I LOVE this product
I LOVE this product!!!
I am 46 year old woman who has struggled with hormonal acne and acne scarring for a few years. I have tried so many different products and nothing worked. My hormonal acne was effecting my self-esteem and making me depressed. The Retinal Serum is the FIRST product that has ever really worked for me. My skin is absolutely amazing. I would recommend this product to everyone.

Game Changer for Cystic Acne
If you suffer from acne, specifically adult acne of the cystic variety I IMPLORE you to give this a shot! I'm 26 and have been dealing with breakouts since middle school. I was able to keep my teenage acne under control but once I hit 20 my skin started to change, as did my breakouts. Benzoyl peroxide creams weren't working anymore and I tried everything under the sun, including a complete 180 of my diet. My acne has never been severe but moderate and consistent. I would get the painful red and inflamed pimples along with the painful deep under-the-skin cystic ones. By the time one healed another would pop up. I finally decided to try and see if a retinol product would do anything for me and after having some improvement woth Philosophy's "Help Me" cream I wanted to see if I could find a cheaper alternative. Low and behold, I stumbled upon this and HOLY BATMAN I'M GLAD I DID! This serum has COMPLETELY stopped my breakouts. I repeate: COMPLETELY. It has been a little less than a month and I don't even get the little redness or bump at the start of pimple formation now. I use this about five nights a week (two nights a week I use a vitamin c serum instead) under a basic no-frills moisturizer. I'm careful about not using other products witg strong ingredients that might compete with it. This is honestly the best product to ever happen to my skin. I've even noticed that it got rid of a fine line I was getting on my forehead. Also, I haven't had any problems with dryness from this product. Honestly, if you suffer from breakouts TRY THIS!!!

I wanted to use it for at least 30 days before writing a review. I can't do a fair review, unless I explain how I use it to get amazing results.
I use 4 of their products at the same time.
-Total Repair Eye Gel
-Vitamin C Serum
-Advanced Age-Defying Moisturizer
So, I will explain how I use them and my results.
To get the best out of these products I suggest doing microdermabrasion first. It will remove all the dead skin and allow the products to penetrate deeper.
On a daily bases, I use the Total Repair Eye Gel every morning and every night. I use the Vitamin C Serum every morning, along with the Advanced Age-Defying Moisturizer, then I apply Aveeno Positively Radiant SPF 30. I used the Retinal Serum and Advanced Age-Defying Moisturizer at night.
Make sure to exfoliate your skin every other day to get rid of the dead skin that will be servicing.
I also started doing micro needling twice a month at home, using a .75 roller (best for acne scars and wrinkles). It helps the products penetrate deeper. You can get it on AlumiGogo. Do your research on it first. You can message me, if you want more information on how I use it.
After a month, my skin is glowing! Under my eyes the skin is firm and I have zero lines. I didn't really have any darkening, so I'm using it more as a preventive measure. Now, my makeup goes on silky smooth. I have actually stopped wearing as much makeup, because my skin is so radiant. I'm just using a tinted moisturizer for daily wear. I also have had these deep lines on my neck since I was a teenager and the lines are getting less noticeable. Hopefully, they disappear over time.
Note: The first couple of weeks my skin was flaking a little. So, for a couple of days I just used the Aveeno moisturizer only. That helped stop the flaking. Then, I went back to the products. There was no more flaking after that.

I love the Retinol Serum.
I love it, I got it because I had really bad bags under my eyes. Using a combination of the Retinol serum and the anti aging cream the bags are gone. I love it and will keep using it. I am a 61 year old man and my face is virtually wrinkle free and the under eye bags are gone.

Pretty Good w Fine Lines
I'm only 31 but I thought I'd try to get ahead with my little crows feet. Especially since I have dry skin. Been using this on and off for 2 months and didn't notice a difference really. That's why I took pictures. After comparing before 2 months and after, there was a noticeable difference! Not a big one, but then again my fine lines are small.
I don't know why everyone says this isn't sticky, in my opinion it's sticky when applying it. Also the squirt bottle pump is stiff, I end up launching out more than I need every time. The first week I used it every night and I broke out with a few zits, but I think my skin got used to it, plus after the first week I used it only every 2/3 nights which probably helped too.
It did what it said so overall, I'm pleased!

You made a believer out of me
I love this serum, I use it along with the Vitamin C Serum and the Hyaluronic Acid Serum, beginning with the hyaluronic acid and ending with the Retinol. I have been using these serums for a little over a year now and the results are very noticeable. I wanted to show some before and after photos but was not successful in adding photos, but the combination I use works for me.

Just started using this about 2 weeks ago and I can see a decrease in the deeper lines in my face. I've tried a lot of products and this seems to work the best.

Works on my silly sensitive combination skin
I have used this product for a year and have to say I love it.
I have combination skin with super dry spots on my chin, nose and sides of my cheeks. My skin is crazy sensitive to any changes in weather or products so I added this product to once a week and gradually over 6 weeks increased to pretty much every day. (I forget sometimes).
I haven't noticed changes in wrinkles, but in all honesty I wasn't really paying much attention. I don't seem to have any new ones, so there is that. The most dramatic change has been the redness in my skin is gone. I haven't needed a crazy, heavy night creme in months, when I was using one every day for years.
I did make a few other changes in my daily skin care process (changed cleansers and toners), but this was the first and seemed to have the most dramatic impact on redness, general tone and oily spots. I have only had mild breakouts in my oily spots in the last year.
The texture is great. I like this one over the lotion based ones, because I can slap a better cream over it once it has absorbed and not aggravate the oily patches of my skin. It also pretty much has no smell, which is what I hated about the previous retinol product I used to use.
Also 1 oz has lasted me a long time. I use one to two pumps every day and I'm barely broken into my second bottle.
So yes, I love it and it seems to be doing what I wanted it to do

Great for Acne & Evening Out Skin Tone
When I turned 30, my skin went crazy. I went from never having an issue with acne to breaking out all over my face. I tried every skin care system I could get my hands on. Some would work for a while, but then the acne would come back. After years of this, I had acne scarring & discoloration, with new acne on top.
Someone recently recommended I try retinol, & I found this product on AlumiGogo. I couldn't be happier with the results! The picture on top is my forehead 2.5 weeks ago, & the one on bottom is my forehead today. My acne has improved a TON & discoloration is starting to improve, as well. I can also already see an improvement in fine lines.
Using this product has made me feel so much more confident. I'm so glad I found it!

My first experience w. a retinol serum--and it's a positive one! I've used this product at night for about 2 weeks now. My skin loves it. It's clearer, smoother, and that's after only a short time. I look forward to the long term use of this product. Plusses: No fragrance, no colors, easy dispenser, good size for travel.
