores. On further investigation into my skincare routine this was the only product I had recently added, so it had to be the culprit. I jumped on incidecoder.com and researched the ingredients a 4th and final time.

Nice for newbie

I have only really just started taking notice and care of skin. I recently turned 30 and have started to notice lines on my face. This product has really helped lessen these and leaves me feeling more confident. Also the face smelling good afterwards is an added bonus

Wriknle free future

I have only been using this sporadically for the past 2 weeks, approx 4 times. So I can't tell yet but it is wonderfully light to apply to the skin it does take a good five minutes to soak in, between applying this and then moisturizer. But I love how it feels
