      Great product!!

      So far I really love this retinol. I've been using it for 2 weeks! It's super hydrating and my skin looks SO GOOD the next morning. I use it every other day alternating it with the Vit C oil. Best retinol I've ever used. I have issues with discoloration from previous acne and this stuff is awesome. The Vitamin C oil is magic as well. Please never stop selling this!

      Great retinol product!

      Love the consistency of this serum - it’s not too harsh on my skin. I only use it 2-3 times a week, but have noticed a minor reduction in my scarring/hyperpigmentation after just a few weeks

      IN LOVE

      I'm fair skinned, I have pustular hormonal acne with lots of leftover hyperpigmentation and boxcar scarring. I bought this because I was previously using Differin and wasn't really seeing results. I decided to bite the bullet and get this anyway. And oh my god. I've been using this since the start of the year and I've hardly been breaking out. I use about 5-6 drops on my face every night with a moisturizer on top. I've been noticing a great improvement in my skin texture and hyperpigmentation! My breakouts have calmed down so much. I hope they never run out of this stuff, it's a liquid miracle.

      Good retinol!

      I have chronic cystic acne & acne scars. I’ve been using this for about a month and have not seen a reduction in my cystic acne. However, this product does work well to even out my overall skin tone! I will definitely continue using this and would recommended to others!

      I didn't think I could love BANISH anymore that I already do, until I tried this serum. YET AGAIN my skin has improved EVEN more. What I love about this serum is unlike other retinols, its gentle enough to be applied every night and the benefits are noticeable in after the FIRST night. I'm definitely blogging about this product. I'm hooked.
