Retinol. A skincare ingredient most of you will have heard of, yet one many are unsure about. Rightly so?
No. If you ask me, and you kind of do by visiting this blog, anyone should use a Vitamin A product. The question is not if, the question should be which one!
And to help you answer that I sat down and recorded a video, answering all the question I had received throughout the last months. Of course the title “Everything you need to know” is hybris and should not stop you from asking away in the comments. But it is catchy, don´t you think?
I have to admit, when I first started using the M. Asam Pure Vitamins Retinol Youth Concentrate *, I was a little at loss. I had only Sunday Riley Luna to compare it to, and as you can read here that one left me a little confused about the hype. Now I had another retinol on my hands, claiming to be gentle and suitable for sensitive skin, and while I couldn´t disagree with that, I just had no idea what a regular retinol would feel like.
But then I went to see my dermatologist. And because I suffer from cystic acne around my jaw line, we decided to try a prescription strength retinol. To ease into it, we started with the lowest available concentration.
Usually my skin is combination/oily and not sensitive at all. It takes everything without complaining. But one week in with the treatment and it was an irritated, dehydrated mess.
And in the light of this new experience, I feel quite different about the M. Asam Pure Vitamins Retinol Youth Concentrate *.
